hop aboard the struggle bus

I swear I haven’t abandoned this blog, you guys…though I’ve felt like abandoning everything lately.

You know, despite the occasional bout of grossness, I was doing fine up until about a week ago.

Lately, however, morning sickness and this baby are just kicking my ass three ways from Sunday.

If it’s not heartburn, it’s constant nausea…

and if it’s neither of those, it’s migraines that literally shut me down.


^^^ my happy place


Pretty much the only place I can find relief right now is in water.

I take about 3-4 baths a day, which dries my skin out like no other, but I swear it’s sweet relief.

Swimming has also been helping,

but the second I get out, all my symptoms are back.


My poor husband…

he’s lucky if I put on yoga pants these days.

I truly consider that “dressed up” because I’m just so dang uncomfortable.

I’ve also found that I have these weird phantom pains at night that make me literally whimper if he touches me.


I have  my first OB appointment on Monday,

and I’m really looking forward to finding out what drugs I can take.

Yes. That is really what I’m most excited about right now, and I’m not ashamed.


In other news, after four months on the wait list, my ipsy subscription finally went through.

I’m looking forward to seeing all these beauty products I’ll have no desire to use for a while.


I know this baby is a miracle,

but right now, I wish this miracle would just be a little nicer to its momma.
