Hey Jessica, I just got home from work. You still here?

 

jessica - April 10

Now I'm tired. Been working since noon. I'm a waitress so I work 'til we close on the weekends. Fri. and Sat. are worse that is open to close, or 11to11. Long shifts but I only work 3 days a week. Have 4 consecutive days off. I was feeling similar to you, I think, we are looking for a new hose and having a hard time. Plus we don't have much money so we will be struggling getting a mortgage of only 90,000. I feel like, "what am I getting my kids into" not having a very fun time right now.

 

Misty - April 10

Oops, I meant house..not hose. That would definately be an easier thing to find. I gotta go to bed though. I feel like a zombie. Hope you are feeling better and I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Morning, girls. I had my first nightmare over this pregnancy last night... It was a dream about an u/s and my doc said the baby has this rare syndrome, and to expect to lose it tomorrow... It was awful! Thank goodness when I'm awake, I'm intelligent enough to know that the "symptoms" my dream had aren't real! I will feel a little better after my appointment Friday!

Good morning ladies! Happy second trimester to us all. I am gonna be 12 weeks (according to MY calculations) tomarrow. Not quite second tri but hey getting close. Man I had a horrible morning this morning Jessica and totally relate to the scarey feeling alone thing. I just moved into my new apartment this weekend and its all great and I love it so much, but I woke up this morning at 5:30 to get ready and juat started bawling. My bf was sleeping and it was a strange house and our water pressure sucks and the cable isnt hooked up so I couldnt watch my news and I could go on. I felt so lonely and extremely scared like it was the first day of school or something. I still feel like that and I am at work in my normal comfortable environment and all I want to do is curl up with my bf and sleep because I dont want to be here today. I just feel really sad. Glad to know its somewhat normal, but still! It sucks! Anyways hope you all had a good weekend.

Hey Girls~ I'm hoping that this week will be much better for all of us....I think that being stressed about everything is completely normal....really I try not to think about all of the details, considering that we combinding a family each of 2 and then this one, makes 5, how scary is that!!!..........there's so many unanswered questions and concerns, I would be killing myself if I stressed over them all!! The only thing I'm concerned with right this moment is what I'll wear tomorrow..........I have nothing that fits anymore!! and I'm not ready to put on the Maternity shirts yet......so suck it in and deal with it? ARGH>>>>>>>>

 

Robyn - April 11

I hear ya penny. I have a few people donating maternity clothesto my cause but I cant fit them yet, but I cant fit anything else either. We're in betweenies and it sucks! Not only that but are your lips chapped? Oh man my lips are so d__n chapped and nothing helps!!! NOTHING! I am walking around with these crunchy sandpaper lips and dont know what to do. Maybe I am lacking something in my diet? Man at least the sickness is mostly gone. I only get sick now if I dont eat right when I am hungry. Yay thats good news, now a whole new set of issues....nothing fits, cant sleep, chapped lips, always uncomfortable, legs cramping, either too hot or too cold...never a happy medium...sheesh...here is another area where the 'national holiday' "Ode de Pregnant Ladies" comes in handy!

 

penny - April 11

Robyn, your too funny~ My lips get pretty chapped too, have you tried Carmex? Try drinking more water too, I think that helps. I pulled out my prego shirts which I had bought at Motherhoold sometime ago, and I just looked at them and saw the flare, and couldn't do it....so instead I put on a shirt which doesn't cover by belly and a zip up sweater that does cover the shirt and my belly!! But I'm getting tired of wearing the same things......trying to cover one shirt that may not fit completely.....but I'm not ready to let the world know that I'm gaining weight........Im 36 have been working with the same company for 11 years........but I'm still not ready to announce to all those that don't know that I'm pregnant........is that bad?

 

Robyn - April 11

No not a bad thing, I think its every womens choice when she wants to start telling people. There are still people at my work who dont know although I am sure they have an inkling about now. We were in a meeting last week and I was the only one in there munchin on pretzels crinkling and crunching every two seconds. Not only that, I am pretty much living in T Shirts. Its a big change from my normal style so I think people know something is up. Either I m pregnant or poor...which they know thats not really the case. LOL. They pay me too much...lol. As for the lips thing, I suck down water like it is going out of style, I am always thirsty lately thats another fun thing because along with that thirst is the incredible urge to pee...yeah thats a constant also. Isnt being pregnant fun!?!?!?!?! LOL.

 

Robyn - April 11

I feel like such a weirdo. I am eating Gardettos and only picking out the pretzels and those weird little brown salty things...mmmm....

 

penny - April 11

okay get this one for being weird........I feel as though my baby is purring.....you know like a cat!!!!! what's up with that??? Im pretty sure my BF is normal ;) lol

 

Robyn - April 11

Yeah, thats umm...interesting lol. I havent had the 'purring' sensation yet. Maybe its normal. LOL. Man I am tired. I am so ready to go home, but I cant even after work! My bf's, brother's, wife just had her baby last night and we are going to go visit them in the hospital. I am excited but d__nit...I am tired. And the only food that sounds good is some twice baked potatoes and fresh green beans with garlic. Mmm...now I am really hungry.

 

rb - April 11

hi girls - i know about the chapped lips, try the following: Aveno lip definer - it works and plumps up your lips.. you know, cuz we're soooo extremely s_xy right now... or Kiehl's lip balm - expensive as hell, or Mac lip conditioner, the non-tinted kind... works amazingly... as for the clothes thing, i'm still wearing the same clothes i did before, just more layers so it hides the paunch! - d__n, we're hot...
