thankful thoughts on thursday

When things are rough it can be hard to be thankful for things.  I have had a rough pregnancy (in my opinion and it is my first so I have nothing to compare it to). I am almost 17 weeks and still have nausea and am still throwing up. It is miserable. And about every other single negative symptom possible I think. But I have to remind myself how lucky I am to be pregnant. I prayed for years to get pregnant. And so many women are still trying. I am thankful to be pregnant. I am thankful that my twins are healthy. They are growing and right where they should be. I miss being able to eat and not get sick. But I know it is all worth it- so worth it. I can't wait to be a mom to these two little munchkins! 

And now here are some of my favorite ecards about pregnancy and IVF... 
i would love to feel that way again and makes me mad for a woman to be pregnant and not to love every min of it because i would love it but it has been taken away from me 2 times now
Whoever said 'Money can't buy happiness' has never learned they can only have children through IVF!

The 30 Best Someecards for Infertility   IVF because sometimes you just need to laugh at it


  1. i am so sorry you are sick. I was sick a lot too.. Then one day I woke up and was no longer sick. I hope it goes away soon.. You can do it.. :) Happy Thursday Chelsea @ thewilliamsjourney1.blogspot.com

  2. I'm sorry that you feel so sick. I hope that it gets better for you soon!

  3. Oh, sorry you're so sick! I battled nausea until about 17 weeks too! My mom and Grandma always told me as soon as you can feel the baby, the morning, excuse me.. all day sickness goes away! It was true for me and I hope it's true for you!

  4. It stinks to be sick during your pregnancy. Zofran was my friend the entire pregnancy. I tried EVERYTHING to not get sick all day long. As soon as my little one arrived heart burn, reflux, morning sickness, headaches...were gone. It will be here before you know it!

  5. Ugh I'm so sorry you still feel bad!! I felt awful with my pregnancy with Miller until 15 weeks but it took me until about 18-20 to fully recover and get over all my food aversions. I also had every crappy symptom in the book, sore hips, nose bleeds, etc. My back pain and sore hips lasted all 40 weeks. I ended up having to sleep in our guest room because I hated our bed- it was too soft. It's funny what pregnancy does to you :)
