1. What are your hobbies? I used to like to read but haven't really had much time for that lately, I do web design so the internet is a hobby to me, I live about 5 mins from the beach and like to go but again not a whole lot of time for that.
2. Do you play any sports? I was in gymnastics when I was younger
3. Do you watch any sports? No
4. What is your guilty pleasure? hmmmmm I can't really think of anything. I'm sure there is something but my brain isn't working yet today. I'll have to come back to this one.
5. What is your biggest pet peeve? Liears
6. Are you sad you are going back to work or are you ready for it? Both...I was babysitting 2 kids in our house. We had lots of parenting differences. I'm glad to be done with that. I am sad about leaving my kids. I am kind of excited and ready to get out of the house during the day.
7. Do you own a video game system (playstation, x-box, Wii)? We have a Playstation, playstation2 and Wii. dh plays the Playstation & Playstation 2. We all play the Wii
8. What are your favorite games to play (video, online or board)?
Video - Bowling on Wii & Super Monkey Ball on Wii
Online - I used to belong to POGO and liked many of the games (poker, solitaire, etc) but I don't belong anymore so I don't really play online games
Board - Monopoly





can we see pictures of you and DH, kids etc?
Alexis...showing off her new haircut


Alexis...before haircut


Paige




Claire




All 3 girls


Me with all 3 girls


dh & Paige






What's your favorite "Date" with DH (when you can get out without the kids)? Dinner...it is really nice and relaxing to go to dinner and not have to pick out what 2 other people are going to eat and try to eat fast so that the kids don't get antsy and start being naughty. lol
Do you like to cook? Yes
Plans for more kids? HECK NO!!!! I have complicated pregnancies and usually end up on bedrest and medications only to deliver preemies that end up in the NICU. I had a son that passed at 13 days old after being born at 28 weeks with a heart problem. Then Alexis was born at 32 weeks and spent 4 weeks in the NICU. Paige was born at 37 weeks after being on bedrest and medications due to going in to PTL at 25 weeks. Claire was born at 35 weeks 6 days and was gasping for breathe and spend 16 days in the NICU. I REALLY don't think I could do another NICU stay with 3 kids at home...it was hard enough doing it with 2 kids at home. dh had a vasectomy right before Claire was born.
How did DH feel about your NCB? He didn't really care either way. Alexis was a natural birth because there wasn't time for anything. Since she was a 32 weeker they were to busy getting the respiratory team, cardiac team, NICU team and whoever else they had to get in the delivery room. I was never offered anything. So dh never had a choice. (My son was aslo natural for the same reason but he was not my husband's child). With Paige I planned on going natural just cause I did it the 2 previous times. I gave in to pushy nurses and got Stadol. Almost immediately my contrax & labor stalled. I was 7cm. Several hours later (way after the Stadol wore off) I accepted Pitocin since my labor was still stalled. I regretted getting the Stadol as I feel it stalled my labor. So with Claire I was determined to go natural and knew I could because I didn't feel the Stadol did anything for the pain. dh knew I was unhappy with the way things went with Paige so he didn't really care either way with Claire. He pretty much figured it was my body and I would be the one that would be in pain so it was my choice.





Just letting you all know....
Please feel free to keep asking. I may not be on much the rest of today or all through the weekend. I will try to pop in and answer them but if I don't get a chance I will come back on Monday and answer them.
I got my period back on Dec 1st after having Claire and since then I have pretty much had AF constant. It will go away for one or 2 days but then I get it back.
I went to the Dr yesterday and will be having a D&C tomorrow. I have never had one so I don't know how I will be feeling or what to expect. Today I have lots to do to get ready for starting work on Monday since I'm not sure how much I will be able to do this weekend.

That's neat that you have a friend working for Google!!! I've heard that it is a REALLY neat place to work and that they really value their employees.

where did you grow up? Wisconsin...near Milwaukee
How did you meet DH? How long have you been together? dh and I met online almost 8 years ago when it wasn't nearly as popular as it is now. We emailed for awhile, then started talking on the phone then met in person. Our first date didn't go very well...I actually told my friend I wasn't going out with him again. But then the next weekend all my friends had dates or plans and I didn't want to sit around bored so I decided to go out with him a 2nd time. lol
Do you like where you live? Most of the time...
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? I prob would still live in FL...I like the warm weather.
What are your pets names? Can we see pics?
My cat is Speckles. The turtle is Bibbles. The fish are...Marlin (clown fish), Nemo (clown fish), Patrick (star fish), and then 3 blue fish with no names.
I don't have pics of the fish, turtle or cat right now. We just got a new computer on Thurs and I since I had surgery on Fri I haven't transferred pics over yet. These are what were in my photobucket.
Dog - Brownie




What kind of car do you guys have? We have a GrandAm, a Windstar minivan, dh has a blazer and a motorcycle
Do you have any hobbies? I make latch hook rugs
If you got your dream job at google, what job would it be? Web design

The surgery went well. I rested most of the weekend. And fortunately I didn't have to go to work today because they couldn't get all the systems and securities I needed to start. So today I have been running errands and getting stuff done around the house. I haven't been in too much pain...feels like bad AF cramps. We have a hot tub and that has REALLY helped with the pain.
