Sick Night

Last night at about one in the morning,
I woke myself up because I was crying in my sleep.

As I sat up to recognize my surroundings,
a wave of nausea came over me and I quickly laid back down.

Tyson was up, sitting next to me in a split second.
He asked me if I was okay.
I could hardly speak because I knew that if I did, I would throw up.

After taking a couple of minutes to breath,
I told him that I was feeling really sick.

"What can I get you?"
He asked me in the sweetest voice ever.

I just looked at him again, trying to catch my breath again...
and explained that I had heartburn.

He was up in a second
and came back almost immediately with Ginger ale and tums.

After taking a few sips of the ginger ale and popping a couple tums in my mouth,
the nausea began to subside.
While I laid down trying to fall back asleep, trying to ignore the want to puke,
Tyson laid down besided me,
and tickled my back until I fell asleep.

This wasn't the first time I've been sick.
I was sick before I even found out I was pregnant.
But it was probably the worst it's been.

I'm not complaining.
In fact,

Being sick is proving to me that I'm pregnant.
if I wasn't sick,
I think I'd be worried.

I'm SO GRATEFUL for this experience
I'm SO GRATEFUL for my husband.

I have an incredible husband.
Someone that is there for me when I need him.

When I was carrying Avery,
I didn't have someone to tickle my back as I tried to fall asleep after waking up sick.
I didn't have someone there for me to grab me tums, or something to help my nausea.

I did have Dustin and Andrea.
They were there for me as much as they could be,
and were SOO AMAZING with helping me with anything they could during the pregnancy.

but having a husband,
that can be there when I need something in the middle of the night,
That can help me when I'm sick,
that's how it should be.

I'm so so grateful for him.
I'm so grateful for this child.
I'm so grateful to the Lord for giving me them both.

I'm so grateful for Adoption.
For it tought me to be grateful.
I know for a fact that if I didn't experience Adoption,
I wouldn't appreciate these experiences,
the small things,
and being sick...

Like I should.

I blame Nuva Ring!! :)

This post is officially life changing.
This post may also be a little TMI for some,
but I have to include it all so that it's understandable.

let's go back to about June of this year.

I had been to my Doctor appointment and we had decided on the Nuva Ring for birth control,
I started it just a couple of weeks later.

At the beginning of August,
I took it out for my period,
a week later,
I replaced it with another one.

That week I began spotting.
That spotting turned in to bleeding.
That bleeding turned into..bleeding harder than even a normal period.

I began freaking out and called the Doctor on Call.

He told me to take out the nuva ring and he would call in something to stop the bleeding.

I went to take out the Nuva ring...and it wasn't there.

I called the Doctor back and he told me to make an appointment with my doctor as soon as I could.

When I went to the Doctor,
he told me that it probably fell out with the bleeding.


at this point,
it's a week before the wedding...
I discussed my options with the Doctor and he said that because it was so close, nothing would be very effective.

we decided that we would just use Condoms until I started my period again.
I would try the Nuva Ring again.

for the first month of our marriage,
we were going to use Condoms.

a whole month?
who were we kidding?

we pretty much decided to risk it for a month.

Yesterday morning,
before I went to work,
I took a pregnancy test.

Here was the result:

My reaction was not how I expected it to be.
I started smiling and I couldn't stop!
(I was expecting more of a HOLY CRAP THAT WAS FAST reaction ;))

It was 5:30 in the morning,
but I didn't care.
I ran in to Tyson and and woke him up and made him see it for himself.

After that,
I couldn't stay with him.
I had to go to work!!

The whole day at work was crazy!
I couldn't concentrate and all I could think of was how we were going to tell our parents!

After much help from my co-workers,
we decided to give them a bouquet of flowers, with a card with baby footprints on them,
saying congratulations Grandma and Grandpa!
and then the pregnancy test.

It worked out pretty well!!

We recorded it,
but for some reason, my computer won't accept the memory card it's on.
Hopefully I'll figure it out eventually.

The point of the story,

Can you believe it??
We hardly can!!

According to the 'due date finder' or whatever it's called,
(I got it as a gift when I was pregnant with Avery,)
We are due May 30th!

I honestly don't think it's hit me yet.
We found out we were pregnant on our one month anniversary....!!!

I have completely abandoned my blog lately.
I have hardly had any time so, my apologies!! :D

So we've been married for almost a month
and it only feels like a week!!

We have been so incredibely blessed through all of this and I really don't know how I'm going to thank everyone.

We weren't sure how we were going to afford everything we needed for our house,
but after the wedding we discovered that we didn't need to purchase ANYTHING that we needed.

It's amazing how generous people are and I am SO GRATEFUL!

We are currently looking for a house.
Right now we're living in an apartment,
and feel like we're just throwing our money away!

So we'll see how this all plays out.
I will update soon with pictures from the wedding!
