I’m here :-)

I haven’t blogged in a while – it’s been a fairly busy couple of days. Friday morning, my mother called just as I was getting ready to rush Jess out the door. Marc and I have one car, and for the most part, he does the driving to and from school, but on Friday, he’d …

Springtime :-)

I love the warmer weather. There are aspects of winter I like, I enjoy bundling up in a blanket, sipping cocoa and reading. I love Christmas and candles and birthdays, and all of that is winter related for me. I like big rocking blizzards, when the wind howls and we can just burrow in and …

At Sam’s last physical, he had his vaccinations. I’m almost always the one who does physicals, and the shots – I don’t like them, it’s not fun to see my children get them, but I”m okay with it. I can hold them down and while I might tear up, I’m nowhere near as fragile about …

Holy moly – I’m huge

I’m still somewhat baffled by how LARGE my stomach has gotten in the past couple of days. In the past week, it’s like all of a sudden, the baby is just putting on all kinds of weight and growing like a madwoman. And I waddle. I’m still convinced that I’m going to be pregnant forever, …

What is it with little boys and nudity?

Jess liked to be naked too, I guess, but not like this. She didn’t have much modesty – but liked clothes on her body. Sam literally would prefer to spend all his time sans clothing. We went thru a two week period when he was just naked all the time, and now I can mostly …

I’m struggling with time constraints. Specifically, trying to balance out the demands of family versus having a life of your own. Actually, what I’m struggling with is trying to understand my beloved husband’s struggle. I’ve worked out my own struggle. For well or ill, I value family demands over my own. My children are only …

My name is Melissa and I really don’t like water

I just don’t. I don’t think it tastes very good. But it turns out that when I don’t drink enough, bad things happen. Not that I haven’t figured that out before (having been rushed to the hospital after passing out at the beach when I was 11 weeks pregnant with Jess, having been admitted with …

These kind of hurt…

I’m actually contracting and it’s not entirely pleasant. I know I’ve been complaining throughout the entire pregnancy, but since it’s my blog, I’m just going to keep going… I’ve been noticing more and more these contractions – and they hurt. I’ve never had contractions like this – I always just got back labor, so this …

34 week appt

All is well in babyland. I’ve only gained ten pounds so far, which I mention just for the sake of mentioning it. I have no real control over it, because I’ve been eating a lot and exercising next to not at all, so have no idea why I’m not gaining weight. But I’m not complaining …

I’ve resigned myself to being pregnant a LITTLE longer

And it’s even a good thing, because Sam is STILL sick. He’s much, much better, but still has a runny nose and really bad cough in the middle of the night. And I wouldn’t want to expose the baby to that. So it’s good that she’s safe in utero for a little bit longer. Say …
