post #161 of 355
Oh, Shabbers. I'm so sorry! Everything came together at once. Take care of yourself and lean on the "real" people in your life, too. I'm thinking about you.

Good morning Tear


afm, I temped this morning, but it was an hour late. I don't even know why I am doing it anymore. I am very upset right now about stuff relating to DF's friends and our wedding. I am near tears

Ohhh, Beloved! What's wrong? Weddings are so so stressful. Tell us more if you feel comfortable! What's the countdown?

Next Saturday. I have a thread about it in TAO (I'll return with a link)

BTW, I feel so stupid for having posted that, I feel DUMB
post #166 of 355
Beloved, you are NOT dumb for getting stressed out about this. Marriage is a big commitment, which you have not taken lightly. These friends were showing incredible insensitivity. If they sincerely have a problem with the marriage, they need to talk with you and DF soberly and caringly. My suspicion is that they were simply taking advantage of your vulnerability and the blessing you and DF have together, so that they could vent about their own negative experiences. Poor them, I suppose, but it shows no reflection on your own relationship, which you know best. We encountered a similar drunken sentiment from complete strangers on the night before our wedding. I took it as the kind of thing to shrug off as their loss, since I knew I had such a wonderful thing with my now hubby. Hopefully your DF will feel comfortable to talk to them about this behavior before the wedding, but if they really do make *sses of themselves next week, then try to shrug it off, again, as their own jealousy of what you have. I'm so sorry that you have to encounter this. Many people see weddings as an opportunity to impose themselves and their opinions uninvited on others. It's a ridiculous part of our culture, IMHO. I hope your walk helps. :

ps - everybody did wacky, silly, crazy things when they were younger, myself and your DF included. We all learn and grow up to do totally different silly things. I wouldn't judge your DF based on what he was as a younger person...judge him based on who he is now.

Thanks Tear

Ok, I wasn't going to b*tch, but I've exceeded my capacity to handle it emotionally. I'm sitting here at a huge arts festival helping DH exhibit his work, and the festival has 150,000 attendees, give or take. Do you know how many babies that is? And it's beautiful weather, so all the mommies are exhibiting their good luck and googling and goggling about their babies. Meanwhile my heart is breaking and wrenching inside me. I'm in my TWW and all I can think is how close I am to the next huge heartbreaking disappointment, and I'm already weepy about it. : Here comes the next baby.

Tear I'm sorry about that That must be so painful. Try to enjoy the beautiful day (I know those feelings are sometimes hard to shake though)

afm, I am feeling better, and silly to have gotten so upset. Talked to DF, and he is on the same page as me.

Beloved: weddings can bring out the worst in people! I remember how stressful it was at ours. Don't feel dumb about your feelings! It's better to get them out

Tear: I'm sorry I'm reading a book that says to think positive every month in the TWW. That sounds hard!! But it said to meditate about conception happening down to every detail. Then at the end say "I am pregnant. I want this baby" I've been doing that. But its hard, because every one of my friends (except two) is either big pregnant, or has a newborn. EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. *sigh*

AFM: I think I MUST be pregnant because yesterday I craved a Big Mac and actually ATE it. That is what I lived on with dd. We don't eat meat or fast food anymore, but I still ate one!! so that means I'm pregnant.

Shabbers: I'm so sorry!

Beloved:

Tear:

and a general all around -- it sounds like we all need it!

AFM: 13-14 dpo (normal LP is 12 days); got a bfn yesterday afternoon. Will use up my last test (of 15 since starting to TTC! How can I have gone through 15 tests and no BFPs?!) tomorrow morning. I'm just so used to this process now; I expect AF to show up or to get another BFN in the morning and be stuck in this waiting game again. Urg. Why is my LP like clockwork except when I'm TTC? : I've felt crampy on and off for a few days(although I only really feel it if I'm checking to see if I feel crampy) and my cervix feels REALLY low. However, I typically only do cervical checks around O, so I don't know if it normally gets lower before AF?

OK, someone tell me again that a line is a line.

Tested this morning and got a bfn. Went to Target to get more tests and a few other things and somehow spent $69 (don't worry -- only $10 was pg tests!). Tested again when I got home and got this:

(blurry picture, messed with the contrast to get the line to show up better)

A line is a line... on pink dye tests.

Blue ones lie too much, find a pink one!

I'll have to wait till DH gets home so I can use his fancy new camera (I'm afraid I'll break it ). Or, if I can stand it, wait and take another test tomorrow morning with FMU.

Is that really true about blue lines being less accurate than pink lines? How did I not know this?

A LOT of women get false positives with blue tests... I avoid them like the plague

Hi ladies... sorry to be so MIA.

Shabbers - I'm very, very sorry.

Jill - It was quite blurry... but I did see a line. I hope its true, true, true!

to everyone else, I just don't have the time to post long today.

AFM - CD2 today. Expected and okay with that. My grandma (the one who fell last month) took a turn for the worse over the weekend, ended up in ICU and on comfort care yesterday. She passed away last night. Its been a rough weekend. She was 91, and did have a really full and wonderful life. She never would have been happy stuck in a nursing home in a wheelchair, so in some ways, its for the best - but still hard for the rest of us.

I'll be back Friday most likely. to all.

Lisko, so sorry to hear about your grandma! My prayers are with you and your family.

AFM - another faint line this morning and no AF. I'm cautiously optimistic. DH was surprised that I'm not more excited. I told him it's more of a curve; I'll get more excited as the days/weeks tick by and everything is fine. Apparently he has only two settings: excited and not excited .
