Not a One-Sided Website

The beauty of this website is that I have full access to it.  I can post what I need to say in order to counter the ridiculous things that sometimes come out of my husband's mouth.  What ridiculous things you ask?  Well, lets start with those names.  This is the first problem we are going to have with a baby.  I have names already picked out for a boy or a girl.  Darren doesn't have a clue what they are.  I'm not going to have a serious discussion with him about names until we know for sure what we are having.  If I mention it now he will make just make jokes and never agree to them.  Good news for him is both names have some kind of airplane/flying connection.  It was not intended, but he may actually like them once we finally talk about it.

I have been off my birth control pills for just over a week now.  I never considered it before, but these pills are just like any other medication.  Once you stop taking them there may be side effects.  For the past few days I have been feeling awful.  I've been tired, achy, and slightly nauseous.  I'm much better now, but at the time I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me.  I did a search online and it seems to be pretty common.  I guess when you have been taking a certain pill everyday for years your body just doesn't know how to react when its stopped.  One big concern I had was acne.  I used to have it really bad when I was a teenager and I even took Accutane in high school.  When I was on the pills I would always end up breaking out during that one week a month.  I thought for sure I would have a problem when I stopped, but I haven't had a single zit yet.  I hope it stays that way.


  1. Well get used to the body aches and nausea because that is the wonderful feeling of morning sickness. Maybe you'll be lucky and won't get sick but I did not have fun my first trimester. The smell of eggs still make me nauseous!!

  2. Kelli, I like Darren's names better. I mean, you just can't go wrong with Charles Lindbergh Jamal Jesus Kawasaki Byrd. I think you should totally throw in an additional middle name though, Charles Lindbergh Jamal Jesus Kawasaki Boeing Byrd. Has a nice ring to it. I still can't believe you're going to have a kid, I thought I'd never see the day!
