When I last left you we were seated in the airplane ready for take off…..

Liam looked out the window the whole time….until the sun was shining so brightly that we were blinded! Take off was uneventful and I kept offering Liam juice to pop his ears but he didn’t want any. I had forgotten how loud it is inside the plane because when I set up the laptop so Liam could watch a DVD he couldn’t even hear it and he’s too little for earphones. So that didn’t last very long.

I must plug my Crocs messenger bag here (see PTR for details). What a great carry-on bag! It fits so nicely under the seat in front of you on the plane. It worked really well for us the whole trip and I’m thinking of getting a second one to use as a diaper bag for the new baby.

DH who suffers from air/motion sickness was doing really well this flight. Basically he sits quietly the whole flight and doesn’t eat or drink (he does keep a bottle of water handy). A few years ago I found these hard ginger candies (the brand is GIN-GIN) at the health food store and those work really well with motion sickness. This was a 5 ginger candy flight!

Liam fell asleep and I got to have my bagel and cream cheese that I had brought from home for breakfast. The second half of the flight isn’t that clear to me. I know that Liam had some juice and fishy crackers for breakfast (refusing the applesauce that we had gotten patted down for!) Then at some point I began to not feel well…dizzy-like. I asked DH if I looked pale… I think he replied “white as a ghost”, to which I replied “I feel faint.” Now I should tell you that I’m no stranger to fainting. I’ve fainted visiting people in the hospital, in my warehouse where I worked for NASCAR races, in the jury box of a trial I was a juror for. Stress is the common link to all those faintings. I started to do my calming breathing….unfortunately I couldn’t recline. DH tells me that I was out cold for a few seconds and then came back around. After a few more minutes I was feeling much better and sipped on DH’s water. Now while this was going on my loving DH was holding my hand. Or so I thought! The sneaky little devil was taking my pulse the whole time! Amazingly Liam just sat quietly the whole time this was going on with me.

Side note: I did tell my Dr. about this and he was non-pulsed about the whole thing….happens all the time he says with pregnant women. Really? Never heard that one before.

The rest of the flight was uneventful, and we landed 20 minutes ahead of schedule. We were the last to exit the plane….it was so nice not to be in a rush to get off the plane with all those pushy people, half on their cel phones.

Once off the plane we took turns taking a potty break and I changed Liam into a pair of shorts. By the time we got down to luggage claim our bags were just coming out. Great timing! We got a luggage cart ($3 cash) and made our way downstairs to get our rental car. I had forgotten that you had to go outside and across the way to pick up the car. We found the National Emerald Aisle easy enough after we asked for directions. I was surprised at how small the section was. I was expecting rows and rows of cars….not so much. There were no SUVs or mini vans….only full size cars. There was one Volvo but the trunk was way too small for all our stuff. We ended up with a red Chevy Impala.
Here's your only picture for this update:



We were very happy with using National Rental Car. Emerald Aisle is super easy to use and I recommend it, plus we got a full size car for the price of a mid-size.

Before we headed out we took a couple minutes to decide that we would go check in at the resort first then get lunch followed by grocery shopping. We left the airport by 11am.

Next up: Check in at CBR. Would I get the room type that I requested?

I was really worried about the fainting with your DH's motion sickness. How awesome that he was having such a good flight that he could comfort you....ahem take your pulse.

Awww Liam sounded like a trooper on the plane, that is great!! I am sorry to hear about your fainting issues, that has to be scary. I liked how your husband was sneaky enough to keep an eye on your pulse, good for him. I hope you got the room you wanted.

Great update. Sorry to hear though about your fainting spell and DH's motion sickness. Sounds like Liam was a trooper the flight though!

This is going to come out wrong.

I'm so glad you fainted sitting down!

What I mean is, I'm glad you weren't standing up, or didn't fall or anything, not that fainting in and of itself isn't worrisome enough, but I was worried it was much, much worse! Glad it wasn't!

Sounds like, other than the fainting, you all did okay. Can't wait to find out what happens at CBR.

Sorry to disappoint you!

Sneaky that one is! When I was in labor with Liam, DH would throw off the counts (to 10) so I would push longer....I'm on to him!

Yes in the end Liam had the least problem with flying then his parents!

It actually would have been better if I was standing up with I started to feel faint because I would have sat/laid down where ever I was to get my head lower. Lucky for me I know the signs so I've always been able to get myself at least sitting down.

Mini Addition Update

Baby Addition: Baby is now 17 weeks and is the size of a Turnip! About 5 oz in weight and 5 inches in length. My morning sickness is getting less and less, but I'm always tired!

House Addition: Everything is ready for the foundation walls to be formed/poured on Monday and Tuesday. Rain is in the forecast so we'll have to wait and see if it happens on time.

I read your update yesterday, but I guess I got distracted and never commented. So scary to faint on the plane! I am so glad that you were okay!

The car is very cute -- I have a hunch that was photographed at CBR!

I was one of those women who fainted, I think 3 times, when I was pregnant. Each time was at work. It was only in the 1st trimester and early 2nd. I never got sick but I took the passing out as my form of morning sickness.

Your son Liam is a doll and I can't wait to here more
