I love ice cream

Did you know that a 16oz jar of Hot Fudge and a can of whipped cream are the perfect amount of each for a 1/2 gallon of ice cream?  Don't worry, I didn't eat it all at once... although I could, for the right prize. :o)  Dare me? 
I just decided to have some ice cream while I wait for my benedryl to kick in so I can back is KILLING me!  I actually had horrible pain in my rib earlier too...thought I was going to be on my way to the hospital and then it stopped.  Strange.  I've heard of people having rib pain with polyhydramnios (AKA, tons of fluid) but that was something else.  I really hope that doesn't become a daily thing.
Anyway, back to the ice cream... I got out all the ingredients for my favorite night time snack and realized there was only a little of each left..."oh well, I just use the container so I don't dirty a dish"... I poured  the rest of the hot fudge into the container and the last of the whipped cream and there you have it...a perfect hot fudge sunday...(minus the nuts, unfortunately, but Sam's allergic so we have a nut free zone here...what I give up for my children :o))  The best part??  No dishes and nothing to put away!  Love it.   It's not helping with my pain, but it's giving me something else to think about in the meantime.  I love ice cream.  And I think ice cream loves me.  And I am positive that Rachel loves ice cream too...she's jumping for joy right now - hopefully she'll stop when the benedyl starts working!  It's a tricky thing eating a sunday with benedyl while carrying a baby who loves ice cream and isn't phased by benedryl... Don't try this at home! :o) I'll let you know how it goes.... good night

SAT. MORNING UPDATE:  Last night went great...fell right to sleep, Rachel calmed down and snuggled in for the night and I slept well.  Woke up in pain, but hey, I can handle that.  I LOVE ICE CREAM!!  :o)


  1. The love of ice cream is in her genes.
    Hope your pain is better. Do you want the recliner? Keith is home and we could bring it down tomorrow.

    Love, Mom

  2. You're outlook and positive attitude amaze and inspire me. I pray for you and your family.

  3. Dear Stacy, I follow your blog daily. I'm happy to see someone also posted about baby Faith Hope (on the comments session of your August post "life out of death")
    I've kept praying for your family and for God to be merciful and allow you all to spend many many days with Rachel in your arms. It is not for us to decide, but God will do according to His will. We know he has the power to cure her, so we have to trust Him that He will do what is BEST for us all, even if at the time it doesn't sound like the best thing at all. God loves you, and I trust He will be merciful :-)

  4. I had chocolate ice cream with coconut and mini chocolate chips on top every night during the last months of pregnancy. Haven't touched it since.

    It's amazing to me that 3 weeks later I have forgotten the uncomfortable part of pregnancy and miss it all like crazy. The midnight kicks to let me know I was squishing him if I rolled the wrong way, the every other hour reminders to eat...hmmm.

    So exciting about the newspaper article! I cried and cried when I read all that. Amazing the impact our sweet babies have during their limited time on earth. What a great surprise :-)


We so appreciate your words of encouragement!
Thank you! ♥ The Aubes
