Re: *~*Flame-Free Confession Friday*~*

  • Nothing IRL...

    TB: I'm trying like he!l to keep up w/the newbie BFPs, but man its hard. I'm still happy for ya'll, its just time consuming with all the posts, I can't keep up!

    I guess now's a good time to say... "Congrats to all the newbies and welcome to the board!!" :o)

    1 Ruptured Ectopic m/c,
    1 Chemical Pregnancy m/c,
    2 rounds of Clomid,
    2 rounds of IUI,
    1 miracle BFP while waiting to start IVF!

    ~High five to my eBFF Chloe!~

  • I told my mom and sisters that I am pregnant but take pride in the fact that my MIL is out of the loop. She is so nosy and over-involved, it makes me laugh every time I talk to her and think about that fact that she doesn't know. It would kill her to know that my mom and sisters know. I'm going to see how long I can keep it from her (my DH will probably want to tell her after the u/s next week). They usually visit us every six weeks for a long weekend to see DS. SO annoying.

  • IRL: I am sick of people feeling entitled to voice their opinions about everything in my life just because I am pregnant. I picked up paint samples for the nursery(I figure it will take a couple months to decide on the colors) and my best friend came over for dinner and said I needed to get some more because those colors just weren't going to work if it was a girl. I told her I had a vision and am not a fan of pink(it's her favorite color) or purple so prefer gender neutral colors for things like walls. She just kept making a 'yuck' face and said I was wrong. Same night, I mentioned the names we have picked out right now. We have had them picked out for over 2 years but that's not saying they won't change. She made a sad face and said "but that is what I was going to name my next dog." And acted like I stole her name...?? Generally everything that has come out of her mouth about my pregnancy has irritated the crap out of me to the point where I don't even want to discuss it with her at all.

    TB: Nothing really.

  • IRL:My good friend has gained over 60 pounds with her pregnancy and I hope I don't gain that much! Her baby also stopped growing 4 weeks ago (but is still okay and healthy just stopped growing) and I blame it on the fact that she never quit smoking. That may or may not be the reason but thats what I think. I won't admit it to her face though because it would hurt her to much. So I am staying far away from anybody that is smoking.

    Damn girl! Thanks for saying that:) I miss TTGP becuase it was so much more fun. I feel like this board shiits our P&R 24/7.

  • WooooHoooo! TGIF baby...

    1. It's difficult to admit but if I'm completely honest with myself I realize that I thought that I was one of the lucky few who wouldn't get m/s. Of course, the waves of nausea are now in full force. Ick!

    2. I haven't fixed my hair all week. Not once. It's been in a pony tail. Not even a pretty one because I've slept on it wet. L-A-Z-Y. Embarrassed 

    3. I was embarrassingly close to just curling up on my couch and watch reruns of Saved By the Bell College Edition instead of coming in to work.

    4. And finally, my bump related confession is that I don't give an eff what the true definition of a troll is on tB. Also, I still picture the cute little fuzzy haired things I used to play with when I was a kid. It's more fun that way.

    I agree completely. I'll add another FFC that is super-flameworthy:

    5. When the BOTB gals start commenting here, I may not agree with them, but things get a lot more fun. Someone hurry and post something stupid... Wink

  • IRL: I had a HORRIBLE baby dream last night, but am doing my best to try and push it out of my mind (hoping that telling my fellow bumpies will help the process) and stay positive.  I am getting SO anxious for the first U/S (Feb 11th), it can't come soon enough!

    Oooh, good one, and I agree. I'm sorry, but I enjoy reading the drama. Reminds me of TTGP and I get a few laughs out of it all!

    & I think people that say they don't like it aren't being completely honest. (Well, except for the poor OP) Just look at the number of views on those threads!

  • Aside from obviously being excited that I'm KU'd, I am also secretly excited that we will be giving both sides of our families the first grandchild and that we beat my SIL.  She's always competing with us for some reason, and bragging about how great she is and apparently told MIL (who for some reason told DH) that she wants to have the first grandchild so they can spoil it.  It's really annoying.  Even though we clearly weren't trying for the reason to purposely beat her to the punch, we did and I get a little happiness out of that Embarrassed

  • I wasn't sad when DH told me they found cancer during MIL's surgery in the fall.  I mean I was sad for DH, but I didn't give 2 shiits about her.  It was like I found out a stranger was sick.

    I spend more time playing Cityville during the day than I do actually working.

  • Sounds to me like your friend is seriously jealous of you and your good fortunes. Try not to let it get to you (if you can)...I've come to realize that there will be some people who you thought were your (longtime) friends end up showing their true colours when something really good happens to you - e.g. marriage, babies, new home, amazing job, happy life...good luck.

     ps - go for the names that you want!

