Trying to Get Pregnant

Re: Monday Bitchfest

  • So DH came down with a virus about a week ago and of course he went to the doc and they couldn't do anything for him. In an effort to avoid getting it, I kept LO upstairs with me and DH stayed downstairs. Well a few days ago LO was showing signs of a cold so we figured he contracted the virus. As of yesterday it is pretty  much full blown like DH's. I've pretty much been up (with maybe a 20 minute nap here and there if I'm lucky) since I went to bed at 11:00 last night. DH is still somewhat sick, but he's well enough to help out and he's not. After the 50 millionth time I got up to get LO last night I was about ready to punch him in the face when I heard him snoring.

    The thing that pisses me off to no end is that I know I will be the one taking care of LO when I get it. Don't get me wrong, even though it doesn't seem like it I do like taking care of LO when he's sick to make him feel better. It just bothers me that he can just so simply use the sick card to not help but when I get sick it's "well someone needs to take care of the baby". At the very least there could be some moral support going on there. Gah vent over thank you ladies

  • I have two today, the second is long...

    1. Someone at work is wearing WAY too much perfume. My nose is burning from it, that's how bad it is. Seriously, if you can't tell when to stop, just don't wear it.

     2.  My aunt REALLY needs to learn how to stay out of other people's business and keep her mouth shut. My mom recently left my step-dad, and is in a new relationship with someone who lives in MH's old neighborhood named Brian. When MH lived in that neighborhood, there was a man named Brian that he didn't get along with and would fight, etc. Since we don't know my mom's new BF from Adam, and due to the possibility of him being the same man MH had issues with, we didn't want DD over there until we met the guy.

    My grandmother watches DD every other week, and we told her that we didn't want DD over at my mom's and why, and my grandmother was fine with that. My aunt, however, decided she was going to keep prodding the issue,  so we told my grandmother if my aunt didn't stop and leave it between MH, my mom, and myself, that DD wouldn't be allowed over there again, because my aunt was wanting to take her over there without our permission, etc.

    My aunt decided to tell my mom that if they (my mom) spoke to us or mentioned Brian, that my grandmother wouldn't be allowed to watch DD anymore. So, because of this, my mom hasn't spoken to MH or myself in about 2 months at the risk of us not allowing my grandmother to watch DD anymore.

    I hate that this woman (my aunt) needs to jump into issues that don't involve her then spread false information. She is type of person who has to make everything about herself, and make herself out to be the victim in the story. She really needs to learn how to mind her own flucking business.

    TL;DR version: My aunt is a biiiitch who needs to stay out of other people's problems and stop making them about herself and try to cause bigger issues between people than there already are.

  • To the lady I nanny for - I'm not a housekeeper, I am here to watch your child. The list you give me of "requested" chores gets done when I have time - putting check boxes next to them today won't make me do them.  You want a maid, hire a maid. I don't do this junk in my own home.

    I'm not a taxi service to drag your child back and forth to you whenever you get a free minute at work, I am here to take care of your child.

    I also cannot bend the space-time continuum - your child wakes up from her nap at 10am, I need to change her and feed her and clothe her, and then I bring her to you for 11am.  Then she falls asleep on the way home and naps until 3pm, and you get home at 4pm. There is not time to add in "outdoor playtime with other kids".  Yes, I can wake her up earlier, but then she's just going to nap when you want to see her and you'll be pissy. 

    You can't have it all.  Right now you have a nanny who is entirely overqualified, loves your daughter, teaches her words all day long, keeps her safe, tries to get her to eat good food, does your dishes, cleans all the baby's laundry and puts it away, vacuums, and brings her to you every day so you can see her during your lunch break (without being reimbursed for the extra tank of gas it costs me each week).  And I get paid less than minimum wage hourly, because I like the opportunity to write and do graphic design work while the baby naps.

    Be grateful, because when I move next month, you'll probably never have it this good again.

  • I don't have anything specific to b!tch about today, I'm just crabby because it's Monday. This weekend flew by way to fast.
  • I'm still pissed at my insurance provider for deciding to stop covering my OBGYN. I was already scheduled to see her to talk about my options for lap surgery (possible endo) and now I have to cancel. On the brightside, it will be good to get a second opinion. I'm just annoyed that I'll probably have to pay for additional exams and consultations.

