Exhausted and Distracted

I'm so tired I can barely hold my eyes open. I don't remember being this tired with the other two but today I'm useless. I'm supposed to be working but it's so quite in here and I'm feeling pretty cozy! And I'm supposed to be typing our newsletter but I'm so tired I can barely read what to type. It's amazing! I haven't felt this tired in a VERY LONG TIME! It's like the tired when you get after a good meal, in the warm sun, lazy day tired. I'm starting to feel like that yogurt commercial..."This is massage good" or "This is bubble bath good" or "This is a new pair of shoes good" well, I'm like: "About to scream tired!"
I'm also very distracted...I wish I could just forget about being pregnant for about 3 months - just until I'm farther along. It's amazing how much my brain is filled with...What's it gonna look like, is it a boy or girl, wonder how much it will weigh, am I going to get sicker than this, wonder what it's doing right now, what bedding should I pick, carseat, stroller, highchair...I'VE GOT OTHER THINGS TO DO AND THINK ABOUT! I'm just so excited!
I made my first Dr. appointment yesterday for Sept 11 - I'll then be 8 weeks! YAY! I know it's all so new and that's why it is constantly on my mind. It's an unreal thought to me - ME PREGNANT AGAIN! I don't know why it seems so unreal - I've been pregnant twice before, I should be an old pro...BUT, it still amazes me that God has allowed me to have another baby, that another baby will grow inside me for 9 months, and that another baby will be apart of our family!! WHOO HOO! Our God is GREAT, he does AMAZING things, and he is WORTHY of all praise! Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father!
Thank you Jesus for my gift of LIFE!

Hey Cheesehead (that is so fun to call you that by the way) did I see you on a commercial yesterday for Legacy? With one of your kids - swinging him around? Did I? I've got a quick eye! Now I'm gonna start thinking your famous!!

Trace Car Driver said...

i'm having one of those days too... it is so hard to focus sometimes!!! i know how excited you must be - b/c i feel like it was just yesterday that i found out i was pregnant with trace. now he's almost 6 months old!! so instead of wondering what he looks like and all that, i know how cute he is! and it is killin me to sit at work and know his meme is having fun with him. that's life though! well i hope the first trimester flies by for you, with no sickness or queasy feelings. and i can't wait til you go to see dr. a! and get some pics of that sweet baby!!!! GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME! ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD!!!

Page that is how I felt when we first decided to adopt! It's the same whether you're prego or adopting...new LIFE consumes us! I love it!
And yes, I saw Michele on that commercial too. I wonder if she'll come swing my children around like that.
And I cannot believe that Jamie's Trace is already 6 mos. old. That just cannot be right.
Love you!
Laine

awww. how sweet. I am so happy for you. maybe this time will pass by alot quicker than the other two. im still praying that you don't get as sick. You said new bedding, stroller, etc, did you already get rid of all your stuff you had with the other two??

Rachel Garcia said...

i mean to say, you are more than welcome to borrow anything you need from me. If i have it.

Shalita said...

Hey, forget Michele swinging my kids I wonder if she will swing me! By the way, did you know you are pregnant? I remember how shocked you were my whole pregnancy. It makes me smile that you are just as shocked with your own! I must throw in my opinion---DO NOT FIND OUT WHAT THIS BABY IS!!! Just once experience the thrill of hearing on the actual birth date what your baby is. There is nothing like it, and besides it drives other people crazy not knowing. I am going to go ahead and guess a girl just because I don't think you can ever have too many girls in one home. Let the guessing games begin!!! Still praying for a sick free pregnancy-----------ENJOY! Wow, you are going to get to feel another sweet baby moving inside of you----I LOVE THAT PART!!!! And I love you too! Try to stay awake and make sure you are taking your vitamins!

Dollar General said...

Rachel, I know you are praying for me b/c I read your last blog...and if you haven't already stop right now and do so. I was nauseated this morning but it has passed - Praise the Lord...
To answer you question about "stuff" - the carseat is now outdated - Anna used Noah's and you can't use them after so many years - the bedding I could use again, but I love new stuff - Our highchair was DISCUSTING after two babies (so it's gone), my swing broke with Noah - Christy has my traveling swing (I have plenty of time to get that back - or she will get me one off craigslist - HA). So, that's were everything has gone! I do have a baby bed - it needs a new mattress. See this is what goes through my head ALL DAY LONG!!
Shalita - it is HILARIOUS how frustrated people get when I say we aren't finding out! They actually say I can't do it! Well, you don't tell me I can't do something because I'm now out to prove you wrong! I can't wait to feel the baby! I LOVE the second trimester - where you're not as big as a house and you actually feel good! YAY! I've got 7 more weeks. I can do it!!
And Cheesehead just ask Shalita what's like when I consider you famous! HA! I think Shalita is SO famous - maybe you should hook her up with a commercial! HA!

Trace Car Driver said...

oh yeah, i meant to tell you... i like your new scripture! working on that quiverfull :-)

Janet said...

Paige, how did you get so many sweet blogging friends?? Wow, you are so popular....except not as much as Laine who is a super star in the blog world!

And I don't think your brain will go back to normal for a long long time! But oh how veery sweet is a little baby!

Ginger said...

Congratulations! We need to get together and celebrate when we get back! We love you guys!

Southern Cheesehead said...

I gladly answer to the Cheesehead...GO PACK!!!
And it's called cheap talent, Dollar...not famous by any means!

saw Brad and Lisa this weekend and swam in their pool...going back for Labor Day, but Lisa will be at the beach with the girls. The boys are looking forward to it (including my grown one).

Southern Cheesehead said...

Shalita, you just don't even know how sweet those boys can be...God doesn't give us more than we can handle and that's why I don't have to deal with bows, cheerleading and PINK (Praise God)!!! I can't wait until every Friday night I'm going to football games and then watch them all day on Saturday!!!!!

Abbey said...

Isn't it amazing how we can be so exhausted in pregnancy when it comes to working & typing, but when it comes to blogging & typing, the thoughts just flow right out!! Hee Hee...sorry, I couldn't resist! I'm so excited for you guys...3 just makes a great number, if you ask me. Which you did not, but just in case you were wondering if I thought having 3 kids was great or not. I wish I could stop talking. I mean typing. OK. I really gotta go.... Congrats! And I will pray that the nausea & or pukies will stay away!!

I'm gonna tell Craig you're blogging when you're supposed to be typing the newsletter. He's gonna beg me back.