  • If I see one more post about how disappointed someone is that they didn't get to hear the heartbeat when they are 5 or 6 weeks pregnant at their first appointment, I'm going to lose it.  Lurk a little bit people.  What to expect at the first appointment is all over these boards. 

    The same goes for the "I don't have any symptoms is this normal" posts.

  • Here'san example of another person who is jealous/envious of other people's good fortunes.  Your SIL is obviously jealous of you and feels insecure around you. Don't sweat it, be the bigger person and don't rub it in her face - but do enjoy telling everyone (when you do, and make sure she's there to hear it!).  OOOHHH - your baby gets to decide what to call the grandparents!! Hehehe - b/c whatever comes out of hte baby's mouth, whether by themselves or you teach them, that's going to be the names for future grandchildren.  I know, I'm the first born on both sides of hte family and I had that honour.

  • I think I may have tried to molest my husband last night.  I'm not sure if I dreamed it or not, I'm waiting to talk to him to find out.  But if I did it was totally inadvertant and I think I just really rolled over onto him in my sleep.  I vaguely remember waking up to him telling me to get off of him, but that may have been a dream too.  Interesting...

  • I'm feeling guilty for having to lie to my family, friends and coworkers that I'm pregnant, but consdering my past, I'm just too terrified to tell, and then (God forbid), if I loose the baby, I'll have to go through hell telling everyone and end up consolling them (b/c they'll be so upset for me). Only my parents, sibblings, and me/my DHs bestfriends know, and htey've all been given strict instructions to keep their mouths shut (which they are doing).  People have been asking us when we'll be trying again, and some of my coworkers actually asked me flat out if I was P - I lied to everyone saying ''no, not yet."

     OH - and I'm going to go to Taco Bell today to hopefully try to help with my constipation (suggestion made by another sept.mom-to-be)...it's so not healthy and gross, but I'm desperate, and all the healthy foods I'm eating are not helping.

  • I lurk on many boards, participate periodically, but rarely "introduce" myself.  It's a public message board, and I don't feel that I should have to be accepted in order to participate. 

    Similarly, I loathe people at my gym who act like they "own" the bikes in the spin class.  I don't care if I'm not a regular in the class, if I want to take spinning one day and I get to the bike before you, oh wells.  I pay the same amount for the gym you do.  If you want a bike reserved specifically for you, buy your own.

    I would like to skip over breakfast and proceed right to cheese fries for lunch.

    Okay one more... I'm full of it today. Big Smile

    I counted on our blog how many ladies there are due in September and got over 180 names. I think if you want to be included there, you should involve yourself more here too. I sit and wonder - who the heck is that? to some of the names. It's ridiculous those that are in a sense "drive-by sign ups" and will never be back. :eye roll: if this is you.  

    As a general lurker, I see your point, but some people don't have time to actively post & participate all day long.  I don't think it makes it any less acceptable that they partcipate when they can.

  • 1. I love seeing all the MIL posts.  I seriously can't stand my MIL. Thankfully she lives 3 hours away and we don't see her that often.  I also take pride in the fact that my family knows about Baby B and she isn't going to know for a good while yet :P

    2. I hate being so fearful of this pg every single day. Analyzing my CM, poking my boobs to make sure they still hurt, taking ANOTHER HPT this morning to see those pink lines.  Last time I was so care free and just plain happy...but that didn't turn out well.

    Married August 20th, 2005 to the love of my life.

    1st BFP August 6th, 2010. Missed MC discovered at 13 weeks. 

    2nd BFP January 5th, 2011. Beautiful Harper born September 28th, 2011.

    3rd BFP March 15th, 2013. Treated with methotrexate for ectopic pg at 7 weeks.

    4th BFP August 2nd, 2013. Sweet Micah born sleeping at 21 weeks with full T13. 5th BFP July 1st, 2014. Praying for a healthy, full term rainbow!

    I can honestly say that I don't like the below-the-belt drama that happens on this board. I find the debates/disagreements entertaining - but then sometimes it reaches a ..."Yeah?! Well, your fat!" sort of dynamic and my side eye comes in and I think I'm too old for this sh*t.

    Other FFCF:

    1) I lurk on BOTB - have for months - and I actually agree with a lot of things those women write.

    2) I think people can post whenever and how often they want and not have to worry about their participation level.

    3) Flame-free right? I don't think I'll be on TB much anymore. Not because I don't love you girls, but I kind of want to enjoy my pregnancy in real life and I feel like I obsess about it when I'm on the board every day.

    IRL - Facebook makes me hate people.

    BFP #1 - missed miscarriage, 10w3d, saw HB, D&C 2/14/11 / BFP #2 - natural m/c 11/11, 6w / BFP #3 - missed miscarriage, 9w, saw HB, D&C 2/16/12 / BFP #4 - chemical pregnancy 3/12, 4w
