Sprout's Route | Week 6

[written 10.11.10 - week 6]

I told my husband yesterday that I can already tell that this pregnancy is different from the last and there are a couple of reasons why...

First, I'm getting these headaches all the time.  They are painful but if not medicated, they just last forever.  I'm able to take tylenol and that soothes the pain, but if it gets beyond that, I'm supposed to go to the dr.  I haven't gotten to that point yet, but I hope they start to trickle off because I'm getting a little tired of them.

The other thing is that whenever I think about this pregnancy, I for some reason, always think that we're having multiples.  I know that it's crazy talk, but you just never know and that's just the feeling that I have.  I realize that in just about 9 days I'll know for sure, but for now, it's fun to think about what life would be like.  Honestly though, one healthy baby is all we really want and if we get more than that, we'll be jumping for joy!

Lastly, I'm completely experiencing the "going to feel like you haven't slept in weeks" feeling.  At one point last weekend, I thought I was just going to fall asleep in the middle of a volleyball tournament.  Now granted, it was about 9 hours of volleyball and in the 2nd game, we fell the losers bracket... BUT we played really hard and kicked a lot of teams butts.  I was worn out but so was everyone else.  I was not alone, but literally needed a nap about 1/2 way through.  I didn't feel this last time.  Last time, I wasn't tired like this.  I was tired, but I think it was just normal tired things.  Getting home late, waking up too early, being interrupted in the night with the animals, etc...

We'll see if the mulitple thing is true here in the next few days.  I'm excited to see what's going on since I haven't had the luxury of seeing anything yet.  I can't believe I still haven't said anything to anyone about this yet.  I'm doing really good at keeping this to myself, but I think that is where my blog comes into play again.  I can document these things and just keep them for the right time to share with the world.  It's always a great place for a release, even if it isn't posted right away.

OH yeah and this was the weekend (10.9.10) that we played 9 games of volleyball in a tournament and came in 2nd place, again.  What a week!  Kind of a fun note to mention in this pregnancy!

More to come...

It's funny - until IF, it never occurred to me that multiples are a pretty good possibility if we end up doing IUI or IVF. I think it'd be crazy and overwhelming and exciting, all at the same time. :)
(I adore reading these and I'm so excited for you...)

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 …
