Dude, that all sounds really harsh Vast sympathies, and I imagine you may be right that your frustration and upset about all of that is being siphoned into the easy target :\ Is there anything that can be done about your aunt basically stealing money? Either way, condolences.
Haha!! I know! Leaking!!!?? I am NOT looking forward to that!! Did you have the protection before it started happening Panda? Or did it suprise you while you were out shopping? Oh my word that would be devastatingly embarassing!
I'm going out just now to get some stuff for the office, and I'm going to buy myself some more pregnancy tests I'm dying to see if the line is getting any darker! I haven't tested since Tuesday, so it should be!!
It was when I was about 18 weeks I think. Thankfully it had the decency to happen at night time. I sleep on my front and I think the pressure just set them off. I woke up feeling all damp and had an awful moment where I thought I'd peed myself. I padded myself down and realised all the sticky damp was located around my chest. Now it happens randomly so I have to wear the pads out and about. I try to give myself a break from them on an evening but it's very annoying if I'm sat watching TV and realise I've been leaking everywhere. No one tells you these things before you get pregnant!
As for my family, well I think a lot of the money is long gone - on holidays, laptops and other stupid things from what we can gather. I think the overall sadness for me is that my grandma was adopted, all the money came from her adoptive parents. Towards the end of her life she spent a lot of time trying to find her real family with no avail. For all she was a little tight with money (hence why she had so much) I think she'd be really sad to realise that her kids swapped the one thing she never had (family) for a pot of gold. No one will speak again after this, I'm sure. I've never taken much interest in the wealth at that side of the family but I have to say, now I'm in a position that my kids would have one day had that money coming to them I'm a little angry. Knowing my cousins will get it for their kids etc... I'm also angry for my father, because the ones stealing the money all had plenty of it themselves to begin with.
I think it's awful that a funeral is a few days away and frankly I have no idea if people are going to be able to stand in the same room to pay their respects without saying what they think. My partner has never met any of them so I think he's in for a bit of a shock on Tuesday to say the least.
Alcoholism is very difficult Plastik. My uncle on my mother's side was an alcoholic. He was a nice guy but he just didn't want to stop. In the end it came between him and his kids and ultimately it was responsible for his death in his 50s. It seems to me that you can offer all the help in the world but you can't expect them to change, they need to want to do it themselves. The problem with situations like that is it just hurts so many people. I remember my mum was devastated.
Gosh. Have just booked myself onto 3 courses for work (all paid for by work so yay!). Working it out, I will be (assuming things continue ok etc):
20 wks for the first course
21 wks for the second course
28 wks for the third course
Panda, as my guru for these things, with how you are feeling now, do you think you could handle yomping into London for a full day training course? Am still going to book in for it but am a bit nervous for how much hard work it might be?
Geeze JustMe!! Ambitious little tyke aren't you!! I'm sure if it's only a one day course each time you will be able to cope. Just make sure you rest up well before the course!!
Well, I bought some hpt and of course couldn't resist. It's way more fun now that I know I'm going to see two lines! I've been drinking tea and water non-stop today, but the line was definately darker than it was on Tuesday morning! I've got another two so I'm going to use FMU tomorrow morning and hopefully then it'll be SUPER dark I know I know, I'm pathetic!
hello Ladies i'm moving over today as i got my BFP Plssss can i join you over here? Im so nervous that the bean wont stick and i do have some little cramps grrrr just been for blood test but there was no doubting my FRER!!
It's tricky to say for sure but I would assume the best if you have no reason to think otherwise.
My pregnancy has been fairly smooth so far, the biggest problem I have is with my back. I can't stay too long in one position but moving too much causes pain as well. It took many weeks for me to find a happy medium. For example I no longer walk the dog each day but I can do some housework with frequent breaks and no lifting. However I've just been unlucky there, many people have no such pain.
You could end up being someone who is very sickly and can't hold down food for example. But even if that is true of first tri, it could clear up completely in 2nd tri. So it's really hard to predict for sure
What does the course entail? My advice would be just carry on as normal and if you need to slow down your body will tell you to. Listen to what is says, if you're hungry eat, if you're sickly then don't. If you feel tired just go have a lay down. It's what I'm doing and for the most part it seems to be working out ok.
Also I think it was plastik that said she was extremely hungry. It reminded me of my early weeks. I have a clear memory of being home and having had lunch and going to bed for an hour because I was tired. My tummy rumbled the whole time I was in bed. I even got up and found some grapes to snack on but it didn't stop the rumbling. It was so strange but I guess my body just needed more fuel.
