Major Thank you to Facebook because most of you already know the "Robinson News." We are having another baby. To tell you the truth we all are a little.... make that Lot surprised. Since Micah turned what a week, I was sure that I would not have another child, well God had other plans. I decided on Christmas day that I was pregnant when I had heartburn. I have never experienced heartburn in my life except when I was pregnant with Micah. I told Stacy that I thought I was probably pregnant to which he just laughed.
Two days later when my symptoms hadn't gotten any better, I sneekily bought a test from Wal-Mart. By now I was sure I was pregnant, but the question still is how. Anyway in less than 10 seconds the test proved what I knew to already be true..... Pregnant! I told Stacy to come and see and we just stared in awe. Both knowing that God has something planned that we don't anything about, we went through a period of stress. I cried a WHOLE lot. During this time I also began vomiting. This may be TMI, but keep in mind this is also for my own records for my blog book. For 3 weeks I was VERY sick, I could hardly make it through the day and sometimes thought I would die. I threw up EVERYTHING I injested. I lost 8 pounds and was near dehydration when the Dr. called my in a prescription for a very strong anti-nausia medication. It began to work wonderfully, but I Hated the side effects. At first it caused me to be very dizzy. I don't like that feeling at all! It also causes major drowsiness. As if I wasn't tried enough anyway! I laid off taking the med unless I really felt like I needed it. Then I went from 24-7 sickness to 24-7 sleepiness. My day would consist of waking up in the morning, getting Micah ready for school, taking him to school (20 mins from home) I would have to stop on the way home to rest my eyes for a little bit. Once I made it home I would sleep until time to pick him up from school, then pick him up, fix him lunch and put him in his room so that I could sleep again. I couldn't stay awake for more than 1 1/2- 2 hours, hince No blogging. I would go to bed between 4:30- and 7:00 depending on if sweet Stacy was home and sleep until 7:00 the next morning, just to do it all again!
I discussed all of this with my doctor yesterday hoping he had a miracle vitamin to give me energy, but not keep my up at night, he didn't. He told me that "normally people are Either sick OR tried," and that I got the worst of both. Then he told me that because I didn't take the medicine regularly, that was my problem. He said that when I was taking all of the time the drowsiness wore off, but when I began taking it sporatically, I was Always sleepy. So day number one of NO medicine, I only threw up once, and only took one nap (45 mins) I do plan on going to bed soon.
As of right now we're being told that I am 12 weeks 4 days and that I'm due August 22nd! Another August baby! Until yesterday I was having more of a hard time, then I saw those little feet kicking and a little tiny arm rubbing it's face, it'll be alright I'm sure of it!
