This is not a drill. I found out on Thursday, and now a LOT of things make sense. The biggest of things being why I’ve been SO exhausted all the time!
This is definitely happy news. After about 15 minutes of panic, my boyfriend and I realized that ultimately this was what we wanted with each other (just a few years down the road!). The timing isn’t ideal, but it’s also not so bad. He graduates with a BS and starts full time in August with a great company. I’m now trying to graduate in December and then I’ll probably take some time to raise our little one. I’ll be 22 and he’ll be 23 when I have our baby so it’s not like we’re teenagers, we just feel a bit young.
As far as my over-programmed schedule goes: I’m cutting out almost all of it. I’m trying to make room just for classes so I have more time to sleep. I need so much sleep.
I’m about 7-8 weeks in so the morning sickness has started, and been not so great. I’ve been nauseous the last week and a half, and throwing up the last 3 days. The nausea is actually what led me to the store to buy pepto bismol, at which point I had this really strong feeling to go buy a test. Two home test positives and two doctor’s office positives later here I am.
Ginger ale is my best friend, and thankfully my boyfriend is being extremely nice to me and pretty much helping with anything he possibly can.
Speaking of him, we plan on getting legally married before baby, and having a ceremony likely Summer or Fall 2016.
There’s currently a lot on my to-do list such as scheduling my graduation date, finding a new apartment, telling our parents (we want to have a relative life plan set up), and maybe getting a job.
This blog may take an unexpected direction, but I will DEFINITELY need advice on what to buy for baby and what is not necessary. I know there will be many items either way, but if I can cut it down even a little that’d be awesome.
