so as some of you may know, we're from South Carolina.. we heard about the warnings yesterday, but they are in FULL force today.. it's almost 11 a.m., I've been up since 9 a.m., just fell asleep at 7 a.m. I don't feel good at all, mainly b/c of exhaustion, I'm 14w5d, and quite frankly I'm starving.. wonderful day so far!!!!!!! (sarcasm). -- we are facing flooding rains, large-sized hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes.. whattttt?!!!!
I'm not kidding at all when I say the thought of a tornado used to have me in a corner, nauseous, having panic attacks.. it was my #1 fear. more than snakes, clowns, or any other creepy crawly thing in this world!! well, eventually I prayed long & hard enough, fought my fear, and I slowly got over it. hardest thing I had to do in my life..
well, what have I gotten engaged to?! a full-blown tornado-phobic man who is now FREAKING OUT.. and his family?!!!!! oh my sweet baby Jesus.. they're already talking about putting mattresses in the bathroom.. and I don't even know what else. I don't even want to hear it.. I'm just of hearing it.. I have more to worry about!! I know this is all dangerous, but geez.... GOD is in control. I can't do anything but pray & hope for the best. I'm all this baby has!!!!!!!
I'M TRYING TO NOT STRESS & NO ONE IS HELPING!!!! I keep reminding him that I have TWO, TWO, TWO people to worry about... me & the baby!!! I can't stress, I can't panic, my heart rate affects the baby's heart rate.. nothing I say is helping. no one understands how stressful it already is to be pregnant & worry about that in itself, but now everyone is freaking me the $#@! out & I'm getting pissed, worried, just UUUGGGGGHHHHH!! everyone insists on watching NOTHING but the weather channel, pointing out the weather map, talking about the possibilities, blah blah blah..
please, please keep us in your prayers.. including my sanity.. because I'm slowly losing it..
love you ladies.. & I'll keep you updated.. ❤
