I remembered in thinking about my ridiculous non-baby related rant that we used to have a spot for things like that!

How about a Mommy check in?

Name (DH/SO Name):

What's your current occupation?

Tell us a work story (SAHM's, get creative!)

How are things with DH/SO?

Yeah I wanted between 2 and 3 now its looking more like four. Cause with us moving Matt and I honestly won't be back together in the same place until May 12. So Simon will almost be 2.5 by then. And we now figure its probably best for him to have a job before we start trying. By then I will have been at my job for almost a year. So if we are lucky it will be May and baby number 2 would show up at earliest Feb 13 making Simon just over three I guess. It will probably be better in the long run because he will be so much more independent.

Another bummer, I did some prelim looking, it doesn't look like there are any MW in the area we are moving too! I did the OB thing the first round and though I would do a MW the second since things went so well with Simon and it doesn't look like it will happen. Now I can just hope I can find a non pushy OB about certain things.

Hang in there, Cassie. You never know what will happen. I mean look at where you are compared to just a few months ago!

As for the MW, how far would you have to drive to see one? Worse case scenario, I would try to have a doula if you have to go with the OB. I know I love my MW way much more than the OBs in her practice. Oh, can you find out if there's a moms group through meetup.com or something like that? Maybe someone could give you a reference. You could even contact the local LLL group. I'm sure they'd have some names for you. GL!

Cassie I wanted to ttc jus before David turned 2 but with our debt I have to wait also until nxt summer. And I have baby fever but we would not be able to afford it if we ttc before the debt is pd off. I totally understand a new job. DH would not TTC until I was at my job 6 mos and then I had to wait until Dec 08 otherwise I would not have been eligible for FMLA. I had baby fever for over a yr the first time but dh was not ready. He is not ready now either but more financial and wants them at least 3 yrs apart. I would have liked 2.5 but due to the finances it will be 3 to 3.5.

I checked a 60 mile radius for a MW under the insurance company I should be having. There just isn't anyone like that out there. We have lots of PA's but not MW. And I can already tell you outside of our health department there isn't an LLL group. And my current town doesn't have any people on that website so I can pretty well bet that my new one won't. LoL I'm not going to worry about it to much. I know a little better what to expect so maybe I can push a little harder. I mean I didn't do anything I didn't want to with Simon.

So apparently someone I confided in at the store has been running there mouth. I hope I'm not hauled into the office when I go back on my Monday. I really wish I had the official its yours already so I could just be honest with her. I have a plan in my head. I'm just afraid if I tell her to much she will make my life miserable until I leave.

So after spending the last two weekends spending a night out camping I think that 3 is going to be a good deal. Mostly for DH who can't seem to handle the fact that Simon is a toddler and we have to teach him and that its going to take a while. He is coming to the point where he realizes he can't control and do what he wants and he is going to start pushing back. He isn't even tot the nasty tempers yet.

WTT - We talked and if everything works out, looks like we'll TTC late 12 - I do NOT want another winter baby.

LLL - My nearest one is some 40 minutes away Cassie. The BF group I go to is run by the LC's at the hospital (granted that's 30 minutes away), but it is wonderful. I wouldn't trade it for anything. You'll just have to check everything out... you never know you might be surpirsed by what you find or experience.

Cassie - That sucks that word got out. I'd be real careful what you tell your coworkers from here on out. They're probably jealous that you're getting out of there!

Kate - Based on all the meds your DH is on, I would definitely have him see a doc about it. When my DH was on a high dose for his BP, it affected his performance. That coupled with his occasional flareup

Argh, phone posted before I was ready!

...that coupled with his occasional flareup of prostaitis really put a damper on things. I have the opposite problem...my DH finishes the game too soon, most of the time, but every once in awhile I get lucky and it lasts a little longer. ;-)
