Week 8
~ A Little Bit of Light!

Do I see just a little bit of light? Could it possibly be? I am now more than 1/2 way through the first trimester and depending on the day I actually feel a few hours of 'normal'! I don't know how it's possible to feel not so bad at one moment and insanely nauseous the next. I don't get sick, I just FEEL sick. All the time. Because we are not yet telling our family and friends (aside from my twin sister and my husband's oldest sister who is close with him), I don't ask for much help - it's challenging to not want to lean on someone else when I just want to be left alone to sleep for the next few weeks. Laugh!

When he's home, my husband is being pretty wonderful though. It seems like three other prep runs have taught him a few things because he is picking up a lot of the slack without complaining much this time! Good man. Of course that means a lot of stuff doesn't get covered but it's just going to have to fly for the moment. The boys have been pretty flexible and understanding for the most part even though they don't know why I don't feel good sometimes.

So with limited inspiration and low energy, I feel pretty quiet in my spirit and heart, it seems with each passing week I feel a little more out of my early-pregnancy-shell though. I do have to say that I am looking forward to not going through the first trimester again if all goes well! Thanks for joining me at the start of my journey!

With love . . .
