The Big News

Hi guys! Long time no blog, eh? Well, I am back to say hello and to document the big news.

We are pregnant! Our baby #2 is due April 2015. This is how Geddy feels about it:


So, he was a little indifferent about the matter but Chad and I are super excited.

Now, I am about to get all sorts of "real" here. Some pregnancy details that you may not want to hear about. So you have been warned.

I will say this though, I have been SOOOOOO ill. I was not at all like this with Geddy. I throw up all the time which is WEIRD for me because I have probably thrown up maybe 5 times in my ENTIRE life. I just don't vomit so this has been horrifying.

Can we also talk about the fact that every time I throw up, I pee my pants? Like full on, change my undies, pee. TMI? Definitely but this is real life folks.

I have also had like 2 UTIs which I have NEVER had before in my entire life. That's the worst.

I also want to sleep for like 12 hours a day.

And constipation. That is a real life thing everyone. Have you ever had to drink 100% Prune Juice just to give it a "nudge", as Chad likes to say. It's terrible. I have to plug my nose and drink it as fast as I can.

I have tried taking 2 different medications for the vomiting and nausea and they don't seem to help much at all. What is wrong with me?

Now, many of you must be thinking "how could she complain about such a wonderful gift?".

And I get that question. And I am so thrilled to be pregnant, I really want to be. But I will also confess that this has been really hard for me. And the amount of guilt I feel about not being fun or alert for Geddy is tremendous. The poor boy just wants to play and wrestle and has such vitality for life but right now, I can't match that energy.

Amazingly, he has incredible Grandparents on both sides and awesome friends who demand to help (and I mean that in a good way). Plus, a Sister in Iowa whole allows me to tell her all my woes and she is supportive and makes me laugh and overall feel better. Bless all of them.

Lastly, there is Chad. The guy is working full time and started class again this month and he has had to clean and play with Geddy and cook dinner while I lay moaning on the couch. He has been stalwart and loyal and the best companion or partner that I could have ever asked for. You're a good man, Chad de Lisle.

So yes, we feel so incredibly blessed for this wonderful gift to come into our lives. But it has been a time of growth for me. And I am not out of the sick "woods" yet but I am hanging on for dear life.

Happy Thursday!
