Why is it that at the time in my pregnancy I am feeling the most need for quiet and solitude that everything bad happens? My poor dh had the flu earlier this week and while I'm thankful no one else became ill, it made for a few longgg days. Then, my cat goes into the vet and is quite ill, so he has to stay a few days ($500+ that I don't have). Of course, baby drops and I start getting horrid lower back pain (and my chiro is closed fri-sun) and lose a lot of sleep due to the back aches and minor cramping. Today my dh goes to pick up kitty, people are arriving for Thanksgiving dinner, and I get the phone call- kitty is not going to be with us much longer. They put him to sleep this afternoon. So, when poor dh finally gets home there are a bunch of people here and we cannot mourn properly. Everyone leaves a while later (thank you!) and we sit down to tell our boys. It was horrid. So, now I'm going to go to bed and be very thankful that today is Saturday and tomorrow is the beginning of a new week.

Thanks for letting me vent.

I'm so sorry your cat died. That so sucks.
Is your dh feeling better or starting to?
Things will get better for you they usually do. I've been going through the same rainy crap lately and finally the clouds are starting to clear. Maybe we just need to get it over with before the baby comes instead of after.

I'm so sorry about your Cat!!!!!!!! :'(
I don't know what I'd do if I lost my cat at this stage in the game.
I hope that things pick up soon and you can get to your chiro!

Oh, poor kitty. I have been there, it is so so hard. I can't imagine having to tell my kids that. I'm so sorry you had such a horrible week to your family

I'm sorry about your cat. It's so hard to lose a family member around the holidays.

I'm glad your dh is better & the germies kept to themselves! I hope it stays that way & the rest of your pg goes smoothly.
