You guys are so great! Someone forwarded me another message board focusing on kitchen renovations and there was a whole thread about the show and how AWFUL I was and how terrible it was of me to pass the baby off to my husband (everyone said he should have been in a crib and why was I carrying him around!), how awful our fights were (even though our fight was only ten minutes out of 200 hours of film and even then they were filming us secretly from other rooms!) and, as you can imagine, everyone mentioned the placenta and how gross that was.
I could type for hours telling you how we were so misrepresented through editing in the show, but because all of of you were so nice I won't bother. We got 90% of all of that stuff for free so if we ever had to do it again, we would do it in a heartbeat. My only regret is that I wore white pants two weeks postpartum. Nothing in my closet fit and we were so broke after buying the new house I had only $20.00 to spend at Marshall's and those were the only pants in the store I could get over my tushie.
