Random Ramblings

It's amazing what you can buy on Ebay.

Read the comments from prospective buyers. Priceless.


I've hopped on the nausea express. It's puke-tastic. I can't believe how awful I feel. Constant queasiness, like I've been on a small ship in high seas. Unless I actually have food in my mouth, I feel like I'm going to hurl. Last night, I stocked up on fruit and veggies in a probably vain attempt to limit my weight gain. I never felt this bad when I was pregnant before. I just want to crawl into a hole, puke and then die a little.


Why do you have to buy a whole friggin' box of Clementines? I only want three or four at a time. If I buy the cute wooden crate of them, they will go moldy. And do they sell seedless tangerines? Because sitting here, spitting seeds into my hand while trying to type my blog and answer the phone is really pissing me off.

Tell me I'm not the only one that starts singing every time they see a crate of Clementines. Oh my darlin', oh my darlin....


I'm having avocado cravings. I don't even really like avocadoes, nor do I know how to eat them, save scooping them out with a spoon. The colour and consistency is like sick baby poop, and yet, I would crawl on my belly over broken glass to get to one. Go figure.


Olivia started her period over Christmas. This would explain the INSANE high blood sugars of the last few months as well as the attitude, tears, drama and snottiness that have prevailed at the Bedhead household. Oy. And vey.


Either my husband is screwing around on me or he really does love me, because he gave me these for Christmas:

Awesome, awesome stuff. Uses up a bunch of the little beggars, too!

THANK GOODNESS Olivia's okay!

Ginger is popular. With Cass I ate graham crackers, with Rosey, beef jerky. And the thing seems to be to always be eating something. Celery, anyone?

Although it sounds like you're going to be eating a lot of guacamole....

And hubby has great taste.

My father (of all people) started noticing these random high blood sugar readings once a month, for about 4 days, starting when I was about 11. I didn't start my period until I was 12, but we could track my hormonal fluctuations like clockwork. Actually, I started announcing when I was on my period to my parents because they would question me why my blood sugars were so high.

Anyway, I'm really bad about this, but I recommend keeping a calendar. It really helps to know where the spiking blood sugars are coming from, and you can adjust the insulin accordingly.

Sorry about your nausea. I didn't have any with my first baby, but with the second, I had it bad. I'm a home health nurse and I'd have to pull off of the side of the road and throw-up and then go about my merry way. I kept a toothbrush and toothpaste in my drawer at work. But, I'd do it all over again for what I got out of it. (Riley)

Candied ginger is yummy and worked for me last time. My nausea isn't in full effect quite yet but I have to tell you the part about the avocado and just reading the words toothpaste and beef jerky in the other comments have me gagging a little...

And you must have been a very good girl this year - the earrings are beautiful!
