These are a few of my favorite things...

Photobucket
ummmm. ummm.
Limonata, fish and ondansetron.
Each quite vital to the first 15 weeks of my pregnancy.
Yes. Baby #4.
For the record, this pregnancy is SO DIFFERENT from any of my others.
Prior to this pregnancy I hadn't puked since 2nd grade.
And that is no joke.
Also no joke, is that I honestly hadn't visited a Long John Silvers or a Captain D's...
ever?
But shoot. I have found myself in the drive through more than once lately.
Too tired to make myself something fishy...their grilled tilapia with a side of broccoli is heavenly.
The important thing is that the nausea/pukes are slowly going away.
Slowly...but surely.
I'm due at the end of September.
Considering the baby that stayed put the longest was still 2 weeks early,
I'm mentally preparing for the middle of September.
But heck, everything is so different...maybe I'll be 2 weeks late?
We are super excited to welcome this little bundle to our family, whenever he/she gets here.
I understand that by posting this on April 1st, one might believe it's a prank.
But those who live here can vouch for the fact that I've spent the last 3 months on my couch...
I don't have the energy to photoshop or procure fake medicine bottles for an April Fool's joke,
I've been on my couch afterall.

Congratulations! How exciting for your growing family. Here's hoping you feel better soon!

Sean and Janet Eyring said...

First - Woo Hoo for you guys!
Second - Too bad you don't live closer because we bought a whole case of that limonata stuff and NOBODY likes it at our house! And I could only hope that a) Janet would be pregnant, and b) that she would crave fish because I LOVE it and we never, ever get to have anything more than tuna because she doesn't like it.

Janet Johnson said...

Horray!! How very very exciting! I love that there will be another Painter baby in the world!! With kids like yours, I'm voting at least an even dozen! (that's the envy speaking) =)

I'm so sorry you've been sick! Hopefully it'll pass soon-

I used to hate fish but I am loving it now-what gives it's strange the things that change as we get older!!

Isaura said...

Ahhh soo excting/ed for your family!!! CONGRATS. I love the fish thing...so random, but so good :) Have you had the Pellegrino Aranciata?? So good too. You can get it by the case load (both flavors mixed) at Costco.

Bailey Family said...

I have been wanting to start eating healthier...eating fish they say is really good for you...maybe I should get pregnant and I will crave fish. (or not.)

Yeah for #4!

Kevin & Ashley said...

Oh CONGRATS! I don't think I told you yet! We are SO happy for you guys :)

Dave and Julie said...

Congrats! That is wonderful. Your baby will be smart with all the fish oil he/she will be getting!

Jenny said...

That is super exciting! So happy for your family! It's amazing the things we crave or in my case the things I normally loved but couldn't stand the thought of during the first trimester. Hope you start feeling better really soon! :)

Nicole said...

Oh.my.goodness. I think I had to read the line where you said you were 15 weeks pregnant about 15 times! CONGRATULATIONS! Wow. I sincerely hope you feel better soon and can't wait to hear about this fourth adventure!

Whit said...

Woo hoo! I'm so glad..we need more Painter's in this world I'm tellin ya. I can't get enough of your cute little family!

Tiffany said...

Congratulations!!!!! I am so excited for you! So sorry to hear you have been sick. I think there is NOTHING worse! I would rather go through labor than morning sickness. :) I hope it goes away soon. Can't wait to have another cute Painter in the mix! More Painters = more pictures I hope!

Buckaroo Bob said...

Yeah for baby #4!!! So excited for you guys. Sorry you have been sick though, that is never fun! I'm sure he or she will be just as darling as the first 3 little Painters!! Miss you guys!!

Tiff and Dave said...

Oops!!! That was me, not Dave's random google acct of buckeroo bob! Sorry! :)

Christy said...

hip hip, hooray! it's so exciting! how fun that our due dates are only like one week apart! i wish we lived close to each other so we could have the same scary doctor again. or maybe not that part. but we could swap pregnancy horror stories and it would be glorious. i'm so happy for you! i can't wait to find out what you're having and see the newest addition here in a few months. :)

(also, i TOTALLY relate to the time on the couch. i'm just glad we all are still alive. :))

Holbrook's said...

So happy for you! And this too shall pass, I know what you mean about a completely different experience...no fun. But it will all be fun in the end, and worth it all!

McAtee Family said...

Yeah!! So happy for you!

Jill Revell said...

Hooray! That is so exciting! Sorry you've been sick though :(

Court and Britt said...

Congrats Tara! Very excited for you. And I am RIGHT THERE WITH YOU, man #4 pregnancy is rough!!! I can't believe how much different this pregnancy has been for me, they even checked for twins at 12 weeks to see if maybe that was the cause. Just ONE thank goodness! Sure hope you feel better soon. I am 19 weeks, still on my nausia medication, but things are SLOWLY getting better! So hopefully that means you will start feeling better soon too!
