I am!! What's everyone up to? DH is at school for about another hour, then he's got an hour drive home. I haven't cooked dinner and don't plan on it LOL When he calls, I'm gonna tell him he can either have frozen pizza or Chinese. HA! SO THERE! I cook every night, I figure I can take one night off every now and again.
I've been looking at baby clothes online. It occurred to me that I had mentioned to my mom that I wanted something for the baby that says I love Daddy on it. She said she had bought some things that said that. But when she came to my baby shower, she didn't bring ANYTHING because she's buying me the glider and she wanted to make sure it matched the crib. So.. now I'm thinking she didn't have those clothes, either. DH's birthday is tomorrow. I have no idea what to get him, but I think as part of his gift, I'm gonna get him a card from Julie. I gave him a Father's Day card from the dog last year and he got super emotional - but I think it's because he misses HIS dad (he passed two years ago). I also realized that DH and I have bought absolutely nothing for the baby. Everything has been given to us. I'd really like to pick something out for her - from both of us, but he'd have to be with me and that's rare.
Also, I need to know what you ladies think about this. A friend of mine (who, actually has been a seriously CRAP friend lately) showed up today with all kinds of baby stuff. She had a miscarriage 6 years ago. All the stuff she gave me is from when she found out she was pregnant. She went out and bought alllllll this stuff and then a few weeks into the pregnancy, she lost the baby. I'm not sure how to feel about all these clothes she gave me. On one hand, I'm grateful for more stuff... but... I dunno, I just feel weird.
I could be chatty!
We had a couple of dr appts today. One for me for my 30 weeks. It was pretty routine. BP was good. I'm up about 20lbs but the dr says he is good with that and see's nothing wrong with it. Me..not so much! But...heart rate was 136 and i'm measuring right at 30 weeks too. Oh and he only heard her heartbeat..no multiple scare like last time..I like this dr. Hahahaha!
Then we had a dr appt for my step son. Who got into his first fight the middle of January(dumb run their mouths kind of crap then can't back anything up-dumb boys!) and he ended up with a fractured nose. So we had to take him into an ENT-yeah it took this long. They can't do anything with it until he turns 16 at least. So that was that.
Then...were in the middle of a snow storm and I use that term loosely because well, I am from Chicago....but...it took us 2 hours to make a 45 min drive. Have I mentioned lately that I hate the snow and would love to be living back down in FL? Sigh...
Jessica, I would take the clothes if I were you. Maybe she is making up for being a bad friend lately?
Jill, oops just saw this! Glad your appt went well. Sorry to hear about your step son, that stinks.
I'm worn out, just got home from work. I have a midwife appt tomorrow. Im so happy its friday and I have the morning off! We are going to ikea on saturday and I have to work on Sunday.
Jessica, I would take the clothes. She might have been a crap friend lately because your being pregnant is hard for her. The clothes are probably her trying to make amends and ... well ... no reason for them to go to waste just because of the circumstances. Also, I'd just ask my mom outright if she got those clothes.
Jill, OMG about your step-son! I don't look forward to that kind of stuff when DS gets older.
AFM, I have guard duty this weekend then I'm on military duty all week next week. I have to do 15 days a year and want to knock some out before I have the baby so I'm not scrambling to get them all done by Sept of next year. We also scheduled DS appt to have his tubes removed. It's a minor surgery and we've been through it, but it's always scary when they have to knock them out.
The one thing I miss about my last board is how chatty we were. There were TONS of posts everyday and a good 20 people that posted on a daily basis. It helped to kill some time and keep us all going during the pregnancy lol.
Jessica: I totally say ordering food is the way to go some nights!!! I also agree with others that I would take the clothes and also that her bad actions lately could be some jealousy and even sadness at the pregnancy thing.
Jill: I hate when rides take way longer then they are supposed to!!! it is nuts!
Joan: How come you are having the tubes removed? We just let my daughters fall out on their own. The first set didn't even last a year but as of Dec these were still in and doing great.
AFM: Well we had a snow day today... annoys me in one way because it is not even snowing yet and at first we were having an early release at 10:43 which means we don't have ot make the day up but then the governor came on and asked schools to cancel so we did and now it is an extra day I have to go back in June from my maternity. it still has not even started to snow... they are predicting 30 inches by Sunday BLAH!!! My birthday is Sunday and I was born in the blizzard of 78 so we always get a big storm around my birthday...YUCK but at least maybe we will finish my daughters room and get Rylee's going or done!
Aimee - total bummer about the snow day! What a waste.
As for the tubes, the first set fell out, so for the second set, they put in a t-shaped tube so they could be in for 2 years. They have to be removed.
I could be chattier today. I wish I could chat more often, but I can't really log on during work hours.
I have an appt this morning at 10:30, I'm sure it will just be measuring the baby and listening to the heartbeat, but its nice to have the morning off work.
Last night we had to take my dog to the vet and to get a prescription for prozac. It was the last resort. We will also be hiring a behaviorist to come to our house. She is just being so bad lately (I think its because we just moved) but its causing me and DH to fight a lot. We had to skip our valentines day dinner because of her behavior and we think its only going to get worse when the baby is here. We are going to attempt to go out to eat tonight. I have the D.A.P ready, her calming treats, a citronella bark collar and a fort in front of the door. We can't crate her because she ends up hurting herself until she escapes.
What else? Well I mentioned Ikea tomorrow. Not much else going on with me. My first baby shower is next weekend with DH's family. I'm excited and nervous!! Well I will update more after the appt!
Elizabeth, I hope your dog starts behaving better! That sounds crazy.
Aimee, they do that here - canceling schools and whatnot, even when it hasn't even started snowing.
AFM, the insurance adjuster is supposed to be here in a few minutes to survey the damage done by the tree. Finally. Maybe next week we can move forward in getting some friggin' heat in this place. I mean, the space heaters do okay, but I'd rather have HEAT, ya know? Plus I worry about my dogs if it's too cold outside... how cold is it inside?
I FREAKED OUT last night. I mean, crying like crazy! I cried all night long. Didn't get any sleep. DH was rubbing my leg and telling me he was never going to leave - never going to cheat blahblahblah, which is WHY I was crying (don't ask) but it wasn't helping to hear him say those things. Well, it was to a degree.. Atleast he was trying. This morning, I call him... he immediately says we're okay and don't be sad anymore to which I bust into tears again - and cry all morning. THEN, I realize I never told him happy birthday (it's today) and I REALLY started crying.
So - judge me if you will, but I called my OB and asked if I could be put back on my anti depression meds. I'm so sad all the time. I mean, if I can't get myself straight, I'm gonna lose my husband and my job. They haven't called me back yet, so I don't know if they're going to allow it, but I really hope they do. It can't be good for baby either - me whirling around in my own head all the time and crying over situations that exist ONLY in my head but I can't stop obsessing about and worrying about them.
