Sleeping, followed by more sleeping, followed by more sleeping, a nap perhaps, and then some nachos.

 

Has there been anything that you loved food-wise pre-pregnancy that you are not feeling right now?

Nope. I just want more of it all, and smoothies, and peanut butter, and broccoli and chocolate, and cookies, and mac & cheese, and, and, and... My last pg I did, I couldn't do eggs, ick-no! but I am fine with them this time.

 

What made your pregnancy feel real? And if it still doesn't, what are you waiting for that will?

Not being able to wear my biggest pants with the fastener closed for more than 5 minutes this morning! I've been doing the hair tie trick but have 3 pairs of pants with hook closures which are usually way too big in the waist. I thought I'd be able to wear them for another month! LOL, good thing I got some maternity pants on craigslist last week to save me from wardrobe disaster.

 

I imagine feeling the baby move will make it even more real, but I've yet to convince myself that has actually happened yet.

 

 

What is your favorite thing about fall, or fall activity?

Well, we've moved on to winter here.  lol.

 

But for fall...I love a lot of things about fall.  I love the change in the air and how the air smells.  I love the leaves changing color.  I love that the sun is still warm and the air is crisp.  I love going for walks and feeling cozy.

 

My favorie thing about fall: the wardrobe.  Boots, leggings, comfy sweaters, scarves...plus fall colors always suite my skin tone.  Jewel tones and earthy colors serve me well.

Trying to get through to DH that I can't do everything for our family anymore and that he needs to do more. And then letting him know that I am not a whiner or a bitch for bringing this up to him. We have had this discussion a few times now....

Oopps!! Too busy venting about DH!!

 

Who will you look to for support after baby comes?

post #30 of 126

Top three movies of all time... well my classic favorite is "The Philadelphia Story" with Katherine Hepburn,  favorite campy movie is "But I'm a cheerleader" and I also really like "Willow".  What a fun question.  It really made me think.  

 

Here is a follow up:  What do you most look forward to teaching your baby to be?

post #31 of 126

Sorry I answered the question on the end of the first page.  I will look for support from my darling wife.  She has taken such good care of our son and I am so happy to become a new mom with her again.  

 

See my last post for the latest question.

 Kind, fair and able to not take things for granted..

when you thought about being a mummy when you were little how did you imagine it would be?

post #33 of 126

When I was little it was all holding the baby, pushing the pram around, and having lots of children.

 

Reality is a bit different. I do hold/wear the baby for about the first 6 months (I have big babies that are not snuggly after that age). I can't find a proper pram here without spending a small fortune importing one from the UK (wish we had that kind of money to spend) and time is fast running out for the 8 children I always thought I would have.

 

What is your favorite line from a movie that you quote a lot in conversation?

Dumb and Dumber is my favorite movie of all time, and very quotable.  "Harry, I took care of it."  "Your hands are freezing."  "Just go man, just go."  "What was all that one in a million talk?"  I could go on, but I'll stop. lol.

 

When it comes to eating, what is your favorite vice?  (Mine is nachos with loads of sour cream and guacamole...)

How long have you been trying to get pregnant? 

post #36 of 126

I stopped birth control June 2011 and was mostly not trying not preventing until July of this year. My DH kept changing his mind about when he was ready for another, so I expected it would take a while, but when it was past a year I went to the Dr. She ran some tests and since all was well, she suggested trying to use opks to see if that helped. Well, it took only two months:) So, I was pretty happy. I know that just over a year is not really that long, but I had been wanting to try for even longer than that so it felt like forever:)

 

What is your favourite childhood memory?

post #37 of 126

Always coming home to something that my mom baked. She worked in the home and was pretty busy but always had a freshly baked snack for us.

 

I just love my momma.

Visceral fear, spiders & other creepy crawlers, real-life fear, DD having an allergic reaction and we don't catch it in time or have an epipen with us and now that something happens to one or both of my unborn babies.

If you won the lottery, what one (or more) dream items would you purchase after paying off the house, setting money aside for retirement/college/etc.? (For me, a bigger and really nice house, a personal chef and a hummer)
post #39 of 126

Someone close dying. Worst fear for sure.

 

What is your biggest dream?

post #40 of 126

Oops, double posted...

 

Dream items to purchase...house cleaning services, travel around the world and some home improvements.

 

What is your biggest dream?
