Light at the End of the Tunnel

We have made it to the final few days! Thank you to everyone who has stood by us through this long journey! We appreciate all your prayers, help, and encouragement.

I am still dealing with some symptoms of the HG. Though the last 2 weeks I have been able to finally reduce my Zofran and today took my last one. Hopefully I won’t need a refill. The dizziness is still quite present, sometimes accompanied by faintness.

I’m looking forward to getting back to normal. We know I will have some recovery time from the C-section, but it will be a piece of cake compared to HG. I keep thinking of all the things I will be able to do again. Scrub the bathrooms is one that I am most excited about. Cooking with chicken or other raw foods, going to more than one store. And most of all being the wife and mother I used to be!


We are so ready to meet this little blessing. God has brought us a long way as a family and individually.

Zack is finally getting excited to meet “his baby”. He has been snuggling baby clothes this week. Sometimes he stops playing to give the baby a kiss or lay his head on my belly. He jumps and gets this silly surprised look every time the baby moves. It’s so cute. 🙂  

I will be sure to share our little one with you all once baby is here!!


Zack’s back

My Little Moose came home on Saturday! 🙂 It is a lot easier to let him stay with grandparents when it’s so that Jason and I can have a night away. When it’s because I can not care for him, it’s a lot harder. I called to check on him so many times! The nice part was that he was happy to talk to me (or at least listen to me talk to him).

Zack did good while he was with grandpa and grandma. He did have a rough time once he came home though. He spent Saturday night and Sunday clinging to mommy or daddy and lots of tears. Jason had to work Sunday so it was just Zack and I for church. Oh wow! He fought me for 40 minutes over putting on pants! I was exhausted, but I had to follow through and make him put them on. We didn’t make it to the 9:30 service and I thought if we snuggled for a bit we could maybe make it at 11:00. I was so wrong!! We made it to the car that time, but with so much screaming we didn’t even get to the church parking lot.

Zack was so upset he wouldn’t get out of the carseat and kept crying for mommy to hold him. I scooped him out like a baby and could feel his body relax in my arms. He stopped crying, looked at me, and said “mommy has Zack”. We laid on the couch and snuggled instead of church.

Our little boy definitely needs some security right now.
