Not only did I move,,,,,

But on move day was our 10 week ultrasound. The baby looked and measured perfect. I even saw little feet kicking and hands waving. The sad part is that I was not allowed to photo or video the ultrasound. IP were understandably disappointed.

I am still very sick and struggling so much with not being depressed. About everything. Moving while I feel like this has by far been one of the toughest experiences of my life. Now, I am in my house with boxes everywhere and no energy to do anything about it.

Teaching my classes has been very tough and I'm not always able to pull it off. I am really blessed to have a circle of teachers who are supporting me. I am 11 weeks today and look forward to providing a positive report on next entry!

I'm moving!!!!.............

So, not only am I busy feeling sick, but 10 days before the end of the month, I decided to move back into my house, as it was being used as a rental and the tenants had to move out. SO, I have had to pack and be moving while spitting constantly (sorry for the details) and feeling nauseous. I am 10 weeks and one day! Count down to 12 weeks is ON. I figure by the time that I am settled and comfortable in my house, I will start feeling better.

Interestingly, move day is on Wednesday, which is when my ultrasound is. I will post the video........until then, pack, pack, pack.........

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I wanted to share something of pride on Mother's Day. Go to my son's blog to read a letter from him.

I am so thankful

First of all, I am thankful that I have four amazing children that were born in my own home, into my own arms. Nothing will ever top that!

Second of all, I am thankful that I finally do not feel so ill that I didn't want to wake up in the mornings! I had to begin taking Zofran and higher levels of B6. It's working although I don't feel great. It is manageable. One of the most unpleasant symptoms of pregnancy for me is excessive salivation, which means that I must spit constantly. YUCK! However, I have talked to several women recently who share their stories of sickness for the WHOLE pregnancy! I have never had that and am thankful that it is usually gone at the end of the first trimester.

This week we are 8 weeks and have the first OB appt on Wednesday, along with another ultrasound and blood draw. I am hoping that I can begin easing up on the hormones soon. I really don't mind giving myself shots, but the Progesterone pill makes me feel kind of yucky.

My lack of yoga over the last week certainly doesn't help me to feel well and I look forward to resuming my teaching this week.

Vitamin B, PLEASE rescue me!.........

I am remembering what nature makes us forget and that is how bad the first trimester is. It is a constant effort to work on my attitude. Prayer is continuous. I'm thinking a beach retreat for two months would be ideal.
