Vent/ Rant: Sooo... last night hubby waltz in the door and ask me if his mom had been seen yet... I'm like... wha?! He then proceeds to tell me that his mom is at the hospital with "chest pains". I'm all like :roll: because she's the type to need to be center of attention. I guess between Liam and my SIL's wedding... she couldn't handle it. :oops: Then they proceed to tell us OMG its a blood clot in the lungs!! OH NO! :? Only to find out that they hadn't even done the test to see if that's what it is. So now... my MIL (Chicken Little) is saying the sky is falling, and still, no one has told me (except hubby obviously) that she is even at the hospital. She then gets mad at me for "keeping her son from being by her side".... Look lady, he chose not to go, he's a big boy. Stop being a hypochondriac and shut up! If she would just loose some weight this wouldn't be an issue. (Now before ppl get mad for that last bit, she gets on the elliptical everyday for an hour JUST so she can eat an extra 1000 calories.... and not even good food, she does it so she can eat more sweets.... which common sense tells you wont help) UGH! Can I divorce JUST my in laws? Good GAWD I can't handle this mess. My head is going to explode.



I am praying this baby comes on the 13th. She will be out of town and I don't have to worry about her nosey ass... I think I am turning into an agoraphobic. I just don't want to be around anyone except DH because everyone else is too damn nosey, dramatic or bitchy. I quit at life. Here is my resignation... I am just going to be a mom from now on. I resign all other postions. :oops:

Dylan's: Well this baby was planned so I made sure we could afford everything before having another. I wouldn't normally even accept another shower but they weren't able to go to DD1's shower (we lived in PA at the time) so I'm ok with a small shower this time for them to get a chance to celebrate. It won't be about the gifts though. We seriously don't need anything besides the crib and car seat... which I could have bought ourselves but they wanted to so whatevers haha. We probably won't get tons anyway, most are struggling right now plus Hubby's cousin is due near me so she'll probably be a main focus since she's blood related not just married related.



Eri: Ack, that blows! My father and sister have planned to come down the first week of august... and I may not go over due but I may (would have with DD1 if they left me alone)... I'm not looking forward to having to entertain while adjusting to an almost 4yo and a newborn >_< But thankfully I like my Dad and sister so I'll just tell them to get over it if they say anything haha. I hope things turn out well for you. *hug*



Susan: I hear that! DH's cousin is due 5wks after me but she's having a repeat c-section and it's scheduled for 4wks after I'm due... so if I can go over... that'll be less... lol I'll cross my legs for as long as I can HAHA



Lindsey: Jealous. My crouch/butt/legs have been hurting for MONTHS and just has gotten worse the heavier she gets. I dunno how I'll walk in a month haha.



Preparing: I cleaned half the house yesterday... I need to do the other half today... then I guess I can pack a small back for us. But I have to wait until my shower to really do much... which is the beginning of July. I'm praying I don't go into labor before that, though I doubt I will. We'll just have to figure something out if I do I suppose. >_<



Hospital: I have a feeling the whole of DH's family will be at the hospital in the waiting room... everyone was there for his cousin's birth and it literally lasted all day since she was induced... oh well, they'll just have to stay in the waiting room. No one will be in there while I'm pushing besides DH and my doula.

Mine was hurting for months too but i have a bit of relief now. my hips and lower back are still killing me but like i said the whole left leg thing is better which was the worst part of it all.



I dont know what is with people wanting to wait around in a waiting room all day. Why not just come to the hospital when baby is born. Or keep in touch adn come when its close. Its differant if they are allowed in the room and can visit with you and such but to just sit out in a room all day...id rather sit at home haha

She showed up?! At your door? Omg, my family has its annoyances. Namely they don't come or show up to anything, but I can completely see how constantly showing up would be equally annoying.

People keep talking about their family bothering them... All it does is make me miss my own who live in another state. Id give anything to have my mom here.

I think it all depends on the mother... if she wants the support then I will be there (on my computer). My SIL just had a baby born very premature and we were there because of how scared she was.

It isnt the same without them. my mom even stayed the night in the hospital after my sons birth... I had no idea just how important that was to me...

I hear that. My family is in PA and my Dad's in Va... I live in LA... :( I miss them very much but haven't seen them in almost a year and won't for quite a while... My dad and sister are coming in august but my Mom and Gram can't fly down here... and I can't fly up there until tax return time. $800 is a lot of money, plus I can't imagine flying that far with a newborn anyway.

It's weird because I can understand this too. My dad is 22 hrs away :( We are very close. He won't be able to fly out for about a month because my little brother has his smer visitation with him until then (we are 9 yes apart). He was the ONLY person there for DS. No one else cared then.... But now everyone I want to leave me alone wants to be there but the one person I do want can't be there. It sucks!

I can buy my mothers ticket for her but I cant afford my nieces (my mom is raising her). I live in PA and she is in Texas, I just wanna be there back home.... I can cry about it all I want but I know it doesnt fix anything.

I hear that. I couldn't fly my Mom down if I had the money anyway, she's paralyzed from the neck down and requires too much equipment to just fly down. :(
