OK, here's my big excuse ...

I'm pregnant!

Unfortunately this has meant more than five weeks of complete bed rest, constant vomiting, and insurance company-induced headaches over disability coverage. It's also, as you may well imagine, an extremely exciting, nerve-filled phase of adjustment. Neither the adjustment nor the vomiting has ceased, but it's gradually becoming more bearable.

Hubby is making a Tofurky roast tomorrow, complete with mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry potato dumplings, and stuffing. He's also starting a pumpkin "cheese"cake. Despite all this "hypermesis" junk, I've been so hungry. If I don't eat every hour and a half or so, I get cranky and even more nauseous. Pretty much the only thing that's helped is consistently eating ... and maybe the ginger ale.

Hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving, and has something or someone to be thankful for.

WOO HOO! I get to be the first one to post my "Way to Go!" Oh, the excitment of having another heartbeat around the house, and how I long for it to not occur here quite yet.

Oh my! Congratulations! That's wonderful news.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Oh, how very exciting! I definitely agree that pregnancy is a big excuse, it should get you off the hook for just about anything. I hope you feel better soon.
