Pregnancy Update

Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and healing prayers. I really do appreciate it.

I’m almost 12 weeks along and still suffering from severe morning sickness. It’s so bad that sometimes I can barely get out of bed in the morning. It almost feels like I’m not living but just trying to survive through each day. Pretty sad, huh? I try to remember that this is all a good thing but when you’re sick every single waking moment of the day, it sometimes gets hard to focus on the positive, you know?

But I just wanted to let you know that I’m still here even though posting is not quite what it usually is.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebration!

    hugs! Hopefully you will feel better soon! Anything w/ginger may help. =D

  3. Gattina says:

    Poor girl, hope it will stop soon. I belonged to the lucky women who never were sick. It must be awful.

  4. Elizabeth says:

    oh sweetie, I’m so sorry. I hope the sickness passes soon so you can get out of bed :(


  5. Rechelle says:

    so sorry to hear you’re still fighting this – that has to be tough and exhausting- praying for relief for you-

  6. Pamela Kramer says:

    You just rest and eat lots of crackers. :)

  7. Angie (Losing It and Loving It) says:

    So sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. Sending big hugs your way.

  8. Qtpies7 says:

    You are almost there! I know how you feel, and it is sort of like life stopped but you are still moving in slow motion through the most miserable time in your life, lol.
    Seriously, I don’t think time ever moves as slowly as when you are that sick for that long.

    You will be through this in no time, though!

  9. Hayley says:

    Hope you feel better soon! Sounds like we are about the same in our pregnancy! :) Good luck!

  10. diana/sunshine says:

    doesn’t sound fun. hope the second trimester is better for you.

    were the first two pregnancies this way?

  11. Shannon says:

    I hope you start feeling better soon. Morning sickness is no fun (especially when you have other little ones to take care of).

  12. Renee says:

    Hugs! Did you say this goes on for you the entire pregnancy? I sure hope not. Sometimes I wonder about the “logic” of being so sick during pregnancy.

    I’m glad that you’re so determined to tough this out. I know it will be worth it.

  13. Kate @bunchablueeyedmonkeys says:

    Get better!

  14. Sues2u2 says:

    I’m sorry about the extreme version of morning sickness you get. That is the pits! I am, however, so happy for you that you & this new little one are doing well otherwise.

    I do sincerely hope that this part of the pregnancy passes quickly!

  15. Dee says:

    I’m sorry you’re so sick!! I hope you get some relief soon with the second trimester!

  16. Elizabeth says:

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it doesn’t last too long!!

  17. Dee says:

    you hang in there! thinking about you!

  18. Andrea McMann says:

    Hang in there! I know how awful you must feel! I had horrible morning sickness with my daughter. You should start feeling better very soon! :)

  19. AmyG says:

    I hope the morning sickness subsides, soon!!

  20. Jill says:

    Ugh! I’m so sorry this has been so difficult for you. Hopefully you’ll be done with the worst of it soon and you’ll get to bask in your pregnant glow! Thinking of you and hoping the Easter bunny brought you lots of ginger ale and Saltines :-)

  21. Ruth says:

    If it’s any consolation, they say the higher degree of hormones, the more morning sickness, but the healthier the baby . . . if that helps at all!

  22. JamericanSpice says:

    I hope you will get past this phase of morning sickness soon and be able to enjoy your pregnancy.

    I also hope you have as much help as possible so you can just relax as much as possible for now.

  23. Naomi says:

    I hope you feel better soon!

  24. Mandee says:

    It really is hard to stay focused on the positive when feeling so yucky!! Hopefully it will all pass really soon!

  25. Stephanie says:

    I hope you feel better very soon.

  26. Desert Songbird says:

    And it seems to get more difficult as you get older, too, doesn’t it? Take it easy; a healthy and safe delivery is the most important thing.

    Oh, and just surviving the day? Believe me, I can relate. Some days, it’s not easy having a chronic condition.

  27. Jamie says:

    Glad to hear things are going OK…hope the morning sickness subsides soon!

  28. Claudia Franson says:

    I know it’s not easy but try to make yourself eat some cereal or crackers when you get up. It really does make the morning sickness go away for the day faster.

