He is on cloud nine, and I am so proud of him! He is a mustang (if anyone else here is military) so I think it is a very big deal!

Sorry that wasn't baby related chat - I just wanted to share our awesome news!
Congratulations! And yes, for an ocean front home in Hawaii!

I hope everyone responded positively!

We're telling our church tomorrow, and then I'll let it out on Facebook in the afternoon. I'm excited!

Wow, that's wonderful! Congrats to you both! Does this change your DH's orders to be deployed when the babies arrive at all?

[QUOTE=SqueakersMama;14301218]That sounds horrible! Maybe you could try liquid or gummy vitamins. I haven't used them myself, but they look like they could be easier on the tummy.

I grabbed some today for DD and I to share - they were yummy and I felt fine with them! Now I just need to see how they compare with the prescription ones that the clinic gave me...

That was what I did the other night hoping it would help. I felt odd, but did fall asleep for a bit - but then woke up and had to run to the bathroom. BLECH!

I got some gummies tonight and so far so good! I had also just finished a bottle of water so maybe that helped too!

When I was pregnant with my DD my Dr told me to eat a bowl of total cereal everyday until I could take my prenatals. Total has a bunch of vitamins in it so I did that until I was over m/s, then I took my prenatals.
I was thinking of you as I added two different boxes of Total to the grocery cart today! Great hint!

I was drinking ginger soother but it's so sugary, that I have backed off a bit.
I'm trying the unisom and b6 tonight. Then if I am brave enough later in the week, I might try adding in the prescription prenatal too! I can not believe they recommend unisom!

Thanks everyone! I am so proud of him and it was a fantastic Christmas present for sure!

Unfortunately it does not change his deployment timeline. We knew it was coming, just wasn't expecting all of these babies to come at the same time.

Whoohoo! I keep worrying that I am going to slip. I keep wanting to "like' baby related pages but haven't as I am afraid that it will give me away!

Congrats on "coming out!"

Aw, I'm sorry! You seem to have a really good attitude about it, though. :-) Do you have a mom, relative, or friend who will come out for the first few weeks and help out?
