compelled to write

I feel compelled to write something today...

No, I didn't drop off the face of the earth ;-)  I've just been busy and tired.   Busy with work and slowly trying to clean up things around the house, and so this makes me pretty tired.

Nope, the nausea hasn't left me, but I'm not vomiting as much anymore.  I've just resigned myself to the fact that this pregnancy is going to be much more difficult than being pregnant with Beth was.  I'm going to be more sick, but - on the bright side - I'm not gaining as much weight as I did with her either! 

I'm trying to lower my expectations for myself.  I'm just not going to be able to keep my house as clean or get as much done around work as I have previously been able to - even when I was pregnant with Beth.  Taking things slowly and one day at a time.

I have a doctor's appointment Wednesday - 16 week check up, this time with the doctor for sure! LOL  Then on March 16th is when we find out if we have a boy or girl in my tummy. 

Gotta run now - it's nap time!  for me AND Beth ;-)


  1. Stopping by to say happy valentines day :) glad you're doing ok. Just keep in mind where our strength comes from!

  2. I'm so glad to know you all are doing okay. I am thinking about you and wishing you well. Can't wait to hear about boy or girl!

  3. I am so thrilled to hear from you. I was beginning to worry about you. Glad you aren't quite as sick, could be a boy since you are doing so differently with this rainbow. Can't wait to hear pink or blue. You take care and thank you for the kind words. Hugs :)
