Totally adorable. Thanks for sharing. ;) Hope you enjoy all the snow we've just gotten here - we're supposed to get more on Thursday . Lots of nice fresh powder for you. Or for Bryan, at least. ;)

After your nap, you know, you have to change your About Me write up.


Great pictures, and a great expression! I have always felt that I looked completely different as a baby than I do as an adult. I can't even recognize myself in most baby photos, and if I ever made the same facial expressions, none of them were recorded on film. I don't start to look like myself until roughly age 3, and even then it's a stretch.

Hah, great pictures! So glad the trip is going well. We miss you! But we're sick, so it's just as well you are not being exposed to our germs anyway.

Awww! I don't have pics of myself like that, but I do have eerily similar poses of myself and my little mini-me daughter!
Skiing! With nausea! And pregnant! I am impressed - I have never gone skiing!
Increasing nausea is a good sign, but not fun! Try very, very cold (or hot) drinks - nothing room temperature.

I'm glad you can still ski, even if you're feeling ill. (I'm not sure whether or not to express sympathies on having nausea - it is obnoxious, but on the other hand, isn't it fantastic when you're finally getting real live symptoms? :))

The pictures are too cute :) I have to admit I was a little disappointed that the "older you" is age 16. I thought maybe that was a picture of the look on your face when you got your BFP ;) Glad you're enjoying your vacation!

Saltines. Lots of 'em. And candied ginger. The only means by which I did NOT vomit on my students during my first trimester. Take courage; the Bone-Melting Nausea will go away eventually.

Of course, after pregnancy, you will never be able to look at a Saltine again, but it's a small price to pay.

Have a good time up in NH! We love to go skiing there and in Vermont, so I hope you're having a good time and are able to ski despite your nausea.

I'm not going to give you any advice on the nausea thing, despite having a nasty stomach virus, because every pregnant lady I've ever known says that none of the so-called remedies works.

I hope you feel better soon, but "congratulations" on your real-life symptoms.

Well, I swore by pickles for nausea control. Just a whiff could fix me right up.

I love the idea that you will able to look for this cute expression in your baby and compare photos in a side by side like this.

I'm just so happy for you and hope this pregnancy will be a very healing experience for you. My infertility troubles went on for many years, and I have to say that my one pregnancy itself did heal me; that in itself was a gift, and to have a child on top of that gift was just sublime.

When I was pregnant I used to forcefeed myself crackers first thing in the morning and throughout the day because I'd heard that the nausea was worse on an empty stomach.

I still felt awful everytime I smelled...well...everything.

But, hey, it means those pregnancy hormone levels are increasing!

My friend is nauseous and tired, and I couldn't be happier for her!

Enjoy your vacation, nausea and all.

Arwen - reading these comments as a single, baby-less woman, I have to laugh at all the advice you've been offered. If I could, I'm sure I'd be as bad as everyone else.


Have a great time!

Your pics are cute.

I found that mint helped curb my nausea, particularly in the form of gum or those red and white candies.

A friend of mine said jolly rancher candies curbed her nausea.
