FFFC - Flame-free Friday Confessions

edited April 2016 in December 2016 Moms
This thread is your place to come clean on things (PG related or not) that would normally get you side-eyed.  I checked the thread and it looks like we still need a volunteer to start this on a weekly basis.  I figured I'd start today and someone can take over next week.

    I'm still having my one cup of coffee in the morning.. :|  I don't know how you ladies feel on cutting caffeine completely, but I make sure my one cup is all I have.

    lookhuman  coffee bye felicia lookhuman

    Me, too. I have ADD and it is damn hard to function without stimulants. I figure if my body is used to 3+ cups per day plus adderall, one cup of coffee is probably going to have even less of an impact on my body than most people. 

    TMI FFFC: I'm a little constipated and thrilled about it because that never happened the last time so I'm taking it as a good sign!

    @Shwee25 Everything I have found both last preg. and this one say up to 200 mg is pretty safe. So that means I can have a 1L Dr. Pepper everyday if I want. IDK what the ratio is in coffee, but I wouldn't be terribly worried unless you are having a super large cup/chocolate/other caffein on top. 

    My FFFC is that I am already planning on faking nausea tonight so I can get a pulled pork salad from a local grill.

    I've read it's an average of 145 mg/8 oz of drip coffee.  I have a cup every morning and don't drink the full thing.  I'm a coffee LOVER so this is hard.  I'm going to cut back to zero within the next week due to previous BP issues.  

    I'm blaming my gas on my dog/DS.

    I gave up coffee so I've been drinking decaf.  No it doesn't do anything for me but I like the taste and it's the only way to stop myself from drinking regular coffee.  One cup per day of regular coffee is fine I think, I'm just not sure I can stick to that.  So decaf it is.

    @DumbledoresArmy just reminded me of a 2nd Confession. I am planning on using my prep to make a cute announcement for my 8th grade students on Monday. I can't wait, and with having to leave class every hour to pee they might figure it out.

    @PrettyPalomino - I almost posted something similar.  We will not have sex the remainder of the PG.  H gets really freaked out and just can't.  It's totally mental and we lived through a prior PG that way, I guess we can do it again.  I just hate having it off the table even if I don't feel like it often when I'm KU.

    I pretended to be sick to get off work early today. In my defense, I don't feel the super best but I wouldn't tell anyone specifically why.

    Second confession, I am no where near ready to tell people I'm pregnant because I feel like I will be judged. My DD is about to turn 1 and a half and I'm afraid people will think it's too soon

    @Kate08Young @ashcakes921 my brother is almost exactly 2 years older than me (our bdays and just 4 days apart) and I loved being close in age. We are still really close. Go ahead and let people judge! The closeness in age will be great for your kids.

    DH and I haven't had sex either since the BFP. Maybe it'll be more appealing when there's less cramping.

    I'm also having 1 cup of coffee in the morning and I don't plan to stop.

    My FFFC is I forgot breakfast at home this morning so I had chocolate chip cookies instead.

    Even worse confession - I drink up to 2 cups daily. I gave up coffee for one week and started falling aslepp at 7pm when I got home from work and didn't do a lick of chores. I drink half a cup in the morning, half mid afternoon and if I have things to do when I get home I drink another half cup at home. If I don't have anything to do I just try to get as much as i can done, shower, and then I'm in bed by 8:30/9.

    My doc says two cups of coffee a day is fine. I started drinking decaf when we started trying last April, so I've adjusted, but it was so hard!

    My confession: 
    One of my classroom volunteers brought in chips ahoy as a treat for her reading group. A family sized bag for 7 kids. I gave them two each and have proceeded to eat the rest of it, day-by-day, all on my own. I need to replace it before she asks about it. I just need that chocolate fix once the kids hit the road for the day!

    eta: just saw that mobile wants me drinkin and tryin.  I don't type like that.

    @itsmehere1212 not sure why, but this is the funniest thing to me. :)
    @ashcakes921, our DSs are 21 months apart, and they are starting to become really great friends - our experience having kids close together has been a great one so far.

    My FFFC is that I almost always use the maximum amount of time (2 hours) allowed by our gym's childcare service while I "workout."  I figure that it's a win/win for all of us; socialization for the kiddos that they otherwise wouldn't have (I'm a SAHM) while I get to stay in shape zoning out on HGTV on the elliptical.  I'm not sure the childcare service workers feel the same way about it.

    DS is 10 months next week. This baby wasn't planned at all and I feel like people will be all over judging us. I was so careful between my first two, and kept asking my husband to get the snip because I was done have kids and he kept putting it off. I think he secretly wanted another baby but was scared to admit it lol. I know everyone is going to give us crap, even if they are happy for us. 

    My FFFC is that I just drank my first little bit of Coke since DS was 3 days old because my stomach is upset and it helps a lot.

    My FFFC: I have zero intentions of calling my OB until the end of the month. With DD2 I was a neurotic mess since she was post my MMC. It only made me more of a mess to see her at 7 weeks knowing I lost my previous bean closer to 8.5 and never knew until my next appointment. They're isn't much that can be done if things start going south, and quit frankly I dont like the anxiously of waiting for my appointment. I know if I call at the end of the month and tell them I'm pregnant and have yet to have a period due to BF they will get me in ASAP. Until then I'll hope and pray for a strong growing bean.

    That's really funny because I do a similar thing. On Wednesday nights my synagogue has a class that goes over the various holidays and studies them in depth. Most of it I already know, but there is free childcare so I go to have an hour or two to sit in the back and crochet. To be fair, I do participate and learn some things every now and then, but my biggest drive is having a free babysitter. 

    Also...I may or may not (okay, I totally did) put on a movie so my toddler would sit on the couch and not get himself into trouble while I took a nap on the other side. I started to feel really bad about this (listening the echos of younger and child-free know it all me complaining about parents who use TV as babysitters), but he's getting a sibling out of the deal so I'm over it.

    I'm also drinking my morning coffee - I can't NOT do it AND be an elementary school teacher.  Nope.

    My FFFC is I've already told way more people that I'm pregnant than I should have. I am horrible at keeping a secret and went out bowling with friends - who of coursed asked why I wasn't drinking a beer.  They figured it out simply by the look on my face.
    I'm in a similar boat and I'm glad I'm not the only one!

    My FFFC is that I am telling my sister we are expecting tonight since she lives out of state and I really want to tell her in person! We are also telling my parents tomorrow since we live so close and I can't keep this secret any longer!!

    My HOA lady finally replied to my emails saying that we are attempting to have our satellite dish moved, but 3 technicians still can't find a place where the signal would be uninterrupted. 

    HOA lady replied "do you have a copy of the documents? There seems to be confusion regarding location. I will come by the property and look for a location later today."

    I wrote in an email "Yes I do have a copy of the documents, here it is attached. It does not say this or this that you claim it does. With all due respect, if the satellite company is having difficulty finding a location where the signal is uninterrupted, I cannot allow you to know any better."

    And then I deleted it.

    I wish I didn't delete it. She deserved that email.
