Wake up around 6:30 - 7am, head downstairs and eat something before my body has a chance to feel nausea. Head upstairs to take a shower. Lay down for 15-20 minutes to try to overcome the nausea. Watch Hannah until the nanny gets here at 8am. Go to work. Head downstairs every hour or more to find something to eat and refill the water bottle. by 2pm lay down until the nausea subsides. Work until 3:30 when the nanny leaves. Lay on the couch as Hannah plays (or climbs all over me) and I try my best not to get sick. Ernest gets home around 4:30 and watches Hannah and makes something to eat for dinner while I die on the couch; or if I'm able to make it I'll work another hour or two. If I can't make it to put Hannah to sleep I head to bed at 6:30. Otherwise I put Hannah to bed and am in bed myself by 8pm.
When I can think past the nausea I try to reflect upon what God is doing within me to form my child. I believe that pregnancy is a powerful spiritual journey. When I was pregnant with Hannah it was the most spiritual journey I have ever been on. I could feel God's presence as He formed her inside of me. So I am devoting this pregnancy as well to my spiritual journey with God. I dedicate my little Blueberry to HIM and realize this is His child that He is gifting to me for a time. I have done nothing in my life to deserve this little one. Indeed Psalm 127:3 is true that "... children are a heritage of the Lord. The fruit of the womb is a reward." Hannah has been one of the greatest rewards I have been given and I already feel the same way about this little Blueberry inside of me.
One thing that has been quite the problem is motion sickness. A moving car makes me sick, and sometimes walking around I feel sick. So my workouts have stopped completely until I can get over this hump. I also am house bound most of the time as I just hate feeling so sick in the car. Please pray for me! I'm heading to a coworkers house tomorrow morning (Friday) for some training. It will be the first time in a care in over a week. I pray that I am okay. I am just thankful that Hannah is staying over night with my in-laws. I don't think I could handle motion sickness, driving, and my daughter all at once.
I'm going through a book called "Nine Months to a Miracle." I've only made it through month one but have been very blessed by what I've read. If you know anyone that is pregnant tell them about this book. It is a spiri
