The Latest Knitting Project

I have had good reason to be away! You see, there is a wee one being knit together in my womb by an extraordinary Creator!!! Yes, for those who do not know yet, the Fabulous Four will become the Fantastic Five in March (Lord willing). We are so very grateful for this little one, so humbled and delighted that the Lord would chose to allow us to love and raise one more for Him. The reason for my absence, however, has been the EXTREME nausea I have experienced this time around. I am trying all sorts of things to make it more bearable but have not had much success yet. I welcome any and all suggestions! Until I get a better handle on this thorn in my flesh known as nausea, I likely will continue to be a bit sporadic in my postings. Be assured, though, that all is well here and we are enjoying our summer immensely!!!

Try eating LOTS of protein. I know when I'm nauseous sometimes protein is the last thing I can stomach, but I've been reading that it's supposed to help. Check out Blue Ribbon Baby for a good overview.
So excited for you, and praying for you and your sweet growing family!
Just heard a talk the other day on the glories of procreation! So, even though you're not feeling too glorious at the moment, you are working together with God to bring a new precious life into being!

Ericka - the best I can offer is living proof ( 3 times) that this too will pass. It is awful and you have my whole-hearted sympathy... hang on for a few more weeks.

Congratulations ericka! So happy for your family. And you can't be any more sporadic than my twice a year postings!!! :)
Can't wait to see what "survival mode" looks like in your house. Don't forget to nibble either.
