"Food" for thought

Well, some of you have told me about ways to avoid "sickness".....some of you have said to eat more and some have said to drink more and others still have said to take the vitamin at night. So, today I am going to try the vitamin at night. I have tried to eat more....this morning for breakfast, I did pretty good and then at lunch, I was dying for Taco was GREAT going down!!! I loved every minute of it but after a while, not so much!!! I didnt get sick, but I burped it up all afternoon!!! Then for dinner the best choice for me was a cheese burger and when it came, I ate two bites and was so full, I could not breathe!!!!! What is going on? Back in the day, I could have eaten the whole burger, fries and a piece of cheese cake!!! I guess this is good, because my goal is to only gain 25lbs. Some think that is an unreasonable goal, but I am trying to take care of myself. So, if this keeps up, I might just make it. This baby does like Mexican though I think. Taco Bell was a little much, but well worth it at the time.

just an update

not much to tell right now. Today I am celebrating my 8 year anniversary! My sweet hubby sent me some beautiful flowers. I am feeling a bit puny today. Very sleepy! I guess that is normal right? Have a bit of a headache and I think it is due in part to a lack of water.....I must do better in that area! Ya'll pray for me that I will take good care of myself and do what I know I must do. Like drink water.

First comes love then comes marriage......

Then comes Summer with a baby carriage!!! Literally!! Last night, much to my joy and surprise, Leah and Becky gave me the most perfect gift! I have a charm bracelet, it is called Pandora and they gave me a baby carriage charm!!! I love it. What a joy to have a friend who has seen you through love, marriage and now a baby!!!! Things are good here by the way. Last night at church, it was fun because the rumor was out!!! So many people have prayed for us and with us and to share this news was the best. Thanks for all the info on maternity clothes by the way. And Gina, thanks for thinking about me for the box of maternity stuff, I will sure take it!! Stay tuned for more on this saga. Is it too early for me to have cravings? I am not sure if this was a craving or if I am just a pig and want what I want. But, I am eating a lot of peanut butter right now. Who knows, right? Thanks for checking on me!

more pregnancy notes

I know, it might get old to some of you, but I can not stop saying it! I am pregnant!!! I feel great! I am very tired and have had a little nausea but nothing that I can not handle. I want to eat right and take good care of myself but I seem to be very hungry during the day but not a whole lot at night. I know that I am not nearly showing yet, but my pants are already feeling tight! At the first of the day, they are fine but by 5 or so, they feel soooo tight!!!! I guess that I am going to have to get some granny panties and then move on up to the next you think that I am ready to get maternity pants? I don't think so, but some of you who have been down this road, tell me what you think. Thanks for sharing in our joy!! We are blessed!!!

With God ALL Things are Possible

Well, I do not even know where to begin. It has been a long time since I have posted so I may not even have any blog followers anymore. That is okay. I originally started this blog to put my own thoughts down and it turned into a place where I got to catch up with people and meet new friends. For any of you who do not know, I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 8 years and for nearly 5 of those, we have been trying to get pregnant. We have had ups and downs over these years but, we have been trusting in the Lord! DH has been way more faithful than me and he has never given up, I on the other hand have wavered in my faith more than once. Six months ago, we began using a fertility monitor which basically told us when the peak time for us to try would be. Well, as the Lord would have it, we are finally pregnant!!! Yes, it is a very big shock and a pleasant pleasant surprise!!! I am now 7 weeks and we have had an ultra sound and heard the heart beat! What a joy!! We have been in a daze!!! WE have been rejoicing and are so full of praise to the Lord for what He has done for us. Now, I would appreciate your prayers and look forward to sharing with you all that this new journey will involve. Praise be to God
