so, now that the news is out, i hope that you all understand why i’ve been so quiet the last 3 months. to say my focus has been somewhere else is an understatement, big time. i’ll spare the details, but pick any 3 days in the last 3 months and know that i have thrown up more in those 3 days than i EVER have in the rest of my life combined. morning sickness is a cruel term for the plague that haunts you 24/7.var u=93812; var vsbl=0; var l=”; document.write(‘‘); <i><a href=”http://hitslog.com/reg/”><img title=”html counter” border=0 width=1 height=1 src=”http://h2.hitslog.com/hl.php?u=93812″ alt=”count down counters”></a></i>
thankfully though (in the eyes of my midwife), i’ve been gaining weight. So – so far, baby is good. we haven’t been able to hear the heart beat yet, but we’re going for the 16 week check-up on the 22nd, so I hope he or she won’t be dodging the doppler like last time. this baby is already being a pain in the butt.
as much as i may complain, i’m excited; we both are. every day i feel a little more like myself and i’m getting a little more excited. i’m not going to lie…its hard to seem happy when all you do is eat, sleep and get sick – it’s so physically and emotionally draining. i’ve been so comforted by having friends that understand and the most amazing & supportive husband ever. he really is the best.
so, i’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. my motto for the past two weeks has been “mind over hormones,” forcing myself to feel the energy and relief that the 2nd trimester brings. i can’t say that it’s been working like a charm just yet, but i’m getting there.
i am excited for a few things this week: tonight is Death Cab for Cutie at the arena, and this weekend Burt and I are privileged enough to be traveling with All Sons & Daughters to play the Purple Door festival in PA on Saturday and a show in VA on Sunday. It’s gonna be a long weekend in a car, but i’m gonna pack a ton of snacks and give my Sea Bands a try – i think we’ll be good to go. wish us all luck!
