That’s why I haven’t posted much right now.  I’ve been tired and nauseated. 

I go in for my first OB appointment tomorrow afternoon.  I’m actually looking forward to it.  I’ve always been a bit paranoid since I miscarried my first pregnancy and I am happy that this Dr. I found prefers to see his patients between 4-6 weeks as opposed to 8-10 weeks like many other doctors do. 

My poor hubby is having to put up with one crabby lady though.  The smallest things annoy me and I know it’s just my hormones and feeling tired and nauseated, and trying to keep up with five kids and all the things life throws at you when you’re already trying to juggle too many things.  *yawn*  And the dreams!  I keep having dreams about people I love dying.  I think I did that during my last pregnancy too…something about the beginning of life makes me aware of how fragile and precious life really is.  But I wake up almost feeling unrested from all the turmoil going on in my dreams. 

And the craziest dream so far was triggered by sick people.   Our friends just moved here last week and the wife called me at almost 1 a.m. because she and her hubby were both violently ill.  I could hear him puking in the background, then she had to put down the phone to puke.  When she came back, her hubby was at it again.  A couple days later, the furniture delivery people showed up and the guy puked all over our driveway and street in front of our house.  So that night, I dreamed and dreamed about puking people all around me and all I could think about was how I had to avoid them because I was pregnant and didn’t want to get what they had!  It was one of the most disgusting dreams I’ve ever had.

 Why did I just share this with you, the blogging world?  Because I’m just too tired to write about anything indepth.  And I’m scatter-brained already.  I even left my wallet on the ledge at Chipotle the other day while ordering lunch.  A man standing there placing his order turned around and found me frantically looking.  He raised his eyebrow and said, “Ma’am?  Is this your wallet?”  Yes it was.  Sheesh.  And I felt him give me that look.  (You know, the look that says I need to get it together!)

But even with that look, those were the best chicken tacos EVER.  Especially since I ordered a side of lime flavored tortilla chips and salsa to go with it.  Yum.

So those are my excuses for not really blogging right now.  Tired and scatter-brained!  I’ll try to come up with something better by Friday.  Maybe.

Okay, I’ll make this short. My friend is 20 weeks pregnant and trying to decide if she should find out the sex of her baby on November 6th. This is her 4th and she has all the baby gear, the only thing she may be lacking in is clothes if the baby is a girl. She is taking a poll on her blog and she’s going to go with the highest vote! She only asks that whoever votes leaves a short comment too (probably so she knows people aren’t voting more than once).

If you want to help her decide if she should find out the sex of her baby, go to her blog now!  🙂   She has to tally up the votes before November 6th!  I figured this would be fun and the more votes, the merrier! It also has me thinking about what I’m going to do.  I really want to be surprised, but Scott wants to know.  He’s such a party pooper!

Thanks For The Comments

you left on Sister Talk’s blog!  I just thought it was a good question to ask, not only because Deborah wanted to know, but because it is something we should stop and ask ourselves too!

Deborah over at Sister Talk asked a very good question today on her blog.  I was just curious what you all thought?  Why do you go to church?  Go over to her blog and leave a comment.  I think it is an interesting question, the way she posed it, and would like to read your thoughts on it.

I know so many people around me who are desperately wanting a baby.  Just one!  And here I am about to have another baby, by accident.  I have to confess, it makes me feel a bit guilty.  I SO want these dear ones to be able to have a baby of their own.  I pray so hard for them, even the ones (bloggers) I haven’t officially met. 

 And my sister, who has been trying to have a baby since this summer, I’m sure is getting frustrated even though it has only been a few months.  I will be waiting a while before I tell her I’m pregnant  (by accident!)  Honestly, a part of me hopes she will get pregnant before I have to tell her.  Then there’s another part of me that just wants her to get through her first year of marriage, because she and her husband have a lot of growing to do in their relationship with each other.  For those of you who’ve been married for more than a year, you know what I mean.  That first year is a growing period! 

Anyway, as I’m waiting for reality to set in that I am going to have another baby, my heart cries out for those who are waiting for their little miracle. 

I’m also contemplating the dream I had the night before I found out I got pregnant.  What does it mean?  It just makes me feel like we’re not done, like there will be another child.  Is that crazy?  Can I chalk it up to crazy pregnancy dreams or is it really a dream within me, to adopt another child?  I can still feel the love that grew in me when I held that baby in my dream.  I just knew I couldn’t let her go.  It scares me to think I may never experience that in real life.

Dear L.i.f.e T.@.u.c.h,


How could you send this home and think I would want to hang this on my wall?  And the family?  Do you really think I want to send this to them?  This is not a picture to proudly display on the living room wall.  This does not capture my son’s personality.  To be honest, I’ve never even seen this kid!

And let’s not pretend like this never happened:

This one didn’t go out to family either. 

Please, Please, PLEASE refrain from sending home any more photos of my children with constipated or pained expressions on their faces.  I will most definitely return them for a full refund.  Better yet, I’ll forgo using your services altogether and take them to a photographer who cares (and charges less!)


A Mom Who Loves Pictures!

(Okay, I admit, I even loved these…just because they made me laugh!)

Go read this post at A Mom’s Blog at http://momblog.gainesville.com/ and please share your opinion on this one!  A middle school in Maine just passed a policy allowing children as young as 11 years old to receive birth control pills without their parents’ consent or knowledge!  I just can’t believe they were able to pass this in a Middle school!  What is our country coming to?  They have simply taken away the parents’ rights on this one.  This is wrong, wrong, wrong!
