I don't post often but you ladies are the only ones I can rant to about this. So here goes!
Ugh, it's the first of a ten day visit and I'm already annoyed, which, sometimes isn't hard to do, lol. We have DH's brother, wife, two boys, and daughter staying with us so, of course, all the other family is here in the house too during the day and it's driving me nut here. We are all adults, most of us that it, here and should common respect and manners but noooo. They keep opening all the window coverings and letting in the HOT sun or turning on the lights and of course leaving them on. Really, how much light do you need to sit around a table to talk???? DH's sister and her older kids (14, 15, and 18) can't ever seem to wash their hands (w/out being told) before putting them on every food item laid out for lunch. She also never chips in anything to feed her family when we have gatherings. For once it would nice for her to ask if she could bring anything. Also, master bathrooms are master bathrooms for a reason. If the spare is being used WAIT your turn or ASK before trumping through OUR bedroom to use the OUR bathroom. AHHH!!! I think that it for now but I'm sure there will a lot more with another 9 days ahead.View Thread
I don't really have any advice but I so competely understand. I feel the exact same way you do. Especially when it comes to free time and parenting not coming natural. DH and I are thinking of trying for another next June and I know that's almost a year away but with how time flies by lately I know it will be here in no time and it scares me to death. I wish there was an easy answer. Don't feeling guilty if you're not ready yet. It's easy for a man to be ready since they don't do much of the hard work. View Thread
DS just recently started saying more words and he's 21 months. He did have a decent vocab. before but really never used them. Now he says more and tries to hold a conversation. I know what you mean though. It still seems like a lot more kids around his age can "talk" more. DS is always on the go so I think that has something to do with it too.View Thread
Have her look into what her State has to offer. Here were we live there is a plan offered for pregnant women without insurance or coverage for it. They have you pay anywhere from about 20-50 a month for the insurance and you also pay for co-pays and a deductible based off of your income and how many dependents you have including the unborn child.View Thread
I was told to run a little water, only, over it. No baths and no direct spray from the shower. He also said to let it air dry. I didn't have staples though. So I probably had to be more careful. It paid off though. You can't really even see a scar from the c/s.View Thread
I'm in your boat (of sort) with TTC #2. Right now I don't have insurance so that pretty much keeps me from really thinking too much about it. I figured though if his insurance premiums are affordable this year to add me on then I'll probably get my IUD out in July/August and give my body a few months to adjust then start TTC. That's what I did with the pill so we'll see. Otherwise I'll be waiting another year. GLView Thread
