Update

I don't know that I'd consider this an official post but rather a shout out to let you guys know that I'm still here, even though I haven't posted much lately.

As most of you know I am pregnant with baby #2. This pregnancy has been very different from my first and I am trying my best to adjust to that. Recently, I was having eye troubles and saw a specialist about it. I learned I had a small clot in my retinal artery. Because of this I now have to have a series of tests to see if this was just a one time deal or a part of a bigger blood disorder. I am trying not jump to any conclusions until all the tests come back, but as any mother knows this is sometimes hard to do.
Also making things stressful is my insurance company. Since these tests are expensive and not considered a part of routine care, they have to be pre-authorized. So I have spent the last week and a half on the phone back and forth with my doctors office and insurance company trying to figure out if they would cover these tests.

All the stress of that has run me down folks.

Lately all I feel is sick.
I am nauseous. I have no appetite. And my body aches.

Most days I wonder what the cause of all this ickiness is.
Stress?
Is it just the pregnancy wearing me down?
Is it because of my lack of sleep due to the fact that my husband snores all night and our mattress is way beyond it's "best by" date?
Am I feeling this way due to some disorder I have??

So that, my friends, is why I haven't posted much. The energy that I do have most days is saved for a cute little man with his mama's blue eyes. And whatever is left after that goes to my understanding and extremely helpful husband.
Honestly, some days the computer is the last thing on my mind. Especially the thought of sitting down and typing something. But I am still here. And I love reading all your posts and commenting on them when I can.

I am hoping that these tests give me some answers in the next few weeks so that I can go back to feeling like myself again. Until then, I'll post when I can!
