I'd like to be able to write and say that I feel all better. But I am not there yet. I am still losing weight and getting sick 2-3 times a day. I am on 3 new medicines, so hopefully it will help. My OB says he will wean me off my medicines in 3 weeks. So here is to hoping this does end in three weeks or sooner. And if not, that I have the strength and peace to deal with this for 2 more trimesters. Again, I am trying hard to stay positive. There is just so much to be happy and grateful about!
Now that my family and friends do know I am pregnant, I have more help and prayer support, which is nice. Their happiness and love mean so much to me, and greatly outweighs the thoughtlessness. Its just one of those silly conundrums when people are thoughtless and just ignore the fact you're pregnant and say nothing (even when they are close to you, know you're pregnant, sick, and struggling). Oh well I guess it would be easier to just ignore them if they weren't also believers, but then again we are all pretty messy. Truly, in the end, Craig and I couldn't care less what others think! This is our new sweet baby! Goodness gracious we are so blessed.
Despite all of this, we did have a great week in co-op and a nice trip to our city's Fall Fest! I swear each year I enjoy it more. And each year I swear I will go back the next day without my kids to look at the crafts solo :)
Bonne Nuit dear friends!
