for the most part. I think overall I am heading toward feeling like a normal human being, but not quite there yet. The past week has mostly been better. The funny thing is, though, that I feel like my mornings are getting a tiny bit better, but my nights are getting worse. Anybody that has any really brilliant ideas on how to eradicate heartburn, please let me know. Ug. I never even KNEW what heartburn really was until I was pregnant w/ my first. Now I really, really know. I look at tomatoes and want to cry. I LOVE tomatoes! And I can't even go near them right now.
At the exact same time, I am so thankful to be pregnant right now. I just got done visiting teaching and was re-reminded how you just never know...there are SO many things that can & do go wrong in creating these amazing, miraculous bodies.
I like John Bytheway's book How to be Totally Miserable (a self-hinder book). His first chapter talks about our "imagi-nation" and if we want to be totally miserable, we need to go to our "imagi-nation" (ya know, like the French Nation) and imagine all the horrible things that could go wrong in life. So - I'll try to stay away from there & know that all I can do is try & take care of myself and leave the rest up to the Lord.
On a side note, I had just enough energy yesterday to rotate Ireland's 18month clothes to 2T. Not one of my favorite chores - I swear it takes half a day to go through all her old clothes, pack them away, get out the new ones organize them and get them hung up. I have to say, though, that I am amazed every time I do it. Wasn't McKinley just wearing these jeans yesterday? Wow - I remember McKinley wearing this adorable shirt all the time. How did she get so big?
Also - thanks to everyone for your birthday wishes and your congrats on our new one. I love all of you!
