almost a month later...

.... and i decide to update. i'm a jerk. what can i say.

I made my first appointment with the midwife. I will see her at the end of April. I don't understand prenatal care at all - I mean, really, can they honestly tell how the baby is doing by checking my weight and blood pressure? (okay, I get the blood pressure thing, but still.) Personally, I would do a completely unassisted pregnancy if I could. The midwife requires that I meet her a couple times before attending the birth, so you do what you gotta do. (I am not comfortable with an unassisted childbirth.)

So. I'm technically 9 weeks 5 days. I am still battling constant nausea, and the fact that I have allergies isn't helping - every time I sneeze, it makes me dry heave. I only have another, oh, four months to look forward to this though. :-/ No, not that long, really. I usually have morning sickness till 20 weeks or so. So I have ten weeks to go. Yay.

No one knows I'm pregnant yet. I haven't told anyone, except The Hub. The kids don't know, my mom doesn't know, no one knows. I am not going to tell anyone till I absolutely have to. Luckily, I don't tend to show until after 20 weeks, so I have some time to go. I might chicken out and act like I never knew I was pregnant, and tell them "Oops, I got a positive test so they did a ultrasound, you will never believe it but I'm six months along!"

I am such a baby.


  1. here's to hoping the nausea gets better really soon! morning sickness is the worst...

  2. I hope you buck the norm and nausea ends today! It's awful isn't it? I had one nausea free pregnancy and it was the one time I understood about truly enjoying the process. I always enjoyed parts of it but the whole thing, not so much.

    Unplanned uh? Lots of mixed emotions first was unplanned too..tough times
