I Survived!

I wanted to thank you all so much for your comments and prayers. I could totally feel so many people praying for me. I have learned so much about pain and suffering through this time. I cannot imagine the slow suffering of cancer etc... The pain can be so unbearable at times to where all you can do is pray. I felt really awful from Saturday-Tuesday. I started to not vomit anymore on Tuesday. I think I vomited around 20 times during this three day span and so the relief of that alone made me feel better. My mom was such a servant to us and literally did everything for me and the kids during her time here. She made us awesome meals and cleaned my house! The girls loved having her here and in the mean time they both got colds. She was taking care of three pretty pitiful girls. I saw my doctor today for a follow up visit. It was really informative as he did another ultrasound. The baby is great. It pretty much sounds like the fibroid will not effect the baby just me. I can have a normal delivery he thinks so far and everything seems fine. He said I was in so much pain because of the rapid growth of the fibroid due to all the hormone changes with the first trimeter etc... I look huge. I am not kidding it really makes you show a lot earlier and he said it was normal. The fibroid has not grown, but it could. I am praying it just stays the same size. I was able to go to work today and did pretty well. The huge praise is that we've had a trip planned to FL since June leaving tomorrow. The doctor said it was fine for me to just to take it easy which should be pretty easy to do. I am so glad I didn't have to cancel our trip. Mike has so been looking forward to it since it is his first break after a busy fall. We are going with another family in our church and their children. We will do Disney a few days( I may get a motorized wheel chair ha ha!) and just relax at our timeshare. I will keep you all posted and I have so many pictures from the past month that I hope to upload in Florida. Thanks for your friendship!

ps-I forgot to mention the doctor is predicting a boy because I have had no morning sickness etc... until this last episode, but that was due to pain. I feel totally different than I did with Ellie and Anna. We will have to wait and see, but maybe not to long cause I think I will get an ultrasound almost every visit. I am 9 weeks and due June 10th!
