addendum

case in point. I got halfway through that last post and couldn't remember all the ironic parts of my life I had meant to share, so I just ended it.

Mr Renn spoke in church Sunday. I didn't get to hear him, as I was taking my shift at entertaining Sir O and his horrific cough at home. Apparently he mentioned me, and the fact that I'm pregnant, and the fact that I've felt so sick that I occasionally wish for death. Every single person who heard that talk and has since run into me has asked me how I'm feeling.... or something to that effect. (Or asked me if I'm wearing green to match how I feel, etc.) Plus some comment about how they loved Renn's talk and then some comment about how they do or do not know how I feel. Chances are nobody knows quite how I feel. To the best of my understanding, most everybody has had it either much worse or much better than me. I do not vomit enough to require an IV or to rot my teeth out, and I only feel like death warmed over for 20ish weeks rather than 40 (knock on wood), but I also am pukey enough that I'm not going to feel better if I drink a diet coke or don't take my prenatals. So pretty much any and all well-intended sympathies mixed with advise are making me either feel like a pansy or making me roll my eyes. Which isn't to say that I don't want sympathies or advise, just letting you know how I'm reacting to them.

On another ironicish note; after doing absolutely nothing for 26+ years, the single wisdom tooth that my mouth saw fit to house a tooth bud for has decided to break through my gums. My dentists in the past always opted to leave it alone because it showed no signs of moving. But now that I'm pregnant for the 2nd time, it's decided to come through. AND since I'm pregnant I can't get it removed at least until the baby is born, if not later, unless I want to do it without pain meds. So much for the thousands of dollars my parents spent on braces, my teeth are going to have to do some moving in the coming months and I'm sure the relactin in my system is going to make it worse and I am not a happy camper. On the bright side Renn needed some orthodontic points to graduate. On the less bright side, it will still cost money. And money is not that abundant, didn't you know.

Okay, now my brain is blank again. Hopefully I'm not adding an addendum to my addendum

I think you and I were in the same boat morning sickness-wise. I felt just the way you described. Not hypermesis, but miserable enough to wonder if "this too shall pass." Ugh!

And I'm laughing about your phone and the pizza thing because I've so been there.

Indeed, life can be rather ironic sometimes.

Feeling crummy is feeling crummy- doesn't matter one whit how anyone else felt- ever. Sorry it's so hard right now... I think it's finally time I got a package in the mail to you- it'll have a a joint present from someone else who loves you too...

My wisdom teeth did the exact same thing when I was pregnant with Kmy second child. I had actually just found out like the night before they were supposed to pull them out that I was pregnant. I decided to take a test just in case to make sure before I had the work done.
After months of NOT being pregnant all of a sudden there was that second pink line. Perfect timing. I had them taken out anyways with just the local anesthetic. It was manageable until I got three dry sockets. Oh did I mention we were in the process of driving to California to move here??? Yes, a few weeks pregnant, in a loaded car, no place to live and three dry sockets... It was lovely. P.S. The dentist told my whole family I was pregnant after I told him not to say anything cause I had just barely found out. Seriously?? I feel your pain my dear...
