Feeling good!

This second round of chemo was actually better than the first!  It has been 1 week and I have had no constipation!!!  I know, I celebrate the weirdest things!  Because I didn't get nausea from the first round, they lowered my nausea medicine this time and that really helped.  I think we found the right balance.  No constipation,  I was able to sleep each night without any sedatives, and I still have some energy.  My hair however, is still falling out!  The peach fuzz is slowly going away and it is weird, patchy and thinner.  I am getting used to my wig altho I still love to take it off the minute I get home, or sometimes as soon as I leave the work parking lot.   
So the only uncomfortable thing I have been feeling - Heartburn! But it's ok!  Cause that's a pregnancy thing and I will take on any pregnancy pains!  She is moving more too!  I can't believe she will be here in about 9 weeks!  We met a great pediatrician yesterday as well!  Another thing accomplished.

This weekend was very productive and we have been keeping busy.  The baby room was cleaned out and mostly painted.  (Thanks to my dad and Larry).   We cleaned out closets, my mom did my laundry and made my bed, and my mom and grandmother helped make favors for Sarah's baby shower!!  I just managed everyone and made lunch and dinner! 

Today my mother in law comes in for a 3 week stay!  I am excited to see her and we have a lot planned, my baby shower is this weekend!    So for the next few days I am going to take it easy so on Sunday I feel great to see all my family and friends!  xoxo
