Less than 100 days!

Yahoo - we finally made it to less than 100 days to go until this baby is born. And the only reason I know that is because of that little thingy at the side of our blog (I usually don't count things so far away in that fashion). Goodness gracious does pregnancy ever end?
I have to vent for just a moment(sorry Adam). It's really hard to not feel good. Ever. I keep waiting to feel just a little better, but it just doesn't seem to happen. That's why I CAN'T WAIT to get this baby out of me so I don't have to feel ill every single blasted day. Blah! Sometimes I really do feel like I'll go mad! I feel so badly for people who feel sick with a problem that they'll have for the rest of their lives. I can't even imagine. Those people have my heart and prayers.
Okay - I did my public complaining and I'll try to keep it to myself for a while!

I haven't been sick like you have, but this has definitely been my most uncomfortable pregnancy to date. I'm typing with one hand cause the other one is pretty much useless with carpal tunnel pain. If I could ask my mom anything, it would be how on earth she did this 7 times. Good luck on the final countdown!

I'm so sorry you don't feel good ever. You hide it pretty well - I can usually see it in your eyes, but you don't complain much. You're a pretty strong young woman to be so sick all the time and still accomplish what you do.
(I thought the magnet board you gave Gillian was the cleverest thing ever and I know that you painted it and did it.)
I would probably have stayed in my bed for the entire time had I felt like you do. Hang in there - it will end before you know it. Unfortuantely, you have a hot few weeks to go, but hopefully you will begin to feel a little better before this is all over.

Hang in there, Sis. Clark! My wife gets very sick as well for the whole time. I feel so bad for her, and helpless. Probably doesn't help you much for me to share that, but at least you know of others that are experiencing similar things. Best wishes, Steven (one of Adam's college roommates) and Karen Truscott, St. Louis, MO

Honey, I am so sorry you are going through this...wish I could help you. BUT, what cute little people you have, sweet, sweet spirits, (busy spirits, but sweet and special!) Just remember, " sorrow shalt thou bring forth children..." Then, once they're 'forth' what beautiful jewels you have! Enough of the words of wisdom??? Have a better day!
Love you...

I hear you! Pregnancy is rough - I don't like it, either - but I'm sitting here with my cute baby on my lap, so I can tell you that eventually "this too shall pass"...literally...:)

YOu do not have to worry about complaining when it hurts to be pregnant. I think I know what it sounds like, and after hearing it often, I actually believe what I hear!

It is wonderful that things like Ella and Henry are the outcome of the pain. They are so cool, and a joy for us all. Maybe you do not see that every moment, but then they will grow up, too, and write on their own blogs about their own kids. Those will be your grandkids.

They are mine, too. I am so greatful that you are willing to sacrifice for them and for whomever else the Lord sends. I love you all.
