How is it...

How is it that I can remember rather vividly the pain of childbirth, but I so easily forget how miserable the first trimester is?

The memories have flooded back.

I was secretly wondering, but did not ask. Worth it all!!!

Somehow, I forget the whole thing.(supposing the drugs that I reluctantly admit to accepting in the heat of the moment help with that considering your vivid memories of the pain of birth) Nothing seems vivid except that moment when that brand new life is in your arms for the first time. Hold that in the forefront of your mind...hang in there!

awwww....poor you!!!!! hang in there!! it will all be so well-worth it when you see that tiny little precious face and hold that sweeet cuddly little gift from God in your arms in just a few (ok 9) months! (easy for me to say when i'm not the one that's feeling nauseous....i know....)

Try and remember how much better you will feel around the 10th 12th week.
I remember everyone telling me that the worse I was feeling, the stronger the pregnancy was. It wasn't very comforting at the time.

My best advice would be to get as much sleep as possible but, I know that won't be easy.

You are in my prayers. Hang in there.

Lord, give Angela a supernatural dose of TUMS and multiply her sleep minutes. And Lord, help the kids be extra good....especially in the morning! Amen.
