well, as the last of the marrieds…it’s finally my turn.

nausea day and night for the past few weeks, with no relief in sight
a decreased amount of energy, regardless of how long i sleep or how many naps i take
supremely tender breasts
a heightened sense of smell
the desire for coffee completely gone, the smell of which even turns my stomach
and an increase in the amount of times i have to pee each day
all comes down to one thing. one crazy, happy, scary, unbelievable thing.

i’m pregnant.

    So, yeah, here’s a bit of info for you. “A girl, a boy and me” said to have a delightful 9 months…it’s really 10 months…why don’t they tell us that BEFORE we get pregnant??

    On the other hand…that time is going by really fast for me, kinda scary fast, actually!

    Lol – I have had the worlds shortest pregnancies…the first the boy was 4 weeks early, the second, my body never kicked in “pregnant” until I was over 4 months along.

    Yep, you’re right, there are those times that the babies come early, which if they’re not too early probably make the moms happy. =)

    One of my favorite pregnancy books is The Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy, and she says over and over and over again that it’s 10 months. I’d never thought much about it before!

    Congratulations! That is great news, and to be honest, it is kind of scary finding out you are pregnant when you weren’t really planning it. Which is what happened to me.

    But it is ok to be a little scared, just know that it is all so very worth it when your precious little one arrives!

    Congratulations! What an exciting beginning of the year occurrence.

    I love knitting baby clothes. You should email me your address and I can make you something precious for your bun in the oven!

    HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!!!!!!!

    (Sorry. I hope the baby didn’t hear that. sorry sorry sorry)

    but

    GEEEEEEEEEEEEZ, dude!!!!!

    Wow.

    This is what happens when you don’t read your favorite blogs for a few days.

    Good lord, girl.

    *deep breath*

    Congratulations! You will be a wonderful mother, I just know it. 🙂
