I hope no one minds that I keep starting these threads...but it is such an easy way for me to keep up with everyone and how they are doing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">.<br>
(and I didn't see one started already..)<br><br>
So how are we all doing this week?! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day!!<br><br>
Nothing much going on here...I am uncomfortable but trying not to think negatively about any of it...which is really hard because I seem to be an emotional wreck much of the time lately...<br><br>
Oh and my latest thing seems to be spilling stuff on my huge belly...but not being able to see it all of the time because I can not see OVER my huge belly...so I keep staining my maternity shirts...and I have just enough time left that I feel like I need to replace them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Must be more careful!<br><br>
28 weeks now...(I was not counting for awhile..but counting actually seems to help it seem like not so long at this point...)...and I seriously feel like I have been pregnant FOREVER. I really can not believe I still have like 12 weeks to go *sigh*....somedays that feels like nothing at all..but more often it feels like an eternity...<br><br>
So, I am going to try not to think negatively about that either....and just focus on the things I need to do before baby is ready to come.

ugh, i feel awful. this is my 2nd day of feeling too nauseated to eat or drink anything. i'm starving and have no energy but even a sip of water comes right back up. ds is sick and crying nonstop. last night he puked all over the bedding then rolled around in the puddle while i was running to turn on the light. dh isn't much help, he was sleeping in another room because when ds is sick he's hard to sleep with... no kidding! puke is not what i like to wake up to, especially when i want to puke myself!<br>
i have a ton to do today but can't move. this needs to end.

26 Weeks here. I have the same problem of spilling things on my belly too.<br>
I realized this morning that I have officially gotten to big to wrap a normal sized bath towel all the way around me.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> It's a bit embarrassing actually.<br>
Tommorrow is my birthday and my twins birthday too, so I'm going to be busy all day. They didn't want me to buy them presents this year, just give them money and take them to ToysRus and let them pick out what they want. So, that makes things alot easier for me, but at the same time I feel like I'm missing out on something by not wrapping presents.<br>
We are going out to dinner at Disney World for a character dinner. It is kind of a tradition that we do that every year and it is always fun.<br>
Hope everyone else has a good week! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Josybear - I really feel for you, how miserable!! I hope the sickness passes quickly for you and your ds!<br><br>
I'm feeling pretty good. I have pretty much constant indigestion and can't tell if I have gas or if it's BH CTX. Who knows . . . .<br>
We have finally hired someone to paint our house so we will be moving within a very short period and it can't be soon enough!<br><br>
Our Mother's Day was nice, I'm going to try to post a picture here from it. Dh got me a set of handmade serving bowls from our local arts festival and my parents got me a propane grill. So, that will make cooking easier this summer without heating up the kitchen!<br><br>
Hope everyone else had a great Mother's Day!!!<br><br><br><a href="http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s64/melissa92495/Summerpics2007056.jpg" target="_blank">http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s...ics2007056.jpg</a>

26 weeks and a few days... or something like that. I forget.<br><br>
Yesterday I was sooo uncomfortable! And then I realized that I have 3 more months of this to put up with! I just could not find a position that felt good. About the only thing I want to do is be on my hands and knees, but it's sort of hard to accomplish anything that way.<br><br>
No more regular BH ctx here... so that's good. Apparently taking it easy for a couple days and reducing the amount of stress has helped. Mother's day was nice... didn't do anything, really, just had my MIL and SIL down for dinner and then went to bed early.<br><br>
I really have to start preparing for this birth. Ack. I have too much to do.

25.5 weeks here. Feeling good! I too have the oops on the front of the shirt problem! It's like the belly is just 'there' and it happens LOL I think it's combined with the clumsy pregnant lady thing.<br><br>
Beautiful pic WM! And sounds like great gifts! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We had a mellow mom's day. My hubby's b-day was also this weekend, so we did a lot of "oooh no...it's YOUR day...let me" "Ohhh no...it's all about you...let MEEEE" so it was actually pretty comical LOL We pretty much just hung out and then went to the movies on Sunday since I had an intense craving for buttery movie theater popcorn..yyuummm!

I had a doctor's appointment today and I've lost another pound since last month. This is really weird ... but maybe it's related to going off Zoloft. Anyway, I plan to try to eat more protein and make sure I get enough healthy food.

i'm 26 weeks today. the first half of my pregnancy seemed to just fly by. now time is moving so slowly. since seeing my baby girl at the u/s and all the movement i get now, it's made me really eager to meet this baby. i want to hold her now, not have to wait another 14 (or more) weeks.

