So sorry Ashley!

Why cant the child call you Aunt Ashley and her Aunt L? That seems a little ridiculous to me it isnt like there is some set cap on how many Aunts a child can have. . .

All that aside. . . I am so glad you are feeling better! Hope you are able to make it to the pool soon, that sounds so nice I wish I had an indoor place to swim!

My SIL's are pieces of work... I tried, I tried hard until DH and the non immediate part of his family told me to just give up.

I told DH that's fine, my kids can just call his cousin Teri Aunt Teri, his sisters by their first name and his ex Aunt L.

I said I'd post this so you all could get caught up.

In fall of 2011, my DH's job took him down to the area he grew up in. So we packed up what we needed, and moved into a hotel an hour away, then moved into an apartment close to his job (we took over his cousin's lease for a month so she could arrange for storage of her things after losing her job).

Thanksgiving was coming up, and Dh wanted Reme to come down. So he got in touch with his ex wife, to see if it was ok if I drove up and got him, and then brought him back. She said no, that was silly, she'd meet me half way. A few days later I got the heads up that my SIL's and MIL now wanted to be the ones to drive up and get him... but they couldn't afford it so they were going to ask DH to give them the money, so that way I wouldn't be inconvenienced on getting Reme. *rolls eyes*.

Dh sent his mom a text saying no, we had the required equipment in our car already to get him, and I would do it.

I then got another heads up, my SIL's wanted to come with. Ok, this I could live with... except they are smokers.. and I was just over a cough that had lasted 6 weeks and there was no way I was going to be able to handle it. So I went to my SIL Sarah's workplace (MIL works there too) and said "look, you can come with me, but here's the thing. I'm just getting over being sick, I am just getting to the point I can breathe. You can't smoke. I don't mean just not in the car, I mean not at all. You shower before you get in the car, and you can smoke when you get home."

Well they thought I was being silly. And told me so. I told them that was the only way I was taking them with me. So my SIL said "that's fine, we will go get him, Woody will give us the money." I wasn't really comfortable having this conversation, but DH was working 10 hours a day 6 days a week and really didn't have the energy either.. so I persisted and said. "No, I'm sorry, the plans are made, I'll be meeting L half way."

SIL said "why would you drive all that way, just to drop him off at our house on your way home?"

And I paused. The whole reason Reme was coming down was to see his father. Seeing them was just an added bonus. At that point, I put my foot in my mouth, totally out of patience and said "um, no. Woody has x day off, and Reme will be spending that day with his dad. He works 10hrs every other day that he's here, so that day is his."

"Excuse me? We took x day off, so we could spend it with him. We never get to see him, he will be with us. I don't know why I'm arguing with you over this, you get no say, you don't matter. We will deal with L she will tell you what's going to happen and when. We will talk to Woody. So get out of the store, and out of my face. You have a baby and you can try and boss us around then. I don't know who the hell you think you are. You're nothing but a gold digger who ruined their marriage. I can't wait for you to go the hell back to Canada where you came from." I should note, they didn't know we were married at the time.

I left the store, drove to the closest town with cell service and called his ex. Told her what happened. She was livid. She told me to tell Woody, and to get a hold of her the next day and we'd come up with a plan.

I then picked Woody up from work. I was sitting in the car, still crying from the whole situation. I explained what happened, he told me to get in the passengers seat, and he dove to the store they work at, they were gone. So we stopped by McDonalds and took off to the farm. We pulled in right behind them.

He jumped out, walked up to the side of the car and said "you wanted to talk to me? Well I'm right here, and I'm the one who's going to do the talking."

Next thing I know DH's on the ground, and he's holding his leg with one hand, and his other hand is protecting his face. His sister had tried to kick him in the balls, and scratched at his face with her nails. I was still in the car, I refused to get out. They yelled back and forth, his mom got involved, so did the other sister. My BIL came out to put an end to the BS, and my FIL got in the middle and reminded them they were being stupid, and for the girls to go in the house.

MIL tried to talk to DH, saying that I'd made it all up, that I was just trying to cause trouble, to keep Reme away from them all. He was quick to inform HE doesn't want to bring Reme down, that HE doesn't want to be there.. that it is ME insisting that it's important for him to see them on a regular basis, ME who was making him make an effort. But now they were screwed because there was no way in hell after that I was going to go out of my way to do anything for them.

Well.. things got worse. I got a hold of DH's cousin that night, to clue her in, she told me she knew, because MIL had called Grandma, and she'd been with and heard most of the conversation. But she wanted to know OUR version. So I told her.

We had to go to Gma's and Gpas the next night, and DHmade a comment about what happened.. and his grandmother was upset, and walked out. Gpa told us not to ask, and to go find the cousin.


