This post is dedicated to my cousin Sarah who wrote this to me on November 24th..... "hmmmm....just read your blog and I have strong feeling about your current condition...crying at disney movies, kicking your kid off the toilet, taking naps? is someone preggo? you don't have to tell me, but when it is announced for everyone to know...just remember I already knew! :)"
Sarah was right. Yes, it is true....the Green Monster has returned.
I am happy to announce that I am expecting baby #3 in mid-July of 2010!! :) This picture was taken when I was pregnant with Stella. While this is a terrible picture of me, I feel it best illustrates how I feel during most of my pregnancies.
Pregnancy is not kind to my body. For this reason, Rachel Sheldon turns into a not-so-kind monster. I am not talking about the general nausea, vomiting, & exhaustion which usually stops after 13 weeks for everyone except me. I happen to have an impressive track record which include Bells Palsy, 2 dislocated ribs, excessive weight gain & sickness into my 20th week. I will also mention that my recent ulcerative colitis flare up put me at function level ZERO. I could go on....but I'll save the sob stories.
The colitis has cleared and I am starting to feel much better...slowly getting energy back....and getting super excited!! I just had my unpleasant doctor appointment yesterday and received confirmation that both baby & momma are healthy.
