  • @wagnerw Fx that you find something soon! Would you be moving to a city that has a ton of schools? Or is it more of a rural setting? Do you know anyone in that city/town that could possibly give you some inside info on schools that are hiring?

  • @wagnerw good luck and take care of yourself! Those are a lot of life changing triggers that could make you at risk for PPD. Make sure you're continuing to talk about your concerns and try not to stress/internalize. When it gets too much, meditation, prayer, ice cream and puppies/kittens until you can add baby snuggles ;-)

    @mylittleirvz ha, mine does the same. I flew off the couch at 3:30 this morning when I realized the cat was locked in the nursery (thanks to DH) and he thought I was jumping out of pain/contractions. Every time I call him it's "are you in labor yet?"  No, unfortunately.

  • So, you know how trying on swimsuits is pretty much the worst thing ever? Today I discovered there is something much, much worse... trying on swimsuits while 9 months pregnant. Yep. I need a swimsuit for my day at the spa on Thursday. I am NOT missing out on the awesome sounding cleansing bath and numerous pools because all the swimsuits I own fit me about 40 pounds ago. So, I went hoping to find one that wouldn't look SUPER ridiculous right now, but would also work on my postpartum body this summer. Miracle of miracles, I think I found one that fits the bills perfectly and it makes my current boobs look awesome, if I do say so. But, the 360 mirrors and the trial and error of finding one to fit over my back fat was pretty degrading. Holy cow... I can't believe this is my body right now.

  • @HGRich I'm slightly jealous of your dream. I haven't had any labor dreams, or really even any dreams about baby. With DS, I had so many dreams about him. It was nice to see what he would look like, etc (even if it wasn't real life in the end). I do feel super connected to my pregnancy and to Samuel, but I wish that I would dream about him more.

  • @SnarkasaurusRex I'm with you. Tried fresh ginger beer the last few days. Tonight is eggplant for dinner. Taking the rest to work for lunch tomorrow and following it up with pineapple. Good luck! Maybe we should set up a wives' tale testing board?

  • DH usually gets up at 5:00am for work. He has been creeping up on me over the couch and scares the heck out of me. I told him next time just call out my name from a distance. Well, last night he did, I jumped out of the couch to get ready to go in to the bedroom ( we co-sleep with DS). I checked my phone and realize is only 4:00am, DH says he going back to bed. I'm like wtf you wake me up for? Well it's pouring rain outside......AND??? I don't get it!

  • @McFarKane I've heard dogs have a 6th sense for this kind of thing. I think my pup is clueless though.  :D :D

    NBR Random: Every year for our anniversary, I buy DH a gift that relates to the "traditional" gift giving list. So year 1 was paper and I had a song lyric from "our song" printed out and put in a frame. Year 2 is cotton, so I bought him new tshirts and towels. And year 3 was leather, so I bought him new belts and I believe a wallet. Well, now we are approaching year 4 (in May) and I'm really struggling with this year's "traditional" gift of fruit/flowers. Really?!?! What can I buy a MAN with fruit/flowers that he would half way enjoy? My only idea is one of those fruit bouquets, but that's kind of lame, right?! 

    Any suggestions?

    @KirstinH88 We do the traditional stuff too. Does he like beer? How about a make your own beer kit? Hops and barley are plants...?
