Two Lines

EQUALS

Two weeks of a blogging hiatus. (and surely more)

Two years of waiting.

Two man hands making dinner every night.

Two hundred dollars in groceries that dad can cook.

Two swollen and sore female body parts.

Two more months of puking to look forward to.

Two wishes for twins.

Too old for this.

Too long before he will touch me again.

And two HUGE shout outs for all your prayers.


I had a miscarriage at nine weeks last Spring
and so I hesitate to announce this.
But my readers have been worried,
and you know I will do anything for my readers.
I just couldn't leave them worried that The Purple People Eater ate me up.
(although his party put me out of commission for a good 24 hours afterward)
And, to tell you the truth, I wasn't this sick last time.
And it's just too much energy to hide it.
So, if it doesn't work out,
you are all invited to mourn with me.
But, for now, be happy that you don't got two lines!
It ain't fun in the beginning.
I'll keep you posted.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so very excited and happy for you. I truly do hope that this all works out. I cried a bit I am so happy, but maybe I will blame that on my own two lines ;) I know how it feels to be sick and I hope and pray that they can give you something for it Reglan, Zofran, ANYTHING. You and LG and the Girls and THE BABE will be in our prayers. Hugs!

Chantay Young said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so very excited for you! Keeping you in my prayers.

Do the girls know? If so what did they say??

Lindsey Rose said...

I KNEW IT!!!!! I really had a feeling after I got off the phone with you on Sunday. I thought to myself, she sounds so tired, hmm, I bet she is pregnant!!!! Oh I am so excited for you, really, that is so wonderful. Do you need Zofran?? You know I have some, Oh I am so excited! You will definitely be in our prayers!

cally said...

HOORAY!

For you, and because I don't have to keep a secret. I've been dying inside all day.

And hey, I offer this to everyone but no one's taken me up on it yet...I've got vials of liquid zofran in my fridge. Granted, it's 20 months old and you have to inject it into your bloodstream, but don't complain. It's too expensive to throw away.

Only the best for you, Ali.

Katy Beth said...

Yay! Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. I know how hard it is sometimes, with the morning sickness & all. If you need anything at all, please let me know! We love you guys!!

Jen Guthrie said...

Renee said...

Congratulations and take care of yourself!

Kathy said...

Yippee! Congrats. I'm glad you posted I was getting worried and was thinking about you all day today. I had great intentions of emailing to check on you.

You and your sweet little baby are in my prayers. And you're not too old yet - I just had one and I'm even older than you! :)

I'm sorry you are sick...but don't they say that's a good sign?

Love you girl!!!

RedefinedPossibilities said...

Well, hopefully this episode will keep you laughing when your head is out of the toilet for a good nine months. Congrats!

sherry said...

I didn't know you were trying. Congrats. It sounds like you are looking for a boy. I hope so for your sake but you make beautiful girls.

[Somebody Loved] said...

Shock & Awe!
Not because you are a prego... but because I had NO clue... well I have been clueless most of my life.
Congratulations! I am sorry about the sick thing... my sister is going through what she calls... 'all day sickness' she would love to just have morning sickness. NO wonder you haven't blogged... I thought you fell off the blogosphere... I e.mailed a couple times... no answer? I am so happy for you all.

WAHOOOOO!!!! I am so happy for you all. I hardly got to visit with you last week (it's impossible at a b-day party) -- but I have been worried about your absence and now I know where you've been.

Hope you feel better soon and I will keep you in my prayers. If you need ANYTHING you better call me!

Huge congrats Alice! And thanks again for the invite to the b-day party! The kids had fun (and thanks for getting the Purple People Eater song stuck in my head forever...I was just singing it this morning...LOL)

a wynn wynn situation said...

woooooo-hoooooo! Go Alice! and, um LG, too! That is some seriously exciting news and only you could post something that cool to out your expecting news. Loved it and just can't wait to read all about it over the next months!

Renee said...

Congrats.

Becca said...

Oh my goodness!!!! I am so excited for you! I bet this one is a boy. I am sorry to hear that you're sick, though. I'm not going to tell you that there's anything that will fix that or make it go away because thinking like that only made it more frustrating for me. I will, however, help with kids, or send some husband-friendly recipes over!!!! Really, I would love to help. I've got the energy for it! Congrats!!!!

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

Congratulations! So sorry you've been so miserable. I wish I could come over and help take care of you, Alice!

Thanks for posting and letting us all know. More prayers can only benefit you.

Lori said...

Are you kidding me??? Alice, you did not show it at all at the purple party. You were just your usual throwing-the-coolest-kid-party-ever self. I'm so happy for you! Congratulations!

Yo Mamma said...

HEY TO!!!!! Congratulations. I hope it's twins. But boys make you sick, too.

Trisha said...

Congratulations!! Take it one day at a time. Take some real ginger for the nausea. There is a ginger called Reed's Ginger Ale that has real ginger in it! It's wonderful. Remember to drink lots of water and get lots of rest. Take care of yourself and RELAX!! Be strong!
I love and miss you my friend!

Terry said...

HOORAY!!!! I send my congratulations and my condolences on being pregnant! I love babies, but I hate being pregnant!

Twins, really? I always wanted to have twins... until I had one baby. Then I decided I prefer them one at a time. :) But twins are soooo cute so I wish them for you too!

So sorry you're sick! Oh and I really enjoyed your clever and fun way of announcing that you're expecting!!!

the mama hood said...

Congrats! I am so excited for you! Hope you feel better soon though!

Rachael said...

congrats, Alice!! That is super news and a super good reason not to blog. Although parties are exhausting and reason enough on their own! Good luck!

Marilyn said...

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU! Honestly I was worried about you-you are such a faithful blogger-I was thinking of emailing you and asking you if you were ok.....Hang in there....it sure seems like forever..but it will pass...I had my last baby at 35 so I can relate to the exhaustion....Marilyn in AZ

One Happy Family said...

Congratulations! Zofran is a miracle drug. I had to give my shout out for the one medication I promote. Cali is a true friend to offer you her sacred medicine. I still have some, but I'm not sharing. Sorry! J/K I pray for you all the best & healthier days ahead. Remember you ARE a SUPERmom...you can do this!

Meg said...
