Think of me, for I am the world's greatest happy thought.
Seriously, I bet you passed your test. Good luck.
Hopefully I won't have to disappoint you all.
Whatever happeneds, you will never disappoint me.
Thanks TSL! And thank you too Chewie. You remain as ever, more than 30% cool!
The anticipation is killing ME! I can only imagine how it's affecting poor Wenchy!
Unfortunately it's not been good for me. Even though I'm trying to be calm and behave normally, it's been a bit of a strain.
Last week when I went to my OB appointment, I'd lost weight and my blood pressure was on the rise. Nothing dangerous, but my doc was a bit concerned. Even though I've been trying to force myself to eat I've not been to succesful. I've been weighing myself and even after some ice cream therapy, I'm still loosing weight. Not tons, but considering this is a time when I'm supposed to be gaining a pound a week, its not good either. I'm down five pounds now in three weeks. I'm sure the baby is fine, she's kicking up a storm, getting bigger, and is as active as ever. It's just me that's not handling the strain well. I looked in the mirror today and noticed I had dark circles under my eyes...yuck.
Hopefully this will go away after tomorrow, so I can get back to feeling as normal as possible while being pregnant. I can't take much more of this stress and I think Justin is getting a tad worried. But I keep reminding him that no matter what, I'm still the Wench and that things will be ok. I just wish I believed it a little more myself.
Heh heh heh...
You guys need to come down to Phoenix - we can get you some commander choad style bbq therapy, and some choadsgirl style cheesecake therapy... and perhaps some kreleia style mac and cheese therapy...
Yeah, definitely... I think so...
Take two tri-tips and call me in the morning...
Well everyone, your happy thought paid off!
I PASSED! I'M AN OFFICAL NURSE!!!!!!
Thanks so much for your support and now we should probably think happy thoughts for the lady who told me. I think I traumatized her. Here's how the conversation went:
Me: "Yeah, I'm calling to see if you have the results of my NCLEX exam. My social security number is...."
Lady: "Ummm...yeah, you passed."
Me: " WHAT?! ARE YOU SURE? I'M A NURSE?!"
Lady: "Yep, your results were mailed out today and you passed."
Me: "OMG!!! I PASSED!!!!" *ENTER HYSTERICAL BAWLING*
Lady: "Are you all right? Miss? Are you there?"
Me: *STILL BAWLING* "Yeah...I'm...I'm here. Sorry, it's just that I'm pregnant."
Lady: "OH! Well you're ok and you passed, we can give you your license number on Monday."
Me: *STILL BAWLING* "THANK YOU! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT A RELIEF THIS IS! I LOVE YOU!"
Lady: "Are you sure you're alright?"
Me: "Yeah, sniff, sniff...I'm ok, thanks!"
It's all over, finally, I'm a nurse!
Can i just be the first to say:
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Congradulations WENCHY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Anwelei!!! I'm so happy!!!
Hurrah!! We should celebrate with a kegger, TSL style.
Mac and cheese therapy is my kind of deal.
And you didn't believe us.
I know, I know...I think I didn't want to get my hopes up in case they were smashed to teeny tiny bits.
I'm feeling really good right now. Thanks so much guys!
Hurrah!! We should celebrate with a kegger, TSL style.
Yes! Celebrate we must! Of course non-alcoholic beverage for the Wenchie! But I think TSL and IA should be the dancing boys!
Congrats!!!! We knew you had it in you. Way to go!!!
Now go celebrate with some ice cream.
Let me ask you this: have you ever seen a Grand Admiral dance?
And you're not going to.
I only dance for one person.
go wenchy! go wenchy! got your license! got your license!
Thanks everyone! I've finally got my appetite back...went to Sonic and chowed on a burger and now I'm just elated.
I've been so overwhelmed by everyone's support, you all have been so kind and wonderful. My family is in Spain right now and I was feeling far away from them. Thanks for stepping in and making me feel loved. They did too, just through email, and of course Justin was a doll about the whole thing as well.
When Makay found out today she started jumping on the bed screaming: "YEAH!!! Mommy's a NURSE!!! NOW I CAN GET MORE TOYS!!! WOO HOO!!!" So like a kid. When I looked at her all funny she just grinned and said, "Mommy I love you." That was totally wonderful and I almost burst into tears again. (Damned estrogen and progesterone) But we just started laughing together and if I didn't have to deal with this belly of mine, I would've jumped on the bed with her I was so happy.
I wish I could throw you all a party for believing in me and for making me feel supported and loved. You guys rule and that's all there is to it.
Now I'll have to ask you all to leave because apparently the Admiral only dances for one person and that would be me.
It was worth a try anyway... She and I have the same first name afterall.
See the Ice Cream paid off.....
**huge sigh of relief**
**huge Queenie hugs for Wenchy**
YOU PASSED!!!! youpassedyoupassedyoupassedyoupassedyouPASSED!!!!!
It's PARTY TIME!!!! TSL-style, of course! I'll send you the mac-n-cheese recipe. Actually, it's on the recipe thread Voidy-poo started. Make you some. Better yet, have Justin make you some!!
**doing the happy dance just for you**
CONGRATJUBILATIONS from Husband and ME!!!!
You passed! I knew you would!! I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!!!
And I'm very excited for you, too, in case you couldn't tell.
Tell Justin to give you a giant hug from me.
Wow. Lots of congratulations!!! Yay for you. And Congratulations again.
YAY!!!! Congratulations!!! I knew you could do it!
Thanks a million guys! You're the best and I'm sure all the cosmic vibes you sent out only helped the more.
I'm feeling much better tonight and managed to eat two meals and get a nap! YAY! My doctor will be happy that my stress level has gone back down.
I really appreciate the calls and the PM's and the posts, you guys are the best. I couldn't ask for better friends.
I can't wait to introduce the baby to you all, my daughters need your kind of chaos in their lives.
I LOVE YOU GUYS! Thank you a million times again.
And you had doubts
