The last week of our trip to Utah this summer I missed my period. I told Brad, but he kind of just gave me a look and ignored me lol (sad but true). After a week of being home (so 2 weeks late) I decided one morning to take a test. I knew Brad would be annoyed because we kind of decided not to do that anymore and to just wait things out a little bit longer, but I decided to take it anyway ( I mean really I waited two weeks)...It was a solid dark line and immediately I was filled with a thousand different emotions again. I went downstairs and told Brad at breakfast and he just gave me a look and said.."I thought we agreed not to do that," then we didn't talk about it again for a while. haha I know this probably sounds sad to read, but its our reality and I guess I just want to remember it all. We had scheduled our trip to Waco that weekend and while we were there is when I started to feel sick (about 6 weeks pregnant).
The day we got home is the first day I threw up and from that day on I pretty much threw up a few times a day until I was 14 weeks pregnant. Its slowed down since then, but Im still sick some mornings. It probably sounds horrible and it was, but at the same time it was a tender mercy. I just kept thinking, there is no way I can feel this crappy and not have a human growing inside me. Brad would smile every time I came out of the bathroom and say something like "thats good, I'm glad the baby is growing." haha it was a strange few months of laying of the couch, letting Jaxon watch endless movies, and eating crazy amounts of fast food because nothing in our house seemed to sit well with my stomach. One night I made a shopping list for Brad of everything I thought i could eat...it included things like, puff Cheetos, jolly ranchers, and hot pockets. after a few days all the junk food he bought for me was the most disgusting thing I had ever seen. It was a vicious cycle.
