Still Waiting

We have our next doctor's appointment on Wednesday. The heartbeat should be strong enough now to hear with out the sonogram. The baby is still letting us know that they are in there, but I think the morning sickness should start to get better within the next couple weeks. The funny thing is, I'm showing now, almost as much as another girl at work was at 22 weeks. I have a feeling that I will be carrying the baby right out front, like my mom did with us. So far, I still haven't gained weight. I'm sure that more than enough will come in the next few months. Right now I am avoiding the cooking chicken smell coming from the kitchen.....

I now truly understand cravings and morning sickness. Cravings are stronger than that female 'need' for a pint of Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream. Last night, I had to have a chili dog. Contrast that to this morning when I had to choke down a bland breakfast bar and a couple crackers. And, as most women who have been pregnant know, morning sickness can strike anytime of the day. Currently, my food aversions are anything with tomatoes and chocolate. Strange, as I love chocolate with an undying passion. Or, what I thought was undying. This too shall pass. I try to think of the cravings and sickness as God's little reminder that I have a great responsibility to this little life.

Happy July 4th

I'm so thankful for our freedom in this country. I can't imagine not having rights. Especially rights to pray, worship, and believe in God. I think of the children my parent's church has brought over from Russia, some who have never heard God's name. How blessed we are!
