Icky Sicky and Other Banalities.

Why in the world am i posting at 4am? Well, other than the persistent insomnia that I have been plagued with that is. I am sick. Good old-fashioned sick- clear runny nose, headache, malaise. I am thinking that it is just a cold, but I may go get checked out tomorrow just to make sure it isn’t the flu. I didn’t get the flu shot this year, but I am getting pretty short of breath. I am sitting out on the recliner and I just can’t catch my breath. I have been SOB (short of breath) since pretty much CD 26.

So I am trying to watch TV. There is nothing on. So I am playing with my TV…NO you dirty dirty people, I am not having a liaison with my TV or watching porn- although it is so awesome I may be tempted. This TV rocks my world.  It has all the fancy widgets and internet. I can watch my Netflix, Hulu plus (um, if I had it), check my Facebook, Twitter, play games. It has a tool bar across the bottom when I do the internet TV so I can look at my Flickr photos, youtube, picasa….aaaaahhHH! TILT TILT TILT. The only part that sucks ass is that we have a Harmony remote and not a keyboard type remote. DARN IT!

What else is new with me? Oh, how about the fact that the night of the lunar eclipse my husband peed all over the toilet seat b/c he forgot to put it up. Ugh. Since I get up to pee around every 1.5 hours, I got a ruuuuude awakening when I sat down. Needless to say, it woke me up! Wet toilet seats are so gross. Of course I had wash my hienie…and couldn’t get back to sleep. That was like around 330 or 4am. THAT was a long ass day. My stomach was tore up(not related to wet toilet seat),  and the slow down of the GI tract is definitely kicking in.

DirecTv was coming to upgrade our service for our new snazzy TV, and he called to say he would be earlier than he thought….like 1030. So, as I fell asleep and woke up at 10am or so…..quick shower, and I realized I didnt’ have time to GO. You know- Numero Dos. I waited, and waited and waited. Got in touch with the customer support person-can’t get in touch with the tech. I was about to die. I figured Murphys Law would kick in and he would show up when I sat down to GO and would be at the point of no return. No such luck….but he did finally show up at 330pm. Awesome huh? Wasted day.

On the plus side, our TV ROCKS…oh, I already said that right?

um…what else is new. OH- I got a Secret Santa present from my match at Braces Bunch. I was going to wait until Christmas to open it, but I couldn’t wait any longer! I can’t link her blog b/c it is private, but lets just say it is one of the best presents I have ever ever gotten. I put the picture of our last US in it from Monday. I will post a picture in the Sweet Oat page above if you want to see it. I have the US pictures posted there, so just be aware. If you are wary of the black and whites, I will take a picture later of just the frame and update this post. The picture is in the bedroom right now, and I can’t get it.

My brother came down Wednesday to drop off the hub’s present. My family is big on opening our presents on Christmas or a day or two after. We don’t open stuff early…so this was a huge box, so he had to bring it down for us since we won’t be back up there for another month or so.  I had a good short visit with him. Went to a local Irish restaurant/pub. He had to pee really really bad, and ended up going into the women’s restroom. LOL! Oh my- I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. He said he first realized something was wrong when he was peeing in a stall (which he thought was odd, and said he though “Hell- us Irish are too drunk to be modest- what is up with the individual stalls?) . He said he looked down and there was  metal box on the wall, and thought “Hmm…wonder what that is *open* OOOOHHHH NOOOO”  HA HA. So freaking funny. Had to wait until a lady finished peeing, and another finished changing a diaper before he could sneak out. To his defense they have the signs on the doors made up so you get confused. The Men’s has a wooden sign in the shape of a pointing had to the left saying Women.(meaning the women’s is other door), and the Women’s is vice versa. HA HA. To go to the bathroom at McGuire’s is to be away that you might get walked in on by the opposite sex.  We tested out the 3D movie Monsters V Aliens. Awesome.

Anyways, other than all this banality I am doing good. I am super excited for my Twitter friend @infertileturtle. She got a BFP on HPT and Beta! WOO HOOO!!! I can’t link her blog b/c IRL people read it and she doesn’t want them to know yet. I already screwed that one up…thank goodness she caught it and deleted it. DUH!

Morning all!!!



You are warned….tmi

I am a blimp. A huge gas filled blimp. In the course of about three weeks my stomach has tripled in size. My little sweet Oat(s) may be the size of a grain of rice…but HOLY SHITE the havoc that is being reeked on my GI tract is unheard of.

I can’t wear most of my jeans- from The Bloat.

I look about 14 weeks already- from  The Bloat.

My husband gets grossed out a regular intervals, but doesn’t say a WORD (God bless him)- from The Bloat.

WTF is going on with me? oh, yeah, I am pregnant. wha- tha? OMG I AM PREGNANT. No way. Really? They got the blood tests wrong. No, wait- they got them right, but I am pretty sure I farted my baby out


On another note (ppppffffttt)…uh, sorry. THE BLOAT is even reaching through the computer to YOU!!! Mwaaaa-ha-ha-ha.

I have been insanely tired. I don’t know if it is the pregnancy…wha-I am WHAT? PREGNANT? REALLY?! No way. REALLY? OMG.

oh-sorry, that is how my mind works. Or doesn’t work lately. Whatever…I am kinda like that normally, but THE BLOAT is killing me.

ooooohhhhh…something shiny…….






oh, yeah. My beta #2 was called in Monday at 1110am. I knew they would call, and she was apologitic about it. She said she thought I knew. I understand. It was Friday. Whatever.

It was 868 on 18dpt! Sweet Oat has a rockin’ placenta…or I have a Pheasant Chasing that Oat. 🙂
