It's Been an Interesting Christmas.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and that Santa was nice to you all. So what did I get this year for Christmas?

The stomach flu.

Have you ever sat on the toilet and threw up in the bathtub? I have.
Have you ever pooped yourself three times in one day? I have.
I spent the wee hours of Sunday morning in the Emergency room getting an IV of fluids since I couldn't keep anything in me including water or pedialyte. It was ever so much fun. I normally wouldn't have gone to the ER, I would have toughed it out. This year however I felt that I had to go because of my other Christmas present....

I'm pregnant.

I know! We're pretty excited. And to think we did this one all by ourselves. We stopped all fertility treatments in June. I kinda feel like I should ask for a refund, but I just don't care anymore. I'm only 8 weeks along so it's pretty early, but I think the last few weeks of keeping a secret have been KILLING my mother.

So that's it.

What did you get for Christmas?

I knew it! Some of your twitter updates lately made me go, "I think she's pregnant." But I wasn't going to say anything...

Congrats! Hope you're 100% better.

That sounds almost as bad as the Christmas two years ago when I couldn't make it to the bathroom and vomited salsa and hot chocolate down the stairs . . . *cringe* Congratulations on the pregnancy though, that is something to celebrate!

Oh wow, congrats!! I don't think anything tops that Xmas present (although I did get $200 in cash from my mom? lol).

Yay!!!!!!! I'm so excited for you and you husband!!!

When you left the comment on my blog about reading while you still had the chance, I was thinking that you might be pregnant, but I didn't want to come right out and ask you. This is such wonderful news, Sarah!!

Happy New Year!!
