Memories Monday

You see this nasty woman...well in the past few weeks I feel like I might be her close relative. No I don't look like her but my attitude has been pretty stinky! It's amazing what nausea will do to you. I haven't lost it with the kids, but often times I feel like I'm on a very tight wire! Sending this child or that child here or there, trying just to keep them occupied, so I don't end up looking like this...

One day this past week the boys were so loud I thought, about an activity that would take them for a spin :O In the end I saw the danger and backed out :)

On another day I thought, what about a cage...just for a little while ;)

In the end I know that the boys aren't acting any differently than they always do, it's ME! Most days I'm just trying to keep my head up and my meals down. I'm thankful for all my big kids and Arthur trying to look over me and holding everything together during this time.

I'm praying in the days to come I'll feel like the mom, I know I am. Again, thankful for the sickness, and as all things do.... it to shall pass :) Praising the Lord for the new life growing within me!

(The first 3 Memories Monday pictures are from our Disney trip Nov. 2008, and the picture of Wesley and myself is from Christmas)

I can relate with you! I am pregnant and the never-ending nausea can take a tole on you! I have repented to my kids a lot and to God for dishonoring Him! Not to mention my husband who puts up with meals I throw together in seconds...cereal at times! He never complains! What a great husband!

I only have 2 weeks and 2 days left...I have to have a c-section. I will pray for you and your family in this tough time. Nausea is a good doing good...and research shows ladies who are sick during their whole pregnancy have a less chance of getting breast cancer! I should never get it if this is the case!!! Lord-willing, that is.

I'll be praying for you and your family!

P.S. I am expected to have a child with Down's Syndrome. I will go tomorrow for another U/S to see if the markers are still there.

I am so sorry about the morning sickness! I had it really bad with all of my pregnancies, and it really does wear you out day after day after day after day. I don't think anyone can appreciate how awful it is unless they've been there.

I don't know your feelings on medication, but my doctor prescribed Zofran for me and it was a lifesaver, especially when I had other children to care for.

Hang in there!!

I was sick the 1st trimester with Amanda but had the morning, noon and night sickness with Daniel.

I hope you are right and this too shall pass. Love you! T

I have kept all my meals down for about the last 3 days! :) My favorite quote will now be "just trying to keep my head up and my meals down" Priceless!! I pray it is over soon friend-can't wait to know who he/she is! I too enjoyed the pics with your story :) You were much more creative than I was in the throws of morning sickness! :)

Laura....somehow I missed your announcement! I blame it on the eye stuff I have been going through. I read the first part of your post where you announced it and must have gotten interrupted.
I am so excited for you. I will be getting caught up on blog reading soon, we were gone for the long weekend with no internet access so I'm behind on everything!
