For the last two weeks I've been dizzy, queasy, and so tired that it seems like an impossible feat getting from the couch to my bed. Most food does not sound good, but strangely enough the thought of re-fried beans makes my mouth water. I've been suspicious, but also in denial, until yesterday morning when I peed on the stick and two pink lines appeared. So, baby number two begins! For those of you that haven't figured it out, I am pregnant! Although, I do have this weird thought that what if it wasn't correct and I'm telling everyone and it turns out it was all in my head. That would be embarrassing.
My three year old daughter stared at me blankly when I explained it to her, she didn't quite compute it at first. Then she jumped up and said "I'm going to go get the baby book with all the pictures". The book she is referring to is a 70's pregnancy book with LOTS of pictures, most of which are scary. The hideous maternity clothes, the man perms, the HUGE mustaches, and lack of grooming in other areas which I will not mention. You get the picture. I did not buy this book, it was given to me when I was pregnant with my daughter.
So, we are happy, but it doesn't really feel like reality yet. I know reality will be dropping an anvil on me soon enough. I resolve not to gain 52 pounds this time. I also resolve to be nicer to people. Along with that I need to learn to control the murderous thoughts I tended to get when someone didn't get my order right or Jack didn't bring home the correct chocolate. I also resolve not to make this a typical boring pregnancy blog. Pregnancy milestones usually aren't all that interesting to hear about unless you know the person, in my opinion at least. So if I decide to share some of the quirks of this pregnancy, or embarrassing moments, it's only because I think you might find it funny or entertaining. If it starts getting boring, just let me know. Or maybe not, it depends on how moody I am.
