6w, 1d: Morning sickness... it's what the cool kids are doing!

I heart morning sickness. That's right, folks, you heard it. I almost threw up several times this morning, and while I was glad to keep my cereal down in the end, I am praying for this to happen over and over again and to keep getting worse! I can take it! I'll take anything for this baby.

By the way, we decided to call the baby "Thumper." (Not permanently, of course. Geez, he/she would hate us if we actually put that on the birth certificate.) As in, "I'm thumpin'! That's why they call me Thumper!" We want to encourage little Thumper to keep thumpin' away.

I got up my courage this morning to call the ultrasound place to ask them to send me a picture. (I HATE talking on the phone and I was so afraid that they would say "no can do.") They said they couldn't print it out on the nice carbon paper (I've heard that stuff fades over time anyway), but they could print it out on regular paper and send it to me! I was so happy... I know my biggest regret with Max was never getting a picture to hold onto, and I'm so happy to know that no matter what, I will have one of Thumper, too! Hooray! Look for that to be posted in the next few days, whenever it comes in the mail.

Okay, I'm in good spirits today and hopefully I will hold onto those for the next few weeks... I really appreciate your prayers, guys. I know Thumper is alive right now because of them!

YEAH! Have you read the Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy? LOTS of good info and made me laugh so hard and the honesty. She tells you things that your doctor doesn't or won't. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Morning sickness is always a good sign. Glad they're sending you a pic.

Yay! Enjoy your picture. And, as odd as it sounds -- I hope you keep hurling!
