The Reality of Pregnancy

Friday, March 30, 2007

I had one day to enjoy being pregnant before reality set in with the onset of pregnancy symptoms that aren't so much fun. With Samuel, I started getting migraines around my 8th week of pregnancy, and other than sore breasts, had no other symptoms before that time. This time, symptoms have started much earlier.

We spent the day in the car traveling home today, and I spent the better portion of the trip in a fetal position with a migraine while Landon drove. To top it off, I was feeling pretty nauseated. I have to admit, I had a few thoughts like, "What have I gotten myself into?" The low moment was when Samuel started throwing up all over the car (he came down with a cold/flu yesterday)and we still had about 60 miles left to go. We'd been traveling for 6 hours by then, my head was pounding, and the smell of Samuel's vomit only increased my nausea to the point where I thought I was going to be sick myself. I quickly cleaned up the car while Landon changed Samuel on the hood, and we were on the road again. Soon, we were home, the car was cleaned out, my headache was almost completely gone, and I again felt happy about being pregnant. When I'm not suffering from a migraine, this pregnancy really does feel like one of those "meant to be" circumstances in life.


P.S. We called and told my Mom, Dad, & siblings tonight--everyone is excited!

Everything is in God's hands. It does seem like perfect timing for sure, Karli. It is fun to read all of your blogs because it brings back so-so many memories about being pregnant with all of you kids. I am so happy that you take the time to do this!!
