Oh I was a miserable, bitchy PITA through both my pregnancies. Sick as a dog the first half, (as in, some days I couldn't leave the bathroom floor for hours) utterly uncomfortable the second half. For the second one, I would literally cry driving over a speed bump in the last trimester because the weight of my second putting pressure on the c-section scar from the first was incredibly painful. I had cesarians with both of mine, so I am petrified to have another. Thank goodness for IUD's. Both of mine were planned, but it only took me a week to get pregnant both times, so I didn't really have time to second guess myself. My OB nicknamed me "Fertile Myrtle", lol. I love them both to pieces, but two is plenty for me, thanks. My oldest is a tomboy, but my youngest is all about the girlie - frills, skirts, makeup, jewelry.
I'd love to visit Ireland too. It looks so beautiful there. I love living in NC though, in spite of our rather bi-polar weather.
