11 weeks today!

First things first.  In case I haven't mentioned it, I am so over the moon happy to be expecting this baby!!!  If that gets lost in all the complaining, well, I'm sorry.  I don't mean for it to.  I just never realized how bad pregnancy sickness (I am unwilling to call it morning sickness from hence forward) can be.

Only 29 more weeks to go, and even if I'm sick the whole 29 weeks (please, God, NO!) I know that it'll be worth it.  I try to keep looking forward to the day I deliver my baby.  That moment when they lay the bloody, gooey miracle on my chest.  I honestly bawl sometimes just thinking about it.  (Truth be told, I cry at pretty much anything these days.)

I also can't wait to find out if we're having a boy or girl.  I can't wait to pick out the nursery decorations.  I can't wait to register and pick out all the tiny little things we'll be using to take care of our baby.  I can't wait to introduce our baby to our families.  (I can't wait to not be sick anymore!)

So even though a lot of my blogging and status updates have to do with, well, um, complaining, I just want to set the record straight.  Yes, I complain because I feel like crap.  I'm weak from puking and no food.  But in the end, I'm really, truly happy.  I'm already in love with our baby and can't wait to hold him or her in my arms!!

We're thrilled for you and John. I was sick all 28 weeks with Christine. Although very rough and scary around time she came . . . all so worth it.

I think I sent you a message on Facebook about Emitrol (sp) and then there's Fenagan (sp) for nausea. My midwife said after Christine was born, perhaps she should have prescribed me it to me. You think!

Nevertheless God's ways are so much higher. We are praying for you, the baby and John. May you know God's perfect comfort even more in these seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months to come. Run to His Word to find solace, comfort and strength. Also, find songs to fill your hearts and minds.

Love to each of you!

Kathy, Rob & Christine
