Morning, everyone! I woke up far too bright and early from a sound sleep, remembering suddenly that I forgot to refill my BP med prescription and I leave tomorrow morning for Chicago to visit my baby neice. Oops!
So I sat here in the dark, with DH and my 4 yo (yes, she's in our bed more often than not) snoozing away, trying to oh.so.quietly beep in the right numbers for the refill. Then the little automated voice tells me my prescription will be ready tomorrow afternoon after 3 pm.
: Um, no, that won't quite work, as I get on an airplane at 7 am. So now I have to call them up when they open and beg and plead them to overlook my total absentmindedness. Hmmm, this isn't a really fantastic sign as to how the day might go; maybe I should just burrow back into the covers and try to pretend I'm still asleep.

well, i think i bragged one too many times that i never get morning sickness because i got hit hard with a queasiness this morning that has been trying to come back full force all day. yuck. haven't puked but sure thought i was gonna several times. yuckety. yuck. don't think I'll be eating anymore salmon potato salad especially not for breakfast, lol.
DS started 1st grade today. Kindergarten sucked badly for him but he's in a better school this year and we are very excited about his teacher- she has a master's and has taught 1st grade for 16 years and has 4 (older) boys of her own. I think this is a place where he will really be able to shine. I start school next tuesday and hope i can shine, too. I was planning on it but am worried that pregnancy might affect my performance. especially since i havent been in a school in more than 10 years. I can do it and do it well and I will. lol I am just worried about having made it much more difficult with this pg. sorry to go on and on!
Thanks for the good thoughts; I'm excited and super nervous about meeting the MW today. I feel like I'm back at a jr. high dance (will he like me? lol)
Salmon potato salad for breakfast? Now see, I think that ranks right up there with frozen mayo on a stick, lol.
Sounds like your DS's new teacher has a lot more promise. I have an incoming 1st grade boy this year, too; in fact, all three of my school-aged kiddos will be in the same class this year (K-4th.) They attend an alternative public school for four mornings a week and I homeschool them the other half of the curriculum. It's a great compromise for my patience level and schedule, and so far, it's been a great fit for our family.
So what are you going back to school for? I'd love to know so I can cheer you on properly!

TCOYF has been my fertility bible for years now; I have given it as a gift to more female friends and family members than I can count now. It's good stuff!

Thanks, jenholle, I'm a little afraid to wish too hard for the HB piece of this, to tell you the truth. It just may not be possible if my BP won't behave. But yesterday on the phone the MW told me that if a HB is what I really want, deep down, I should go for it, and if it isn't possible later on due to circumstances beyond my control, then to worry about that then. So I'm trying to be more Zen about this
(and failing miserably at this stage of the game, lol.)
So how's everyone doing today?
You know, I keep having these truly good intentions to keep my mouth shut and not tell many people yet we're expecting, and then somehow my mouth opens and I find myself blurting it out, anyway.
I'm not sure what's wrong with me -- I never did this last time around! So far, I've impulsively told the kids (who are super excited) and one of my brothers/SIL, who just had a baby boy in June. I was chatting w/SIL last night, asking her how her treatment for thrush was coming along (ouch! I spent a good part of my vacation there last month trying to help her get rid of it), and she told me how big my nephew was getting, and suddenly, there I was, announcing our the good news!
Could this be some form of disease? I really need to get this under control before school starts next week or my whole town is going to know at the rate I'm confessing!
