I'm alive!

Just wanted to convince you that I'm alive and mostly well; these days I'm feeling more like Frankenstein's monster than the lively doctor, but I'm sure I'll be in better shape soon.

I've been revisiting exhausted-and-nauseated land lately, and boy it seems to suck worse the second time around! I made a whiny call to my medical office and was told to stick to bland foods, extra liquids and plenty of rest - talk about "DUH!!" advice!

I was actually insulted that I wasn't told to at least pee in a cup - but apparently none of my weird-ass symptoms add up to anything to be concerned about, I'm assuming because "the kid"/"Gozer"/"Baby Rampage" continues to use my uterus as a private mosh pit. My midwife was out of the office, and apparently the male OB/GYN who took my message didn't understand how creepy it is to feel like your unborn child is kicking you IN the cooter? I damn near expected to see a tiny foot sticking out!

When work slows down a bit and I'm less obsessed with sleeping non-stop I'll get back to visiting all my bloggie friends. . . . what's new with you anyway??

Madame DeBarge sent me the most fantastic baby blanket EVER and I am both rude and a lame-ass fool for not having posted a photo of it yet, much less written her a thank-you.

My roller derby team has their first home bout this Saturday. I'm really looking forward to the spectacle, and really looking forward to getting my life back for a little while afterwards. "Volunteer Coordinating" is not for weenies, and possibly not for somewhat-sickly pregnant women. I've had a ball being so involved with the league, but hope to high heaven that getting the next two home bouts arranged is much much easier than this!

I'm so glad you liked it! I was just thinking "damn, I need to email her and make sure she got it". For like 2 days. So I'm totally down with the forgetfulness!

So happy to see you posting again!

Good to see you are alive and you really are a lame ass for not posting photos.

I feel for you having to deal with volunteers, especially if your volunteers have to actually *work* and can't see the bout. Can't live with 'em, can't put on a bout without 'em.

Sorry to hear tha you are in icky-land aagain at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel to this round. Hey, there'll be a light at the end of the tunnel for the baby too. Hmmmm ironic how we come into existence seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and exit the same way. (oohh wierd) :)
