At least I think it's the hormones. I've got a lot of stuff going on right now and sometimes you just gotta cry, just gotta let it out and that's what I did tonight.

I'm probably pregnant. I'm two days late and will get a blood test on Monday. I knew I was pregnant with Dennis when I was only one day late so I'm pretty sure. It'd be a planned pregnancy and so its okay, it's just like there's no turning back now. I have never taken care of a kid who is so much work as Dennis and so to think that soon I will have two of them is kind of freaking me out. I don't know how I'll do it. Nobody ever said being a parent is easy and I want more than one kid, but now that I'm pretty certain another is on the way....I guess I'm just really nervous.

Anyways, other factors. My parents are in town for my graduation on Saturday. Those are two big deals right there. Shane (hubby) just got back from New York after a job interview. He mostly went to pressure his current job but now it's like do we stay or do we go. The town we'd be going to is called a village, not even a city. It's a population of 2,000. The college he'd work at would only have 900 students. His current job has 2,200 students.

So yeah a lot of stresses that kind of just built up and I needed to get them out and say somebody please hug me!

My sister's first son was VERY difficult as a baby, so she got really nervous when she got pregnant the second time. It turns out the second one was an easy baby. As they've grown up, they've actually traded places, with the 7 year old now being a great, helpful kid, while the 5 year old is a little terror.

So don't stress over having two of them. It won't really be twice as hard as one, especially if the first one is particularly tough.

Good luck with everything! Change is scary but without it, we just stagnate. I'll be thinking good thoughts for you, your loved ones, and your future!

Hang in there! And remember that small schools can be really nice, with a great sense of community. (Some aren't, but don't dismiss the school just because of the size.) Small towns can be nice, too, though if there's a larger city within driving distance, that can take some of the provinciality (?) of a small town down a notch. Congratulations on your probably pregnancy!
