Which Disney Princess Are You?

Kade at 33 weeks and 2 days

Ok so really it's not Kade, it's me getting more pregnant everyday. But, if you had x ray vision as many super heros do you could see Kade.
I have been pretty lucky I figure for this pregnancy. I feel pretty darn good, only minor annoyances, (Which I will still complain extensively about). It could be so much worse and believe me I know and have seen sooo much worse. So I know that I am blessed, But since I am journaling through my rage now, here you go. I have some very enjoyable pregnancy tendinitis. It is quiet lovely. Because of the fluid overload, the swelling causes my hands and wrists to swell and put lots of pressure on the nerves etc, causing some very unenjoyable ouchiness and loss of some fine motor skill in the good ole hands. It's especially awesome at night when I want to sleep its the worst, it burns like the dickens. And also at work it's nice when I can't spike an IV bag, or I am trying to start an IV. hee hee. Yeah I've been making a habit of telling my patients right before I stick them, "Now I want you to know my hands are kinda numb and a little jerky, so forgive me if I don't get this the first couple of pokes." Just joking I really don't tell them that. It is my little secret. And I still can get it on the first try so no one prego or coming to EIRMC fear. I got it all under control.
It is fun to feel him move around in there. B on the other hand I think gets darn near nausea if he has to feel my stomach or even see it move. The other night he was laying by me and saw some minor movements, and he just got up really fast and said in disgust, "What is the deal? Why is he causing so much trouble." He makes me laugh. Apparently the guy that can pull a calf out of a cow with chains isn't going to fair as well in the delivery room. I gotta love that cow hand.

Scout Master?...What?..(screaming) WHAT?

This last weekend I was working. On sunday after my shift I was driving home talking to B on the phone, he seemed pretty down in the dumps. I asked him how church was. Thats when he dropped the bomb on me.
"I got called as Scout Master." Many things went through my head. My first response was, "Thats are gonna be really good at that." In my head I'm thinking, "There goes my husband that I have enjoyed so much. It was nice while it lasted."
That was pretty crafty of the bishop since I was working and all when he called him, sustained him in sacrament meeting and even set him apart after church. I didn't even get to be there. Which maybe was a good thing cause I may have objected. I guess we have had it pretty easy coasting under the radar since we've been married. Never in a place long enough. No kids. pretty much we have been living the high life. Nothing to tie us down or demand our time, besides our jobs. Already I felt like mutual tonight was the other woman. Baby coming in a couple months. I guess it's time for the honeymoon to be over. How sad.
We truely have claim over nothing and no one.

Ode to my job.

For anyone that may not know me or hasn't read through my blog I am a labor and delivery nurse. I love my job. One huge enourmous reason I love my job is because it makes me laugh sometimes. This may surprise you but there are some people in this world that aren't that brilliant. Me being one of them.

I want to give a little shout out to a gal that called me on the phone the other day.

Her: "I have a question, could I talk to a nurse."

Me: "I'm a nurse."

Her: "Well I am 38 weeks pregnant and I am already dilating. Is it ok if I get a bikini wax?"

Me: "Um.... I think that is ok, take some tylenol...I guess."

In my head,..."Personal preference I don't think I need to be in on this decision."

We all had a good laugh over that when I hung up. I told my compadres and Marsha a fellow nurse said, "You should have told her, "Oh yes please do, we prefer it." Yeah that would be great if some girl out there goes telling people in the community that a L&D nurse told her we prefer her to get a bikini wax. That would be just great.

We get some great calls. Some of the best come in the middle of the night like at 3 in the AM and a lot of times begin with, "Can I get pregnant if....?" and you can fill in the rest with pretty much any thing. Oh,....good times, it makes it a really fun job. But don't get me wrong there are plenty of other fun things too.
