hhhhmmmm.....can't help you there (obviously!)  Here, I know we signed up for some deal where it's free, along with so many minutes, etc.  We don't have data plans - we just use WIFI here at home or whereever it's free.  I don't think BBs are that great for browsing anyway - iPhones are better for that (but worse for texting and emailing)....

I empathize! I've been there with hubby gone and hearing all the noises in the house. Once he was gone 3 months and I was pregnant with my second!
I'll pray for you that you can get some rest and that God's angels will suround you and give you peace. :)

Did you ever look into BlackBerry Messenger?  It would be a great way to keep in touch with Josh while he's gone....assuming he's got a BB, too :)

What's up with you?  I just saw your status....I totally agree with you about friends - some people who I thought I was close with have ended up disappointing/hurting me, too.  I've been feeling pretty alone lately, actually, aside from DH and the boys.

I couldn't agree with your mood message more! My mom told me many years ago that you find out who your true friends are when you are going through a trial. Boy, ain't that the truth!

lol!  Me too!!  Maybe when our kids are older and we're "women of leisure" and don't know what to do with ourselves.....All the women I know whose kids are older (teens or out of the house) are always complaining to me about how they're kids don't need them anymore and they don't know what to do with themselves.....I think to myself "gee, that doesn't sound THAT bad! - wanna come watch my kids so I can go out and do something??"  haha....I guess the grass is always greener on the other side....

That sounds like the deal Lou got me - mani, pedi, facial, massage.......aaaahhhhhhh :)  I feel relaxed just thinking about it! ;)  He got me a package with a mud wrap one other time - now THAT was amazing!!  Actually, he got me that one for my birthday last year but I didn't use it until May - right around the time I was o'ing and we were trying for Gil :)  Maybe that extra relaxation helped me conceive....hehe!!  The only time I go for that stuff is when I get a gift certificate like that from Lou.  It makes it more of a treat when you don't go that often, I think.

Yes!  Definitely make sure that you do something for YOU before she gets here :)  I had a pedicure before I had Gil and that felt AMAZING!  Actually, Lou got me a whole spa package for Christmas, so I used that in January before I had him.  I hadn't done anything like that before Daniel, but to be honest, you need it MUCH MORE with the second one since you haven't had as much time to just relax and revel in being pregnant as you get to the first time around....

LOL!  Thanks for making me laugh and smile - I needed that :)  I wish we could do that.....I also need some alone time.  I feel so guilty for admitting that, but it's so true!!!  I made plans with a friend to go out for dinner this week, I hope that helps.  Plus I have to get a haircut which is going to get me out of the house by myself - how sad is it that a haircut has become something to look forward to as an escape?? lol

Our cat accidentally scratched Daniel once - well he was provoked, Daniel was in his face.  Daniel wasn't hurt, but I thought Lou was going to kill the cat....he threw him in the laundry room for awhile to "think about things", lol.  He was my cat first, I got him before Lou and I met, and I'd have had no qualms about getting rid of him if he'd hurt Daniel.  I find I have a lot less patience for him since I've been a mom.  Before I had kids, he was my baby, following me everywhere....Now I don't have much time for him.  He's 10 now and I won't give him away to just anyone, especially not the Humane Society.  He's ours, for better or worse!!

I see what you mean - I mean, if you don't have anyone else to watch him, what are you supposed to do?  I'd still check on the rules with the hospital, though - you wouldn't want to have a problem when you show up.  That's where having a scheduled c-section is easier, I suppose - not saying that you should opt to go that route or anything!!  I've seen a few people on the forum talk about bringing their kids to L&D when they were actually in labour, so maybe it's just my hospital here that's extra strict or weird on that point or whatever, lol.

Still no call from the billing people at the hospital, speaking of the hospital.  They're not in any hurry to get this resolved or get paid, it seems.... ;)

The hospital where you're going to deliver doesn't mind children in the delivery room?  Ours here specifcally states that children are not welcome in the room during labour and delivery - and only siblings of the new baby are allowed to visit afterwards where children under 12 are concerned.  Even if we'd been able to have Daniel there during, we wouldn't have - it would have been too much of a distraction to me and I don't know how he would have dealt with seeing me in pain, hooked up to an IV, etc.  He visited me in the hospital the next day.  It's too bad that your mom can't come a few days before your due date so that she'd be there for when you do need to go in!

Sorry for complaining about that - I know that you guys generally pay A LOT more for medical stuff down there, we're spoiled up here....It just *****.  If I hadn't screwed up initially, this wouldn't have happened....argh....

Who's going to watch him?  Did your cousin finally commit?  

I just found out that my 3 night stay in the hospital when I had Gil back in January still hasn't been paid for!  I accidentally had the hosptial submit it through Lou's insurance through work but I should have done it through mine so I got a notice about it back in April (I think) and I contacted the hospital and gave them the correct info.  They ended up being late submitting it to my insurance company (who's also my employer) and, long story short, the insurance company says they aren't going to pay it now!  It's $450....I'm waiting to hear back from the patient accounts manager.  I hope we don't need to pay this out of pocket, it's not like we've got the cash just laying around, especially with me off work right now...

That's awesome that you get along so well with your step-MIL.  My dad has remarried and we - Lou included - totally don't like his wife.  My mom has passed away, though....that, along with a serious personality clash between us, contributes to it, I think.  I mean, my mom raised me (she died when I was 24) so I guess I look at it differently.  I don't think she likes us, either (certain incidents have proven that) so the feeling is mutual, lol.

How's everything going with the baby? :)

Thanksgiving was good....We had Lou's family over on Saturday and it was nice to host and not have to travel ourselves for a change (pretty much everyone is his immediate family lives an hour away - except for one of his sisters who lives in another province).  

I'm glad you had some nice family time, too :)  How do you get along with your inlaws?  Whatever happened with your MIL and that email she sent you about the benefits of breastfeeding?

Oh wow - I can't believe you're so close!! I felt like once I hit 30 weeks I was way closer than when I was in the 20's....I mean, techically I WAS, but I felt like I could go at any time.....when, in reality, I still had 11 weeks to go both times, lol!
