second trimester!

Yeah! I've finally made it to the second trimester! I had high hopes that the ickiness would stop by now, but not yet. I don't think I've blogged since the morning sickness has kicked in in high gear, but I'm learning how to deal with it.

We got to see the boogers again last week, and they're doing well. We still don't know who's who or what's what, but they look like little aliens. :o) I love my little et's.

We've been keeping really busy but it's all going really well. The hub is settling in and it's so cute to hear people call him "Preacher". I still get to do what I want to do at the church and no one really expects anything of me - and they still see me as a church leader! It's great. :o)

I'm totally in maternity clothes at this point, and I don't mind them, for the most part. My mother keeps buying me 5x's (no kidding) and saying that I'll eventually get into them. *rolls eyes* Why don't we wait and see how much of a whale I become before we start ordering the bed hoist, shall we? It sounds horrible to say, but it's really a blessing that she's 4 hours away. She'd be driving me crazy if she were any closer. (and we won't even start on my Gran...) They're just worry'ers. My Dad and Kelley have been really great, though. Nothing negative, always excited and full of support. (and Dad's always willing to fix me whatever I want to eat...)

Jeremy's dad is doing much much better. The doctor released him from the heart center's care, and the hospital is writing off most of the charges. (they didn't have insurance) They've decided that they can take on buying our house, so that's one less burden on us. It's totally an answer to prayers.

I hope all is well, and I appreciate all of your support! I think about you all the time, and I miss you guys!!

Smooches & Hugs!!

Hey! So glad to hear things are going well! Second trimester already?! Next thing you know you'll be posting that you had them! boy time flies.
Sounds like you are settling in fine. Sorry to hear about the 5X, you look no 'wear' near a 5X, even if those babes take over your body! lol.
Keep us posted!

WOO HOO for the 2nd trimester! I didn't start feeling better with this one until about 16 weeks, but it DOES get better!

Sorry about the 5x's though! That sucks. Sometimes I am VERY happy that we live 2+ hours from our family...otherwise they would drive me NUTS with all their guessing and comments (especially my MIL).

Keep in touch and let us know ASAP what those babies are! :0)

Hooray for the 2nd trimester! Hang in there I know the "ickiness" will be over soon!
I can't wait to hear more updates, will be thinking about you and as always keeping you in my prayers!

Yeah for getting treated with respect and not having to do anything. Woohoo! Enjoy it while you can, chickie. Hope you're feeling better soon - I'd tell anyone who EVER tried to give me a 5x to burn the things. It's principle.
