My Blessings for the Day
Today I have been my husband's wife for 12 years. I am so thankful for him. What a great hubby he is! He's infinitely patient (which I need), gentle (I could not follow a hard-fisted leader), and a wonderful father (why else would I have 6 kids with him? lol.). He's also got some pretty great blue eyes, which helps. :) And he loves me fat or thin--which is good when I am pregnant.
I got an ultrasound yesterday which showed a very healthy little baby in there. I am between 11 and 12 weeks. Both the tech and I think we saw little boy parts in there (I've suspected all along), which would not surprise me since the sickness this time has not been as bad as it has been with my girls. But this brings me to my next blessing:
Raw milk. I know I've done a post about it before, but it really is miracle food for me. I know not everyone responds the same to anything, but I think raw milk is what turned the corner for me this pregnancy. Even when I was pregnant with my boys I was sick for at least another month over what I am now. Now, I am not 100%, and will still get really sick if I do not eat what seems like every hour, but considering I have not thrown up in almost a week or had intestinal, um, distress for almost that long tells me that I needed the nutrients in the raw milk (pasteurization changes too much about milk for it to even be the same food). The change was so sudden and so early that I worried my baby was not doing well, but that's not the case. I got the milk Monday and noticed a difference that evening. Even though I am pro-raw milk, I am still surprised at the difference it has made in my health! Praise the Lord.
