The reasons I know I am pregnant…
~ I barfed daily. Without medicine, I would have barfed way more than daily.
~ Some of my pants are held up and together with rubber bands. (For those of you who don’t know, loop around the button, loop through the button hole, loop back around the button. Wah-La!) Others are held up with maternity waist lines.
~ I am asleep on the couch or in bed by 9:00 each night. Sometimes earlier.
~ I ate 12 packages of fruit snacks in 3 days.
~ I have unsuccessfully “sucked in” for the past 10 weeks.
~ Only one room of the house is clean at any given time. Usually, no rooms are clean at any given time.
~ I want food and half way through eating it I really don’t want it anymore. Or I decide I want something else entirely.
~ My husband has to run to the grocery store while I make dinner because I have forgotten at least 2 main ingredients necessary RIGHT NOW.
~ I peed 3 times between 8 and 12 today.
~ I haven’t slept through the night in 16 weeks.
~ I must eat every 2 hours or I gag.
~ The smell of your chili you are eating for lunch makes me gag. Sometimes it also makes me want to eat your chili.
~ My sciatic nerve is killing me. And I’ve only gained 6 pounds.
~ My doctor told me I was pregnant, and I have to see her every month. We talk about pregnancy. I assume this is a sure sign.
~ I saw a baby wiggling around.
~ My insurance company did not cover the one above. (Thank you crappy health insurance.)
~ I’ve been told I’m due mid-April.
Yes, we are expecting an addition to our family. It is extremely exciting and joyous, while nerve-wracking at the same time. We are blessed beyond belief.
