Dreaming of Wal-Mart

If my last post gave the impression that "life with ME as a mommy is always a bowl of cherries"....just ask my 5 year old! I feel really sorry for the princesses lately. All I've felt up to doing is laying around...for weeks! At first, I thought I'd just forgotten how much energy it takes to grow a baby. Not so, this pregnancy is so different from my others. I've been sick from the first week...and ME...a woman who bakes sweets all the time and would live on brownies...got sick off a piece of chocolate the other day! I know the heat doesn't help anything. The last few days it's been 90 in the house. Moriah said I should clip a little fan on my skirt and walk around with it blowing on me! I'll have to get a few more extension cords first...but it was a pretty ingenious idea...in my opinion!

I've been having really weird dreams also, which I don't remember with my girls. I woke up this morning dreaming about Walmart. Just me and a shopping cart...walking every aisle...in a/c....reading the labels (a weird hobby of mine)...and eating pudding. Man, that would be so much fun!

Josh took me and the girls into town yesterday, to get groceries. Riding in the air conditioned van is sooo wonderful! I always think I should take my pillow and have a good nap in the cool air, but I try to relish each cold minute! Silly, I know, but I really do enjoy it so! We were able to buy a wall-mounted fan for Moriah. It will make a big difference, since she sleeps on the top bunk.

We also went out to Chinese for lunch. It was so much fun! It is really, really good and pretty cheap.

Oh, Maria, I feel for you. I understand the nausea, the fatigue, the getting sick over sweets, and the frustration. And you make me so thankful that it isn't hot here yet. I become very grumpy in the heat.
Just remember, this too shall pass. I keep reminding myself of Elisabeth's friend who has endured so much nausea and pain for a reason they can't pinpoint. I know what my reason is and I have a deadline and when it comes, I will hold a sweet baby in my arms again. :)
It's still hard to remember all that when it's you, though. Especially when it drags on day after day. Wishing you a good day today!
Love, Amy

I's so sorry you feel so bad Maria. I can't wait for you to be passed this point in the pregnancy, or even the whole thing, I know it will be very hot and miserable the bigger you get. Hopefully the it won't be so bad once you get past the first couple of months. I'm so sorry, Sweetie. I love you and I'm praying for you. Remember to take care of yourself.

Oh sista... I understand. Well, I don't live in that kind of heat but the rest of it I totally get. There was a few months during this one that all I did was lie around. I WaNTED to get up and do.. clean, play with the girls, be good company for Seth, do more of the things I should... but it was really just about physically impossible.SO at leat know that you're aren't alone in that!

Hope you feel a bit better soon. ♥
