Thanx lori.. im glad you know what im talking about. I love being pregnant.. Im so thankful for this little BOY.. but.. I just get to a point where I feel very very unattractive.. and there is NOTHING i can do to make me look fine. My stomach sticks WAY WAY out.. im going to take a pic tomorrow to show you what I mean!!!! I seriously look like im 7 months pregnant.. OH WAIT.. thats probably because I almost am!! LOL ~Kristin~

Kristin, honey. We get it we really do. As much as we are thankful for the pregnancies we could all do without the bad mornig sickness, the aches, the simple 'blimp' moods and generally feeling like an incubator for what my Doctor call a 'parasite'!!!! LOL! Try and get some rest sweetheart. I took my pain medication and away to sleep I went - a least without a headache although the pelvis is another thing! Everytime I sneeze now it clicks - quite weird and a whole lot painful! I am falling apart from the inside out! Shopping sounds like fun - especially with the exchange rate in our favour at the minute! LOL! Uncle is moving to San Diego early next year so I might use him as a base and move about from there - and of course little bro is in Florida so it could prove fun! Logan is at the Doctor this afternoon (since I was a complete b___h on the phone and told them I wanted an appointment, not a 'call back after 2pm'!). He is finding it difficult to breathe and his chest wasa little 'raspy' last night so I am not chancing a chest infection. He was raised up last night, loaded with neurofen and smothered in Karvol. Poor child was probably high as a kite from the meds and the fumes! LOL! Anyway just a quick check in. Oh and the Willow Tree - a friend of mine collects them and she bought us one for the renewal - 'Promise'. She ahs one of a pregnant woman her hubby bought her when she fell pregnant with Sophie after a miscarriage and I bought her one called 'New Life' (I think) where daddy is holding a newborn and mum is peering over her shoulder. Considering they don't have faces they are very 'expressive' if you know what I mean. Anyway off to food shop (I HATE shopping) and drag the kiddies into a sunny but cold morning. Ladies take care, will check in later!

Morning girls i have missed you all the past few days. it was so wonderful seeing my friend we looked like too idiots bawling our eyes out when we saw each other she was at the pool and she ran up to me and we just started crying. We had a such a great time the wonderful thing was the husbands and the her boys and Anthony just hit it off so well. We wished we could have stayed a few more days with them. But my friends husband is going to fly her and her older son down to FL for my shower which is the best gift ever. So i am trying to catch up on everyone so i need to back part 61. I cant believe how much we can talk.

 

BriannasMummy - December 3

Hey girls. Im still soo soo tired. I think thats going to be my new song and dance for a while. Brianna is getting ready for school.. and Ka__sidy is yelling " da da da da". I dont have to brave the freezing cold weather because Joe is going to take Bri to school. Frances: Youre so funny.. a dud.. NO..i wont ever think youre a dud.. it is a little bit expensive.. but if you do a little bit of the leg work... we might be able to make it a little more appealing... but ONLY because YOU have connections!! I hope that the dentist appointment goes well.. I seriously need to go and get this tooth with a hole in it fixed.. or taken out.. its disgraceful and its just not so pretty. LOL... I just dont want to be "Kristin the toothless wonder" I mean it does sound a little superheroish.. but not quite the name im goin for. Tory: Those statues you are talking about, sound a little scary.. NO FACES? Those are like the dreams that everyone talks about.. "I had this dream last night.. that I was makin out with this guy.. and then I looked AND HE HAD NO FACE".. ya know what I mean!! I hope Logan is okay, those chest infections can be HORRENDOUS.. Ka__sidy has had 3 so far in her short little life. I hear you on the money situation.. I get so excited to shop in Maine.. because my money is actually worth more.. which has never ever ever happened to me.. they say the Canadian dollar hasnt been higher then the American one since the 70's. Ooo la la... I wish we had the british pound though.. sheesh.. Id shop till my head rolled off.. lol! I hope the rest of you are doing wonderfully.. things are almost splendid here. Im going to vent.. and IM sorry but you are my girls and well I basically tell you girls EVERYTHING.. so here it goes... I am so very upset with my house. We did the walk through.. and everything they PROMISED was fixed and redid.. ARE NOT. My furnace is PUMPING but the idiots.. put a "quick" furnace in here that isnt big enough for the house. So my room.. the one that Ka__sidy still sleeps in.. is freezing.. the other night it was about 59 degrees in my bedroom.. just as soon as my feet touched the ground.. they turned to ice. So today.. I DID NOT pay my mortgage.. I kept the funds in my second account.. and I did NOT transfer them. I am SOO upset.. I cant have kids in a house that has a high of 62 degrees.. NOT IN CANADA.. home of the frozen man!!! Yesterday it was minus 9 outside.. but with the wind chill it was more like minus 21.. can anyone say BRRRR. My dh decided to take the walls apart downstairs to replace with new.. only to find all the insulation they said they put in is NON EXISTANT.. behind one of the walls.. they put a couple of pieces of STYRAFOAM!!! I dont know what to do.. my lawyer brother told me that they guy im dealing with is sheisty.. and hes lieing to me. So I dont know what to do..or how to get out of this.. but Im so freakin worried!!! Stress is a small word compared to how I feel about this house.. and Im an idiot to believe people whenthey say "thisis fixed.. and that is fixed" I might as well have "sucker" stamped on my forehead. If this is how my life is going to be here.. I WANT OUT, now I gotta figure out how!! Sorry girls.. this is just a vent.. and I dont expect you to have answers.. its a difficult situation.. and Ive gotta figure out what to do. I might have to move to an apartment.. and leave this house the way it is.. until its warmer.. but then ill be broke paying a mortgage and rent.. I dunno.. Thanx for listening.. youve been a great audience. *takes a bow* ~Kristin~

