Uhg! So, our van started over heating on DH yesterday on his way home from work. Just all of the sudden. So our van is sitting in a church parking lot and we are trying to decide what to do now. It's our only vehicle. It has over 200,000 miles though, and several things that need fixing. Basically if we can get financing we're going to get something else. We can get something with a lot less mileage, and will run better for the same cost as a years worth or more of repairs on a van that is probably on it's last leg anyways. We're just sweating if we'll get financed. Between our credit and the economy...We're only looking to borrow 8 grand or so. Other than that I'm good. I bought some Yogi expecting mother tea, and it's helping with my mornings big time.

BlissfullyLoving-Gotta love the pregnancy dreams! Oh and on the uncomfortable level. My FIL used to love to come and try to stroke DS face with he was nursing. I wanted to scream "Get away weirdo!"

beachcomber-I'm sorry about the crazy bus ride.

This really sucks.
Did something else happen that they think you need to be on bedrest?

Good luck. I hope it is a quick and easy no matter what you need to do.

Just more blood... redder. She said that I may be trying to miscarry or it could be a subchorionic hemmorhage... She says I need to chill and not raise my pulse until we can figure out what's up.

So I'll go to bed and watch movies I guess. lol

I am going to try to pump, but if it gets too hard to manage I will be open to looking at other options. I think I have already picked out my pump though... I want the Lansinohl double electric pump. It really has great reviews and the price is so much better than the medela pumps.
Five years ago I could have said that word for word. As I continued to reach the milestones I had set for myself, 6w, 3m, 6m, a year!, 18m..., I realized just how thankful I was that I had stuck it out during the the hardest part (the first 6 months for me). I did supplement some after I returned to work when pumping was stressful, but by then my supply could take that hit.

I still nurse my 4 yo once a day. Back 5 years ago I would have thought that was crazy, but I am so thankful for bond nursing has helped us form. Being a working mom it has been espicially important to me. I imagine it's one of the best things I'll experience in life.

I'll shut up now, but I don't often miss a chance to share what a wonderful thing nursing has been for us or to support other nursing moms.

I am feeling terrible today. My 2 year old is being soooooo clingy and whiney and today of all days I feel like I just can't deal. I love my mom, who lives nearby, but she never just stops over. I could use the help but she always offers "you can come here"...PLEASE! If I could move I would certainly be doing more!!! I know-I am so grouchy.

My husband and I are disagreeing about his brother's upcoming wedding. Backstory: He and his girlfriend were guests at ours 5 years ago and were annoying/snippy that whole week for no good reason. Then they choose to have their wedding in almost the exact same place (kind of like stealing a baby name!). It is the same town destination wedding, literally behind the place we had ours. We would not pay the ridiculous per nite fee for their hotel so we chose another one close...and they wiggled that info. out of my hubby and PRINTED IT on their invitation as their "suggested hotel for less $". So now we will get inundated with relatives when I wanted peace. They also brought a huge box to the place we were staying and filled it with gag gifts and little things from Target...ok, not like I'm trying to be mean. They probably didn't have a lot of $ at the time WHICH I UNDERSTAND!!! But it was that coupled with the attitude and the fact that I once heard him laugh that he will not spend $ on a gift to be shipped, he'd rather be the only person to show up with a big box! ANyway, I told my husband considering our current finances and debt we will NOT be giving $100 cash, no way. Considering we have to stay for 2 nights, plus pay for his tux rental, etc., I think a small goft and nice card suffice. He is like "You cna't give less than $100. I'd rather not give at all then". WTF? I am still so bitter about them semi-ruining our time at our wedding and being babies, and we paid for everything!!! I even decided we would give them and my family an expense-free vacation in lieu of an engagement ring! Sorry-I digress. Just no way no how I am giving them cash. I don't even mind a gift certificate (I can charge that if I have to...). I know I am being petty, but I'm sure some of u girls can understand what it's like harboring a resentment.

Well, I am glad to get that bit****ng off my chest. The nausea is just killing me and I'm not looking forward to the tons of things I have going on this week BEFORE we even deal w/ the wedding junk. This whole weekend is eaten up. Obligations and appointments, today is my only day of rest. Hope you all are doing well!!! Thanks for letting me vent! Whew!

I guess this goes here, and it is what I call a Pregnancy Deep Dark Secret: I am using my pregnancy as an excuse to get out of a career that I don't believe in anymore. I have known it was not right for me for a very long time, I am so excited. Sometimes I feel slimey for feeling this, but then I get really thrilled that there is a Light at the end of this Very Long Tunnel of not being happy with my job. Yay pregnancy!

I did the samething, but I always knew I was going to be a sahm and stop working.

