I should've known not to trust Madigan. lol
So, yea. Are you ready for baby #2- Mommyhood readers? Cause like it or not, he/she is on the way! lol
I was at school yesterday and was feeling really crappy. In fact, I'd been feeling this way for at least the last 2 or 3 weeks. Just really tired [no matter how much I slept], really irritable, and just all around "off". In class this week, I was having a hard time getting a good breath to sing. I'm singing a lot of soprano [or high] parts and I need to breathe for it. Tuesday, I had chest pains. And yesterday, I actually had to sit down off and on during class. It wasn't bueno.
After class, I walked down to QFC and bought a test. I figured, "Once it's negative, I can tell my doc that something is up". So I went back to school and down to the basement bathroom, peed on a stick, and waited. I was jammin to my ipod when I looked down and had to focus my eyes on what I saw.
This was the dialogue:
Me: "are you...huh? what....omg."
Me: "oh shit. [running around the basement]
Test: "yes, idiot. you're pregnant!"
Me: "what do i do? [still running around]
Test: "call someone....PREGNANT"
Okay, so not really, but you get the idea. lol
I called my sister and told her not to freak out or have a reaction since she was right next to my parents. I wasn't ready to tell them. I wanted it to be somewhat special and unexpected. And since my sister was the first person [after charlie] to know I was pregnant with Austin, it just felt right. She was excited and prompted me to take a picture of the test next to a note that says, "Congratulations" and shoot it out for everyone to see. Everyone was excited. I was shocked. And still am.
Now I've gotta start rereading all of my baby books. This is going to be fun.
I admit, I was relieved that I "wasn't pregnant". I didn't get all wild and crazy on my birthday like I said I would. But since finding out, there hasn't been a moment where I've been unhappy about the recent change of events. I'm excited that Austin is going to be a big brother. I'm excited for the new baby and hoping for a little girl. And I'm even excited that I will be a SAHM for good once the baby gets here. No more slaving away over hot 'spresso macheeens. lol .
But I'm craving some applesauce like something fierce and there's none in the house. So I'm going to either go to bed or send Charlie to the shoppette. lol
