Will I Make It?

I'm hoping that I will feel up to going to the Oregon Campout. As it is, I feel good in the morning and early afternoons, but then I take a steady decline around 2-3pm. By 7pm I feel sicker than a dog. Although, to be honest, I haven't really seen a dog sick on a regular basis. However, I still felt the pull to use that old cliche'.

So I get up in the morning, and I am scrambling to get things accomplished. Especially any out of house duties that need to be taken care of. I haven't been as sick for the hours in a day that I am normally plagued with morning sickness, but it really starts to bog me down. Den only gets to see me on the downhill slide anymore, since he doesn't get home til later. I am sort of a drag to come home to.

Thankfully, the boys are awesome about staying on top of their chores though. So Den isn't coming home to the sort of messes he did when I was first starting to build our family. However, things still drive me batty. I sat on the floor of Roman's room today, trying to comfort the screaming toddler, and it was working as long as I was sitting beneath him as we watched Curious George for the umpteenth million time. As I sat there, my eyes scanned the room. The dirty walls, the dirty closet door from all the children that have graced that bedroom in the last few months. I could see stuff shoved in the closet that didn't belong there, and I began to think about all the things that needed to be done before we left for the campout on Friday. I felt overwhelmed.

I know that some of this stuff will just have to wait. After all, it's not everyday I make a baby, but if anyone knows me at all, then they know that it drives me nuts. Thankfully, we are managing, and like I said I feel like I am in a mad dash to get a lot accomplished in the hours that I feel decent. I have to keep reminding myself that this is only a season, and it won't be long before it's over. Remind myself? More like an endless chant as I avoid corners and closets of unseen rooms.

Anyway, for now I am about to lie down again. It's 6:30pm and I am so nauseous. I want to be fun for Den when he gets home. Ya know, forget about fun I want to seem like I have some life in me when he gets home. Actually, I just want to be aware of the fact that he IS home....LOL.

Thank you for your prayers as I continue to weather the storm of morning sickness. God has been so merciful to me that I want to be careful to give Him credit. He has been generous when I needed it, and during the other times it may be His way of just slowing me down. After all, I'm not as young as I used to be, now am I?

I am so sorry that your bad time is when your honey is home. But I am thankful that you have some good moments to get things done. And yes those closets can wait awhile. Only do what is important. I am praying for you, keep those prayers for us going we need them.

I'm praying for you... I'm selfish, I want to see you at the campout! I miss you guys so much!! Seriously, I am glad you are feeling better this pregnancy, but I wish you felt great. You know, there comes a time when the dust in the corners really doesn't matter all that much. Take care of you, your baby... and the important things. The dust will still be there when you are feeling better. Ugh... that sounds awful. Sorry. Wish I was there to help!

I'm sorry Trina. I never was sick with any of my pregnancies. I know it doesnt sound very fair but trust me, I made up for it when my delivery came. I sent you an email so check your box. Hopefully I still have correct address. It is a hotmail account.

When you are going through a trial it feels like an eternity doesn't it. When we look back it wasn't really that long. I guess it is just part it. I am glad you feel better at least part of the day. I know Dennis understands and knows it is just for a time. I will keep on praying for you.

So sorry that with the end of the day also comes the "dread"...You are right and this is just for a season! You have been amazing through all this and I know the Lord has had great mercy! Don't worry about all the little things, you'll get to those soon enough, I know you too well not to know that..hehe

Oh Trina Leah.... Pregnancy and motherhood is difficult, in the house department and staying up with it all.

Take care of yourself first please. I love you Sis.

You are still feeling sick? Oh, I am SO sorry. I usually would get sick for the first couple on months, but I always knew by week 12 I would be better. Of course at that point I would go a little crazy on the onion rings and put on 40 pounds, but hey; Burger Kings everywhere LOVED me! (In my defense I did eat healthy besides my "little onion ring issue".)
I will pray for you! Pray that what ever your crazy pregnancy food is, you can soon enjoy every bite of it!!! ~Karlie
