morE preGnanT me- headEd into the 3Rd streTch

Felt baby FO. SHO. close to 20 weeks.

Then she became a constant mover and a shaker.

The kids have all gotten to feel her at least once, which amazes them.


Even though it seemed to be the slowest, most gradual process ever, the worst of the pregnancy symptoms did begin to subside sometime in the late 20-ish weeks.

Even then, the sickness still visited late at night (when I should have been in bed) and I often burped up/barfed up grease from the dinner I had eaten several hours before, or anything I had tried to eat/drink since.

Especially if I had attempted any water.

So strange. (you’re welcome for the graphic details)

But seriously, poor D is so sick of me pointing out the nasty grease.

And whining about my burning esophagus!



I was told I was anemic, which came as no shock since fatigue has pretty much stuck around for the long haul the entire length of the pregnancy.

I moan in my sleep (usually laughing in a dream and waking myself up)- D and I both giggle

and I wake up in a puddle of drool every morning and after every nap.

I could be wrong, but I doubt having 3 kids 6 and under helps with the tiredness either:)

And thank goodness for my snoogle!


Can’t remember much else at the moment- may have to add later!



Lighting was so bad= poor picture quality

VeGas MarCh 2012


Our husbands were kind enough to allow us 3 chicas a quick little jaunt to Vegas.

Sun, Lava Flows, shopping and weirdos were definitely in abundance.

We got star treatment everywhere we went, and every night we went to bed later and later.

And then slept in later and later

The only dark clouds were


No hubbies,


um, hello I was like 33 weeks prego-



I messed/froze up my phone as I was running out the door to catch our flight.

That meant I had a tough time staying in touch with D, the kiddos and the WORLD for the first couple of days.

Once I got to an Apple store, they had to wipe the entire thing CLEAN which was also very upsetting.

Other than that, I didn’t let the belly hold me back too much. . .


And besides, I got plenty of legitimate advice, such as:

A glass of wine is just fine as long as you aren’t in your 1st trimester,

preggos should NOT sit in the front seat with the airbags,

I carry this baby extremely low-

and of course, lots of Congratulations and baby name suggestions.

One Wacko nice lady even rubbed my hand, looked into my eyes and blessed my unborn child for me.

People in Vegas are really into obstetrics.

Who knew, right??
