9 Weeks

I still can't believe we are pregnant!! :) Our due date is April 7, 2010. It has been a long road to get to this point. But after 3 and 1/2 years God chose to bless us with another baby. I am truly thankful and absolutely amazed at His perfect timing.

Let me tell you though...

This pregnancy has already been totally different than my last! I think I got sick once while being pregnant with Andon. And with this one, I have been sick for the last 4 weeks!! It has been so hard. Not only dealing with the nausea and vomiting I also got a sinus infection and a chest cold. And then after taking a walk one evening last week I returned home and blood just started pouring out of me (sorry if that makes anyone sick) but it was pretty scary. We headed to the hospital and found out (after waiting for 6 hours) that I had a small tear in the uterus. The baby was totally fine. They said I should be on bed rest for a week or so to let it heal. Needless to say my sweet husband has been doing everything around here. I am SO thankful for him. He cooked, cleaned, grocery shopped, took care of me and Andon and all the while worked.

But the great news is that I have been feeling somewhat better the last 2 days! I even cooked dinner last night which was so nice. I actually miss cooking. weird. I have been taking Zofran and it really helps! I don't really feel normal but I feel like I can start to do things again. I had an appointment with my Dr. yesterday and she said the tear looks good and hopefully will just continue to heal itself.

Now that I am feeling better I plan to update the blog a bit more frequently. Please pray that I stay feeling better. I hope this isn't a little fluke!! :) Either way we are so thrilled.

And thank you all for the sweet comments on Jared's last post. I just loved reading every single one of them. I know so many of you have cried with me and prayed for me over the last few years and I am so thankful for you.

Love, Jen

I love Amanda! I have been dying to know more too! I sure wonder if there is a little girl in your belly?! Don't they say you can sometimes be more sick with girls...all the hormones, etc! :) I am glad your tear is healing and you have such a capable husband!! I am still so excited for you! God does have perfect timing! I will have to call you soon. Take care! Love ya, Christie

I'm glad you are feeling better. I miss you so much. I wish we were homeschooling next to each other! We would have had so much fun doing that... not sure that much would get accomplished, but it would've been fun :)
