Grateful


I haven't been feeling too good lately with lots of indegestion and just feeling exhausted. By the end of the day I just don't want to hear my name anymore and all I can think about is getting home to the couch and snuggie! It should get better anytime though. I'm going to the doctor this coming Friday and we get to hear the heartbeat. We didn't get to hear it with our ultrasound last time. James has been the best husband I could ever ask for! One night I was craving something to drink besides water, milk, or orange juice, so he went to the store and brought home all five flavors of a low calorie sport's drink. He actually went to the store a few nights in a row to get me things. He has been stressed out at work and working a lot of overtime but he still comes home with a smile on his face and caters to my needs. What a great guy!
We are headed to St. Louis this weekend after the doctor's appointment. We are excited to see family and friends. I'm just trying to make it through this week and really it is a short week for me. Only one more week of school and then I get a spring break. I hope it gets here fast.
We are putting an offer in on a house tomorrow morning and we just can't wait to get our baby stuff out and start nesting.

Have a great week everyone.

What a doll! I drink those vitamin waters sometimes for the same reason, you just need something different.
This baby is so lucky! He (or SHE) is going to be so loved and spoiled :)

Now that is what I am looking for in a man...it's not so easy to find! I am glad you found a wonderful husband! Good luck with the house.

Way to go James!
Hope you get to relax a lot during your spring break--and get to nest very soon!

I hope you start feeling better in the second trimester! Oh, Dave said you all should look for houses in Evergreen. Have fun in St. Louis!
