TP: over. But when ds changes the roll, it's a crapshoot. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm so proud of him for changing it that it doesn't matter which way it's on.<br><br>
I honestly can't think of any celebs that I'm attracted to. Let me think harder and get back to you.<br><br>
Games: when I'm function on a full brain, I love word games, except for Scrabble. Since I'm brainless right now, I like Disney Trivia.

<div style="font-style:italic;">how do you anticipate this birth experience from being different than that with your previous one?<br><br>
when was the last time you rode a bicycle?<br><br>
what's your favorite flavor tea?<br><br>
do you wear glasses?<br><br>
sorry in advance about my spelling, I'm sure there will be posts that make you grimace <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"></div>

With this baby, I'm not going to be in such a hurry to induce. Matt was induced at 41 weeks because my fil was flying in from Ohio. I told my doctor that the baby had to be out before fil arrived.<br><br>
I can't even begin to tell you the last time I rode a bike. Maybe when I was 12. I'm definitely not an outdoorsy sporty person.<br><br>
I'm boring when it comes to tea. I guess you could say that my favorite flavor is sweet tea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I do wear glasses. I wore contacts for 16 years before my allergies got so bad that it just wasn't worth it anymore. Now I'm rocking the glasses.

<div style="font-style:italic;">Ooh, this is fun! I love that the questions are more personal than some of the huge lists I've seen before. They're actually helping us get to know Candy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
So here are my questions...<br><br>
What are your birth plans like this time?<br><br>
What have you done/are you doing to prepare your DS for this birth?<br><br>
How has your DS reacted so far?</div>
</td>
</tr></table></div>
I'm actually having fun! When I read about the idea, my first thought was that being MOTW was just too much work. LOL. I'm truly a lazy person.<br><br>
The only thing I have worked out about my birth plan is to avoid a c section at all costs. I'm scared to death of having my body cut open. At my next ob appt, I'm going to make my doc promise that if I have to have a section that he'll completely knock me out. I just can't handle the thought of being aware of what's going on.<br><br>
On a side note, yes, I have anxiety issues. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I don't think we've really done anything to prepare Matt for the birth. He was asking for a little brother, so he was super excited when we told him that Mom was going to have a baby. Now he tells everyone that Mom's having a baby in October. He's so stinking cute.<br><br>
We did have the discussion that no, babies do not come out of the poop hole. It actually took quite a few discussions before he would believe me. It's an awful lot of fun being in the grocery store with him when he starts talking about how many holes Mom has and how many holes he has and what comes out which hole. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

<div style="font-style:italic;">If you had a million dollars, what would you spend it on?<br><br>
What are the names of all the pets you've ever had?<br><br>
How many times did you move growing up?<br><br>
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?</div>

Oh no! The dreaded million dollar question. I know for sure we'd buy a house, but I don't know where. DH's family really wants us to move to Indiana, and we're seriously thinking about it, if he could just get a job there. It definitely wouldn't be a fancy house, I just want some land and some privacy. I would invest for retirement. I would set a chunk aside for Matt, either for college or travel. I would donate to my synagogue.<br><br>
Names of pets: oy! Here goes: Murphy, Puddy, Tiko, Stella, Annie, Rufus, Pee Wee, Hulk, Ffej, Indy, Pee Wee, Bushes, and from there I don't remember. Yes, there were two different Pee Wees. Indy was a turtle. Puddy, Tiko and Hulk were/are cats. The rest are dogs.<br><br>
Moving growing up: Honestly I don't remember. I would say 20+ times, at least. And that was all before age 11. My mom was trying to hide me from my father.<br><br>
Now is definitely not a good time to ask what food I'd eat for the rest of my life. All of my old favorites are now aversions. My favorite food ever is eggplant parmesan, so if I weren't pg, I would pick that.

Yeah, Montana is definitely an outdoors type of state. I'm pretty much a freak. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
We are going to find out the baby's sex. Hopefully he/she will be cooperative on the 17th.<br><br>
When I think about transitioning from one to two, I want to go hide in bed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Matt was such an easy baby/kid. I had horrible PPD and my mom was killed 6 months after he was born. It was such a horrible time in my life and I'm really scared that I'm not going to be able to enjoy this one. I'm on antidepressants now and will continue on them, so hopefully that will help.<br><br>
My favorite childrens movie... right now it's probably CARS. I love kids movies though, so it's really hard to pick.<br><br>
Childrens activity... I don't know. I guess I don't really think in those terms. I'm more along the lines that if something is beneficial to a child, it would probably be beneficial to an adult. For an example, when I was in the hospital, my friend would bring me coloring books and crayons.

I realized earlier that I skipped/missed the most embarrassing moment question. My moment is more shameful than embarassing.<br><br>
When I was probably 8, my mom and I would go visit my brother in prison every weekend. We would leave him $200 (at the time the max amt you could leave) every week. One week, a man in front of us in line left his prisoner $2. I don't know why, but I laughed. And I was so ashamed of myself for it. I still am. I feel horrible when I think about it.<br><br>
As far as purely embarrassing moments, I've had so many that they just roll off my back now. A couple of more recent ones include Matt laying in my lap dozing and me going crazy looking around for him, not being able to find him. Everyone was laughing at me and I couldn't figure out why. Hmmm, guess I can't really think of any more.

The most adventurous thing I've done would probably be going off to Yellowstone for a week with a guy that I didn't really know that well. Of course, it's also the best thing I've ever done, since he's now my husband. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We stopped along the road to go swimming in a river, slept in the back of a truck, and just generally had a good time. We explored Yellowstone and Jackson Hole, Wyoming (my other favorite place on the planet). It was the most amazing trip. Oh yeah, we had sex too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"></div>

I feel the EXACT same way. When it was just me (before DH and DD came along) and I didn't have another life to consider, and I would have had to choose major surgery over death, I would have chosen death. I am TERRIFIED of surgery of ANY kind. I told my OB that I would avoid a c/s section at all costs except DD's health, and I would HAVE to have general anesthesia because the thought of being awake while a knife slices open my flesh throws me into such a deep, terrifying panic attack. My OB said he had never met someone so opposed/terrified of c/s before in all his years, So yeah I know exactly how you feel. Hugs!!!!!!

I love Buffy too! I wanted to name our last cat Xander, but DH nixed it. Powerful aversion to Buffy in that man. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I just want to say that I'm really sorry about your mom. I can't imagine how difficult that must have been.

When I told dh about this thread and the fact that I picked Hitler as my dead person to meet, he asked if I explained why. I said no, and he just shook his head at me and told me I was going to get kicked off of MDC. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I don't know if I can put it into words, but I'll try. I've done a lot of research on WWII and Hitler specifically. I just have such a hard time understanding how one man managed to exterminate so many people. I understand that up until the end, he was a fairly normal person. I guess I just want to meet him and see if he really was all that.<br><br>
Oh, and I would hit him. I'm Jewish. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Toy was my Cabbage Patch Kid, and game was Yahtzee.

I knew you had a reason similar to the one above, I just wanted to hear it articulated by you! And as to HOW he managed it, some say it was the flouride he used as mind control of the masses.

Sorry for the easy questions. I am a toy fanatic so I am always interested in hearing what people played with.<br><br><br>
I loved my cabbage patch as well. did you keep the name your doll came with or did you rename it?<br><br>
I had a baby and a doll with hair and neither kept their names. I named one Cassandra and the other Holly.
