One Goal Down!

Ever since the day Jeremy and I found out that I was pregnant we have had a goal in mind.....14 weeks. Why 14? Because the latest in a pregnancy that we had lost a baby was 13 1/2 weeks and this made us feel comfortable that we were past the scary part of the early stages. Today we have hit that milestone!! Yeah!!!

I am so happy to report that everything is going great. I puke all the time, which is inconvenient, but I am looking at it as "It is a symptom, at least I know something is going on!" The shots are getting better. I still near panic attack mode each day when I do them, but the bruising is very light now and THANK GOD I have yet to cut myself and pose the risk of bleeding to death! (knock on wood)I go to Dr. Lyons on the 12th and Dr. Graves in Nashville on the 13th. We will have an ultrasound in Nashville and lots of blood work to check platelet levels and such.

Jeremy is doing great with his therapy. He is able to take about 5 steps now without his crutches and is down to using only one crutch. He goes to therapy in Brownsville and Smiths Grove to Schaffer's. He sees Jeremy and they have really hit it off, which makes his three sessions a week fly by for him. The therapist says that he thinks he will be back to a close normal and ready for work in about 8 least that is what the report says that he is sending to the doctor that I opened up and read said! :) Jeremy goes to the doctor on Monday.

Speaking of Monday, I am finally coming to terms with Colby starting school. There is no doubt in my mind that he will be taken care of and loved. It is just something about that sweet baby being grown up enough to even go to school that really bothers me. I know I will cry when I leave him on that first day........and probably each day for the first week, but he is SUPER excited so I don't want to rain on his parade.

(Actually, I have realized that I am not scared of him going to school. I am scared of the fact that I will be stuck alone with his Daddy at home all day on days that I don't get to work! Talk about a nightmare!! ) :)

Colby celebrated the last few days of summer vacation very well. On Tuesday we went to the water park in BG compliments of my Daddy. On Friday we took him to Barren River Lake Beach during the day and my sis, his May May, took him to see G-Force last night. He had a blast at all three!

I hope all of you have a great weekend and a wonderful start to the school year!

Congrats on reaching that goal! Maybe even as the weeks progress the puking will slow down:o)

So glad everything is progressing along for least you're looking at the morning sickness in as positive a way as possible! It's wonderful news that Jeremy is healing well and is on the mend...I know you're happy with this since it won't be long till he's back to work since Colby is at school and all :o)

I'm so glad everything is going well with mommy and baby:) God bless you though being stuck with Jeremy all day every day for 8 more weeks. You're a strong women, however, and I know you'll survive.
