Anyway, August was a really hard month for me. Both because of the anxiety and morning sickness. The good news is that the morning sickness is mostly gone and the anxiety is getting much better as well. I still struggle with it but at least now that the morning sickness is gone I can focus and one problem at a time. The morning sickness for this pregnancy was way worse than with my other three kids. In previous pregnancies I felt extremely tired and semi nauseous for the majority of the first trimester. Kick the nausea up and few notches and add in anxiety and you got my 4th pregnancy. I tried a few different medications (I was able to manage fine without meds before) none of which worked great and basically felt like I was biding my time to feel better. I don't know how anyone with bad morning sickness makes it through. I really feel like because of how horrible I felt there is no way that I will mentally be able to deal with any more pregnancies (after this one).
So that is pretty much everything on that subject. The baby is due in March and I am sure we will be wanting it to be sooner as we get closer to that date. Right now I don't feel like we are ready, but when is anyone ready for a newborn? I am thinking about not finding out the gender. Bob really wants to find out though. Any thoughts on if we should find out? We do have everything we need for a boy or a girl.
