Best of luck telling the fam @caribbeanmama. I can't believe that is how they reacted I am so sorry. Having been through loss myself I also kept it mostly to myself this time around. Majority of people still don't know. Today will be the first time I get out of the house since Monday. I was getting some serious cabin fever so it should be nice. Not doing anything fun really just stopping by our new house to see what kind of progress the contractors have made, and then visiting my in laws--my daughter hasn't seen her grandma in a few weeks and I know my MIL must be going bananas. Those 2 have a lot of love for each other and I love watching them. Then tonight we will be rushing home and trying to watch as much of the UFC pay per view and Alec Baldwin hosting SNL as we can.
I had to get a new debit card as some YAHOO stole my number. Thank goodness my bank knew that the $250 charge at Walmart was out of the ordinary for me (on that account) because I feel like it could have gotten a lot worse (and I never use that debit card unless it's for work travel).
I just blew up about MIL to DH. Lots of expletives. I mentioned in a convo with her a month back that I was going to try to buy things used as much as possible including the breastfeed pump (before I knew insurance covered it). She made a face and said don't do that. That's dirty. I'll just buy you a new one instead. I ignored her because I wasn't asking for permission. MIL recently returned from visiting SIL and grandkids. MIL texted me saying she brought back SIL's medical grade hospital breast pump for me but SIL wants it back if she has a third kid. And that SIL says I shouldn't reuse over the counter pumps because of air suction problems. I lost it. I went to DH and just started flipping out that I don't need anyone's effing blessing or permission. And I certainly wasn't asking for SIL's opinion or permission either. If I want people's input I will ask for it. Don't try to make my decisions for me.
As as far as the breast pump itself, I've done the research as well. And like I said, I made that comment to MIL before I knew my insurance covered it so it's moot now.
