Hey there!!<br><br>
I so miss partcipating here....Dh finally got our computer fixed (wonder IT guy he is..lol) and I was on yesterday for abotu 10 minutes before the computer decided IT had enough and shut ITSELF off.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
I've been without it for just under 2 weeks now and I hate not being able to check in here or my email (oooo, the full inbox of junk..lol)....I am on his laptop now which isn't friendly towards me (I must be one of the few out there that prefer desktops...lol)...<br><br>
Baby only moves when her sister comes up and chats/sings to it....but at least she's movin and I can feel her so that's what matters....<br><br>
My stepdaughter isn't treating her sister very well.....being super snotty to her and not very nice in general..doesn't want her to sit next to her, play with her, touch her, kiss her, talk to her.....and it's not making my stress level go down any...wish it were something easy like simple jealousy bc that can be worked on...neither Dh or I know what's up, just that we are over it....DD misses her terribly the 5 days she is gone (we get here 5 days, mom gets her 5 days) and her stepsister goes out of her way to avoid her and actaully slammed the door in her face this evening, missing her fingers by an inch or so....So, being the hormonal stressed out mess I am right now, I went straight to Dh and we went and chatted with her about family and such.....DD just sat crying the entire time so I took her off and we went and played on the patio.....wish I knew what to do......Oh well...<br><br>
Hopefully he can get the computer up and running again without any major purchases for it.....he was getting ready to rebuild soon anyways but wanted to wait until after we moved end of June.....all our money right now is tied up in moving......whoo hoo....LOL...Just need to find a place...<br><br>
I have my beads for the swap and will get them sent as soon as I can find the little baggies.....anyone tell me where they got theirs???? I thought about getting some glad press and seal and putting the beads in the middle of two pieces of that.....works the same I spose....LOL....<br><br>
Hope this finds everyone doing well, bellies growing, movin and groovin.......<br><br>
Gonna try to get on his laptop at least once a day to check in and chat a bit......I got an email from gooseysmom (she's near me) and she was in the hospital again for just over a week.....I wish the Hyperemesis would let up for her.....I still have some serious bouts of nausea but man oh man......she said she would try to get online soon too.....<br><br>
I *may* even be back with a belly pic.....hehehehe

Hopefully your computer issues work out.<br><br>
I havent got little baggies yet, but for my shower w/ dd I had everyone bring a blessing and we attached them to the beads w/ some jewelry wire and it worked great until I was able to string them all together.

Don't have any advice on dsd and dd...Have you posted about this in the blended/step family tribe (I think that is what it's called)? They could probably offer lots of advice, etc. All I have is a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I had a nice reply and lost it. Well, I hope things are settling down at your house. What is the age difference between the girls?

Thanks mamas..things have settled a bit but not much.....change is slow, I know but it's slower than a snails pace right now......I have been in her life since she was 2 years old (5.5 years now) and things were great and then they weren't and not getting better..it's just very stressful...<br><br>
The girls are 4ish years apart..not quite 4.5 but close....part of the issue is that at her mother's house, there are no "rukes" or "guidelines" of any kind..do as you please, eat what you please, you're a mini adult basically...Here, there are the normal guidelines you would expect for a 7 year old....be nice, treat others the way you want to be treated, spend some time with yoiur sister, don't slam doors in her face etc.....she misses you the 5 days you are gone and is super excited to see you, talks about you all the time and it's met with blank stares and glaring at both her father and I. I just feel bad for dd.....who loves her so much and tries her best.....only to get knocked down or pushed and come crying to me....I feel for her....<br><br>
She was mean as can be to her sister (dd) when she was brand new....pinching, rocking the cradle way way too hard even though we showed her how to do it, Dh let her hold dd once after a bit and she just got up from the sofa and almost dropped her like a rag doll and went off skipping... (luckily dh was right there) and she told him that she didn't feel like holding the baby anymore so she just left her on the sofa.....I know you can't expect a little one to understand but he explained to her and said when you are done, you need to tell me and I'll get her up for you..he was in the next chair...She said she didn't care....and still doesn't..She was just soooo mean mean mean to her when she was tiny that I am scared about behavior with the new one which just adds to the stress..I wasn't the only one to notice it and we had several friends and family members comment about it to each of us, together and separatly....<br><br>
I would post in the stepfamily area but I have a IRL friend who is a memeber here who is dealing with something similar and everytime she has posted about it, she's gotten flamed (you aren't the parent, you are the stepparent, leave all discipline to your husband etc......even though her stepchild was harming/putting her sibling in harms way etc......) for things she says in her post or reply or actions she has taken etc and hasn't posted there in quite some time bc of the unwelcomeness she's received..doesn't make me want to visit that section here....sigh...<br><br>
It will get better though, it has to......<br><br>
DD is more occupied right now with her baby sister (i put lotion on my belly every night and she does too bc her baby wants some too....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) and how things are changing with me and etc......that it was a pretty calm weekend...The baby responds to her voice when she talks right up against my belly and she thinks it's the coolest thing in the whole wide world....and is already talking about what things she will share and won't share with her when she comes, including old clothing.....so we'll see.....<br><br>
Dh has been more on the ball this weekend with dsd's behavior too so that's helped greatly so it's just not me talking to her.....He just needs to realize that more compromise is needed that what is going on now and it's coming slowly, very slowly but it's coming so....it's a start.....MEN!!!!!<br><br>
I've got my beads, just need to get out to get them mailed...I hope everyone likes them.....<br><br>
Still waiting on my our internet to be fixed..got the computer fixed and now our dsl is out...can't win....Luckily, mom's is working and we were here visiting here today after a LONG trip to the zoo (where I thought I was having some braxton hicks but 22wks is too early for that isn't it??? can't remember from 3 years ago) and I snuck upstairs to check email and in on here.....<br><br>
Hope this finds everyone well......growing bellies and all!!!!!!
