Missing in action...

I noticed the other day I have been very lazy with my posting and I realize it's because I haven't really been cooking or eating. I stopped taking my steroids about two weeks ago and I noticed a dramatic loss in my appetite and it seems to have gotten worse over the past week or so. I thought maybe it was because of this cold that I have been fighting or the fact my body is recovering from all of the cravings I had while taking the steroids.

Nope none of the above, it's because I am so nausea's I can't see straight and would you like to know why I am so nausea's I can't see straight...it's because I am going to be a Mommy and this time it's only going to have two legs instead of four. I always swore that when and if I became pregnant I wouldn't share the news with anyone other than my husband and our parents until I hit the second trimester due to the fact my pregnancies will be high risk due to the Crohns disease. I decided that 1) I couldn't keep my mouth shut that long, and 2.) I need all of the prayers and good thoughts I can get. I pray that my body doesn't fail me or this baby. I am very nervous now since the procedures that were planned to determine whether or not my gall bladder needed to come out have been canceled due to the risk involved. I don't know what we are going to do but I keep saying, "I am going to take everything one day at a time".

As of right now baby Blankenship will be making their appearance around February 18th 2010, let's keep our fingers crossed we get to that point!!

I had problems with my gall bladder aswell and they took it out a few months after having my first son.

How wonderful for you and your husband! Congratulations, I'm so happy for you! I'll be sending you positive thoughts for a smooth pregnancy.

If you're anything like me, you'll get past the nausea and be ravenous all the time. I didn't have any particular cravings while I was pregnant with either of my kids, but I did have aversions. I could't stand the look, taste or smell of chicken with my first pregnancy. Weird, because I normally love chicken.
