One Trimester Down, Two to Go

My second trimester started on October 19th. Thus far, it is FAR better than the first. I'm still wicked tired, but I don't have morning/afternoon/evening sickness. I see the doctor in a month and should find out the sex of the baby before Christmas!

Health and Well Being

This pregnancy is so much harder than the last one, even though this time I'm only having one. It must be a sign of a boy!

On Friday, I will start my second trimester. This seems unbelievable to everyone except me. Coincedentally, I am the only willing myself to get through each day. Everyone else has a chance to forget about the pregnancy!

Thanks Dalton!

I finally have a doctor's appointment. It's Nov 29th! I will be 4 1/2 months pregnant. Lisa, my assistant, is 4 1/2 months pregnant right now. She has had numerous tests and an ultrasound. She has seen her doctor once a month for the last 4 months!

I shouldn't complain. Dalton has had an amazing effect on the health care system by reducing wait times and increasing access to doctors. It's true, he told me so! I'm super pleased that he got a majority government. Imagine all the good he can do now!

Everything I Know I've Learned From "Dora the Explorer"

We bought the children a Dora the Explorer Hallowe'en DVD. It has turned out to be amazing. They have picked up on "Trick or Treat" using imaginary candy (might be harder to part with the real thing) and pumpkin patches. Pumpkins are the girls' new passion. Good news is that they are going to a pumpkin patch on Monday with their Daddy!

Dora has also introduced the girls to the idea of costumes. Katie has a chicken costume which she is OBSESSED with. Whenever she sees it, she has to wear it - even if we are going out in public. Very cute to see a plump little chicken in a car seat!
The funniest time was when we actually bought the costumes. We tried the chicken outfit on Katie, and she wouldn't take it off. Then she took off down the mall with it on (before we paid for it!). I left Mum in the store to pay for the costumes and then chased Katie. The mall was packed. My little chicken didn't think she was getting enough attention running down the aisle in a chicken costume (in September), so she started shouting "GRANNY!GRANNY!GRANNY!". Complete strangers were laughing at us! Not a subtle little smile while they thought to themselves "Ohh, that's cute". It was full blown, laugh out loud, pointing and laughing!
The picture is of Katie in her costume. Sadly, the costume is on backwards (thanks Daddy!) - but you get the idea.

The Latest

I had an ultrasound a while back. We are having ONE baby. We are delighted. However, it looks like we will be having a home birth as I cannot find an OB/GYN.

At Death's Door

Sorry for the month off from posting. The girls have been sick. As a direct result, I have been too tired to do anything more than I had to. Anyway, the kidlings are on the mend and life is starting to improve.
