The tv area is nice. That left side would drive me insane! When I get home I will show you what I do with their toys. I like that you can't see them, but since xmas we haven't purged their old toys yet, so they are peeking out of the lids.

I had a bunch of crazy dreams last night. One of them was that you girls randomly came over and I was freaking out inside since I hadn't planned something special to make for dinner! Lol.

Haha Jessica. The dreams have been pretty crazy for me, too. It's weird though. I feel like I dream ALL night, waking several times to pee or roll over. By the time I get up in the morning, I can't remember what I dreamed about, just the "feeling" I got from the dreams. Most of them are stressful dreams, so I'm glad I can't remember the details. I know one last night included loose lions at a resort that was owned by these people who I thought were my grandparents, but then I figured out they weren't. That's about all I remember lol.

Kathy, it's so hard to organize when 1. it's not something you naturally like to do, 2. your space is cluttered with things someone else makes you feel you can't get rid of, and 3. there's just not enough room.

I hate clutter, but I'm not a natural organizer. If I have enough room to organize things in a way that everything has it's place, I'm pretty good at putting things there. But when space is cramped and not everything has a particular home, chaos ensues! Also, I'm good at keeping up with putting everything in it's place for a while, but as soon as a few things aren't put away, the whole house gets messy and I have to have a big overhaul cleaning day to get things back to how they should be.

I feel for you on your husband's things. When we got married, I moved into my husbands tiny apartment. I had a bunch of stuff but I felt like there was nowhere to put it, so I stripped down to the essentials and packed everything else away in the garage. I felt like I was living in HIS space and that I didn't have the right to ask him to get rid of or move his things (even if most of his things were old license plates and model cars lol).

Luckily for me, he hated the clutter even more than I did and he packed up a lot of his stuff and put it in storage. When we moved to where we live now, it felt like a fresh start and we had enough space that I felt comfortable telling him the office was his space to do with what he wanted and the rest of the house was mine to decorate and organize! It worked out pretty well.

Anyway, I do know where you're coming from and that's a hard position to be in. Maybe "rearranging for baby" can be your excuse to kick some of his crap to the curb lol.

Haha I try talking to him about it but he says he has memories attached to everything. One day I'll have a basement full of his memories! :)

When I was a kid, my little sister and I shared a room. She had sooo many stuffed animals that I had no room to put my actual necessities. I convinced my step dad to make her put a bag full of them in the top of the closet every now and then so she could get used to the idea of less, until eventually a good portion of them ended up in the garage. Maybe you can work something like this out with your husband Kathy. Where he boxes up some things he doesnt really use any more. Like maybe once a month till baby comes. That might give you a lot more room.

Ugh. For quite a while I've been feeling pretty good, but the last 3 days the morning sickness has been hanging around again. I thought I was done with it!

I have tons of saliva again, too, which I keep swallowing and I think that's adding to the stomach upset. I am so thirsty all the time and end up drinking two or three water bottles full each evening, meaning I wake up at least 3 times each night to pee (usually more like 6!).

I'm just uncomfortable tonight and feel like complaining!

I still feel sick in the evening but not nearly as bad. I've got tons of saliva too, I try to spit it out because I know it makes my stomach upset. And I get up a lot at night still too so you're not alone! I hear it's normal for first trimester symptoms to stick around until 15 weeks!
Someone in my family told me about her friend who has this disease while she's pregnant where her morning sickness is so severe from beginning to end that she has to be in the hospital with a feeding tube for 9 months. It makes me not feel so bad when I think of that.

I wake up every 1.5-2 hours to go pee and get a drink of water most nights. Now my hips have started hurting when I am trying to sleep.

That's hyperemesis gravidarium. Basically its morning sickness that doesn't go away and requires iv fluids and sometimes tube feedings. It's pretty rare, but I have known a couple girls who had it.

Awful! I think I would stop after one baby if I had that. I couldn't be bed ridden for even 1 month or I'd lose my mind.
My hips hurt if I lay on the couch but the firmness of my bed helps that. I think mines sciatica though because it goes down my legs too. I'm all too familiar with the pain after having herniated discs and surgery. The arthritis stuck with me so I never know what's pregnancy related or just my crappy back when it comes to physical pains. Maybe both!

Good news: it's not morning sickness.
Bad news: I think I have the stomach flu.

I was up 5 or 6 times to throw up last night and I can't eat afterwards. Yay.

Yeah I couldn't handle a pregnancy like that. My great grandma had that when dhe was pregnant with my grandpa and the only thing she could keep down was 7up or sprite. I can't remember which. But she wrote them a letter about how it and they sent her a couple of cases for free! Her husband wouldn't let her try again for a girl, because she lost so much weight and had an awful time.
I sleep with a body pillow, and even that now is not cutting it. The only time I am comfortable is kinda on my back, but then I feel my uterus heavy and pressing back. I cant win at night. Lol

Aww becca, i hope you feel better soon! Glad its not the ms though!

Stomach flu shouldn't last long! Hope you feel better sometime today!
I've been looking for a new body pillow online but I don't see one that's reviews match the price! I used one last time but it's at my mom's and I'd like one here. We have a king size bed now so I think there's room for a big one. They're just so pricey and sounds like they go flat pretty quickly. I'm usually a back sleeper myself, but the pressure is pretty uncomfortable so I alternate sides every time I wake up. I use a shredded memory foam pillow between my knees and it's just big enough that I can get my belly on it for now but I know when my stomach gets bigger it'll flatten the pillow so it's just good for now!
So tired today! I can't wait for this coffee aversion to go away!!

I had a 10 dollar regular body pillow from target that lasted from when I was prego with zari till 2014. But it is getting really hard. So I bought the same one again and its getting flat but is soft. I am thinking about combining them both in one pillow slip when it gets bad enough.
