Sympathy Pains

Warning! It's the middle of the night, so I hope this makes sense!!!

I just wanted to write a little about my sweet husband and the sympathy pains he's been having for me since I've been pregnant. The other morning, I heard him in the bathroom just gagging and heaving away! He came out and said, "I sure will be glad when our morning sickness is over!" This has happened pretty regularly over the past two months. He even had to come home from work early one day because he was so nauseated- for no apparent reason other than he was feeling my pain!

Fortunately, Gracie hasn't had nausea, but she has also been very supportive of her mommy. A few weeks ago, when I was feeling really poorly, she brought a boatload of toys to my bed. Thanks baby! The other day, she wanted me to dance with her or something rather active, and I told her that I just didn't feel very well. We'd have to do it later. She looked at me and said, "You don't feel well mommy? I hold your hand." And she did! Awwww- that made me feel better! We really try to keep her otherwise occupied when we're doing the injections, but she has popped in on us a few times. So occasionally, when she can tell I don't feel well, she'll say, "Mommy, you don't feel well? Want daddy give you a sot?" That's what she calls shots. :)
When she hears me gagging in the morning, she'll stop what she's doing and ask, "Mommy? You ok?" Yesterday, she went with me to have blood drawn. After the needle was pulled out, she patted my arm gently. It was too sweet!
Thank you Lord, for the love and support of my dear family!!!


  1. The 1st trimester is always tough for me! I am so glad that you have a great family to hold you up until those hormones settle down : )

  2. AWWW so sweet!!!! We too are trying to keep the kids from seeing me get my shot (although they are use to me giving myself shots due to my diabetes). I am so looking forward to telling them. Last night I thought the cat was out of the bag when my daughter asked if I was pregnant? She didn't know what pregnant was- she heard it on a tv show (the Duggars). Thankfull we were able to get out of that situation.

  3. ha ha! made me laugh out loud! and go back to bed!

  4. So sweet!! What a cutie! Sadie would kind of see Jeff give me a shot now and then and she would say, "Oowee! Oowee!" and then kind of fake cry. I felt so bad! Hoping those shots are over for you soon : )

  5. I've never heard of a husband having sympathy nausea before- too funny (not for him I'm sure!). What a sweet little girl you have! Feel better soon!
