Fifteen Weeks and Feelin' Fine!

15 weeks in my
Dr. Suessian tank
I've been feeling very good the past couple of weeks. I think I mentioned that my first trimester was a nightmare of sickness and fatigue, but I am finally over that - yay!! I'm getting my energy back and, as my friend Sono promised, my wierd dreams have settled down. Over the past few weeks, I've only had a few and all have centered around type of tiny human we may be having. So far I've dreamt that I've birthed:

  • Twins - a perfectly normal boy and girl
  • Identical twin girls + a boy
  • A baby boy and the puppy he brought along from heaven - the baby could speak at birth and I asked him about the puppy. He said, "Well, I knew I'd want a puppy eventually, so I decided to save time." I said, "You couldn't have brought along a baby sister instead?" He said, "Yuck, girls are gross!"
  • A litter of kittens.
  • Twins - a boy with the plastic, muscled body of an action figure, who was really hard to diaper, and a perfect baby girl who was only 3 inches big, but was a really good nurser.
  • A solo baby (not sure if boy or girl) who Michele and I kept putting in a crib on the curb and forgetting that we are parents. We'd remember and rush out and then put the baby back in the crib and go inside.
I really hope none of my dreams come true - except maybe number 1 - that one I could handle, but the others, oy vey! I'd lovingly take the baby part of the last one too, but I'll depend on all of you to remind me that it's not a great plan to put the crib outside on the curb, just in case by then my brain is even more adled.


  1. Hi!! Pregnant women are something special........I had a chimpanzee!! Take care! Anne:-)

  2. OMG!!! Usually when I post LOL, I'm not actually LOL'ing, but this time I actually had tears from laughing so hard!

  3. Oh my! So many dreams about twins and multiples! Maybe they are trying to tell you something ;)

  4. Hi! Yes we are fine. Out of Oslo, at our summer house.... But we are in shock. The bomb in the city is bad, but the attack on the kinds on the camp, terrible!! Little peaceful Oslo and Norway?? Thank you so much for your thoughts!! Anne

  5. Oh, Anne, I'm SO glad you are alright! And I'm so sad about the attacks! We'll pray for you all at church today!

  6. Sono: Maybe! though I really think I'm just having one and I have a feeling its a boy. That's my guess - it will be fun to see if I'm right come January! :)

    Kym: I'm so glad the dreams have settled down, though they ARE pretty funny!

    Anne: wow, an orangutan! Funny!
