Thanks A Bunch!

WOW! I am truly touched with all the comments that were left on my last post :o) So much support and so many well wishes. Thank you! I am still sifting through comments and meeting new Stalkers so please bear with me. I'm almost caught up with my emails but my Blog reading is behind...again. I know, I know, what else is new?

Tomorrow DH and I are off to the IWK for another appointment. This one should just be routine. It's kind of wearing thin driving to Halifax every two weeks but at least I know I'm getting good care. I thank my doctor for that because I was a complete basket case when she first met me but she got me back on track.

Yes, I was just a 'tad' overwhelmed when we found out I was pregnant. I can't tell you how many times I looked at that pee stick, then back at the instructions. Looked at the pee stick again, then back at the instructions. Hoping somewhere along the line, I read the instructions wrong ;o) I even asked DH to double check that I was reading things right. Of course my family doctor's office must think I'm right out to lunch because I called them up first thing and wanted to know how accurate a pregnancy test was. Needless to say, there was just laughter on the other end of the phone.

I always knew there was a lot to being pregnant but it's definitely not the fairy tale that my mother and my friend K make it out to be! No one told me about the consistent peeing, being oh SO tired all the time, the pulling and stretching of your sides as things grow and best of all, the bowel distension and constipation! Oh what fun! LOL! In the end, at least I'm going to have someone to blame for the 2 am and 4 am wake up snack calls ;o)

In the past little while, I've been lucky enough to win a couple of giveaways :o) The first was one from Lizzie Kate! I won one of the lime green calculators but she also included a free chart in the package -

I thought that was so sweet. Thank you so much :o)

Not too long ago, I was a winner on Andie's Blog and this is what arrived last week -

I know! That red, sparkly fabric is just yummy but I'm having fun with it all ;o) Thank you Andie!

I still have some stitching to show you so stay tuned for more...

Congratulations on the wins. Don't worry about the tiredness etc, in a few more weeks you'll start to feel better and have more energy....till the last few weeks and it all starts again, lol.

Carol said...

I just found out my co-workers daughter is due the same time as you, Cathey! If it makes you feel any better at all she is pretty much flat in her back with "all day sickness." Things will get better very soon and you'll get more energy back :)

Lovely wins--enjoy!!

All those little aggravations will be soooo worth it! I still remember the feeling of awe when they placed my sons in my arms. Follow your body's cue and get lots of rest.
Great wins! I love that sparkly fabric too, it's gorgeous.

Kerry said...

Lets face it if our mothers told us the whole truth there would be a lot less babies in the world. Thankfully they hold back most of the bad stuff. And thankfully we forget most of the bad stuff and we all have those babies that make our hearts go pitty pat!Enjoy the good things and ignore the bad ones. I have two grown up daughters and when I was pregnant I could not drink coffee or brush my teeth in the morning. When I did try me and the toliet bowl met every time.

KaLu - Claudia said...

congrats on the winnings !1 =D

I know exactly what you mean ...when I thought I was pregnant I didnt want to deal with the pink stick or the two sticks etc pregnancy test I wanted something straight up ...and got it .. when i read the words so clearly PREGNANT i threw it in one of the drawers and closed it lol so i slowly opened the drawer again ..and there it was straight up just staring at me so i closed the drawer and just left it there lol about an hour later i decided to double check and still said the same thing thats when i pulled it out and gave it to the daddy ...his face was funny too lol

You should read the book baby laughs ...its funny but she talks about some of the things moms dont tells us about being pregnant until it happens ..its like they get amnesia or something =S
