who's hosting for Thanksgiving? Plans for the weekend? How's pregnancy going?

 

Having a great day today, minimal fatigue almost no nausea. Made it to the park for a few minutes after getting DS off the bus and and now I'm actually working on dinner- poor DH has been doing almost everything food related for weeks!

 

My parents are hosting for Thanksgiving but I need to get to the grocery for the stuff I'm supposed to bring. DH is working on the kitchen and needs to get it insulated this weekend, it's getting cold around here (Ohio)!

We are going to my inlaws, and aren't telling them...somehow...but I am so sick that I am practically allergic to my kitchen and my poor children are going to have to live on frozen pizza and tater tots for the next few weeks. To make it more complicated I have pretty serious dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy) and the whole family there is seriously conventional, so I am sick, and ravenous, and have to bring all my 'special' food which makes me feel really self conscious.
My mil usually makes some insanely insensitive comment about my pregnancies ( there have been 8 with my husband but she only knows about 3, or 5 if you count my living babes) I'm so not wanting to hear another thoughtless thing fall out of her mouth. The last time I miscarried (that she knew about) she told me I should stop trying so I don't have a retarded baby. I think my mouth actually fell open.
I'm ashamed to admit it but I am hoping one of my kids gets sick so I can just stay home an not pretend to feel normal all weekend. Is anyone else dreading a trip to the inlaws?

I think I need a glass for all this whine.

Going to my sister's house with the rest of my local siblings (there are four of us locally). I'm giving myself permission to not worry about what I eat for the day, so hopefully that'll keep the nausea at bay, so I don't give anything away.

I joined a yard sale group on facebook, and someone was getting rid of her maternity cloths. Half of them still have tags on them! The rest looks like new. I'm very proud of myself lol

That's amazing!!!!  I love the thrill of getting a good deal!

 

I have a friend who always gets pregnant just after I have my babies and so we've pooled our maternity clothes and they get passed back and forth!  I've doubled my wardrobe for free!!

I have my viability ultrasound Tuesday afternoon. Super glad to be able to do that. I'm going to the Pregnancy Support place for it. I had my intake appointment today. It only took 20 minutes. 
I haven't been able to accept this pregnancy because I can't be sure that the baby is even alive in there. Most likely everything is fine, but yeah. It'll be nice to know for sure.

Yay! I'm glad you were able to get in!
