For now - I am not sick... but this has been a rough pregnancy. Paul would tell you that this has been my most difficult pregnancy yet. The first few months were sickness, fatigue, and headaches (though we did learn after a few months that the headaches were from that
I feel pretty badly most of the time. I am reading a LOT and playing on the blog. I cannot walk up the stairs without great fatigue and shortness of breath. I cannot lift my arms over my head for more than a moment. Rebecca and Paul do all of the cooking. I do only a little of the clean-up... not much at all. I am not disabled like before... just fatigued to the point of inability to function. Paul bought me some expensive health-food-store prenatal vitamins today. He is truly hoping that either these vitamins will help or the Lord will reach out and heal me.
For now... well, I am terribly grumpy because I can't do anything. The messy house gets on my nerves. The piles of dishes and laundry get on my nerves... and I can't do a thing about it.
Is that honest enough? I really am not trying to be whiny to get attention. I deliberately have kept my health comments to a minimum. But, I know that some of you are true prayer warriors, and I need your help. We hope that God restores my strength soon!!!
The praise report in this is that due to my great sickness/fatigue Rebecca has become quite independent in the kitchen. She can follow recipes by herself and cook whole meals without help. God has been very good to me!
