I know. I have been terribly remiss in posting updates about this pregnancy. As a matter of fact, it appears I haven’t posted in 3 months…and I have never gone that long without posting. I don’t suppose “I’ve spent the majority of the last 3 months asleep” counts. No, I didn’t think so. Well, let me update you for those who might still be following.

I am now 19w 5d. You can see my belly shots at Totsites, and we’ve been fairly good about taking them weekly.Be warned that the ultrasound pictures are up there as well, and the few items I have for the nursery. If you do go visit, pretty please sign the guestbook!

I have been blessed with an easy pregnancy so far. *knocks on wood* It hasn’t proceeded the way I expected it would – I anticipated much heaving and nausea, blood pressure and sugar issues, bedrest, etc. You know, all the bad stuff that happens to us. Why? I’m not really sure, except that it took us 6 years to get pregnant and my body hates me…so why shouldn’t it be rough? Instead, I was an absolute zombie for the first 10 weeks. I staggered out of bed and off to work, where I proceeded to attempt to stay awake. It was really hard during training, and I apologized repeatedly to my trainers – thankfully they understood and did their best to keep me awake. I couldn’t be left alone for 30 seconds or I’d drift off! I would then come home and sleep for about 2 hours until Aaron got home. Up for food, maybe some internet, and then back to sleep for the night. Rinse and repeat until about 10 or 11 weeks. I did have some nausea early on, but discovered that continual snacking keeps that at bay – yay for goldfish and cheerios! I also started showing at about 8 weeks, for those who knew what they were looking for.

Week 12 or so, I was less tired. Less tired enough that we actually got some yard work done that has been in the works for about 2 years. 🙂 Starting at about 16 weeks I started nesting, of a sorts. I decided that we should remove all the caulking and silicone in the bathroom because it was a little moldy and redo it. In the process, part of the wall popped off and we discovered a lot more than a little mold and rotted wood. So…for the past 3 weeks, my bathroom has been torn apart and we are re-doing it. Just the tub area, and no I am not working with much in the way of chemicals. Just the silicone!

My dreams have been really vivid and REALLY weird. Most of the time I can figure out where the different elements of my dreams are coming from – books I’ve recently read, games I’ve played, people I’ve been around. Not so much any more – they’re random.  I have a lot of worries and am getting tired of people telling me not to worry. When you’ve lived in the IF world, you know the things that can go wrong and how fast and it’s hard NOT to be concerned.

So far I haven’t had to get any new bras. I was out of my regular clothes completely by 9 weeks. Nothing has been done on the nursery (other than putting in my moms dresser) because we can’t afford it. Hopefully by the time Smallfry arrives we’ll have stuff – my shower is sometime in January, I think. We find out next week what gender Smallfry is, and I am totally stoked. Everyone thinks we’re having a girl and I hope so – Aaron will settle for human, and I’ll settle for alive.

Ok, I’m starting to input really random thoughts at this point. I think I’ll go get ready for work, and I’m going to try harder to update. I’m just having a hard time with it on many levels, so please be patient with me.
