I know it has been a long time since I have posted, and I would say
I have not had time, but that certainly is not the case, it is more
that I do not do anything at all... It is rare I leave the house, and
when I do it is not anything too exciting..

I have been put off work since the end of Novenber and unless
I start feeling better it will be until the end of my pregnancy.
Thankfully I have a great sick program at work for short term
sick leave, so I am not left high and dry and am still bringing
home money.

It has not been easy being home every day doing nothing.
I sit and watch TV, watch movies, read, knit.. The less I move
the better I feel, which is hard. I feel like my muscles are
going into atrophy, just going up the stairs makes me winded..
Not a lot of fun.

I should not be complaining all the time, and I wish I could
say I am one of those women who LOVE being pregnant but
that is not the case. I have another appointment on the 19th
and we shall see just how much more weight I have lost,
hopefully I will have stopped going down too much more,
though from how I look and feel I can say I have lost more
weight, which sucks.. I am keeping "some" food down, but
not a lot of variety.

My 31st Birthday came and went without a lot of fan fare..
We did manage to get out on the night before. I had purchased
tickets for James Blunt months ago before I ever started getting
sick and was determined to go to the concert. My body was
kind to me and I made it through the concert and did not throw
up until I got out into the parking lot. The concert was so
Entertaining.. He sings with so much honest passion and I
loved it.

My husband has been wonderful and takes amazing care of me.
He does EVERYTHING around the house, including the grocery
shopping, dishes, laudry.. cleaning.. He does it all.. It is wonderful.

So nothing all too exciting to report..
I am home all day long...
Looking forward to enjoying the Holidays the best I can.

I'm so sorry it's been so difficult!! Hopefully things will turn around soon and you'll be able to at least enjoy part of your pregnancy!

Sorry to read that you are not feeling so hot. I can relate to you on that one, but I have 4 kids still to chase. Hopefully bedrest won't happen, mind you somedays I would take the break. Hopefully the New Year will look up and you will start gaining weight and feeling better. I would gladly give you some of the weight I've put on this pregnancy.....I always put on more then I would like.....hang in there and hope the holidays are good to you and your hubby!!!
