I have really got to stop trying to go back to school. Every time I get enrolled and started, I get pregnant. Never mind that we’d been trying for 18 months and our marriage was about to fall apart. Oh no… this Little had other plans. lol. I’m only eight weeks right now, so it’s still early and really anything could happen, but so far things are going well. Well enough in fact that I felt ready to share the news. We’ve known for a while now, but I wanted to wait just to make sure nothing happened. We’re still not quite out of the woods, but it’s close enough and things are continuing on the right track.

It really was a blessing in disguise. Our relationship was still fairly strained after our separation in September, but one date night later we found ourselves in this situation. OOPS. Regardless of how or why Little 2 came along, Hubs has really gotten his act together here recently. It was like a light bulb went off when I showed him the pregnancy test. We had been joking about it for a while since the same situation happened with my school and our fist Little, but never in a million years did I imagine that it would actually happen. I took the test just for kicks because I was a few days late. I’d been horribly sick with that nasty flu bug that was going around for like three weeks so I assumed my body just wasn’t ready, but then BAM. Positive test. I was so excited I jumped up and ran into the bedroom where hubs was sleeping and woke him up, waving the test around in his face. I was so excited in fact when I first saw that little plus sign that I didn’t actually wait the full two minutes or whatever for an accurate test result, which I realized after the shock wore off. This picture is actually of my second test, which I took later that evening which much to my surprise and excitement was actually MORE pronounced than the first one once I waited the full two minutes. lol.

SO, that’s what’s going on in my life at the moment. Trying to figure out if I’m going to be able to get ready for another kid, and stay enrolled in my classes. The morning sickness with Little 2 has been ATROCIOUS, and I am so much more exhausted. I really don’t remember being this tired while pregnant with my first, but of course while I was pregnant with my first I wasn’t also chasing a toddler around the house and trying to keep up with school, the gym, and all of the house work. We’ll see what happens if I make it out of the first trimester. I’m trying not to get used to the idea of having a second kid just yet, just because I don’t want to be disappointed… but that’s not really working out too well at the moment. lol.
