alternate titles for this post – Morning Sickness Bites, Glad it Appears to be Gone; Hello, Morning (Sickness) Glory; and I Hate Throwing Up
Apparently the creative forces at work within me are a little tied up right now.
Two things to tell you this evening.
- I’ve had a hard two weeks with morning, noon, night sickness that sometimes comes with pregnancy. It started with nausea and ended with me 6 pounds lighter. Silver lining – I met my May weight loss goal times two (don’t worry, the trend seems to have hit a screeching halt since I have been able to eat again).
- I am so unbelievably thankful for my husband and those who have been praying for me.
Usually for me, whatever form of morning sickness I have sticks with me the entire nine months. For those curious, #1 was morning, noon, night can’t keep anything down; #2 was a little nausea in the morning, gone by lunch; and #3 was a little more nausea that sometimes hung around past lunch.
So I am rejoicing in the fact that while I was so sick these past two weeks, Friday seemed to turn a corner for me. I haven’t thrown any food or drink up. Wohoo! And the nausea seems to be minimal.
I can not tell you how thankful I am for those who have told me they were praying for me. This past Wednesday I was laying in bed composing an email plea for prayer to our church’s prayer chain in my head, but since I didn’t have the energy to actually sit at the computer and type it all out, it remained a theoretical plea.
Then today I had at least three people tell me they were praying for me. I checked my Twitter feed and saw that some of my online friends also sent word that they were praying.
I am one blessed woman.
I am so thankful.
God is good.
