Oh my. I can't even begin to describe the way I have been feeling because I might lose it (again). I have been nauseous on and off for about two weeks but it was tolerable. Yesterday morning I woke up with this terrible feeling in my stomach. It was like when you wake up starving and all you want to do is eat to ease the feeling. I thought that's what I was having so I cooked up 2 eggs and made a yummy egg sandwich and by the time it was all ready I couldn't even look at it. So, I cooked up some oatmeal and ate it quick. Chris was the lucky receiver of the egg sandwich. I hurried and got ready for church and then got back in bed. Somehow made it to church and at the end of the service my husband so kindly pointed out that I had put my shirt on inside out. Yes, it was that kind of day. Once we got home I got in my sweats and spent the rest of the day in bed. Chris was waiting on me like a sweetheart and when we came to see what I wanted for lunch i said "nothing!" I couldn't bare to think about food. I racked my mind and decided that egg salad sounded good so I told him to make it fast while it still sounded good. My sweet mom came up last night and rescued us. She made Chris a yummy Italian dinner while I laid in bed and covered my head to I couldn't smell the pasta cooking. She went to the store and bought me anything and everything under the sun that might sound good to me. So sweet. She understands what I am going through and has sympathy. Thank God! So she understood when she saw me under the sheets with my ears plugged because I can't stand to watch commercials that talk about and show food. There are WAY too many! You never realize it until you want to throw up at each one. I'm going to start counting how many times I have to hide and plug my ears a day, just to keep me entertained. Today was just as lovely, I spent the morning getting to know my toilet really well. Thank God I'm a clean freak. Right after I got sick, sweet little Riley then threw up. Awesome. To be honest, I didn't think I was going to get morning sickness. I get all the weird things so I should have known. Speaking of weird things, I have an ovarian cyst on the right side. Talk about painful. I have been going crazy the past couple months and they finally figured it out through my ultrasound. I don't want this rambling blog to come across as complaining because in all honesty I am thankful that I feel and look like crap. It means the babe is growing and that's all that matters. I went in for more blood today...hopefully for the last time! That's all for now...I need to go and search the fridge for something that sounds good. PS. just FYI, please don't mention Mexican food to me for the next couple months. I have a hard time even typing it. Not my friend. Ok, goodnight world. Please keep praying for us!
Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free. I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is. Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok.
