Writing About The Un-write-ables

It has been hard to update my blog lately because it seems like I have been suffering from from bloggers block. There have been two huge things on my mind lately but they have been unwriteable. So it's been hard to get anything else to the surface.

First, Garry was out of town for a few weeks. It was a stressful time, but I could not really write about it because I did not want to advertise that I was home. ALONE. And the good news was that I did have company for some of the time! My parents came for a few days and my sister came and spent the night one night and another night my other sister took the big girls and let them have a sleep over at her house. I was really grateful for all of their help.

In other news, I am starting the fifth month of my pregnancy. It's been an interesting pregnancy because I was so sure that we wanted four kids and then when I found out I was pregnant, I realized that I was starting all over. There were moments of severe panic! I was still having problems getting Molly to sleep through the night! What was I thinking?!?!

At my last doctor visit they could not find a heartbeat, and I had to go in for an ultrasound. That was not a fun time. They said everything looked fine, but I am anxious for my next visit. I'm thin and usually nurses can find heartbeats fast. So, it's an anxious time.

I could find out this month the gender of the baby, but in my world of pink (pink clothes, pink hats, pink shoes, pink blankets, pink CARSEAT) I am daring the fates to send me a boy. We usually get what we're unprepared for, and so I think, hey, bring it on! So we'll just be surprised in March. I'm not that worried about it. Okay, I am worried about the pink carseat. . .

Congratulations! Four is such a good number...but it is scary any time you add another one! I hope you're doing well.

Congrats! Sorry about the scare, and hope all goes well for the rest of your pregnancy! It'd be great if you did get a boy . . . . . even considering the pink car seat!

Happy day. You're a brave woman. My three girls are overwhelming me right now. Maybe next year when we get one into Kindergarten, we can think about more. Maybe.
