The sermon also struck a cord with me because the day before I had found out that Adam, Noah and I are expecting an addition to our family in August! We are thrilled and a little nervous. The potential this little one has is overwhelming. I look forward to experiencing the joy and miracle of pregnancy without the shock value Noah brought and hopefully without the sickness. I tear up every time I think about Noah and this baby playing together and running around the house. I want the bond between them to be strong.
Today we went to the doctor and so far everything looks fine. We will have an ultrasound Monday. I look forward to seeing a sweet little heartbeat and be more assured that things are okay. As far as the pre eclampsia/ Toxemia she said it was pretty certain I would have it again but probably not as serious. Hopefully the third trimester being in the summer should help.
I have been a little bit sick. Not an all day nauseous can't keep food down kind of sick but little pockets of sickness usually brought on by smells. I have been super tired but no more than the average working mother of a two year old. Mostly I am feeling this unquenchable urge to organize my whole house top to bottom. For example... Sunday after getting back from Birmingham ... I brought all of Noah's toys from all over the house and sorted them, organized, added the Christmas toys, and put them away. Yesterday I took down Christmas, washed all the sheets and duvet cover, did three loads of laundry, uploaded Christmas pictures, and unpacked us all.
I have vowed not to eat any Swiss Cake Rolls esp. a whole box at a time! But a grilled cheese sandwhich sounds pretty good. My neighbor has promised me after the first of the year to walk with me everyday. And water and prenatal vitamins are getting along with my stomach this time. So I am really looking forward to and praying for a healthy pregnancy!
