Happy New Year!!!!!

Christmas pictures are up at Flickr!!!
Christmas was good and wonderfully hectic - Everybody has left to go home, boo-hoo - I think Grandma and Aunt Beth will be glad to be home, they did a lot for me while they were here. Friday night as if morning sickness wasn't enough fun I got a killer migraine which aggravated everything - I threw up non stop during the night and despite pills and medicine in other unpleasant avenues I ended up on IV fluids in the hospital on Saturday. Of all the hospital visits for morning sickness, well I should correct myself - I have the official diagnosis of Hyperemesis Gravidarium - this was a nice hospital, and very nice nurses until two of them asked if this was my first baby and I said no my fourth - and they literally looked at me like I was a retarded alien like some combination of sympathy and revulsion. One even said "you know this gets worse every time" - "yes I know but the babies just get cuter and cuter!!" Today we saw the doctor and she didn't really know what to say - I only lost two more pounds, which she was very happy about - I just rolled my eyes. So she kind of just scratched her head about the pump - I said if it will get rid of the nausea I want it. but since there is no guarantee I'll just go back to my couch at home. Then she said in a gratingly nice way - I don't think anything will take your nausea away. Insert my fair lady voice here: loverly. OK this has been enough typing, the couch is calling. The best news today was we got to see our little gummy bear... introducing the first glimpse at Baby O

When hermit crabs attack...

Benjamin and Ella got hermit crabs the other day. Benjamin named his Firecracker due to his black shell with starburst pattern painted on it. Ella named hers Princess Sparkles since she has a pink shell with sparkles all over it. Well, the 'Princess' part seems to be a misnomer...

Same 'ol stuff, different pregnancy...

Keeping cool Pretty pitiful huh? I am sooo sick. Can't even brush my hair it makes me nauseous, in fact everything makes me nauseous. Went to the doctor today and she is very concerned about my weight loss - I actually don't mind that part at all! She is trying another medicine and wants to see me in two weeks, if I have lost any more weight I will get a pump for continuous anti-nausea medicine. Everything is a blur right now. The kids are getting very excited about Christmas. I am bummed to be sick at Christmas time but glad my family is here, they doing everything for me - and as you can see from the picture that makes them very tired...

Are we pathetic or what...
Merry Christmas from the family!!!!!!!

So guys I am pretty sick - but my mommy and Aunt Beth are here. Apologies in advance that things won't be the same this year - that is if I usually send you a package, it will most definitely be late, and there won't be an Oyakawa Christmas card - I am not up to much but moaning on the sofa and trying to keep food down. Kyle is a good man and picking up much more than his slack - I love my hubby!!

Boo - hoo

ROUND 10 — Hatton stays aggressive, chases Mayweather, who doesn't even look winded. Out of nowhere, Mayweather floors Hatton one minute into the right with a big left hook. Hatton gets up easily, but Mayweather staggers Hatton with a left, then sends him stumbling and sprawling flat on his back in a neutral corner. Cortez ends the fight over a prone Hatton, and Mayweather leaps on the ropes.
Mayweather wins, KO 10.
I am sad.
I am also sad because Morning sickness has raised its very ugly head. I have a really good doctor who has already put me on Zofran, which calmed the relentless puking that started friday - but I am still nauseos 100% of the time. sigh..........but My mom and Aunt Beth will be here this week, so I am very excited!!!

Little known fact about Janie...

I like boxing!!! - It started with that cheezy show Contender. I see the sheer absurdity of it, and as an OT I can only imagine the damage that is being done to the boxers brains and bodies. But its morbidly entertaining and a little easier to understand than football - its just "get in there and beat that guy up"
So right now I am trying to convince Kyle into paying the 55 bucks so I can see the Mayweather VS. Hatton fight - but alas its too close to christmas and not worth spending money on I know... But for the record my money is on Hatton!

Cooking and Morning Sickness

So far I am actually doing pretty well - Maiya and I left the house today and I spent some time with Sarah and she helped school me on the new blogger. Isn't she awesome? But I have slowly left the kitchen, First no doing dishes, now no cooking, and soon I think even the microwave will gross me out. So long story short, Kyle is out of town and the kids haven't had a vegetable in two days, yet there isn't quite enough guilt there to get me to cook tonight....

Our trip

It was a good weekend, I started to feel icky but with lots of trips for random morning sickness remedies from my loving man, we had a great time!
The Beach boys!! I really enjoyed them, I knew more of the songs than Kyle did and there were so many people there was hardly room to dance but it was still GREAT.

Kyle and his beautiful bosses - what a lucky guy huh? should I be worried?

The next morning (and yes the clock does say 10:45) - thanks again Meg for watching the kids and sorry Maiya broke your phone!
Kyle: "Janie wake up we have to check out!"
Before going to the airport Kyle drove me over to see the headquarter offices of his company. For all six years he has worked there he has always been at satellite offices. Man is that place huge - its like a small campus. Anyway there was the cutest flock of Canadian geese taking a break.
