Gumshoe: So, so sorry about Gus. That kind of loss is wrenching enough, but to have it happen so suddenly--terrible. Big hugs.
Queer & Pregnant: February & March - Page 2
Thank you everyone for your thoughts and virtual hugs. Gus was more than a fur-baby. He was *totally* my kid. DW and I had been a couple for a year, and we got Gus two weeks before we moved in together. It would have been 7 years this month. He has been an integral part of our relationship and couple story. I miss him horribly. Today is better than yesterday and I'm crying a lot less (I'm sure that the pregnancy hormones are not assisting me at all in this area). Tonight will be hard because DW had to go out of town for work and Gus is who I snuggled with in her absence. DW put one of his stuffed animals in our bed for me. I'm not working today, but just getting stuff done around the house, mostly in the nursery.
Gumshoe- I can't imagine, I feel the same way about our dog- she is like our child. ::hugs::
AFM- heading to the hospital in a few hours! I am a mix of excitement for meeting the baby and a little bit of nervousness at the process but trying to just focus on the excitement that we will be holding our baby sometime in the very near future. Thank you all for the support of this community over the past year, you all rock and it is so exciting to be sharing the big day with other queer mamas & TTCers! Yup, I am mushy today!
Coco~ That pic of the twins is just adorable!!! Such cuties!!
I'm going to revisit a previous QOTD about the ickiest, most embarrassing things about being pregnant and say that it's the fact that I've sprouted a dozen moles and weird dark skin tags. There's even one on my areola! Yuck!! Is anyone else having this problem?
i saw this QOTD over in QTTC and am going to ask you all here: where/how did you come up with your username/handle? mine is part of my name.
coco, i just saw the video you posted on FB of the twins!!! my DP and i are gushing over here!! i love love love how they are just all up in each others business... it's really something special that they have each other and have been so close to each other for so long already! friends for life!
Happy birthing day, Burg!!! You're going to get to meet your daughter soon! I hope everything goes as you have imagined.
QOTD: On moles and skin tags. Hrrrmmm...I didn't know those were pregnancy symptoms. I guess something is going my way as I'm missing out on those . Well, I don't have any skin tags to report. I did have lots of moles/freckles prior to pregnancy on my chest and arms primarily, so if there are any new marks to report, I wouldn't be able to tell you. My belly button is still an innie, and I'm not sure it's going to pop. I don't have that line on my belly. So far, no new stretch marks either.
I am, however, one of those people who has eczema that gets exacerbated by pregnancy. A little patch on my finger has now exploded to cover three fingers. It's really annoying because it's itchy and does crack. It's like having really dry skin and I now hate to wash my hands or get them wet. Not so helpful when you now pee as much we do.
But the grossest thing, in my opinion, is pregnancy discharge. Enough said on that one.
