Something else yummy!!!

Again, needing to drink things that I do not really like, I am trying different ways to have my milk. I think I have found the answer. Milk with Strawberry quick AND a squirt of Hershey's chocolate syrup. Mix it up in your magic bullet and it gets frothy! Yum Yum!

For those of you who do not know, I do not love water! I was doing well to drink 3 bottles a week before baby and now I am drinking 2 ltrs a day or more!!! I am tired of water! I am trying to stay away from the splenda stuff and nutrisweet stuff....this brings us to Kool-Aid!!! Oh yes, Lemon-Lime....last I tried to be good and not add the whole cup of sugar that it called for...I just added 3/4 cup and it is sooooo good!!! You should try it! It went very well with Taco's!

Crazy Dreams

I know that I have heard that sometimes pregnancy dreams can be strange...well, last night, I had a dream so real and so strange that I woke up very very upset. We are not finding out the sex of our baby so we are still tossing around names. We have decided upon a boy name but not a girl one yet. Anyway, we are POSITIVE about the boy name and there is really nothing that I can think of that would make us change that name. Anyway, I had a dream that I had the baby and it was a boy, I held him and smelled him and everything. When we left the hospital, we got the birth certificate and his name was Gabriel James Haddon...... nothing at all like what we are wanting to name our son. I was distraught!!! I called my mom and asked her what in the world we were going to do. I told DH about the dream this morning and he said, no big deal, we could just change it on the birth certificate! So, he was able to calm me down a bit! Have you ever woken up from a dream and been scared and mad all at the same time? I am so tired this morning from being so upset in my dream. The whole Gabriel thing could be because I fell asleep last night watching Hero's....not really sure but I do think this is sorta funny!

Well, so far, I can not tell if I am having cravings or not. It has not been anything like I see on TV!!! I know, my life is NOT like TV, but you know since this is the first pregnancy for me, TV is all I have to compare it to. I have been drinking milk which is a major deal for me....I hate milk but I have been drinking a bit these past few days. Also, this weekend, I was really hungry for that fried rice that you get at one of the places where they cook it in front of you. Well, needless to say, I convinced DH to go to a place that will remain unnamed and it was YUCKY!!!!!!! I was sooo sad. It just totally made me depressed because I had been looking forward to it all day. But, we didn't go to THE Place!! We went to an imitator and that is why it was so nasty!!! Will we ever learn? I do love TUMS!!! Am needing it a lot these days and will probably need it after I finish this bag of chili cheese Frito's!!

small update

Not too much to report. Had my check-up and have gained 2 lbs. Feeling great except getting a lot of headaches. I am drinking a lot of water but I am still getting them from time to time. Also, I think....I am not sure but I think I felt flutters yesterday. I am not sure what that feels like but I did feel something different during church yesterday. So, if that is what it was, that is very exciting. I also went to the True Woman '08 Conference in Chicago and had a blast. I got spoiled by some great friends and was treated to a shopping spree at Motherhood!!! I will try to post some pictures soon. So many highlights from the weekend. I would encourage you all to check out True for some highlights. thanks to those of you who do keep up with me here.