Can you believe this...to top off my day, my mother just called and told me that my sister (who is due two months to the day ahead of me) decided she likes a name that I was going to name this child if it is a girl!!!! The only name I had!!! I have had it picked for over three years and didn't mention it to anyone yet. My sister has mentioned about 4 other girl names so far in her pregnancy. This name is rather obscure so I never in a zillion years thought...and bang, ten minutes ago my mom tells me this. I just need to sleep. SO READY TO PACK IT IN TODAY!!!
P.S.
Thanx for the hug!!!

Man, what a crummy day. Can you talk to your sister? If she has numerous names in mind she might not be attached to your name.
post #52 of 74
could you gently suggest the other names, like, "What happened to Hortense? I thought you all were set on that one" or something along those lines...

This was totally me when I was pregnant with DS! We also decided during this time that we wanted me to SAH but yes.. I was so glad to get out of the field I was in!! Accounting is amazingly boring... who knew

Thanks for the good words on my crummy commute the other day, folks. Fortunately that was the low-light of my week. The rest of it's been pretty good, actually. I'm STARVING today and just can't stop eating. My belly's definitely showing a baby bump and today I'm officially 10 weeks. Definitely feeling good about things.

Midnightmommy - sorry to hear about the van troubles. I hope you find a better option soon.

Willowsmom - enjoy your weekend of movies and bed rest. Bummer you are stuck there. Hoping for a sticky bean for you.

pearl2 - I hear you on being happy to quit an unsatisfying job/career. It's a really good feeling, I'm sure!

Monk Monk - that's a real drag about your sister using your name. Let's hope she has a boy, eh?
post #55 of 74
willowsmom-Don't you dare move off that couch until told otherwise! At least a forced day off is better than a regular day off. You might actually rest a little.

Monk Monk- I'm sorry about your family drama. You still have plenty of time maybe your sister will change her mind, or you'll find another name that you like better. You never know. I don't have any advice on your brother. Those kind of family things drive me insane. My own brother is only sixteen, but I have IL. Honestly all you can do is smile be nice, and be flattered that they loved your wedding so much that they can't think of anything else. Don't worry about how much you give. It's the love behind a gift not the price tag.

pearl2-I had no intention of staying home permanently after DS was born, but here I am! Don't feel bad about running from a crappy job to stay home.

So we got financed, and even found a van we like online! Now we just need to get there somehow. I posted my questions about car buying on F&F. Hopefully I get it all figured out before this weekend so I can get an awesome deal.

Our son had his first parent teacher conference yesterday. It went really well. She said our son makes her laugh everyday. He's doing really well school wise, but his only speed is fast. Which is fine by her. She can redirect him. I'm so glad we put him in developmental kindergarten instead of going straight to kinder. He gets to go slower and have the basics down before it gets really tough.

I swear the last couple of days I've felt worse in the morning that I did a week ago! I'm about 8.5 weeks, so maybe that's normal. The dad of my daycare kid showed up yesterday morning and asked me to watch him early this morning. He's usually not here on Fridays until 2:30. I wasn't sure if we would be car shopping today though, and honestly mornings are tough. I'm also not a fan of one day notice when he's adding an extra four hours. So no extra kiddo at all today. He'll be here 38 hrs next week though.

Morning y'all.

I'm still bleeding a bit... I'll find out what's going on Monday when I do the test.

I'll be bummed if I find out I've miscarried...but I've pretty much made my peace with that possibility.

*shrugs*

I guess I'm sort of apathetic right now. Every time I see more blood I don't really feel anything... just an "Oh well."

I'm going to bake brownies today...
I'm resting the rest of the day, but I need some f*****g chocolate. lol

Love to you guys, much love.

Willowsmom: I hope you are able to relax and get some good news soon.

I am seven weeks today and have a prenatal visit with a nurse at my family doctor's clinic. I asked on the last chat thread whether or not to lie about the LMP; still haven't decided.

hi mamas nice to see many of you are doing well, and sending goodvibes to those who need them.

i'm on a nausea roller coaster, and my trigger is is talking about food i asked dh the other day to get me something to eat- soup, i think, and i gagged about five times before i could even get the whole sentence out. dh is quite amused by my wretching . i am hungry and feeling barfy at the same time; it's the strangest feeling. i can't complain too much, though, as dh is waiting on me a lot, and i can't remember the last time i made dinner : i'm also managing to get in 2-3 hour naps as long as dd cooperates. those times when i can get naps help be be more productive in regards to household chores like dishes and laundry. my belly is beginning to pooch out a little, but i'm thinking it's more due to constipation than anything else gotta love the way progesterone slows everything down, eh?
