Re: FFFC

  • I really hope this baby comes Memorial Day weekend. For a whole variety of reasons but I won't do anything crazy to rush him out if he's not ready.

  • I'm sick of food. I'm at the point where I have to force myself to eat. I didn't eat lunch until 3pm yesterday because I just couldn't deal with it. I got the same way when I was pregnant with Jack. Eating just makes me feel gross by the end.

    I told DH yesterday that all I want for Mothers Day is the new Sookie Stackhouse book and to be left alone for 4 hours so I can read it. Yep, Mother of the Year right here.

  • Oh, DH keeps hinting and asking "what about this for your mother's day gift" and I'm purposely not giving him any ideas. We've been married 5 years man, you've surprised me with good stuff before, I know you can do this.

    We've been married for 3 years, together for 5 and H just asked me what I wanted from Paris for my birthday. He's only bought me two crappy gifts ever so I have faith he can figure it out.

    I'm really having a hard time at work. Long, busy shifts are killing my hips and back. I get BH pretty bad after them too. But I hate being a bother and worry that maybe I'm overreacting. Pregnancy is hard and I should just suck it up, right?
    So I'm not asking for an easier schedule even though I really feel like I need it.
    I guess my confession is I'm a wimp and too worried about what my coworkers would think of me.

    I cried while trying to put together our new pack n play last night. Full blown ugly cry. Then I walked around the house, cried some more, and felt bad about myself when I caught a glimpse of my puffy red face in the mirror which triggered more crying. I could have totally sucked it up and managed to put the rest of it together, but it's currently in about 20 pieces on our living room floor. If it's not put together when I get home from work today, I might have a repeat crying session.

    I would have cried too. There's a reason DH has put everything together. I get frustrated too easily. *hugs*

    Oh, I'm so sorry! I had a meltdown when I tried to put together the pack n play too.  I kept thinking 'if I can't do this, how can I be allowed to have a kid!' I ended up having to call my SIL and have her walk me through it over the phone.

    I think he's just hung up on it being a "new" holiday because we've never exchanged gifts for it before and he wants it to be perfect. Silly man.

    Almost none of DH's family is coming to my shower and I pretty upset about it.  We have made it really clear that we don't want gifts, we just want to celebrate with family and friends but they can't seem to take 2 hours out of their not so busy schedule to come eat brunch.  They expect us to drop everything for all the last minute family gatherings and we always do.

    I know this makes me a selfish brat but it's really hard for me. I live in the Midwest and almost all of my family lives in California so when big events come up it's always a little bittersweet for me because I don't have my family around to celebrate with.

    My husband always waits till the last minute and usually ends taking me to buy whatever I want. I love surprises and would love for him to put some thought into actually picking something out for me. Doesn't need to be anything fancy. Just surprise me.

     

  • DH has a bad cold and while I do feel bad for him I mostly want him to stay the fluck away from me because I really don't want it. I totally think pregnant colds trump man colds.

  • I hope LO doesn't come until July.

    I've lived off junk food this week.

    I drink at least 3 cans of pop a day.

    I see nothing wrong with wanting to be left alone to read the last Sookie book.

    Pretty much the same thing happened to me for my shower and me and DH were pretty ticked about it for awhile. We ended up having a great shower anyways. Hope you have a great one too!

    I'm doing the my eyes to your eyes finger point right now.

    Continuing with this theme, I'm fricking uncomfortable. Yes, we all are. But I feel worse right now then I did at 39 weeks with Lucy. I don't think it is physically possible for me to be pregnant another 5 or more weeks. I don't want a torpedo belly filled with crazy stretch marks, I don't want a ripped up vag from trying to deliver a potentially 11 lb baby, and I sure don't want my guy to have a birth injury from getting stuck on the way out.

    Sighhhh. I had so much confidence in my body delivering Lucy vaginally and med free. I really want to feel that way now because it is still so very important to me. But I've got a ton of negative thoughts about how this delivery will go. I hope I'm proved royally wrong come D day.

  • For most of this pregnancy I've been more excited to start maternity leave (I'll be off for a year) than for the actual baby. And I don't even hate my work that much. I am an awful person.

    I hear you. While it's not expected, it did hurt my feelings when my MIL told me she didn't know why she was expected to come to my shower at my side of the family. I told her its never expected, but that I wanted her to know she was always welcome at anything my family holds but the choice was hers.

    She did this with our wedding shower, but she actually came. She didn't bring a gift, which was fine, but I just liked having her love and support there.


    Now my FFFC?

    I feel like I got cheated in the inlaw process. Not shower related. I know they love us, but I get jealous when I see how good my parents are to my SIL, really treating her like a daughter and I feel like my IL's will always look at me as the mouthy [FIL has called me this before to H because I actually talk and everyone in his family just walks on eggshells when he's talking] DIL who sits on her fat ss at home while their angel son works so hard to give me everything I want.

    Which is true, minus their assumptions I'm lazy and do nothing. H would do anything to make me happy and I'm grateful every day for it, but I would do the same for him.


    I'm just full of feelings today lol

  • I'm letting DD draw all over the floor with chalk. It will make H flip out when he wakes up but I don't give a rat's asss cause he stayed up all night playing game with a friend and woke me out of the first deep sleep I've has in months to gripe about his insomnia. I have zero sympathy for him having to watch DD all day after almost no sleep. I've done it many times.

    Today is my last day of work and I plan on doing as little as possible. Probably going to spend the day drinking coffee and bumping at my desk!

    I hope DS doesn't show up during my May-mester class or I have to pay back my scholarship money.

    I am over this whole pregnancy thing. I'm tired of gaining weight, being too big and not being able to do much.

    Lastly, I have been indulging in junk food lately because that is all that sounds good right now.

    Yeah, there is no way I would want to go over a whole month. Just want to go like 5 days. SO is going to be across the country the whole month of June and I want him to be with me when LO decides to make her appearance.

    I have the opposite problem. DH basiclly demanded that LO NOT show up on his birthday (June 8, I am due June 30) because he wants June 8 all to himself FOREVER.

    Seriously dude, the kid is going to show up when he wants to show up GET OVER IT!

    Lol. DH's birthday is July 8. His mom put it in his head b/c she was due in June and went 3 weeks over due. We were discussing how if he came in May he'd have emerald as a birthstone not pearl. DH said "No, he'll have ruby." No, no he will not.

  • I haven't washed any of the baby stuff yet.  And when I do I am going to use regular detergent.  I think that the specialized baby detergent is just a way to get people to spend more money on stuff they dont really need.

    My MIL introduces SIL as her "daughter", and me as her DIL. I mean SIL does live in the same town as MIL, but it still stings. She also calls me the wrong name a lot.

    We're moving in two weeks. WheneverI start packing, I get about an hour in and exhaust myself. At that point I usually just go lay on the couch.

    I'm sick of wearing the same clothes week in and week out.

    I have two...

    1. I registered for the Rock N Play Sleeper and it went on sale, so I bought it, then I added the more expensive Rock N Play Sleeper, and someone bought it, and I plan on taking it back and using that money towards other stuff.

    2. As much as I do not under any circumstance want an intervention, I am secretly hoping my child is breech so I can schedule a C a week in advance, just so I don't have to deal with him going over his due date.  I really DONT want a C though, but I am totally wishing he will just get here early.
