**The Chit Chat Thread**

post #1 of 85
Thread Starter 
Hey ladies!! I just wanted to start a thread for us to just chit-chat about the everyday goings on in our lives and any venting or thoughts that ya need to get out can go here!

I had my very first meeting with my midwife today and it was great. I feel soo comfortable with her and the birthing suite is gorgeous! So unless we have a house by the time this one comes I'll be giving birth there

I'm feeling sooo ill today. Very woozy and I have a very bad headache. Anyone else feeling this crummy?

I felt like hell this morning, and feeling pretty good now.

I also got two bits of rather annoying news. First of all, my dead beat sister in law will not be kicked out of her parents' house, which annoys me. This woman abandoned her daughter (saw her regulalry, but wouldn't raise her) to be a drug dealer, and then recently popped out another kid. She's 21 and a convicted felon, and my FIL and SMIL get to foot the bill.

Also, I run a small pagan church, and one of our members had randomly decided to hate me. I'm not sure why, and he would never say anything, wouldn't respond to emails, whatever. I honestly have no clue what his problem was. Well, he finally sent me an email saying he was leaving the grove, which at least settles the issue. But seriously, who the hell doesn't respond to multiple emails?!?!?!

Sounds like you had a crummy day Ashley s

I'm feeling a wee bit nauseated today and seem to be hungry no matter how much I eat lol.

Does anyone else give up caffine when they are pregnant? I did last time and I haven't even really started drinking it much since but I do love my tea! Don't know if I will give it up compleetly again this time, will any of you?

I"ve given up coffee. I actually did that anyways, since it was jsut making my anxiety worse. The thing is, I LOVE coffee, so it's been somewhat hard.

But no one better touch my tea

My in laws also irritate me. My sister in law has been in and out of jail for the past year or so, and she is only 20. My mother in law just perpetuates the problem by thinking everyone else but her should should take care of said sister in law.

Yeah who just doesn't respond to emails? Like he can't say that he didn't get multiple emails.

I gave up caffine with first pregnancy two years ago and never took it back up. I do drink coffee occaisionaly now, but i try to get decaf. I really do love coffee. I've never liked soda or anything though so that wasn't a problem.

I gave up caffine with my first ds and never went back, now if I forget to ask for decaf or someone gets me a coffee, I feel like I'm on crack. I get all jittery and have a headache. I can't barely function.

I've been trying to give up caffeine for 6 months, so this is just my excuse!

I've felt pretty great!! I don't feel pregnant, except that I do. I know that makes NO sense!!

I've also noticed.....sorry if it's TMI....an "odor" change 'down there'.....it doesn't smell worse or better, just different enough that I notice when I use the restroom or change clothes. Not bad, just different. Was wondering if it's just me, or if that's a preggo thing.

Anyone else convinced they're having twins???

Ashley...sorry about that guy. Some people are just like that.
post #10 of 85
Tashauna; I know what you mean. I smell different too.

As for the twins, let me put it this way...have you read my "Outgrowing clothes" thread? I thought maternity clothes were supposed to not fit when you're less than 6 weeks pregnant!

And I've had a rather good day. Some annoyances, but also a bunch of friends came over tonight and we had a potluck. Plus, I feel great, and very pregnant.
post #11 of 85
Tshauna I remeber noticing a smell chainge early in my last pregnancy. I don't think I'm having twins but I'm convinced I would freak out and die if I did

Great thread idea! I'm feeling yicky these days, too.

I gave up caffiene with my first, and thinking I'd be more relaxed this time around, I didn't try to give it up, but my body does not want it at all. So it's gone, and all the caffiene I was drinking was one cup of green tea a day. I'm a lightweight.

Today I was sitting at a red light, in my exhaustion haze, watching a woman in heels running nearly two blocks to catch the Max train. I thought there was no way she was going to make it - she was approaching from an angle where the driver couldn't have seen her to wait, and her timing was all off. But! She made it! I started to tear up. Seriously! Full on emotion. Hello hormones!

for having to deal with law breaking in laws.

*sigh* So I've been up now since 4am, unable to sleep. My dh is on call 24/7. Doctor, no... firefighter, no.... he's responsible for a web hosting company so the four calls that came in last night were not to save someone's life but were because their bloomin' web pages were down. The last one at 4am woke me up completely. :

At least my kids are both in school still and I might be able to sneak a nap later.

I've more or less been off the caffeine for a while now. I'm allowing myself the occasional Boyles soda or chai. I tried to get into coffee because I thought I ought to be the coffee sort but never quite made it to the land of coffee love so giving it up really wasn't a big problems. Mostly I enjoyed the smells associated with it and I can have those still.

Tashauna- I totally noticed a difference down there about a day after I took my first +test. I notice it, but DH doesn't so I guess we're fine.

So I just started the FlyLady system and I think I'm doing pretty well. I'm giving myself some leeway because I get soo tired sooo quickly. So I've been trying to maintain what I've started (i.e. keeping the kitchen clean and the bathroom) and then adding something little each day. Hopefully I can do it!

Is everybody getting their DRA (Daily Recommended Amount) of water each day? I need to figure out how to get myself to do that. If anyone has any suggestions I'm more than open for them

I love FlyLady!! I found her about 6 weeks after DD#2 was born. I've had some difficulty keeping up over the past year, but our house definitely looks better than it did a year ago, I've already done a ton of packing for our move (we still have 6 weeks here), and I'm totally more relaxed about what doesn't get done. I wish I'd found FlyLady sooner!!

I gave up caffine totally with my last pregnancy. I am not sure about this one - a cup of tea is part of my morning and naptime routine.

I am doing really poorly with water consumption. I had to give urine the other day and it was SO dark. So I have been trying to replace my tea drinking with a cup of water but it just isn't the same.

Oh, Ashley - I hear you about the SIL thing. My brother has done the same thing to my parents. He basically just dumped his 2 kids off with my parents. *Maybe* once every two weeks or so they spend a night at "home". It makes me so mad for many reasons but the biggest reason is it has basically taken away MY son's grandparents.
