Whining and Complaining

No cute pictures of Easton today. Today I'm taking a moment to complain about Eve. She messed up and part of her punishment was travail in childbirth. Did that really have to extend to the rest of us?? So many think this just means labor. Honestly labor really wasn't all that bad, and that is without an epideral. It's the prelabor part I'm whining about today. This morning I woke up feeling especially sick and I've been moping about it since I got out of bed. I know I was sick when I was pregnant the first time, but the puking didn't start till almost the 8th week. I was less than 6 weeks when it began with this one, and it has been going full force ever since. The last few days I have thrown up everything that has gone into my mouth within minutes of eating or drinking it. I'm very tired of looking into my toilet bowl. And I'm very tired of feeling sick to my stomach all day every day. I hate to be "that" preganant lady. You know the one...the one who looks completely miserable all the time, the one who moans and groans with every movement, the one who will talk your ear off about every little ache and pain, the one who got the pregnancy waddle the day they took the home pregnancy test...that one! I don't want to be her, but today I see "that" lady's face in my mirror (gasp!!) Where did she come from? Why am I being sucked into that temptation to complain? Well, to all my friends out there who will be spending the next few months around me I promise I will try my hardest not to continue being THAT preganant lady. But today, just for a moment I am her. I am whining and complaining and wishing I was one of those lucky women who never felt the pain of morning sickness. But now I say good-bye to the grouch and hello to the one who knows that no matter what the end result is completely worth it. I can't look at my son who is already here and think anything else!

honey, you're better than me. I can't stand to throw up and doing it multiple times a day would just send me over the edge ha ha. I feel for you and would complain for you too! If I was as sick as you were with Easton, it would've taken a lot of coaxing to have another one. You're allowed to be a grouch here and there.

First off, you're SO NOT "that" lady!! LOL!! Oh man, if "that" lady were what you are now... Well I'd better not finish my thoughts. =)
I am so sorry you are so sick! I really hope that this full force sickness means that it will be all out of your system in a few more weeks. And yes, the end result does make it all worth it, although I can't speak from experience (sickness). Hang in there! Praying for you!

Poor mommy! When you lean over the toliet bowl, just picture your new little bundle of joy... oh wait, that would be alittle weird. Sorry you are so sick agian. I think we all get some sort of "hard" part with pregancy and this is yours. It's not easy growing a human inside of you! Good luck, lots of love and prayers. And congratulations again, it's so exciting!

I think it is another boy. I was the sickest with my boys. Let's just add insult to injury. Hope you feel better soon.
