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!