Walden's momma that is such a beautiful picture!<br><br>
I'm 28 wks here and physically I feel great - but I've been so cranky lately. I know I'm not getting enough rest and I have to try really hard not to take it out on everyone around me.<br><br>
My Mother's Day was great, dh bought me a lilac bush a couple of weeks ago and planted it beside our patio <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Sunday he took me out to a fancy brunch at a posh hotel. The food was spectacular. DS wasn't feeling too well, MIL was watching him while we went to brunch, then when we got home we snuggled in our lazy boy chair and napped together - I think that was my favourite mother's day activity of all time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I can't believe I have ONLY 12 wks left <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Sometimes the baby's movements get on my nerves, she's apparently a big fan of rolling around and pushing out on my belly and in every direction all at once. I'm trying to enjoy feeling the movements because part of me wonders if we'll have any more children after this one. It's hard when all I want is to rest and for everyone to leave me alone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Hello everyone. Happy Tuesday! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Well, I have been having alot of pain lately. The only way to describe where it, is that it is on the bottom of my belly. It feels like muscle pain of some sort, like the muscles are getting tired of carrying so much weight. It seems to happen when I am on my feet for any length of time. Anyone else having this?<br>
I have a question for you guys. Is it wrong to want some type of attention or recognition on your birthday? What I mean is that Mother's day just passed and I got nothing. The only person that said anything was my FIL. He called me to say Happy Mother's Day which I thought was nice. My DH said nothing. It was like the day never happened. I know my other 3 kids aren't his, but I am working really hard to have this baby for him and just wanted him to notice. I spent my Mother's Day working, and then coming home and cleaning the house while being by myself. I went and picked up my kids from my Ex's house and took them out to eat and did have a good evening just me and them. Yesterday, I thought my DH would say something about it being Mother's Day on Sunday, but he didn't. I even told him that I had dropped of his Mother's presents and he just said Ok.<br>
Well, fast forward to today. It's my Birthday. I actually got the day off. Dh started working parttime for my company last month and had to go to work today, so I dropped him off. I told him on the way about how I was going to pick up the cupcakes I ordered for my twin's classes and drop them off. (Today is my twins B-day too.) He never said Happy Birthday or anything to me. Now, last year, he didn't really say anything about my birthday either, but he was really sick on my birthday, so I figured that was why. I spent my birthday taking care of him. But, this year, I just don't understand why he seems like he doesn't care. I feel bad for feeling bad about it, but I just want him to notice. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br><br>
How would you handle this?

mommysusie, does he have any idea that these days are important to you, and that you feel you aren't getting any recognition? if he's used to ignoring his own birthday maybe he doesn't realize you don't want to ignore yours... i'd tell him that it's important to you that he aknowledge certain days for you.<br><br><b><span style="color:#FF0000;">HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!</span></b>

OMG I would have an absolute fit. I don't even know what I would say but I would be very very angry. Oh yeah, there would be plenty of tears too. Those days are very important to me but it did take him a while to figure that out. As it is, we've been together 11 yrs and I tell him exactly what I want him to do for me for special occasions or else he would totally let it go by. It's not because he doesn't love me though, it's just because they aren't as important to him.<br><br><b><span>HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!</span></b>

No, he loves his birthday. His birthday is in June and last year, I bought him several presents and then surprised him with a trip to Miami for the weekend.<br>
Since I have posted last, my FIL and MIL called wished me a happy birthday. I couldn't help but to break down and start crying while I was on the phone with my MIL.<br>
My Dh isn't the type to surprise me with something later on this evening either.

Well I shouldn't give advice because my route is never direct... but I would probably go buy myself something very nice and make a point of saying that since he didn't get anything you did it yourself. I would wait a day or so though to give him an "allowance" of time.<br><br>
I hope you can have a Happy Birthday anyway!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Mommiesusie, that just sucks. I would be really hurt and angry if my dh acted like that. That's just selfish. I think you should do something special for yourself and your twins and try not to let him bother you.<br><br>
I hope you have a happy birthday!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/birthday.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="birthday">:

25 weeks now. I feel like this pregnancy has flown by, I haven't even had time to write in a journal. I think I should do a video journal this time, maybe I could get that done. I'm starting some braxton hicks now and just started feeling extra tired and a little nauseous the last could of days, don't know what that about? Anyways, hope everyone had a great mommies day!
