Yes, it’s been about 2 1/2 years since my first was born, and I’m heading down this road again. Happy happy, joy joy! So far the nausea has been far worse than the first time, with a few seriously nasty dizzy spells to go with it. It’s still early, so we’re only beginning to announce the new pregnancy, but a few sharp-eyed friends and family members guessed even earlier. Like the time I told a gal pal about my sudden urge to snarf those waxy chocolate mini donuts? She took one look at me and said, “So you’re not knocked up or anything, are you?” I had to laugh. Yes, the random cravings are kicking in. So is the all-day “morning” sickness, the headaches, dizzy spells, and another round of sober holidays. Whoo hoo.

Let the whining begin.
