Sorry I’ve been MIA. I was going to just pop in and post the other day but I wanted to go back and read what I missed first. Don’t really have much to say if I don’t know what you ladies are up to. But don’t you know as soon as I started reading someone asked me to do something at work. I think I’m going to start a petition for a 15 minute forum break. I mean people get smoke breaks. Can I get a forum break!?!?!? This is crazy. All this work and no posting is making wanna an unhappy camper. And no one wants that. LOL
Now on to personals:
—I am so excited for you. That was an excelled fart report. You get an A+ for that one! The story about your transfer was awesome. I think you did the right thing about not bothering the others. Twins would be great, if I don’t say so myself. LOL Now just take it easy and relax for the next week or so. Drink pineapple juice. Not sure if that helps but I read somewhere that it did and I drank it. LOL Also, rest and relax. Bed rest isn’t a must but just chill out. I think I sat in the bed for a day and a half. Once the next day came I was so ready to do something. But then again I think I have undiagnosed ADHD. I can’t sit still for too long.
—How goes it? So are you excited to be single again? WOW…I was just reflecting back on my single days. WHEW…if walls could talk. It was nice having my own place, own car and come and go as I please. Hanging out all night. Dating different guys. Free dinners. Ahhh, the life. But nope, I don’t miss it one bit….rolling eyes now… Glad to hear you and DH can still be friends. So I’m assuming he’s going to be in the baby’s life if you get pregnant by one of your popsicles.
—Love the nicknames for the twins. It’s funny you picked out the names butterbean and peanut. My niece is currently calling them peanut butter and jelly. My mom is calling them her two little sweet peas and another friend of mine is calling them Mindy and Carlos. All of the names crack me up. It will be nice when we find out the sexes, and then their nicknames may be more fitting. Glad to hear all of that stuff is over with your bum. Sorry I wasn’t around to cheer you on. Blame it on the slave drivers I work for. Also, while catching up on my reading I didn’t see anything about Grey’s Anatomy finale. I was not happy with it at all. I won’t talk about it just in case you haven’t seen it yet. But if you have let me know your thoughts.
—I know I’m late but I love Root Beer floats. I haven’t had one in so long but I think I’m going to get one. We have an A&W by my house so I might just have to make a stop on the way home. Ohh, a Root beer float and a chili dog sounds good. But I don’t think I’m suppose to eat hotdogs. Maybe chili fries. It’s amazing how I don’t have any cravings until someone mentions a food or until I see it. I don’t want anything in particular until it is discussed. LOL That sucks about you not having any more scans. But I guess that’s a good thing and that means our little girl is doing just fine. I am currently being seen by my regular OBGYN every two weeks and the specialist every month. Not sure how long that will last though. Even though I see them every two weeks it’s still not enough. I guess we are never satisfied. I have another appointment with the specialist (who has the cool 3d ultra sound machine) tomorrow. I’m hoping we can find out the sexes tomorrow. If they cooperate. WOW, that dream sounds crazy. I wouldn’t have gone back to sleep after that. That’s a scary one. Have you been eating before going to bed or watching any crazy movies?
—Don’t feel bad, both of our little ones had their backs to us at the last ultrasound. Not one but both. Not much to see but I got a good glimpse of their spines and their heads. LOL I’m hoping they turn around for us tomorrow. I’m assuming they are having some movement in my tummy. Not that I can feel them but because I am still having morning (all day) sickness off and on. It’s the worse. But the doctor told me that I feel sick because they are moving. Not sure if that’s the case but hey..I’ll go with it. LOL It makes me feel pregnant but it sucks because I can’t eat anything or can’t keep anything down. It probably happens at least 3 times a week. As opposed to every day earlier in the pregnancy. Wow, that is so cool that the docs are 80% that Noggin is a boy. Have you thought of any names yet? Do you have a preference of boy or girl? I would have to agree with the others. Suck it up and put on some maternity clothes. They are to die for. They are so comfy. I love them. But they can be a little pricey. I will post a link to where I found some inexpensive maternity clothes.
—I’m a lot like you. I would have gone to work also. I’m the responsible on in the office. But you best to believe everyone would have heard my mouth. LOL I would have complained or given someone the guilt treatment. They probably would have sent me home after a while. LOL Glad to see you recovered your trash bin. The nerve of some people. They will take or misplace anything. Maybe the trash guys got bored and were having some fun. Nice to have you back. I know I have nerve. I’ve been away from the sisterhood and haven’t even been on vacation.
