3lilchunklins Thanks Naz, I'll surely let ya know!
I'm really sorry your in such a situation. Remember that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him.
Apeydef- no doubt its gonna go fast!

apeydef Chunk I have 12 weeks left. I bet it will go by fast with the holidays. I don't enjoy pushing but it seems to bring a little momentary relief. I'm praying for a successful VBAC. Money has a lot to do with it too!

apeydef Naz I'm so sorry! Here I am complaining and you are going through all this. I don't know what happened with your DH or why you had to move but I'm sorry.
Today 02:46 PM
Nazsmum I did not enjoy pushing.

This place has a lot of problems!!! We are stuck here for at least 2yrs. I will make the best of it. But right now we have no place to where to wash cloths...we only got the lights on yesterday...and I could go on. It is just not a good place for lots of reasons.

AND DH is working crazy hours. Last night was the 1st time in weeks that we all ate dinner together as a family. My life is crazy right now. And it did not have to be this way. I could cry.

Chunk- I sent you something in the mail. Let me know when you get it.

3lilchunklins Hey everyone!
I'm glad you and your DH settled things, Apeydef.
Naz, I hear ya, getting unpacked and settled in is very time consuming to say the least. I'm sorry you don't like your new place, maybe just give it some time...
My DH is on his way home, he was on another men's retreat this weekend. Its been long without him here. We've been night weaning DS and DH usually initially gets him down for me, so obviously I was on my own the last few nights, but we did fine.
I'm overwhelmed with nesting, its craziness! I know it won't be long now, 8 and a half weeks left. Oh how I dread labor! Maybe pushing with be a relief, I hear some women enjoy pushing, Ive hated it in the past, but things could be different this time I suppose. I think I have SPD, I've never had it before but when I was searching my symptoms that's what I've come up with. It sucks!!
Today 12:49 PM
Nazsmum apeydef- Thanks for asking how I am. I'm really having a hard time. My DH's friend is coming to help set things up. I'm hoping that he comes on Wed. That will help alot.

Sorry I did respond before....things are crazy here

apeydef Hi Naz! How are you? Are you feeling better?

I'm much better DH and I talked he said he just is sick of arguing and wants me to be nicer to him. I think his job is a little to blame. He changed locations within his company ( which he does a lot) but things always get bad when he is somewhere he doesn't like. Maybe I am not always nice, but I get frustrated and sad. No excuse though I know, and I'm working and praying on it.
Anyway at least I know he doesn't want to leave which was my fear.
Trying to stay caught up on the house but I get so tired.
I end up laying in bed for two hours or so while DS is napping. I've been doing this pretty much since he's been born bc he has never been a good sleeper and I use nap time to catch up on sleep. Or just relax. He's finally sleeping at night and we have fully weaned in the last week, but now with pregnancy I still require the nap/rest lol.
Dd turns six tomorrow. Makes me sad. I feel like I never have patience with her and now she's just getting older and older and I hope I'm not wrecking her childhood. I know we've all talked about the struggles with our 5/6 yr olds. We have a fun day planned though. She got to pick where she wanted to have dinner and we invited grandparents and a few aunt and uncles that live close by. I'm making her a cake too. She picked Halloween erasers to bring to school bc they can't bring treats anymore due to all the food allergies kids have.
Anyway hope you are all doing ok. I love having you guys here to vent and to listen to you all too. God bless.

Nazsmum Just checking in.

apeydef- Thinking about you. Hope that you are doing OK. How are feeling?

Chunk- How are you feeling? How are feeling about the labor/birth? WOW the baby will be here soon!!!

Ultrafighter- Are doing anything for the holiday??

DH's friend is coming over to help unpack and stuff. DH is working sssoooo many hours that I can't get anything done. And this place needs a lot of work.

I'm watching that baby for the next couple of days. She is desperate and I'm a BIG sucker!!! Oh well!!!

Fall Holidays start this week. The fall speaks of the LAST DAYS. Jesus coming back. So I'm thinking about all the things going on.


