Re: FFFC!!!

  • Everyone's response to this pregnancy, and I mean everyone, has been "hopefully you finally get your boy!!". Truth is, I'd rather have another girl. Don't get me wrong, if it is a boy, I'm sure I will love him more than words and the idea of me ever wanting a girl again will seem silly. But, I love love having girls. So, if it were up to me, I would want another one.

  • I have a coworker who likes to pretend he's cute and doesn't like to disclose information about what he needs(in regards to equipment) and is just a know it all. I purposely make him do all the paperwork required and am a sticker about the process because I don't trust him. He wants to act like a know it all ass, fine, I hold the keys to the supply room and my boss will back me 100%. Jerk face.

  • Hopefully this doesn't come off as snarky, but I have to laugh at the FTMs who post about other people's kids and discipline. I shouldn't because I know I felt the same way at one point. I'm sure I've said my kid will never act that way. Now when I see other people's kids throwing a fit I just start saying my hail mary's and hoping it's not my turn tomorrow.

    This. Yes. I was shopping with my mom a couple weekends ago, and there was a little one probably 2ish, and she was PISSED. I told my mom, "I used to judge those people.. and then I had Emma." She just laughed. My first was the easiest kid in the world. My second.. holy mother of stubborn. She is fiercely independent, strong willed like nothing I've ever seen, and of course freakishly strong to boot. Flashback to the "You just wait" post from Drea a couple weeks ago. Ha.

  • I have a spin off on the behavior posts above. For me I knew kids can act horribly and it's not always the parents fault. I however did judge people that brought snacks into restaurants for the kids. I thought "really a 2 year old can't wait 10 minutes?
    God punished me for my judgement of those moms with a toddler who cries and screams "food" if a table near us gets food before we do. I'm talking inconsolable makes it look like he never eats crying.
    So I guess that I give snacks to my kid to keep him quiet is my confession.

    My MIL oversteps her boundaries all the time and I'm scared it will be 100 times worse once baby is here. I came home yesterday and she's on our back deck hanging up windchimes. Like 10 of them. Why? Because she loves them. If I were on my computer I would PIP it. I hate windchimes. This morning at 5 am it sounded like we had a windchimes symphony outside. And truth is, right now I don't have the energy to fight with my husband about how much she irks me sometimes.

    Oh wow, that sucks! If you take them down will she get the hint or just get pissed?

    Ehh, I think she'll get pissed. And my husband will tell me it's rude. Maybe this wind will knock them down and blow them away. Far, far away.

    lol, ah yes the "wind"....maybe leave one of the heavier ones broken in the yard as evidence. ;-)

  • UGH! Every year we plan out xmas eve the same...2-3:30 at my husbands grandma's, 4-5:30 at my grandma's, then my parents house at 6. The past 2 years I have been jipped at my grandma's b/c one year we tried to leave my husband's family but O no they had to do pictures before we left and we ended up 45 minutes late to my grandma's. Last year, we got out of there on time but then my siblings (who had went early) and parents decided we were leaving my grandma's early so I only got like 30 minutes there. This year I told my family we had to have an official time and they all agreed on 4-5:30...Perfect right? Yesterday my husband tells me we are supposed to be at his grandma's at 3. Are you kidding me! And he says that has always been the time, they never had it at 2, but he's WRONG!! So now either we only get 30 minutes at his grandma's or my family gets jipped once again!!

  • I'll play!

    My pregnant co-worker has been really getting under my skin lately, pretty much with everyone in the office: i.e: throwing people under the bus so she looks better than everyone.  She is a FTM and 99% of the time I support her and answer her questions about her pregnancy. 

    She's super nervous about labor, so lately, I may have been egging her on a little bit and adding fuel to the flame.....Stick out tongue

  • My husband had a board meeting last night and after I put G down to bed I read some of the news and started crying so hard (again) about Newtown that my nose started bleeding. Then I had a glass of red wine to calm myself down. So I drank alone on the couch crying with a bloody nose while pregnant. It was a small glass, but it was still a pretty pathetic scene. (It was also my first time since my BFP and will be my last for a while"!)

  • I have a bunch of close girlfriends that get together once a month or so..and I love them all to pieces...But we are team green and they are really P!SSING me off with the "im making it so difficult for them to buy gifts" and "i dont like to buy green or yellow"...so last night i finally said "tough SH!T ladies, we want to find out when our baby is born...if you don't want to buy gender neutral then you can wait until the baby is born to buy the baby a gift if you feel so inclined."

    May I add that only one has a child and she simply said "your stronger than I was, I had to know as soon as possible"..and she dropped it...Theres lots of things for baby that arent clothes that you can buy that do not have to be gender specific....ok rant over man that felt good!!

  • I don't want to go to Christmas lunch by my inlaws because one annoying gossipy extended family member of theirs will be there. The excess saliva thing is still bugging me and I am REALLY embarrassed to have to go to lunch with my spit cup. I feel as though this person will tell everybody..my family and I have had a lot of bad history with this person and I don't feel to share my Christmas with her. I am seriously contemplating making myself throw up and telling DH I don't feel well enough to go with him.

    I know I should put on my big girl pants and go but I just don't wanna !!!!

  • I haven't gotten my husband anything for Christmas yet, or my baby niece. I sort of don't want to because the thought of going out to the stores right now is mentally overwhelming.
  • The word panties grosses me out. I have goosebumps just from typing it. Ew.

  • I stopped wearing deodorant about three months ago. My FI hasn't noticed... so I'm going to take that as a sign that I can keep not wearing it.

    YES. And the word moist. My husband will always say it and watch me squirm because I hate that word. So much.

     

    I hate the word stool... like when they talk about a stool sample.

  • I have not been sick at all this entire pregnancy. However, I have definitely been pulling the pregnancy card when the garbage needs to be taken out, claiming that "it's making me nauseous!" DH just goes along with it and takes care of the offending smell.

    I had a friend that hated it too. So, now I giggle and think of her whenever I hear it. Have you ever seen the episode of How I Met Your Mother where Barney puts on a "play" for Lily where he just says the word moist over and over again to torture her? Garsh I love that show...

     I don't know, I agree and disagree with this.  I will be a FTM, and I totally agree, I have no idea what to expect, I understand when kids cry in the store and things like that.  But I also know, from watching my sister, brother, and their spouses, that I will do things differently.  My sister and brother are much older than me and their kids run wild because all they do to discipline is say "stop that" over and over again.  My husband and I just talked last night about how they need time out, a spanking, any kind of a punishment!

  • My DH has been working out of town 5 days a week staying in a hotel. I'm happy he's working but that's where it ends! I'm so tired, sick, work full time 12 hr days and just want a break! 

    I work x mas day so my family planned to celebrate the day after at my grandmas an hour away. This am DH breaks it to me that he has to leave as soon as x mas is over to go back to work. I just about cried! Missing x mas with LO and I know it's selfish but now I have to do it all once again! I HATE this and needed to vent! 

    Were supposed to have an elective US today or tomorrow and I'm just so angry I might not even go! ( I know I'm over reacting but I need to pout for a bit)

  • It drives me nuts when people use a broad-brush and say "men don't understand" in regards to pregnancy/ women related.   

    Quit stereotyping men and letting them get away with being jerks.
