Where have I been??

I had no idea that I hadn't posted since October 26. That is, until I started getting emails from various folks. Some were really nice, saying wonderful things of worry and concern. Others? They were a little more, um, forceful. I love my friends (but sometimes they scare me). The whole time, all I could think of was my utter lack of knitting and spinning content. I had absolutely nothing to blog about besides my homework. And if I don't find my homework interesting, then it is some pretty crappy blog material.

After my big week of homework I blogged about last time, I was so exhausted I slept all the time. 8 pm and time for prime time? I was snoozing on the couch. Time to write a paper (because it was due the next day). Face down on the bed, still in my work clothes. I thought I was just recouping from the monumental homework week.

I am not a smart girl, as can be seen. The evidence?

I found that I was more than 8 weeks pregnant.


(My little one, at 8 weeks and 6 days)


Some important parts of the picture:

-The big part under the word "Dad" is his/her head
-The arrow is pointing to an arm. When she took the picture, the little hand was waving at me!
-The dark spot a bit under the arm is the heart. It was beating so fast, and totally beyond "neat" to see it pulsating. I cried.
-At the end, the part that goes up near the top is the umbilical cord.

I have to tell you that I *never* believed that I was pregnant. It didn't matter that I haven't been able to eat a thing for four freakin' weeks without feeling like I'd yak it right back up. I thought it was an ulcer. An inability to stay awake if I sat still for more than five minutes? Well, it has been busy at work. No more sleeping on my stomach because the girls protested? That's just PMS...that lasted a month.

As I said, I am not bright. But holy crap, look what I have to look forward to.

Yay!
I can't wait to be Crazy Aunt Lisa again. Dibs on teaching the kid to flip the bird. And to properly spit. Cursing colorfully, that's mine, too. And a lot of other inappropraite behavior that will get me out of babysitting for a lifetime.
I couldn't be happier for you and Mr. CygKnit. Congratulations.

Congratulations. How exciting, a baby Cygknit! I totally get the exhaustion thing, I could barely move when I got home from work during my first trimester. You should get some energy back soon.

HOLY CRAP! Ummm... congratulations?

I'm glad you're taking it so well, and I hope that you have a wonderful pregnancy. I'd be freaking out, but that's because I'm a non-breeder.

Does your family know yet? I don't know much about you yet, but I know if I was pregnant my parents would set fire to the phone lines in their joy to spread the news.

OMG!! Fantastic! Wonderful! Congratulations!!

I just exclaimed "Oh no WAY!!" when I read your post, which had my Joshua going what? What?! I think all the neighbours know... :)

Have fun with the pregnancy, I hope it goes well for you. And in a way, how nice that you got to avoid realizing how yucky the first trimester can be. ;)

Big hug! *grin*

You should have some more energy in about, oh six weeks. ;) And oh, how I loved seeing the heart on those ultrasounds.
Congratulations!
