Sibling Jealousy

So it seems as though Reagan is already protesting her soon to be designation as the middle child. She is the BABY damn-it! And its going to stay that way so watch out little bro or sis. Brandon has been doing the morning school drop-offs for me so that I can stay in bed longer. I think he’s trying anything he can to keep me from biting off his head. Its the hormones I swear! Reagan has been crying for Momma the entire drive to school and making it really hard for him to leave her at class. So yesterday the teacher tells me that Reagan has been especially clingy and crying for Momma during class, almost reverting back to a baby. She says not to worry they often see this when Momma is expecting a new baby. Then dance class came and Reagan refused to stay for class. Threw a fit. Didn’t want me to leave. Disrupting the class so I had no choice but to take her home. There’s $20 down the drain. Then came another test today. Gymnastics class. Her favorite class of the week. Would she stay? We walked in, her mood was good, everything looked promising. She started into class then suddenly turned around and came running back to me. Shit! I was gearing up to start fighting with a three year old. There was no way I was going to win this but gotta put up a fight. Then just as she approaches she pulls down my shirt, grabs my boob, and says bye-bye boobie. She then takes off back into class laughing hysterically like a hyena. Need I mention that there were only about 5 Moms and maybe a Dad or two all right there for the show.
So I ask you this. Why am I doing this again??? I am convinced that its somehow Brandon’s fault. Yeah, let’s go with that.

First Doctor Visit

We had our first OB appointment on January 13th. The entire gang went along at the chance there might be an ultrasound. All the usual first visit stuff. First we went over the financials, again this kid is going to cost us nil. The benefits of a great insurance plan. Next they check the usual fluids…blood and urine. Simple done that before. I had spotting and cramping the entire two weeks we were in Indiana/Michigan so they thought it best to do an ultrasound to make sure the pregnancy was viable. Happy to say everything looked great. The kids got to hear and see the heart beating so that was extra cool for them and us parents. Due date set at August 23rd.
So far this pregnancy has been very different from my first two. Very nauseous ALL day. Having difficulty figuring out how to get relief from the nausea. Not vomiting very often as opposed to the almost daily occurrence with the girls. Can’t tell which is worse the constant vomiting with the girls or this constant sick to your stomach nausea feeling but unable to vomit in order to settle your stomach. Let’s just say they both suck! I have figured out that beans and rice from Tres Margaritas and Ginger Ale seem to make my stomach the happiest. So sticking to the few foods I know I can tolerate. Only two or three weeks to go and I should start feeling better. Yeah! Let’s just hope this nausea is gone before the big parents only trip to Costa Rica.

Back to Blogging

With kid number three on the way I have decided to get back to my blogging duties. I had way too much fun going over my entries from when I was expecting Reagan. So many stories I had forgotten. Many laughs, mostly at my own expense. Since this is definitely the last kid to take up residence in my womb I figured gotta blog it so that I can remember it. So here we go. Now just gotta squeeze in the energy to write when all I wanna do is lay in bed.
Nine weeks down…. only 31 to go!
