Smorgasborg.

by

Dare I say it, I’m feeling pretty good. I haven’t gagged or thrown up in at least two days. Hurrah! May be over my initial snarling that I would never EVER get pregnant again – watch this space. I’ve moved on to other symptoms, but to be honest with you, ANYTHING compared to being sick every 20 minutes for 8 hours straight feels pretty damn good.

Just starting to get impatient for the scan. Though…..the closer the scan gets, the closer my reschduled driving test gets. Yes, I finally pulled my finger out and rebooked it for a Saturday later in January. Seeing as I haven’t driven since October/November when we started the whole IVF thing, it should be pretty awesome. I think I am less likely to be a speed demon (part of the reason I failed last time) this time around considering that I’m not used to driving, and that I have a passenger or two in my stomach.

Cross your fingers.

Also booked my first doctor’s appointment for this Friday. I’m hoping they’re nice, as the doctor I had in town was so good you could be forgiven for thinking we had private health insurance. In a country where everything’s free (including poop on e.r. chairs – no lie, it happened when we took Aussie to the hospital once), one thing sometimes in doubt is quality.

What else, what else.

I’m working from home today, so will actually be at the computer. This means updates, though if they are as thrilling and action packed as this one, I don’t know if you (or I) will be able to handle the adreneline rush.

Oh! Final Twilight-related analysis:

Twilight was okay. At least I wanted to keep reading it until the conclusion. I gulped it up, just don’t think it was anything special. The middle two books were so terrible I would almost have preferred to go temporarily blind rather than have to read them. The final one, though, was actually good. I really liked it. There’s my astute personal opinion.

    I’m so glad you feel that way about the Twilight books. I was beginning to think that I was the only one NOT impressed. My brother’s girlfriend is a fanatic (although not as much as someone else you & I know.. hah). She convinced my brother to read it & now he’s convinced my mother to do so as well. I’m all alone. 😦

    Granted I’ve only read the first one, but I was so unimpressed that I didn’t bother to go out and buy the second one & have absolutely no desire to even borrow it from someone. :/

      Yes. I thought the first one was mediocre – a sort of cheesy romance novel with the added twist of vampires. I didn’t like how misogynistic it seemed. However, at least I wanted to keep reading it. The middle two I would put down for days at a time. They were dreadful.

    The other thing I didn’t like was how painfully obvious everything was. There was nothing that could not be predicted. Plus, who spells ‘Stephanie’ ‘Stephenie?’ It’s just not natural.

    So happy to hear that you’re feeling less pukey 🙂 I can’t wait for the news about your scan!!

      I’m happy too, but a little worried as to what it means that it has totally disappeared! Choosing to (mostly) relax and just enjoy keeping my food down, though.

    I read everything but the Twilight related stuff, as I am only on book 3. I received the set at Christmas, and the last two books I have not read.

    So glad to hear you are feeling better! Good luck with upcoming driving test 🙂
