Thanks for all the congrats. I’m still in a state of disbelief. I think it’ll eventually sink in once I start “feeling” pregnant. So far, I only have the lovely mild cramping and fatigue. Oh how I am tired. I figured that the babies will be about 15 months apart, since my OB will more than likely induce me earlier than my due date, if that’s even correct. We’ll have to wait for the ultrasound for the definite date but according to all the online ones it’s Aug 2. Well we’ve been through this before, I think it’ll be much easier with that age difference than with my 5 yr old now. But all kids are different so we’ll see.

I told hubby Monday night. Basically sang the classic Whitesn*ake 80’s tune, “here I go again on my own” Of course he thought I was kidding. So I showed him the test, and the fact that I’m a week late, he’s starting to believe it. I won’t breathe a word of this to the kids till we know all is well and so on. I’m not sure how I feel about this. I mean, I was very upset at the thought of never having another child, but now that it’s happening, I can’t explain it. I’m scared because of how sick I was with my last pregnancy. I wonder how I’ll tell work, LOL> Returning from maternity leave only to go again on leave, that’s cute. So right now, I am grateful, because I know how hard some people try to have children.

I must go to sleep now, just finished doing a backshift. The hyper overtired mode is starting to shut down. Take care all 🙂


Well I am “postively” shocked. Seems there will be another family member coming our way sometime in August.

Next step: Tell hubby.

I remember my 17th birthday as if it were yesterday.

I had been dating a guy who was 3 years older than I was. We dated for 2 years and then we broke up about 2 months before my 17th birthday. Anyway, he called me about a month later, asking to meet up again. Of course when we broke up, I was devastated. I was on the pill but didn’t really care if I was taking it regularly since I had no intentions of dating anyone anytime soon, since I had just gotten out of a 2 year relationship. How naive!

I agreed to meet with him and of course I was stupid and we of course “got it on”. I had instantly thought, what if I got pregnant? But that was a crazy thought, I was still on the pill, but had missed two during that month.

I wasn’t even late that month but I just knew something was different. I knew. I just knew. I told the ex about the possibility of it and he had said, we’ll deal with whatever happens.

Then I took a test. I will never forget that feeling, on my 17th birthday I found out I was pregnant.

Telling my parents was one of the most “surreal” things I have ever experienced. I felt as though I were watching myself telling them. They were supportive and disappointed. They took it much better than I thought they would, considering the circumstances.

Oddly, I feel like I did when I was 17.

Still late, hoping she’ll show up by tomorrow. If not I’ll test.

2 posts in one day……

Oh where, oh where is my period, oh where oh where can it be???

I figure if I acknowledge the 3 day lateness and possibly wear white pants, it’ll bring it on full force.

My period was only ever this late 4 times before……….

Well, it’s been awhile since I last posted. I haven’t had much ambition lately. I think that the “honeymoon” phase of blogging for me is well overwith.

I took my son to the Dr. the first of this week. She seems to think that it may be reflux that he has and prescribed him some zantac. So far so good. He’s been eating a ton now since he’s been started on his meds. He’ll still have to go for a b.arium swallow test to fully diagnose him, but we’re not sure when that will be. Heck, I dont’ know how they’ll get him to drink that anyway, it’s awful!

Last night was parent teacher night at the school. My son’s teacher doesn’t think that he has a learning disability, which is good, she is however going to put him in any extra reading courses that she can, cross your fingers that he makes it into this one she’s suggested.

I saw my oldest daughter’s teacher and was surprised at the comments. I know she’s a chatterbox but her teacher told us she’s “inconsiderate with comments to other’s at times”. That really upset me. So anyway, we told her what the teacher said and hope she’ll change. I don’t know what else to do. Basically treat others the way you would like to be treated phenomenon.

I did some shopping yesterday. I got some really good buys on toys. I saved almost 80 dollars =) I am still having one heck of a time finding a few toys that the kids are asking for. That d.ance r.evolution game is next to impossible to find around here. So I’m checking out e/bay trying to find it.

Well must go, don’t have much else to write about. I think I may be shutting down soon, since I’ll be back to work, and whatnot. We’ll see.

Guess who got another tooth??

I bet you can’t~ LOL. She now has 2 🙂 You can kind of see them in this picture here. What a laugh, hubby and I think that she’s going to be the holy terror at Christmas. I think she may attack the tree. She’s totally into EVERYTHING in sight!

You have to love the disgusted look on her face!

Because I have nothing else to blog about…
