The tital says it all Wink Post your rants, and comizerate, here Smile

*******************************************************

I am sick of everything in my house, it being all over the place all the time, not having the energy, or being in too much pain, to do anything about it. I am sick of my 3 year old testing and not listening... I know its a phase, but why does he have to do it right when I am feeling miserable??? also, I am still having BH's... at least some of the pressure seems to have gotten better after being on antibiotics for the UTI, and the BH's arent all that often, I am just nervous that they are still there. Also, I have a foot or something stuck up under my rib. lol.

My hips hurt, by the end of the day my feet are killing me, no matter what shoes I happened to wear that day. My cats are picking up on my hormones and are crying loudly to be petted but as Soon as I bend down (ever the process), they run. I despise our new paralegal at work (and it didn't help that they let go our part time paralegal who happened to be my best friend here) to hire him. My house constantly feels messy to me. Everything smells everywhere. Chocolate makes me nauseous, and my.five year old is off the wall hyper. DH has no clue why I'm stressed and exhausted (mostly work related) and he's not doing anything extra around the house to help out.

Cancer sucks. Especially when a baby has it. And having a newborn and a baby with cancer, really sucks!

Um I think you take the cake for rants! I can not imagine how hard that must be. I don't know your story, but I hope your sweet little one gets better soon!

I guess my rant would be DH. He's getting on my nerves lately. I hate to even say that because normally I love being around him and I feel like we have a really great relationship. I have always taken pride in the fact that we get along and enjoy being married to one another, but lately he just drives me nuts! Ugh I keep telling myself that it is probably just hormones and it will get better, but it doesn't. Has anyone ever felt like this? I mean, I want to be nice and pleasant, but I just can't seem to make myself be "myself" around him.

Totally have been there. I love my DH, and like you, I love being married to him. But, there are times, when I want him to shut it. lol. Luckily, its not all the time, and it does seem to be when I am more hormonal. My advice, take some time just to yourself. Get out of the house, leave him with DS, and just take yourself out to lunch, go shopping, see a movie, whatever it is that YOU enjoy. Just because you are married to someone doesnt mean that you have to like all the same things, be joined at the hip when you arent separated by work, etc. Also, as a mom, I know I have a hard time finding, let alone taking, time just for me. And, its also important that you do it. The same goes for the marriage relationship. Even just an hour in the tub, alone to read a book, or whatever, helps me Smile

My quad screen came back positive, 1:100 odds of Trisomy 21. Went in for level 2 ultrasound and they found 2 soft markers, raising odds to 1:15. Drs pushed hard for me to do an amnio, but I refused. Then, they offered me the MaterniT blood test. Thankfully, it came back normal! BUT the doctors still tried to posh me into an amnio for 100% certainty. Smh. The blood test has 99.5% certainty, why would I risk an amnio?

We live in military housing and have had a lot of problems with mold. I've had to move us to a temporary house twice since my husband deployed in March, so that they could remediate the house. We were out of our home for 6 weeks in March-April and 3 weeks in May-June. The mold is back and it looks like we will have to leave, again. Smh.

My husband's 6 month deployment (it was supposed to be a short one, since they just got home from a long one less than a year ago) keeps growing and is now about 8 months. He's currently due home less than a week before my C-section. Rumor has it, we will have two months following deployment to report in CA where they've decided to move his squadron. Smh.

My rant for the day is packing for 5 people!! My DH is no help and doesnt even seem to care that we are leaving tomorrow! He sat on his *ss all day while I went to class and had to work and did not a darn thing!!! Now he is at work until 11 and Im not going to have him digging for his stuff in the room while I am trying to sleep so I can go to work in the morning again before we leave! I cant believe he doesnt feel the need to help me at all! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With my first they pushed for me to have an amnio, because (according to a specialist) wouldnt it be horrible if I ended up with a baby with downs and OI (the genetic condition I have). I was 21 at the time. I told her that I would love my baby no matter what, and wouldnt risk its life. So, I did agree to the us. They still did extra ultrasounds at the end to watch growth and for other signs of the OI any way, so with the last 2, and this one, I opted just to do the 20 week anatamy, and then the extra ones at the end that they do anyway. Doctors can be so ridiculous sometimes. I have a friend that went through the same tests you did, was even told to terminate because of all the problems her baby was supposed to have... she didnt, and has a perfectly healthy little boy now.