Well MIL and SIL told Gma and Gpa that DH had attacked SIL, that he'd hit her, kicked her, strangled her. That he'd hit MIL, pushed FIL and had body slammed BIL into the ground. Well at this point, he was pissed, but laughing so hard he couldn't see straight. DH is 6'1", 210lbs. Bil is about 5'10" 310lbs... the idea of DH bodyslamming him is beyond hilarious. So Dh went back to his grandparents and told them, "If She's telling the truth, tell her to call the police. She wont call, because I didn't lay a hand on her and any marks she has would not match my hands." Then he showed them the foot size bruise on his thigh.

Back to the story. Dh and L decided that Reme wasn't coming down. Instead after DH got off work the day before Thanksgiving we got in the car (which I'd half packed with our stuff because we found out we were 10 days from the end of the job) and drove the 10 hours to our apartment, slept for a few hours, then got up and cooked thanksgiving dinner for L, Reme Dh and I. Did some black Friday shopping, and headed back to the job for a few more days.

MIL, and SIL's have never forgiven us for it. I actually didn't see them again until we picked up his trailer from their property. MIL came out, so did BIL... he and DH had a good laugh when DH apologized for the apparently body slamming. I even made L feel liberated... she doesn't feel obliged to be at their beck and call anymore.





So that's what happened between my Inlaws and me. All I did was stand up for DH's rights as a father who missed his son more than anything else in the world and wanted to spend the ONE day he'd have off work with him... but that was just too much for his family... they wanted it their way.

SIL's would even accept my "I'm so sorry for your loss" at their grandmother's funeral. I got half of it out and they turned around and walked away.

That is all so incredibly unreasonable. . . I am amazed at how you were able to handle all of that, I don't even know what I would have done in that situation. But that really fills us in on a lot of the situation. . . basically the reason her kid wont call you Aunt Ashley is because she is completely unreasonable. I can see why you wouldn't want to try anymore. So sorry you have to deal with all of that!

Well at the time I was in the country illegially. I'd come down in April, I should have been gone within 6m. We were waiting on our marriage certificate to arrive so we could file for immigration. We didn't want to give them any ideas to go calling immigration on me. Not that much would have happened at that point... 6m not able to come back in the country I think.... but we weren't willing to risk it. DH's cousin kept trying to tell me that they weren't smart enough for that... but turns out when they found out we were married, they did wonder if they could somehow get me deported.

They are still thinking that we are going to divorce, and L and M will divorce, and L and Woody will get back together and move back down there. Both of them call the area "The soggy butthole", they hate it there. Plus L's family moved away, she's got nothing but a few friends and ex inlaws down there... why on earth would she want to go back?

DH's family like is about as opposite as mine ever could be. He and I have one like my parents (only we fight less lol). It would have eaten at my dad that he couldn't come visit me on a regular basis (drug charges, couldn't get a pardon to cross the border), his parents are only upset they don't see Reme. FIL won't let MIL come up if we have a baby, cause her place is there taking care of him. My dad would never have fathomed telling my mother what she could and could not do (except a tattoo... he was pretty firm on that way). They were a pair. He worked, she cared for his, when he was home, he cooked, cleaned helped out. Both my inlaws work (all their kids are grown up) but my MIL and SIL take care of the house... the thought my FIL would even so much do a load of dishes is laughable. He will repair a step, or make a mess outside... but inside is "woman's work." I'm so glad that DH isn't quite that sexist...he has his moments.

But DH doesn't have the same sense of family that I do. I pick up the phone and call home, he wouldn't fathom doing that. I have ALL of them on FB, he has.. I think just his cousin Teri... maybe BIL I'm not sure. (I have both.. and L's BFF so she can see Reme's pics lol). I think it's important to go down and see them once a year... but it drives me that they won't come up here. They've argued back that my family doesn't come see me either. My family would LOVE to come and see me, but passports, expensive flights, hotels.... for what it would cost just my grandmother to come see me, both SIL's, BIL, all 3 neices, MIL and FIL could come up here for a week. Despite what they think, there is a HUGE difference in the two cases... and on top of it I've only been home ONCE in 2 years, we've been down there 4x+. In what we've spent going down there, I could have flown home twice.

But my family is really important to me. And even if I can't stand them, it's important to me. I picked up yarn yesterday to make a blanket for the baby, I have to do a test pattern for a website I follow (a 20 sided Dice.. my husband is really excited for me to make it. lol) and then I'll start it. It's what I do.. make blankets. It wont fix anything, but it will make me feel better.

I'm sorry that your in laws have said and done so many hurtful things. I really admire you for being the bigger person and still making a baby blanket and trying to get along with them. Sometimes people just...suck. I don't know why people are so hurtful and petty.

Considering I'm usually a doormat... who does everything they can to appease people.... it still baffles me that it even happened to start with. It bothers me more than it does DH... I think he's secretly been looking for a reason to just say *** them for a long long time.

She's due August 27th.... freaking August.

