Re: who wants to be unpopular today?

  • My iron levels keep dropping so I've been referred to a hematologist for either a blood transfusion or iron infusions. I'm huge and I'm getting more stretch marks. Today marks the big day i graduate from maternal fetal medicine.

    What makes me unpopular....I've had so many complications, false labor, ect that i just want this baby out of me. The longer she's in the better but I'm feeling at this point like she may be better out...I'm not dr though and she's happy as a can be in there

  • I HATE Dr. Oz.  I think he is a quack.  If you follow all of his advice you would end up taking hunderds of supplements daily.

    He's got millions of miracle weight loss things. This coffee if you drink 15 cups a day you'll loose weight, this bean eat 30 servings a day and you'll loose 5 lbs....really? REALLY!?

    although I'm super happy for all the outside babies, i'm jealous...

    i know little one needs to cook as long as she needs to, but i would be so happy if I had a baby in the next week....this waiting/not knowing is driving me bonkers


    THIS!!! I'm 38 weeks today and I am just so done. I woke up this morning with a full body ache, new to me. I told my 2.5 year old we're going to hang out today and get to watch his favorite shows. I don't even care how lazy that is. I'm exhausted and so ready for this baby to be here.

  • I had hospital visitors with DS and I'm excited to have them with this LO.

    I agree with this. I enjoyed the company and found it a welcome break in the day.

    I eye-roll anything my mom says she heard from Dr Oz. I think it's stupid when people get their medical advice from some idiot TV doctor.
    I'm waiting for something to come out to show that he's not a real MD, or had a billion med mal lawsuits, etc. He IS a quack!

  • Apparently Im unpopular with my mother for trying to make any sort of plan for them to take our dog during labor, who I want allowed to visit, planning ahead for anything involving labor and afterwards. I guess she just thinks we should wing everything. I have been your child for almost 25 years, you should know by now that I am controlling and don't generally just wing major life events. Hubby is also unpopular with her because he says he wants to stay at the hospital with me the entire stay instead of going back and forth between home, which is totally his prerogative, we only live 15 min. from the hospital, but he can do what he wants.

    I like to plan ahead for possible scenarios to be prepared!

    Sorry for the rant.

    This may or may not make me unpopular, but I am fuming that Congress gets 5 weeks paid vacation every summer, yet they can't manage to make paid maternity leave a thing....
    ditto....yet they are the lowest functioning congress in history!!! passing the fewest number of bills and getting ZIP accomplished.   They some how forgot it's their job to GOVERN and quit politic-ing/campaigning once they get elected.
    Instead of govern; I would say that Congress was put into place to represent the people that elected them there; not to push their own ideas/policies. Only way to get those a**clowns out is to vote them out, which gets harder and harder with ill informed voters and voter fraud. Everyone knows it happens. Nobody wants to do anything about it b/c they benefit so much from it.It can happen via grassroots efforts but you really have to rally people to make a change. Take the district that voted out Eric Cantor for example. Not impossible, but it took ALOT of effort to get there.

  • This may sound mean but some of my family is mad at me because I refuse to have hospital visters but my parents and grandmas and My DH parents. I told them if they just show up I will have security escort them out of the women's and children ward.




    I can kind of understand not wanting visitors but having security escort them out is a touch dramatic. They are excited for the birth of your child and you risk ruining a relationship for the long haul by acting like a diva. Have your husband play defense but to get security involved is ridiculous and over the top.

    eTA: this is a post and run, I'll be back later this afternoon

    I can see both sides of this argument. In my case, I have many pushy, obnoxious relatives who *would* charge in and try to visit if I lived closer than 500 miles away. While they clearly only mean to be exited and want too see the newest member of the family, they do not respect personal space or requests. It would take security to get them out of my room.

    That said, I currently live so far away, the distance is enough discouragement — now that they just left yesterday after their annual visit. :). As much as I'm ready for this baby to be born, I'm glad she waited until they had left, lol!

  • I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to visitors. When i did my labor and delivery class during the tour i noticed a huge entourage of people in the waiting room and I just felt very overwhelmed...i don't want people waiting to rush into the room after baby is born. I also have anxiety over visitors in the postpartum room. I feel like they'll just walk right in and scoop baby out of my hands or I'll be breastfeeding and they see my boobs...

  • I asked FI to take a half day at work today because my meds are coming today and I have a dr app. I don't want to spend hours on end tracking down the package either because ups sucks and rendered one of the pens useless last time because it froze (waste of 2500 dollars)

  • @chase16 same here.

    My SIL on DHs side has had 4 kids and was on every med they make for all of them. Then she had kidney stones a few months ago and spent 4 days in the hospital!