 

BriannasMummy - December 3

ROBYN.. just as I was writing my post.. I thought "Robyn is back today.. Yay".. you were definatly missed. Dont ya just love those trips, like that. I love seeing people that I havent seen forever. Like when Lynn (my sister) came home in July from England.. I felt like i was dreaming. Kudos for her dh flying her out for the shower.. when is that? ~Kristin~

 

ROBYN - December 3

KRISTIN - wow i cant believe whats going on with your house. Now kinda update me in case i wasnt paying attention to your house issue. Did you just buy this house? Or is this a house you have all lived in for a while and are now just finding out all this stuff wrong? I cannot believe all this. I know i certainly dont have answers now your brother said hes sheisty does this guy have a contractors license and is he insured? I am sorry you are going thru all this and i cannot believe how cold it is there I am sitting with the a/c on at 71 degrees in the house and high today is 83. We are getting a so-called "cold" front tomorrow which will drop us in the 50's at night and in the 70's during the day WOO- HOO blizzard time LOL. My shower is set for January 20th. My parents already had the invitations made i will send you a copy of what it looks like. Yes it was so cool to see my friend it was just not long enough. Especially to see Anthony get along so well with their son they were inseperable i hate that they dont live here. She so much wants to move down to Florida but her husband commutes into NY City everyday from NJ and says that FL is just too slow paced for him he couldnt live down here. ):

 

FrancesM - December 3

Kristin, I am sorry that you guys are freezing your a__ses off! That is crazy that they did not do what they said they would. That is bs. I would be on the phone first thing! It is way to cold for your little ones and your feet! Actually the price is not that bad, I don't think. He pays 3 times that to go to Kansas every year and about your price for Kentucky so I don't really see the price being an issue. I love the fact that I have connections! lol I just hope he can work something out. As far as the dentist goes, I am r-e-a-l-l-y going to try and get out of it with out a cancel fee. I just don't want to go and my mom does not want me to go either! She thinks I should but it off for a few more months. Yes, you need to get that hole filled or capped so it does not deteriorate, then you will be the toothless super hero! lol Welcome back Robyn. I am glad you had a great trip! That is awesome that she will be able to come in for your shower! Jen, how are you feeling? When are you going to test? Allie, when are you going to test again? I hope you guys get the bfps! Amanda, in case you are checking in, hello! I hope all is well for you. I hope you have a stress free month. You are missed. Lori, thanks for starting 62. The other was way too long. Ok, gotta issue some airline tickets then hit the road. I am SO looking forward to a Peppermint Mocha Coffee from Starbucks!! Yummy! I hope everyone is having a great Monday!

 

ROBYN - December 3

OMG i just spilled coffee all over my laptop i am so clumsy i called jason hysterically crying. He thought something happened to me since being pregnant i am dropping everything. So now i am using his laptop. I think i totally ruined mine. He said dont worry nothing we can do about it. I am lucky hes so understanding cause i dont think i would be. It wound up all over my pj's, furniture how wonderful i am glad i had all my brand new furniture protected the coffee came right up.

 

duckiec - December 3

Just saying hi on the new thread- like to get the emails even if I hardly ever have time to actually read. :( Hope this week is a good one for everyone!

 

