An official apology

I just wanted to quickly update everyone on how I am doing and how the baby is doing. Partly just to keep everyone up to date and partly to explain why I have not been answering my phone or sticking around after church.

The good news is that I believe the baby is doing well. I am at 8 weeks today, yup the two month mark which feels pretty good (minus the nausea). We have our first doctors appointment two weeks from tomorrow when we will be hearing our baby's heartbeat for the first time. I cannot wait.

The bad news is that I have pretty much been lying in bed or on the couch for the last two weeks. I am continuing to work as much as I can and at this point have miraculously only taken off 3 hours of sick time. But because I am continuing to work I am pretty much exhausted at night. So I just wanted to officially apologize if I do not answer my phone or hang out after church. You can even ask my mother, it took her all weekend to get a hold of me and then we only talked for about five minutes. In fact my dad has been down here twice since I found out I was pregnant and I only saw him briefly once (first time I have seen him in a year).

So I am really looking forward to getting past this first trimester and hopefully returning to some type of normalcy, at least maybe being able to cook and clean again, I know my very patient husband will appreciate it.

Also, if you think about it you can pray that I feel well this next weekend. I am heading up to P-Town for a weekend with my mom and sis, pre-wedding, pre-baby. My sister is getting married in January so we are going to do some wedding planning and just good old fashioned hanging out. I am just praying I can make it through the weekend with out my couch to lay on.


  1. it sounds like you're having a rough time! i remember the exhaustion being really intense - i can't imagine that with nausea on top of it. it's great that you have such a fabulous husband to support you through it all :o]

  2. I want you to know that I am praying for you. It does get better; and the end reward is the best! Can't wait for you and Joel to be parents!

  3. I hear it gets way better after the first trimester! Hang in there!

    We'll be praying for you. :) Brian and I are going to be in Portland this weekend too! Good old tax free christmas shopping. Woot! Maybe we'll see you around. ;)
