Well, thought I'd let all my blog friends on why I've been sort of absent...it's winter (even in Florida) and I haven't been taking many pictures because JJ has been doing most things with his papa (going to the park, going for walks, PLAYING...EATING (especially)...I mean everything except the cuddles just about) So, why is that?
Well, I've been really, really sick. I've been nauseous and tired for weeks, yep, you guessed it! I'M PREGNANT! I need you to comment and gush about this, because it's been hard to remember amidst the sickness.
Just for a quick re-cap. I am about 8 weeks along and started getting sick between 4 and 5 weeks and really sick at 5 weeks! I was unable to hold anything down, even ice chips and popcicles were hard. I had my first ob appointment and she was worried about me losing too much weight (i'm sure dehydration too) so she prescribed a great anti-nausea medicine that has helped many of her patients. It used to be incredibly expensive, but now with a generic and only a $5 co-pay it is so great that I can have it! It has helped me keep things down, but like with JJ, I have NO APPETITE for food...there is very little that appeals to me and if something does I get sick of it and it doesn't after a couple of days...so, that's what's been going on!
I've been spending a lot of this beautiful Florida weather on my bed, with the door closed so that I can't smell things in the kitchen...It's been sad, BUT as I've thought much throughout this, it's for the best reason that I am sick! I know I will get better (with JJ was better 11-12 weeks, hopefully the same, YOU CAN PRAY!) and I think of dear friends and family currently battling cancer or other infirmities without knowing if they will get better. I'm trying to keep perspective and am so thankful that Jared's job is flexible and he can help so much!
So, that's me...don't forget to "gush" in comments to encourage me!
Crazy for Christ - t was around 9:00pm as I went into the grocery store. I saw a young man pass by and felt like maybe I should talk to him about the Lord, but instead I cont...
