I drank the water

Do you remember that proverbial "something in the water" I was talking about? Well, apparently it is no joke. And I drank it. That's right. You can add me to list of every Tom, Dick and Harry that I know that all have buns in the oven :)

As you can imagine, we are over the moon. The part I am not so looking forward to is the suicidal nausea I suffered with my pregnancy with Brynn. I practically had to be talked down from the ledge. My doctor told me I will be fine as long as I keep snacking all day and night to keep my blood-sugar level up. Normally, I am a three-meal-a-day-kind-of-girl, but I am following doctor's orders and I am snacking like I have never snacked before. But, I can still feel's lurking...bubbling under the surface...waiting for me to let my guard down so it can rear its ugly, green head. I may gain 100 pounds this time, but I am going to feel good, darnnit.

Brynn was so excited when we told her the news, that she actually asked me to take her picture. That was a first. I think she just liked her funky outfit she put together all by herself. Needless to say, she is pumped to be a big sis. Can you tell?

I'll try not to complain to all of you too much about how yucky I feel. I am really hoping this pregnancy is going to be super different from my first one. I would so love to actually enjoy it. Truth be told, it is so obviously worth it otherwise no one would do this ;)
Happy Sunday!
