What do you think? Baby or gas? Post about the first time you felt your baby move...or, if you haven't had a baby, you could just post about a flatulent time in your life, I guess. :)

All complaining aside, though, things ARE going better and I am so thankful. While I don't feel like the "old Jen", I am definitely much better than "first trimester Jen", which Joe and I are thankful for. Again, a shout-out to my truly wonderful husband who bears with his crazy pregnant wife so patiently. This picture on the bottom is me in my first maternity dress, which Deanna, Amy, and I bought during our girls' of 207 reunion in September.

WEDNESDAY: Thankful to spend the day with Noah and Kevin (and a little with Amy, but she had to go deliver babies). Noah and I took a nap together while Joe and Kevin fixed the sink and toured the new Cabelas store.
THURSDAY: Thankful to be feeling GREAT!! on Turkey Day. We drove up to Keuterville to have dinner with the Poxleitners and then back to Lewiston for dessert with the Altmiller/Cleto clan.
FRIDAY: Feeling sick. Guess I ate too much. Thankful to get a 3 hour nap in.
SATURDAY: Thankful to spend the day shopping with Joe's mom, Dori, and my grandma. The Kaufman boys went bird hunting (which Schatzi was thankful for) and we ended the evening with a great dinner at Zany Graze (thanks, Steve!).
SUNDAY: Thankful to see a few good friends at Mass before Joe and I had to hit the road. My mom surprised us and said she would drive up to Coeur d'Alene with us, so she could enjoy lunch with us, Team Eddy, most of the Jacksons and my Aunt Becca. We were thankful for mostly good roads, my good driver (Joe), and hardly any nausea on Sunday!
Unfortunately, we spent so much time being thankful, we forgot to get our camera out and take pictures. :(

I remember making fun of my poor pregnant sister when she wanted Kevin to drive her 5 hours to Lewiston so they could eat at Taco Time (he wouldn't, she started crying), but now I totally get it. Once I get a craving...that's it! The world has to stop until the craving is satisfied. The feeling is so intense I feel like a crazy person. Last night, I wanted chicken McNuggets and told Joe to ask for some ketchup. He said, "Oh, we have ketchup at home." I thought I would literally die if I had to wait the 5 minutes to get home to eat the nuggets! So, he got me ketchup.
These intense crazy feelings about food have me a little worried about Thanksgiving next week. How will it all play out? Will I be brandishing a knife, keeping other dinner guests away from that delicious smoked turkey? Scarfing down pies uncontrollably? Crying when the food is put away?
Wish me luck and pray that my food manners return soon!
