The ants are mostly gone and the kitchen smells really nice!
I am really not feeling this season. I told my husband last night that I don't think I'm even going to keep watching. None of the women really stand out to me and Tyra...I don't know. I think I'm just over her.
Hi Mamas--My daughter has been attending this school since the fall and I'm just wondering if there are any others--I'd love to connect! Mindy
Hi, I'm not in your DDC but I saw your post on the front page and had to respond. I had PUPPS something awful the last month of my pregnancy and first month of my post partum--I thought I was going to go insane! Something that actually worked for me, and felt pretty good, was taking a shower twice a day with Pine Tar soap (I'd put it on a scrubby and turn off the water, cover my entire body with a thick foam and let it sit there as long as I could before I'd get too cold,...
My four year old,Gillian, is Piglet; my new baby Ben is Little Friend.

It could have been Minnie Mouse jumping out at her and she would have been frightened. Right--exactly! Of...
Yep, I'm feeling a little put off by this kind of thing right now as well. The door to the first house we went to last night was opened by a man in a scary mask screaming! My daughter is also rather fearless but she's still only 3 and a half--really young! She went to maybe 10 more houses but was clingy and afraid the entire time. I mean really, if you're going to open your door acting like a serial killer maybe look out your peephole first and assess the situation? She...
Yep--me too. Every night for a week and a half I've gone to sleep with my gut telling me "tonight's the night!" and every morning I wake up still pregnant! I feel like the boy who cried wolf and definitely have lost faith in listening to my body which is soooo disheartening! Mindy
I didn't want to read and not reply--I've had so much trouble finding other mamas to connect with in Olympia--and it's so weird because I've lived here FOREVER and love this town and really do have a lot of connections; I JUST.CAN'T.SEEM.TO.MAKE.A.PLAYGROUP.HAPPEN! I met up with a few mamas from here when I had my first daughter, about 4 years ago, but that never really took off. I kind of lurked on the board when I went back to work and would see some things kind of...
Thank you all again for all your supportive replies. I KNEW you all had to know the truth...I'm just so frustrated because I really do LIKE my doctor and really WANT to trust her but still, despite the fact that my hospital does have a very low c-section rate, I do need to be very aware of going into this ready to fight if necessary. The weight thing is irritating as well, I started at 190 (I'm 6 ft tall) and have gained 45 lbs--really a totally "acceptable" amount in...
