Appetizing, huh? Oh yeah, I'm talking to pregnant women.... you probably think it sounds delicious! anyway, morning! Anyone there? Misty is probably sleeping in, Cora went back to bed, and here I am! All alone again!

Well, I had one of those mornings. I went to brush my teeth, and looked in the mirror, and realized: I'm starting to look FAT. I haven't been thin in years, and its been great because I've been losing weight this pregnancy without even trying... I'm getting narrower sideways, but putting on a pot belly! Unfortunately, the pot belly is pushing up my built-in life preserver, so I'm getting some interesting effects... yikes! Now I understand what people mean when they say they want to look pregnant enough that people know its not just fat... Its starting to get a little wierd... talking to people who know I'm pregnant, and they just can't seem to stop staring at my belly... I just want to say, "come on guys! Its pretty much all blubber at this point!" Thank goodness they've not started touching me yet.. That would pretty much give me the heebeejeebees. (I get them a lot, don't I??? :) I'm not a touchy person... My SIL told me yesterday, "you realize, pretty soon you won't be important anymore..." its like, "yeah, I know... I'll just be a food factory." I can't say as I mind a whole lot, though! I get uncomfortable with too much attention.

So.... anyone there? apparently now I'm not getting ENOUGH attention! :-) Hey - give me a break! this work stuff is pretty boring... my a__sistant is sick, so its just little 'ole me all by myself today... She's super talkative, so it seems awfully quiet...

Im here, bad morning this morning so we will see how the day goes. Sorry D cant really talk to much right now but I will try to check in later ok?

 

Misty - May 6

Goooood Morining!! :-) Yeah, with me I'm already not that important anymore, it is my son that comes first. Pretty soon though any time I thought I had to myself will be going to the new baby. It is going to be tough, but I am getting so excited.

 

D - May 6

I'm not personally worried about not being important. I've spent most of my life that way, and now my importance is only because I am providing a nice warm place for a more important person to grow...

 

Misty - May 6

Hell D, I hope you don't really think that. I don't know who all is in your life but I am sure you are important to all of them, and I know that even though they aren''t people, you are important to that little zoo you've got in your place. And, you're important here. And if you want to be truly serious about it, once the baby is born you become even more important. You are the protecter, provider, and love giver to that child. No one is more important in that babies life than you are.

 

D - May 6

I'm not serious about it in a bad way. I know to my family and friends I definately have some importance. But I'm not a prime minister or anything else of great significance! And I know that now I have some pretty big responsibility - I can raise a happy healthy kid, or make bad choices and warp them for life! Its scary... makes the little boys squirting seem a pretty petty thing! I'm just hoping they're healthy.... have all the limbs they are supposed to have and no extras! I kinda drifted off topic... :)

 

Misty - May 6

That reminds me.. I saw this thread the other day where a lady was saying she had had two kids that tested posit_tve for an increased chance with downs so she terminated. I personally couldn't do it, but I can see others not being able to handle it and not wanting to put the child through it. Anywho, she was asking would she ever have a healthy child and someone asked her what exactly did she consider healthy and if the child was missing a limb would she terminate it also. She said yes!!! Unbelievable. Could be a totally happy, smart, loving , wonderfull child and grow up to be an amazing person, but she would terminate if it was missing more than one limb!! Would they let her do that? I really hope not. And this might be a bit mean, but I don't think that woman needs to be blessed with anymore pregnancies. Anywho, i'm making my steak today, going to start it in just a few minutes. Wish me luck on it? If this comes out good Mike can never make fun of my cooking again. :-)

 

D - May 6

Good luck! :-) I couldn't terminate a pregnancy for any reason. I hope they are healthy, but I'll take whatever I get. I think its sad to terminate for an increased chance... so many times the baby is normal in spite of the tests.

 

Misty - May 6

Yeah, that is why I am afraid to take the test. I would keep the baby regardless and I do want to know so I can prepare if it is going to have downs, but so often it is wrong. It only lets you know there is an increased chance, not that the baby has it, it is really scarey. And then with that lady....who knows if both of those kids actually had downs....it is very sad. I'm going to go start making lunch now though. Hopefully everybody will get their a__ses up and over here to come keep you company. They sure didn't do it for me last night. :-( I felt so alone and unloved. Wahhhhh. :-) jk.

 

Cora - May 6

Alright I am here...kind of, just drug my a__s outta bed...lol and I am still half asleep. I havent slept in that late in a long time...it's 9:40...hehe

 

D - May 6

Morning, Cora!

 

D - May 6

I just decided to not take the test. I figure I won't completely trust the test results until I look into the baby's eyes, so what is the point of worrying? I am aware there could be something wrong, so that is the preparing I am doing. If the baby requires medical intervention, then I won't be taking it home for a while. If not, then it will need the same basic things as a normal baby - food, diaper change, love... with the addition of any specific needs. I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again - thank goodness we each get to make our own decision on the tests! I'd sure hate to be required to take it, or if I wanted it, not be allowed to.

 

Cora - May 6

Good morning D ! Sorry for the pause...u know pregnant women...lol I NEEDED FOOD !

 

D - May 6

Yeah... I'm thinking pretty hard about lunch...

 

Cora - May 6
