UO Thursday — The Bump
Babies on the Brain

UO Thursday

Post them.  :)

It's because I live here but I don't get the thrill of Disneyland. It's overpriced and crowded on most days. What are tickets now? $90?! or that might be for the park hopper but still.  I know the boys are going to want to go when they get older so we will take them because kids love that place.

MY FOUR ANGELS... M/C 12/26/02 AT 4 WEEKS M/C 12/31/07 AT 12 WEEKS, D & C M/C 12/5/08 AT 9 WEEKS, D & C ***BFP ON 3/26/09*** MARY REYNA BORN AND PASSED AWAY JULY 31ST, 2009 AT 23 WEEKS. GOODBYE SWEET BABY...I WILL MISS YOU FOREVER. ***AFTER 17 WEEKS ON BEDREST*** Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker

Re: UO Thursday

  • I get it. I grew up in the OC and Disneyland was such a disaster.  We'd always go on weekdays though when it wasn't so crowded, much better.

    Mine is probably not unpopular but I'm going to pistol whip the next person who posts a Bachelorette and/or Casey Anthony related status on FB.

    Sadie is not impressed.

    This sounds like a VH1 reality show waiting to happen!

  • I get it. I grew up an hour I'd so away from Disney (fl) and I used to model for them as a child. I was there at least 1-2x a month for a year or two. When we finished modeling/acting, we didn't go the for years. We were disney'd out. I finally went back a few hears ago, and loved it because I had some special memories, but the overcrowded factor was awful!

  • I discovered this prejudice when we decided I would become one until DH finishes school, but apparently I think that SAHWs are worthless. I'm looking forward to doing nothing, but I already hate myself. 

    I can't decide if I actually feel that way, or if I just imagine other people do, but yeah.

  • I don't like when a list of things to do is fired off at a newb. Charting isn't for everyone. TCOYF isn't for everyone. I just think is is kind of rude to just tell them what they should do and hit post. We tell newbs all the time that you wouldn't just walk up to someone in a coffee shop and start talking about TTC. In fairness, if you introduced yourself to someone and they responded with something similar, we'd think that person was kind of a jerk. This isn't directed at Dee, AT ALL, because there are a lot of people here that do it. And that chick yesterday totally over reacted, but I also get why she got defensive.

    I agree. I actually giggle whenever I see people doling out orders to read books & what not. It's one thing when someone asks for resources, but when they just post an intro? Silly.

    Also, I never read TCOYF. Way too effing long for me.

    Agreed.  I never read TCOYF.  I just checked out FF to get the basics of charting.

    It also amuses me when I see someone on TTGP reccommend FF to a newb who already has a FF ticker in her sig.  At least read the post before you respond!

    I agree. If someone asks for advice, that's one thing, but when people just say 'hey I'm just starting ttc, nice to meet you' I think the list is not the appropriate response.

    I did not read TCOYF. I did not chart.  I do not know if egg whites come out of my vagina. Now, homegirl was an epic douche, but I totally agree here.

    ITA.  Not everyone is looking for advice.  Some just want to chat.

    Now if they came here and asked a question about charting, that's another ball game entirely.

  • Tickers that say how long someone has been breastfeeding kind of bug me, especially when they also have the EBF badge and a ticker for their child's age. I know there could be circumstances where the two aren't the same but it just seems annoyingly redundant to me for the most part.

  • 1) I got sucked into the Casey Anthony drama and was overly invested in it. I know most people are rolling their eyes that people care, but I totally DO care. I was just really into the trial aspect of it all.

    Nancy Grace is a hugedouche, though. And there are no porch lights involved.

    2)  I think I hate traveling. It stresses me out and I can't relax. The Vegas trip kinda sealed the deal for me, but I had been suspecting this for a while now.

    I agree. That said, I don't think that chick freaked because of the usual suggestions. She took "this isn't the place for everyone" personally, and would have freaked regardless of the charting advice. I DO think everyone should lurk.

    Also, I hate the coffee shop analogy.

    Fvck it.

    I think most of Caff's GIFs don't work in the thread she posts them in. So I don't find them funny and I wish she'd just make a funny response instead of trying to post a funny GIF.

    While I agree that a lot of your gifs are a little 'meh', I have to say, this was my favorite part of the crazy pants post from yesterday.  It was the perfect kind of random!  I laughed my ass off.

    I feel this way, too.  I do like to go new places, but on a very organized schedule, and I need to feel like I'm informed about the place and that I know what I'm doing.   I sometimes worry that people will think I'm culturally ignorant or something because I'd rather just stay in my own little "neck of the woods" so to speak.  I just really like being home, and I like the city where we live.

    That's one of those things that I don't have a strong opinion on either way.  If I don't want to see boob, I won't watch.  Breastfeeding in public took some kind of ninja dexterity that I just couldn't manage - I'd have been lucky to do it at all, much less modestly.
