The Explanation

That sure explained it all --

the terrible headaches, weight gain, dizzy spells, bedtime hyperacidity, sore, tender breasts, irritability, repeated waking up in the middle of the night and being unable to go back to sleep, and yesterday's voracious craving for spaghetti AND halo-halo:

My hormones are raging.

And I am pregnant.

You'd think being mom twice over I'd recognize the signs. But my cycles are really erratic, and I have polycystic ovaries. After getting negative results in quite a number of pregnancy tests despite having no real protection in the last 4 years or so, I have sort of given up hope for baby no. 3. I just thought it was Aunt Flow coming. :)

Yet now the test has confirmed, it's a baby coming, sometime April or May next year. I am really, really, really hoping it's a girl this time. :)

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
