Week 10

Now we are in week 10. We are beginning to really feel great about being pregnant. I am starting to tell people. It is really fun!
This week Gumbo is the size of a small plum. very cool.

tired - but getting more energy.

hungry for the first time in ages, I am eating ALL of the time. I take this as a good sign.

highly emotional- I cry a lot, but it feels good, so its ok.

in love- I am trying to make an effort to strenghten my home life. I don't really like my job right now, so I am trying to make home a haven. I have no cause to fight, or be mad or frustrated at home. I am so happy to have such a loving spouse. Even if we want to fight or yell, our heart isn't in it. I see this as a good thing. (we are pretty happy, even when fighting, our disagreements aren't cause for alarm, faithful readers). I think we will have a very happy home in the future, by making it so in the present.

About the birthing post, this week has been very revealing. We thank you for your feedback, many people emailed me about their experiences. We have a dr. appt on August.... 2_? so we will talk to the doctor about our options.
We know that we have full insurance coverage for whatever we choose and that is a happy, freeing thing to know.

Have a good week. Love, V

  1. Hey V! Looks like you and Tom have a lot of thinking to do! And, since you said you wanted some feedback here goes...

    Don't let the hospital frighten you... after Matthew was born, the hospital became my best friend!!! Knowing Tom, I think that he would make you feel like the center of the world, and the hospital would fade into the background. The experience is completely about YOU (up until the baby is delivered :) and I think you'll find (as I did) that as long as you make any birthing plans you have known to the hospital staff, they are actually very caring and thoughtful and really do respect your wishes... they asked me things like if I wanted an epi, not when... who and how many at a time and when would visitors be allowed to see me/the baby...

    You know my views are skewed because of my first labor/delivery experience with Matthew... but with Kenzie it was a dream from start to end (excluding bedrest of course).

    Anyways, I'll get off my soapbox now... we love you and miss you, and those next few boxes are headed out tomorrow!
