Welcome to the family little one!

The past fourteen weeks have been some of the hardest weeks of my life. The main reason for the hardship being this....


This pregnancy has been VERY different from my first. And in different I mean harder. Maybe its because I have a two year old to chase around now. Maybe its because I am not really in a position to be resting right now. Or maybe just because it is. I have never felt so tired and run-down in my entire life. I hate to admit it, but Brooks has spent many a days in front of the television because I have absolutely zero energy to even get off the couch. My mood has been all over the place as well. You could probably use the word crazy when referring to my emotional state recently. It can be a little embarrassing at times. Add in the gross, disgusting, constant sick feeling and you have a pretty good idea of how I have been feeling as of late. I have a good friend that once said that pregnancy brings her to her knees more than anything else, and I have to say I completely agree. I have come to find out how reliant I am on my Heavenly Father's assistance. What would I do without him and his blessings? It probably sounds like I am an ungrateful complainer. The complaining part might be a little true, but I assure you that not a day goes by that I don't thank my Heavenly Father for being given the opportunity to bring another one of his choice spirits into my family. I love this baby so much already and look forward to seeing Brooks with a sibling. He will be such a great big brother!

Congrats! That's so excited!
I was so much like you, I think it's was so much harder the 2nd time around because we have a little child to still take care of.
Pregnancy is the best and hardest thing, but the end result makes it all worth it.
Good luck!

Oh Chelsie, I totally know the sick feeling you are talking about. When I had MS with Leni, I remember asking Chris how other women do it with toddlers running around? I don't know how you make it through, but I spent a good amount of time of my knees too :) Hang in there, I hope the sickness goes away soon!
