Have you heard?

Have you heard?

We're having a baby!! May 1st is the due date :)

I am thrilled beyond belief, and sicker than a dog.

Music, loud TV, and noise really irritate me. The louder the noise, the more nauseous I become. I like silence. I love to stare outside and watch the leaves rustle in the trees. Nature is my entertainment. It's very therapeutic actually.

Most the time I'm just trying to get through the next hour. Not even the day, the hour. My constant thought? Don't throw up. Don't throw up.

I wake up every night around 4am feeling sick, wandering around the house searching for a cure. Sometimes I just lay on the couch eating fruit, other times I sip on Ginger Ale (which, by the way, seriously helps).

I look at all the wonderful American foods I've missed like crazy and wish I could gobble them up, to no avail. I watched SuperDan munch on pizza topped with parmesan cheese the other day. My mouth watered and my stomach churned. It's a weird concept, I know.

Hopefully someday soon I can eat my favorite foods again. Hopefully someday soon I can feel like myself again. Hopefully someday soon I will be excited to wake up in the morning. Until then, I'm just keepin' on keepin' on.

P.S. I got this awesome haircut one week before my nausea kicked in. Sadly I have zero energy or desire to style my hair now. Thankfully at least it looks halfway decent even if I do absolutely nothing with it. You know something's wrong with me if I don't want to do my hair. Seriously wrong.


  1. I read your post Casey... I'm SO sorry your sick.. I have been really sick with my pregnancy too so my heart goes out to you. Praying you feel better soon!

  2. We are so excited for you guys, both that you're adding to your family and that you're closer! Sitora is going to be the best big sister!
