19 weeks and the flu shot conspiracy

It has been a busy week. Josh is back in the full swing of classes and is busy with life. I have been swamped at school and just generally growing a baby. The baby has been really moving and kicking. Good strong kicks. I am hoping Josh will be able to feel it soon. I really can't wait for him to feel connected in that way. I have been feeling okay. No more throwing up, praise God, but still generally nauseous. I think I am coming down with another cold, which is frustrating because I really don't have time for that. I actually have a flu shot theory. I have never gotten a flu shot before because I don't really believe that they work. I have been teaching and working with kids for four years now without a flu shot and have never gotten sick, not once. When I got pregnant in the fall I thought, okay, everything I am reading says I should do this, so for the sake of my unborn child I got the flu shot. Well...I have been sick twice now. It brings to mind a Simpsons episode that linked the flu shot to a government conspiracy that gave people a desire to spend money and boost the economy. I think they might have been on to something.

Side note: 1 more week until we know if we have an Emma or a Rowan!

Hi Guys,

I've been reading for a while; but haven't posted. Shey--I love your writing! I'm so impressed you hold onto your sense of humor through all the sickness.

I'm so excited for you guys, and for me, to experience this along with you guys.

Josh, I remember the first time I felt Brady move--incredible. Can't wait for you to experience that!
