Between the pregnancy and the Lupus it seems like the specialists and doctors are constantly poking me or making me pee in little cups! I'm exhausted in case you're wondering! I am aware of how worth it all this will be in February when Kevin and I get to meet the little life we've created.
Seeing that tiny heart beat on the fetal monitor had to be the most surreal moment of my entire life.
In the last couple years we had slowly become aware and content with the fact we may never conceive. So of course when that test showed two pink lines we were shocked! Shock quickly turned to excitement.
It wasn't long before my body was letting me know this indeed was all for real!
I simply could not have gotten through the past few weeks without Kevin my by side. He has mad sure I'm eating and drinking enough to sustain myself and mini McGavin! He has driven me to all my appointments and held by hand when I'm terrified. He currently is off getting me my prescription to hopefully stop the constant puking! He's been pretty amazing and I wouldn't want to be on this adventure with anyone else.
I never dreamed pregnancy would be so physically and mentally exhausting. I never thought I'd be one of the unlucky who had morning sickness all day long! I never imagined my body would change so quickly!
When I think about the changes coming to our life and our little family I'm excited. I can't wait to dress my little crouton up for Halloween! To bake cupcakes for holidays and parties! To teach our little one all about life.
I can't believe were I am today and all the places my life has taken me in the past. For one second I would not trade what I have today for anything. Everything happens for a reason and when it all makes sense the overwhelming sense of clarity is amazing.
