~ Morning Sickness!

Okay, can I just say that I will never, ever again look down my nose at someone who says that they have morning sickness? I guess I've always thought that it was a convenient excuse for some women to use during their pregnancy for a little added attention. Well ladies, my heartfelt apologies. I never had morning sickness with Gabe, but I sure do with this one. Only it's all day sickness some days. I've been subsisting on carrots (the baby kind) and sprite, with a spare piece of bacon thrown in on my good days. When will this be over? Not soon enough for me. My poor husband and child have been eating whatever can be microwaved as I haven't been able to think about cooking. I especially can't stand the smell of any kind of meat cooking. BLAH! Enough of the pity party for now though.

I've spoken to the powers that be at my job and asked to be put on part-time starting in July. I'm planning on trying to work through October, but I'm not sure it will work out that way. We are trying to keep me working as long as I can, so that we are a little more financially stable when the baby actually gets here and I'm staying home full time. I'm so ready. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but I love Gabe and this baby more and I feel like God is letting me know not to worry about the money end of it, that because I'm being faithful to His calling, He will be faithful to our family.

Speaking of Gabe. Have I mentioned how smart he is? He is so talented. He has started singing to Mommy and Daddy at night and he reads to our dog. He has this little wooden book called "Daddy Loves Me" and he wants us to read it to him all the time. This gets a little tiring as you can imagine. So the other day, I asked him to go read it to our dog. He went over to her gate, sat down beside her, and opened up the book and started telling her all about it. Of course the only word that was recognizable was the word "daddy". But I guess since the book is about Daddy, that makes sense doesn't it? It's especially tough on me right now to leave him at the sitters every day, even though I know that he has fun; I'm just really hormonal and the next few months are going to just drag by.

My dear husband has been doing fairly well. I know that he worries about our finances a lot, so please be praying about that. We are doing everything we can right now to live off just his check, but it seems that when it rains, it pours, and we end up needing my check too, just to pay bills. Please be praying about that also.

Well, sorry that this one is short, I'm having that same car sick feeling again. I hate that, but at least it is a little reassurance that everything is normal. My next pre-natal visit is May 2, and we're anxious to hear the baby's heartbeat. I'm so ready to get past the stage of fearing a miscarriage. Well, I'll talk to you all next week. Happy eating!!!!!
