Happy Thanks!

Hope y’all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. And if you went out for Black Friday, I hope you were safe and got everything you wanted. I, for one, do not like waking up before the sun, nor so I like big crowds. And clearly, this year I have the only gift I want 😉

My mom has been staying with us since Emmalyn was born, and my dad came for the day yesterday to spend Thanksgiving with us.
My mom’s going back home today
(don’t wanna think/talk about it… I’m gonna bawl my eyes out!! Even though she’ll be back next weekend.)

BUT, Blake’s parents are coming today and his mom is going to stay with us for several days. Thank goodness!!!

As for my health… I’m still trying to feel better. I was in the ER TWICE for nausea (threw up once) and dehydration, even though I’ve been downing water and Gatorade like I’m going to the desert! I’ve just been so weak that I can’t even function. Like, can’t even fully take care of Emmy. It’s been awful. I’d much rather be in pain than nauseous. 

We’re not sure if the nausea is a result of postpartum or maybe I’m just sick?? B thinks I could just possibly have the flu or a bug. Especially since now my throat is hurting. UGH! I just wish I knew what was wrong, and when it’s going to STOP! Seriously! I’ve been miserable. I’ve been trying to enjoy my angel as much as possible, but it’s hard when you feel like you’re going to throw up almost 24/7.

Any other moms ever experience anything like this?

*P.S. This is Emmalyn’s due date*

  1. Emmalyn is beautiful – just like her mommy! I hope you are getting better by the moment!! And although it's so sad that your momma is leaving, I'm happy you have someone else coming to help you!! And you're right…5-7 days is easy-peasy 😉
    Get to feeling better, lady!!!!

  2. Emma is gorgeous!
    I'm sorry you're feeling so bad, love. Just know that it is so normal to have so many different feelings postpartum, emotionally and physically. It's such a trying time so just be good to yourself. I'm willing to bet that when Emmalynn is about 3 weeks old, you'll start feeling tons better. Your body just needs to straighten out those hormones!

  3. She is SO adorable! I really hope that you will start to feel better and completely enjoy your time with your gorgeous girl! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving too 🙂
