And, I’m BACK.

I have received so many emails, phone calls, FB messages and real life questions about why I haven’t been blogging.  I was quite overwhelmed by your concern, actually.  Thank you for your thoughts!  I realize I kind of dropped off the face of the earth there for a while…..

The reason for my unexpected absence is that I’m unexpectedly PREGNANT.  Well, it’s not totally unexpected, but certainly against all odds.  (If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you know what I mean, if not…check out my last post on this topic: Maybe One?)

I am excited to report that I’m 10 weeks along, due in late January!

I realized I was pregnant while we were on vacation in Kauai (there was really no mistaking those symptoms!).  I stayed in denial about it for about a week (okay, maybe I’m still a bit in denial).

When we went in for our viability ultrasound at 7 weeks, we braced ourselves for the worst (namely, another ectopic pregnancy) as I was having some intense pain on my right side.  I was honestly preparing myself to be sent straight to the hospital for surgery.  I was that convinced things were all wrong.  Needless to say we were floored to see a strong and healthy heartbeat and to be measuring right on track!  The pain?  That was a cyst.  Ouch.

I went back to the doctor again today, once again trying NOT to be concerned about some severe cramping I had over the weekend.  Once again, I was surprised and happy to see a perfectly healthy heartbeat and a tiny Baby Apple that was quite active.  I’m still measuring right on track, and all seems to be well, so I thought it was time to share my happy news with you!

The nausea and exhaustion have been particularly awful this time around (worse than ever before), but I’ve been taking comfort in those symptoms.  However, since I can’t keep my eyes open past 8:30 and I’ve been napping when The Littlest Apple naps, my blogging came to a screeching halt.  It hasn’t helped that The Littlest Apple is at home for the summer, bouncing off of the walls (and me).  That being said, I’ve been really missing my blog, and I’m hoping to get back on track!  I hope you’ll stick around and thanks again for all of your kind emails!
