Conspiracy Theory

For two weeks I've been complaining to Dave that there is something wrong with our coffee. I made a switch to Dunkin' Donuts b/c I kept hearing how great it was. For the record, not my favorite. I'll stick with Starbucks.

After this coffee switch I was feeling exhausted. I was certain they had switched Regular with Decaf. There had to be a mistake here. I was dragging all day long and I had headaches. You would think that this would tell someone they have a problem with their dependency on coffee, but I wasn't going to go down without a fight. I love my coffee.

What did I do? Drank more coffee, tried other brands, and took naps. Nothing worked.

Last Wednesday I was at a friend's house and I was so tired I couldn't even think. I had a horrible migraine and I could barely drive. This was much more than coffee.

Conversation when I arrived home:
me: I'm so tired. I just don't know what's going on.
Dave: Maybe you're pregnant
me: I'm not pregnant

1/2 hour later:
me: this is weird, I'm calling Ellie (my midwife)
Dave: maybe you're pregnant
me: I'm not pregnant

After phone call with Ellie:
me: My Iron is low. Makes complete sense. I've been tired, had headaches, and exhausted. This is the way I felt during both my pregnancies and post birth.
Dave: So you're pregnant
me: I'M NOT PREGNANT!!! MY IRON IS LOW!!!

I'm really not pregnant and I feel 100 times better now that I'm taking my iron pills.
Apparently Dave is ready for a 3rd baby.

It's a good thing you're not pregnant cause I would have really hated hearing about it on your blog. Remember that when you do get pregnant:)
