I'm PREGNANT!!!!!!!!! I want to shout it from the rooftops! We are SO excited! Today we had our 10-week ultrasound and everything is looking healthy and right on target. Actually, the baby looks like a sock monkey. I think that there are things my in-laws have not told me.
As my dear friend Kelly (Stutzman Scoop) guessed- this is the reason I've been MIA from my blog. It's the one topic that I'm always thinking about AND I'm so exhausted all of the time that I barely have the energy to open the laptop and log on.
As for what I haven't blogged about over the past 6 weeks (when I found out), I will be posting some previously written blogs. However, I think I can sum it up with a few tidy bullets:
- Week 6 u/s after a tiny bit of bleeding showed a subchorionic hemmorhage. SUCKY! I put myself on couch-rest for a few days and semi-panicked. Luckily, there's been no bleeding since then and today confirmed the health of our fetus.
- Morning sickness for me is really all-day queasiness. It peaks in the evenings. So, I shovel as much as possible in my mouth during the day because I might not be able to eat after 5pm.
- Even if I can eat after 5pm, I'm way too tired to function! My bedtime has been between 7:30-9pm. For the few hours leading up to bed, I'm pretty much stuck on the couch trying not to nap.
- I am at war with my bladder. I can usually sleep for 9 hours while knowing that I have to pee. Once I'm in bed- I'm staying there! However, that has changed and I'm now up around 3am every morning. I think I'm going to invest in a chamber pot...that rests under a big hole that I'm going to cut into my mattress.
