hello- we have been without internet for a bit, but we are back on now.
in the mean time, i found out that we will be having.....
another girl! that makes three! I was thinking all of the time that it would be a boy, so it was a bit of a surprise, but a good one. and now, we have even found a name- i finally feel ready for her! not knowing was really bothering me.
i went to the u/s alone b/c dh had to work at that time and so i was trying to think of a fun way to tell him. he didn't want me to tell him over the phone, but to wait until we were together. so, the night before the u/s i had a dream of what i could make-
i drew a simple sketch of a pregnant mama from profile and over the belly made a raised and round paper pocket- it had a little hole in the middle and i tied together wool strings of green, then blue, and last pink with a tiny baby made from a q-tip and more pink wool tied on the end. and then under, you could open the whole belly to see a cut out of the sonogram picture showing the sex. my funny dh didn't catch onto the color scheme at all, and didn't understand till he saw the picuture, but still it was a success. and my daughters loved it.
nia82- are you in germany? with the military? i am near Lorrach with my dh who is german. we moved here 1 1/2 years ago.
i have a tendancy to be annoyed with my dh when he gets sick too- it is a part of myself that i always think i will do better with, but then,,,,he gets sick and,,,,i feel annoyed.
last spring, he had a tick bite that looked suspicious, they caught it before he had all of the problems associated with lyme disease, but the antibiotics he had to take totally wiped him out. he was in a fog, with headaches and all sorts of complaints for the whole 6 weeks. and since then, his immune system is just not strong. last week he had a weird virus associated with a low immune system.... it seems that every week is something new. next week, we will drive to my ILs so that a friend of my FIL, who was a dr. before retirement, can remove a strange bump from his back.....i hope he is going to be ok- i feel worried about it. but, it is exhausting sometimes to think of him all of the time, at a time when i feel like i need a little more help. and then, i complain to him which feels even worse b/c i don't think he needs more stress......
i forget what else for now- but i think i usually write too much anyway....
happy to be back though.
