<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> MIL just asked me "have you heard of the Diaper Genie"? <i>Uh, I'm on my 3rd kid, you think I haven't heard of the Diaper Genie?</i> I said, "eh."

"Yeah, but you don't have to smell the diapers." <i>Oh, you think my house smells.</i> This is the woman who is always offering to wash the cloth diapers as soon as she gets in the door. <i>I don't care.

We are house hunting right now and my mother doesn't seem to realize that we don't make as much money as they do. She keeps sending me listings so far out of my price range that our mortgage would be more than 2 of dh's paychecks. I told her the range we were looking in, and she says "but those houses are so much nicer than what you are looking at." Ok. Do you want to buy one for me? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead">

I think that mine is when people don't answer their cell phones. A lot of times my friends and family, leave them in the car, are too lazy to get up and get it, or leave it turned off forever. What is the point of having it if you are not going to use/answer it?? My dh has not checked his inbox in so long that it is full and you cannot leave a message. I cut my hand last night and had to go to the ER... I thought that I was going to pass out on the way there and NOBODY answered their phones. I had to drive to my parents house and have them take me from there. My dh heard all about it later when he saw me on the missed calls 7 times!!!! My BFF said "oops, I was watching t.v. and didn't want to interupt it."

That sucks pumpkin, you wear what you want we're all beautiful. Besides, most people are too busy worrying about how they look to really notice anyone else!<br><br>
I swear that when my dd starts to whine, my uterus contracts a little. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Well I'm a wreck today over nothing specific. I cried after DH held my hand after we had an argument. I cried when Hotel California came on the radio because DH and I have sweet memories together from when we were in high school around that song. I cried reading this email I sent to a woman at DH's work after her miscarriage, a woman I have never even met. I cried talking to my SIL about her friend who just lost twins. I cried after reading a post on my other DDC about an 18yo woman whose baby is surely going to die after he's born and her preparing herself in the midst of her grief. I didn't cry like ugly-cry or sobbing or anything, just very choked up with a few tears cracking and desperately holding back that snot-dripping-choking-sob cry that I want to let out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
*sigh*<br><br>
I think I might go take a shower and just fall apart. I know I'm just emotional today and it's fine, especially considering I'm not especially emotional normally during this pregnancy... I just seem to have a day here and there.

Everything. My poor Mother gets the brunt of it. Today she was an hour late taking DS and myself to dinner and she always wears too much perfume. It gave me a headache right off after already being pissed I had to wait so long on her. Then she ask me on the way if we planned to pay my brother's FIL for fixing our car. I went off saying, "We did pay him! Why do you think we wouldn't pay him! Did someone say something about us not paying him or needing to pay him more?" She said she didn't know why she asked but that doesn't sound right. Ugh! Then my Dad came to take our garbage off because DH's van is broken down and said, "You need to double bag this stuff and have hubby put it in the truck." I yelled, "IT IS DOUBLE BAGGED AND DH HAS WORKED TWO DOUBLES IN ROW AND HE'S AT WORK NOW!" I don't know where that came from. I feel like such a bitch lately. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I am overly sensitive at DS's inability to go to sleep any quicker than an hour and a half. I usually start to feel crazy at the one hour mark. SLEEP BABY, SLEEP! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I am taking most of my issues out on my mom, and venting a LOT to DH and BFF. I don't think any of them like talking to me before! My bff is so great too, she went with me to get groceries tonight so she could help me carry them up the two flights of stairs!! I got angry with my mom b/c she has this silver watch and she wears a bead bracelet on the same wrist. Whenever she moves it sounds like a bunch of keys jingling.. I FREAKING HATE IT! I made her move her bracelet to the other wrist. I am a jerk.

I definitely vent to my mom. I called her up crying at 6am about the financial situation, and she was very sympathetic and she said something like, "You need to do XYZ." And I totally yelled at her, like "WE ARE DOING XYZ! JEEZ!" Then I said I was sorry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Right now I'm about to kill the dogs because they have bad manners and when they want to come inside they will stand up and SCRATCH THE <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/censored.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="censored"> WINDOWS! GRRRR. Jeez, you've been outside for 10 min, you can handle a few more minutes!<br><br>
ETA: oh, and I'm oversensitive about my house. It is SO messy, and instead of cleaning it I just want to cry.

I was oversensitive yesterday to everything. I was so sad and feeling so rejected. No idea why. And dh wouldn't just hold me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Can't he read my mind??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Today was good but this evening the kids suddenly not just going to bed TOTALLY set me off. Oh, it was not good. I was on edge shortly before that, too, and a friend of mine just rubbed me back and told me, "They're just being children, Carrie. It's ok. It's ok." I know she was right, but I was just so tense. And it came out of nowhere.<br><br>
I think I need to go to bed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I'm glad I'm not the only one! DH's parents are here and dh is stressed out and treating me mean. I have to ask him to help me and then he moans and groans about it. This might be our last pregnancy; I wish he could just take care of me a little bit....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
MIL.... being MIL. I'm just not in the mood for nosey questions and unsolicited advice. Leave me alone in my nest please.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">:<br><br>

Does your mil stress out your dh, too? Mine completely checks out of reality, so to speak, when his mother is here. It pisses me off BADLY, because it means I'M the one left dealing w/ her and the kids and everything, but then I'm all stressed out on my own. She really makes us crazy. And yeah, get out of my nest!

I think it is his dad that stresses him out. But I'm not sure. Definately something dysfunctional going on that I can't pinpoint - he can get downright mean when they are around. Just all of the sudden he has no tolerance for me and acts like he despises me. And he won't defend me for anything when MIL is picking at me. I'm just on my own. (She's not openly hostile, just "picks".) They have other family here, so we've got a break from them tonight. Hopefully, dh will straighten out!

Oh how sad. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Yeah, seems to be something there. I'm sorry!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I hope things balance out soon and he comes around again. The worst mine does is ignore everything going on around him. He turns on a video game or something and just tunes it all out. I'd like to throw something at him sometimes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
Does he realize he's doing this when his parents are around?<br><br>
And WHY must mil's just pick? I hate that. Mine does that and it irritates the ever-loving crap out of me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

This really gets me. I mean, your pregnant, things happen, darn it they need to be paying attention! My dh never turns his ringer on, and during past pregnancies I had important things he wouldn't answer for so I was often afraid it would happen for labor too. And my mom, insists she has to be the one to take the kids during labor, if bf takes them, she'll be insulted. But that last few weeks, she'll go off for the day, not let me know anything, and like 8 hours later call back. So if I'm in labor (and mine are FAST), and she doesn't want my kids elsewhere, guess I'll just cross my legs? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
But my biggest thing lately is dh. He just says the slightest thing and I'm near tears. No idea why, though often the problem is real, it's not major and I just can't help it. He doesn't handle tears well, when they make no sense and is just at a loss <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> when I do this. Hopefully it passes soon

When I pg with Bella, I was a hormonal mess, it was really bad. One day I had had it (0ver what who knows?) and threw a box of toaster pastries at dh. Oops...yeah I lost it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Honestly, he was o.k. I have bad aim, but i did make me feel better. (not that violence and throwing things is the answer...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> )<br><br>
I was in tears all day. The girls left to go to grandma's house, which is 9hrs away for a whole week and I have never been away from them for that long. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br>
Then every song made me cry...John Lennon - Boy, Beatles - In My Life.<br><br>
Then I began work on a project to keep my mind off of other stuff, and began to cry cause I actually had uninterrupted time to do it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Yep, hormonal mess.<br><br>
I wonder if we are going through a new phase of hormones, cause I haven't been this hormonal in a very long time. Maybe it coincides witha growth spurt?
