  • Glad you're ok @caribbeanmama!
    Sorry to hear things are rough at the moment, @mj8215.  Things get so overwhelming and I feel like since being pregnant it's easier to feel helpless or just overly stressed. I hope things calm down soon so you can breathe easier!

  • DH and I have our physicals for our life insurance tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn. We started the process two months ago and it took this long to get to the examination point. The company knows I'm pregnant, but I'm not sure if they are going to take that into account for my weight and cholestoral draw. I've heard pregnancy can cause your cholestorol to be elevated, and mine was on the high end of normal to begin with. Ugh.

    I think that's a new thing. I see them on the bottom corner when I'm on desktop. Must be a way for TB to bring in some money?

  • @oheliza44 We just did that on Tuesday.  They told me they often have pregnant women apply for life insurance and they take that into to account for weight/blood pressure/cholesterol so no worries.  For our bank, there was a place to check off that I was pregnant on the application form.  Hooray for adulting!

    Thanks ladies for the encouragement @SpongeWorthy @oheliza44 @yellow1daisy @BusyZee @manillabar ;

    sorry for all the whining.

    It's just been a long stretch of late shifts ever since getting back from babymoon, and on top of that I'm dealing with some very stressful visa issues (long story but I need to extend my work visa annually (even though husband is citizen, again long aggravating story, has to do with the fact that I came here to work as a doctor and only met him a few years in, so now I'm stuck with this until NIH thinks my research is important enough to grant me a waiver - this is typically reserved for more senior people... hopefully next year) and it's always a huge pain. It sounds trivial compared to things like health issues but the fact that if something gets messed up on the admin side (by admin people at my hospital who make it very clear couldn't care less) I might find myself with an expired work visa a few weeks before the baby comes.... it gives me nightmares. 
    Again this is not new, I've been through this five times before, and it previously ended up working out, so chances are it will this time, but being pregnant and sleep deprived adds a whole other dimension. Andplusalso the current political climate.

    @mj8215 that sounds like a nightmare. I'm sure it will all work out. Try to stay positive. Hugs to you.

    @OperaSingerMommy adulting sucks so bad. This weekend we have the triple whammy of finishing our taxes, health insurance physical, and buying DH new tires. Woot woot! Now excuse me while I chug my very non-alcoholic beverage and hide in the back of my closet. 
    OperaSingerMommymj8215
  • @mj8215 ugh! Sorry you have to go through this - I remember anything visa would make me anxious no matter how many times I had been through the cycle.  Hang in there!

    @oheliza44 yay for adulting and finishing taxes!  I did ours a couple days ago resulting in a massive bill because husband claimed zero on his annual bonus.  May I ask what you are drinking?  Not being able to freely gulp down all the wine is seriously messing with my coping skills!

  • @mj8215 I'm so sorry for the stress. Hopefully the visa situation will get resolved quickly. I can't imagine being worried not only about your research, but also about getting a waiver and having a baby and being able to keep working! That's a lot. (((Hugs)))

  • @mj8215 visas suck.  Sorry for the stress:(

  • I get...messages, I guess...from some websites because I have an ad blocker as part of my anti-virus software for my laptop. They all say that the pop-ups are how they make their money. Sorry, but no. I don't need to win a trip somewhere or see some random video.

    Thank you ladies. I'm not usually this whiny. It's just that the visa stuff serves as some sort of trigger. I'm sure a good therapist could come up with a reasonable explanation.
    Anyways been running around a lot getting documents from person A to person B for signing / uploading, and things seem to be moving forward ... so I'm a bit more optimistic this morning.

  • @Dcwtada I would be so happy with a weeks notice! Our house is on the market for sale. We're also very busy with a renovation project that gets way more of our attention than our current home. But our real estate agent is ALWAYS only telling us the day/evening before a showing.  I waste my time every time getting everything deep cleaned and nothing comes of it. We have a showing today and I don't even curr. The kitchen is clean but I didn't vacuum all upstairs or make sure all laundry was done and put away and get everything dusted like I have every time so far. Ugh I can't wait to be out of here and then she can show this house anytime she freakin wants. 

    @mj8215 totally understand your visa concerns I'd imagine anyone would be scared and moreso when pregnant. I hope the process is quick and smooth from here so it'll be one less thing for you to worry about.

    @yellow1daisy you poor thing, I have been grumbling like a troll with a weeks notice. 





  • @caribbeanmama I moved on from my la croix obsession and now am into Topo Chiccos! I got @SpongeWorthy hooked as well. The lime flavor is my favorite.

    @caribbeanmama I can vouch for Topo Chico!  I couldn't get the lime ones, but I add a little of my own lime and it's delicious!

  • I'm so done today. It's been a pile on day and I get to solo parent this weekend because DH is out of town. 

    The latest in my string of shit things to happen today, my best friend just seriously got in an argument with me because of weight loss. I literally told her that it wasn't a good topic for us to talk about and we probably needed to move on because we obviously weren't saying things that were healing each other and she blew up at me. I hate talking about that topic to start with. I feel like a whale right now because my weight gain has been pretty high and I have weight issues to start with. I haven't been able to work out much and I'm just not feeling good about myself right now. I really didn't need this today.

    Here for you girl.  I know those days are especially rough and there's not much you can do until you pull out of it.  Weight issues are no joke regardless of what end of the spectrum you're on.  (((hugs)))

  • @PurplePoppy424 I am so sorry you're going through this. It's hard enough dealing with our own internal thoughts without having insensitive friends constantly bringing us back to a negative space. 
  • Hugs, @PurplePoppy424. Body image issues are difficult to deal with when you're not pregnant. My husband started teasing me this morning because I tried on so many outfits and I shot him dagger eyes - the pregnant lady wants to feel even a little cute and un-whale-like today.

    We got our crib today!! My husband's co-worker just gave it to us! I'm making him cookies over the weekend as a thank you. He requested oatmeal raisin - sorry, but those are like, the most boring cookie. I'm just baffled that those are the cookies he chose.

  • @PurplePumpernickel I love oatmeal cookies!  Someone told me that oatmeal helps with milk production so when DD was born, I ate massive amounts of oatmeal cookies and told myself it was for the baby ;). I'm sure they mean actual oats not the cookie form but whatever, send them all my way!

  • RIGHT?! I only like raisins if they're cooked in something. A box plain? Gross. Keep those away from me.

    I'm going to double the batch and do half just oatmeal raisin for him, half oatmeal raisin chocolate chip for us, because I'm not baking cookies to not eat any.

  • @Rae1 - I knew there was a reason I liked you. :) Raisins are the devil and should be banned.
