So tomorrow I get to order all of the stuff off of amazon.com and hopefully it will all be here before the weekend =) I am also taking like Thursday to hang out with my friend who had a b-day yesterday and I am taking some time for myself. I think we were going to go out and do some stuff tomorrow if I can get DH to agree (he doesn't want me driving so late in my pregnancy because he is afraid I will go into labor and he won't be able to get to the hospital in time) but she drives a truck and I need to go to the grocery store and god knows I don't want to have to ask her to drive all that way even if I am paying for her gas! Oh well!

Hey I am okay super sore from all of the cleaning I did on Saturday still. I really don't think it is your hormones that is causing it.... Most people are buying stuff around the 24 week mark but it seems like he is having issues for some reason. I could understand if you $ is as tight as ours (until tomorrow thank god!!!) and were waiting for a lump some of $ but it is going to come back to bite him in the butt when he realizes how much is going to have to go into picking out everything and pay for it all... It is a lot of freaking money to spend at one time and I kinda wish I didn't have to spend 2K on baby stuff all at once but it has to be done! I am so glad that he at least decided to go buy the crib and mattress though! Maybe he is coming around...

Wow he needs to make up his mind!!! Every other check is not a lot of time at all to get everything you need! Hopefully he will see the light very soon! We waited because we had no choice whatsoever so here I am! I wouldn't wish this on anyone! It drives me absolutely crazy!
Glad to hear that you are def getting things started even if it just cleaning out her room. I am not feeling well today and i think I am going to lay down and take a nap!!!

Thanks! Actually for the bigger things (like the travel system/pack n play/diapers) we are going to get them on Amazon.com... Danny doesn't want me going out while he is at work lugging around Richie and getting over heated and going into labor... So his solution was to order them offline! I agree with him though and he said as soon as he gets home I can go and shop and that way I don't have to take Richie with me =) I don't mind taking him but he is getting awfully hard to lift into the carts and such and god knows he's way too big for a stroller. As long as I can order the big things that will be harder to find around here it is def better to go this route.
Yeah your SIL seems like a real piece of work!!! And hopefully your DH will be around (lol) when you go into labor!!!

As for my shopping trip I am going to try to plan it out well and hopefully not over do it too badly. I have a gf that I met on base here that will be going with me (she has a truck so we can go pick up the travel system and the pack n play) and she is 32 week pregnant so she has a few things that she is going to need to pick up...her hubby is deployed right now in Afghanistan and will be back at the mid/end of next month so I am not the only one waiting to do things!
Has your SIL been giving you anymore [email protected]?

I am sure he did well too! He is def a smarty pants! I don't put too much into EDD and they are just that, an estimation. I know that my babies are always a little smaller in the beginning and then the last trimester they become HUGE and I end up delivering earlier with decent sized babies. I am really hoping to make it full term or even after would be okay with me too. I am glad that your appointment went well and I don't pay much attention to what the doctors are telling me but I have also had 2 babies and I know what is going on with my body but with you it may be different... Things are going well here and DH helped me clean this morning and although I wasn't completely satisfied with it but I am trying to be a little less picky about it all... I am way too OCD!

I am sorry that is terrible! Throwing punches in his sleep! Wow! I would have nailed him back lol. Yeah things are definitely getting better no doubt (well at least they have been today) and this was way worse than just a rough patch but hopefully he will keep his cheery little attitude he has been sporting around today!
We have been discussing how we are going to spend this money that we are going to get on Tuesday and how much of it we are going to put into a high yield savings account! We are very excited about it!
I am pretty much allowed to buy anything that I want too! I really know that he feels bad about how things have been going! He doesn't know when he gets the results of his test either but soon I am pretty sure!

Thanks! Yeah things have been progressively getting worse and I really had to lay down the law and I told him if it didn't stop then there was going to be no future for us because I was not and am not going to put up with the bullsh*t anymore. So he went to bed early (he had his staff testing this morning) and woke me up at 4 am so we could talk. Well, things have definitely been better than they have been in months and I really feel like I did the right thing by telling him exactly what was going through my head. So although even it is only 11 am here I feel so much better! I am tired though and will be taking a nap =)

with the whole situation and I swear I am going to end up getting divorced again... I just feel it coming... This is the time that we are supposed to be enjoying but I am pretty sure that I am going to end up taking care of this little girl all by myself even if we are all together or not. I just don't know anymore...
Anyways, I agree with your hubby. At least have a diaper party or something!

