TW Tuesday

Hormones, lack of sleep, and general irritability as we get close to the end probably means we have quite a few TWs in our days. Let's hear about them!

    @schef070911 how frustrating! And especially that they took so long. Clearly they don't want or need your money that badly

  • @Virginialeigh They're having you do an ultrasound every week just because of AMA? I'd be annoyed too esp since it's out of pocket for you!

    @mylittleirvz actually crock pot soup is brilliant. Thank you for that. I think I know what I'll make but if you want to share the taco one that sounds pretty good too. Thanks!

  • @HGRich - here's the recipe I use! So easy and you can let it cook longer/shorter as you have the time. It basically just needs to be in there to heat but the longer you cook the better the flavors. 
    Sorry everyone for posting the recipe in the thread, can't ever figure out how to get links to work correctly!!

    • 1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning Mix {1 oz.}
    • 1 packet Taco Seasoning Mix {1 oz.} or 3 tbsp. Homemade Taco Seasoning
    • 1.5 tsp. Onion Powder
    • ½ tsp. Salt
    • For Garnish: Fritos, Sour Cream, Shredded Cheddar and chopped Green Onions!

  • @KirstinH88, it is so yummy especially adding some sour cream and fritos! It seriously is one of the easiest "dump it in" and forget it recipes and I make it a lot in the winter. Plus just that single recipe makes a pretty full crockpot so for our smaller family we get several meals out of it.

  • @mylittleirvz I have a fairly similar (not really) chili recipe that I absolutely LOVE! Its a bit on the spicy side, so the kids don't really love it, but it also can feed us for several days. Mmmm....We have beautiful weather here lately (definitely not soup or chili weather) but I might just have to throw it in the crockpot and enjoy!

    My TW today is the woman in church whose kids were running around so she looked at me and said, "Are you ready for this?" Ugh. She also went on about how small I am.

    That's so rude! Man the things people will say to pregnant women still amaze me. It's like being pregnant gives them the green light to remove their filter... I'm sorry you had to deal with that at church.

    I could not agree more @catem07. This one sucks because it's a good friend that I talk to nearly every day. I finally gave in and bought the product to support her... big mistake on my part clearly.

  • @BabyBlake042017 I second all of that!

  • @SnarkasaurusRex Ugh I am so sorry your MOM is being this way.  It angers me and breaks my heart for you.  Like you said, you can deal with people not being supportive...but this is just downright wrong.  I don't blame you for giving her the silent treatment right now.

  • @SnarkasaurusRex sorry your mom is being such a TW. My mom and I have similar issues so I feel your pain. She always needs to be the center of attention and have her way. It's easy to deal with normally but when I was getting married or when I'm pregnant it gets super annoying because even though I'm uncomfortable being the center of attention those are the times I should be. When I went wedding dress shopping she "lost" $1500 in cash and made everyone look for it instead of helping me. Surprise surprise she "found" it when she got home. She didn't even show up to my first baby shower, she had a church thing.

  • @Blueberry85 I would have been livid about that too.  Sorry that happened :(

    @SnarkasaurusRex ; It's one thing if she's expressing how much she's going to miss you/your kiddos but it's COMPLETELY another if she chooses to express those feelings by trying to make you feel like you can't parent two children by yourself.  That's just manipulative and wrong.  I'm sorry you have to go through that...

  • @rachelmiller03 and @schef070911 I appreciate the commiserations! Obviously we'd rather do what's needed (and pay the extra when we must) to make sure babe is healthy, but this final bill was just the crap icing on the shit cake that was my experience with my former midwives. It's a shame, because I really liked them when I was pregnant with DD, but they've definitely gone downhill in the past 3 years. Ah well. Not relevant now since we've moved, and I love my new midwives.
