Did anyone answer the pet peeve question? I can't stand it when people don't wash their hands. I cant tell you how many family members I have that will come out of the bathroom without washing. That's not just something you do in public people! Ewww.

If you could meet one actor and one actress, who would they be?

I love Facebook! I'm on it more than any other website. And I don't mind all the changes it's going through, either. Can't wait to announce the pregnancy on there!

Have you ever given birth before? If so, what was your experience and would you make any changes?

I've been through 3 births! My first was not what I thought or planned at all. My water broke and I labored (naturally-no one single painkiller and on pitocin) for 30hrs and got stuck at 5cm. Had to have a c-section. Turns out he engaged crookedly when my water broke and was literally stuck with his head towards my pelvic/hip bone instead of directly on my cervix and being that he was a good-size, couldn't move in the position he needed to. They said that even if he would have, my hips were so close together, that they're not sure he could've got his huge head and shoulders through my hips, anyway. But, he got here safely and healthy, and I was safe and healthy, too. I know so many people knock c-sections, but I am one of the cases where I am SOOO thankful for modern medicine. The drs told me that I would be one of those cases so many years ago where both my son and I would've died in childbirth without having a section available to me.

And, since no one in my area will do VBACs, I had 2 other scheduled sections. Not so bad when you don't have to labor for 30hrs beforehand, LOL. My babies have all been big and healthy, even when born by sections, thank God. They said because of the distance between my hips and the size that all of my boys have been, that even if there were a dr who did VBACs, they'd probably tell me I wouldn't be a good candidate for it, given the history of my babies size and especially head size. Heck, my youngest had to have the vacuum suction to pull him out of my section incision, LOL! She cut as wide of an incision as she could given my hips and still had trouble getting him out.


Do you vacation regularly? If so, where? Also, where is your fav vacation spot, even if it's not the one you go to most frequently?

We do vacation often. We take lots of trips to the mountains (Gatlinburg) and do a couple days at a indoor water park and a couple days in a cabin. Those are our favorite vacations because we feel we get the best of both worlds. Have a blast at water park but still get to relax unwind and just have some good family time in the cabin. We use to enjoy beach vacations until we lived on the beach for awhile with the USMC, so it kinda lost it's "vacation" feeling.


Did you eat a healthy breakfast this morning?

What's your favorite ice cream topping?

I'm not a TV person. Shut it off like um... 9 years ago? And haven't looked back. That being said I was hooked on Survivor last season because my IRL friend Dawn Meehan was on it.

What brought you to JM?

Ice cream topping? Strawberries. The syrupy, sugary kind. ;-)

Is there a room in your house that you would be embarrassed for someone to see?

I can't remember what brought me to JM! It was when I got pregnant with DD over 3 years ago!

My closet hands down. Everything else we keep pretty clean.

If money wasn't an issue, and you could have another home anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I want a LOT of children. At least 3, maybe 5, maybe more. I dunno. Both DH and I agreed that we will decide when we are done later and both kinda feel like we will just know when we are ready to be done!

Do you prefer a bath or a shower?

I think people take facebook too seriously. I use it for entertainment purposes only. I don't post person stuff on there. I use it to play Words With Friends. I hate that people use it to try and recruit me to their religion and people that post about their dramatic lives. LOL. I have been introduced to new music because of facebook though.

Do you collect anything?? (I collect Tigger).

Hmmm... I love a good foodie-type scent like "Kitchen spice" or something. Maybe I should light it next time I watch a cooking show?

Would you consider having a doula attend this birth?

Actually yes, I have considered it a lot. I can't decide and I plan on talking with my dr and asking his opinion on it. I would like to try to go natural we shall see... lol

Are you making a birth plan?
