Still here...

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!

Congratulations on your pregnancy Heidi! That's so exciting. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. There's nothing worse! Let me know if there's anything I can do for you.

I'm way behind on the blogging world! Congrats!! That's so exciting. I'm with ya on the heartburn and the sickness! Prilosec all the way baby!!! I get heartburn soooo bad & if you take that everyday, you will feel like a new woman!!! It takes it away! I took it most of me pregnancy and for some reason the last few weeks it stopped working. SO I think your body can get use to it? I dunno. I would hold off till u can't take it anymore and then start taking prilosec sp? Just cuz your heartburn will prob get worse.

As for your sickness and throwing up, you've prob been told, but zofran is a miracle drug! It didn't make me feel 100% better, but it helped me keep my food down and helped a bit with the sickness. Good luck! Personally, I think pregnancy is the hardest time of my life!

I have not checked the blogs for awhile...so Congratulations!! I am excited for your family. As for the heartburn, I don't have any suggestions. That is the one thing I did not have problems with. I am glad to hear you are feeling a little better. Also, Happy belated 30th. I just love it when the hubby plans a big surprise!

Congratulations! Hope you get feeling better. I can totally understand about tomatoes, except with my last pregnancy it was pastrami. I loved pastrami, but I still can't stand the sight of it. While I was pregnant, I couldn't even watch the pastrami sandwich Subway commericals on TV without feeling sick.
