Finally, back to life...

Oh my GOSH! It is absolutely crazy to me how something so tiny inside of me can make me as SICK as I have been for the past three weeks! I am finally able to wake up in the morning, get out of bed, get ready and eat something blan with out regurgitating everything everywhere! I can't speak too soon though, as I still battle sickness in the early morning and late evening but, I will take that over the all day misery any day! Wyatt would leave for work and HOURS later come home to his pregnant wife in the same PJs from the night before, laying in the same spot on the couch as when he left...if he was lucky, my hair would have been washed! Who knew this new little resident would take so much out of me!?!

I used to joke with Wyatt and say that we were destined for 6+ kids...well...I have definitely changed my tune! If pregnancy greets me with this every time, I can handle one...maybe two. Wyatt, it looks like you win this one! :)

As far as"growth" goes, I am still wearing my normal/everyday clothes. I am SO ready for summer in Texas so I can switch to sundresses and skirts however, with this crazy winter in the middle of global warming (what a joke) I am forced to stick it out and layer up...

At my last Dr visit (8 weeks, 2 days) I got into trouble for gaining four pounds...here is my explanation and reason...for whatever it is worth...
I was so sick for THREE WEEKS! Literally lived off of crackers and toast and if I was lucky, I tolerated some jelly on the toast! Finally, when I was able to eat without feeling completely miserable, everything sounded so good! I was eating a healthy variety of foods but apparently way too many calories!! HA! So, I get on the scale and the nurse pushes the thing to a whopping ... a lady never tells ;)

Anyway, daddy Wyatt, who is at my side every second at the doctor looks at me with the look of "its okay, you can gain weight in pregnancy" and I know that I am fine. I think that I overanalyze doing this whole thing "right". Is there a "right"?!? I guess we will see...

I am now 9 weeks, 5 days...every Sunday turns the "weeks" which makes it so much easier for my pregnant brain to remember; especially since I cannot even seem to get an educated sentance out of my mouth lately...Wyatt's usual response is , "What, baby? Try that again!?" LOL...I am so blessed by my wonderful and nurturing husband. He is going to be quite the father. We already know he is quite the husband ;)

I have been keeping a pregnancy journal through all my sickness...Thank You, Ashley McCoy for the wonderful gift! :) I will try and update with pics and more details as my energy level allows...it seems so easy but when brushing your teeth is a chore...imagine finding energy to tell a story!

Love and blessings to all our friends and family!

...prayers to the Greer family, and all our love and support!
