The two week wait

There is something called the two week wait.  It's a time between ovulation and being able to test for pregnancy.  I have about 6 more days before I can officially have anything register on a home pregnancy test.  I should wait longer, but I am impatient and want to know.

I have never been more exhausted than I have this week.  Falling asleep on the couch, at a baseball game, at my desk at work.  My husband thinks it's caffeine withdrawal.  I think it's because I'm baking a baby in my lady oven.

While I'm waiting, I have been reading all kinds of "don't use/eat/do this" articles and blogs about what you can and can't do while pregnant.  There is so much information out there and it is terrifying.  Apparently, not only is my deodorant/anti-antiperspirant going to kill my baby but it is also going to give me breast cancer!  And not only can I only drink maybe one can of Diet Coke a day (maybe--you know if I just have to impair my child because I'm selfish) but I have to find a kind that only contains sucralose and not aspartame otherwise I'm killing my baby.  I'm also off dairy which may have been the hardest.  Of course, no alcohol--this is the one I think my friends have enjoyed the most--I've been the designated driver like 4 times this week!  My husband supportively giggles as I order a sparkling water.  Yum!  We are making babies over here!

One thing I had not anticipated was the snuggling and extra kisses and love from husbando.  Those moments have been truly tender.  And Ralph has enjoyed all of this extra sleeping we've been doing.

In the mean time, I'm preparing for a bridal shower.  (SO EXCITED!)  I will be posting all kinds of event/party planning ideas coming up with tutorials and projects costs.  Stay tuned!
