My posting has been scarce lately, but I promise things are slowly getting back to normal.
I've been getting a lot of rest the past two weeks, and haven't had my cell or my comp on. I really needed to get away for a bit.
To say my stress level had been high is an under-statement.
The week going up to my first official ultra-sound felt like a dream. All I could think about was if we had lost the baby. I felt like I was at peace with the whole thing, but in reality-I wasn't.
Walking into the doctor's office was terrifying. I was already feeling the morning sickness kicking in, and just didn't feel like being there at all.
They did my ultrasound first. I could tell the tech was nervous, and kept saying, "This may not answer our questions, so don't worry about it." Panic set in.
My mom was with me, and kept everything light until it was time.
The tech began the procedure, and before I knew it she was exclaiming, "There's the heartbeat!"
Everything I had been feeling just came out. I couldn't stop crying. Which in turn caused everyone else to start tearing up.
BEST. DAY. EVER.
I didn't care what in the heck happened the rest of the day. We were having our baby, and that's all that mattered.
After that, it was back to laying in bed for a week. Even on Christmas, I struggled staying awake and feeling super nauseous. Wasn't fun at all.
I did attempt to go out for my annual after Christmas shopping trip with a friend, but we stayed out until around 3pm-then I came home and passed out for the rest of the evening.
Although being completely drained of all energy, and being nervous to eat sucks-I welcome it all.
Because all this means that there's a little person growing inside, and what better thing to dwell on while staring at the ceiling when you feel like you're dying?
So that's what's been going on. Praise Jesus the hubs is off another week. He's been a HUGE help to me and the kids.
Things around the blog will be more back to normal after the New Year. So please stick around! I've got tons of goodies planned so don't forget about me!!
Thanks again for all the sweet messages and prayers. They've helped tremendously during this time!!
