-- so feel you on the finances! I just decided to look at it like a blessing having DH home since he was basically laid off for asking to bond with new child! We are so angry about that still. We talked to a lawyer and at-will saves the bastard employer so we can do nothing.
Could you cut out some bills to keep from getting the repo? I've even heard of paying half your payment just to keep things current. I know I've paid late several times and it's never been an issue. What about having that crazy sister of yours help out?
We are going to be so broke soon. I just am numb about the whole thing.
About your DH being fantastic-- mine is too but I still want to murder him sometimes. Especially over getting the crazy 3yo to bed. I nurse her tho barely and that's really not working so great with a fussy 4weeker. How are you handling that? Please give me tips! We are so DONE at night that it's just chaos! DD1 ends up overtired waiting for me to get bebe settled so I can put her to sleep. DH tries to rock DD1 and half the time it doesn't work and I just take over anyhow. It's really not working. DD1 is so hard to put to sleep. I actually started a thread in the main parenting forum because I'm losing my mind.Serena
-- I hear you on BF in public. Oh I hate doing it! And it's so constant in the early days/weeks/months I really just rather stay home. I've done a few errunds with DD1 but have only driven with DD2 twice to go to the ped and out with her for walks. People say annoying things to me about how small she is so it's been painful. I don't go out long enough to have to nurse but to just get some much needed fresh air. Start with that then work your way up to going to the market then maybe even lunch. I didn't go out with DD1 for like 3 months so you shouldn't feel like you have to-- totally normal. Not good for any baby blues tho for sure.
And to all you overdue mamas omg I envy you but then again am SO happy to not be pregnant. I am doing so much better walking fussy baby around at 6am in a sling in my living room then the constant get-up-to-pee can't sleep or eat because of heartburn crap so I'm hoping you all deliver soon! I really am sad I didn't get a September Libra though! Anyone think Virgos are better? Convince me!
My due date is in 5 days. It's bittersweet. I still can't believe I'm not pregnant.Edited by tillymonster - 9/24/13 at 7:13am
