I feel like I've done nothing but eat constantly the past 2 days.... Lots of cramping/stretching sensations too so must be a 13wk growth spurt for this one.

Over the cold. Should be getting better tomorrow.

I have a love/hate relationship with the anticipation. On one hand, it's so much fun! On the other hand it's like "Ok, I want my baby, can we be done with this now????"

It's been a bad day.

DH was laid off a week ago (210+ ppl were). Unemployment is being a pain, they think we're trying to collect off a diff job (one he quit b/c it was horrible) so that's going to delay paperwork.

You can only stretch ___ amt of $ so far, ya know? Very stressed

Paperwork nightmare today. Phone call nightmare, can't even get through to unemployment, they literally just hang up on you and tell you to call back.

And now the car won't start. I'm assuming from the cold weather. Yay.

Me too.

To top it off it's the anniversary of my mom's death. Neither of my parents are alive.

I'm really hoping next week is better. I could use some good stuff. lol

Thanks Bree... Amazingly today IS starting to brighten up. DH and I aren't as snippy at each other (stress is horrible!), we were able to get out of the house (snowed in) today and get some much needed items. AND we found our dog... he always comes when we call and he didn't come last night. He just popped up behind the truck after we got home. Boy did I scold him... and then gave him a leftover rib bone

Darn dog, he's my favorite pet, I was so worried!

Taking kiddo into ER today, she has a UTI and obviously we're having insurance issues since being laid off, applying for state but it takes time, at least they can backdate and pay for it.


This is her fist real sickness, breaks my heart. Hope she does ok on abx, I hate them but know they're necessary for UTIs.

I emailed the MW I'm really interested in, I cannot WAIT to hear back from her!

I hope she is within our price range... she sounds perfect, very laid back. I was upfront about what I'm looking for in a MW and the things I allow and do and don't do etc... I don't want to waste her time or mine, and I'm not driving 2 hrs away just to figure out during the consultation that it's not going to work out.

I didn't click with my recent mw at first, but we connected much better during the pregnancy. I think a lot of it was how unplanned the pregnancy was.

i didnt click with the MW who was at finns birth right away either, i found her to be cold/harsh, but after getting to know her i think she just takes a while to warm up to people, im very glad she and her student were the ones there when Finn was born

i hope it will work with this new MW, 2 hours is a long drive!!

That's exactly how I felt Payson's midwife was. I ended up loving her though and very quickly.
