These past few weeks have been HARD! I’ve tried not to leave you, my readers, hanging. But I’m sure that you’ve noticed that my low entry giveaways haven’t always posted on time. That Kate has been doing most of the bigger posts.
I wish I could say that I’ve been on vacation in some exotic or far off location. Well, the real reason I’ve been a little slow is a great reason, really. It’s just not all that pleasant for me at the moment.
If you’re a mom you’ve probably guessed the reason already. You’ve likely been there.
A baby’s in there, that is. I’m currently 9 1/2 weeks pregnant, and thanks to a cocktail of unisom, b6, and ginger, I can at least function most days. I have good days where I can get a few things done during the day. And then I have bad days where I basically lie on the couch most of the day. My best times are the morning hours before 11am (odd since it’s called “morning sickness”), and then I get progressively worse as the day wears on. By night (my main blogging time), it is unbearable to sit at the computer.
Big Brother at just 5 years old has become my big helper. He takes care of his little brother when they get up in the morning so I can sleep, will get me crackers when I just can’t bear to stand up and get them myself, and has become very good at cleaning up his and his brother’s toys when I ask him to. Both boys have already decided that I’m having a girl. Little Brother talks about “when I have my baby sister”.
I look forward to every weekend when I can say I have another week down and 1 less week of morning sickness to go. I have a crazy few weeks coming up with lots of traveling so wish me luck!
Here is to pregnancy and all it’s joys!
