Mrs. Music. I'm an A and have not changed at all! Bummer. I always like my breastfeeding boobs - not huge, but I think nicely proportional to my body...and I never get to keep them. I breastfed both my kids to 2 yo but the nice boobs magically went away around 12 months.

since were talking about tatas...

I still feel engorged! I'm 18 weeks and still so sore and firm to the touch. Just down right uncomfortable. I'm popping out of my D cup, and when I take my bra off the pain is really bad for a minute once they're free. Maybe I should retire my prepregnancy bras. Buy a double D or something? No one comments on my baby bump, just how chesty I am. It sucks!

I went to a baby shower last Saturday and was excited to be showing. Everyone said, oh you don't even look pregnant. Great, I still just look fat!

I have gone from barely an A to a full C. I am loving the new maternity bras I got. It is just so much more comfortable. My belly is BIG. Dh commented that I was not this big at 7 months with our first. I am big, I am getting tired of everyone telling me so, and I am slightly scared if I am this big at 4 months... Seriously, I am feeling uncomfortable already. I can't bend over at the middle. Sigh, this is normal when it's #6 right?

My chest seems to expanding, weirdly.

By the afternoon I feel like my bra is cutting into my skin, I actually unhooked it at work Friday!!!!! Just to breathe.

I was a 36 D, could squeeze into a C, and I just bought a 40 D and almost wonder if it is too tight.

I think I just need to vent. It seems all my friends are away or busy for the holiday weekend and I have no one to talk to about this...

Hubby talked about his work "schedule" and it's got me down so bad. He's already been gone for 3 weeks and we pick him up from the airport next week. That was going to be it, but then a week or so ago he added in that he's only going to be home for five days to a week and then leave until late October.


So today he says he's going to be home for Halloween and my birthday (Nov 1st) and then leave shortly thereafter until he takes a break for the holidays.
(I'm guessing this will be the BIG two weeks of x-mas and New Year)
Then he plans on trying to finish off before the baby... or leaving right after ??? I don't know I think I was hardly able to listen too well at that point in time... my mind is reeling about how to find help... a postpartum doula to help with the girls, or a mother's helper or... what on earth do I do!?

I know I'm a little extra freaked out at this moment and nothing is making good sense. I can't believe he would not take the last few weeks before my edd off and the next couple of months if it were possible. As far as him booking a flight the second I have any signs of labor is insane as I've never labored even 2.5 hours with either child, I'm not even sure you could get from airport to airport in that time. I know these are all ridiculous thoughts and I need to pull myself back into the present.

We just always planned that if hubby got great work opportunities like this one that we would be travelling as a family...

I think I need to go do something productive now before I lose it.

sorry about the pity party, but thanks for letting me get this out.

Hugs to you mama! My DH had a job that took him on the road several years ago. It sucked and I wasn't pregnant. I can't imagine what you must be feeling. I think looking into some help would be a great idea. If you set it up then it is one last thing for you to have to think about.

Echo- Im so sorry you have to deal with that. Its so hard when your husband has to travel so much. My hubby left when DD2 was 2 months old and right before DD1's second birthday (hes actually only made it to one birthday for the girls, hes been gone the rest) and it was hard, if you can afford it I would suggest a housecleaning to come in once a week and help around the house. I found taking care of DD1 wasn't the problem, keeping the house clean was. I wish I could have afforded a housecleaner at the time.

thanks for the hugs and ears Oki, upnorth, and Cami. I've calmed down oodles. I spoke with my MIL (WAY more of a mother to me than my mother) and she said that if that was the case she would do what she could to come down and stay with me if/when I needed it. Even if she doesn't having heard that calmed me down SO SO SO much. And also now that it's less than a week before I get to see hubby for a little while at least is helping for sure!
