SICK OF BEING SICK!!!

I am SO over this whole morning sickness thing. It would be one thing if it was only in the morning... But NO... All day? Ugh.... McKay says that I am complaining less so I must be feeling better. Rather, the truth is that I am just starting to accept it as part of my current "normal" life. And hey - I am tired of hearing myself complain! Ha! :)
The kids are so funny about it. Bella is ready to dis-include me from all family functions and activities because in her words "She's STILL sick." Today was a prized day as we all (Cole, Bella and I) took a nap! My kids are way beyond the napping stage so it is a rare treat when they fall asleep in the car and transfer to the house still zonked. So grateful for those times! I got a whole two hours - YAY! Cole woke up and was hollering at me from his bed in the next room.

Cole: "Mom?! Mom?!"
Me: "Yes?"
Cole: "Where are you? Are you in you bed?"
Me: "Yes."
Cole: "Mom - it is NOT night time! Yook (look -can't say his Ls just yet) outside."
Me: "I know Coley. Mommy just doesn't feel good. My tummy is sick."
Cole: "Mooooommmm! Get up!" (And in the most annoyed tone you can imagine...) "Get some food!"

He thinks he has it all figured out. Hee hee... He is so cute. I feel bad that he is getting annoyed - believe me, if I could change it I would! I have all sorts of new found sympathy for the mothers that get so sick during pregnancy. I have always felt bad for you, but now I have true empathy. Not sure how you do it over and over again.... I know that they say you forget, but fat chance I will! Yuck! You ladies are amazing... Mom, Kate, Shelb and Becky - you are my heroes! Thanks so much for your loving phone calls and all the offers to help. I have the sweetest friends and family. Loves to all...

Steph,

Honey-I just can't imagine what you're feeling! What does sick mean when you're pregnant? I don't know. I hope I never do. You have too much on your plate. Come end of May you can check one BIG item off your list. hooray!

I love you and am here for you always.

Loves,

Lisanne

I am sorry to hear you are sick! I hope it will pass soon..how many weeks are you? Have you tried any meds.? I hear half a unisom at night before bed takes the edge off, but I am sure you know about it and your sickness is probably too much for it. Get better soon!

Oh yuck! I am SO sorry...there is nothing quite like pregnancy sickness--it is the worst! I hope you start feeling better soon! It's amazing how much we sacrifice for our sweet children before they are even born!! But it's all worth it in the end!!

Broadbent Family said...

Steph, I'm so sorry you have been sick! There is nothing like pregnancy sickness! Ugh. It will be so worth it thought--your kids are so stinking cute! I love the little conversation with Cole. You are such a darling mom...what we do to get these kids here!! Love you Steph! I missed seeing you at book club! It's stupid that it takes book club to get together!

Hello, Christensen's! I ran into your blog when I found Steve and Katie's...this is Nicole Madsen, married to Matt of the "Clovis Madsen's." Old friends! I believe we met this summer at Tiffany's wedding reception in CA.

Love your blog! You are your family are adorable! I added a link to you on our blog - hope you don't mind...it's great to keep in touch with old friends (and make new ones!)

Sandgren Family said...

I'm sorry you still feel so crappy. Please let me know whatever you need help with!!!!
Cole is so funny. His comments crack me up. He's just like every other man. No sympathy and they think they've got the answer. :-)
Hang in there!
