I must apologize for my absents. I’m sure you will forgive me once you hear the exciting news that I have to share.
I am pregnant! We are going to be family of 4!
The first 3 months are very taxing and all you really want to do is sleep. Mmm sleep. Well I’ve been trying to catch zzz’s here and there, though my husband is currently sailing. It’s just Scarlett, baby and I and my goodness. Second pregnancy isn’t as restful as the first.
I am only 12 weeks along but it’s been difficult. I don’t just mean running around after Scarlett and working full time. The morning sickness has consumed my life.
Medications weren’t working. I was throwing up all day long. Then one day (while my husband was away and Scarlett was luckily at her grandparents’ house), my doctor sent me to the hospital for dehydration. I couldn’t even keep water down. I was scared. My doctor was very calm and good with me. She laid out all the option that I had. All I kept thinking was how I wish my husband was here to hold my hand.
But I got through the day. I sat in the ER with an IV (who I called Frosty) for 4.5 hours. My goodness, what a busy ER and entertaining place.
My pregnancy hasn’t been the best, but I’m hoping that my second trimester turns around and soon. It didn’t with my first, but it I wasn’t this sick. Positive thoughts and my family will get me through this because really I don’t have much of a choice.
Despite being sick for 3 months, I am extremely happy about baby. I can’t wait to meet him or her. November 4th can’t come fast enough.
