The Test Results Are IN!
So I havn't really decided to tell ALL that I am pregnant, but I thought I'd post it. So if you find out from the blog about our fun little news, then congrats to you. I've just been having a really tough time not talking about it because it is totally consuming my life. I don't remember the last time I felt this "sick". Not with my first two pregnancies...at least not this bad. Maybe I just forgot. I don't know. Anyway. Alex and I decided kind of last minute to try for baby number three. If I were to get pregnant in the month of September, that would mean that we would have a baby at the end of May beginning of June. Perfect! Alex is out for the summer about mid May and our insurance starts over in July! I am already 30, and I want four kids (although this pregnancy is making me "rethink" that number). Anyway, I want to be done by 35...so it just felt like it was time. This will put Mycah and baby three around 2 yrs and 4mo's apart. Nice. Ok, so now for the "not so nice". I am currently 8 weeks pregnant today. The sickness has offically kicked into full force. Eating makes me sick. Thinking about eating makes me sick. Not Eating....whoa! Talk about sick. So I feel like I am constantly stuffing my face with whatever sounds easy on my stomache. Although nothing is. I can't come up with anything that feels good on my stomache. Cooking is awefull! My poor family has been living on breakfast and frozen stuff. Saturday my body decided to add another illness, sinus cold/infection. Whatever you want to call it. It started with a little sore throat and developed this morning about 5:30am into a full blown sinus headache about the size of a watermellon, ears plugged tight that would click every time I would swallow, a stuffed nose, sore throat, my eyes felt like they were going to pop out of my sockets, and that all resignated down my neck and back. Ok, so add this to the nausea and prego aches and pains...I am just in an aweful state. I know you all don't want to hear this, but I have been complaining inside for weeks now and I just had to get it out there. I couldn't make it through church yesterday I was ready to pass out, so I had Alex bring me home during the last hour. The fatigue is hard. I can only get myself up and moving just once a day to clean. So my house is way messier than I am used to. Lets just say I CAN'T WAIT for the second trimester to come around and kick this crap out. Hopefully it will. So now that I can blog about this, expect a continual update on my pregnancy. If I'm feeling up to blogging.
