"A summer body is made in the winter."

I read this on facebook morning, and I just laughed and laughed.

Because, by the summer months this year, I'm going to be a whale!

I found out, three weeks ago, that I'm pregnant! It just so happened to be around Valentine's Day too, so I had a really great idea for how to tell Kevin.



I gave him the heart-shaped box and told him there was leftover candy in it from work, and he totally believed me. He was so shocked and happy!

Excitingly, Emily is pregnant at the same time. She's 14 weeks where I'm only 6 and a half weeks. That means our babies are only going to be a couple months apart! I'm kind of convinced that we're both going to have girls.

And we both live in the duplex now, it's just going to be great. Since I work at the school here, Kevin gets free tuition so he's going to go back and get his bachelor's during the night.

In terms of actually being pregnant, it hasn't been too bad so far. I found out at week 4, and before then I hadn't really been experiencing any symptoms. And I drank WAY too much coffee the first 4 weeks, not knowing.

Everything's been pretty normal, though. Nothing to make me too alarmed. Except, of course, when you read those books (like What to Expect When You're Expecting) and they outline everything that can go wrong, even the slightest little twinge can seem like a symptom of something terrible.

But I think I'm pretty much over that super anxious phase. My first appointment is two weeks from today, and I'm pretty confident that things are going well. It'll be a relief to go and have that confirmed, of course.

Week 6 is when the shit really started to hit the fan. I started week 6 with a little bit of a cold that I got from Kevin. So on the first day, I actually threw up while brushing my teeth. I decided that the mechanical toothbrush is a no-go for the next few months.

Tuesday was pretty rough, but I got over the cold in the afternoon.

Yesterday, it was pretty much nausea and no appetite all day. I dry-heaved in the evening, when Scott and Emily were over watching How I Met Your Mother with us. I got the award for Most Convincing Vomit Noise, though!

They say that the worse the symptoms, the better your chances of not miscarrying! So I'm just going to stay positive and hope that I don't accidentally heave at my desk while I'm withdrawing a student from his classes.

I'm excited to see what next week brings, and of course the week after that, the ultrasound! Eeeee!
