Did someone order some relief??

Wow, what a busy few weeks… That or I’m just losing track of time. I must say that this past week I have felt relief from the “morning” sickness. It hasn’t completely gone away, BUT there are times when I don’t feel as crappy as others. Plus tonight I was able to get some of my house clean!!! This has been a daunting task for me. I now HATE washing dishes, the smell of the soap makes me want to gag, and cleaning any other part of the house means that Grant wants to play right there and mess it up like it was before. Grant was a good helper tonight, and I got quite a bit done!!
This past Sunday, the three of us dyed Easter eggs. We won't be home over Easter, and thought this would be fun!! Boy was it fun to watch Grant!!
Grant's 1st taste of a hard boiled egg...
Yeah NOT so much!!!
Angry Grant... This was right before he threw it!!!
We have got the cutest kid ever. Lately he has been really cuddly, and LOVES to kiss me (maybe he sees his dad give me kisses and he wants to be like his dad...) He is so fun. He now knows where his nose, ears, and belly button. He has really started loving on Mark too, and it just makes my heart swell!! I can't wait for them to go to the Father & Son camp out in May.

Mark has also been such a sweetheart. I don’t think we could have for seen how sick I was going to get. With Grant, I threw up one night, and never again. With this one, I have not thrown up, but every waking moment I’ve wanted too. Smells have sent me over the edge too!! I told Mark that I think our Heavenly Father knew that I needed to feel better with Grant, because I was going to have to endure so much. But with this one, our Heavenly Father knows that I need Mark’s support and help (I’ve been very independent up until now, and I’m slowly learning I can’t do it on my own). Mark has been GREAT!! I had my 1st Dr’s appointment 2 weeks ago, and left feeling like the biggest piece of poo! I don’t need someone telling me that I’m over weight, I already know that! I don’t need someone telling me they will only do X amount of c-sections… They don’t know me at all, I do what I want too! But Mark worried about me, and kept telling me that I wasn't this or that, and told me all the right things.
This past Thursday I had to work 12 hours. It was a long day, but I wanted to get home as fast as I could to Mark and Grant. By the time I got home Grant was already in bed, but Mark had put a little surprise together for me. It made me cry!! I married the MOST AWESOME guy ever. I love him to death!!
You have to love the bath tub surrounds!! It's a project in progress. And in case you can't tell, he did a candle lit bath, had music going, and made me a pina colada (AND FRESH FRUIT HMMM!!)

I"m so sorry you were so sick, but I am glad that you are starting to come out of it! I think having the sick feeling, but not being able to throw up is worse. At least when you throw up you feel good for a little while, if not for only a few minutes!

Over weight my foot, I'd kill to have your figure.

I'm so happy that you have such a great companion and help meet. I can really identify with the bath. One day I was having a big time pity party. When I came home I had a tub waiting for me to soak in. When you have the right man beside you, it is truly a blessing. Love ya

I'm glad you're feeling better! Morning sickness is not fun! At least you haven't really thrown up. I'd rather feel like crap all the time than throw up all the time!
