Sick is never a good thing...

and when you're pregnant it feels that much more annoying!  Thanks to my ever so caring boss, I am now sick with what seems like the head cold from down below!

Hopefully it will get better and sleep will come easy again. 

Until then I have another appointment tomorrow with the doctor and will be keeping posted on that.

19 Weeks and So much happening


It's now 19 weeks and 6 Days, boy do I feel huge!!!  
This was the Ultra Sound at our 18 Week appointment.  Taken of the tops of their heads all snuggled together.  Right now our weekly check ups are to make sure that TTTS is not present and the two chicklets are growing properly.  The DR said everything looks great so far.  We are so blessed to be able to see our girls grow before they arrive.  As well as giving me a piece of mind I can't help but worry daily if I'm doing everything right.

Coming up this weekend my beautiful Sister in Law is getting married.  I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the brides maids.  I cannot wait to help with the preparations tomorrow and to see how amazing it will be.
Next week I'll have back to back DR appointments which will be crazy but luckily I only have a 4 day week which will make things easier.

Hopefully we actually get started on the baby room this weekend as well....hopefully ;)

Trust me

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience…I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….You're not as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you


Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind…the race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.


Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds know still don't.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't, maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't, maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's. Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own..

Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they'll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time it's 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen...

You thought it'd be me!

Isn't it odd when somehow the roles are reversed and you just sit back and laugh thinking, "How in the heck did that happen?"

Well the roles have been reversed for my relationship! Hahah

I bet 98% of you would think that the Woman in the relationship would be persuading the Man to get rid of his toys to save money for the onslaught of baby feet.  Well you are incorrect in this situation..I, the lady, am being told that my man wants to sell his motorcycle or even mine! 

Of course this cannot be allowed!  There is no rhyme or reason behind it, especially if they are paid off!  I could never part with what makes life so wonderful!  My dirty baby is just....what makes life so sweet!  I think I've held back the forces for the time being.  Now to set up the defense for the next attack!

I thought not.

As I'm lying on the couch resting, he asks me, "Are you going to make dinner tonight?"  I reply, "Probably not tonight."  He then questions, "Are you going to finish the dishes?"   I answer, "Maybe tomorrow". 

He then asks, concerned of course, "Have you done anything?"

I sit up, look him in the eyes and state, "Lets see, yesterday I made a lung and kidney, today I completed a circulatory system, while tomorrow I was thinking of working on a brain."   He stares at me with nothing to say.  I then stand up, "Now, would you like me to make you some dinner and finish those dishes?"

He answers, "I think I got it."
