In a nut shell...

Yay for no more morning "nausea"!!!! I never actually threw up, but I certainly felt like I was going to, lol. Although, throughout this whole thing, I've come to realize that I don't care much for soda anymore. I basically lived off Ginger Ale and Sprite and now I'm done! Even switching to diet didn't really help - it's all pretty gross about now.

I am also a medical mystery. Two weeks ago, I was bitten by a brown recluse spider for the third time in five months - how did I manage that?!??!! I wish I knew, because I would change it in a heartbeat! It's just too much pain and suffering for one person. Jason has been so great taking care of me, though. I don't know what I'd do without him... I was only in severe pain for about 3 1/2 days or so before the pain was gone and all that's left is the nasty hole. Because of all of the stress and pain of the spider bite, my body is responding in strange ways. I got a major cold sore which is FINALLY going away! And on the leg opposite from my bite, I have atleast two boils (gross I know!) and this weird rash. I've asked several people I know that are doctors and they don't know what it is. Fortunately, I got insurance today - about time!!! So, I'm going to the doctor as soon as I get my card!

OH!! Most exciting baby news of the week - I heard the heartbeat on Sunday! It was amazing!!! Jason came with me to my midwife appointment and at just under 12 weeks - we heard it! Well, Jason wasnt' really sure what to listen for and it was pretty faint, but I am positive I heard it! The midwife heard it too so I know I wasn't just imaging it, lol. It was too cool!!!!!!
Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
