Where Have I Been? Right Here.

Wow.  It's been six days since my last post?

Really?  Really?

Really.

Because I'm busy.

Being sick.

Being exhausted.

Being moody and irritable.

Being anxious.

Being sleepless.

Yeah, I'm busy.

Busy being pregnant.

Congratulations Faiqa! I am so happy for you!

Holy baby bumps, Batman! You're preggers?!? With child?!? Got a bun in the oven?!?

I'm screaming to my kids, "Miss Faiqa is pregnant! Miss Faiqa is pregnant!" and they're all laughing.

Congratulations from us to you! :)

AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! *jumping up and down* Woo hoo! You're still having sex!

Ahem. I mean congratulations on bringing another beautiful, feisty, wonderful human being into this world. xo

You think your busy now? Ha! Come blog about it in 9 1/2 months on 2 hours of sleep.

But of course... congratulations!

OH! Congratulations!!!! That's so awesome!

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSheila (Charm School Reject)

Oh my gosh! Congratulations!! That is great news! I'm so happy for you:) I hope that you start feeling better very, very soon!

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

Beyond AWESOME!!!! Yay!!! I'm throwing "janelle" in the hat for baby names. It has served me well :)

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJanelle

Please accept my condolences.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAvitable

No kidding! Well, I admittedly have been curious... looked at your profile several times for any updates! Now, I totally forgive you and empathize with you! Pregnancy is ROUGH, especially after having already been there b4. Nothing, this time around, is new and exciting... hang in there and realize that being a Mommy already simply makes THIS pregnancy move along MUCH faster (thankfully). CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Did I just totally diminish your WONDERFUL news!? I was only trying to comment on the negative feelings and emotions you're having... myself, once I had accepted my 1st pregnancy seemed to be amazed by all of the pregnancy Stuff. Well, 2nd time around, all that "stuff" quickly changed into SHIT! How exciting! Rest, rest, rest as much as Nuha will allow you to!

@SciFi Dad:Thanks! Despite all the complaining, I'm happy too.

@Coal Miner's Granddaughter: OMG, you made me giggle. So sweet. Tell the kids i said thanks.

@Finn:Haha. Not nearly enough to warrant a pregnancy IMO, though. Heh.

@NYCWD: Actually, it's the thought of how buy I'm going to be in 9.5 months that is exhausting me. Already. Plus you do know that I have *the* most high maintenance 3 year old in the southeastern United States, if not the world, right?

@Princess of the Universe: :-) Thanks

@Sheila (Charm School Reject): It is awesome. It is. Excuse me, I have to go puke up everything I had for breakfast now. No, no, I'm happy about having a baby. A little bummed about being pukey.

@Becky: I think I will. I barely got sick at all the last time around...so, it should pass quickly. (Please, please, God).

@Janelle: Even if it's a boy? That could result in a lot of ass kickings.

@Avitable: Oh, there's a surprising response. :: eye roll ::

@Stef: Exactly. I am really excited about having a baby, but a little annoyed about being pregnant. I feel a little guilty about feeling that way, but... whatever. It's how I feel. And don't worry, I'll resume posting in a few days. I just didn't want to spew my negativity all over everyone for six days in a row. :)

/cackles evilly.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAvitable

I don't think evilly is a word. Is it? It shouldn't be if it is.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

Of course it's a word. Do you think I, of all people, would be wrong about something like that?

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAvitable

Great news! Wishing you the best!

(I was gonna go sarcastic, but Adam beat me to the punch.)

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterB.E. Earl

pregnant? omg! congrats!!!!

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCrys

:) ***sending you long, restful nights of sleep and wishes*** so excited for you and Tariq! and N!

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterTami

SQUEE!!!! Wonderful news! I am SO excited and happy and thrilled for you!

Congratulations!

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

Yayness! Congratulations to you and Tariq!

I'm very happy for you both.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterHilly

@Avitable: Good point. Plus my Mac didn't put a red squiggly line under it. So, obviously, it's a word.