  • Sister, I know you're trying to be supportive, but it was pretty frustrating that, when I told you we still hadn't successfully gotten pregnant (she knows we've been trying since October, though we started trying in August), you asked if something was wrong, and if we had "seen someone" yet. Not everyone can get KU by accident just because they decided that birth control was too expensive. Wish the year statistic was more widespread. It's not like trying for 7 month (or by her knowledge, 5 months) makes me super unusual.

     (That said, my sister is an awesome mom, and had been with her DH around 5 years and married 1 when she got pregnant, and I'm pretty sure she sort of knew what she was doing when she went off birth control, as I do think she wanted ot get KU. She's overall been very supportive of us TTC, she is just planning on TTC #2 starting this month, and hoped we'd get pregnant first so that I could enjoy making my announcement without her also KU)

  • I would like to thank the sick b!tches at work for kindly sharing their chest cold with me.

    And I'd like to kick dh in the balls. He drank 3 bottles of wine last night. I told him to flucking stop several times, but is friend kept encouraging him. His friend should have had to pull his drunk passed out self out of the shower and clean up the puke everywhere. If dh ever does that to me again, our marriage is in trouble. That was flucking ridiculous. Can you tell I'm mad?

    Today is about to be CD1, being my shortest LP since charting. And I told DH last night, "what no, I've got a week before that starts" making me a lyingliar who lies, and doesn't know her own body.

    My friend had her baby, but I'm working all the wrong shifts to make the two hour drive and go see her this week. Guess I'm waiting until cutiepie is a month old instead of newborn. (or just next week)

    I'm cranky today.

    I'm bitchy at myself right now.  I ate like crap on vacation and then wonder why my jeans are tight. 

    Also, I hate flying and a big storm is coming this week when I'm supposed to fly to a conference.  The timing sucks!  I changed my flight and ate the $150 change fee.  Lovely.

      I think a lot of guys are very similar. When they are sick, they can't do anything else.  Mine acts as though the world is ending. But, when we are sick life goes on. I hope you don't catch it!

  • I have had the most stressful week in a long time and don't see an end anytime soon. Had the bar exam Tues/Wed (stressful in its own), did some organizing Thursday (my closet was a mess), and then Friday my 1 yr old nephew gets sent to the ER and admitted for surgery because of an ear infection gone wrong...poor fella has been in the hospital all weekend, had surgery to put tubes in his ears, had blown IV's, and was almost sent to another hospital because the nurses couldn't find a vein; it was so bad my sister called me in hysterics because they were going to attempt it again and I had to make another quick trip to the hospital to talk her down and help her through the IV poke, which they finally got placed. Poor DH has had kids at our house all weekend while I got to play supermom to my 6 yr old nephew and 1 yr old niece while my sister and her husband were at the hospital. The only good thing to come out of it was while I was comforting my crying niece at one point, DH looked at me and said "wow, you're going to be such a great mom some day." I'm just glad the whole weekend didn't scare him away from ever having children.

  • My FIL visited this weekend and insisted that he needed to give my golden retreiver a haircut.  He was so insistent we eventually relented.  Unfortunately his dog grooming skills are more than a little rusty and my dog now looks like a drunken toddler cut her hair.  Poor thing.  I am embarrased to to take her on a walk because she looks so dumb.

    I would not have let anyone near my dog for a cut no matter how badly they insisted. Grooming gets done on my terms, not someone else's.  Can you take her to a groomer to get it trimmed up and then get a sweater for her if it's to cold?

  • I have a few

    We got a major dump of snow yesterday so the commute to work was stressful.  I really can't understand people who drive ABOVE the speed limit on a day where there are multiple accidents because road conditions are less than stellar. 

    DS cut his hand on a piece of broken glass this morning while I was trying to brush my teeth.  I cried more than he did and felt like such an awful Mom

  • My FIL is coming for a 4 day visit this weekend, and I'm already dreading it.  He's sweet, and I like him, but he's not an easy guest, and DH gets all anxious about wanting to make sure his Dad has a good time and so he ends up being really inconsiderate of me to put his Dad first and it drives me nuts.


    And I have to go to visit my grandma on Saturday with my Mom.  This grandma is needy and nutty and is having memory problems, which she blames on everyone else.  So this weekend will be one where I keep nips in my purse to survive.

    Oh!  And it looks likely that I'll ovulate on Monday or Tuesday, if everything goes according to pattern, so it would have been really nice to have the weekend to ourselves for baby-making.  We might be out this month if I get a positive OPK and DH feels too weird about doing it while his Dad is visiting.
