Dear Baby,

I'm am now 20 weeks pregnant.

Which means you, my baby, are officially half baked!

I celebrated by eating some Ben & Jerry's Half Baked ice cream. Yum!

Only about 20 more weeks until I get to see your beautiful face. I can't wait!

I love you already.

Sincerely, Lori

Dear Kurt,

I'm back on the computer!

I finally feel like I am getting control of being sick. I still feel awful, but I know when it's okay to drive myself to the doctors and when I need someone to take me. I know when I can eat a regular dinner or when I should stick with mashed potatoes. I know when it's okay for me to be up and around for a bit or when I need to lay on the couch as still as possible.

Basically, I still feel awful and I still HATE being pregnant and I wish every second of every day that I could get better, BUT I no longer wish someone would put me out of my misery.

I'm still a crappy mom. And a crappy wife. And a crappy home keeper. But I can finally take all those letters I wrote on my phone for the past few months and get them on this blog.

Well, I'll probably leave out the most whiny ones that I wrote while lying next to the toilet all day and night. Those can get pretty redundant.

I'll backdate all the letters to when I actually wrote them so you may have to go looking for them.

I love you.

Sincerely, Lori
