Sad, mad and afraid

Hello everyone,

I've been putting this off. I'm no longer pregnant. Found out Friday that it looked like I had a blighted ovum. Started getting cramps yesterday and well there's no doubt now. I found it really hard to be at church today. I know I shouldn't be but I'm mad...mad at God and mad at myself. You see when we decided to have more children I prayed that if this wasn't the right thing not to let it happen. I'm scared now. I really want more children and what if God doesn't want me too.

Luv and Hugs
God Bless
Jo

Been feeling sick today. Think I did too much yesterday. Totally sick of this cold. Lazy day for me. Only finished my morning routine by 1pm. How slack. Really getting sick and tired of clutter too. Trying to decide to stick with having a garage sale or just ring the salvos to come get it. hmmmm

If you want your dreams to come true, don't oversleep.
The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.
The best vitamin for making friends....B1.
The 10 commandments are not multiple choice.
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
Minds are like parachutes...they function only when open.
Ideas won't work unless YOU do.
One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
One who lacks the courage to start has already finished.
The heaviest thing to carry is a grudge.
Don't learn safety rules by accident.
We lie the loudest when we lie to ourselves.
Jumping to conclusions can be bad exercise.
A turtle makes progress when it sticks it's head out.
One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
A friend walks in when everyone else walks out.
AND FINALLY...
The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!!!

New due date and a baby dream

I went to the doctor’s this morning. He’s given me a new due date. It’s the 6th May 2010.  I need to have another ultrasound next week just to confirm it…oh and just to make sure it’s only a single pregnancy. I’m really hoping the due date stays the same coz that’s my Mum’s birthday. It’d be so cool if the baby was born on that day.

I had a dream that I’d had the baby last night and she was a girl. We named her Imogene Grace Joy. I hope that was a message from God. I feel alot more relaxed about the pregnancy now.

Why are some people mean?

I’m serious. Why? It really annoys me when someone says or does something mean. Half the time I don’t even think they realise it.  Other times I think they get some sort of pleasure from making other feel bad. At least I don’t let things upset me the way they used to. I used to end up in tears over silly things people have said to me. Now I get more frustrated than anything. Oh well that’s my little rant for today.

More positive outlook

Oh wow am I tired. I just couldn’t sleep last night. How annoying. But I’m not letting it get me down today. I’ve decided to keep a positive attitude…at least for today. I’ve decided to look on the bright side of not being as pregnant as I thought. It give me more time to make beautiful things for my baby and it also means we might be able to go to Easterfest next year afterall. Big yippee to that one. Although if it is twins I won’t be going at all. It’s Father’s Day today and we had a great service at Church today. I got things accomplished this afternoon too. My darling Chihuahuas are bathed and smelling beautiful at last and the back verandah is washed down and clear of dog poop. All the gardens are watered too. We are having a family meeting tonight to talk about getting some family routines working better and to talk to the kids about their recent bad attitudes. Miss 8 is seriously whining constantly and trying to use tears to get her own way and Mr 10 is just defiant. Looking forward to some improvement there.

Lil Peanut’s 1st Ultrasound

Image0009

Feeling the fool

Well aren’t I the fool. I asked the doctor for a dating ultrasound because I thought I’d got my dates wrong and I might be further along in the pregnancy than we originally thought. Well I did have the dates wrong but I’m only maybe 5 weeks along if I’m lucky rather than 8.5 weeks. They couldn’t even see much at all. I’m probably going to have to have another scan in a couple of weeks. I really feel stupid…and fat. To think I thought I already had a baby bump. It’s just a fat bump. Don’t know what else to say.

Proud of Me

I had a really productive day today. Well at least for a pregnant lady. I got most of my house blessing done. I just need to mop the lounge room and attack the spare room. That’s a goal for tomorrow. I even managed to go have a cuppa and chat with a friend.
