A Long 3 Months!

Nick has been waiting FOREVER to be able to announce that we are going to be having a baby. I just have to say Nick is so sweet and adorable, I love seeing how excited he is about his baby. Just to give you all a little update with what has been happening and what not.
Well we got to Grenada a couple days after I found out I was pregnant, I was only four weeks and since we didn't know what to expect we carried on with our lives as usual. A week after we had been in Grenada I started throwing up! I would have been fine to stay there except I hadn't been able to stop... It had been a week and I had lost maybe a little more than 5 pounds. I was really weak and felt awful everyday. Poor Nick was just so worried about me every time he had to leave and go to school. We decided that it was time for me to go back to Utah where I could get proper healthcare and also so Nick would worry about me all the time. I move back in with my very caring mother and father-in-law. I flew the entire day and was weak and exhausted by the time I got to Utah, When I say Nick's mother and father I just wanted to cry. It was such a warm friendly face and I knew that we had made the right decision in sending me back. We went to the emergency room as soon as we got in, I had been having some pain and was afraid it wasn't a good sign. I was afraid the entire day of having a miscarriage. When I finally got behind to see the Doctor they drew some blood from me but had a really hard time finding a vein and when they stuck that needle in my arm and started wiggling it around I passed out. When I woke up again I was a little disoriented. My sweet mother-in-law was right beside me bed and she just smiled and told me what happened. A little while later they decided to take me down to get an ultrasound, at this point I was only about 6 weeks and 5 days. That was when I first saw our little peanut and heard the wonderful sound of his/her heartbeat. It was such a rewarding sound that all of my troubles seemed to melt away. Well I was discharged and we were a little annoyed because they hadn't given me an iv. well a couple weeks went by and I was still throwing up. I went to a clinic and they gave me something else for the vomiting, and it didn't work. I went to see my Doctor and FINALLY they said I needed to go to the hospital right away and get an iv. I can't tell you how much better I have felt! By the time I finally got that iv I had lost 15 pounds. I still haven't gained the weight back but I haven't thrown up in a while and I have been feeling really great! I'm just so excited and overjoyed about being blessed to have a little baby. Nick and I both know that it is a blessing and we are so grateful for the opportunity to be a father and a mother. I make 3 months tomorrow and despite all the worrying I have gone through I am SO glad we have these months under our belts.
