The first post of November

First of all, go and read this list. Except for #11, I pretty much could have written every single one of these. But since she wrote it so well first, I second everything she says, and I'll add a few more of my own:

1) Watching the food network, food commercials, and looking at food in magazines makes me immediately sick to my stomach
2) My super smeller pregnant nose can smell a poop the minute it enters the diaper even on the opposite side of a big room. Then I start crying thinking about how I have to change it. P.S. Super smeller nose is a CURSE.
3) For weeks and weeks I have to abandon, with no guilt, my usual green practices of recycling, composting and cloth diapering simply because the smell of each makes me dry heave.
4) All I ever want to do all day long is lay on the couch and watch tv or lay in my bed and sleep. Because anyone who has experienced this kind of nausea knows that sleeping or tuning out real life is the only real escape.
5) Whenever I feel that dreaded hunger pain in my stomach I start to panic because I know that 95% of the food in my house is inedible and disgusting.
6) Whenever my children say they're hungry or a mealtime is approaching, the panic increases ten-fold because the thought of standing in the stinky kitchen preparing food often overwhelms me to tears. In short,
And that, my friends, is the most mysterious and crazy thing about these pregnancy hormones that invade and hijack every single system of my body. Because in my non-pregnant life,
and I actually look forward to them.

So bizarre.

We are excited and overwhelmed to welcome the fourth and final Fuller child into our family. And we will be even more excited if this dreaded nausea ever goes away.

Well Well!! Were you preggers when you and Lis came to visit? I wish a healthy baby for your family and I secretly hope that you will follow in my ways and welcome a female child after all those males! I will say that is is beyond fun to have a girl. Good luck!!!

I had so much fun at stamp camp with you! Want to be my new stamping buddy?
And the whole pregnancy thing- I feel your pain :). I can't really think about it, because if I really truly think about it I might chicken out on having a 4th. I hope it ends soon.

Emily said...

Woo hoo Kristine!! Congratulations! So sorry about the whole nausea thing, that sounds terrible. I REALLY hope that stops soon.

WOOOT! Congrats Kristine! I'm going to laugh because I don't know if we'll ever get together...first you're pregnant, then I'm pregnant. Twice. Now you're pregnant again. And when you're done, I'll probably be again... Best wishes! I still want to meet your family sometime.
