Thank you everybody, for the congratulations. If you have been around my blog long enough, you know that it has taken me a pretty long time to get this way. I actually thought I would be going to the doctor this month to find out what was wrong, but there I was Tuesday, getting a pregnancy test, and finding out that yes indeedy, I’m pregnant! You could have knocked me over with a feather Tuesday morning when I took my first test. I kinda thought I was…well, I knew something was up…and I cried when I saw those 2 pink lines! I’m just SO happy. I’m not feeling very bad yet either and I hope it continues. Just tired. Tired and crampy, not like Aunt Flo crampy, normal crampy. And my appetite is weird. Haven’t thrown up yet though! And of course, you can’t keep me out of the bathroom.
We did tell Ellie. At first, I know she didn’t understand, and I’m not totally sure she does yet. She’s not 3 yet though and I think right now it will have to be something she can see (like a big belly on me or even the actual BABY) for her to understand that she’s going to have a little baby around the house. When we told her, she though we were going to take my sister-in-law’s son. Then she was all “Ellie’s the baby, EllieBaby!” and of course we agreed with that! But the concept of Mommy and Daddy having 2 babies now was lost on her. We’ll keep working with her though. She is going to be a fantastic big sister. She already loves babies and helping her Mommy, so it should be good.
Now I just hope it doesn’t affect my reading like it did last time. When I was pregnant with my daughter I could not read a book to save my skin. I think I went from reading almost 80 books the previous year to like 35 that year. It was horrible. All I did was crochet because it was so easy to concentrate on.
Still reading The Observations by Jane Harris. Once I got pass the dialect, I really started whipping through it. Of course, this was before I found out I was pregnant. (Could it be, a mental thing??) Really enjoying it though.