Wow. We moved about a month after DS2, and then DD, were born. NOT fun. Hopefully your older kids will be at least a little helpful Smile

I don't ever say it, but y'all have been in my thoughts and prayers everyday. Seems like life keeps throwing y'all curve balls. ((hugs))

My rant is my husband. Before I left to go home (a month ago!) my laptop track pad went nuts. We diagnosed that it wasn't software related and the trackpad itself has issues. The closest store to get it fixed is 1.5 hours away. After two trips it's still not fixed for various reasons (one is a dumb employee the other a dumb DH who made us late to our appt and they said it would be the next day till they could get to it which doesn't work for us obviously). So DH said he'd fix it himself. He still hasn't bought the part!!!! AUGH!!!! I know my husband can fix it too (before his current career he was a computer engineer). He just won't. I've stolen his laptop at this point (which means his stolen my iPad in turn). The main reason why I'm so irritated at this point is that I want to continue my hypnobabies home study, but I can't do more without the CDs. We have no CD player in this house. His laptop doesn't have a CD drive. Just mine does. My computer is sooooooooo messed up with the trackpad that I can't even do anything simple like load up a CD and move the tracks to my phone (my original intent with the hypnobabies CDs). :banghead:

((hugs)) I wouldn't agree to the amnio either.

Our last military housing we had to sign an agreement stating that we knew that there was mold in the house (among other things). It was a lovely place to bring a newborn back to. :roll: Thankfully we were only there for 17 months. I feel like we're living in the ritz at our current base compared to that one!!!

And I've decided to never ever believe any dates or possibilities when it comes to deployments and TDYs. They're never right. Sad

My only rant is that we have a skunk that has somehow gotten into our utility room and I don't know what to do. Last night after I put the kids to bed I was reading in the living room and could hear a scratching noise coming from the kitchen. We live in a 200 year old house, so we do get mice on occasion. I thought that's what it was, I went in to look and realized it's coming from the utility room off the kitchen, which is so old it has a dirt floor.

The door to the room is a sliding door that is slotted almost like a shutter. Thank goodness I looked through before I opened the door because all I could see is this small cat sized animal with white fur! My DH works night shift so I was home alone. I banged on the door really hard and yelled and it ran out (hopefully back out completely the way it got in) and I blocked the door with chairs so it doesn't slide. I had to wait until DH came home before I would go back downstairs. We kept checking the room all night and didn't see it again, so we're really hoping that it went back out. No DH has to spend his day off trying to find out how it got in and block it off, plus he broke the hot water faucet in the kitchen last night as well.

So long story short, we can't wait to be able to move next summer!

I couldn't believe how hard they were pushing for an amnio, in case I would want to terminate. Smh. I told them that I wasn't even concerned about Downs syndrome, but they didn't seem to like that answer.

Luckily, we are really good at moving. I just didn't want to spend my recovery time/DHs leave moving. Beee

This is our 6th deployment and the first with a date change. DH is attached to a carrier, with that many different ships and divisions they try not to make changes. It's rough on my kids, because we make a huge deal out of hitting double digits and we hit them twice already, only to be extended. So, now we are waiting again for double digits.

We had to sign a move in sheet saying we knew there was mold, but it would be fixed. They keep trying to paint over it. When my oncologist started finding weird cysts in my scans, he told me to get the house checked. It tested positive for 4 types of mold, including two very dangerous ones. We have saved enough to buy a house, but have to go where ever they send the air group when this ship is decommissioned. Beee so we can't even start a lease, let alone buy at this point.

And this just turned into more venting and ranting. Wink oh well, all four of my kids are healthy. It's only 110 degrees (its been running 130) for DH on the flight deck right now. And my oldest is on a mission trip handing out supplies and serving meals to the homeless. So the good still out weighs the bad. Smile

I'm glad you found it and not your kids! Mine would have eagerly let the "kitty" in to play! Lol
