Sorry I have been MIA (and TMI)

Hello all,

I just read a ton of posts and think I am all caught up and it sounds like everyone is well. Sorry I have been MIA but life has been too much lately.

One of our six 4 legged children passed away and one had to find a new home (both dogs) the same week. I cried for days. And then this past Saturday the MIL let one of our cats out who has not yet come home. We went from 6 pets to 3 in less than 2 months. I am heartbroken.

We bought a new house and moved within 4 days of closing and had not even packed yet. All the parents "helped" and that was a disaster. I do not want to bore you with the details but I do not wish it on anyone.

8 days after moving was the shower and while beautiful it caused me so much stress b/c of all the drama. My sister cried at the shower b/c I was getting all the attention and did not spend enough time with her. MIL bought almost everything on the registry making the step-mom and mom feel bad. FIL crashed the party. BF got kicked off the "committee" by the MIL and SM.

We are hemorrhaging money and I am freaking out about it.

My favorite MW left the practice. Sad

My mom says that she will not come to the hospital if my dad is there...they have been divorced for 36 years...get over it.

I have bacterial vaginosis so bad and I am so swollen that the lady part skin is splitting and itches like crazy and is raw. I also have a yeast infection. They have me on a 14 day antibiotic course and 14 day yeast infection meds.

My poor DH has probably only had sex 3 times in 6 months and I have no desire and obviously am in too much pain to anyway.

My BIL & SIL live in Omaha, NE where there is a nuclear disaster and so we are worried about them. And why is this not on the news anywhere?? It has been going on since 6/6.

I just want this to be over (I do not want her to come early, I just want to skip ahead and be done) so that I can find a new normal and get back to life without the overwhelming feeling of wanting to kill everyone that comes within 10 feet of me.

Thanks so much for reading and understanding my absence and I hope that I can jump right back in since life should calm down (until she arrives)

i'm so sorry that so much has been going on. That really sucks.
I really hope things get quieter for you and you can relax and enjoy the last few weeks of pregnancy.

Thank you! I do too. Smile I suppose so long as I tough it out with a smile it is okay (and I have been). I have tried so hard to find the positives in everything, I just feel overwhelmed.

I live outside of Omaha, and i can tell you every thing is fine here, the Nuclear plant was shut down for maintenance, and has been sand bagged because of the flooding just to be on the safe side, there is no real threat as of now. the plant is in Fort Calhoun which is north of Omaha. many people are spreading rumors and gossip, not to mention the people who panic at every little thing.

I am so sorry you are having such a rough time.
I know what it is like to lose the 4 legged kind,in to many ways.
how far away did you move? it is possible that the cat who got out wandered back to your old home??? I have heard of this happening many times, so maybe you could have some one check, or leave food out at your old place?

I hope you feel better soon, and the drama slows down.

Wow - it seems as if you have a lot on your plate right now. I sure hope life gets less stressful for you!

It was good to hear from you though.

I'd say if your mom doesn't want to be there because your dad is there, tough cookies on her. If she's so petty to miss out over that, then that's all on her. (My mom refused to come to my DD's 1st bday party because my ex-step-dad was there. Um, *she* cheated on him and left him, he had no issues with her being there, and he is totally the one who should have been upset if someone was going to be. But that was her loss).

I'd take a lot of probiotics while your on the antibiotics. Otherwise, the antibiotics will cancel out your yeast infection meds and your infectioin will just get worse. Just in case the doc's didn't tell you that, I thought you would want to know. Wink

I hope you start to feeling better and things get better quickly. Trust me though, once your baby is here it will be a whole new set of stressers for you, not that that probably helps a ton. Hang in there!

Crystal, the comment on your ticker is too funny. Just last Tuesday I developed the dreaded cankles and I have been trying everything to make them go no avail.

Thanks for the positive wishes...just like everyone else I am sure I am just tired and ready to meet little one. Smile

Holy crap girl, thats a lot of stuff to deal with. No wonder you're MIA! :bighug:

hang in there! I'm so sorry for your losses - furry family members are still family, and its hard to lose them - doesnt matter if its a death or having to get them a new home etc.

As for the family drama - I agree with you and pp - if people will be so petty that they want to miss out on the big important things in life, let them. As hard as it is, and I'm sure you want them all around for things, its their loss to miss out for silly drama things. I'm sorry you have to deal with all that, nevermind throwing in the hormones of being 8m preggo!
I hope all the infections and things go away quick so you can get a small break. try to take some time for yourself if you can! We're here if you need to rant any more about things.

Oy! It seems that things always happen all at once. I know it doesn't seem like it now, but things will turn around and get better. Its hard to have all those things happen at once, not to mention be pregnant at the same time! As far as your mom goes, hopefully she'll get over it once the date gets closer and she decides its more important to be there with you. I hope things turn around for you soon!!

Boy, when it rains it pours doesn't it!

Welcome back and I hope things get better. My MIL is the exact same way but thankfully for us my FIL and his wife live in CO and my MIL lives here.
