Well, Hello Again!
It has been to long since I last blogged. In December, I found out I was expecting baby numero dos! Just in time for my husband's 30th birthday where we announced it to the family. It seemed just as soon as we announced the news that I began to fall ill. Morning sickness. But not just regular morning sickness, Hyperemesis Gravadarum. It literally feels like death.
I took a break from everything: Homeschooling, cleaning, going outside and yes, even blogging. It's awful and unlike anything I have ever experienced before. It landed me in the hospital at one point, but thank God, Baby and I are fine. I've cried a lot, mostly out of frustration of not being able to keep anything down. I'm on Diclegis now, which is a medicine designed for women who suffer from severe morning sickness and it has made all of the difference.
I didn't picture myself having to be on meds my entire pregnancy and hopefully that's not the case, but for now it is working for me and helping me gain weight for the pregnancy and my ever so growing baby. At 13 weeks and a day I feel myself again- almost!
I'm happy to be blogging again and getting back to my normal routine and I am so very excited to share this journey with you all. Malakai is so excited to be a big brother and has even said the baby is a girl! We'll see! TA TA for now!
