Time to Call Dr. House?

I've been having some "health" problems lately that are rather disturbing. Here are a few of the symptoms I'm dealing with:

>My hair is falling out by the fist full.

>My skin is broken-out and my fingernails are growing at warp speed.

>Today I made myself an omelet for dinner and then voluntarily ATE IT!

>The minute I wake up in the morning I start calculating how soon I can reasonably go back to bed.

>Jeans that were loose when I bought them have now taken on the characteristics of Spandex which I must now pour myself into each day (at around noon).

>I have to eat ice cream every single day. (Okay, so maybe that's not really a new thing...)

>I have to wake up once (sometimes twice) every night to pee.

>I burp frequently but have to be sitting straight up to do so. (I know...so unladylike...my mother would be appalled...)


So is it time to visit a specialist? Is it a tumor? A strange disease? A rouge strain of the bubonic plague????
Nope...

It's a BABY!!!

Expected end of symptons: Mid May

Yea!!! Congratulations!! What fun! I hope some of those symptoms ease up before May - I would hate for you to be bald with 10 inch finger nails for the arrival of your new little one!

hoorah! now our baby will have a cousin in the same grade. (although i'm expecting her to be a genius so she may be in med school by puberty.) i'm rooting for a girl!

Foot Handle Pete said...

the above should say "girl" but i'll settle for an "irl"

-p.d.

Very Exciting, I wonder if the baby will talk like a new englander? Congratulations FHP

I think either an irl or an oy would be great! Let me know if you want me to chop up some Tums and send them to you. It's a good thing Dr. D will be making some good money soon so he can fly me out to take care of the lil'one.

Well, it's all going to change now. I don't think I'm ready for 3 kids, I'll wait and see how you handle it! BTW, isn't your hair supposed to be fabulous until after the baby comes out? I can't lose anymore hair or I'll have to invest in Rogaine!

Congratulations sweet Emily. You will have our 21st grandchild. Wow, this will cost me me more Disney dollars over the years, but I can handle it if you can. I think my part will be easier. Besides the negatives of hair and fingernails, the good part is, you won't have to go on "The Tower of Terror or The Rockin Roller Coaster", in March. We Love You, Dad
