I am back! Well, my weekend went okay for the most part. I am starting to feel a little worse… like I have this “constant” hungry gotta eat pukey feeling (the kind of feeling you get when you get the flu). It seems to have gotten worse yesterday and today… Ironically I am now in my 6th week! I haven’t thrown up yet (and don’t really want to), but I really don’t feel the greatest either. I know you ladies understand! I so envy pregnant ladies that don’t get sick!! Now… I am not totally complaining either – it’s not that bad yet and I am still happy as a lark to be pregnant!!
I know I needed to share my story with you guys. So, we shared our good news with my DH’s family this weekend. We told them by giving them a card (this is how we are telling everyone). On the outside it has our picture and it says… Cannon Camera $500, Cost to print this card $7, Postage to mail this to our family and friends $20. Then on the inside it says: The look on your face when you realize there are actually 5 people in the picture. PRICELESS!!
So… his mom and grandma were very happy for us. Then we give the card to his sister. She opens it, says I knew it (in a sarcastic voice). Then she says, I told my older sister that after she had her baby you guys would have another one. She said it like we only decided to have another baby because my DH’s sister had one. Hello… we have been talking about this for THREE LONG years!! I really don’t think his sister had any deciding factor on why we would have another one… besides we have two kids, she has one kid… I didn’t quite get that one! Then… there has been this issue that she likes to say my DH doesn’t make time for his extended family. Well, that could be due to the fact that they act so dumb at times!! So she says, why would you bring another baby into the world when you don’t have time for the family that you have. What right does she have to judge if we should/should not have another baby?? I mean… hello, we have a very nice home that we own, nice cars, good jobs and my DH and I are home every night. Yeah, we might be busy because we do have kids, but it’s not like we don’t spend time with our kids… everything we do is with our kids!! If my DH is working outside, my son is usually with him. So… anyways, my long story is I can’t believe that she would have reacted that way. She runs non-stop, leaves her kids with their grandma all the time, has horrible credit, and I could go on and on. Why does she have a right to say that to us? Oh well… I guess that is why we don’t spend a ton of time with them. I honestly don’t really care, it’s just really annoying. Well… to a point I guess I do care or I wouldn’t be upset about it. I just think if we are happy, then people should be happy for us.
Outside of that, my weekend was good. How about everyone else?
Wow... Bliss~ You should get an award for quotes. LOL!! I am right there with you on not feeling like doing much! I came home Saturday after running some errands and took a nap, got up took my DD to her friends and came home and went to bed. Sunday got up and didn't do much, went to a birthday party, came home watched a movie and went to bed.
La Marmotte~ That is great that your family doesn't get much MS! I would definitely thank your lucky stars! I so envy those that don't get sick!!
Carlin~ That is AWESOME news!!! Our insurance doesn't cover midwives, so I have to go with an OBGYN... he's awesome though, so I think things will be fine. Seriously though... I am sure this will save you a ton of money!!
Critty~ Sorry you had to wait in the RE's office so long! It sounds like you had a great appointment though and your little one is growing nice and strong!! Yeah!!!
: I am sure M's pain was nothing to worry about - probably just a growing pain or something. I am really happy and excited for you!!
sunflwrmoonbeam~ Sorry you weren't feeling well! Just remember... at least it usually only lasts until 12-14 weeks. Hugs!!
Nnejy~ I know exactly how you feel! Suddenly NOTHING healthy sounds good to me! I seem to be able to eat some fast food, but seriously anything good for me besides mashed potatoes (okay not really good for me) sounds good.
Jessie~ Sorry it kicked it! I totally feel your pain as I was so sick with my last baby and was practically in bed for 6 straight weeks (aside from my trips to the toilet). I am so hoping it doesn't get like that this time... I can't miss 6 weeks of work this go around!!
I hope I didn't miss anyone!!
