Kyamo, I had NO clue you could get paid for playing a video game (it is a computer/video game, right?). Wow!!! I am venturing to GenCon in Indianapolis for this first time this year and I hear they play video games there, too...will have to see if there is someone amazing playing there. Maybe not, since I don't think too many "pros" go; just game-lovers.
Harmony, I'd like to think your current situation is not your permanent situation, too. It might take a while, especially while the kids are little, but I bet you'll get to move or do some of the things you want to in time. *hugs*
3surfboys - I am a social worker, too! What kind of social work do you do? I am in geriatrics/health care. Was in hospice, but got a better offer from a home care agency, which paid me more to work less, so I went for it.
Those on meds - SSRIs are class C in pregnancy. I took 20 mg fluoxetine last pregnancy and had NO troubles for me or DS. Since I took it for anxiety, I have a different med this pregnancy, which is class B (safer than class C); maybe you can work with your doc on finding something class B that would help you? Or at least feel somewhat even on an SSRI?
Thanks, bcblondie for starting this thread!
My three things:
1. This is my second pregnancy and I HATE waiting the billion weeks until you can "announce" to everyone. My closest family know now, but I want to scream it to the world. On the other hand, the anxiety of something going wrong is killing me, too!
2. I am a knitter, too.
3. I work four days per week and I am already starting to get really tired and I WISH I DIDN'T have to work!