Why is this a big deal? Well.. Konnor was due the first week of August so we share an edd month. The twins angelversary is August 24th. My Dad's birthday is August 25th. I hope she freaking goes into September!!!



I miss my husband. TTC aside, I don't like being separated from him. And I have no idea when I'm going to get to see him... right now it's looking like at least another month... that's too long! *cries*

yeah, his ex said yesterday when I told her that a co-worker of his sister told him about the baby "Geeze, I'm more family to you and Woody than they are aren't I?" mmhmm yes L you are. Dh is wondering just how long it will take for someone in his immediate family to actually tell us... since so far it's just been the co-worker and g'pa.


I'm sitting here waiting to call into work. I'm on call today, and part of me hopes they don't need me because I really don't want to go in. Honestly, I don't want to go in again ever...

They didn't need me, so I got some errands run.. rushed home because Frontier promised they'd have net today and I'd finally get to see him on Skype.

No internet. Guy didn't show 2nd day in a row.

I've had enough. I haven't "Seen" my husband since he left last Friday. I haven't gone this long with out seeing him since December 25th 2010. I've seen him daily, or at least a few days a week thanks to the lovely Skype... now... nothing. And him having to call and deal with them about the internet eats up all the time he has to spare to talk on the phone.. so I'll only get a few minutes. I hate this... I freaking hate it.

Internet companies are soooo annoying. . . as are most cable companies - even worse when they are the same company. I hope your DH gets it all set up today so you can see him!!!!!

I'm sorry about the internet issues. I agree that is really frustrating that they haven't come to fix it. They can't be that busy.

Before I got engaged, I lived in an apartment in a really small town. The internet people would come really quickly if you had a problem because they weren't that busy. One time, I had a few too many drinks, and I did a little creative re-wiring on my phone and internet cables. Basically, I plugged them into the wrong outlets or something. I couldn't figure out what I did, so I called the internet guy and he came to look at it. All he had to do was switch the cables, and you could tell he was really disgusted with me and thought I was so stupid. *lol* Just one of the many reasons I quit drinking!!! *lol*

They finally came yesterday. So I got to "see" him for over 2 hours. Kinda sucks all the fun out of my evening cause I have to sit at the desk and do nothing, but it's worth it. I'm trying to plan a trip down to see him, but the cat complicates things. Unless his ex wants to cat sit, I can't go . She's too little to be left alone for 3-4 days and since she hasn't had her first vet visit, I can't kennel her.

It looks like June will be our next cycle we can TTC. DH should be home in May, unless he goes right to another job. I'm ok with June, part of me hopes that things don't Align right until July or August. Nothing good ever happens in March for my family, I don't think I want a March baby (June and July conceptions would give me March edd's, IF I Ovulate like my chart says I will).

I am ok with the months we will miss out on, because that's one more cycle I have to try and lose some weight, and get better. My cold is pretty much gone, my cough almost non existent. This means that Monday I should be ok to start getting in the pool and do laps. I will call and book the OB appointment next week (for the 2nd week in April, give or take depending on when they want me to come in in my cycle), I should be on my thyroid meds 8 weeks by the time I'm with DH again full time, maybe more.

We've pledged, that if he doesn't go straight to another job, we will not be lazy this summer like we usually are. We have a pool, and a gym... we have a lovely area to walk in at night.. why we don't do these things I don't know. But we are going to this year. DH has a belly he needs to lose, he has man boobs he wants to say goodbye to. His skin condition makes things difficult, because his body needs insane amounts of protein... but I can make things healthier, I just don't because I'm lazy.

but the fact of the matter is. I want a child. And if I have to eat a salad every day for lunch and Special K for breakfast, I'll do it. I will do what it takes to be as healthy as I can when sperm meets egg. And I will do what I must to keep that pregnancy as healthy as possible from start to finish.

Today is March 22nd. My baby brother's 20th birthday. I'm estimated to O on June 9th that gives me a little less than 3 months. I can do this... I will do this. I deserve this and I'm coming to get it!

And it looks like it's wonky test time!!! I've been having the same ewcm that I get right before AF. It's the same color, it's stretchy.. but it's very... firm and sticky feeling if you touch it. So I decided to take an opk and a hpt. Now.. I've taken several hpts from the same batches that gave me weird lines prior to AF... this is a totally different batch for the hpt.. but this is what I got.





I couldn't get a good shot of the line to show up on the camera. But it came up right away, and is pink. wtfudgestick body.. wtfudgestick!

No idea, but when I do see the OB I'm going to see if she'll run a baseline hcg. I had a battle a few years ago where after a miscarriage my hcg sat at 6 for 6m (and was not a molar pregnancy, they tested for it). I was doing a clinical thing with the NuvaRing, and my ovulation was being tracked via ultrasound.. I'm just wondering if it's happening again.

It's annoying cause I had several negative tests before this one.... so it's just screwy
