Blueberry Baby

I think it's funny how so many baby sites compare the size of your growing baby to a fruit or vegetable.  According to one site I regularly use, #2 is the size of a blueberry right now.  It always blows my mind when I think about how a baby develops - it's just amazing.
I feel pretty similar to how I felt when I was pregnant with Olivia at this point.  I've had to go on progesterone again and I will say that I think it is effecting me more this time as far as making me more tired.  I can't blame it all on having a nearly-two-year-old running around.  I also have had a bit more nausea.  With Olivia it was more of a gerneral feeling all the time but not too severe.  With this baby it has been okay most of the time, but definitely worse between 3:00-7:00PM.  Ginger snaps seem to really help, but it's hard to keep Olivia from eating them all.  She LOVES them!  I've had an increase in nightmares like I did with Olivia.  I haven't stopped reading mysteries yet, but it may only be a matter of time.
By this point in my pregnancy with Olivia we had already had an ultrasound.  This was not standard procedure, but because they thought I was having a miscarriage.  I am anxiously awaiting our first peek at this new little one.  I think we will get to see #2 in about 3 1/2 weeks.
It's funny that I've been calling and thinking of this baby as #2.  Up until the time I got pregnant we always referred to our next child as Samuel or Sammy because that is the baby boy name that I have loved forever (we even said maybe "Sammie" for a girl).  For some reason though almost as soon as I got pregnant I stopped thinking this way.  I have no idea why.  Perhaps the name just isn't meant to be.
Please continue praying for an uneventful and full-term pregnancy.  Next week:  kidney bean!

Yea! for the blueberry. I'll keep praying. :) And I put peppermint oil (one drop) on my lip or nose when I start to feel sick and it can really help sometimes. Glad the gingersnaps help too though.
