An Unpleasant Reminder

It was one year ago today that morning sickness overtook my life and wouldn't you know I came down with the stomach flu yesterday. It has been an unpleasant reminder of why we aren't having any more children. After Julia was born I started thinking that we should maybe have one more, but the thought of feeling this way for months has me wanting to slap myself silly for even allowing the thought of another pregnancy to enter my mind. Brian took care of Sam almost the entire month of February 2006. I was so sick I barely could get out of bed to participate in Sam's bedtime routine. Brian changed every diaper for a month (except those changed by Auntie Sharon, Grandma Gayle, and Grandma Rena) . I was hospitalized 4 times and lost 15 pounds. The scariest part of the whole ordeal was having to take medicines that hadn't been tested on pregnant women before. We spent lots of time praying for a healthy baby and God answered our prayers. Julia is a beautiful and healthy gift from Heaven. Thank you to all who prayed for us during my difficult pregnancy.

  1. I still can't believe you survived Julia's pregnancy. How worth it she finally was! I can't blame you for not wanting to go through that again. So sorry you're sick (we did see your boys at the CCC) and having flashbacks of that difficult time. Feel better!:)
