       The first trimester is miserable. I have constant feelings of nausea for the majority of the day but can't throw up (unless I make myself throw up). My new food aversion...those egg, melted cheese, and sausage sandwiches. I can't even think about it, let alone smell it or see it (even if its wrapped). Meats are also something I can't eat much of. My energy? It's non-existent. Making my responsibilities difficult to do. Man, who knew something the size of a blueberry could make you feel so sick. I've missed some of my classes quite a bit which is highly unlikely of me, and work (even though it's only two hours a day) is a drag. All I want to do is eat kiwis and strawberries and lay on my couch all day.  I can't wait until this trimester ends. All I can say is thank goodness for Kyle. He has been such a patient and helpful husband. He always makes sure I'm comfortable and happy. He even holds my hair back and rubs my back when I'm throwing up (until I told him to stop cause I didn't want him to see). Now he just waits outside the bathroom with a hug ready for me.  He helps me around the house with dinner and cleaning when I don't have the energy or strength to do so. Another reason why he's the best. Maybe I should invest in those SeaBands my classmate was telling me about....that would be very helpful.

This is how I feel like...

Being Pregnant

      It's such a wonderful feeling, knowing there is life inside of you. It's incredible to think of how a human being is created from two tiny individual cells. How organs, veins, blood, muscle, and bone are formed from those two tiny cells that by themselves cannot serve its purpose. How everything functions correctly and how the women's body is able to carry and stretch to accommodate this growing human being. It's so fascinating to us!! As we talk about and contemplate how incredible it is, our testimony is strengthened of our loving Heavenly Father. That He is real and that He loves us so much that he has entrusted us with the ability to create life and house His spirit children to experience joy and happiness. To become more like Him and be a family forever. That is the purpose of life. It's an eternal truth. The Family is central to Heavenly Fathers plan of Happiness for us. This process of creating life is definitely not an accident.  It's amazing, it's beautiful, and it's the reason we are here on this earth. I am so humbled by this knowledge and the power of our Heavenly Father. I thank Him everyday for blessing us with this beautiful opportunity to be parents and have a child who will continue and strengthen our joy. For allowing our little family to grow. We are thrilled to have the opportunity of raising these special children.  It's going to be tough, but it's going to be worth it :)

"Our most important and powerful assignments are in the family. They are important because the family has the opportunity at the start of a child’s life to put feet firmly on the path home.”