BriannasMummy - December 3

Robyn: Here is the deal, we bought the house in June, and weve been living here since July. So we just went by what they TOLD us.. instead.. we find that the furnace isnt big enough for the house, and that there is NO insulation. They told us a bunch of things were "just fixed" or "brand new".. and now when it really counts its not working. Here is what happened.. its a lawyer that owns this house.. he hired a contractor to do this work.. BUTTTTTT he WILL NOT give me an itemized list of what was fixed, now that we are in here. His family owns a mortgage company.. so we just went through that mortgage company.. for convenience purposes. We went to "service New Brunswick" and they gave us a print out of our property.. we found that there are 3 OTHER mortgages besides our own on this house. Three have NOT been discharged.. and I dont even know if they are active. It list mine and Joe's name as the owners of the house though. When my brother found this information.. he then explained that the lawyer guy that owns this house.. DOES NOT have a family owned mortgage company.. but it is HIM himself that has the mortgage... this concerns me a WHOLE bunch. The more that pa__ses the more things are starting to puzzle me. I dont know what Im going to do.. its a mortgage.. my name was on that little line on the contract.. but I cant have my kids cold and sick all the time, and then I wonder why Brianna has had strep throat, and why Ka__sidy has had 2 chest infections?! So here's what Im up against.. do i walk away.. and have that on my credit (my credit is already blemished.. but not HORRIBLY.. im pretty sure this is cla__sified has HORRIBLE blemish)... do I let them give up on me.. by just keeping the mortgage in a seperate account.. or do I move into an apartment and pay both rent and mortgage, and be broke until March.. meaning NO extra money for ANYTHING.. ever. Its a hard hard hard hard call.. something Im going to have to think long and hard about.. we have a furnace guy coming today to give us a quote on a new furnace.. but I just dont have 10,000 dollars just laying around. Yeah I have a little savings.. but thats supposed to help us until Joe goes back to work from being layed off... its a pickle, well get through it.. just not sure if ill have mud on my face afterwards. ~Kristin~

 

BriannasMummy - December 3

Gracious.. i just read that.. and I think i layed it on pretty think.. and made it sound like we are paupers.. LMAO.. We are not paupers.. we do have a nice life, and we arent hard up. I just have a budget thatI follow.. and I cant add a 10,000 dollar "extra" no matter how i crunch the numbers.. besides yeah ill get a new furnace.. but I wont get the other issues taken care of. I am so so sorry that you all have to listen to this c___p!!!!!!!!! Ill shut up now.. thnx for letting me get this off my chest. ~Kristin~

 

stefkay - December 3

Kristin, wow...I'm so sorry you are going through this and at this time of the year too...I wish I could help, but I have no clue what I'd do! Those are some of the reasons Jessie and I still rent right now. We are slowly looking for a place to buy, but kind of feel secure right now :) hi ROBYN! Welcome back!!! SOSOSLEEPY, if you come back and check in I just wanted to say hi again and that I missed ya on here! Yep, I'm still here and kickin, lol. It was one hell of a rough year (in almost exactly a year I had 3 miscarriages and am now pregnant for the 4th time). It seems to be going well so far at 9 weeks--I've never gotten this far in the past and never had a good u/s in the past (I've had 2 good ones so far), but I'm still nervous and won't feel safe really until I get well past 12 weeks if I make it that far! I'd be sorely disappointed (to say the least) now if I m/c just because everything has gone perfectly and it would really knock me upside the head. I'm getting a doppler tomorrow and it is a good time because symptoms are starting to subside some so I'm in freak out mode again today, lol! So you see the doc on December 20th? Will you be going to a fertility specialist? Boy did I learn a lot researching this past year, so I know what you mean. Let me know what you are going to do. I guarantee the dr. will be able to help you guys. Hell, you may end up with multiples right off the bat!!! ;)

 

cyndilea1973 - December 3

Good Morning Ladies..just spent the last 15 min reading up on the chatter from the weekend. Frances--My thoughts are with you today for your doc's appointment, all will be perfect..I feel it in my bones! Stef--I think your crampiness was just the normal stretching of your uterus, making more room for your little bean! Allie--Hon, sorry your down about af possbilby coming..grr..but maybe JUST MAYBE you are having implantation bleeding.. I know sometimes I feel like I want to take a break from this whole ttc thing (it's like a lifestyle..as much as suddenly becoming vegetarian) especially after 10 days of thinking every spot could be implantation, every twing is the uterus stretching, b___bs hurting, tired, and then BAM! af comes and I don't think I can try another month..especially with everyone else around you coming up BFP..but then you suck it up..and try again with the hopes that your turn is next month..And then in my siuation, I have to sit and wait and wait. Nothing good comes easy right? Sorry if my pep talk is corny or one that's been said a thousand times, just know that it comes from my heart ((hugs)). I just had a kick in the ovaries this weekend from my dh..he informed me that he has to work on Xmas, and will be in Orlando...I am SOOO bummed that I will be alone on Xmas. It really sucks. Hope all you wonderful ladies are having a great Monday. ++Cyndi++

 

ROBYN - December 3

STEF - wow havent seen SOSLEEPY in ages i dont even think i was preggo when she last posted??? KRISTIN - I dont even know what to say you are really in a bind with these major decisions. I dont think many of us have 10 grand lying around especially to put towards a furnace and never thought for one second you were all paupers LOL. You guys have to weigh the pros and cons of this situation obviously. Now even if you moved like you said then you are paying rent and a mortgage but you cant really even sell the house at this point because its gonna need to be fixed prior to selling. Then on the other hand what do you do if your family is constantly getting sick this isnt good either. I dont envy the decisions you guys have to make. Sounds like the guy who sold this house needs a good a__s-whoopin i hate people like that. I am truly sorry guys are such an awful situation.
