One HOT mama...

And by that, I mean that I woke up at 2am with my esophagus on FIRE!!! I have never ever in my life had heartburn before, until last night. I mean, so far I have had a "By the book pregnancy" meaning, if it's in the book as a possibility, then you can bet your sweet cheeks I have had it. I was really hoping this was one pregnancy symptom that my body would pass. That it would feel bad for me for all the others and just skip right over that part. Ha! I've heard from other friends how miserable and painful it was....and was hoping it wouldn't happen to me. BUT I couldn't be so lucky!!! At 2am I woke up with severe pain and burning from my throat down my to stomach. It took me a minute to wake up and realize what it was. It scared me at first because I've never had it. I laid there hoping it would go away...but it only got worse. I finally woke Nate up (I am sure before that with all my tossing and turning) and asked him if I could take rolaids. I was at the point of pure misery and couldn't take it any longer. I couldn't breathe and all of my insides were on FIRE! Nate jumped out of bed and ran to my rescue with the rolaids. Only, they didn't work quite as well as I had hoped. It was 6 rolaids and 2 hours and 45 minutes later before the pain eased one bit. And then it was time to get ready for work. I was sooo nauseous and still hurting. I've had the heartburn all day, just not as severe as last night. I am praying that I will be able to sleep tonight. Not only for myself, but for my sweet sweet husband and my Diesel boy! They were right up beside me all night. I feel horrible for keeping them up.

I know this will all be worth it when I hold my sweet baby boy...but for right now I can pray for it to go away, right?!?

I think tonight will be a sandwich, relax and sleep kind of evening. Yep, sounds better and better every time I think about it.
