Sprinklers, nausea and the little bean

I've been really enjoying only working 3 days a week. It stinks a little that I have to work every Saturday and Sunday night, but man, I will have been off 4 days in a row by the time I get back to work. For the second time in 3 weeks!!! Yesterday, I took the kids to one of the sprinkler parks in a nearby big town. They're these water parks where they have several types of sprinklers, fountains, etc that you can run through. I think maybe they are also called zero depth pools? Anyway, my son LOVED it. Daughter, not so much. She clung to me and didn't want anything to do with it. She actually laid down on the towel and covered herself with her brothers towel. The water was cold, but it was about 90 degress, and how many kids worry about that anyway? Well, today we filled up a kiddie pool and played in that. That water was cold, but both kids had a good time. Today I realized that the nausea I've been "blessed" with this pregnancy is getting better. I'm actually keeping meals down, I'm not constantly queasy and it's been since Sunday that I actually threw up. But of course, being the worry wort that I am, Ijust hope it isn't because the little bean stopped growing. I'm sure it's probably fine because I still feel pregnant and there's no reason for me to worry. Next week I get a free ultrasound. The sono techs at the office are trying to get certified in something or another and they have to do so many sonos to do that. So, I agreed to let them practice. It's going to take about an hour, which seems really long, but oh well.

My sister takes her son to their local sprinkler park and he LOVES it. Jacob (2 y.o.) has tons of energy and there's something about water that tires kids out. She's needless to say they're out there quite a bit.

As for the "blessing" of morning sickness, mine was completely gone by about 14 or 15 wks.So maybe you're getting close to being done with yours. That's great that you'll get to have a free ultrasound, hopefully that'll all go well.
