first weeks

Shortly after my positive hpt, we told our family.  I know that it was a little premature, but we were excited as this was the only positive that we had ever seen and we wanted to share it with the world.  However, we knew that was not a good idea.  So we told our family.

After that happened, the questions started to pour in a bit.  "How are you feeling?", "You feeling like you have morning sickness?", "Are you going to the bathroom a lot?", "Have any headaches?", and "How's it going?"...

Well, to answer all of those questions.  I'm feeling fine.

I haven't been sick.  I can eat anything that I would normally eat, except for the things that I learned, I'm not supposed to eat and other than that, I'm peeing a lot.  I can ever take the horse pill vitamins that they are giving to me to take, with ease.

This is just about week 4.  We'll see how week 5, 6, 7 & 8 go...

More to come...

Sending good thoughts your way!!! For me, the first couple of weeks were full of anxiety and excitedness and the nausea didn't arrive until 6 1/2 weeks. Hopefully it doesn't ever hit you or it's as mild as it was for me!

So excited for you!

just an fyi in case.... if in the future weeks you feel nauseated, buy some b-natal lozenges from amazon. There is studies out there that say B-vitamins help w/ nausea. Worked well for me on this third baby (least amt of morning sickness than w/ other kids).

Best wishes!

I didn't feel sick until week 6- from what I've heard that is pretty common. :)

I am soooo happy for you and your family Jill! Fingers crossed for you that you keep on feeling great, I couldn't imagine dealing with morning sickness everyday and was SOOO thankful to skip that whole symptom.

Any guesses on whether you are team pink or blue?

So very happy for you!

I'm so glad that you're taking this all in stride! To reaffirm pp's morning sickness generally doesn't strike until the 6-8 week mark. I hope it passes you by!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
