When I Needed It The Most


I get it.

I now fully understand how important it is to have the love and support of so many whether in person or over the Internet.

When I wrote my last post I had all types of feelings going through me.  But the one that consumed me was FEAR.

You awesome ladies (and guy) waisted no time sending me your support and kind words.  Thank you.  Even after I write the words, it just doesn't seem like enough.

I did have my Prenatal Orientation last Wednesday.  It was a very long day.  I got briefings, and numbers, and watched videos, had urine taken and many,, many, tubes of blood.  After all of that I was BEYOND exhausted.  And guess what?  I didn't even get to see my doctor.

I know.

It's ok though.  I am fine.  Bubby is fine.  Oh, I didn't tell yall?  Lael has named my belly Bubby.  Cute huh?

I have my 10 week appt scheduled for Oct 30, I will turn 11 weeks the very next day. 

You know what that means right?  I am officially 3 months pregnant!!  Don't believe it to be true?  Check out the evidence for yourself.

I've only gained about 5 lbs so far so lets keep those fingers crossed.

The doctors are well aware of my RH Negative status and hopefully will get a schedule of my shots when I go in.

I also hope that I will be told I can attempt to have this one naturally even though I had Lael via C-Section.

I left work early today.  Wait let me back up.  So remember I told you all I was afraid to get the Flu Shot?

Ok, so they urged that I get it right away, but they were all out.  So I contact the clinic in the Pentagon last week and they were out too.  They told me to call back today to see if the new shipment came in.

So I did.

The guy answers and I explain myself and ask if they got a shipment in.  He says no.  I politely ask if he knows when they expect it.  And get what he says to me.

"When the rest of the world get it."  Yes, that fucker said that to me.  It's all good though.  Best believe I took care of that. 

It pays to work for people in high places.

So I called the clinic on base where I live and they were SUPER nice and SUPER helpful and told me that had them in and for me to come right away because they aimed to have all pregnant women vaccinated.

So that is why I left work early.  So I'm all vaccinated and stuff.  I feel ok about it.  I mean if you rode the Metro train like I do everyday and listen to people hack and scratch their asses and touch everything it would gross you out enough to get the shot too.

It's been a long week for me.  I am back in school.  I am taking Accounting and Humanities.  Screw you Accounting.  The end.

Wow, I realize I am all over the place.  That's what happens when I go so long without blogging.

I guess that hardest part about everything that I'm going on is that my best friend moved away.  Not just far away, but like a totally freakin' different COUNTRY away.  Germany.  Boo.

I have had friends.  Many to be exact.  Some have lasted.  Some have not.  Some kind of hang in the balance.  But only once in my have I had someone who I instantly clicked with.

I love her and her family so much it hurts.  I am sad that she will miss my whole pregnancy.  The one she convinced me to finally go through with.  But she'll be back.  I am sure of this.

Ok, so I guess my point was, I'm ok, Bubby is ok, you guys totally rock and I love yall, I hate going to school but it must be done, and I really miss you Carlota.


  1. So this will be a June bug? Love that belly pic---I regret now that I didn't take more during mine. So I suppose I won't hold my breath on getting our flu shots when it took your pull to get one!

  2. I'm sure it's so surreal! But yes, there's a baby in there, and that belly is so stinking cute :)

  3. I'm so glad s/he is okay and that you got your shot.

    I am so sorry about your friend moving to Germany. As someone who doesn't make friends easily, I know how hard that can be.

    Congrats on only 5 lbs...cute little bump is a-comin!

  4. Number two was really scary for me for some reason.

    I'm glad that all is well with the pregnancy! You look so cute already.

  5. Well, it sounds like things are going well so far!

  6. YAY - so glad you were able to get the vax. Bubby - how cute.

  7. I'm glad everything is okay and that you got your shot.

    What's with the attitude from that guy anyway. Glad you took care of it! :)

  8. Cute pic!

    I'm so excited for Lael. She's had got to be just writhering with anticipation!

    I'm sorry about your friend. To lose (physically) someone that just "gets you" no matter what, is hard.

    Keep on taking care of yourself!

  9. Yes~~~I MISS you too! HUGGGGGGGGGGGGSSSSS! Of course I will be back~~:)

  10. Sooo glad that things are going well for you! And you're doing so much! You're like super-prego-mom lol. When I was in your stage of pregnancy, with all three, I could barely lift my head out of the toilet lol.

  11. I love how you don't take sh*t from anyone. Glad you got that gut put in his place!

  12. Aw how nice that you are doing well, you belly is adorable. I wanna a baby toooo. :P

  13. You are looking so cute! Love that little belly. I miss Carlota too. I almost started crying when I read that part. At least we have blogs to keep in touch!


Those laughing with me...or at me.
