January.....Blah Blah Blah

So sorry for the absence but January has been a really odd month for me.

The week before Christmas I found out that I was pregnant. Needless to say it was a surprise. We told our immediate family on Christmas Day and everyone was ecstatic! Sammy and I have been married for 10 years so I'm pretty sure our parents had given up on us ever having them any grandchildren. Everyone asked me had I been sick. I said no, that I had been really lucky.  I should have NEVER said that! The day after Christmas I woke up so sick and it has continued through the whole month of January. It wouldn't have been so bad but the morning sickness seems to last all day and then about 10:00 at night I start feeling awesome and am ready to conquer the world.The nausea was so bad that some days I couldn't even get off the couch. I tried every old wives tale and got tons of advice from new mothers but nothing I try seems to work. I finally had to resort to take a medication that seems to help but knocks me out for hours at a time. Sammy has been a champ through all of it. He has treated me like a queen and has really picked up the slack at the shop. I wasn't able to come to work but about 4 or 5 days the whole month of January so you can imagine at this point how far behind I am on everything.

Then this past Thursday rolled around. I started to feel more sluggish than normal. Should have known at that point something was wrong. I woke up at 5:00am on Friday so sick. I was throwing up everything. I couldn't even keep water down. The Dr called me in something and it helped me feel a little better. Saturday I woke up feeling like a champ. I got up and washed everything in the house that could be washed and Lysoled the whole house hoping that Sammy wouldn't get the virus. I swear I wouldn't wish that stomach virus on my worst enemy. Then Sunday morning about 3:00am I woke up sick again and I was so weak I couldn't hardly walk. Sammy woke up about 5:00 and took me to the ER. They pumped me full of fluids, took blood, gave me something to help me rest, and did an ultrasound to make sure the baby was OK. I haven't had an ultrasound at the Dr's office yet so this would be the first time that we would be able to see our baby. It was the most amazing experience to see that little life form. Up until then I don't think that the fact that I was pregnant felt real to me. I am look forward to the end of January. I'm hoping that with the end of January comes the end of sickness.

 If it's the Lord will then Baby Dale will make an appearance in August. We are trying our best to keep all the videos and tutorials on track but we may hit some bumps in the road. I just ask that everyone be patient with us as Sammy and I go through this new phase of our lives.

Oh sweetie! I'm so very excited for you both! We were married 9 years before I got pregnant, but mine was due to infertility issues. You have a wonderful husband who has shown that he is going to be a great daddy too. I will definitely keep you in my prayers, and look forward to seeing videos.

I'm so very happy for you and Sammy! You think that you know love now but when baby Dale arrives, you will know a love like none other before or after! I hope the rest of your pregnancy is smooth sailing. I feel your pain, I was sick every single day of my pregnancy; including during my c-section that had to be paused while I barfed! I hope it's not the same for you! I will say it was worth it. Sending prayers for a healthy baby and safe delivery! What a blessing the Lord has bestowed upon you! Big love from Texas!

Jennifer McGee said...

Congratulations. I hope that your pregnancy sickness wears off as your little one grows.

CarrieB said...

Yay! So exciting! My mom and dad waited 5 years for a child,
which doesn't seem like a lot, but my mom was 41, almost 42 when she had me.
I like to say I was a happy accident. They had decided that it just wasn't in the cards
for them to be parents and then TA-DA! there I was!
Can't wait to hear all about Baby Dale. Hope you get through the lovely sickness that
goes along with creating life.

I just recently started becoming a big follower of your videos and work. I'm very excited for your little growing family, may God bless your new journey.

Maryp said...

I just have to say how very happy I am for you both and pray for all to be safe and happy. I must say that over the past year I broke both of my arms and was home from work for 5 weeks. In those weeks I watched your videos and learned how to bead which was also a great therapeutic tool to keep my arms moving and at the same time produce amazing pieces all thanks to you Kelly. There were some days that depression took over but once I saw and heard your calming voice filled with blessings and prayers, I became happy again. Your baby is so lucky to be blessed with you and Sammy as you will make awesome parents. Keep your spirits high and don't loose your inner goddess of beading. All the very best from Mary and Joe (my husband), we have been married for 7 years with no luck of babies, but we try. Anyway i can't wait to see more videos. Blessings to you and your family.

Congratulations to you and Sammy! Funny, I had noticed that your energy level was different in the last couple of weeks videos; I was worried about you! How exciting is your coming adventure into parenthood.

Be Well and be Blessed

Congratulations! Very happy for you and your family. I hope the nausea stage is over for you now; how awful to have flu on top of it. As others have said, no worries if you need to cut back the video schedule, everyone will understand. Even for those of us who only know you through your videos, you feel like family. Big hugs.
