I must say, that was a pretty rough go! I'll tell you what, those shingles are no joke! This whole thing has not been fun - not fun at all (understatement of the century!). I do think that the worst is over and thanks to the wonderful support of my family and friends (and especially my amazing husband for doing EVERYTHING for me), I am finally on the mend. The rash is still here, but is getting better, and I do still have quite a bit of nerve pain, but it is MUCH better than it was 2 days ago!! MUCH!! This was a very interesting first week of pregnancy (well...first week actually knowing that I'm pregnant). I am truly hoping that the only place to go from here is up!!! :) Fingers crossed, ok guys!? Thanks!

**Oh....and someone please tell my sister that the new nickname she has for me - "Shingy's" - is NOT nice and that she must nip that in the bud asap!! LOL!! ( ;) I love you sis! - but stop it!! haha )


  1. so glad it is on the mend! from here it will be going up and out (as your belly expands!). ;)
    and i am sure we can come up with a much more clever nickname... ali and iw ill work on it. :)

  2. Ha ha, ok, I'll stop. LOVE you sister and I'm so so glad that you're feeling better. Soon, you'll wake up feeling FAT and 100% better and I'll be a happy auntie. XOXO

  3. ME TOOO!!! I am very happy you are on the mend. Can't wait to kiss that baby bump. Love you! xo

  4. glad you're feeling better... good point that from here you can only feel better :) Can't wait for baby bump pictures, although I know it will be a while, keep us posted!
