Tomorrow is the big day!

Our first Dr. appt is tomorrow. I'm so excited, and a little nervous. I just want everything to be okay and normal. We get to see the baby on the sonogram if it cooperates, and hear it's heartbeat. I can't wait!
Overall, I'm feeling pretty good, except for a yucky cold. I haven't been nearly as tired, although with the cold, I've still been napping because I want to get healthy again. I have been having headaches in the evening, but maybe that's because of the cold.
I tried to find an herbal tea last night that I could drink with some lemon and honey, but it seems like some experts discourage the consumption of herbal teas because of the unknown results in the baby. I finally had peppermint tea hoping that was safe. I'm thinking of experimenting with making my own "tea" with various fruits and herbs I know are safe. Any ideas anyone?
Well, I write more after tomorrow I would appreciate any prayers as I anticipate the appt.

Funny baby story

Today I am 10 weeks into my pregnancy. Only two more until the end of the first trimester! I can't wait! I'm ready to have more energy and feel less queasy in the afternoons. ;)

I made it through camp sucessfully- praise God! It seems like every day when I reached the "two o`clock hour" (when I get exhausted, queasy, and headachy) someone would walk up and offer to take over my post for me. It was miraculous. I was also able to grab a banana or grapefruit to eat as soon as I awoke in the morning to stave off my early morning ickies. And, my cabin was right next to the bathrooms. I couldn't have asked for a better set-up. Except maybe a warm shower or two... =)But, it's camp, what can I say?

The funniest thing happened though. One night after a long day, and a nice nap, I was doing my hair and thinking of what was to come that night, when one of the campers asked when I was due. For a few seconds, I was shocked, confused and in denial.I couldn't figure out why she would ask me that question. For a few minutes I was 18 years old all over again. Then I realized that I WAS pregnant! By the time I finished laughing at myself and stumbling over an answer, the whole cabin was laughing at me. =) It was so strange, it seems like this baby is all I think about these days, but for those few minutes, I guess it slipped my mind. I wonder if that ever happened to anyone else...?
