A heart to heart....

Heart to Heart

Okay dear computer, it is time you and I had a heart to heart.  I know you feel neglected.  I know I don't stroke your keys as much as I use too.  I haven't frequented many of my favorite sites; much less added any words to my own.  Heck, I hardly check my email.

I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW.....

I still love you.  In fact, I miss reading all the amazing posts from the wonderful people in life.  I even miss adding some of my own words to the world wide web. I don't know if I miss checking my email,  But...( you knew there would be a  BUT)   I FEEL LIKE CRAP!!

I have not felt well for 6 weeks now.  Here are my SYMPTOMS...

nausea

tiredness

emotional

weariness

constipation

foggy brain

lack of motivation

serious sinus problems

Have you guessed my condition yet?

I AM PREGNANT!!

I must apologize to all my blogdom friends.  I miss you, but I just can't get myself off the couch.  I hang my head over the porcelain throne a lot too.  The good news is... this too shall pass.  I expect to feel sick for 4-6 more weeks.  Not to long right?  That's only what 28-42 more days.  AHHH... that's an eternity.  Oh, well I can survive.

On a happier note, we are thrilled.  We are expected to have a Halloween baby.  Due date: October 31.  I am 10 weeks pregnant.

Now to answer the big question:  WAS THIS A SURPRISE?

NO

This was very much planned.  In fact, we have planned all of our little kiddos.  Yes, this means that I will have 4 kids under the age of 7 .   But as Jonathan pointed out the other day, that also means that they will all leave the house 7 years after the 1st one leaves.  Actually, that is kind of a sad thing. 

Anyway, Jonathan and I have had an amazing journey in the few months that we planned for this little one.  I wrote about it several times in my personal journal along the way.  I will share parts of those entries in the next few days to kind of fill you in on the whole spiritual process of it all.

I feel blessed for the opportunity to have another child, and I can't wait till the 2nd trimester when the old Andrea comes back to stay. 

Hopefully, I am back to the blog world for good now.  All I could think to share about over the last month was how sick I felt... and I wasn't quite ready to lay that out on the table yet.

So now you know where I have been; (couch, porcelain throne.)

I am looking forward to reconnecting with my dear friends.

Congratulations! I knew it- as soon as you blogged about being in a funk I thought "She sounds pregnant!" Hope you start feeling better soon & can't wait to meet the next baby Swenson. (I hope it's a girl! Another little Stella- I just love her!) Congratulations! It's a lucky little one to be born into your family :)

Marli Jo said...

Hooray!! I am so excited for you, and just a little jealous, there is nothing sweeter than a new baby!

I hope the next couple of weeks go quickly, so you can start feeling better.

Elise said...

Yay! I actually heard a while ago, but didn't want to let the cat of the bag before you decided to tell...congratulations! You are better than me...4 under 7 sounds very tiring!

Stephanie said...

Hooray! Hooray! I'm so happy for you and will be even happier for you in a few weeks. I'm looking forward to hearing your experiences. It was great talking to you! Ok, you really need to go get the "Sea Band" things. I've decided that they work. When I have them on I just feel like I'm going to barf, when they're not on I do barf! :) Call me in a couple weeks! (You could call me before too!)

Now that's EXCITING news!! I'm so happy for you all!! October is such a great time to have a baby too...right before the Holidays :)
Take Care of yourself!!

Krysta said...

Congratulations my friend!! Aren't you glad to just be at this point? You're almost through with the sickies. Pretty soon we won't be calling eachother everyday to see what sounds good for lunch and comparing our horrible days.

I'm glad the old Andrea is right around the corner. What will it even be like to feel normal again? Maybe our husbands are more excited about that than we even are. Could it be possible??? Hang in there!

Well to me I think you are probably feeling slightly better if you are on the computer, that's a good thing. I was kinda worried about you for awhile. But like I said you will make it and in a week we can take good care of your kids for 2 WHOLE WEEKS, YAH!!! Can't wait to see you and I couldn't be happier to have a new nephew or niece!
