Holy cow, it's been a long time...

I can't believe it's been so long since my last entry! Bean & I are doing well and have been very busy. A road trip to Arizona, physical therapy, pregnancy classes & spending time with friends & family has been fun, but exhausting!

Arizona knocked me on my butt! A six hour road trip, 100+ degree weather & lack of air conditioning the first night...ugh! But being able to spend time with old friends made it all worth it. I won't be doing it again any time soon though. :D

I started physical therapy as well to help strengthen my arms and relax my almost Prednisone free body. My therapist was great, but only taking 1 mg of Prednisone every other day & feeling tight from continuing morning sickness has made things difficult.

Morning sickness is still haunting me. :( I think it's slowly going away though. I have a couple good days & then it's back again. I think I'm having every possible pregnancy side effect right now, so I'm still looking forward to the blissful second trimester that I keep reading about.

We had our 15 week check-up last week & Bean is doing great...healthy & extremely active. Dr. Gleeson even knows if Bean is a boy or a girl, but my hubby still insists that he doesn't want to know, so it'll be another 170 days until I know too. I'd never be able to keep it a secret, so as long as my doc can keep it hush hush, we'll all just have to wait. :p


  1. 170 days will go so quickly :) good to hear all is going well. Hope the pregnancy symptoms ease soon are your bones behave. x

  2. I'm sooooo happy to hear you and the bean are doing well! Thanks for the update I missed hearing about you :)

    I am praying for you and your family, I know you are going to have a wonderful and healthy pregnancy the rest of the way.....believe it!

    Keep the updates coming please :)

  3. Thanks for the well wishes girls! Things are actually calming down and my morning sickness is getting better. I actually think I was becoming lactose intolerant, so I've stayed away from everything dairy for a few days & have been doing much better! Hoping that was the problem & that the rest of my pregnancy is as enjoyable as the past few days have been.

    Hope you're both doing well & I promise I'll try harder to get off my butt & update more often. :D All the best!
