Could it be?

Yup I made it to 32 weeks. It feels great to say that I am EIGHT months pregnant. I think you can get away with a lot more if people know you are in your eighth month. We'll see I guess. I have been feeling really good all things considered. I still throw up a few times a week, but I am just used to it by now. I have been very surprised at how my back has held up. (knock on wood). For those of you that don't know, I have had the pleasure of experiencing 2 back surgeries. The latest was done about 2 years ago and I had to have two vertebrae fused. I was really concerned about getting pregnant because I didn't know how much pain I was going to go through. Well either I have been really lucky or my doctor did his job right because back pain has been among the lowest of my pregnancy complaints! I know I still have 8 weeks, but I am trying to stay positive. One thing that I can't get enough of is:
Give it to me mashed, baked, in a salad or soup and I will be one happy girl! I liked potatoes before I got pregnant, but I have to say it is one of the things I crave a lot lately. I made Brian take me to Paradise Cafe last night because I ate there a couple of days ago and they had this AMAZING Potato Soup. I was so disappointed because they weren't selling it last night! I guess I just need to get a recipe so that I can satisfy this little craving. Funny story about my love for potatoes while I am on the subject... We were eating dinner at my parents' house a few months back and they had mashed potatoes and gravy. Well I was in heaven obviously and had about 3 servings during dinner. Well after everyone was done eating there was still one very large serving of potatoes left. I decided to go against all reason and engulfed the last of the potatoes. Well I guess it was too much for my belly to handle because shortly after I was in the bathroom experiencing potatoes like I never wanted to experience. I will just say they have an interesting texture coming back up... Well you would think that after that, my love for potatoes would at least dwindle to a "like". Nope, I still crave them more than ever! Well only 2 more months of this crazy ride.

YEA!!! You are sooo close! This last couple of weeks is going to fly by, trust me. My thing was ice with baby #2...couldn't get enough (I think they call that...anemia). Anyway, things do taste differently coming up, don't they!
We're all here for you Kellie!
