sweet relief

I can’t tell you how much better I feel knowing that you all know what I know. The secret-keeping, it was killing me. Whoorl was the only one who knew my secret because when she and I met, we had been planning to go out for martinis for weeks. Having just found out the news two days before we met up, there was no way I could show up at the bar and just pretend that I suddenly didn’t feel like drinking a martini. “Oh, no, vodka-soaked olives sound absolutely DREADFUL right now, I’ll just have a club soda.” Uh, yeah. Not very in character. So, I greeted her and immediately spilled the beans.

I’ve been feeling pretty good. I had a couple of queasy weeks, just like I did the last time, but it seems to be dissipating nicely now that I’m almost 10 weeks along. Even two weeks of minor queasiness makes you feel miserable. I can’t imagine how people with severe nausea cope with it. I would die. As it is, I’m just fine as long as I eat all the time. My key to pregnancy happiness involves multiple breakfasts, at least one of which MUST involve bacon. What can I say, I’ve gotta have the bacon.

In other news, I found a preschool for Evan, and he starts there in a couple of weeks. THAT was stressful. Next on my stress list? Potty training, and moving him into a big bed so the crib will be available for the baby. If I had my way, I’d have him sleep in a crib forever. There’s something to be said for the containment. It comforts me.

Glad to hear you are "out of the ill woods!"

I would keep Rt in a crib too if he would let me. Our first order of business is moving him to the other room. Then, potty training/big boy bed etc.....Hopefully, it will all go smoothly over a course of a long time. ha!

What are you going to do first? Potty training or big boy bed?

Good luck!! Wow, preschool. So big!

I think potty training is really the turning point in any human's existence. That little tot of yours is going to be a marvel of domesticity in no time! :)

Congrats!! I'm sorry I was perhaps the last to know, but that's such wonderful news!!

I totally dragged my feet on the crib to bed thing. We kept our son in his until the last possible minute. My daughter, another story. She would pile her blankets on the floor and take a flying leap out of the crib. My son still likes to "contain" himself in his bed. Lining up stuffed animals and pillows all around.

Found you via Whoorl, congrats on your exciting news!

I have quite some time before I have to worry about either of the potty training or big boy bed hurdles but am already preparing myself.
