Holy Crap!!! I just found out on New Year's Eve that I'm going to be a mommy again. I was completely shocked and a little freaked out! I had to take two tests just to be sure.
I've been feeling extremely tired and queasey for the past week and figured I was coming down with the flu. Ha! Around 9:30ish on New Year's Eve I was checking my email when I started feeling really sick to my stomach. I grabbed a pillow and blanket and set up camp on the couch. When my husband came downstairs I said, "Honey, I think I'm coming down with the flu or something." He asked, "You're not pregnant, are you?" I said, "Naw, I don't think so." But he needed to know for sure, so he ran to the store for a test. Lo and behold...... I was stunned. The first thing that came to mind is "I'm 40 and going to have a baby". That is what freaked me out the most. Now, after a couple of days of it sinking in, I'm thrilled! Another baby!! Maybe we'll get a little boy this time. And please God, let there be just one this time. God has a wicked sense of humor, so we'll just have to wait and see what he's got in store for us! Healthy is really all I ask for.
This pregnancy is definitely going to be different from the last. I'm so queasey and just want to sleep. Last time, nothin'! I kept taking tests to see if I was still pregnant because I didn't feel any different. BIG change this time! Saltine crackers have been my saving grace. God Bless Nabisco. Today is actually the first day in about a week and a half where I've felt half-way human. It's going to be interesting.
So, needless to say, I probably won't be posting a whole lot in the coming months, but I'm sure I'll pop in from time to time to give you all an update.
