8 Weeks

So, if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I outed myself this weekend as being a barfy, bloated, kind of crabby pregnant lady.


It is part of the reason I haven’t been posting much lately. I’ve spent most (and by most I mean 99.9%) of my free time on the couch, trying not to throw up. The first trimester isn’t really my friend. When I was pregnant with the little monkey, I was sick for pretty much the whole first trimester. I lost about 10 pounds or so and swore that I’d never do this whole pregnancy thing again. Ha.

As of today, I’m down nine pounds from when I found out I was, much to our MAJOR surprise, pregnant three weeks ago, so it looks like I am right on track to have a similar experience as last time, though this time I really super duper mean it when I say I don’t ever want to be pregnant again (snip snip darling husband).

Don’t get me wrong, even though this pregnancy was a surprise (hey, remember that post I wrote a while back about how my doctor told me I had PCOS and would “need assistance” if I ever decided to get pregnant. Haaaaaaaaa!) we are pleased and hopeful about this baby. I just really, really hate the first trimester.

    OK, I SWEAR I’m not stalking you – I just got on the computer, looked at Google reader, and there you were at the top. Congratulations!!! Hope you feel better soon, and hope the other family members are excited!

    Hopefully everything will end right at 12 weeks instead of linger on through the second trimester 🙂 We love you guys and are so happy for you 🙂

    Just tell Michael to block out a Friday afternoon and the rest of the weekend, stock up on frozen veggies and you won’t have this problem again.

    Let me correct something: She has totally *not* been crabby. At least has not expressed any crabbiness. Sometimes she is under the impression that asking me to get her a glass of water from upstairs is an act of crabbiness. I just wanted to set the record straight.
