Today Jacob should have been 5 months old.
A year ago today, I was 10.5 weeks pregnant and I had a breakthrough. For weeks I had been lying down on the couch every night after work. I would get up to eat dinner, then lie down again, only getting up when I had to run to the bathroom to throw up and then until it was time to go to bed. Sometimes I would fall asleep on the couch, but mostly I just felt nauseous.
Lindsay came over a year ago today to watch a movie. She arrived with a bag of Werther's and some crackers. I thought it was so sweet of her to do that, to remember that the Werther's helped the nausea alot.
Ted, Lindsay and I watched the movie Up!. It was a really cute movie. I started off lying down on the couch, but about halfway through the movie, I felt well enough to sit up, so I watched the rest sitting on the couch. I know that doesn't seem like a big deal, sitting upright on the couch, but it was for me. It had been weeks since I'd been able to do it and it felt good.
