Meme: Obvious Questions

Borrowed from judecorp:

There's a huge chunk of you out there whose LJs I read every day - but in a lot of cases, I don't know how old a lot of you are, or where you live, or basic, normal things.

This is the problem with LJ - we all think we are so close, and while we know about the day-to-day, there's still a lot we don't know about each other. So let's rectify it.

I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. I promise, I will not make fun of you, or say who asked what; I won't divulge any social security numbers and stuff, but I'll try to answer everything - personal, fandom - whatever.

I then invite you to do the same. Remember, seriously basic stupid questions, don't be embarrassed, you would be really shocked what I don't know about you.

how was your pregnancy?
Jun. 21st, 2004 02:09 pm (UTC)
Physically, it wasn't too bad. My midwife was concerned Laurel might be breech because she refused to stay head-down in the last two months, but I didn't have morning sickness and the heartburn I had in the later months went away after she was born.

It was difficult emotionally. Himself and I only saw each other for barely a week of the pregnancy because he was in basic training and tech school the entire time I was pregnant, so I only saw him for a few days around Christmas (before I knew for sure I was pregnant) and the day before she was born. My best friend (saarlander) was stationed nearby at the time and visited regularly, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

How were yours?

Um, where do I start? More than you ever wanted to know.
When I got pregnant, I had a flat belly that I never worked at.

After the fifth week, I felt nauseated almost 24 hours. When I got hungry, it was ravenous hurtful hunger like a hunger I'd never felt before.

The second month, I had the hormones pumping into my body and you could see the veins in my breasts and they were sore---24/7 sore.

As my first pregnancy progressed, I started to get pinched nerves---one in my butt especially. It's hard to maneuver with a big belly and pinched nerve. Yeah, my husband called me 'Quasimodo'.

I also got carpal tunnel when I was pregnant. I've never had it before or again but my hand would go completely numb in the middle of the night and I'd have to stand up to get (what felt like) the blood back into my hand. I lost all feeling in my right hand at the end of the pregnancy and six weeks after I gave birth.

With my second pregnancy, I broke out in a rash because of the hormones. It was 120 degrees here in Phoenix and I was 9 months pregnant covered in a painful rash.

You are told to sleep on your left side during pregnancy. You are told over and over that that is the best position for the baby. I would get so sore sleeping on just one side and not moving and I'd snore like mad when I laid on my back because of the weight of the baby.

Only 11 hours of labor with Chaz and 4 with Asia though.

This has nothing to do with anything, but the day Laurel was born was the day I saw Head for the first time.

Have you seen Head?

You've mentioned it before and no, I haven't. What are my odds of finding it at a Blockbuster?
Jun. 22nd, 2004 07:08 pm (UTC)
I think pretty good. It's out on Rhino, so it's got pretty good distribution. I know that the Hollywood Video, at least near PLU, had it. So I think Blockbuster probably would also. I think it'd be in the "Music Concert" or "music" section.

If I was lonely and wanted to go hang out with you for awhile, what ideas of something to do would most likely entice to come out and play?
Jun. 21st, 2004 03:56 pm (UTC)
That would entice me out of the house? After babysitting's covered, I'm a sucker for a good library, public archives, used bookstores, anything involving sufficient amounts of fabric or art supplies... and ice cream. I love, love, love ice cream, gelato, and frozen custard -- as long as it's creamy and neither sugar-free nor low-fat, I will try it at least once.

Do you ever regret not staying at Mary Baldwin?
Jun. 21st, 2004 09:03 pm (UTC)
I regret not sticking to finishing my undergrad work in one shot, but I don't regret leaving Baldwin.

I applied to several colleges and went with Mary Baldwin because they made the most generous aid offer. When I arrived for orientation week, I found out they'd confused me for over six months with another applicant with the same last name and the correct offer was barely a half-ride (way more than full in-state tuition at the University of Colorado). I sometimes wonder why I didn't leave right then, but the year I spent there was character-building... and I met great people like Aziz, Dr. Westhafer and all the PEG students the staff kept mistaking me for being.
