Random Thoughts (by James)

  • Are all pregnancies as crazy as all of ours have been?
  • I witnessed Amanda at her finest last night. She is no doubt the strongest person I know. In the midst of what we thought would be a tragedy, she remained calm, collected, hopeful, and thankful to be a child of God.
  • I think our baby was break dancing last night.
  • I witness my wife drink a half gallon of Orange Juice this morning in less than 15 minutes.
  • Where did this "plum-sized" clot come from?
  • Bub last night, "I really thought this one was going to work out since it was going so well."
  • When do we officially start the 2nd trimester? I say 13 weeks 3 days.
  • Bub is sick today. Puked all over the bedding aisle at Babies R Us this afternoon, followed by a vomit session in the car."
  • Amanda thinks we should schedule a baby shower at Gatti Town. Funny wife that I have.
  • I spoke to 3 RNs, an Ultrasound tech, and 1 ER doc last night. None of them had heard of a heterotopic pregnancy.
  • I think the same medical personal I spoke to last night were quietly impressed by both Amanda and my knowledge of "pregnancy speak".
  • Waiting in the ER makes me feel like I am the same setting as buying a car.
  • Why is it so hard to think of names for the baby that we can agree upon?
  • I almost had 3 wrecks trying to drive Amanda to the hospital last night.
  • Amanda wanted a chicken drumstick from Popeye's last night. I would have driven to get her one if they had been open.

No. Not all pregnancies are as crazy as yalls... you are special! ;)

Sometimes it stinks to be "special"!

Amanda IS pretty darn amazing. (And you are too, James.)

I have never known 2 non-doctors that can "out speak" a doctor like you two can. I think that you could clep out of med school and start a ob office in your home.

I know! You could just let me name the baby, That solves a few problems all at the same time. :)

You know what I hate? That your kids have lost the innocence and joy that should come with knowing a new sibling is on the way. It's so unfair.

Thanks for your thoughts, James.

James, you totally crack me up. You're ridiculous. Thanks for making light of our insane life. I actually REALLY appreciate it.
