Rip Van ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...

I'm SO very, totally, absolutely sorry for not updating and possibly even worrying some of you. The truth is, I've been meandering through each of these recent days in a zombie-like state. Everything is fine so far. I feel kind of in limbo because I haven't had proof that things are still okay since my ultrasound two weeks ago, but since nothing has fallen out, I'm operating under the assumption that things are still hunky-dory. I feel a little naive for it, but I'm not beating myself up or anything.

I'm 10 weeks and 3 days today. Wow. Double digit weeks. That's exciting.

I haven't been as sick as I'd like, to be honest. But my one true symptom is exhaustion. On Saturday, I retired to the bedroom under the pretense of watching a stupid Lifetime movie. Those aren't allowed to air on the living room television, at least when Zube Boy is around. Apparently, my husband found me out cold at 6:30PM. And I didn't stir until 7:30AM. With the time change. Thirteen hours of sleep. Sheesh. I am a very lame wife these days. And blogger.

We've taken to calling Odd a new name. The Turtle. I like to think of our little fetus (whee, supposedly it's gradiated from embry status) as The Odd Turtle. And seriously, in the first ultrasound? I'm totally carrying a turtle. Without the shell, of course, because that would be biologically impossible.

I don't have much to say. I have another ultrasound on Wednesday. I'm biding my time until then. The folks around Zube Boy and I seem to be getting really excited. I guess I'll let them do it for us. 'Cause we're simply not there yet. We're still living in Things Could Still Go Wrong Land. Self preservation. Sometimes the excitement in my wake makes me nervous. But other times is nice. Nice and normal, I should think. Maybe we should be getting excited. Soon enough. Two more weeks and I might be breathing a little easier.

Meanwhile, we're just hanging out. Catching some ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ's.

Take care.

16 Leg Humps:

Don't be too hung up on not being "sick" enough. I didn't have nausea with any of my pregnancies, and had a 9lb 2oz boy and a 6lb 0 oz boy (he was sure a breeze after giving birth to the nine pound baby!).

I often think that if I'd been sick during my pregancies, I wouldn't have gained so much. But then, I could have something to do with the TWO Big macs I enjoyed on a weekly basis...

Big macs? For Christ's sake... I hate big macs.

I'm so glad everything is going well so far. I have a girlfriend at work that is NEXT on my baby vibes list. We need to get you over this hump so I can move my energy to her (tee hee). I already told her that you're first. ;)

Glad to hear things are still progressing positively. But I am probably going to be very mad at you later today, because I'm going to have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles song stuck in my head at least until this afternoon . . .

Hey, if your body says rest - then rest! Its not often you have a bonafied reason to be lazy!

Miss Cellania said...

Enjoy the freedom and excuse to sleep as much as you want, because it may be your last chance for a couple of decades. I'm serious! Thanks for updating us; you've got a lot of people pulling for you.

I think you are beyond safe. Another big symptom that my mom used to remind me of was this....you didn't have a period. THAT is your main symptom.

Hugs.

Awesome!

I slept the entire first three months of the pregnancy. I felt nauseated once when I smelled coffee grinding - but never threw up.

This could be why I gained a lot, too ... HMMMMMMMMMM! :)

Glad to hear it is all going so well!

Silly me, I've been trying to think up names that include ODD in them. The only one I came up with is Audrey. Anyways, I know I don't comment but I do lurk and I've been checking up on you a lot to make sure that you are still ok. My husband and I are both anxious for this to work out for you and so we watch and wait and hope and pray. We're still here.

Happy to hear things are still going well. Happy Halloween to the Zube clan!

Moo Moo said...

I was never sick, just slept ALLLLLLLLLL the time. So I am so excited for you! :)

Have a happy Halloween!

Chickie said...

I had a comment but Phil's song is all I can hear in my head now.

Glad to hear the everything's still sticking!

Ghost Blogger said...

Ohhhh... You're pregnant!! Congrats :)

Rainypete said...

You'd better hope there remains no shell or you could be in serious trouble later on!!

As for the tired, enjoy it. Sooner or later you'll be unable to sleep due to the various aches and displacement of your innards by said turtle.

As always, congrats and a silent prayer for you three.
