many of you have been kind enough to inquire about my lack of blogging. it seems pregnancy is NOT agreeing with me during the first trimester this time. for the past month i have hardly left my bed and have been forcing myself to eat the small amounts i have eaten. i sleep 16 + hours a day and feel i could sleep all 24 with no problem. i can't be anywhere near food (kitchen, trash can, grocery store, etc) without wretching. it has been a really rough time, but i am so thankful for the support of my friends and for the way my husband has stepped up and basically taken over my role in addition to his. sonny has been amazing and i have many people praying for us during this time. i am trying to focus on the fact that this will only last for a time and that it is for the sake of our new little one. i have tried several medications and tons of home remedies (ginger, B6, preggie pops, etc) and some work better than others, but nothing gives me total relief. i look forward to the day when this is a memory, but for now i thought i'd fill you in a bit. here's hopin' there will be a fun picture or decorating blog post soon!
