short and sweet....

I have sat down many times and started a blog, but I have failed to finish. I have received several emails, so I thought I better at least post something. The IV's are gone, but the vomiting and nausea have decided to stay around. They come and go....2 days good, 1 day bad....... I still haven't been able to feel our little one move yet, which concerns me, but I know it may still be too early. I have finally started to get some energy back.. I was literally sleeping all night and half the day!!!

Jesse and I are still super nervous and anxious about this pregnancy....it is so hard to not think about what happened with Braxton. The sermon last Sunday was on "letting go" and not being stuck on the "why" of our painful pasts. I cried the entire sermon, b/c I am not ready to "let go." I find it difficult to be sad about Braxton and happy about the new baby. Those two emotions just don't go hand in hand. I know that fear and anxiety are not of God, so any prayers to keep this feelings away would be appreciated.

Jesse just got lay-off papers yesterday, so July 31 will be his last day of work. He is actually very content with the situation.....he is a super hard worker, so he already has some things that he can do. I, on the other hand, am not as thrilled. I like him being home at 3 everyday, and with the prospective positions, there is no definite "off" time. I have tried to tell myself that at least it is a job, and I don't have to work. I am so thankful that he can provide for the both of us. He is the hardest working man I know, and yet I know I don't tell him enough how appreciative I am.

We have our 18 week appt in 2 weeks. Hopefully, I will have felt something by then. I felt Braxton during week 17 for the first time, and then frequently after 18.5 weeks.

I do appreciate all the emails and comments regarding my whereabouts!!! I promise to be a more frequent poster, just as soon as I get more energy back!

So glad to hear from you again. Sorry that you are still not back to 100% but glad that it is at least slowly coming back. I am so with you on the anxiety issues and going back and forth on emotions with this pregnancy. Thinking of you and hoping it gets better! Hope to hear more from you soon.

I have been thinking about you. I am sure you will feel your little peanut move soon...no worries - ok? Just enjoy every moment that you have and try not to worry. Hope you start feeling better REAL soon.

Hugs & Prayers,
Lisa

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
2 Tim 1:7

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
John 14:26-27

Love you!
