It's a girl! Penelope Melissa will be here sometime in November. We're still deciding if VBAC is the way to go for us (I'm actually leaning more toward a repeat c-section for numerous reasons.) If I do have another c-section, Penelope will be born on November 23rd which is also Dennis' birthday! Crazy right??? As exciting as that is, I'm more than a little bummed that there is a very high possibility that I'll be spending Thanksgiving in the hospital. Sad. It'll be ok - my mom already promised me she'll bring me some Tofurky.
On a funnier note, two nights ago Olivia woke up screaming. I asked her what was wrong through our walky-talky monitor (yes we still use it) and all I heard her say between tears was, "My hand is rotten!" Half asleep, I run into her room and she's completely freaking out saying over and over, "My hand is rotten! It's rotten and it won't stop!" Ok, now I start freaking out. I turn on the light and look at her hand. I don't see anything wrong with it. She's bucking like a bronco on her bed at this point and I find myself yelling, "What is WRONG with you?? I don't understand what you're talking about!!" Then she says, "It's TINGLING!!" Oh my word, her hand fell asleep. I tried to tell her her hand is just asleep and she looked at it for a few seconds and said, "No it isn't" with a really confused look on her face. I didn't even attempt to explain it to her. I just sat with her until it felt normal again and she fell right back to sleep.
Memories I will cherish forever...

So seven long months of trying and a few emotional breakdowns later...I'm so happy to announce we are finally pregnant! Just when I was about to throw in the towel for a while too...God works in mysterious ways.
I'm 13 weeks today. My morning aka "all day long" sickness is starting to get a little better although it's still really bad at night...not to mention the constant indigestion which is really weird because I don't think I've ever had that in my entire life! hahaha.
So far, this pregnancy is WAY different than with Olivia. I pretty much feel like death most of the time, but I'm praying that will fade away in the next few days since I'm starting my 2nd trimester. Oh and I'm already being asked if I'm pregnant so I'm either already showing or I'm already fat...hmmm.
He/she is due November 30, 2010.
Olivia is over the moon excited. At first, she was dead set on it being a girl...but I catch her saying it's a boy sometimes now too. She likes to hug the baby. She also said that if the baby cries she'll just tickle it.
