The doctor said that I have “Hyperemesis Gravidarum”, a rare very intense form of morning sickness.


Apparently this form of BAD morning sickness happens in less than 1 in 200 pregnancies.

Anyhoo…sorry I didn’t write for a few days… but I was sick!
I love you baby.

It is a silver cross engraved with “Forever Darling”. I wear it when I travel usually, but since you came into my life, I never take it off. So, what you do is hold the necklace/pendulum/ring over the pregnant woman’s belly to see what it does.

If it swings back and forth it will be a...

Good Morning Love

Each day that passes I am one day closer to holding you!

Each day that passes my heart hurts less and loves more… and it is all because of YOU!

A tiny little miracle of life growing inside of me. I love you sooo much. You truly are a blessing. I can’t wait until you are in my arms and I can tell you in person how much you mean to me.

Love Mommy