Sorry for mistakes--- --- 5yr all over me
09-19-2014 02:55 PM
Nazsmum Oh NO!!! That is hard. Is it stress? Maybe new baby "fear"? Will he meet with the you & pastor? I'm praying for you.
09-19-2014 01:40 PM
apeydef I don't know ladies he said some stuff this morning that makes me think he doesn't want to be with me. He also has been picking fights with me.
09-19-2014 11:13 AM
Nazsmum Chunk- It is just not a good place for us. This all because of what DH did!!! And I'm just sick of it. If I was not a believer I would be gone.

apeydef- I agree with chunk about the smoke clearing after the baby is born.
09-19-2014 11:04 AM
3lilchunklins What wrong with your new place Naz?
And thank you for putting me on the prayer list!

Apeydef, sometimes I feel like that too. I truly know DH loves me but I feel like he doesn't often throughout pregnancy. I really think its a hormonal emotion thing. I know when your in the thick of it it all seems very real and valid, but once the smoke clears, its usually easy to see that my perception was off. KWIM?
09-19-2014 11:03 AM
Nazsmum apeydef- For me after having 2 it was like nothing to have 3. Yes, I had some hard days...but don't we all.

I don't want to even talk to my DH. I can't believe that we are in this situation. I just hoping that I can get back to a little normal life soon. This place is !!!
09-19-2014 09:44 AM
apeydef Thank you for the prayers too Naz. I am worried about being able to juggle a child in school a two year old and a newborn. I'm excited too though for our new addition.
09-19-2014 09:42 AM
apeydef I'm sorry Naz! I'm probably not much support as my husband and I are going through some stuff too. Im beginning to think it happens every time I'm pregnant but I don't know whats going on. I feel like he just hates me. It's such an awful feeling and I can't talk to anyone bc I don't want to dishonor him in anyway or make anyone mad at him bc I can't handle negative feedback.

Nazsmum Happy Friday

How happy is everyone who fears ADONAI,
who lives by his ways.

Nazsmum Well, we are mostly moved in. I am so depressed and don't know if I'm coming or going.

I'm doing to Focus on the Family-- Truth Project-- Bible study. It is not my cup of tea. BUT I'm getting around people. Something that I need.

Chunk- I'm going to put you on the pray list for healing.
09-16-2014 03:07 PM
Nazsmum New place stinks!!!! What did my DH get us into???
09-16-2014 01:22 PM
3lilchunklins Thanks Naz, I need all the prayers I can get!
How is everyone doing??
09-12-2014 04:29 AM
Nazsmum Happy Friday (my son wanted this)

Luke 9: 2 ... (Jesus)he sent them out to proclaim the Kingdom of God and heal.
09-10-2014 06:11 PM
Nazsmum chunk & apeydef - I'm praying for you gals as you are coming up the birth.
09-10-2014 03:07 PM
3lilchunklins Been really busy! Sorry I haven't been around much.
Glad your moving Naz and the new church is working out.
Glad to hear you DH is coming home soon ultrafighter!
Apeydef, glad u got to church! And I know it sucks when you have days where it feels like your just a screw up. But the longer you focus on the screw up the harder it is to get back on track. How's that verse go, Things that are praise worthy, noble, and pure, think about such things....?? Its in one of Pauls books, Philippians if I'm not mistaken... somebody must know the address!

As for me... still getting settled in. We finally started night weaning. DS is doing really good. Last night was night 4 and he slept till 7am!
DH initially gets him down for me, and then if he wakes up I get up and rock him back to sleep. Hopefully we'll have more nights like last night!
09-10-2014 01:45 PM
Nazsmum Ultrafighter- Glad to here that you are doing well. We are moving this weekend...not fun
09-10-2014 09:45 AM
ultrafighter We're also waiting on the details from our landlord about how much our rent is going up on 12/1 to decide if we need to move or not so I'm enjoying seeing you ladies get settled in your new places. It helps me feel better about my own situation.
09-10-2014 09:44 AM
ultrafighter My husband may be completely done with outpatient next Friday (and presumably begin working just part time after that) so then our normal will change yet again. Trying to remain calm and just trust. That is so dang hard sometimes.
09-09-2014 06:20 PM
apeydef Doing better thx! Getting big too
09-09-2014 10:12 AM
