Well tomorrow I have an appt with a (possibly) new OB. If I don´t like him better, I´ll stick to the previous one. One way or the other,

Christine - I'm so sorry your boss is being so hideous!!! (((HUGS))) That is so wrong! And now the BM issue. Scarry stuff. Eat lots of those fibrous green veggies. I hope your old boss comes through with a job for you. I'll be thinking good things to come for you.


Marianna - So glad you got to have some Mama time. It's really nice. Sorry about your sister. Breakups are seriously awful! Score on the hand-me-downs! That's great!


AFM - Nice mellow day today & I even got my yoga in! Yea!

christine, at this point i would go over her head and directly to HR or her supervisor. you've had problems with this woman before, right? from the way you described her before, i wouldn't be surprised if this is her exacting revenge for reporting her to HR before. this is ridiculous. i hope something works out for you.

Julie - Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm glad your dad was able to help you get things straightened out!


Noel - Love the new shirt - the color looks great on you!


Ella - Yes, my boss knows I'm PG, but that really has no impact on my student teaching. I can (and probably will) postpone ST (read below) but the only downside is that I'll have to pay for an extra semester of tuition whenever I complete it ($$$$).


Mari - Sounds like you had a delightful day at your parents! Sorry to hear about your sister but better she end things now than waste any more time with a guy who isn't right for her. The English tutoring should be a hit! I'm sure they're always looking for tutors.


Carly - I actually did go to HR yesterday and basically

Christine - Sorry things aren't working out the way you planned with work. I hope you're really OK with waiting on student teaching. It's gotta be tought whne you've worked so hard to now have to put it off. I imagine it'll be easier on you while PG not to juggle so much, so that's a plus. Have fun visiting your firend & her lil man!

Christine- I am sorry about everything that you are having to deal with right now. Just trust that everything will work out the way it is supposed to in the end. *Hugs*

Noel- I am sorry things are a bit rough for you and DH right now. I am glad you got a night out. I love your shirt, where did you get it from?

Mari- Mom's are the best, aren't they? I am glad you got to spend some time with your Mom. How did your apt go with the possibly new OB?

Hi to everyone else.

AFM- Yesterday I had my first doctors apt. It went well. She is sending me for a dating U/S on Tuesday because I told her I normally don't O until CD 17 or 18, and I've been charting since last November. I didn't even have to ask for one. That is one of the reasons I love my drs.

I have been feeling so crummy. Between the M/S and being totally exhausted. I don't want to eat anything anymore. But I have been because I know it is good for the baby. This weekend I slept until 11 am both days. I feel like I should be doing more stuff around here but it takes all my energy just to stay awake and keep up after my nieces and nephew.

Cheryl - My new purple shirt came off of the sale rack at Motherhood Maternity. Miraculously! Of course, even on sale it was still $20. I almost never spend that much, but it was too cute to pass up. :) Yea!! For the U/S. That'll be great! Sorry you're feeling crummy, but good that you're eating anyway. It's good for you & will minimize the nausea to keep eating anyway. You may even find that some foods help more than others. The 1T is very taxing, so don't fret about not getting more done. You'll catch up later when your energy returns.


I'll definitely get to sleep earlier tonight. I'm about to drop right now!

Christine- i´m glad you are "at peace" with how things worked out. I think it will be nice for you to have more time, so you and DH can enjoy this PG and the baby. Good luck!


Cheryl- Thanks for asking!! It went really well (see below). I´m sorry you are having such a hard time with m/s, it is really awful. Just try not to force yourself

Christine - I am so sorry for all these storms hitting you at once. I think that you having a stable job and your insurance is a very good thing. I hate that you didn't get to do what you wanted to do intially, and that your boss is so ridiculous. As you know I too have a very difficult boss as well and I have had my share of turmoil with her. GL and I hope you find peace with the decisions you have been forced to make. Your DH is such a good man standing by you like that and letting you know that he supports you 100% that is exactly what my DH would say and has done for me in the past.


Noel - Very cute pics and that is a really nice shirt. It looks really comfortable. I too went to the Motherhood store over my vacation and I spent about $175.00 and I got a few dresses and a really cute skirt and some black slacks that I will be able to wear all winter and a really cute top. I have gotten some nice tops at Walmart that tie in the back and they were only $9 each so I can even out the spending that way.


AFM - Nothing new really! My mother, sisters and niece went home yesterday. It is really weird not having them around especially my youngest sister who took care of my girls all summer. She really misses them and they really miss her. I wish she could have stayed because it was nice having her around. My mother, sisters and niece are probably the only people that visit that I hate to see go. I could live with them anytime. Next week my DD#1 starts Kindergarten and her little sister goes back to daycare. I will be back to driving all over the place taking them to and from school and getting to work. DH is supposed to be moving from the night shift back to day shift so that will be nice to have him there in the evenings especially when the baby is born.
