Weekly Update Oct. 27-31

I thought I would give an update today because tomorrow we are going to be like a tornado. Dentist appointment for Tera in the morning, Kids getting their reading awards for the month at Pizza Hut, Both kids going for physicals and flu shots in the afternoon and then Halloween stuff. JP has the day off so being the genius I am I decided to fill the whole day up. JP has been working 10 hour days every day this week at work except for Monday. So our whole week has felt a bit strange. The kids always have a hard time adjusting when Daddy works a lot of overtime. But it's almost over and we survived.

We are 23 weeks today and at this point things are just ordinary. Baby is kicking a lot and hard. Tera actually felt him kick through my shirt. I don't remember the others kicking that hard this early, but it's been a while. We don't go back to the dr. for another 2 weeks but everything seems good.

We were going to volunteer at a community Trunk or Treat, but I started getting a really bad sore throat last night. I woke up this morning having a hard time swallowing without pain. I couldn't sleep so I got up and ate some toast, drank a big glass of orange juice and took some Tylenol. Besides gargling salt water and drinking hot fruit tea, that is about all I know to do for a sore throat when you are pregnant. I do not like to take medicine if I do not have to. I am not running a fever, and as long as I keep drinking fluids it doesn't hurt as bad. So when the guy called to confirm our volunteering tomorrow, I bowed out. I cannot sit outside at night with a sore throat and expect to get better. I also do not want to make myself sicker. So we will do our own thing this year, which may mean a trunk or treat at a smaller church with JP taking the kids. I will probably stay at home and give out candy to any kids who may come by.

I am so tired right now, I did not get a lot of sleep and plan on getting in bed soon after the kids tonight. I think with lots of rest, orange juice and prayer this thing will get better. I would appreciate any prayers, this is the first time I have been sick in almost a year.
