Wow...I'm 16 weeks LOL Seems like this pregnancy is flying by! I am modeling at a vintage clothing show this weekend so I am very excited about that. My sister, mother, daughter, and I are going to be staying at the Chateau Laurier and having lots of fancy meals. I am excited to eat my heart out for once. I have still not gained any weight with this baby.
Hope everyone's had a good weekend we had a lovely family day out yesterday Benjamin got to sit in a fire engine which he loved we had a picnic out well in the car as the wind was so cold, we saw red squirrels, watched some birds of prey being flown Benjamin did so much walking he was shattered and even went to bed 15 mins early. It was a beautiful day just cold in the wind been overcast today we've had a quiet day Steve's been doing bits in the House I've tried to rest today as it was a busy day yesterday although we did pop to the shops (to try & get me a new bra but don't stock my size so will have to order one online) and supermarket. My boys have gone for a walk while I cook dinner nothing fancy tonight sausages, chips and beans.
Luce what a cute bump and bubba!!! Sounds like a fun day out!
We have the opposite problem as of last week, 34 degrees temperature and its not even May lol! I realised none of Hero's summer cloths fit well apart from some shorts a something like 4 t-shirts. Yesterday morning it was so hot Hero got a bit of a sun burn and was quite dizzy after our trip to the park. Oh and once again my body is in no shape to greet bikini season Grrr....
Vicky, you look great, shut up lol!!!!! Sounds like it's nice and hot already, yowza. I'm jealous, though!
Lucy, awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!! What a beautiful bump and scan pic!!! Look at that little one! Soooo adorable. And you are looking fabulous as always.
Happy 16 weeks, Gibs.
Mel, I saw your bump pic and you look amazing, not at all like you've gained 30 lbs. Sorry about the GD again.....like you, I did the diet and Alistair was only 7 lbs 3 oz. It can be easily managed but it's just sucky.
30 week picture has been posted now on fb for me. I think I am carrying lower this time then I was with Kash?!
I had my prenatal appt this morning, and he is measuring dead on at 30cm. I also have to do another glucose test as the doctor is wondering if it is a false positive. So I am going in tomorrow to do the 2 hour fasting glucose test - joy oh joy! I just love that lovely orange crap! lol!
Well my SIL finally came out and asked for money. I told her no. Told her I have my own bills to worry about, I am going on mat leave soon and trying to plan a wedding, so I have no extra money to be giving away. I guess she is heading to Edmonton tomorrow, and plans on going East again after school is done to get the kids (I can't see this happening, but we will see). She is saying stuff to me that it's hard to love yourself when your family doesn't love you and that's what her issues are is she wants to be close to her family. So I probably pissed her off with the message I sent, but I had to say it.
I ended up saying that sometimes friends are the family we need most and to never forget them. And that yes her family is messed up, but every family has their issues and she just might not know about them. I told her about how I don't have a relationship with my brother and therefore don't know my neices and nephews at all, but I am not allowing that to ruin my life. I said that her brother and sister and her all went their separate ways once they moved out of the house, and it makes it hard because she is there, Gord is here in the West, and her other sister keeps getting moved around (she's in the military). So I said you have to make the best of what you can. I said that she has 2 boys, and they should be her focus as well as on herself. To quit living her life worrying about everyone else, and if she focused on herself and the kids then she will be happy. I made a comment too about are you really willing to die for what other people think, or live and be happy for you and your boys?! I said that if she continues therapy, that she will realize that she has to put herself first and learn to love herself, and it's not about others not loving you. Made a comment too about has her family ever come out and said I don't love you, or are you just overthinking it and it makes you feel that way?! And said again about how I always overthink everything and assume the worst, and when I actually ask if this is how that person feels, they tell me no...and then I realize it is all just in my head and I thought it but it wasn't true.
I don't know if that is harsh or not, but I don't think I got time for oh woe is me right now with that. I am believing more and more that she did fake this for attention, especially with the whole getting kicked out of the hospital thing that doesn't make sense, and with Gord saying she has done this before in the past too. Sorry if I am offending anyone with this.
It's not offensive to me. I agree with you. I have been through too much in my life to be very supportive to people who play the victim. Being an actual victim is a very different story. That is what makes me insane sometimes. I lost everything I ever had *literally* to be a better parent and when people don't put the happiness of their children before their own selfish feelings, it aggravates me. That seems to be what is happening with your SIL. Some sort of desperate cry for attention more then a cry for help.