—Now this b@tch that you call a friend is really pissing me off. I think you need to tell her where to go. Or better yet, give me her number so I can tell her where to go on your behalf. She has a lot of f@@cking nerve. Wanting two baby showers. Some people just can’t be happy with what others do for them. They have to be in control and want to delegate. Hell, all she needs is cake and punch. As a matter of fact I would make her a homemade Dunkin Hines cake straight from the box and a pitcher of kool-aid. There’s her damn cake and punch right there. She has a lot of nerve. Damn witch. Oh and how ironic that she was about to get a divorce and is now pregnant. So did the pregnancy cure the problems in the marriage. Was the makeup sex that good that she got pregnant. Gimme a freaking break. I am sitting here making her crown for punter of the month and YEAR! What a dork!
—How are you? How’s the shaved dog? We will have to find you something to do with your extra time now that you don’t have to sweep up dog hair. I can totally relate on the disappearing posts. So now what I do is type my post in another window like my email or a word document and then I copy and paste. If it disappears I still have it in my other window. I don’t delete it until I can see that it successfully posts.
—You’re anniversary trip sounded so romantic and wonderful. I’m so jealous. I really really really want to go somewhere. I have the fever really bad. Sorry to hear you are not ovulating. What is the next step?
Ok, nothing new with me. I’m very much showing now. I wear larges (was a small/medium) before I got pregnant. My belly button is way out there. It’s so funny to see if poking thru my shirt. Sometimes I look pregnant and sometimes I don’t. It depends on what I wear. The maintenance man at my job asked me if I was expecting the other day. I was going to say no just to see the look on his face but I didn’t have the heart. LOL He’s such a nice guy.
I’m constantly worrying about my little ones. Some days I’m so happy that I look pregnant and then the next day I think, I’m not growing enough. It’s never ending. I am anxiously waiting the day that I feel them move or kick.
DH and I were going away for the holiday weekend. We were going to drive to Atlanta to see family and friends. DH made me call OBGYN to see if it was okay to take that 10 hour drive. OBGYN said it was fine but I would have to get out and walk every hour or so. DH was not happy about that. He said we would never get there so that trip is cancelled. So then the next day I was offered a chance to go to Hawaii. A friend of the family is going on business and all I would have to do is pay for my ticket. So of course I jumped at the chance. Asked OBGYN if it was okay to take the very long flight. He said yes as long as I get up and walk around and I’m careful. SO I commenced the search for a ticket. Mind you this is a last minute trip and less than 7 days booking. I can’t find a reasonable ticket anywhere. But I’m thinking…who cares? When am I going to get the chance to go to Hawaii again? But then I start talking to DH and he really doesn’t want me to go. He’s so worried about me and the twins. He doesn’t think it’s a good idea. He doesn’t want me to fly or take a long car ride anywhere. This of course is driving me nuts because I love to travel. We travel at least twice a year. Last year it was three times. Other family members are concerned also. The twins come first, which I understand. So I told him I wouldn’t go but we are going somewhere together for a long weekend in the next couple of months. I can’t take this. I have vacation fever like crazy. I know the twins come first and I don’t want to be selfish but if the doctors say it’s okay, then…why not? Also, DH was outside talking to our neighbor the other day and the neighbor told DH that last year his wife was 6 months pregnant and they took a car trip to FL. Now from where we live that’s probably a 16 hour drive. But neighbor said they broke it up in 8 hours. They even stopped and stayed overnight somewhere. Well long story short neighbor’s wife lost the baby. The question is did the trip cause the miscarriage or was something else wrong. But anyway, now of course DH is freaked out. Ho doesn’t want me to go anywhere. I hate when people tell you stories like that. Especially to someone that is currently expecting. You notice how you only hear the sad stories. What about the good ones where someone was 7 months pregnant and she took a 10 hour flight and she and the baby were just fine. ARGH!! I hate when people bare bad news and try to scare the crap out of you. I guess they call themselves trying to help but if you can’t say anything good then shut the hell up and mind your business.
Then another neighbor tells us that her twins WOULD HAVE been 32 this year. Okay, that’s all she said. We didn’t ask and she didn’t elaborate but my thought is, why the hell did you mention it to us if you weren’t going to into further detail? But then again do we want more details? Probably not, but you can’t help but to wonder what happened to her twins. ARGH…why don’t people just shut up.
Ok, that’s my rant for the day.
Sorry this post was so long.
