Random thoughts (really needing to just get stuff off of my chest....)

Will they ever get it right??

So OB appointment today. Now they have decided that my due date is 5-16-07. They keep changing it but I am assuming since this was the circled one on the sheet this will be the one we go by. U/s scheduled for the 27 th. Going to have a 3-D one done. A bit nervous about that. And will find out more about the sex of the baby.

Work is busy. The holidays are always with every job but grieving people need more love this time of year. Especially when their loved one dies near the holidays.

Excited for my friend sortingoutthebabystuff!! It's a boy!!

V is finally on the mend. Today is our first parent teacher conference. I am a bit nervous. At therapy last night the Dr. said to me "your daughter is definitely unique". Should I analyze or take as a compliment?

I am one lucky woman. I am in love. Isn't life grand?

Well, V is still sick and we had to make the horribly hard decision to stay home. You remember my sister just had a baby- we can't get her sick. V doesn't have a fever, just cough and snot. But yellow snot. We are both bummed.

But I am thankful for somethings.

My family
My friends (one of who just called and mandated we come visit for a bit)
My Animals
My job
Mother Earth
The Sun
The Sky
Ghiradelli Chocolate
My bed and pillow
And any of my sweat pants...
And am I thankful to be able to be a mom again.

Kisses to all I love.

Have you ever...

had a morning where you thought you could rip your head right off. My child has been sick for 6 days now and she HAS to go to school today. I just have to get her there. No temp just cough and ripped apart lips. (She decided that it would feel good to have no skin on her lips as they were chapped.) And she is being a PILL!! Driving me crazy. Won't eat breakfast and is just plain being a SH**!

These are the days that I am glad I am a working mom. Though there aren't many of them- today I am glad.

Belly is starting to "pudge out" as one of my friends ever so delicately told me. Starting to feel flutters. :)

Home sick

Here with V today as she is sick. Just has a viral infection. I spent the day making egg nog cookies, spinach dip and trying to pick up around the house. And of course I had to "snuggle me" every 10 seconds. She is feeling a bit better now.

My surpirse blew up. Maybe some other time. Bummer.

Feeling pretty good these days. Having a hard time staying asleep. I wake up around 3 or 4 then I can't go back to sleep. Driving me bonkers.

Feeling the little thing more often now. I can't tell you how amazing it is to feel life inside of your body.

J and I are doing well. Just wish we weren't so tired at night. We both plan on watching a movie or a show but then we just fall asleep. I am feeling really old. But I am getting up in the years.

Off to snuggle V.

Here is the recent picture of our little one. Things look great! They moved my date up to May 2nd. Funny huh C?? And yes, I understand that it is completely to early for this... but we saw something... The tech said she usually never tells before 16 weeks (we are 14) but she saw a doo Hickey- so did we. But it may have been the umbilical cord or his hand. What will I do if it is a boy?? So we will find out more later. Heart rate 155. Saw the bladder, heart and stomach. And I am getting bigger. I have my offical first piece of maternity clothing on today. Ugh.

Miscellaneous verbal vomit..

I love my babysitter. Let me just tell you how lucky we are to have her. I came home today from a full day conference with a headache (car sickness) and she offered to take V with her so I could nap. LOVE HER!! Not only that she has decided that she will give her dinner!!

Side note: I was driven into my driveway and saw her mother's car there. She turned 16 and is now driving!! I don't even have to go and get her now!! So I am here in my sweatpants- not having to leave my home for a second. LOVE YOU C!!

My life is lucky. Well, okay- I have had my fair share of shitty times. But I have friends who are great! One will be moving back to MI this winter and this just tickles me to death! When she moved away when we were in college it broke my heart. I always felt such a kindred friendship with her- and hopefully now we will be able to see each other more than once every few years...

Another friend and I only have a week or so before our big debut peers it sneaky head! So excited to see her as well. Can't talk too much or I will give the surprise away.

HH thanks for always being there to help with V. My mom was never lucky enough to have friends like I do. Even on a school night- I can depend on my V being taken in if we need her to be.

Cravings- cheese and crackers. I can't tell you how much I love processed cow mold and the wheat thin together. So in love with them now. Also, pineapple, peanut M&M's, vegetarian meat balls (though I still have not had a chance to make them!!), and last but not least- the muffin. I am always up for a good muffin. I tried a low fat carrot muffin yesterday and I have to say that I was gravely disappointed...

V is working hard on piano. It is so cute.

I am trying to get to my sister's this weekend so I can see my baby. Well, I know- it's technically hers but I want to see her. Remember how cute she is?!

M & D are still talking of selling the house. They are wanting the boys to have a "moving day" the day after Tofurky Day. Ugh. My heart breaks.

Lost some really important patients this week. One on Monday and one on Tuesday. If I didn't love my job I would quit immediately!!

We're in the 150's

So I had an appointment with my OB/GYN today. Did I tell you that last time I went they lost my culture swab?! So had to do that again. Oh well, I'm pregnant- get used to it right? Anyway- the babies heart rate was 150ish. She wants to have me get another ultrasound to "verify anatomy and viability". Ugh. That phrase freaked me out. But I am assuming she really just wants to confirm my due date. She was thinking I should have been due earlier in the month of May. So I go on the 13th to get the ultrasound. My bladder is not happy about this...

I gained 4 pounds since my last appointment. See you in a few months Floreen Marks.

I am really pissed at JEEP right now- they have my car. It's actually that sleazy boy salesman. My car has been there now about 35 hours- the service department did not even know it was there. THEY HAD NO IDEA!! And of course my sleeze boy wasn't there. And the manager didn't call me back. See how they rate on their survey!!! But I do love my new car- when I have it.

Recent cravings... Pineapple, milk (normally this would gross me out), granola and chocolate (that's nothing new!).

The Skywalkers....

Here we are as the infamous family. We had a lot of fun last night. Boy was it cold....
