The time has come......


Kurtis and I have been talking about getting pregnant for more than a year now and while Kurtis was ready, I was not. I HATE being pregnant! I get SO sick and feel just plain awful for the first three or four months. So to say the least there was to be a lot of talking into from Kurtis and finally listening to that "still small voice" that I had been pushing out of my head for a while. I finally decided that I was ready to take on one more little monster and deal with all the sickness I would be feeling while trying to bring it into the world. (a mothers work is never done and sometimes never easy!) So yes......I am pregnant...about 10 weeks along and feeling...........AWFUL!! Thanks to my wonderful husband, being a doc and all, he was able to get me some really nice drugs that have saved me from throwing up more than 10 times a day! I still throw up, but not nearly as much! Now I just need a nose plug to prevent me from smelling pretty much anything! Hopefully I will feel better in a few weeks, but who knows! I am very thankful for having my family so close so that they can help me when I need it the most! Don't worry, I will survive.....I think! :)

WAHOOOO!!!! I am so excited!!! When is your due date? We are right at the same time frame!!! (I'm due Nov. 3). I so wish you were here - we could put all the kids together and lay down and be miserable in the other room!! You are going to fit right in on the ward baby bandwagon - you will make prego #4 of the ward :) (that means you HAVE to move back into the ward!!)
I so hope your sickness gets better quickly! We'll see you soon!

I'm so excited for you Jolene! Did you know that I am having a baby in May? I'm excited that you and Jen are due at the same time. How fun will that be. The mother's room will be crowded! Mrs. Plute asked about Caleb yesterday, and said to tell you "hi!"

Congrats! That is so exciting! I completely understand what you are going through. I am always so sick, and on meds the entire time, but this time around four months felt great. But now that I am almost done I am throwing up more then I did in the beginning! Yea for the joys of pregnancy!

Steph said...

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Oh, I mean for the pregnancy, not for the sicky yucky feelings. I'm so excited that you'll be moving back and we get to see this new little one. Congrats! This baby is so lucky that it will get to join your family. :)

No way - I haven't checked your blog in a while and here I am finding out your pregnant! Congrats So sorry you are so sick. If you get that sick I do think drugs are the only thing that help. Also, cola or gingerale? I am sorry. Let me know if I can do anything for you!
