I'm Alive!

I should be honest and say that I am so tired, that the title was first put in at "I'm Alice!"

I won't even apologize. Though, I am sorry. I have been so swamped with work (at work and home) that I literally haven't had a moment to blog. Sure, I could have written up a post on my cell phone, but I probably would have done that while in the car... and that isn't very safe. Seriously, I haven't really had time to do what I enjoy to do on my lunch break anymore (which is blog, and eat- though I manage to "snack" throughout the day... which is probably a lot healthier anyway).

So a few updates...

Alice turned 11 months old yesterday. I am planning on doing her 10 month (I'm HORRIBLE) and 11 month posts together.

I have 6 weeks and 1 day left of work. I have a little less than 3 weeks to my first prenatal appt (that seems soooo far away when you are wondering if everything is okay, etc. I know you moms know what I mean).

I am so exhausted. I literally nod off when I pump at work. In fact, I am sure I could lay my head down and be out in a few seconds. Why is bedtime so far away? I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Alice is still waking about 3 times a night and seems like she is nursing constantly. That takes a large toll on a body; making milk and all. I'm not surprised that I'm this tired. My body is doing a lot these days (or I hope it still is).

Which brings me to my next thing. I have been feeling really pretty well. Granted, I am only like 5 weeks and a few days, and there is plenty of time for nausea, etc to kick in (and I'm sure I'll kick myself in the rear for complaining about no m/s), but I hate that uneasy feeling before symptoms start appearing. Aside from the fatigue, low milk supply, occasional dizziness, lack of appetite, and incredible thirst I really wouldn't suspect much. Oh, I wish I just knew if I should continue to get excited or not. I really don't want to get my hopes up and then be crushed.

Speaking of low milk supply, I found a tincture from Motherlove called More Milk Two. It is specially for pregnant and lactating mothers. I ordered the 8 oz bottle and I hope I get it SOON.

I'm sure there is a lot more going on, but to be honest my mind is clouded with sleepy, tired thoughts. Who knows what kinds of ramblings you may get in the upcoming days/weeks. I only hope that I keep those of you that read this blog around in the meantime.

Oh, and out of curiosity, what kind of stuff do you want to know about me or my family? Or that you want me to blog about? I know I have been pretty generic with family/baby/work posts, but there is lots more to me/us. If you have any questions or things you want to know more in depth please let me know.

I want to know more about that awesome sister of yours....

Hmmmm. What are your three most valued possessions? Or three things you couldn't live without (people excluded). Or two historical figures you'd like to see box each other. Go!

I bet you are exhausted. Waking up several times a night AND making a baby is a lot of work! Feel better soon!
