<p>how are you feeling?  <span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>I'm feeling pretty good now!! It was a bit rough for the first 3.5 months, but now that I can eat more and get out and about, I feel pretty "normal"!  :) I am SO SO excited to be able to eat more!! LOL!  I think I am making up for 3 months of not eating! ;)</strong></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>what's your favorite thing about being pregnant?  <span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>Hmm....favorite thing?  I'm not quite sure.  I really REALLY love to feel my baby kick!! That becomes the highlight of my day!  I love day dreaming and planning for the birth, and getting all the cloth diapers ready!  I really do love being pregnant for the most part!!</strong></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>your least favorite thing?  <span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>Getting sick.  I seem to lose 10-15 lbs when I'm pregnant. The first time it was from throwing up 5 times a day, and this time it was just from not being able to eat much of anything! I can't believe I didn't lose more than I did!  Oh yeah..and the round ligament pain and getting up to pee 523483209 times a night isn't that great either...lol. </strong></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>i notice our daughters are the same age, is she excited about having a little brother or sister?  <span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>My daughter Addison is SO so SO excited to have a baby brother or sister! She can't wait! I think she is going to be such a big helper too. She'll be 4 when the baby is born. I don't think we'll have any jealousy issues, but we're going to try really hard to make her a big part of everything.  She tells everyone that I have a baby in my belly and that it's her baby brother or sister! :)  And she is excited to try and nurse again once the baby comes (which is why she only wants ONE baby so she can have the other side...hahah!)! </strong></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>favorite ice cream flavor?  Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! YUM!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>night owl or early riser?  <span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>Nigh owl! I would LOVE to sleep in until 11-12pm if I could!! I used to do that when Addi was a baby..I don't know what we are going to do once this baby comes! LOL!</strong></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>most hated household chore?  <strong><span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);">Hmm. I guess it depends on the day. I would have to say mostly putting laundry away. I HATE that! It is never ending!!!!</span></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>any phobias?  <strong><span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);">Tornadoes.  Seriously. I hate them. If there is bad weather I need to see the radar screen constantly and I really dislike storms because they could turn INTO a tornado.  Not to mention that a tornado in my area is really really really unlikely..but I am still super scared of them!  Maybe because of Wizard of Oz? Lol!</span></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>favorite kitchen appliance?  <strong><span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);">I would have to say probably my toaster oven. We got rid of our microwave.....2 maybe 3 years ago, and have used a toaster oven ever since.  We LOVE it!  I haven't missed our microwave since we got rid of it!</span></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>if a movie was made of your life, who would play you?  <span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>Hmm...honestly I have no idea.  Mayim Bialik?</strong></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>what do you think the greatest invention is in your lifetime?  <span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>The iphone? Lol! I really don't know..but DH and I were talking about technology last night and were thinking back to when I got my first cell phone at age 16.  We didn't even have text messaging!  And now look at the phones! They are mini computers!</strong></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>if your house was on fire and you could grab only three things before leaving, what would they be?  (your family members and pets are safely outside)  <strong><span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);">I would probably grab my computer with all of our pictures on it (that way I could just get them all reprinted myself), my baby blanket, and our filing cabinet with all our important papers? Geez I don't know. I was looking around my house but there isn't very much that I would be devastated over losing that I couldn't replace.  Pictures and journals would be it.  None of my furniture is important to me, or clothes.  My daughters clothes that I saved would be hard to swallow if we didn't get those out too....but I don't even know where they are at the moment! LOL!  A girl I knew from high school just had a house fire and lost everything.  It's so so sad.  The mementos are what she is the most upset about. </span></strong></p>

<p>dd (who will just turn four before baby arrives) is so excited too.  i had wanted to have our children closer together in age, but now think this is a great age for her to be.  i got pregnant around the same time last year (ended up losing the baby), but i think dd understands so much more this year and i'm so glad for that.  she's just so excited and i think she'll be a huge help as well.  she loves to lay her head on my belly and talk to the baby.<br>

<p>Thanks for sharing Tara</p>

<p>BTW - Traftyn (our DS) will turn 4 in March and baby will arrive a few months later.  I think it will be a great spacing too..eventhough a) I was fine just having one and b) if we did have another one we wanted them spaced just a tad bit closer together.  I, too, had a miscarriage last July..but everything happens for a reason so I guess this is the perfect timing for "us"</p>

<p><span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);"><strong>I'm not sure if you saw my siggy or not, but I had two miscarriages this year, one in March (baby would have been born in October) and one in May (baby would have been born in January).  We had been trying to get pregnant for over a year, and I guess the 3rd time is the charm?  Either way, like the both of you, I am really happy with the age range that we will have and feel that this is what was meant to be!</strong></span></p>
