Deja Vu -- not again!?!

Being pregnant is an interesting ride. A couple weeks ago, Sam and I were siting in church when I started to feel a little dizzy. I told Sam, but we thought we would just wait until the sacrament was over before getting up to go lay down. Bad idea. Right after the bread was passed, I passed out! Poor Sam had to try to figure out what to do and try to hold me up while I slid off the chair. Sam and another brother carried me upstairs to a bed. Church is held in a house and our congregation is not large, so pretty much everyone saw the pregnant woman get carried out of sacrament meeting. After I came to, we went to a doctor and everything was fine. Probably just a momentary fit of low blood pressure or something.
However, last Sunday, during the sacrament (of course, when else?!), I started to feel dizzy again! I was so mad despite the wooziness because it was exactly like last time! I could not believe it was happening again at exactly the same time and exactly the same place! This time we decided not to wait for me to pass out, but to try to get up stairs first. However, standing up wasn't a good idea either, I just fainted walking instead of sitting. Once again, everyone watched while the pregnant lady was carried out of sacrament meeting and up the stairs! At least this time we got both the bread and the water first...

Oh, the joys of pregnancy :) My sister was at the end of hers, and she just got in the check-out line at Wal-Mart when she passed out. Her hubby wouldn't let her leave the house by herself after that.

Oh Amy! At least you're so cute and little---easy to carry!

Oh Dear! How interesting that you keep passing out during sacrament meeting. Maybe they should change the time so the "pregnant lady" doesn't pass out each Sunday. Although, I guess you keep things interesting each week.

Our church is at 10 am and our commute is walking down the stairs (we sleep at the church Saturday night because we live so far away) so I don't know that the time is a problem. But seriously! How embarassing!
