I’ve been gone for ages, I know. Thank you everyone who dropped by to wish us well. I see I have a lot of comments to read through. I didn’t think I’d be gone for so long but feeling like crap wasn’t conducive to doing much. You haven’t missed anything though. Nothing exciting has been going on here. I’ve been pretty much planted on the couch, barely touching my camera. I’ve barely left the house. The time just dragged by, a seemingly never ending amount of days of feeling so awful that I could just cry. In fact I probably did and most likely during one of those times when I was puking my guts out.
I know when I was pregnant with Isabelle I was still able to blog, even with the nausea and puking of guts. But this time it was different. Not the nausea. That unfortunately was just as bad as before, lasting all day and night, even when I was sleeping. But the biggest difference is my sleeping.
I’m usually a great sleeper. But this time around I’ve been having the hardest time with sleeping. I don’t know if I didn’t have this problem the last time or if I just don’t remember. So I’m in bed for extra hours trying to get a good night sleep. 8 hours isn’t cutting it anymore. And even when I’m dead tired and I try to take a nap it doesn’t work. I just toss and turn.
I guess maybe that’s why I haven’t been on the computer. I just wasn’t up to it. And as Alan said, “what would you blog about? Every post would be about how crappy you’re feeling.” Alan’s right. I would have bored everyone to tears about my crappy days.
Well my slow tortuous days have just flown by for Alan. He’s been so wonderful. He has taken over everything: the cooking, the cleaning, the shopping, and Isabelle. He’s been so busy he can’t believe we’re halfway through with this pregnancy.
Alan would occasionally remind me that I’ve said before that I enjoyed being pregnant. When the hell was that?!? Well the answer would be: this far along, I guess, because I AM feeling better.
Now the nausea is manageable with food. Before, it wouldn’t go away no matter how often I ate. And my butt is actually not melded to the couch anymore, lately I’ve been up to leaving the house. Also sitting at the computer isn’t so vomit inducing anymore.
So I thought I’d pop in to say, hi, and let everyone know we’re doing fine. I tried to do that yesterday but was too bothered by seeing my winter banner. It’s warm now and we have the AC on and ack a snowy Christmas tree for a banner. NOOOO! I desperately wanted to draw something new but wasn’t up to it.
Instead I copped out and used the ultrasound I’ve been meaning to blog about since February. FEBRUARY! I made a new banner. Yay! After doing that and trying to catch up with emails I was too pooped to blog.
Today I still need to catch up on my emails but the task is so daunting I thought I’d blog first. I mean it has been ages since I’ve been on. And I’m sure you all want to know that we’re o.k. more than I need to catch up on my emails at this point since they are sooooo very embarrassingly old.
O.k. I’ve had enough of all this typing and sitting here. The baby is kicking and I need to feed the nausea away again. Catching up on emails will have to wait for later and hopefully my next post won’t take so long this time.
