Hello There Pregnancy Symptoms

Oh my goodness. I have no idea how people don't know they are pregnant until the baby is falling out of them. I have had morning sickness like it is nobody's business the last couple of days. I'm trying to eat small meals throughout the day so I don't get full and feel even more sick and it seems to be helping a little bit. I've also been drinking 64oz of water while I'm at work. I've timed it out to do 8oz of water every hour. It seems like a lot when I have my two huge nalgene bottles FULL of water every morning but when it comes down to it, I usually have to pace myself so I don't drink all my water before noon. Of course I'm going to the bathroom every couple of hours but to be honest, I actually feel pretty good about drinking that much water. My skin last week was definitely showing signs that my hormones are changing. My chin completely broke out with tiny little white heads and then I got a huge deep under the skin pimple that just hurts ALL on my chin.  I'm trying to go au natural lately so I don't have to wake up super early and do my makeup. I've been SO tired lately it seems. I'm also trying to do the aluminum free deodorant lately too. I picked up an all natural kind from Sephora that smells like Lavender Vanilla. It's smells amazing. The only down side I have noticed so far though is that I sweat like a PIG from my pits. I wind up still smelling a little "ripe" by the end of the day and wind up having to at least rinse off in the shower.

After reading back over that last paragraph it makes me sound like a sack of yuck! Haha I don't know how Derek can stand sleeping next to me at night. Planning for Little Bit #2 has been pretty fun lately. We have been  mulling over names the last couple of days and we have been trying to think of what we are going to do with Stratton's room and Stratton's play room. Stratton has his own room (which he hasn't been sleeping in lately) and he also has the room next to his (for his massive amount of toys). We are trying to decide if we want to

a) move Stratton into his toy room and make it his toy/bedroom and make his old room the nursery
b) move Stratton's toys into his bedroom and make toy room the nursery
c) move Stratton's toys into my office downstairs and make his toy room the nursery

Our problem is that Stratton has WAY too many toys that he doesn't play with anymore. Stratton also has a lot of "stuff" in his room that doesn't necessarily need to be in his room. i.e. drum kit, book shelf, random lamp. Over the next couple of months be prepared to see renovations to our house. Also, if you know anyone who needs some kids toys let me know. I think we may have to have  garage sale to get rid of most of them.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I know we did.
