My poor neglected blog.

It's been over a month! I can't believe it. And the last post was a bit of an announcement. Do I have you on the edge of your seat?

My OB says he get nervous when ever he thinks about me. His nurse says she holds her breath every time she sees that I've left a message for her. I call her a lot. We have years of history together and now we are starting a close personal relationship. And I don't know how much more personal I could get with my OB, poor guy. He's got a vein that bulges out of his bald head when ever I'm around.

So, I have made it to week 13. And I'm feeling really good. I never got sick. Sure, I was nauseous a few times and threw up about 20 times total - so far, but compared to my other 7 pregnancies, this has been fairly easy. I am so fooschnickin' tired it's not even funny. And I'm still eating every three hours during the day. But I put an end to my night time feedings. After two months of it, I just couldn't take it anymore and so far so good. Stopping hasn't made me sick and if I find that it does I'll have to go back to it. But I think I'm in the clear for getting the hyper emesis. And I still mananged to lose 20 pounds.

And speaking of night time feedings, I fully expect this baby to be born sleeping through the night. I'm feeling really old. I don't know if it's because I'm 32 and I expected to be done bearing children by now, if it's the idea of starting over with diapers and potty training and baby proofing when we haven't been there for a good six years now or if it's just that I really was pretty young when I had Sam. 23 seems like so long ago. Or maybe it's just because I'm so tired and don't really feel like myself. I'm looking forward to getting some ambition back, but right now I have none. Not even to blog. Several people have gotten after me so here I am.

Thanks for all your prayers and phone calls. I appreciate them so much. And please, keep them coming. At my appointment last Thursday we saw the little peanut with it's healthy heartbeat and it's HUGE HEAD. I asked my OB when he thought I'd be "out of the woods" and he said, "Uuummm, 38 weeks.... when you're breast feeding.... when this kid goes to college?" So, while I feel like this child will be born (and that it's a girl), I still need your prayers.

Happy Day! And don't feel guilty about being so tired . . . just send that Sam boy outside to play and we'll keep him entertained for a couple of hours, at least! :) Seriously, anything we can do to help. Thanks for the update!

You know you've got our prayers.

I was waiting for you to blog, as you know. But, now that you've blogged, I feel like I can't hold out much longer. I can't believe I've gone so long in between.

I may or may not have something to blog about soon....who knows.

Been thinking about you... Love you Julie!! I do miss your clever posts, but I suppose you're deserving a little break for now :) Take care!

Thank you so much for the update. I'm so happy that things have progressed this far somewhat uneventfully. You are continually in our prayers.

What do you need ambition for? This is a time for the men in your life to pamper you and fulfill your every whim. Tell Matt I said so and if he complains I'll come and bop 'im on the 'ead I will (I'm feeling rather Cockney today). Take care!

It is a relief to read this blog post. I have definitely been keeping you in my prayers and thoughts. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help you out, especially this summer while I have more time on my hands. You always took such great care of Keegan, so please let me know what I can do to help take care of YOU while you are trying to grow this little baby inside you. :)
Continue to take care of yourself and don't worry about not blogging much. But I would love an occasional update from you so I know that you and baby are ok if it is not too much trouble.

I got to see her last week! Julie and the baby girl in her tum tum. It was cool! Keep on takin' it easy Jules. Once you have her, I'm sure you'll have a good five month burst of energy just like when you had Sammykins.

Love you!
