Pregnancy, Estrogen, and Women

A & more!

Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.

Q : I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?

A: With any luck, right after he finishes college.

Q : What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?

A: Childbirth.

Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.

A: So what's your question?

: My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.

Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?

A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.

: Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labor?
A: Not unless the word 'alimony' means anything to you.

Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?

A: Yes, pregnancy.

A: Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.

: Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?

Second time around,,,,flooded floor,,,,Happy Birthday to my husband Edward...

Happy Birthday to Edward today...he's a wonderful, unselfish husband and I'm blessed to have spent 48 years as his wife...


Last night our den floor was flooded for the second time since Saturday....we have had 14 inches of rain. Another system is suppose to come through on Sunday.

My brother and sister-in-law moved back from Murfreesboro, TN on Monday and he was admitted to the hospital yesterday, Thursday, with Congestive Heart Failure. I had spent the day with him at the hospital and had been home a short while when the water began coming in. Edward had bought a wet and dry shop vac so he used it and I started the towel brigade. Chad and Amy came and helped...when finally the rain slowed and everything seemed to be over I was moving the vac ( full of water)...the top wasn't secured, it tipped over and water was once again out came more towels....

The piano and other pieces of furniture are in the middle of the bedroom ceiling has some damage...but it could be worse...

Sad news for our new den floor....Life At Home Giveaway....

We've enjoyed our new den and new floor for a month...I was away Friday and Saturday to attend grandson, Drew's Perfectly Polished Spring Formal...We received 7 and 1/2 inches of rain in a short period of time....the water seeped in around water pipes in the utility room my husband thinks, ran into the den and ruined a portion of the wood floor. The insurance adjuster was here yesterday and called it flood damage. Of course, we don't have flood coverage.

We had several inches last night and today and tomorrow's forecast is for lots more...another system comes through on Sunday...but we aren't the only ones with problems and some much worse than ours...

On a happier note...please visit Sue at Life At Home for a delightful time of reading and she also is having a Giveaway....beautiful blue and white objects that I want to win!

Wishing you all a blessed week...
