So. Pregnancy hormones are making me have the loveliest moods, on top of morning sickness that lasts half the day on a regular basis, and I'm tired all the time, I get hungry every 2 or 3 hours which also makes me nauseous if I don't eat right away.

I am also planning a wedding. We ended up with 2 months to plan the wedding. DF is not here yet, he doesn't pcs to this state until the very beginning of October, then we're getting married on October 18. He's also being told by the docs where he is now that he is going to need to have at least 2 surgeries on his ankle, probably pretty soon after he gets here, just hoping it won't be until after we get married.

I miss him like crazy. I know I have it good that he is in the states and not deployed (he came off of his third tour to Iraq in April, when he was still DB and not yet DF). I have it good that he will be here with me and we will be together for most of the pregnancy. I have it good that we'll only be about two hours from my family and friends for the rest of the pregnancy and the birth. But I especially wish he could be here next week when I have my first OB appointment and sonogram and get to hear the baby's heartbeat and everything.

On top of that, I keep wishing there weren't quite so much to do to get ready for this wedding. It was originally going to be just a small wedding for family and close friends... now we're sending out probably at least 150 invitations. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that we're involving family friends I've grown up with who have been a big part of my life, but at the same time there's a little part of me that cringes and thinks "This wasn't supposed to get this big" and a small part of me that wants to just get the whole thing over with. But I know in the future I'll look back on the wedding and be glad that it's being done how it is...

I'm tired, and I'm cranky, and my emotions ar all over the place, and I feel fat b/c I eat all the time b/c I'm always hungry, and I feel ugly b/c I"m so tired and have no energy and feel so crappy in the mornings when I go to work that I'm doing well to get out of bed and get clothes on and brush my hair. I work at a Tex-Mex restaurant and the smells make me feel so much more sick, now I can't even stand to smell the leftovers heated up at home, and it's been my favorite restaurant for 16 years. I want to cry and I want to curl up under my covers and not come out until the baby's born, but that's really not an option. Grrrr! Oh, and my brother is an ass and I'm ticked at him.
