I used to love going to the doctor when I was pregnant with Porgie. It was so exciting to hear the baby's heartbeat. And more importantly, it put my mind at ease knowing that she was growing and thriving in my womb. With Izzy, the appointments were more of a hassle, but I still looked forward to hearing my baby boy. But this time? Doctor appointments are such a pain in the ass. Seriously, do I really need to come in EVERY WEEK? Geez! I understand that the doctors just want to make sure everything is fine, but I wouldn't hesitate to make an appointment if I suspected that something was wrong. It is just a lot of work to make it to all these appointments.

Summer, oh how I hate you. Why is it so freaking hot outside? Is a 100 degrees really necessary?

My children keep getting sick, and it is beyond annoying. It is summer time dammit! I thought kids only got sick every other week in the winter. But every time I turn around, someone has a runny nose or a cough. Ugh.

I am currently trying to teach my daughter to tie her shoe laces. It all started because Porgie wanted me to teach her to crochet. I told her that after she learned to tie her shoes, I would teach her to crochet. She promptly ran to the closet and got a pair of shoes. I showed her how to tie them a few times, and then she decided that she no longer needed my help. So, she spends large portions of her day trying to tie her shoes, while crying in frustration. She gets it right 1 out of every 10 attempts. It must be tough to be five. I can assure that it is extremely tough being the mother of a five year old.

My husband has informed me that he will be out of town the first week of August. I will be 38 weeks pregnant. Is he trying to make me have a nervous breakdown? What if I go into labor while he is gone? I don't even have any family in NJ to rely on in his absence. I would be completely alone. John also has some big week long work conference thing in Atlanta, GA in September. I will have a ONE MONTH OLD. Just thinking about it pisses me off. I know that he has to fulfill his work obligations, but I can't help but be a little disappointed.

The muffler on my van is hanging down at an odd angle. We have a million speed bumps in our neighborhood and every time I go over one, I can hear the muffler scrap the blacktop. So now, in addition to all the other insane expenses that keep popping up, we have to have my muffler fixed. AWESOME.

I have more to bitch about, but I think I'll end this post before you become bored with my pity party.

They want you every week now? I'm at every three weeks and then after next week, at 36 weeks, I think every two weeks. Sweden is so relaxed.

Sorry about the out-of-town husband. That blows.

I'm still on the every 4 weeks but really I go next fri and it will be 6 weeks and last time was 7 doctor is nice we come from an hour away and she lets me get away with it for now...last year this time I was going every two or three days before the baby sucked. Like you my husband goes away all the time for work and I'm stuck here with a 3,2,1 and the only people I know is his dad that lives 3hrs away
