The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

Bloody Noses suck!!

I have been suffering with them this whole pregnancy. I'm not talking a little blood in my snot. I mean full on gushers that last an hour. Usually they happen at night.. at home..

Until Last night... That was when I got one in the car on the way to my first childbirth class. It was held in the instructors house. I had to walk in with a handful of bloody tissues and ask for an ice pack. I was sooo mortified. There is only one other couple in the class. She happens to be someone I know from an online message board. So that was even worse. I felt like such a fool.

So today... I am calling the ENT and begging them to take me into quaterize me. I just can't take it anymore! I have tried every remedy under the sun. Nothing works. :(

Pregnancy Stuff
We had another very productive weekend. I think the crib is due in this week so, we got busy.
We hemmed drapes... put up a room divider... put a shelf on the wall... installed a light on that part of the room (WOW that was really hard to do!)... fixed the holes that were made by putting in a new light.... Put new drapes in the Living room......
It sounds like a lot less than we actually did. That took us 2 full days!!
So here are some pictures. I have no new belly shots for you. I have been really lazy about that! But, I am feeling pretty good lately.

We still haven't moved the dresser out.. That will happen sometime this week and the crib will go right in that same spot..
Daisy was feeling like a ham.. so here she is stealing my snoogle pillow... bad dog. :)

I went to a "birth wisdom circle" for water birthing last week. It was interesting. I am not considering a home birth but, the hospital and the birthing room I am using has a waterbirth, jacuzzi tub. I planned on using it for labor and then birthing out of the tub. I haven't been swayed to totally use the tub for the birth... but, I will go with the flow that day. I am not as skeeved by the water thing as I previously was.
That's all for now. I hope everyone is doing great!
