Re: FFFC

  • @QueenSunscreen - LOVE LOVE LOVE the table. And the furrybabies. Where did you get it? The table... not the pups, obviously. 
    @CanonMom & @NamelessAria - I have pinterest boards too... in the plural. I have one for conceiving tips (mostly BS, but when you're desperate, you'll try anything), one for pregnancy, one for infertility& m/c, and one for parenting advice....And it's absolutely ridiculous I have that many boards but no children. 

    @PaukMeKiande & @Buthayna - I also get immense joy from being the youngest. At work the next youngest person is still older than my mom! But I am always getting statements like this: "Kristin, we need an office baby, you're our only hope!" "Kristin, we need a party and no one is retiring anytime soon, so can you just get pregnant?"

  • I added stuff to the board fairly frequently while we were waiting to try and right after we started TTC. No I never touch it. I just can't. It's too hard to think about all that stuff. :/
    Same. The year before we started ttc I created a secret board with all the practical stuff like "12 pictures to take of your newborn on Day 1" and "10 things I couldn't live without post-partum", and maternity fashion, belly bands, diapering service ideas, etc.  By month 8 of ttc I couldn't deal so I started clicking "I'm not into pins inspired by Preparing for Baby" left and right.  They finally stopped suggesting baby stuff.  I haven't looked at it in months.  Hurts too much.  

    I have a nursery board that I started as soon as I joined pinterest, but that's more of an architectural, fantasy-type board and it doesn't bother me. Like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous but for babies haha.

    @mrsdee15 Mine are secret because I have many people follow me who know me IRL. Me wanting to keep it secret stems back from not wanting to hurt my SIL's feelings, or having her have to see us planning. (I made a previous post about her having a full hysterectomy at 24. She asked me to surrogate. Told her I wouldnt feel comfortable having two losses of my own.

  • @mrsstuessy DH gets the same way when he drinks. I flat out refuse him anymore if he's been drinking. It's like a super awkward marathon and I hate it. So now I completely shut it down lol. 

    @QueenSunscreen That table is amazing! I wish our couch wasn't against a wall, caused I'd totally do that!

    I thoroughly enjoy sex so I can't relate to not liking it. I've always had a healthy sexual appetite and healthy sexual experiences. I'm sorry for those of you who don't. It can be such an amazing thing. 

    I don't have any good confessions! Maybe that I "steal" stamps for work lol. But I never try to hide it. I just don't necessarily do it when my boss is around LOL.

  • @mrsdaddario you can totally scoot your couch out just a little bit and put one between it and the wall. cute and handy. you just have to make sure that its high enough that you can see decorative items or that you can easily reach drinks and such if you're using it like that. Actually, you could even use a shelf since you wouldn't see the whole table anyway.

    @queensunscreen I am now planning making one of these! lol thank you!

  • @meilay That is a wonderful accomplishment that you SHOULD be proud of!  I'm happy for you, overcoming something like that is difficult.

    To add to the sex talk, and I guess this is a FFFC, I've always been really sexual and loved sex. I still enjoy sex with my husband, but I secret miss the crazy passionate tearing-eachother's-clothes off sex I/we used to have regularly.  Now its sweet married people comfortable sex.  H has a weird Madonna/Whore complex so it doesn't really work for me to be sexually aggressive, and he's just a low testosterone kinda guy and isn't aggressive in general. Boo.

  • @Sparty18 I was like that with wedding/marriage related things. While waiting (not so patiently) for DH to propose I refused to think about anything related to that at all. Once I had the ring I went all out. For some reason my brain isn't working like that with baby and I need to research/plan but I get it. Ultimately whatever works best for your sanity is awesome.

  • My FFFC is that I don't look at baby/nursery stuff because I'm honestly not interested in it.  I've always hated decorating and picking out clothes and it transfers to any future offspring too.  That's more my DH's area.  But I definitely look up everything on getting pregnant.  So I more than make up for it.

  • Since we're on a Pinterest theme, on the negative Nancy side of this, I started a (secret) infertility board this week. I have found some good resources for making treatment more affordable and whatnot! But it's definitely way less fun than pinning baby things. 

    I guess my real FFFC is that I can't make myself go to the Infertility board on TB. I just like it here on TTGP, and there are so many other IF ladies here too, that I want to stay where I'm happy!

  • @nwegman7878 @NamelessAria I find myself easing over from TTCAL to this board again as well.  They are such a wonderful supportive bunch but I don't think it makes a healthy headspace for me to linger too long in my grief. I try to give support whenever I visit, but this board makes me feel more hopeful, if that makes any sense. I imagine my bad days aren't over yet though, so I will remain grateful to those kickass women. 

    In general, as I get into this next post-loss round of TTC, I want to proactively focus on other non-reproduction related parts of my life and self improvement.  I get sucked down the rabbit hole way too easily!
