but this is the best picture to show how I feel :)
This pregnancy was really different at first, I had no symptoms until about 2 weeks ago. With Skylee I had symptoms before I even found out I was pregnant with her. There is nothing like it when Skylee comes over to where I am, wraps her little arms around my neck, gives me a big kiss, and says "I love you mommy". I doesn't make all my aches and nausea go away, but it's a great reminder of why I wanted another one, not to mention it melts my heart. Skylee is my littlest bestest friend, she knows how to make me laugh and she is great company to have around.
Not having Ryan around has been a challenge. Most days I don't even feel like I'm capable of taking care of myself, let alone little Skylee. He went on a military assignment with the Brazilian military to Key West, Panama, Coracao, and now he's stuck in Puerto Rico. He was supposed to be home today, but good old Hurricane Hannah is holding him up. If the weather clears up, he'll be home on Thursday, I'm crossing my fingers! The time away has really made me realize how much I rely on him. Ryan is a great husband and daddy!
This time around, as sick as I've gotten, I have a completely different perspective, I know what blessings are in store and I have a better idea of what to expect. I know I have to do my part, therefore I'll be begging my OB/GYN for the same presription that I took with Skylee! I'm going to try to get in this week, but I'll for sure have an ultrasound picture in 3 weeks. I'll keep you posted :)
