Light at the End of the Tunnel

Well today has been one of the best days I have had in quite a while. When I say best, I only mean that luckily I have kept some food down, my brain hasn't been all that foggy and I didn't want to go to bed today at 6 in the evening because of pure exhaustion.
This first trimester has been quite a ride. I am 13 1/2 weeks now and hoping that these awful symptoms will begin to taper off. I am feeling pretty good now .....and hoping that it lasts.

I started school back last week. My schedule is really hectic and exhausting, but I am trying to remember that getting all these classes done now will be far easier than after our baby is here.

I am so blessed that this semester my wonderful husband has given me the gift of not working. For the first time since I was 16, I don't have a job! It is hard for me to sit back and allow someone to take care of me. It is really a gift right now to focus on school and preparing for the little one.
Shea has been the best husband the last 2 months. He gets up with me durring night if I am suffering a migraine, or sick. All throughout the day he by my side taking care of me and baby. I couldnt ask for a better nurse than Shea.
The dogs are both doing good. Their lives have changed a lot in the last 2 months. Not as many walks, or trips to the dog park or beach. They are hanging in there though. They are such a comfort to me on my worst days. If I just need to lay down for a while and swim in my own head, they are right there. There is one on each side of me, loving on me, caring about me and the most important thing of all..........feeling sorry for me.
They are such sweet boys.

As for our little bun in the oven, everything is coming along. The doctor says that he/she is a strong healthy baby. Only about 6 more weeks until we get to find out the sex! I cant wait. I am defiantly too impatient to wait until the birth. A lot of people keep telling me that we should, I know I would not last. Shea even suggested it once. I kindly replied " have you met me"?
So that is the update in the Drolet household. Not a lot of excitement going on. Just ordinary life.

I will try to do better at putting my thoughts on here more often. I am not a good cyber friend. I am not good at this or facebook. But I really would like to try to keep up with this more, even if just for the sake of a little journal of this time in my life.
