Not to be a downer but,

I HATE being pregnant! Bring on the labor... that is temporary! This is taking for forever! I am miserable and have only found a little relief through a prescription med that my doctor perscribed. I hope this (part) ends soon!!! I am exhausted. I drag my sorry behind (that's already getting bigger) to work and crash on the couch for the rest of the night after I get home. That reminds me, thank you, again, hunny for being the most wonderful! You have taken a huge load off by cleaning, cooking and pretty much doing everything except for going to work for me.
I am 11 weeks so my due date is the beginning of April. We heard the heart beat and were lucky to get an ultrasound last week. It was so sweet to hear that little beating heart. We love that we are finally experiencing all of this for ourselves!

That is so awesome, not that you're feeling like crap but that you're pregnant! I'm so excited for you! I can't believe September is almost over and we still haven't gotten together (I'm so bad at get togethers). We're going to Disneyland next week, so when we get back I'll call you :) Congrats on the baby!

I was sick for the first 20 weeks, and I was lucky enough that I didn't have to work outside the home, and trust me, I slept ALL the time. If I wasn't sleep I was hanging over the toilet! It will pass!! I loved the 2nd half of my pregnancy.

good luck! it's wonderful that Danny gets into the habit of helping, then it won't so hard for him to help when the babe comes. We are so happy for you! check out this web site: http://www.babooshbaby.com/buckles.html. I wish I'd found it 6 years ago!!It looks so much better than a rubberband holding your pants together!

Congratulations!

And sorry that you've been feeling so sick. Hope that it's only a temporary, 1st trimester thing.

Julee, Yay you are pregnant! You need to call me, you crazy girl. You live in Utah so close to me, and i haven't even seen you yet. Give me a ring. Sorry you are feeling sick. Hopefully just a first trimester thing, then you'll feel much better. Call me soon.

I hear ya! Going to school and teaching while being so sick was no party! I crashed on the couch every night and had absolutely no energy for anything else. Yeah for wonderful husbands. I do hope this passes for you. It got better for me around 20 ish weeks. Then I was just tired. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. But we are very excited for you!

Yip, I hated being pregnant--hated it, hated it, hated it. Everyday I threw at least 7 fits. My husband finally threw away the scale (after I kicked it violently several times). Every Sunday for 9 months I threw myself on our bed and protested going to church because "everyone could see my fat calves." But then I had my baby and I loved her SO freakin' much that I could only remember the sweet things about pregnancy--like feeling the baby kick, and having nine months of just YOU and the baby. I remember the day I went into labor I sat up crying because I knew I was going to have to share her, and at that moment I appreciated what it meant to be pregnant, and for about the next 12 hours I loved it and didn't want it to end (partly because I finally felt how special it was, but mostly because I knew it was going to hurt like hell to get her out).

So...yeah, if anyone tells you to "enjoy" pregnancy, shove a pencil up their nostrils. On the other hand, don't forget to cherish the time when you don't have to share your baby.

Julee Loder George,
I wish I had an email address to write to you, but this will do. I was just reading scriptures & Matt was unpacking & handed me a picture of all 3 of us finishing the Kalalau trail all muddy & happy :) I just started crying & missing you & missing that fun time & just had to write to you & tell you that I hope all is well. & I hope you are happy & I hope you & your hubby have friends that you can go play & get muddy with, or at least some one to give you a hug when you are feeling crummy for 12 weeks. XOXO you always have an aero bed at our place if you're in the area.
