This is all just abstract thinking however, because our history of getting pregnant isn't exactly easy. We may not be able to have anymore. Who knows? With Clomid helping it took us 1 month to get pregnant with JBird. 3 months to get pregnant with TBone and then 8 months with no success, taking a break, trying again for 3 months to get pregnant with Beebs. Do you see a pattern here?
Anyway, as some of you know I used to have another blog on another blogging site. It's telling me I've had it since March 18, 2005, to be exact. Having my sister join blogspot has made me nostalgic for my old posts so I went there today to peruse some of my posts from long ago. I got to around when Beebee was born and, I'm telling ya, I shouldn't have read these posts at this point in my life. It might have tipped the scale in the "I think we have enough kids" direction.
Check out this one:
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2005
So, in case you hadn't heard, I'm 8 months pregnant and stuff. I know I hardly ever mention it but lately it has become all consuming. It's like I can't do anything with out being reminded that I'm in such a state. I thought I'd do a quick top ten list in honor of this situation.
TOP TEN THINGS I MISS ABOUT NOT BEING PREGNANT:
10. Getting up in the morning and walking to the bathroom with out having to a) take a breather on the edge of the bed first just from sitting up and b) limp because my lower back is killing me.
9. Blow drying my hair and whatnot with out having to sit on a chair (it's exhausting).
8. Eating when ever I want and whatever I want. Not when Fokker RN tells me to.
7. ***** (edited for blogspot)
6. Wearing pants that actually stay up.
5. Laying flat on my back and reading a book or laying on my stomach to sleep. This left or right side only thing is killing me softly.
4. I'm not a fan of random people pretending to be sincere and asking "How are you feeling?" "How are you doing these days?" I mean, how good could I possibly be doing . . . really.
3. Putting on a pair of socks with out having to hold my breath and contort my leg to the point of pain.
2. No back fat.
1. Coughing without peeing myself a little.
And this one regarding life with a newborn:

Beware: Baby On Board
|Consider this your official warning: THE ROADS ARE NOT SAFE!!|
Why, you ask? It's not because of the inexperienced teen-age drivers. It's not because of the old people who still feel they are capable of driving but, in fact, haven't had the capacity to drive for 10 years (Grandpa Grumpy was a prime example of this). It's not even because of the drunk drivers out there.
No, it's because of all the mothers on the road. The mothers who are speeding as fast as they can home from a soccer game because their baby is SCREAMING in the back seat. The mother who is reaching back to said baby and trying to stuff a binki in his/her mouth which is only ticking the baby off more. The mother who is trying to drive with the screaming baby and two boys who are arguing over whether or not YuGiOh and Pokemon are the same show. At the same time this mother is trying to remain calm by drinking a Diet Dr. Pepper and changing CDs to something a little more soothing.
Srsly, as I was driving home last night with my perfectly behaved children in the back riding along in silence and my hands at 10 and 2, I saw all of this occurring in the mini-van next to me. It was disturbing to say the least. ::ahem::
And this one cuz it was so funny but has nothing to do with pregnancy:

|Conversation which took place 10 minutes ago:|
Me: Tbone, how many boogers do you think you eat a day?
Tbone: All of them.
That last one makes me remember how funny kids are though.
