Another “One More Sleep” Post



So here I am, writing another one more sleep post. Tomorrow is my second ultrasound and I am nervous. I am also really nauseous which fills me with vomitous glee. And it seems to be steadily getting worse. I felt great this morning, had my smoothie and toast then went to brew the coffee. While the coffee did its thing I went and, ahem, did my morning thing fully expecting to feel fantastic afterwards. Not so much.

After my morning poo I laid on the couch with a cat as the world spun around me. I have done this before, however it is always the morning after a serious night of red wine drinking. Never is it after I have a smoothie and take a shit. Crazy. I’ve been in and out of vertigo ever since.

And you know what? I have never been happier to feel like garbage. This is not a whiny post, I promise. I’m over joyed that it takes a monumental act of congress to get my spinning head into the shower and then actually wash myself. I’m ecstatic that the smell of our unscented hand soap this morning made me want to barf. I’m so freaking happy that I’m pleasant one minute and moody & “challenging” the next. Seriously. Overjoyed.

So all this feeling bad gives me a tiny sliver of hope that tomorrow will be ok. I feel a smidgen of faith that perhaps there really is a baby in there with a good heart and all the proper chromosomes (no more, no less) and that maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to relax a little and talk about this in a few more weeks.


In other news, despite feeling like a turd all weekend I managed to get my new chair covers made. I photographed the process and am working on a mediocre tutorial. Oh my gosh sewing tutorials are a lot of work! I have an entirely new level of respect for sewing bloggers who post detailed tutorials on a regular basis. Y’all are super women!

Also on tap for this week is a whole lot of house cleaning. My parents, brother and sister-in-law will be coming to Lexington for Thanksgiving and I want our place to be sparkling. All the cleaning means I’ll be ready to photograph my sewing room makeover, too. I’ll run home on my lunch break one day this week to photograph it in natural light.

This is turning into a thought vomit post, isn’t it? I could ramble on for another 500 words or so, but I’m not sure you would want to read all my ramble so I’ll leave you with this glorious comic that a friend posted on her blog last week. Cheers and happy Monday to you all!

    As my hubs used to say, I’m so happy you feel bad, but I mean that in the nicest way possible 🙂 I felt hungover for 12 weeks. ick! (but yay!) Sending only positive thoughts your way for your ultrasound tomorrow. Take it easy with the cleaning this week–don’t push yourself too much and take as many breaks as you can. And drink tons of water or you’ll feel crampy and they you’ll be nervous that you feel crampy. At least from my own experience!

    yay! you’re getting worse too:) as JB’s hubs says ‘i mean that in the nicest way possible’. it’s gross, no? hung-over-feeling and hormonal at the same time but not at all ungrateful! only i think my husband could do with a little less crazy from me. i’m being totally unfair to him. he deserves some sort of award.

    can’t wait to see the sewing room pics and chair covers (when you’re up to it). happy holding-down [your food]!!!

    Yay for feeling hungover! Every time I start to feel whiny and irritated about how crappy I feel, I whip out my phone and watch/listen to the heartbeat I recorded at our last ultrasound. TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    I hope everything goes well at the ultrasound tomorrow – can’t wait to hear some good news!

    I am so glad that all the signs are there and getting stronger each day! I am also sorry that you feel so crappy, even when it is for such a good reason I think it still sucks. Looking forward to hearing the good news from your ultrasound tomorrow, we will al be there with you in spirit.

    It definitely still sucks to be sick, but…HOOORAY!!! I’m so totally thrilled for you and your spins the day before a stressful ultrasound! Take care of yourself and definitely don’t clean too much or work too hard. Not right now. It’s a good time to enlist the husband. Now’s his chance to contribute 😉 again 😉