Well today has been a really rough day. Me and DH have been fighting all day and for most of the day I have been crying and upset (which I know is not good for the baby) and I am really just starting to get pissed off about it. I can't get him to see that I am too pregnant to do everything myself and it seems like things are just getting worse. He goes to work, comes home, sits on his computer and does whatever, and then goes to bed. I have this talk with him every single week and he apologizes and tells me he will try harder blah, blah, blah... Today he had the nerve to tell me to shut the f*ck up because he was tired of hearing it! I instantly started crying and all of this in front of my 3.5 year old and he ends up yelling too. SO unhealthy for all of us... I am about at my end

Awww....I'm sorry you didn't get out to that movie!  I don't really know what's playing now either, except for Dinner with Schmucks (I like Steve Carrell, so that might be good) and Eat, Pray, Love.  I read the book and loved it, so that's why I'm so interested in seeing the movie.  The sad part was that, as we were waiting in line, my friend and I noticed that we were the youngest one there...it was middle aged women waiting to see it!  When did I get "old"?  When did that happen??  I don't FEEL old!  ;)

Her other brother's GF who had the baby and my SIL turned up at the birth basically. Well she was ill and I mean ill, she had to have a blood transfusion after birth because like her mum she doesnt stop bleeding... Now that's genetic.. and if you have it before you'll have it again. Well my SIL who has already had a baby now magically needs blood transfusions? my other SIL the nice one. Also had pre eclapsymia (Cant spell) sickness 14 times a day untill the end and constant nose bleeds.. now the horrible SIL has all of that, although no one not even people that live with her have seen this.?
What ever someone else has, she has. The worst one was.. When I had to have my Abortion cause of my Anorexia and weight at the time Last year. She told me she was made to have an abortion. She Lied x

Sunday morning on the way to the beach I ate one chocolate bar, she said OMG you eat way too much! YEP WHAT A GREAT THING TO SAY TO AN ANOREXIC! I also have really loww blood pressure its 90/60 and I keep fainting so I have to make sure I have sugar... she went oh Im goin to faint, I told her to sit with her head between her legs, she goes yeah like that would f*cking work. I swear thats what you're meant to do. She drinks EVERYDAY, a very Excessive amount as well, her baby is 2 months behind as a result! She also had Arthuritus.. Now medical research shows that, Alcohol reduces and can help with arthuritus, like make it better?? So if thats correct then she is pretty cured, but she has made such a big deal she started taking her medication again when she doesnt need it...

attempt to understand what you have been going through. Although a lot might not especially if they don't have kids themselves. Just think though, eventually you will feel better and you will have a pretty little girl and all of the suffering will be over with (well until she starts talking back lol) and you will have something that none of them do. I do hope that you get to have one though.
I am not having one and I don't mind at all really because I had one with each of the boys and we are out in the middle of nowhere with no family around and no friends so it really doesn't bother me... You deserve to have one!

that they have I am not sure what else I would want there for her... They do have plenty of cute little boy stuff too (for Richie) and I will definitely be making a trip over there to buy some cute stuff... They also have a ton of stuff that any department store would have (Clinique, perfume, bags, etc.) and I am totally going to go nuts!!!! My bday is also in November so I will be making a list of all of the stuff that I have been neglecting to buy over the last year because we have been on such a budget but the kids come first!
I am sure your friends would still show up at your shower and if they don't then they really aren't much of friends at all! I know how being sick the whole time you are preggers takes a toll on your relationship with everyone around you but they should still

LOL! Yeah we have a back up plan if it does happen in the next week but I don't see it happening... I am just going to go with the flow and try to stay off of my feet as much as possible for the next week (DH has the next 4 days off) so I am just trying to not stress about it. I am going to take Richie shopping with me for the first day or so because there is stuff that I need to get him too and then the rest I will be doing on my own. I don't mind... I am going to have to take breaks and such but at least with it just being me (a gf might go with me but she is like 32 weeks preggo too) I will be able to take breaks as much as I need. I ended up going to the base yesterday to buy DH's study program for his staff test tomorrow and I went to the BX and besides the really cute little clothes

Everyone puts up with it, Because if we have a go at her, she wont let us see our Nephews. Because she thinks we all hate her. Which is true, so we all ignore it whilst she is there so she doesnt take them away. I mean she took my Nephew away from his dad because he told her she needs to calm down for a while and stop drinking whilst she is PG. And she didnt let him see his own dad. I just wanna hit her. When I took her rubbish to the bin cause I would have hit her if I didn't leave, John pretended he had rubbish too and came and said Ignore her. One day I will tell her where to go. She wants to baby sit my baby every Thursday which is when my boyfriend baby sits her son? So she wont be looking after my baby some randomer would! So I said No!!... Hows you anyways?

it soon enough. She isn't going to be in a crib for quite a while and I am waiting to do the room to see if hubby is going to get moved to Missouri before the year is out or not because I don't see the point in painting and everything if all I am going to do is have to re-paint it in a month when she will probably be sleeping in our room still (I like to have them in my room until she can sleep through the night). DH did his re-enlistment today and it will either be this coming Tuesday or the Tuesday of the week after so no shopping until that goes through. He is also testing to become a staff srgt which means more $ and a higher basic housing allowance. I am having leg cramps, headaches, contractions and lots of cervical pressure so I am really hoping she decides to stay in 2 more weeks!

