Well hello! I know you all must have thought I dropped of the face of the earth, but I am still alive!! Alive and kicking...well the little the little wiggler inside my belly sure is kicking!

That's right! I'm PREGNANT
18 Weeks and we just found out today it's another boy!

My vacay from blogging was mainly due to extreme morning sickness which seems to be starting to pass, and well a complete lack of motivation and energy! And although I am starting to feel much better sickness and energy wise my back is messed. Like a complete disaster, I can hardly carry Asher and today, I can hardly walk. Arg. I am hoping a mix of Ibuprofen, Cranial Sacral Therapy and Massage Therapy will help.  (Did you know you can take Ibuprofen till you're 28 weeks? I didn't and man it would have come in useful cause Tylenol seriously does nothing for me. Thank goodness I went to my Dr. today.) If any of you have experience severe low back pain during pregnancy and found things that help please share the knowledge! I need all the help I can get!

ANYWAY That's what's been going on with me the last 18 weeks! I have a few projects on my to do list that I am hoping I'll be able to do and share with you guys soon. And thank you to all my fellow blogger for all the great posts lately! I am getting so inspired by all of you this fall season! I love it!

 I have done a little card making over the past few weeks so I'll share some of my favorites with ya!

Congratulations! I understand about the morning sickness. I had it with all three of my children.
I have a chronic pain condition. My microwave heat pack is my friend! I can take it to bed with me and do not have to worry about falling asleep with it. You can make your own. Sew a fabric pouch and fill half way with long grain rice (not the instant stuff). Sew the pouch shut. Microwave for 2 minutes. I cover mine in a towel. It makes it more comfortable for my skin. The heat lasts about 2 hours. The pack conforms to my body and is much more effective than a heating pad. Drop me an email if you need more info or want to vent!

congrats girl! My biggest advice with the low back pain is if it gets excrutiating (like you cant move cause the pain is that bad) go to the dr right away. I have had two friends that had that kind of pain and both ended up hospitalized. not trying to scare, just want you and baby to be healthy :)

When I was pregnant with my second baby, I had terrible back pain, too. I used one of those weird belly band thingies that velcros under your belly. It was weird but helped me A LOT! I think I paid like $20 for it at babies r us! Hope that helps! Congratulations!

Congrats on your little guy!!!

Thank you all so much! I had an hour Cranial Sacral Therapy session tonight and the pain has gone down a bit. Heat pack and bed and hopefully I won't wake up too stiff and sore. I can't even lift my 1year old which is so depressing.
