Hi all, just popping in to say hello. Still pregnant. Sort of waiting to see if this one sticks. I think it's going to work out, but every time I feel a little twinge it makes me nervous. I just want to be further along so I can breathe a little easier. Not really super excited, although I have had the urge to knit some little pink booties. I'm hoping for a girl.
Doing ok with the reduction in the Wellbutrin dosage, although hubby seems to be asking me frequently "Are you ok?" after I might have been a little irritated about something. I told him last night it bugs me because it makes me feel like he's afraid I'm going to explode on him. And I really didn't feel like I was being a big jerk or anything. Ugh. Basically I told him this is how it's going to be for the next 8 months or so, and to get used to it. I'm not sure he liked that answer. Haha. But he seemed to think the better of commenting on it. Sometimes I wish he would just spit out whatever he's thinking, but then at the same time I'm sure if he did I might have to unleash Armageddon on him.

Hang in there baby! (All of you.)

Great news, I'm keeping you in my thoughts. And don't forget: Inhale. Exhale.

Thanks J and D.
I took another pregnancy test just to see, and the second line came out nice and dark so that reassures me that things are progressing. Just waiting for Friday to talk to my doc. Did pick up some Rescue Remedy (homeopathic stuff for anxiety/stress) and it seems to be helping the moodiness.

That's good! Just do whatever it takes to reassure you. Glad to hear things are progressing.
So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.