@B.E. Earl: You're going to let Adam best you like that? What a sad display. (Thanks, btw).

@Crys: Thanks. It's hard work getting your eggs fertilized.

@Tami: **Accepting your very apt and useful wishes**.

@Ginger: Me too and thanks. I'm going to channel some of your mommy awesomeness to get me through the next ... rest of my life.

@Hilly: Thanks. And your blog gave me my first official "craving" today. Just FYI. Maybe you could get people commenting to talk about protein, complex carbs, salads and water for the next eight months instead of FiletOFish from McDonald's. I kid. :P

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

Congratulations!! It reminds me of our road trip to North Carolina :) That was a good time

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCarmen

Holy crap! Congratulations. Karl's gonna be so bummed.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterkapgar

Congratulations!!!! So thrilled and excited for you guys!!!

When you start craving Mimi's Cafe - call me. I'm your gal! :)

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterShash

@ Carmen:I was just thinking about that trip the other day! And...HEY. You read my blog?!

@kapgar:Shhh. It'll be our secret

@Shash: When are we going to lunch? Hang on...I'm going to e-mail you ... Right. Now.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

I LOVE MIMI'S!!!!!!!!!

Oh. Sorry. Off topic.

What were we talking about again? Oh yes

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE ARE SO HAVING A BABY SHOWER FOR YOU!!!!

Oh. We can do a CYBER baby shower!!

I am so freaking excited about this.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Britt

Believe me - I only wanted the end result. If I could get the sqawling bundle of joy without dealing with the pregnant part, I so would. I hope the sickness ends soon! I was so sick with both of my pregnancies - I feel so bad for anyone who experiences even a mild bought of nausea.

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSheila (Charm School Reject)

of course I read your blog!!

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCarmen

wooowowoowowow! call me

December 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKomal

Hello - I am a new fan. I just ran into your blog a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully, my posting will take. First of all, I love your blog. You put comments out there that really make me think, and I likes that. : - ) Congratulations on your baby on the way. Just remember every pregnancy is different. This pregnancy may be easier than your first. My second pregnancy was easier at times but very different than my first. Your 3 year old baby princess will mature a little each day and will be your little helper with her baby brother or sister. Take care!

December 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterADRealty

i am so insanely happy for you and tariq.
wheeeeeeeeeee!
when can i come down and take your daughter out so that your gorgeous hubby can spoil your pregnant self rotten?

December 19, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterhello haha narf

@Miss Britt: I've never been to Mimis. You should take me there to celebrate. Heh.

@Sheila (Charm School Reject): OK, so feel bad for me. I'm hoping it will be over in the next few weeks, like I said. (Fingers crossed)

@Carmen: :-) Well, thanks.

@Komal: Feelin' like a total ass right about now.

@ADRealty:Thanks so much for the warm wishes and it's so nice to meet you! :)

@hello haha narf: Thanks. And now. You can come NOW. :)

December 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

HOLYFUCKINGSHIT!! congrats! That' so awesome!!!!

December 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

Yuck. I hate Mimi's.. it's a bunch of pot roasts and meatloaf and mashed potatos. Good wholesome old fashioned delicious dinners.
Wait, why do I hate Mimi's again?

Congratulations on the pregnancy.

December 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterTwinkie

Congratulations! Whoo hoo!

I'm two days late, but at least I made it.

December 20, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

*giggle*

More Faiqas running around amuses me. I can't wait!

December 20, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPoppy

I am WAY late, but I am thrilled beyond belief!!! Thrilled for you, and thrilled it's you and not me!!!

Seriously- congratulations!!!!!!!!!!

I am SOOOOOO happy for you!!

December 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterTurnbaby

Congratulations! My standard greeting on hearing this news is "do you know who the father is?" but we don't know each other well enough for that, do we?

I hope that you're feeling better soon!

January 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMarinka

It does take up a lot of time, doesn't it? Cooking another human in there ;) congrats again!
