I Left The House

I finally left the house this past weekend.

For weeks now- maybe 5 or more- I've been so very sick as you know. Not able to leave my comfy bed, hot bath, & pjs. Then Thursday morning, the day I officially started my 11th week of pregnancy, the sun was shining and the sickness had lifted. I was feeling almost like myself again. And it was good.

I was able to get out for a bit by myself on Saturday and spent over an hour at Target- checking out all the things I've missed since I've been holed up in my house. And yesterday we all went to church as a family, which means I showered, put on makeup, and wore these shoes finally for the first time since I got them for my birthday back in early January!

On the way to church I asked my hubby if gas prices have been this high for long now and he said oh yeah. And he remarked that I have been sequestered for a while now. It was so good to be up and moving about again.

Today the sun is not out. It's very rainy. But I still feel like I'm over it. I'm so much better than I had been before. And this is very good.

  1. I'm so happy that you're feeling better and that you left your house! I sympathize...although I haven't been as sick as you, I'm certianly experiencing some crazy bad fatigue and nausea that I never had when I was pregnant with C. But, I've been feeling better since yesterday and am hoping for the best!!

  31. Those are cute shoes! So glad that the morning sickness is subsiding some. It's just THE WORST feeling EVER. Seriously.

    It reminds me how I don't remember October 2006 at all. In planning for our second we are taking into consideration a month that I can be out of commission. My sis-in-law is off from teaching then!!
