pregnancy is "sacred"

i think it's not any small coincidence that "sacred" and "scared" are basically the same word, like one little typo...

i'm 5 months pregnant now. it's so strange that it still feels really brand new...i'm not at all used to it yet. perhaps that's because it's NEVER the same. nothing has been predictable for me. here's what my week has been like:
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
those are the only pics i could get that didn't include any amount of girlie get the idea. my entire chest/stomach have been covered in those electrode probe thingies...each connected to it's own colorful wire. i felt like science.

apparently, my heart is not doing such a great job of adjusting to creating life. my heart's been racing and skipping beats like mad...very alarming. so i was in and out of the hospital this week. once my heart finally calmed down, i got slammed with a ridiculous cold/flu/misery type thing. here's something you never thought you'd hear me say...i'm sick of cable television. i'm dying for some human contact. like, real reality...not just my beloved reality tv.

on the upside: we find out monday if the baby has a penis or a vagina. that's right. and i'm definately excited.

there's the update. seems like blogland has been quiet for awhile, and that's fine. if nothing else, i know my mom still reads my blog!

I'll go on the record predicting a girl. And I hope your ticker adjusts to having a little one.

Oh no, that's so scary! It's so odd how our bodies react to carrying another life. Mine will never be the same.

As for the gender, I also say girl. Bring a video tape so they can record the ultrasound for you. It's really cool to watch again later.

All my friends at work who have pregger missuses are having girls, so why not you as well. :)

Hope the ticker issue resolves itself with minimal cost/pain/etc.

Let us know when you want to hang out. We would love to see you and your husband. Send me another e-mail at with your number because I think I deleted the other e-mail where you sent me your number.
I think it's a girl.

Haven't heard from you in a while. Hoping you are feeling good. Little worried about you in cyberland.
