I Made It

Wow!  It has been such a long journey since I last updated.  My fourth pregnancy has been my hardest one so far.  The nauseousness started about the 3rd week in February, and it has finally started to die down last week.  It was the hardest nine weeks my body has ever experienced.

TJ is my hero.  He did EVERYTHING.  I won't name it all, because it would take too long.  I don't know if any of you out there have experienced what I went through, but if you have, you know that you just can't function.  If you stand up, you throw up.  I would on average throw up between 2-3 times a day.  Let's keep in mind that with my first three pregnancies, I didn't throw up that much the whole time.  I was one of those women who were like "I'm so lucky, I never get sick!"  I kind of hate my old self, and want to tell all those women out there that it's not fair!

The point of this post is that I made it.  I wake up in the morning and I'm not sick.  I'm so thankful each day that I can play with my boys, and feel like a Mom again.  I love them!  Hayden has been such a joy lately.  His favorite thing to say is "I had it first!"  He loves his Dad, and always wants to be where his brothers are.  He just wants to be one of the boys.  It's adorable. 

Disneyland pictures are still sitting on my computer, and I will finally post some of them soon!  It was a hard trip being sick the whole time.  I didn't get to do a lot of the things I wanted to because of it.  The boys still had a wonderful time.

My pregnancy is going great.  The baby is measuring right on schedule.  I am 14 weeks today.  We will be finding out what we are having around 20 weeks.  I don't have any feelings either way, and would love a boy or a girl.  I am in love with boys though!   I will keep you posted!
