Epic Fail

I'm 14 weeks today. Though it's been a lifetime since I got pregnant, in reality it's moving right along.

I went to the OB last week. He did an ultra sound. I'm spot on for my due date. I need to remember that when I have a later u/s and my dates get moved up. It always happens and I convince myself I'm due earlier and start to get anxious. I'm getting another one on the 31st. Technically I'll be far enough along to find out the sex. The docs machine is old and fuzzy so I'm not counting on it, but am hoping for all I'm worth. I hate the wait. It kills me every time. I'm feeling like it might be a girl. Leave me a comment and let me know what YOU think it is.

As for the title of this post.....if I'm supposed to give my fertility to the Lord, and if this pregnancy could be considered a test of my faith, then I'm afraid it is going to be an epic fail of epic proportions. I. Am. Struggling. My family is paying the price. My poor husband is paying the price in a multitude of ways. If September cant get here fast enough for me, then I wouldn't be surprised to find out he's secretly building a time machine. I won't lie and say he's got the patience of Job, but he's ranking somewhere in the vicinity. Seven is a nice round even number, right? Just lie to me. It will be OK if you do. I PROMISE. And I can do that. Cause it's my blog and all.

13 weeks

Time is going by. If you force me to tell you the truth, then I guess I will admit that time is going rather quickly. Despite the feeling that I'm never going to get better, it's going quickly.

A recap of why I'm surprised it feels to be moving right along:

Week 5- started bleeding and cramping, got strep throat
Week 6- was no longer able to function. Stayed in bed all day. All. Day.
Week 7- see week six
Week 8- see week six and seven but add to it throwing up daily
Week 9- more of the last three weeks
Week 10- started to function more daily but still feeling horrid. Add to that sick children and a teething baby
Week 11- start of an UTI.
Week 12- onset of major UTI resulting on a trip to the ER.

So as you can plainly see, life has been awful this year.

I'm praying it's not a prelude to how life is going to pan out the rest of the year. Especially since we're making MAJOR life changing decisions. MAJOR. And I PRAY this pregnancy isn't any indication as to what might be growing inside. Heaven help us if it is.

I went to the doctor for the first time. Everything looks good. Baby is growing nicely. ONE baby is growing nicely. Whew. For a minute I wanted there to be two babies in there but that was just for a minute.
