About 2 weeks ago, I start feeling really queasy. like, alot. like, all day. i figure i have the flu or something, and complain, but its not a huge deal, so whatever.
im talking to Elise, and mention it, and she jokingly says, "are you pregnant?"
i laugh, "yeah, sure, right."
but then..i start thinking about it.
...i cant remember having a period (sorry, TMI) in August. of course, that was during the time we were moving out here in the first place, and school was starting, and its possible im just crazy and have no memory.
but..i mention it to brandus, just in case. he blinks at me. "huh."
we discuss it. the craziness that would be the timing, how it would change current plans for staying or going next year, stuff.
the next morning, he goes out to the native store and haunts it til it opens.
there are no pregnancy tests. this is a Sunday, so the AC isnt open yet, so we sit and discuss things rather nervously. brandus has decided that im pregnant, and insists ive been having cravings and this explains everything.
the AC opens. Brandus goes.
NO TESTS. NO PREGNANCY TESTS ANYWHERE IN TOWN.
We discuss just..waiting. because in about a week, Aunt Flo is due for me, so..we should know by then, right?
yeah, i call my sister. "help! i need a pregnancy test!"
she laughs her ass off. says she will, because it would be an adventure, and really, she wants to know worse than brandus and i do.
nausea continues, but its less when ive had a snack and am eating nice bland things. like crackers. and plain cheerios. lots of plain cheerios.
we wait. brandus thinks im pregnant, but several other teachers are out sick, and one of them is puking, so..maybe im just sick.
i decide im pregnant. brandus thinks im just sick. and back and forth.
long story short (too late), the test got here, and was pretty much two lines from the second i put it down.
congratulations, internets! its a baby!
we go to anchorage on thursday for confirmation, but there were two tests, and i took them both. plus, still no Aunt Flo, so..whee!
PS. still really queasy. would like stomach temporarily removed.
