More than half way there!

hey everyone..did you see that Sann posted on the last post? Hope you are all having a good day. I'll check in and keep you opsted on the af issue-LOL.

Good luck, LM3!!! I'm praying for you! Sann-so nice for the update! Glad that the pg is going well! And yes, we have moved in to our new place and so far it's going great. We're pretty much all unpacked and just need to start hanging things on the wall. I really, really like it. Lovedblessings-you are so right about it starting on your back, that was so funny. I needed that laugh this morning! Ahhh-blended families, they're great aren't they? A lot of work. I know exactly what you mean, dealing with ex's, treating all kids fairly, etc. Hard for me to remember that I don't always have a say with dh's son. :) (I always like to put in my 2 cents though-lol) Hopeful-you sound very busy. Remember to keep in touch and keep swimming :) I'm 19w, 3d, I guess that's pretty much half way, right? Yahhhh!!!! My and dh looked at baby stuff last night for the first time. It was overwhelming. We didn't get anything. SIL has a bunch of stuff we'll go through first before buying. I think we are going to find out gender on Feb 5 u/s. I'm so excited. I just can't wait to find out what this little one is. I've heard many moms say that they feel so much closer when they know. And I don't really feel bonded yet, maybe because of everything else going on right now. So, 1 wk, 5 days and counting-lol Feeling crampy, achy and whiney today so I'm sure glad I have you guys! I really wanted to stay home today, but here I am at work. Hope everyone else is well today. Hugs and baby dust! LM3-good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lovedblessings......I don't think there is anything wrong with the baby sleeping with you. I've just never had a child before, so I don't know what to expect or which decisions I will actually make, change, or even stick with, ya know? I just know that I have two cats and would like to have some hair-free zones for the baby and unfortunately my bed isn't a place the cats avoid. LM3....hang in there girlie! Hoping AF can't find her way to your house! Sann....wow 29 weeks, that's awesome. You are in the home stretch! Well, have to clean house today. it's been a week since the cleaning lady was here and the floors have not cat hair, but MY hair, all over them, so must vacuum!!!!

BM5.....I was still typing when you posted. I have been looking at baby stuff forever and it is very overwhelming to think of all the true necessities and then to actually buy them. I have NO idea if I will have a shower or not, and I am too afraid to wait for some of the necessities in case there is no shower, so I keep trying to warn DH that we are going to have to shell ot some cold hard cash soon. Yay, not much longer till your U/S......for my sake and curiosity I hope you find out the gender!!!!

My husband's brother's wife, who is due in April, had the b___s to ask me yesterday if the doctor has made any mention to me about my weight gain. Does anyone else find this tactless, or am I being sensitive? Personally, I thought it was a pa__sive-aggressive attack on me because in reality she is jealous of me and has been since I came into the picture. She is 28 weeks PG and you can't even tell, so every time she sees me she stares me down from head to toe and hides behind a fake smile. I think she's jealous of the fact that I have been showing forever and people don't even know she's PG. She's so petty that the second she found out we were TTC she stopped taking the pill and started TTC as well. How dare she make me feel worse about my weight gain! I can't believe I am letting her get to me like this.

Tracy-that stinks. I kept forgetting to comment about your weight gain concerns. I think with the first pg especially, it is so common. Especially since you were small to begin with. I gained a lot on my first pg and doc said it was because my body had to change to accomodate baby (hips changing, pelvic bone separating, etc.) And besides, it's so worth it. I just can't believe she said something-she has no tact. What was her size compared to yours when you started and does she have any other kids? I would tell her that considering you have a high risk pg and were on bed rest, your weight gain is perfectly normal. I know it's hard, but try to brush it off, besides isn't she the one that in-laws don't care for? Probably why she's so jealous--she can't measure up to you :) Hope you feel better.

hey there, don't even let her bug you. that is just plainly rude and ignorant and doesn't even warrant a reaction. Just completely ignore her. if you make a big deal about it, she'll get the gratification of ticking you off. Just pretend you didn't even get the insult. hugs.

 

lovemy3 - January 24

Hey there. I feel so sad. I also post on a another board for a long time, like as long as with guys and my good friend over there had m/c a 8 weeks this afternoon , keep her in your thoughts today.

 

Tracy88 - January 24

BM5 thanks for making me feel like I was not being too sensitive and just overreacting. No, she has no kids, and to be honest, we are both pet_te people. I guess it's just genetics. The sad thing is my weight wasn't really "bothering" me so much until this week, when coincidentally she just had to open her trap and say something. That's why I wasn't sure if I was just being touchy or not. I am by no means jealous of the fact that she has put on no weight, I really don't care to be honest. I'd rather look PG than not. The only thing I care about is that I have a healthy baby, and that I can get this weight off when all is said and done. I just hate people like her who have to pick on other people to make themselves feel better. Despite the fact that I think she is ugly and has an att_tude to match, I always compliment her and kill her with kindness.....something she just doesn't know how to do. Well, F*&# her. I'm still cuter and sweeter and yes, she is the one the entire family dislikes!

LM3....I was venting when you posted. Sorry about your friend. It is difficult to know what to do for them over the internet. I had another friend on my TTC thread who did IVF, got PG and was all happy until a week later when she lost the pregnancy. That was coincidenatlly the same time I got my BFP, so it was quite awkward and heard. Needless to say, our thread actually broke apart at that time because the rest of us got BFP's and she dropped out of touch. I still think about emailing her to this day, but have no idea what to say. Your friend is in our thoughts. When SIL asked me that question, I said no, that the doctor is not concerned at all and thinks it's quite normal. I left it at that. I am not going to see her much anymore though because she is no longer going to be the secretary at DH's office since her last day is this Friday. That way I won't have to see her when I go meet him for lunch. The only time I will have to run into her is at family affairs. I hope she rots in hell. Sorry, I am on a pregnancy anger spree.

Fourth sentence down is supposed to say "hard" not heard.

 

lovemy3 - January 24

AF just arrived (again). Feeling blah. Anyhow, thats it here.

 

Tracy88 - January 24

Oh LM3....that just plain sucks, I'm sorry!!!!

 

TTC#[email protected] - January 24

Hi everyone. I'm new here but not new to TTC! I'm TTC #3. Is this where TTCers post for women over 35?

 

babymakes5 - January 24

LM3 - I am so sorry! About af and your friend...my thoughts are with you. TTC, welcome to the thread. And yes, on this thread we have quite a mix of TTCer's and some due in Apr, May and Jun. It's a great thread for support. How long have you been ttcing?

 

Tracy88 - January 24

Welcome TTC#3......we are a very ecclectic bunch here! We have preggos and future preggos, so feel free to post. Many of us have been through every realm of TTC there is, so you should have a great support system here. OK guys.....here's the deal with me. I have now taken Tylenol #3 for the last 5 days at the end of the day because my back pain is just unbearable. I put ice on it, went for the ma__sage, etc.... but nothing is working and I don't know how much longer I can go on like this. The fear and guilt that I have for taking the codeine is so overwhelming, that if the baby doesn't move, I fear that I have done something horrible to her. What the hell should I do? I called and made an appointment with the back doctor for Monday. They couldn't see me sooner because he is out of town. I just left a message at the OB's office because I feel like I am at my wits end. I won't even tell my husband that I have taken the Tylenol with codeine. I spent the entire first trimester of this pregnancy in bed, am I expected to get back in bed for the last 3? I don't know if I can do that without really losing my mind.
