So whats all this fuss about?

I made this big announcement of how crazy my last few weeks have been and I promised a big announcement. Well I actually have two big announcements. The first and most um.. most forward on my mind is what's been ailing me the last few weeks. It all started with the worst bout of insomnia that I've had in pretty much my entire life. I thought at first it was all the stress I've been under with all that's going on in the last few weeks. I'd lay down in bed, mind you late as I never go to bed before 2am, and just sit there staring at the ceiling, and feeling like my entire body was on fire.

It really hit a head while I was at my parents house helping dad take shifts at the hospital watching mom. I was exhausted and laid down somewhere around midnight and I was still laying there with the lights off watching Connor sleep in the playpen next to me when the clock hit 6am. I must have tried everything I could think of and without freezing my child to death even turned the fan up on high.. still burning up.. still no sleepie. I should have known right then and there that this was no insomnia problem this was something more.

Then a few days later I made my trip to Promise Ponies. I didn't even bother packing riding gear to test out the ponies as by then I felt like I was pretty certain what the problem was and I just watched the ponies I was there to look at. Connor did get the luxury of riding a pony named Tinkerbell at a nearby pony farm and he talked about that ride for the next few days nonstop. Even though it was barely a minute as he got nervous when she shook her head a little, I already feel I have another star rider on my hands, heh, ok that's totally my wish but it makes no difference to me. On the way home however my "suspicion" was pretty much confirmed. I must have peed at least 15 times from the time we left Milton to the time we arrived in Defuniak Springs... about a 2 hour drive give or take.. it took us much much longer.

The ever classy person I am.. I stopped by the local department store and purchased just the thing I needed to confirm my suspicions and seeing as I couldn't wait to get home, I shamefully did the deed in the bathroom right in the store. heh. I have no patience whatsoever for surprises.

So there it is people.. the double lines. I'm pregnant. Heh. We were trying but lord knows I didn't expect it to happen so fast. So in one day Connor got a pony and a little brother or sister. I went a few days later to a doctor and had it confirmed though we are not totally certain yet just how many weeks I am along. My official appointment with my ob/gyn is on Monday and I should have some more news by then. Needless to say that's the real reason I've been MIA. Between not sleeping when I want to and having the overwhelming urge to sleep when I don't want to (ie middle of the day) and 24 hour nausea and mood swings this pregnancy thus far is been quite the experience. With Connor I had a little tiny bit of nausea here and there and wanted to nap the first few weeks but for the most part from the day I got pregnant to about 8 weeks before he was born I felt like a super hero. With this one on the other hand I feel like a moody, sleep depraved, hung over, nausea driven psycho. I am incredibly bloated, and seriously I feel as if I've already gained 30 pounds. I was chunky to begin with but now I feel like a beached whale with 24hour PMS. Hmm.. I wonder if this means its a girl? heh. Another weird symptom, with Connor all I could think about was salad and anything spicy like jalapeno nachos. That still sounds appealing to me now... but really all I want is fruit and pickles. I'm attempting to eat a truck full of clementines as we speak. They are quite possibly the one thing that doesn't make me want to hurle at first sight.

Honestly enough I don't care if its a girl or a boy. I'm excited, overjoyed, a little nervous (if you've heard Connor's birth story you'd understand the nervousness), and I pray a little every few minutes I would throw up so quite possibly I could get rid of some of this nausea. Oh yeh and its 6:15 am and I've yet to sleep so um, with that said I think I'll go try for the second time tonight. Wish me luck that this time my eyes close and don't pop open again. I'm also having the weirdest dreams.. and I do mean weird.. so that's not helping.

Last night I dreamed I was taking care of my friend's fish.. but instead of fish in her tank there was thousands of overgrown blood worms and maggots. I know, grossssss eh? I literally woke up and said out loud, what the *blank*, and the trick was on me as I couldn't go back to sleep.

I have a HUGE giveaway planned for Blogher. So stay posted. I'll release more details later today pending when I wake up.
