"Sarah," you ask, "Where are your Thursday Threads?"
"Why have they been lacking?"
"Why is there a picture of your dog in a squirrel costume?"
"Isn't that just cruel?"

Well, yes. It is probably cruel to put my dog in a squirrel costume when I know that she hates squirrels. made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants. Her face is priceless.
Plus, I've had stuff going on in my life.
Like this
And then this
And theeeen this

I was all prepared yesterday to have the hubster take an outfit photo on our lunch break. It was a cute sweater/ skirt and tights combo. You all would have liked it. I did.
But then morning sickness happened. BIG TIME.
And you know what? I am so thankful it did.
Yesterday was the first day I actually felt pregnant pregnant. My body wasn't in pain anymore.
It was wonderful and reassuring because I knew that this little beanie of a gummy bear was growing inside of me. Granted, the little beanie was being a bit dramatic about it, but I was so thankful to feel that way.
For the past couple weeks, all I have done is worry and worry about the little gummy bear inside of me. Its health, it's well-being etc. So yesterday, when the toilet and I met face stopped worrying because I knew this babe was going to be just fine.

An interesting thing about this morning sickness bout, with Caderyn, I would get sick like maybe once a week and once it was over I was starving! Hello cupcakes!
With this new pregnancy, I was sick the rest of the day and night.
I literally could not eat or really drink anything. It was hard to move off the couch for fear of throwing up and I was passed out on the couch by 9:00 p.m.
I didn't even eat dinner. *GASP* This is a huge thing for me. I love to eat, and usually have to eat at the same time each day or I get CRANKY!  7:00 a.m. breakfast  11:30 a.m. lunch and 5:00 p.m. dinner.

So this now leads to my next thought process.
I think this baby will be a girl.

My reasonings are:
1. This baby has been very dramatic in its very early 8 week existence. See the above, highlighted links.
2. Only a little girl would keep me sick all day long. Like she will worry me sick for the next 18 years of her life. She's just reminding me what I'm in for.
3. I have an odd taste in my mouth. All of the time. Didn't have this with Caderyn.
4. I'm not craving sweets. At. All. Which is odd because all I wanted with Caderyn were cupcakes. All I want is water.

We shall see, but that's where I'm at right now.

I feel really good today! Good enough that I let the hubster take some outfit pictures. So, we'll have a new Thursday Threads next week!
