*coming out*

I'm pregnant again! I've known for about 2 weeks and am around 6-7 weeks along. If you know me IRL, it's really hard to hide: Cranky, headaches, mood swings, emotional, cravings, nausea, starving all the time, things taste weird, tender girls, getting really bloaty ... Yeah.

I'm happy, though this was quite unexpected. We were on Clomid to get Little Mister ... and well, not this time. lol. The husband is adjusting to the news and told his folks over the weekend, so there you have it.

My first appointment is in a couple of weeks.

In other news, we've been feeling like one of the husband's medications was making him have more CHF symptoms. It's a diuretic, so is supposed to release excess fluid and improve the pre-CHF situation, but his fluid retention was getting super bad every single day instead of once in a while. His psychiatrist had prescribed another mood stabilizer which is supposed to help him drop weight but it was causing muscle pains -- she kept asking if he really needed the diuretic because it could cause muscle pains too. So, over the weekend (without telling me), he stopped taking the diuretic and started taking this other mood stabilizer. He hasn't swelled up since, and his moods are more ... stable ... He thinks it's acting like a diuretic and it is curbing his appetite, which is good since his other one increases his appetite.

Hmmp. Headaches, achy all over, nausea, things tasting weird... maybe I'm pg, too. As if! I'm sure it's just a virus in my case.

You know we're happy for you, kiddo.
