The love of a mother

Bringing a new life into the world always means experiencing changes. Changes in a family, changes in responsibilities. Change happens first, though, in a woman’s body. For me, it was 3 months of morning sickness the first time. The second time around it was unimaginable exhaustion…oh! and queasiness.

For some women, they get the morning sickness that won’t stop. Sometimes it can it gets so severe that it lands them in the hospital. This has happened to Lindsay with all four of her pregnancies. If I remember right, none of her pregnancies were the same, in regards to the Hyperemesis. It varied from pregnancy to pregnancy.

Hyperemesis gravidarum is a condition characterized by severe nauseavomiting, weight loss, and electrolyte disturbance. Mild cases are treated with dietary changes, rest and antacids. More severe cases often require a stay in the hospital so that the mother can receive fluid and nutrition through an intravenous line (IV).

Lindsay is such a strong woman. She knew that the chances of going through this each time she got pregnant was high. Despite this, I know she would never change a moment of it because her reward was her beautiful children.

Congrats Will, Lindsay and children!!
