God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Random Thoughts !

Hello all,
I want to apologize for being MIA. I know that a few of you have been wondering how I am doing. I want to say thank you for those of you that have emailed me to check and see how I am feeling and doing, it means alot to me that others care and are praying for me. It is very touching to know that I have friends in the blogging sphere that do checkup and follow my blog, you are all truly amazing and awesome women.

1. I am feeling somewhat better with the migraines, I have good days and bad ones. My Neurologist increased my Inderal to help with keeping my headaches under control, a safe level that is supposedly safe and won't harm baby. I have faith in them that they know what they are doing. I missed a week of work do to the migraines. As long as I take the Tylenol and stay on top of it then my headaches are tolerable.

2.I have to say I am now experiencing morning sickness. I find it hard sometimes to keep things down (to much info, sorry), But I am not going to complain. It is really terrible when I have to shallow pills, or brush my teeth. My Gag reflex is not good at the moment. I have lost 9 lbs since I find out I was pregnant, I try to eat what I am hungry for and go with that. My cravings at the moment are Abry's- Beef and Cheddar and Subway-Bacon Ranch and grilled cheese.

3. My first Ob appt is January the 29th with my OB (2 wks from today I can't wait. I have been released from the RE, since we heard the heartbeat and saw our peanut on the screen. I am can't wait to see our little one again and I hope and pray that baby is getting enough food to grow and be health since I can't keep much down. I am still nervous, I love this baby so much, I have a good feeling that all is going to workout for this pregnancy. GOD is in Control and I have faith that he is going to keep our baby safe. I have heard that the sicker that you are with the morning sickness that means that baby is healthy.

4. We find out on December 26th that we were expecting. I cried. I can't believe after almost 2 yrs of Infertility and trying and all that we have been through, God is awesome and he does answer our prayers in his timing. That morning I called the Re and they had me go straight to have blood work with our history. My numbers were: 12/26/08- hcg 1,475, progesterone-20.3, 12/28/08- hcg 1,925, and 12/30/08- hcg-7,359. They put me on the progesterone suppositories for precaution until 15 wks. I have been crampy at times, but they say that is normal. I go from being constipated one day to diarrhea the next it is a cycle. I can't wait to see peanut and hear the heartbeat again on the 29th, I am trying to enjoy everyday with my pregnancy, I hope that I start showing soon.

5.I am so thankful and grateful that Gods has given us our miracle, I thank him everyday. I pray that this little peanuts stays put and grows and I have a healthy and safe 9 months.

6. I am going to try and get caught on everyone blogs this weekend, it is hard, because when I come home from work I am exhausted and the computer is the last thing to mess with since I am on one all day for my job. When I come home I try to do as minimal as possible on here, my eyes and head are killing by the end of the day.

I want to say thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. Please keep me and peanut in your prayers.

I am so glad you are doing well. You are giving me so much hope that we will also have a baby soon. I feel so hopeless sometimes that I need to remember we arent out yet! You have to post ultrasound pic again when the baby is bigger. God will keep this baby safe.
