  • @stassischroeder That’s so sweet! My son loves the zoo too, and it’s so fun! We’re hoping to take him to the state fair this weekend for the first time. 

    @LittleSEZ That’s awesome! 

    AFM, I’ve been catching up here, since I  wasn’t around since Thursday. I had a huge project at work Thursday. It went well, but then Friday morning I was so sleep deprived and stressed that I had a mental breakdown at work and cried in front of my new boss and new coworker and I was super embarrassed. We’re still dealing with the ILs, and I’m super antsy about my ultrasound Wednesday, so hoping for the best!

  • @stassischroeder oo this makes me want to take DS to the zoo. I think I’ll wait until it’s a little cooler outside though. 

    Our new neighbors are chopping down tons of trees and it is making me ragey.

  • @LittleSEZ ha, yeah not many people can whip out EDDs that quickly!

    @MrsVP614 Ugh, I'm glad your project went well, but DAMN you need a break! Hopefully a good u/s on Wednesday will give you a little boost  <3

    @silverhope don't get me wrong, there were plenty of times that he just wanted to climb up and down grassy hills and curbs instead of looking at the animals, but it was SO COOL to watch him see some of the animals for the first time. Why are your neighbors cutting down trees?

  • @stassischroeder I’m guessing bc they hate mother nature? I don’t know. The guy moving met DH and mentioned they were redoing a bathroom and the kitchen before they moved in. He didn’t mention chopping down trees. :angry:

  • @silverhope LOLOLOL at "bc they hate mother nature?" I don't understand people who don't like trees, either. Maybe some are at risk of falling on the house? Or roots are invading the pipes and foundation? Or maybe he's using the wood to redo said kitchen and bathroom  :D  Or maybe he's just a dick.

  • @keeksie84 espresso milkshake?! That sounds incredible. H made chocolate chip cookies and then we bought ice cream and made ice cream sandwiches. They are SO GOOD. He brought them to work and I’m glad they’re not sitting around here or I would eat them all.

  • @EmilyLove25 I agree our board is pretty dead, but I suspect it'll pick up. It also tends to weed out the people who are using us as google instead of actually building relationships.
    @keeksie84 Yay for that milkshake! Sounds awesome!

    @kantobean - Homemade chocolate chip cookies are the best.

  • @kantobean Yay for a workout!

    @keeksie84 I definitely want to check out Schitt’s Creek. I also have had MANY thoughts of making a vegan milkshake but haven’t actually done it yet. If I was home today, I think today might be the day! Your success is my inspiration (also I wish the picture was still there lol lol). Also YAY for walking, DD!

    @laurenm2123 Yay! I feel like I’m starting to feel a little better overall too. The nausea is more isolated to specific times as opposed to being around all day. Of course this just means I’ll eat all the things.

    @kagesstarshroom Just remember that nausea is a sign of a healthy pregnancy! Also that is such a bummer that screens are bothering you given your PhD work. I hope it doesn’t impact it!  

    @MrsVP614 So true. You can tell I mention it only when I am bored at work hahaha!

    @wolfsub2020 Welcome!

    @varmimama I was you the last few weeks. Normally love sweets, but they definitely have not sounded as good lately, but for some reason a milkshake does… Hope you get your sweet tooth back in the second tri!

  • @varimama so much food I bought pre-pregnancy went to waste (or wasn’t eaten by me) last pregnancy. Even frozen foods. I had vegetarian “crab” cakes that I used to love and I had bought a bunch, then got nausea, then they were an aversion.

  • @emilylove25 Ugh yes the screens thing is a problem--the excessive nausea thing is a problem all around, though, for every aspect of life, but I am TRULY hoping once school starts, having somewhere to be and something to do will help? But I'm not sure since... I HAVE things to do and they are just stagnate. Being in front of screens pretty quickly gives me seasickness. (Like, literally, when I am typing, I look away mid-type bc the motion of the words appearing on the screen gives me nausea.) Not the TV, but both my phone and the computer--typing and scrolling = really hard. I'm just glad my dissertation is TRULY almost finished and that I worked so hard on it for most of the summer. When I feel alright, the last part I have to finish I think I can copy and paste a bunch of paragraphs from my prospectus to round it out and then hopefully it's minor edits OR by the time I get edits back this stage has passed. 

    @varimama I don't find that I'm leaning towards sweet or savory alone, I am more of a combination, though I haven't been loving chocolate which I normally love and I HAVE been eating a ton of popsicles, which normally aren't my thing.

    Yesterday, I was craving water ice--specifically, a gelati with root beer water ice and chocolate soft serve, my fave,-- so I looked up where the closest Rita's to me is--and THERE IS ONE IN LOUISIANA, an hour away!!!! I really thought the nearest would have to be in FL, since I know there are a few scattered among the south and since FL is basically old, hot NJ, so I am SO happily surprised there's one so close. We are so going. At some point.

    Can anyone recommend a book for partners? DH doesn't get why I'm tired and hungry so early in pregnancy. He is soooo accommodating to me, but looking for some reading material to help him understand a bit.

    @kagesstarshroom - I dreamed about driving by a Rita's, probably because of your comment. I think I've had it twice in my life, but definitely not craving it. I am hoping to stop by Krispy Kreme's after my appointment, and am hoping I'll still want one when we get there.

  • @lusineg I don't have a book recc--or any actual recc--but I REMEMBER someone at some point recommending a podcast for dads to be? This is almost not helpful at all lol, but hope someone might chime in. LOL at that dream!

    @kantobean Hope all goes well!

  • @kantobean Glad to hear it went well! I know the feeling, with parents/ILs telling everyone and being all up in our biz. DH has been dying to tell, especially with MIL staying with us. But I want everyone to find out together next weekend.

  • @kantobean I too am glad to hear they took the news well! 

    I myself really only have very few people to tell. My MIL I did tell already and she is super thrilled as she thought we would never have kids and she only currently has one grandson. My Mother passed away four years ago this month and my Dad well I am really not looking forward to telling him or my brothers. I know the first thing my Dad says will be, "aren't you too old"? When I told him about a year ago that I have been wanting a kid he just says, "you?". I've been trying to think of a good comeback if he says something rude.

  • @varimama Your mom's response... wtf?! Way to make it about her.
    @wolfcub2020 Hopefully your dad will give you a better reaction than you expect. Why can't people just say, "Congrats, I'm happy for you."

  • Well, hi, me again. I meant to say this earlier! I bought the pregnancy journal "40ish Weeks" and I LOVE it. I like it SO much more than the ones I used with DD and DS. It is so, so simple and straight forward! You basically have a page for notes each week and a FEW more directed parts re: questions for the doctor etc. But it's compact and great!

  • @EmilyLove25 I think most BMBs have had an NIPT thread, so feel free to start one! I will probably have blood drawn for this tomorrow, so I'll join you there shortly  :)

    @wolfcub2020 @varimama @kantobean I'm ragey reading your parents/IL's responses!!! WTF is wrong with people! @kantobean I'm glad it went well last night, and FWIW, I'm a total curmudgeon too. I'm dreading telling MIL because she's a "should-er." i.e. likes to go on and on about what DH and I should do ...
