    So so cute!!

  • Has anyone seen Jane the Virgin? I started watching it and I'm obsessed. There is a specific episode that reminds me of our BMB episode 17 season 1 if anyone is interested in watching it :)

  • So much snow today! Yay!

    *Small rant coming up here*

    I've been an emotional mess all day. I am scared my anxiety attacks will come back, even though I haven't really had any since April. I worry so much about how DH and I will work things out financially. He doesn't speak Danish so finding a job here won't be that easy and he really wants to pursue his musical and sound engineering career, which would be fine by me if it wasn't for the fact that I am an architecture student with 2 years left of her Master degree and the fact that we are about to have a child that needs to be fed something else than ramen noodles. I feel bad about telling him that he has to give up his lifelong dream after having invested so much time and energy into it, but I honestly don't see another way out besides me quitting my studies and providing for both of us. So I cried for a long time until DH managed to calm me down and promising that we will find a way out of this.

    Ok so I'm pretty late to the comfort party, but I just wanted to send you some love and mental chocolates. I know money is a key to survival, but you and your hubby have 3 most important qualities: love, communication, and support. It won't be easy but nothing is impossible when you guys work together through it all.

    It's ok to cry and it's ok to feel scared. We all get like that, but in those moments it's important to remember that you and your hubby are a power team and will accomplish anything for your family.

    Plus you have us April mamas for love and support too <3

  • Has anyone else been reading about the antibiotic resistant bacteria? Scary shit.

    I read about it a few years ago. Found it interesting and disturbing. Then stopped caring pretty abruptly. We'll figure out some way around germs.

    Yeah well they recently discovered bacteria that are resistant to all antibiotics so it is in the news again. I think it could kill a lot of people.
  • Not sure who it was that posted about the hug lady from Ft Hood a while back, but it passed by my news feed tonight, and there is apparently a go fund me for her medical bills.

    It does sound scary. Like a 1950's horror flick kind of scary. Try not to lose any sleep over it though, it's out of your hands. Scientists will develop some way to combat it soon enough.

    Just read an IFLS article about it. It is scary. I have confidence we will come up with a way to combat it though. It will take time, and there will be a lot of losses before we get there, but we are a pretty resilient species, imo. I'm just trying to remain positive.
  • I am over the moon, DH finally got his visa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IS THIS REAL LIFE? He called me and I was like: "what?? WHAT!???" and he just started screaming and I couldn't believe it!! Thank you everyone for your amazing support and love!! <3

    That was me - I don't remember the numbers but they more than quadrupled their asking amount in the first 2-3 hours of putting it up. They're also renaming the site we process through for deployments after her, which I am SO excited about!

    @elasticheart13 I want to take you out for drinks or cupcakes or something! Finally!

  • Quick little vent... I don't know why, but I have been paranoid about cervical insufficiency lately. Everything has been going well, and this was not even on my radar, but 2 weeks ago one of my colleagues told me that when she was 18 weeks pregnant with her first, she had a regular OB appointment and was feeling well, but mentioned that she had been feeling a little bit of pressure here and there. It was actually not concerning her, but when the doctor examined her, her cervix was open. This led to an emergent cerclage and  hospitalization for the rest of the pregnancy (she delivered a healthy baby).
    She wasn't particularly symptomatic, just had a tiny but of pressure, and we all know we feel little pressures often throughout pregnancy. Then, how am I supposed to know what's normal and what's dangerous???

    Then, one of our dear board members recently lost her baby to cervical incompetence. The story really, really affected me. I felt so bad. Since then, I have not been able to get rid of the "it could be me" thoughts.. Every little feeling I have, worries me.

    I know this is quite uncommon but the thoughts are plaguing me. I just want a calm, uneventful pregnancy, for me and for all of you.

    Vent over.

    I have been carrying the same worries for the past few days. I also know someone who lost her baby midterm and then reading that last week made me extremely worried. So know that you're not the only one that worries and that it is a natural response because you want to protect your child and have a healthy delivery. We worry about reaching second trimester. Then we worry about the a/s. And now we will keep worrying until we deliver. Just remember that the chance of this happening is very slim and that there is no point in worrying endlessly about something that may not even happen. I hope for healthy and safe deliveries for all you ladies x

    The worry never ends, really. I know that once I get over the second trimester, I will then worry about premature birth... And then about labor.... And then forever. My own mother has admitted to still worrying about me, and I am 34 years old... :)

    It is!

    And I know you went through a lot to get pregnant, so I'm sure the thought of losing your little boy is extra scary. I don't know what I'd do if I lost another one; I'm not sure this feeling will go away. I just say that every day I wake up is one day closer to having my baby in my arms and I do my best not to think about all the things that could go wrong between then and now. I wish I had more wisdom but that's all I've got.

    You basically just described my life. I have been worried about the same thing! I've been having pressure down there for a couple weeks and it's unnerving. I was really hoping that my second pregnancy would be less stressful than my first but it isn't. I'm always full of anxiety! I don't think I'm mentally cut out to be pregnant lol.

    I was paranoid in the very beginning because of everything we went through; then once I reached 2nd tri I calmed down and was just a happy camper... Til my friend told me about her story... Now the paranoia is back. :(
  • @kalanieileen I totally binge watched the entire first season and the few episodes of the second season in the last week. Love!

    @elasticheart13 congrats!!!

  • Made poor DH go to the commissary for this! Seriously, sex in my mouth right now!
    AmadorRose[Deleted User]mechekittyjonesl12
  • @thaisac1 I have been feeling the exact same way. I've also been feeling some weird pressure in my pelvic area and have been a little crampy the past couple of days. I hope I'm just being paranoid but I'm thinking of calling my dr tomorrow just to be sure. I don't want to go out of town for Thanksgiving Wednesday feeling like this!

    And yes, I'm sure the worry continues in a whole new way once baby is here!
