Damn you garlic!

Oh god, so ill!

I went out to lunch yesterday. I ordered a pesto pizza that I ate about half of, along with some bread and some of my friend's salad. I have the leftovers today for lunch. I ate a piece mid morning as a snack.

Turns out, there was a TON of garlic in the pizza that didn't come through as clearly yesterday.

Garlic is not my friend. It's still the most nausea inducing food this pregnancy (although bacon is ok this time around, at least mostly). I feel so very sick right now.

Damn you garlic!

Announcement Day!

Happy Labor Day! This is the day I'm officially announcing that.....I'm 13 weeks pregnant and into my second trimester! Really, today!

Now, for the real "I'm pregnant" post, that I wrote the day I found out.

Hello. Today is Wednesday June 29th, and today I found out that I am pregnant again.

Let me explain. My period has been going for maybe 5 months? I've forgotten at this point. I knew I could theoretically get pregnant, and that was a good thing. Eric and I wanted our kids to be spaced about 18 months apart! So that would put me at having one more period before finding out I was pregnant at the beginning of august.

My last period started June 6th. That means it's been 23 days. That's really quick to find out you're pregnant again. We weren't trying, but we weren't exactly not trying either. Why did I bother testing today, so close to my last period? I just had a feeling yesterday. First it started with me wanting TONS of fruit over the last two days, something prominent at the beginning of my last pregnancy. Then last night I thought "oh man, my skin is bad. Am I pregnant? I'll pee on a stick in the morning", but I didn't really do any math, I just had a feeling.

What's my reaction? Well, my literal first words to my husband were "Oh F*ck, I'm pregnant again." I mean, it's only one month early, why am I so bothered? I'm not really, I'm just scared. I'm also sad because it means I'll be 4.5 months pregnant at my friend's wedding in October, where I'm a bridesmaid. Who knows what that dress will look like now!

But I'm logged into baby center again, and the due date is sometime early march. Based on my last period, it's March 11th, the same day as original due date with my first miscarried baby. However, since I found out that I'm pregnant 23 days into my cycle, I imagine the date will be probably a week earlier than that in March. I'll update after seeing my OB and getting an estimate based on the size of the baby.

It's also worth noting that I miscarried after about 3 weeks for both my miscarriages. So for now, I'm keeping quiet, to maybe everyone? Haven't decided. Not telling anyone besides Eric today anyway.

Are we almost sleeping through the night?


Last night Scott went to bed at 8pm (per the norm).

At 10:30 he woke up. I got out of bed and had made it to the kitchen to prepare a bottle when he stopped crying. Huh. Ok, back to bed!

At 1:30 he woke up. This time I got a bottle, and filled it with water and he fell back asleep! This is exciting! Back to bed.

At 3:30 he woke up. This time I managed to prepare a bottle. I think if I had just left him for another 30 seconds he would have gone back to bed. But since he's use to eating in the middle of the night, I thought, ok, I'll give you the bottle. By the way, we've completely weaned, and we're trying to cut out night bottles, so at this point, his bottles are half strength formula. We're working toward just water bottles in the middle of the night. So I gave him the bottle and it didn't actually put him back to sleep. So I just put him back in his crib. By the time I washed out the bottle, and climbed back in bed, he had basically stopped crying already and fallen asleep.

At 6am he woke up again. This time I made the bottle and brought him to bed with me. Yesterday he woke up for the day at 6am so I wanted him to be as comforted as possible and sleep longer.

At 8am we both got up for the day.

So, moral of the story, Scott may be getting close to sleeping through the night. AMAZING!

Now we just need to stop crying for 1 minute a few times a night, because that still wakes me up!
