Ugh hate living w other ppl! My step dad ate/drank 3 months of groceries in a week or less. Mom got smart n started freezing it all n bought a lock box for my closet when we lived w them. Same w my in laws. There was never leftovers, no snack foods. Now that we're on our own I'd hate to ever have roommates. My friend in PA complains about hers all the time.



Aww hand on the head- maybe baby will be a little dramatic?! Cute pics btw!



So yesterday afternoon this super skinny (see all its bones) black female pit n maybe lab mix?! puppy wandered in our yard. No collar just beads around the neck. Hubby went door to door but no one claims her. She's at the most 8wks old. We posted ads but hubby is already attached lol she follows him. Aside from being way undernourished she's healthy and friendly. Fingers crossed no one claims her. 6 days to go. And tday we're taking our yorkie to our friends to see how she gets along w their dogs bc they're interested in adopting her. And still no one wants a bunny. I bet we keep all 13 of them. Oy! Talk about having a zoo!!!



On another note- anyone else having problems w their legs at night? Mine like can't get comfy, need to stretch out every few mins, twitch if they don't. And no more sleeping on my back- cannot breathe lol midwife appt tues- 30wks! Ahhhhhhhh!!!!

Aww, too cute! Look at those cheeks!!! :D
Reminds me of my last pregnancy.. he always, ALWAYS had his hands over his face. My last ultrasound with this one, she also had her hands over her face lol but usually she'll wave to the camera for us. :P

Yeah, I don't think I'd ever be able to have roommates again. I'm so used to having my own place with just me and my fiance'.. I enjoy being able to walk through the house in my underwear and not have to worry about anyone seeing me (except for maybe my neighbor, he's a dirty old man lol). I've always had issues with every roommate I've ever had, and I've never moved in with just random people that I didn't know beforehand (maybe that was the problem, though lol).. maybe I'm just a b***h, but I don't like people eating my food or invading my space.



I love pits, I have a pitbull/terrier mix.. unfortunately I can't really say I "love" him because I think there's seriously something wrong with him. He's so damn hyper and in your face, he will literally walk right under your feet all day, when you sit down he sits down right in front of you, facing you, and whines until you pet him or play with him. It never stops! I'm getting so tired of it and I keep telling my SO we need to get him trained before the baby gets here, because I'll be damned if he wakes her all because he wants some attention. :roll:



And your bunnies and dogs aint shit compared to what my brother used to have hahah, he had six snakes, five turtles, a cat, a dog, a prairie dog (yes.. a prairie dog) and.. I dunno what else. He had a total of 23 pets at one point, it was nuts! lmao I don't think I'd ever be able to handle all those animals.. I can't even handle the dumb dog we have now.



Have you tried sleeping with a body pillow? It's the only way I can sleep anymore. I usually cuddle up to it and kinda put my belly on top of it with the rest of it between my legs, otherwise my legs will feel restless and I'll be tossing and turning all night. Laying on my back is a no-go for me as well, I feel like she's crushing my lungs lol.

I was surprised my kids slept through the dogs barking esp at night as infants n even last night they were out cold n we had a lil party going on. Baby might sleep through that would be nice! I'm praying for a non colicky baby this time around. Dd2 had it til she turned 9 months. Lol 23?! Holy sh*t! Yea we've got 21 right now. I have a body pillow but honestly I prefer hubby's hip. He lays on his right side, I lay on mine, lift n hook my leg over his tall thigh n let Aaron kick his back all night. Oh! I forgot, they set a date for the appraisal- 3.29. So after that we close on land like 4 wks after, but right away we hammer out final touches to the house before we order it.

Yeah, I heard if you don't try to always be so quiet when baby's sleeping, they become way heavier sleepers as they get older and you don't have to worry about them waking up to every sound. But my dog is so damn loud! He whines for attention and often starts barking, then he does this thing with the bones we give him.. he'll go in our dining room, which has hardwood floors, and drop his bone on the floor and slide it around and make all this noise. Drives me crazy! If my LO can sleep through that, she'll be able to sleep through anything lol.



And wow, 21 really isn't far from what my brother had lol I didn't realize you had so many. Sounds like you have your hands full! I couldn't do it. And at least you can cuddle your hubby.. I can't cuddle mine, he gets so damn hot when he sleeps.. I'll wake up stuck to him from sweating in the middle of the night lmao. And congrats! That's awesome! :) Sounds like you got a lot to do before LO gets here.

I can't deal with the sweating lol he used to be a lot worse, we'd wake up and the sheets would be soaked (he had really bad night terrors for a while after our son passed, I think that had a lot to do with it), but it's not nearly as bad now.. still too hot for me though!
And I have a lot to do as well as far as planning for LO goes.. I feel like I don't have anything, I STILL don't have her room set up. Ugh. I'm a slacker. :?

Just caught up on the thread, you ladies made me laugh. 20 something pets is definitely extreme. I can't even handle two, and we have three. Luckily my brother is a pet hoarder so they really just stay with him all the time in his room. Since i'm moving down to the garage studio I don't have to deal with anybody else and certainly won't be having any dogs around my baby. My brother doesn't train the dogs so they are really just all over the place and blech. My mom wants me to get my own fridge in there but it'll still need to be a small one so we'll see about it.



My dad just put in an some a/c and is getting the walls painted which is the last step and I can finally get in there and clean and sanitize before I start moving stuff in there. Still alot of work and with my previa situation still not followed up on i'm worried about whether its improved so I can start doing things. I've kinda been lifting and bending and walking anyway so lets hope I didn't make things worse.



I went to the 4D place yesterday to do the ultrasound and she was SO uncooperative. She gave me one photo and it's not even worth putting up here. I don't know how they deal with the weird positions that they are in? But she had one leg up and her foot was resting on top of her head and the other leg was down. So she was basically doing the splits. It was so freaking weird. So of course you couldn't see her face. I tried to go to the bathroom to see if she moves into a better position and did some walking because she prefers an empty bladder I think. By the time we came back she had her back turned to us, still doing the splits. We just assumed she was tired and cranky and not in the mood. DAMN!!!



So they told me to come back within the week to see if she hopefully cooperates. Pleaseeeeee let her cooperate!! Ugh.. I can't stand not being able to see her.



I dunno, I've been pretty pooped lately because of the whole car buying thing. We did end up upgrading our car for a nicer one and I'm really happy with it. We were losing so much sleep and stressing out about it, and it's not even as important as you guys getting your houses. I can't even imagine being in your shoes!

They have a cat, yorky, colly, and 9 hounds. its hectic. But half of them are kept outside. We also have a snake but it isnt a bother lol.

Aww, hopefully she cooperates for you next time! My 4D ultrasound is in two days and I'm sooo excited! My SO won't shut up about it either lmao. I'm happy he's excited though, sometimes I think he's more excited than I am. Did you go to your appointment with an empty stomach? The lady at the 4D place I go to told me not to eat two hours prior and to drink something with caffeine/sugar beforehand. I hope my Layla cooperates on Wednesday.. I already have an idea of what she looks like because the clinic I go to will do some 3D pics, but I wanna see what she looks like now after five weeks of not seeing her (my last ultrasound was at 23 weeks). I'll definitely be posting every picture up here for you guys to see. :)

Just got my results back from my glucose test that I took last Thursday.. I failed it by 6 pts. I am so ticked off. I didn't eat all morning and the ONLY liquid I had was the little bit of water that I took my pills with. Now I get to do the 3 hour test along with a special 3 day diet they want me to eat. Im so over this pregnancy.. It has been nothing but complication after complication. :( I am ready for my sweet girl to be here and this crap be over.
