Lots of love & support

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I need to say a huge thank you to everyone whose been so supportive the last few days. I've had a few days of overeating that have been correlating with my crappy emotional state. I've been so tired lately, and I've been just trying to get through each day as they come.

I'm just entering the third trimester, and the exhaustion has returned with a vengeance. Couple that with the doubts and worries I've been having about being a first time mom, and facing the reality that my epilepsy really DOES affect more than just me in all of this, and I've been struggling with alot and thus not eating well.

Eating MORE doesn't bother me now, it's when I know the choices aren't good for me or my baby, that I get worried and upset with myself. I can't wait till this baby is born; but I just know that will bring more changes and more challenges, both at home and with the epilepsy. So I'm trying to gather as much info and prepare as best I can.

It's been tough. But thanks to everyone in my life, you guys, as well as everyone offline, I know I'm not alone. :)

    You know I'll be there for you as much as I can sis - I Love You and I am so proud of how well you have been taking care of you and Nathan thus far!! You can be a proud mom for all you've done and one day Auntie Chrissi can tell him all about how much him Mommy loved him from the very beginning and took such good care of herself in order to take good care of him :-)

    I know this is when things are going to get the roughest for you, but I know you are strong enough to handle it - look how far you've come Sis, really think about how far you've come. You are much stronger now than a year ago and that's a lot to be proud of.

    Don't give up - if your body needs rest honey, give it what it's asking for. At this point you may need more than a normal preggo because you are different than a normal preggo. Don't be too hard on yourself - you are an amazing woman, a great friend, a loving wife and soon you'll be one of the most loving moms I'll know :-)

    When you start doubting honey, go to your books. Find the strength you need inside yourself, but use them as your map. You'll make it Sis :-)
