Is this morning sickness?

I've been waking up on my own at 6 a.m. every morning this week and not feeling well. Almost like that feeling of when you don't get enough sleep and you feel nauseated the next morning. I haven't "thrown up" yet (except for the morning a week or so ago when I ate the banana and threw up - before I knew I was pregnant). If this is any idea of what morning sickness might be like for me, I don't think I'll have much of a problem with it. But then again, I'm not quite at 6 weeks yet.... I'm sure I won't be so lucky as to not get sick at all. With the first pregnancy I didn't have any morning sickness, just hungry and tired all the time, and of course the unwanted spotting. This time I'm hungry, tired, boobs hurt, and I feel slightly nauseous in the mornings, and I'm paranoid and check for spotting all the time. There hasn't been a moment that has gone by that I haven't prayed for this little baby to stay with us this time around. I couldn't want anything more in life right now than for this to work out. The previous pregnancy, even though it was only 10 weeks, I always thought of that baby as being a boy. I told my sister in law the other night in an email that this time I keep thinking of a girl. But who knows! :) This is going to be a long 9 months that's for sure. We've been waiting a long time for this little life... :)

Worn Out

Day two of knowing that i'm pregnant, and I'm completely worn out. I think I spent most of today yawning and wondering when I could go home from work and sleep. :) My boobs have been sore as well. Read a little of my book "What to expect when you're expecting" it says by week 6 the morning sickness should kick in... wonderful, I can't wait. :)

A Day For Second Chances

We found out this morning (Sunday, February 21, 2010) that we're pregnant! I'm currently at 5 weeks, so it's still very early. August 2008 we were pregnant (it took a year to get pregnant) and unfortunantly had a miscarriage at 10 weeks. It took us over a year to try to get pregnant again, and finally after a few months of trying we've got our second chance at becoming parents. We're going to be praying hard to get through the next 5 weeks to get us past that 10 week point. Hopefully this time around things will be better. We've been wanting kids for a few years now, ready for it to actually happen for us.
