    Could people not constantly wreck on the highway I use to get to work every morning?! I was almost half an hour late because someone wasn't paying attention to the feckin' person in front of them.

    WTF pregnancy dreams. Dreamt I gave birth with just my mom there then rushed off leaving poor baby girl at the hospital without a 2nd thought to get to a breastfeeding class (?!) and fight with my mum about the fact that my car seat hadn't arrived yet.  

    Even my subconscious knows I'm nowhere near prepared... Stay in there baby girl! 9 weeks til DH can be there for the birth.

    @kgrgreen iiiiiick. This happened to me yesterday. The nice but creepy old substitute teacher in the next room over adores me and thinks we're bros. He said "not much longer, little mama!" and patted my stomach. My assistant was standing with me and the look on her face was pure gold. If I had any F's left to give I probably would have...but I'm out at this point.

    @YeezusButters I have been having the same problem, almost daily.  There are more accidents on the high way now that it's nice out then we did all winter (in Michigan).  It's ridiculous.  Learn to drive people!!

    @kgrgreen ugh I've sworn to punch the first complete stranger who touches my stomach in the face.  At this point I'm almost gunning for this day. I just had my first complete stranger tell me I looked like I could give birth anytime now (AFTER I told her I had 2 months left), and I rather wish I had an excuse to punch her in the face!

    @ktomorrow I really wish I knew what it was about pregnant women that makes complete strangers suddenly think it's acceptable to touch another person or make personal comments. I'm so sorry that you had to deal with that and props to you for staying calm. I don't know if I would have been able to do the same.

    Finally recovering from my cold... Its just me and one other co-worker here in the office today. Just got a call from him saying he will be in by 10am (he was supposed to be here at 8:30). Why is he going to be late? He isn't feeling good and is coming down with a cold. WTF!? Stay away from me! :(

    WTF road construction?? They just started doing our street and apparently it's a 5 month long project. It's already a hassle to go anywhere and they've barely even started.

    @pootsdragon that is freaking hilarious!  I, sadly, can sympathize with you.  My Boston X is a little shit, very sweet but a shit.  She frequently potties in her kennel when we aren't home, even though she has plenty of opportunity before we leave for work and when we're home (they have a dog door to come and go as they please).  She is just an asshole.  Oh and she digs out on a regular basis just because.

    @stellaluna14  lol! I am surprised she didn't add "or else!" at the end of that text.

    I get that from my mom all the time.  She calls me crying about her own life and trying to guilt me into coming over more (she's a heavy drinker so I don't venture over very much)  During the duration of my pregnancy, she has asked me once how the baby was, chastised me for having a boy instead of a girl, and hasn't mentioned my pregnancy since 20 weeks.

    Just found out that the policy changed for FMLA and I only get 2 weeks paid and the rest of my leave (which might not even last 12 weeks because who can afford to??) is half pay. AWESOME.

    @setosh you should be able to get shirt term disability, which is 60% of your pay that is not taxed.

    @setosh I don't think maternity leave where I work is paid at all. Only pay I am getting is from saved up pto and vacation time. You could try asking about a work from home option like I did. It might not add much, but a couple extra hours here and there might help.

    For the short term disability thing, if its anything like my job, you have to be paying into it for at least a year for them to pay out for anything. Its also an optional thing here so of course, silly me, I did not sign up for it. (LO was a bit of a surprise :) ). I have however heard that in some states it is automatically deducted, in which case get in contact with them asap because I have been told maternity leave IS covered by them.

    @MamaBish @samantha1206My mom is the same way, she calls just to talk about what's going on in her life (her job, friends, etc.) and no mention of anything going on in my life and only brings up the pregnancy to try to bring me down with comments like I hope you are not getting too fat. Just be with your little one, she is adorable!

    This should have been for yesterday due to the twatwaffle involved, but I was too busy strapped to a fetal monitor and then trying to nap away the stress, so WTF is up with me getting rear ended for the second time in three weeks yesterday? I am seriously starting to feel like I have a target on my back (or bumper). This girl was clearly not paying a bit of attention, because traffic was moving slowly and I was able to come to a complete stop a good 5 or more seconds before she hit me. Almost three weeks to the day after I got rear ended by someone else. Both times on my way to work, both times involving a lengthy process to get the police report filed followed by a hospital visit where I had to be monitored 6 hours post-accident. Thank god both times baby and I were fine, but these occurrences are giving me anxiety about driving, especially because I have to take the two busiest, shittiest highways in Orlando to get to work. My best solution at this point is to try to leave super early for work to avoid the traffic and hope to actually make it to my job in one piece.

    @lizhurt glad you and baby are ok.  That is some serious bad luck happening twice so close together.
