Good morning to our amazing married ladies!!! Here's our weekly thread!
Hi Becca, and all you ladies!
Sorry I haven't been as active here lately -when we got back from our trip (which was really fun but BUSY running around introducing Megan to everyone!) Megan came down with a cold and she's still a snotty, coughing mess :( I think she's definitely taking after me since it takes me FOREVER to get over colds. Since I'm dealing with a sick baby we don't have much planned for this week really. There's an event on Saturday that we're going to -it's basically a ginormous garage sale -250 tables! I'm going to be on the hunt for outdoor toys like a little slide and maybe swing set :)
My parents are coming to visit at the beginning of May and I'm really excited for that. My mom has been here twice but it'll be the first time my dad has seen our house since we bought it in October :) My cousin is getting married in June and I decided that Megan & I (and Bella the dog) will go back with my parents, go to the wedding and stay with my parents until my DH comes in July. The original plan was that me, Megan, DH and our dog would drive to my parents' just before Megan's 1st birthday (July 12th) and DH would drive back a week later and Megan & I would stay for a few more weeks. That would involve Megan & I flying back though and I wasn't really into dealing with a baby and car seat and the rest of our stuff through the airport and on the plane. So we figured that it would make sense that we go with our parents -it does mean that we'll be away from DH for about 7 weeks!! That's crazy long :( but we don't get to see my parents very much since we're a 19 hour drive away. So I'm looking forward to being at my parents' cottage for a part of the summer, including my baby's 1st birthday!!! SO excited for that :) and I know my DH isn't too heartbroken since it means he can golf whenever he wants without an having a mad wife giving him dirty looks when he says he gets asked every weekend to play ;)
Hope everyone has a great week :)
I'm so sorry that Megan hasn't been well - colds really do know how to linger!! I hope that she gets better soon! FX you'll find a slide and swing set. Sounds like a fun sale to go to :)
So excited that your parents are coming over to visit! :) Will they be staying for long?
Wow, 7 weeks will be a long time to be away from DH but it'll be so good to see him after that time and you can Skype, etc! Megan would've grown so much in that time!
I've not got too much to report - I've been super hormonal and it's taken it's toll on DH and he let rip this morning and has been a bit assy in messages today so bleh! LOL. Other than that, I heard the baby's heartbeat yesterday and I go in for tests on Thursday. I'm really gutted that DH hasn't made it to one appointment. I seem to be the only person who goes alone and it's made me feel a little upset. Is that normal? I know DH can't get the time off work but still.
Other than that there's really nothing else to report!
Hope you all have a lovely week!
Jenny -My parents will be staying about 2 weeks :) I'm sorry about the hormones... and that I'm afraid they'll only get worse! Having the baby doesn't help either -there are still times when I'm watching a commercial or movie and I get choked up lol. As for the dr.'s appts, you are definitely not alone. My DH came to the very first, the gender scan, a follow up scan a week later because they couldn't get an accurate measurement of her spine, and the last two. That's IT! Because the dr.'s office was only open during the day on weekdays and DH was always too busy at work *:(* I had to make my way from my work on my break on the bus and then back to work afterwards. I worked a split shift and was off from about 12:30 pm-3:10 pm -seems like more than enough time to catch a bus, go to appt, then catch another back again and most of the time it was fine, but there were a few times that I had to call my supervisor to cover for me (I worked at a daycare and had to meet the kids at their school to walk them back to the centre.) It also wasn't much fun toward the end when I was huge and we had a heatwave in May and June was pretty much one long heatwave! One time I guess my dr. was with someone else and a resident brought me into the room and checked all the basics then went to get the dr and never came back -I waited in the room for about an hour and finally had to leave without seeing her because I was going to be late for work -I was so mad! So yes, lol I was pretty much in the same position as you. I guess he figured it was pointless to go just so that they could check my weight and blood pressure and get a urine test haha but he also didn't seem to care that he was missing out on hearing the heartbeat :( I completely understand how you feel! Now I'm getting mad at him just remembering haha.
Having kids really changes things (for better and worse) from what I've heard doesn't it?! It's so nerve wracking!!
It seems to be a tense week for people. I got really mad at DH this morning because he seems to be just watching TV all day instead of applying for jobs. I know he just doesn't know which direction to go in, but he can't keep putting it off. I just hope I don't come home tonight and it's the same as yesterday. He needs a little more sense of urgency in order to get a job.
Nothing else going on this week. I am in between classes, so that is nice. I got an A in my business law class so I'm pretty happy about that. Other than all of that, just plugging away, having fun and working.
Steph, have a great time with your parents, and yea 7 weeks is a long time!! But make sure you enjoy the family time :)
Jenny, sorry you're dealing with your appointments alone and the hormones are all over the place. It may feel like you're the only one going through it that way -but that's never the case. Sending you hugs!!
Thank you ladies!!! I really aprreciate it.
Before I read Steph's message I lashed out on DH - I know it's not his fault and work is priority re the appointments but I just completely threw myself out there. I was annoyed that he was assy with me etc. LOL. I now I've put myself in a little hole by making the situation worse. I think we both just need time out.
You're so right Elise and we don't have kid yet!!! HAHA.
Hopefully something will help motivate your DH soon... my friend was in a similar position but once he got tired of watching TV after a few weeks he finally realised he needed to do something about it. I don't know why but guys really are so much more relaxed in "getting a job done." Well done on getting an A in class - that's awesome news!!
Hope you guys enjoy the last few days before Easter!! :-)
