24 Hours

That's how long to our ultrasound tomorrow. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. Despite some low moments over the last couple of weeks [spotting incidents], I still feel pregnant and optimistic.

What does pregnant feel like for me? Tired and like a couch potato. I have spent more time on my sofa in the last two weeks than I think in the last two months. My normal energizer bunny mode has been seriously shut down. It is not easy for me to adjust. I still feel like there is a hundred million things I should be doing, but I just have to keep remembering that it isn't all about me any more.

My biggest struggle right now is to drink enough water and eat enough vegetables when all I really want is sweet, sugary things, especially when all my vices are gone. Clay said I looked like Zamboni the other night when the wine was poured at the table and I had that hang dog look. I know it's a small sacrifice, but it's hard to find a replacement for the flavor of wine. A lot of people drink for the buzz, I actually drink because I enjoy the taste.

Stay tuned.


  1. good luck and all your sacrifices are totally worth it .

  2. Maybe there's something in here you'd like:

    And with 20 maraschino cherries, the Autumn Gold Punch can probably satisfy those sweet cravings, too...
