Alright, it's been more than a week since I threatened to bombard and overwhelm you with blog posts and obviously, there has been no bombardment. I spent less time than anticipated on the computer while in Michigan last week (probably a good thing), and I've been more exhausted than usual. I don't know if it's from finally being finished with class and having the time to allow myself to be tired, or if it's from traveling all the way to Michigan and back BY CAR, or if it's because I'm pregnant. That was pretty fast, eh? I am obviously what you would call a fertile myrtle...
I had a feeling I was preggo about 2 weeks ago when all the signs started presenting themselves, but I assumed that it was too early for there to be signs and that there must be some other reason for the excess peeing and eating and the heightened sense of smell and the
frequent spells of dizziness when I haven't consumed enough calories and
the incredibly vivid though seemingly meaningless dreams (I don't usually dream) and the EXHAUSTION because there are tons of possible explanations for each of those things, right? Anyway, I also assumed I was ovulating during the power outage, and since Eric and I were definitely not knocking boots during those days when the house exceeded 100 degrees, I thought there was a good chance that I wouldn't get pregnant on my first month with no goalie in place. All of those assumptions were wrong. The signs were indeed pregnancy signs and who knows when I dropped an egg, but obviously there was a spermy there to greet it when it dropped.
This time around I know exactly when my last period was so there's no question about how far along I am. Using that strange method that doctors in this country use (where you count the first day of your last period as day 1), I hit 6 weeks tomorrow.
Hannah is happy though not completely clear about what's going on and is insistent that this baby be a sister...We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
In the meantime, I'm going to try to power through this exhaustion this week because I have at least 5 posts that are waiting to be posted and a ton of pics for each, and the backlog is starting to really stress me out, so maybe this will be the week I overwhelm you.