Hey! Don't feel dumb about starting to buy things... Being 24 weeks your little girl is "viable" and more than likely if she was born now (although it would still be awhile) she would be coming home eventually. If you buy one big thing (crib, pack n play, bassinet whatever) then you will avoid the situation that I am in right now and there will be less stress in the end. I know it seems kind of funny to have a bunch of baby stuff laying around without a baby to use it for but it will definitely be better in the end. You can always start small and buy clothes/socks/towels/etc. and then wait for your baby shower (if you are having a shower) and then buy the rest that you don't get afterwords. My MIL just sent us $150 to get our crib (it just went on sale at Walmart) so we will be ordering

There's 2 parts to this...
she done the same to her other brother with the scan AND LABOUR! she can pick and choose her scans cause her baby's nan is a Sonographer. And with the labour, she addmitted herself to hosp as she is preg will go into Delievery automatically. stayed untill my niece was born and got the first hold felt better and went home again. Its wrong.
Yesterday me and John went to the beach and shecame too and all she did was moan about pain and talk about her pregnancy saying I wanted a girl, if you have a girl i'll be annoyed! Erm I'm sorry I cant help your brothers sperm be boy sperm if it is a girl!! I'll tell it next time!! ...

Oh yeah! I def plan on an epidural (I actually had my appointment with the anesthesia last week) and hopefully she stays put long enough for me to get one. My labors have literally been cut in half with each baby and I need antibiotics for Group B Strep so hopefully I get to the hospital in time. I don't blame you for not wanting to go natural because it really is awful and painful!
Have you started buying stuff yet?

Did you get out to that movie?  I tried to see Eat, Pray, Love the other night with a couple of friends, but it was sold out.  I'm not sure if I'm going to get back to see it before they take it out of the theatres.  Oh well - things seem to come out so quickly on DVD these days!

I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling so crappy :(  I'm one of those annoyingly perky and feeling great women when I'm pregnant....aside from feeling icky during the first trimester, I always felt pretty good.  This last time, I was overdue and feeling like I could go another 40 weeks, it was crazy!!  Anyway.....even though I don't know what it's like to feel as lousy as it sounds like you do, I definitely sympathize and hope that it passes and you can fully enjoy the last half of your pregnancy!!!

Thanks lol! Yeah of course I decided not to have pain meds with Spencer and 8.5 pounds was an awful lot but I have a seriously high pain tolerance so I was really okay... The thing that got me was the back labor... I slept for like 8 hours straight after that (Spencer didn't room in with me because he had jaundice and they kept him under the lights) and it was the best sleep I ever had... With Richie I was like bring on the epidural and was in labor like 7 hours and I was up with him the rest of the day (he was born at 4:27 am on 4/2/07) with just taking short little naps with him on my chest =) Those are like the best moment ever! Danny will be home with Richie for the night I have to be in the hospital so I will get her all to myself!!! I'm excited!

Woke up with a snake on my head this morning! Was not happy. She got out TWICE, The person we brought her tank off failed to mention it was broken, so we covered it up for the time being, OH thought celotape would work??? LOL. So at 1 am she was out... we got her back in. We covered the whole up with wire mesh, againg OH though celotape would hold that in place, against a 2ft Python??? Anyways, 5am I woke up to go to the loo, and when I came back I saw my pens move then felt something (Thought it was a spider), turned on my light my lovely Python was there.... LOLx

There probably is - it seems that you can research anything online these days! - but I'm choosing not to worry about it because he's happy, healthy and active :)  I just hate how doctors bring this stuff up....and say they don't want to wait  to see your kid until their 9 month appointment....and then tell you that they're not really worried, LOL.  Gil has been smaller than Daniel from day one.....I didn't even gain as much weight with him as I did with Daniel (about 20lbs. total compared to the 30lbs. I put on with Daniel)..and then he was smaller when he was born.  He's just a smaller baby....and that's ok :)

Any big plans for the weekend?  We're doing a lot of visiting with friends...I'm looking forward to it :)

Yeah they never stopped my labor with Spencer but they stopped it 3 times with Richie. He weighed in at 6.5 pounds the first time and I am sure he would have been fine but he came out almost at 8 pounds too. I really don't care how much Marley weighs (7 or 8 pounds) as long as I make it in time to get the epidural! LOL!

Things are good!  Getting ready for Daniel to start school (junior kindergarten) next month.  I had to take Gil in for his 6 month check up (and immunization) today.  The doctor wants us to come back in a month because Gil's below average for weight - he weighs 15 lbs. 12.5 ozs. now and is 26.5 in. long.  He says he's not "worried" but wants to keep an eye on him.  He's totally healthy and thriving and eating fine...I think he's just a smaller kid.  Daniel was always tracking ahead of the pack for height (and is still tall for his age)...but I seriously think that Gil is just littler, you know?  My doctor was also suggesting that maybe my milk is starting to dry up, but I don't believe that....he seems satisfied after drinking his milk....
