I haven’t posted since July 1st. 3 weeks.
I’ll tell you why. But promise me, don’t feel sorry for me. You really don’t need to feel bad for me.
I’ve been really sick. Everyone (annoyingly) tells you that nausea goes away after your first trimester. Well, it didn’t. In fact, it got worse. I have to keep barf-bags in the car. I have to know where the closest restroom is at all times, and the fastest route to it. I have to keep zofran stock piled in my purse. The throwing up has not stopped. At all. So, that’s pretty exhausting. And then, the past 3 weeks have added something new to this pregnancy. Cramping. Nausea is normal. You deal with it. But cramping is another story. Sometimes it’s normal. Sometimes it’s not. Non-stop cramping for a few weeks is kind of concerning. But luckily, I’m okay and the baby is okay. But it isn’t stopping. The solution: do less. A LOT LESS. Do nothing that causes stress. Any kind of stress. The verdict from my doctor, my husband, my mom, my loving coworkers and boss, is bed rest.
So, I haven’t really done projects. I’ve been too tired. Aaron has been really amazing at taking care of me. And projects are slow going because of it. He did get a vast amount done this weekend though. And I’m so proud of him, and grateful for my dad for helping. It’s so frustrating not being able to help. I just watch. And it seriously makes me crazy. I want to do SOMETHING. But I basically get yelled at anytime I even stand up. Lame sauce. Later this week I will show you the progress that has been made in the kitchen. It’s fantastic.
Next topic: HAVEN. Let’s not forget I bought my Haven Conference ticket New Years Day, when no baby was on the horizon. I am pretty worried about Haven now. I’m past the point of being able to get a refund on my conference ticket, hotel, and air fare, since it’s ya know, less than TWO WEEKS AWAY. I’m nervous. I’m still going to try and go. Luckily, my mom decided to come with me. She’s going to take good care of me, and make sure I don’t do more than I should. I just have to remember that I probably won’t be able to do everything I want to do. But anything I CAN do, will still be a benefit. I’m still nervous though. My blog has pretty much gotten the shaft lately, so going to a conference to build it seems a little ridiculous. But hopefully I can learn some great new things, and meet wonderful new people and sprout this little blog into a flower. That would be nice 🙂
Sorry for this post being so wordy. I really don’t want you to feel sorry for me. I’m so tough. I can handle it. I just wanted to let you know why I’ve been hiding a little.
And to make your day a little bit brighter, here’s this:
