Nausea.... Extreme Exhaustion....Heartburn......


You guessed it! We are PREGNANT!  I am now 9 weeks pregnant and definitely feeling it!  Macie will be a big sister sometime around April 20 and we are so excited! This pregnancy is definitely different than my first one and already proving itself to be full of "all the joys"....code for "miserable pregnancy symptoms"!  Don't get me wrong, the finished product is an AMAZING gift from the Lord, but I have to admit I am probably one of the WORST pregnancy patients out there.  I worry about every little pain or twinge, I wine about every symptom that comes about.....I just don't do pregnancy well!  We are not out of the danger zone yet, as far as the first trimester, so please pray that the Lord continues to keep our little one safe and allows him or her to continue developing strong.  We had an ultrasound done at 7 weeks and the baby looked great, measuring exactly like it should, and we also got to see and hear a strong heartbeat. Praise the Lord!  And of course, also pray for me, that I can make it through these next months without driving those around me, especially Jason, crazy:)
