A Busy Few Months

Hello all!

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted…Lee’s surgery went very well, and he’s healing up just fine. He was home for seven weeks, so life’s was very interesting around here for a while, LOL. We’re still trying to repay his employer for covering the cost of our health insurance for those seven weeks – two more weeks to go and that will be payed back (thank God!), then we can try to get back to a normal life – until the baby comes!

Speaking of the baby, here’s the most recent ultrasound…


I’ll tell ya something too – this kid is so active I’m wondering if he ever sleeps and how much bigger he is than Connor – I wasn’t anywhere near as big as I am now when I was pregnant with Connor, and this baby is active virtually all day long!  Yes, it’s a boy…and no, we haven’t thought of any names yet – and we’re open for suggestions. If you have any, please send them to cheryl@coffeewithcheryl.com.

Preggo Week #13

My four sisters all hate me.

Not in a “I can’t stand her” type of way, more because my first pregnancy was an absolute breeze. No morning sickness, no major back pain…even my labor and delivery were easy (my water broke at 4:30am, I didn’t feel any labor pains until around 2:30pm, and my epidural was a little on the strong side – I was snoring between pushes). Then, on top of that, Connor was the most laid back infant I’ve ever seen.

Well, needless to say, I was completely caught off guard by a recent bout of what was either morning sickness (that actually stuck with me all day no matter what I did), or a reaction to medication prescribed to me for a typical UTI. I have spent the past 10 days more miserable than I can describe – with dizziness, headaches, upset stomach, and the urge to run to the toilet to vomit every time I smelled fresh coffee grounds.

On top of that, unlike when I was pregnant with Connor, my belly looks like I’m at least 4 or 5 months pregnant – with Connor, I wasn’t this big until I was six months along, and I was still wearing my pre-preggo clothes until I was five months pregnant!

Thankfully, I feel pretty close to normal today – just a little tired. I’m really hoping that the past 10 days and my larger-than-expected belly bump aren’t just a preview of things to come.
