Pity parties go in here

Ugh. It's my birthday on Friday and pretty well everyone I know will be out of town. My gentleman friend (whom I adore, by the way) is in London for 2 weeks so I won't see him either.

I will also probably be working late, and then early on Saturday morning as well. I have no plans and for once I was hoping to be able to spend time with a guy on my birthday, but no. 

Even the people I work with, who I was meant to go out with after work, may not be able to do that.

I'll just be at home eating birthday cupcakes I made for myself.

Anyone else feeling sorry for themselves?

Re: Pity parties go in here

  • We had 3 days of stupid state testing ending today and two of the 22 kids ruined it for everyone.  Not that it was supposed to be fun or anything, but they were so disruptive I'm certain it hurt the other kids' scores.

    Pregnancy has turned me into a walking bundle of nerves and anxiety.  I am terrified that I will do something, or not do something, that will cause a miscarriage or permanently damage my baby.  From what I hear this is pretty normal especially for first timers, but I don't want to be that way!  I just can't help it!

    All I want to eat is potato chips and we don't have any and I don't feel like going out, so I'm considering trying to make some, but I know that won't turn out too great.

    And as usual I have way too much schoolwork to do, and I've been letting it slide, which just means more work later.

     WAHHHHH!

    (thanks Meg, I feel better now :-))

  • I was supposed to go to opening day at Fenway with my family and husband. Now I can't go because I've gotten my very first interview offer for the job I really want to do... a three hour flight away. 

    I'm hoping that I'm a serious candidate if they are asking me to fly in, but I don't really know. I know I should be excited about the interview, and I am. I just wish it wasn't the same day as an opening day Red Sox-Yankees!

    Talk about bad timing!  Where is the job?  3 hours...ATL? Chicago? ...?

  • I am DONE being pregnant. Like, really done. Yet my baby doesn't agree, so looks like I will go the full 14 days past due again, like I did with ds, which means I will have spent an extra month of my life being pregnant. I am 9 days late now and in pain. Grr.

    Can I just say how much this post terrifies me?  Labor is supposed to be one of the worst/most painful things humans go through (as a matter of course - must have labor for humans to live, no need to skydive and break every bone in your body) and yet pregnancy gets so bad that people want labor.  

    This makes me shudder.

  • Hey Meg, PM me if you want to grab a drink tomorrow - everyone should have a drink on their birthday!! Mine is next Thursday :-)

    I'm just cranky this week. I'm crampy and gained 4lbs in water weight like I do every month at this time and every month it annoys me and surprises me and I panic that I'm doing something wrong with my diet. It's raining and miserable outside and I just want to go home and drink hot chocolate and read a crappy novel.

    This is my week, and in fact I think I'm going to go make hot chocolate right now! I switched BCP and I think I underestimated how much my previous pill did to relieve the probs with AF. grrrrrr.

    Honestly I didn't find labor that horrible with my son. And I am totally unusual in that I am choosing to go to midwives that let you go, and encourage you to go, the full 42 weeks, most OBs don't like you going past 41 weeks, or sometimes even 40. So it is sort of my own doing, but it still sucks to still be pregnant! And I am just dying to find out what we are having.