    I'm a FTM and have had kidney stones twice throughout this pregnancy, only using hydrocodone very sparingly as I don't like the idea of using meds during pregnancy. Also have had an ovarian cyst the size of an orange rupture. SIL made it sound like I'm super woman for not being in the hospital because of the pain. Told her I plan to go med-free for L&D and she insists I'll never be able to do it. Well, my mom and sister both did, I managed to suffer through kidney stones and cysts...I think I'm mentally prepared. Don't tell me I can't do it because it makes me want to prove even more that I can!

    I feel this way too. I just want time to hang and recover. I don't want visitors at all at the hospital. And I want a few weeks at home before visitors.
    My dad is such a hypocrite about this stuff.  When my brother and I were born, no one in their families met us for a MONTH.  When my niece was born 2 months ago, my dad was in the waiting room from the minute he got off work and RAN into the room when he found out she was born and held her before my SIL (the mom) did, since she was recovering from her c-section.  

    My parents live 5 minutes from the hospital, but my in laws live 3 hours away in another town.  I'm torn because I don't want people visiting until I've gotten to shower, or at least change and feed the baby and spend time with just my little family; but my in laws need notice so they can come visit.  Part of me doesn't want to tell anyone I'm in labor, but then my in laws can't make plans to come to town.

    I do not like maternity photos.

    Along with this, belly casts creep me out. I do not understand why you want a cast of your pregnant belly. To each her own, I guess.




    I never see anything done with those...they always end up in the trash or in the basement

    I've seen newborn photos of them with the now outside babies in them. Still creepy.

  • My MIL is living with us right now and my mother is smothering me. It's made me not want either in L&D with me.i feel like both are too nosey. I was super annoyed this morning when I woke up and the air conditioning was turned off, I spent half the night in L&D with contractions that didn't change me much and I was really sore, I just wanted to sleep with out sweating my butt off. I've been tight lipped all morning because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings but I've about had enough.

    I don't understand people who don't use their heating and AC.

    Walked in from the hospital and my house was an oven. My parents and ILs had been home all day and no one wanted to turn the air on. Wth?!

    ILs are the worse. They almost refuse to use their AC.

    DH and I agree, if it came between being comfortable in our own home and cable, cable would be gone in a heartbeat. Eating out would go before comfort too. There are so many things that would be cut first.

  • This being my third pregnancy, me and DH discussed a plan for L&D, visitors are permitted until push time or someone upsets me but I've made it pretty clear everyone needs to be out when it's go time. My grandma actually hid in the bathroom when it was push time last time and everyone was booted out and my cousin made a point of being in there as well because I was in pain and pushing and the nurse let her in without my permission. I won't go the security route but my husband will have no problem making my family hate him if he has to. I know it sounds selfish but my family can be too much ( with first labor my brother was bouncing down the hall on a exercise ball with a maxi pad stuck to his head, racing against another visitor, second labor he was flirting with the nurses and had them too distracted to accomplish anything.) although it's funny, it's not the time or place.
  • Re: Visitors at the hospital -- We aren't calling either of our parents until LO is on the outside. His parents live kinda far away, but mine are only a few hours and I know I'm going to need to rest a bit before they come charging in.

    I also don't think I want friends visiting me until I'm at home. H thinks we won't be able to 'keep people away.' Well, I don't care. I want people to visit when I'm in my own home, in my own clothes, recovered, and at least somewhat rested. People can wait.

    I think I'm the only one who doesnt mind going to my EDD. I'm uncomfortable but not as I bad as i remember with my first and I still feel unprepared to be juggling 2 children! I know.once the baby gets here we will find a good balance and routine but I'm still a bit uneasy.

    Ditto!!! This is totally me!!! So done but not ready!!! :) not alone! In good company!!!

    Started TTC in 2006, LOTS of trying, and trying, and 7 rounds of IVF with 13 embryos, 2 perfect little boys and 5 loses....
    All finished with babies, started to make diet changes, Keto, to be MORE for my kids, lost 30 pounds, still going, and 3 months in, I had a natural cycle, and then ovulated... Hubs and I are going to see what happens now... Maybe a natural pregnancy? After everything we have been through? Or just a return to normal hormones? We shall see what the future holds!

  • Omg, on an exercise ball with a maxi pad on his head. This mental image is making me laugh out loud. Totally inappropriate though!
  • Can I be unpopular at work? I'm tired of hearing my name called every two seconds or stuff thrown on my desk making my piles bigger and bigger.

  • I am annoyed by people who pump their stereos loudly when I'm at a light. It scares me and LO.

    I hate it when people put a cigarette out in the car in front of me and flick it outside and then the smell comes in my car.

    I think people putting pictures of themselves breastfeeding on FB is strange. Maybe I'll see this differently later.

    I also wonder why I'm the clumsiest I have ever been when it hurts the most to pick things up.

    confession: I used the electric cart at Walmart. I just can't walk with this sciatica and feeling like LO is going to pop out.
