>Happy ICLW!

>Hey there!
Thanks for visiting!
Just a quick bit of info…
I am *gulp* on the verge of 40. (May 6th oy!)
I am married to a very tall and sweet man.
I would have loved to have 5 or 6 very tall and sweet children.
But that was a little more difficult than I anticipated.
First, Mr. Right was late.
Then, I had two ectopic pregnancies.
Wonky tubing.
We turned to IVF.
Our son N was born in January 2008.
Frozen cycle, and I am now pregnant with a girl (eeeeek!) due in May 2011.
I will be 40 when she shows up, and then I am so so so done.
Other things?
I am a huge dork.
I am a horrible cook, but trying to get better at it.  I like to post recipes sometimes.
I am tired all the time.
Motherhood, while wonderful, totally kicks my ass.
I am petrified of a 2nd.
I have a lot of gray hair.
This mothering thing does not come so naturally to me.
Therefore, I complain a lot.
Especially about being tired all the time.
I like to do crafts, but who has time for that crap anymore?
I am in a constant battle with my weight.
I try to keep a sense of humor at all times, but it doesn’t always work.
I love bath stuff.
I love chocolate.
I have gestational diabetes so I can’t eat chocolate.
Someone better bring me some damn chocolate the minute this kid pops out of me.

The end.

I bet you wish you had skipped this blog huh?

    >Yes, it is Tuesday! Sorry, I couldn't resist… Since I am actually posting this on a Tuesday. :)I am here from ICLW (#158) and am glad that I did NOT skip this blog. I really enjoyed reading your intro post. 🙂 Very fun and interesting! I am sorry for your losses and so happy to hear about your son and daughter on the way! I also had an ectopic pregnancy prior to doing IVF (during our 5 year journey through secondary infertility). I just ate a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie in your honor (since you are craving chocolate and can't have it, which really sucks). Enjoy ICLW and I wish you a happy and healthy remainder of your pregnancy! 🙂

    >What a great introduction! Congrats on your little girl. Sorry to hear about your GD, I had it too and I'm now battling pre-diabetes and acid reflux – so chocolate is a no-no. Have some for me when your little girl is born.ICLW #25

    >congrats on the baby girl. We're ttc number 2 and as much as I want another baby I am terrified of having 2… motherhood kicks my ass too but I love it.

    >Ugh, the dreaded GD… I'm sory. I can empathize, my wee girl is three months old today, and I think the last of my very ugly insulin induced bruises have faded away finally. Blessings on you as you continue your journey.ICLW
