Ok.. don't anyone get excited. We're just trying out a new question t_tle for the "frodo" food girls.... Maybe this way, it won't look so suspicious to those who hang out on this forum while at work.....

Morning! Anyone here yet? Misty? you up? Our friend who thinks she needs to remain low profile for awhile is sure welcome to join us! Now that I understand her story, I can quit worrying about her.... and say she's an awful lot like us.... in any case, WELCOME! (hey, just go by something like an initial for a little while... its obviously what I do! Not that I'm excited about my initial.. I'd have chosen something a whole lot more creative if I'd known I was going to be hanging around here so much)

As for storms... tornados don't bother me too much, unless I'm out in a vehicle or in a mobile home at the time a watch or warning is issued. What scares me is hurricanes... Earthquakes are no big deal... I've lived with them most of my life - I actually went to school for a couple years VERY close to the San Andreas Fault... one of the most active fault lines in CA - and one time in N. Ca, it was pretty cool when I was walking through a parking lot, and the ground started to wave like ocean swells, and the cars started rolling back and forth... It was only a 4.8. Whether or not you survive a bad earthquake is hit or miss.. so I figure I've got a good chance. Tornados are usually fairly small, and hit isolated areas...so, once again, I've got a good chance. Hurricanes are HUGE. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide... my chances are quickly diminishing...

Anyone here yet? I feel like if I don't talk to myself, this thread will disappear and you all won't know where to find me..... and I'll be stuck here talking to myself all day... :(

Good Morning D. I never really had a problem with hurricanes. Lived in Florida my whole life and the first part of it was in south Florida. Went through Andrew, right in the main part of it, we got the eye wall and everything. I don't know, hurricanes I always found exciting because you know exactly when and pretty much where it will hit. You can prepare for it, board up your house, go to a stronger building if you don't trust your house. I just feel you can prepare for hurricanes, but tornados.....they have no warning really and they do hit a very small area, but what they do hit is almost always destroyed, it has no chance at all. Anywho, I had the absolute worst pregnancy dream ever last night. Dreamed I went to the bathroom and a bunch of stuff came out and it was mixed with blood. So of course I started freaking out knew I had to call the doc and she would send me to the ER and I was hoping everything would be o.k. But then I looked in the toilet and saw a hand. I reached in and picked it up and it was my whole baby. It grabbed on to my hand and was spaziming(sp) I started screaming but then started singing to it because it was dying in my hand and I wanted it to not be afraid. It was so horrible. Seemed so real.

all by myself... don't wanna be... all by myself... anymore.... sheesh. I can't remember who sings that. I keep thinking Air Supply or Righteous Brothers....

 

D - May 13

Oh my goodness! That is a terrible dream! I think I'd have woken up crying! I've heard of babies being born when their moms got on the toilet... but the ones I heard of lived...

 

D - May 13

I didn't really have terrible dreams last night... but my mind was pretty busy.. I kept bouncing back and forth between my a__sistant's bad att_tude, the stuff I read over on the labor forum and the 10 year old girl on general pregnancy. Exhausting.

 

D - May 13

as far as hurricanes, tornados & earthquakes... I'm convinced that which one scares a person all depends on they're used to.

 

D - May 13

on WHAT they're used to... I really gotta stop trying to reedit my posts in this little itty bitty box....

Yeah I was even wondering that in my dream, if I hurried and got it to a hospital or something would it survive. But I knew it wouldn't because in my dream it was small enough to fit entirely in the palm of my hand, with room to spare on the sides. It was so vivid. I know it comes from the fact that I recently miscarried at home right before I got pregnant though. I pa__sed the placenta, the whole thing in my toilet when I went to the bathroom. It was pretty harsh, kindof weird to think it but I wondered if I picked it up and opened the sac, would I see my baby. I didn't do it though I just flushed it. And that was very hard. The beginning of this pregnancy was really tough for me. But I am to a point now that I feel safe and confident that everything will be o.k. I can feel my baby moving in me and the doctors don't even know how I concieved again as quickly as I did. Si this baby just decided against all odds it wanted to be here and I trust it to make it through. The dream was bad, but I'm not worried about it coming true. Matter of fact, when I first woke up I wondered if in the dream I had known whether it was a boy or a girl. But it was just my baby. Nothing to tell the s_x

I know a little boy who is now about 11 years old who, at birth, fit in his father's hand just the way you describe... but I think I understand what you are saying... I'm sure your recent loss is part of the reason for the dream... I'm so sorry... I had a m/c a year ago... much earlier on than you, but I wondered some of the same things when I started pa__sing all the blood & clots. I was actually amazed at how much it affected me, seeing as I barely even knew I was pregnant, and then not for sure until afterwards when I saw my doc.

 

D - May 13

I think these pregnancies we have now are meant to be... I'm confident that we'll have beautiful babies in October!

You and Steph with your a__sistants. She wants to fire hers though, she just doesn't have that option. One of the problems with you and yours I guess is you seem to be a kind heart. You're putting up with her when you shouldn't have to since you figure she will leave in a few months anyways. Imagine what a good a__sistant could do for you in a few months though.

Morning Ladies....wow D, that is awful, I would have cried also! Other than the dream how are you doing this morning? Workin hard? LOL...How bout you Misty? Guess we are the only early birdies out here. Man last night SUCKED! I cried for like 30 minutes straight. My bf was being such an a__s hole!!!! I told him I was feeling neglected and lonely and he got mad and started fighting with me so I started crying. I walked away to go to the porch to be alone for a minute and he followed me and started talking to me like nothing even happened! I heard him and started crying even harder because I felt like he was ignoring my problem. He was like ,"WTF....Why the hell are you crying?" That made me cry even more so I ran to the bathroom and locked the door and he was out there all like, "Damn....stop crying......!" Yeah....needless to say I pretty much cried myself to sleep last night. My eyes are all kinds of puffy and I have no make up on and the only clean clothes I had this morning dont match and I woke up late for being so cry-ie and tired last night so I couldnt do any laundry this morning.....Sigh....Guys suck. Then to make matters EVEN better (inserts sarcasm) he tries to pick a fight with me this morning!!!! I told him I wasnt feeling well so I was comming home right after work and taking a nap instead of running around....he got mad because that means he has to drive yada yada yada....so yeah, men suck right now and I am sooooo anti men all day today. I was getting my coffee this morning and one of the guys I work with came up to get some and was like Hey! You look tired this morning.....I think I actually growled at him and walked away. I am starting an anti men movement today....

Actually, Misty's the one with the dream... I'm fine.... Sorry to hear of your problems, Robyn.. :( As for the a__sistant... yes, I guess I do try to be kind... and yes, she is leaving, but so am I. Probably within a month of each other. The frustrating part is, she's the best help I've been able to find around here (except one boy... but he went off to college, and I guarentee he'll be a successful gentleman someday soon). The "general" population here is extremely unmotivated. My a__sistant's job pays too little to encourage anyone who is more ambitious, unless they're just using me as a stepping stone into the hospital - in which case they stay about a month. I fear for the future of my department after I leave... My department was created when I came, and I hope not dissolved when I go! We save the hospital hundreds of thousands of dollars annually... but unless someone motivated shows up, I don't know... my job will be posted in June, and put in newspapers in all the surrounding cities... even ones pretty far away. Hopefully someone will show up before I leave so I can at least show them where things are at before they are on their own.
