Onions Anyone?

Guess what I learned I may have at my OB appointment this past Thursday?


Definition: for the compulsive desire to shop, more commonly referred to as shopping addiction or shopaholism.

I though it had to do with an obsessive need to eat onions. Which a certain brother-in-law of mine suffers from (you know who you are!).

And though I greatly like to shop, I usually don't purchase anything. What's the term for that? Noncommittoniomaia? Windowshoppyicism? CompulsoI'mjustlooking?

While waiting for my appointment to start my always entertaining husband picked up a Taber's Medical Dictionary and started quizzing me on medical terminology just for fun. Cause what else are you going to do while waiting for your appointment to start. Read a pamphlet about peri-menopausal symptoms or painful urination?

Anyways, we got to see our new little peanut wiggling around on the ultrasound screen, bringing bright smiles to our faces. I learned I need my blood drawn again, bringing a sad scowl to my face.



  1. Yeah, definately sounds like a certain brother more than you...but with our obsessive need to shop, I was just thinking this morning about another ikea trip. Hmmmm...

  2. I never knew this. What fun! Thanks for sharing!

  3. good info to have...and did you notice any peri-menopausal symptoms??? :) Glad my new little nephew/niece is busy moving and growing!

  4. How funny! So glad you got some good pictures of your sweet peanut

  5. Call me crazy, but learning medical terminology "just for fun" sounds kind of fun =)


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