  29. Tiff@ThreePeas says:

    Your almost through the worst of it. I have been there witht he severe Morning sickness. I spent every other week my first twelve weeks in the hospital. Take it one day at a time, small meals, carry lots of salty food in your purse.

  30. valmg says:

    Hang in there lady! I hope you’re feeling better soon.

  31. Emily says:

    Sorry to hear you’re still feeling sick- here’s hoping it fades soon.

    Happy (belated) Easter!

  32. Jen E @ mommablogsalot says:

    Sounds much like my first trimesters – aka no fun! But worth it in the end. :) Hang in there!

  33. pamela says:

    Yours sounds like mine was but after that first trimester you should start feeling a better, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. The reward in the end makes all this worth it.

  34. *Just Jen* says:

    Awwww, I hope you start to feel better soon! My prayers and thoughts are with you!

  35. Rebekeh says:

    I really don’t think it is fair to have “morning sickness” at every waking minute of the day! My last pregnancy I was sick the WHOLE time. I feel for you! And I hope you are better after the first trimester is over! I am happy you are pregnant again!

  36. HeatherY says:

    I hope you feel better soon! It can’t be easy to be that severely ill and attempt to get through your day.

  37. Natalie says:

    Feel better soon! I am sure the end result will be more than worth it :)

  38. joelyne says:

    wow, i can’t imagine what it would be like. if i ever get sick for just one day i can’t stand it. for you to be going through it all the time, i must say you’re doing very well and you’re an inspiration to all us hopeful future mums :) my prayers go out to you. love joelyne xxx

  39. Asianmommy says:

    Hope you feel better soon!

  40. Ginny says:

    I had 2 bad pregnancies myself. Hope you feel better soon!

  41. turnitupmom says:

    I had an awful first four months. I feel your pain. It must be a girl…only a girl would torture you like that!! Feel good soon.

  42. Sweet Serendipity says:

    So sorry to hear you are having a rough go of it. Hope you are feeling better soon! I remember having to eat peanut butter about every hour, lol.
    Best wishes and congratulations!

  43. gomomyourock says:

    Hoping you feel perky in no time! Congrats!

  44. Krista says:

    I’m so sorry you are having such a rough time! Here’s hoping it gets better soon now that you’re pretty much done with the 1st trimester!

  45. Mozi Esmes Mommy says:

    I’m so sorry! Hang in there…

  46. Grace @ Sandier Pastures says:

    I hope science can find some way to stop this from happening. You are pregnant and suffering from it!

    I hope you feel better soon, Kailani. I hope all that awful feeling stops when you start the second trimester!

  47. Summer says:

    I hope it lets up soon!

  48. Pamela says:

    It has been 28 years since my youngest, and I still haven’t forgotten how horrible I felt.

    In a way it is good news that you feel horrible, tho — it assures me that things are perking along like a little coffee pot.

  49. Holly Schwendiman says:

    Sending happy thoughts and well wishes for a quick end to the morning sickness!


  50. Deborah at Coco Bonbons says:

    Hang in there. I know it’s tough. One day at a time.

  51. BlapherMJ says:

    Each day that passes brings you one day closer to your new little one! Hang in there – you’ll make it!

  52. Bethany says:

    I hope you get over the morning sickness soon! I’m glad everything is going well with the pregnancy! :)

  53. Twisted Cinderella says:

    I hope you get some relief soon. Congrats on your pg!

  54. Amanda says:

    I had hyperemesis during both my pregnancies, so I can empathize. It is hard to focus on the positive when you feel so icky. Try to hang in there.

  55. Rach (Heart of Rachel) says:

    I had bouts of morning sickness too when I was pregnant with my son.

    I hope that the phase will be over soon. May you have a safe and healthy pregnancy. God bless.

  56. Janet F says:

    I hope you feel better soon.(((Hugs)))

  57. ciara says:

    i had morning sickness w both my girls…not as bad as yours from the sound of it, but the word ‘food’ would make me nauseous. :-/ glad to see everything is going well. just take it easy. you know even if your posts are infrequent, we are all still here :)

  58. Christi says:

    obviously I’m behind in the times! Congrats!! This graduate school stuff keeps getting in the way of my blog reading!
