Baby, Guns, Jericho/ Dziecko, Karabiny, Jericho

Baby, Guns, Jericho

January 30, 2009


After turning 35 and much deliberation, Josh and I decided to have our last baby.  Since Josh wakes up with hungry crying babies at night, and he has no chance of deployment for the next 2 years, we decided to have this baby ASAP. 

 

I'm 9 weeks pregnant, due September 1, 2009.  I'm planning to have the baby August 31.  This will be my 5th c-section.  I'm terrified of the surgery, partly because I can feel pain during the procedure, and partly because of the drug, reglan, that makes me panic, which was administered to me the last 4 times.  I finally found out what it was, and you bet I'm going to skip it this time. 

 

I'm feeling horrible; I lie on the bed or couch everyday moaning and complaining.  I no longer cook, clean, shop, leave the house; play with the kids, read, write, take pictures, or smile. 

 

A friend gave me a Netflix membership to keep me company, but I'm mostly too sick to enjoy it.  I've only watched one show so far, but I have to say that it was excellent.  I like it more than 24 and Lost.  It's called Jericho, (season 1 and 2).  It's about what life in a small American town would be like if our country was hit with nuclear bombs. 

 

Jericho has made me think about food and water storage, guns, and raising strong manly boys.  Our safe and organized society doesn't encourage men to be masculine and brave.  Since watching the show, I want Josh to buy some guns, and for all our boys to take some street fighting classes.  There really is a reason for the Second Amendment; who would have thought?

 

My favorite part of the show is Jericho Season 2.  It has more action and less human drama than the first season.  Plus, I like the military presence, and especially the role of Major Beck.  There is just something I like about military uniforms, discipline, order, and honorable military men…maybe I've been living on an army base too long.

P.S. Favorite books this week: Samuel's--Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Isaiah's--39 Clues by Rick Riordan.

Dziecko, Karabiny, Jericho

 

Po moich 35 urodzinach i po dlugich naradach, Josh i ja sie zdecydowalimy miec nasze piate i ostatnie dziecko.  Moj maz sie zawsze budzi w nocy jak male dzieci placza i on tez nie bedzie jechal na wojne przez nastepne dwa lata.  Wiec zdecydowalismy sie miec dziecko od razu zeby on z maly dzieckiem byl przez pierwszy rok. 

 

Jestem 9 tygodni w ciazy i moje dziecko ma sie urodzic pierwszego wrzesnia.  Ale ja mam zamiar urodzic 31 sierpnia.  To bedzie moje piate cesarskie ciecie.  Ja bardzo sie boje tej operacji bo choc mam znieczulenie to ja czuje duzo bulu jak mnie kroja.  Tez przed operacja daja mi lekarstwo na zoladek abym nie zwymiotowala.  Te lekarstwo nazywa sie "reglan" i ja wpadam w panike od tego lekarstwa.  Teraz wiem ze to lekarstwo mi nie odpowiada, i juz nie pozwole aby mi to dali do kropluwki.

 

Ja sie bardzo zle teraz czuje jak jestem w ciazy.  Caly dzien chce mi sie wymiotowac, wiec lerze na lozku lub na kanapie, i narzekam.  Nie mam sily sprzatac, gotowac, chodzic do sklepu, czytac, bawic sie z dziecmi, robic zdjecia, pisac, ani nawet usmiechac sie. 

 

Kolerzanka dala mi taki prezent ogladania filmow na sieci na komputerze.  Nawet tego mi sie za bardzo nie chce.  Ale ostatnio zobaczylam bardzo fajna serje ktora nazywa sie "Jericho".  Jest o tym co by sie dzialo w malym miescie w Ameryce jesli by u nas bomby atomowe wybuchly. 

 

Po olgadaniem tego filmu myslalam o tym czy mam wystarczajaco zapasowego jedzenia i wody.  Tez zauwazylam ze my nie mamy zadnego karabina lub pistoleta.  Moji synowie nie umieja walczyc ani siebie bronic.  W naszych czasach zycie jest spokojne i bezpieczne wiec nie uwazamy to za wazne aby meszczyzni byli silni i odwazni.   Po olgadaniu tej serji, ja chce aby moj maz kupil karabin, i aby moji synowie nauczyli sie walczyc dla samoobrony.  W Amerykansikiej constutucji jest prawo do posiadania broni.  Ja nigdy nie myslalam ze to jest wazne, ale po tym filmie zmienilam zdanie. 

 

Najbardziej z "Jericho" mi sie podobal drugi sezon.  Choc byl krotszy mial wiecej aktcji i mniej dramatu.  Tez w drugim sezonie byli Amerykanscy zolnierze i bardzo mi sie podobala rola dowodcy wojska.  Ja bardzo lubie wojskowe mundry, dyscypline, porzadek, i godziwych zolnierzy…moze na to wyglada ze mieszkam za dlugo na bazie wojskowej.

I watched the first half of season 1 of Jericho. I liked it--I can't remember why I stopped watching. I didn't even realize there was a season 2.

You can tell Samuel that I also love Ender's Game.

I can't wait to see Jericho!!!!
I'm so sorry you are still so sick. I can't wait to find out what you are having. A boy or a girl. Fun Fun....

Sick again, huh! I know that's always been hard on you and yours. I admire you going for it again even though you knew what you were in for! I'm so happy for you having another! I remember you saying you might be done with four but I think odd numbers are always better. :)

Congratulations with the new pregnancy... I'm happy for you! I hope your sickness is short lasting.

Congratulations on your pregnancy - - though sorry you are so sick! I also get really sick when I am pregnant- and the only thing that would really cheer me up is the thought that at least I am sick for a purpose, and will get something out of it! I am not just throwing up for nothing . . . Hopefully it will pass soon for you. We have been trying to get pregnant since last summer - - but it isn't happening. Maybe God knows I wouldn't be able to handle it during Jon's residency (or at least this part of it). Anyway- you are strong and will live through it!

Congratulations on your pregnancy, Sylwia! That's exciting for you and your family. I hope that you get feeling better, I'm sure it is really difficult to manage all that you do and be so sick. Best wishes!

Sorry you are so sick. There is nothing worse than feeling completely exhausted and nauseated with sickness and having no energy to do anything. You need to try taking vitamin B6 and half a unisom at night before you go to bed. That TOTALLY helped me with my nausea especially in the mornings. I took it with all three of my kids and it didn't take the nausea completely away, but it made it more managable so that I could do stuff.

Have you asked your OB for a prescription for Zofran? It's an anti-nausea medication. You should ask Josh about it if Sarah's B6/Unisom concoction doesn't work.

What a beautiful little girl... I have 4 brothers and was the only girl and still turned out feminine enough, but I do love my sports!
