Good Lord, Has it Been That Long?!?!

Um, hello. I just sorts realized that my last post was back in November. Yeeeaah.

Here’s the thing. This pregnancy has been kinda rough. And seemingly the longest pregnancy ever. Even though I am only 30 weeks. Lots of drama. But really, when isn’t there drama in my life? I know I owe a serious post about what happened to my father, and you will get one. But not tonight.

Tonight is about the bebe.

It’s a BOY! He weghs over four pounds already. Lord help me! He is measuring 32-33 weeks(except for his belly which is measuring 34 weeks!). The boy is a moose. He also has a tiny bit of fluid in his left kidney. I am being sent to a pediatric urologist. And they may have to operate on him after he is born. It’s a lot of big words that I am too tired to figure out how to spell, so I will just tell you this. It’s not scary. It is pretty simple and fairly common.And I am amazingly calm about the whole situation. Weirdly.

I am just ready to meet my son. And to NOT be preganant anymore. And to sleep on my tummy while eating Brie and medium rare steak. And bleu cheese.

The end.


Operation Knocked-Up…



Not only NO, but the germy beasts I do have, have infected me yet again.



edited to add: I am not pregnant. I am, however, currently experiencing The Mutha Of All Head Colds. Courtesy of my beloved eldest child and the germiest place in the whole wide world. You may know it as pre-K. Your sympathies are greatly appreciated. Now, if y’all will excuse me I am going to go drink a gallon of Nyquil.

Operation Knocked Up…

Negatory, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full.

Well. Did you really expect it to happen so soon? And with the living at the ‘Rents house? In my old bedroom across the hall? Sharing a room with the boys?

There’s always next month. I would say wish me luck, but I am not sure what it is I should be wished. Fertility? Stamina? Bendiness? TMI?

Whatever it is, wish it to me. I got a powerful hankerin’ for another baby.

Edited to add- According to the Chinese Lunar calendar, I need to become pregnant later this month in order for it to be a girl. Which is theoretically possible. No pressure.

Otherwise I have to wait until APRIL of 2009 for my next chance at having a girl. Jeez. Anyone else have any other methods,ideas they would be willing to share? I really want a girl this time.

Did You Know?

************ possible TMI alert ************

Hi! Here’s an interesting tidbit I found out on Tuesday morning…

When having your IUD removed it is ADVISED to ABSTAIN FROM THE SEX FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK PRIOR TO SAID REMOVAL. Because with the IUD most women don’t have a period. Or if you’re like me, it’s every six weeks-ish for about an hour. Ovulation who? So on the off chance you are ovulating before the removal, come to Mama!


I’m thinking that might be an important smidge of information that a person’s OB/GYN might need to mention beforehand. So certain people don’t decide to win one for the Gipper, if you catch my drift.


I could very well already BE pregnant. I’m just waiting for my husband to confirm or the arrival of good ol’ Aunt Flo. Either way it’s gonna be one hell of a couple weeks!

**** edited to add ****
Flo has arrived, thankyouverymuch. I would have been excited to have already been pregnant, but it would have sucked some of the fun right on out of it. You know?

Operation Knocked Up…

************ possible TMI alert ************

It is official. I went to my OB/GYN this afternoon and had my IUD removed. We now have the green light, as it were, to begin making another baby. Our third baby. Can I get a WOOT!WOOT! ?

Well, not actually tonight. I am a little crampy and uncomfortable. Maybe tomorrow. On the bright side? It does not hurt at all to have it removed. In fact it literally took about two minutes. Seriously.

So now we wait.

And maybe begin discussing baby names. Or is that too soon?
