This little girl is going to be a big sister…..
To this lil’ bean we have affectionately named mtoto mchanga
(Kiswahili for newborn baby, literally baby sand).
*other updates include that I am still as sick as a dog and basically move from the bed to the couch, to the toilet to throw up. Argh! We took a trip to the mainland to see a doctor and get some more foods we think will help. The great news is that the baby looks good, strong heartbeat and right on schedule for growth. The bad news is I have lost a bit of weight (normally WooHoo! but not so much right now, although I swear my pants are already tight…how does that happen?) So, the doctor there prescribed 3 different types of anti-nausea medications used in Europe, all 3 were a bust and the last one (the strongest) made me so loopy I could barely stand up AND it did not stop the nausea. So that was fun: I was just like a semi-comatose, drunk version of my puking self. Poor Jason! He continues to earn husband of the millennium award for taking care of Annikah and me. Other great news: My Mama and sister on on their way in a few weeks to give him a much needed break: yeah! We are ok, our team is amazing and helping with everything and I know this will pass. Sigh. For now, back to the couch and other slothful activities.
