...and I miss you ladies! I stalk, but can't dedicate myself to the NET quite yet, I would probably miss 2/3 of the conversation and feel awful!
Only 4 more weeks of classes at full time status and than I only have 1 summer class and I'll officially have my BA! So I should be able to come back and bore you ladies with my responses soon enough
Welcome back! And congratulations on your own soon to be LO. How is Nolan taking it?
I agree that there is no way to ask that question of someone, and not have it be noseypantsing. If someone volunteered the information, that's different.
Chrissy, how did Rich do with the news?
Well I can't wait to 'see' you back here again Christina
Yes! Yes, Xtina! Congrats on your pregnancy! Come back and tell us all about how your school year went once it's all over and done with.
Kate, it does seem like a really intimate, inappropriate question. I can honestly think of only 3 friends whom I'd feel comfortable asking, and they would probably tell me up front anyway.
Before we got pg with Nolan, while we were TTC, one of DHs aunts told me "What can't you have any kids?" while asking me one night why we hadn't had any kids yet. Good example of why we didn't tell hardly anyone what we were going through. Not the most sensitive bunch.
Rich has a gf, Chrissy? Is it that mutual friend of yours that you mentioned earlier? I think it will all get comfortable again if you just keep being around each other and giving it time. That's always been the way I handled awkwardness anyway.
I want to find you that G.I.L.F. shirt, btw.
Though, I am stuck taking a 'Religion and Personal Experience' class currently. The curriculum is basically reading these books and than writing papers on them. Currently readin 'Take This Bread'. Sigh. It's been difficult and apparently I am the only non-christian in the class, which just means our weekly 'discussions' involve in no one responding to me
Rich won't change...it's something weird about him. Because he has a gf, he has to be a d1ck to me. We were broke up before and it was the exact same thing. AND...this time we had a 'moment' and a couple days really, really talking. It ended up with us making out and me bawling about how we ended up here. The next day he sent an abrupt text stating, "I've thought about it all night and I think it's best if we just remain friends." He will not discuss anything with me, won't explain anything to me, and for a while wouldn't even come up to my apartment when he dropped Conner off or picked him up. Like it's my fault and I fooled him somehow. I dunno. I don't really care. The chick is 30-something, has two kids with two dads, currently lives with a guy that's a trucker and has a history of f'n lots of different men. I'm not feeling threatened in the least. No Myles, she's not my friend that I mentioned earlier. She's a piece of work and looks like a bar broad. But Rich likes her.

Sigh. I am sorry Chrissy He went the total opposite of finding a woman like you didn't he
Christina!!!! Congrats! And I do consider that trying because you have talked about wanting that for a while. And how cool to be almost done with school!!! I feel for you in the religion class....I went to a catholic school and was the only atheist or anything close to one in my classes....which was at least one religion and than with my major, religion came up all the time.
It is a rude question but one that many of us think! I think sometimes it's just trying to figure out if it was a good surprise or a surprise. Not that a baby is a bad thing but there is something about having one on purpose and a surprise. People are just nosey and I like to think that most don't mean any harm.
Chrissy it's amazing how well you take things. I could just picture my mom if that was me at 18, eventually she would have come around but OMG it wouldn't have been pretty. But at 18 I was definitely not an adult. I wasn't really an adult until about 24 yrs old. That was when I was no longer taking their money to support myself in anyway.
The school I am attending is Catholic, I am pretty sure, it is a private university and I had to take one religion class in order to receive my BA. It's frustrating, because now it means I have to take a class over the summer which is not ideal! Oh well, I am almost there

When I got pregnant I was 16. My father wasn't pleased, but that was pretty much the role he played with me. What was done was done, and he was nothing but supportive (if not slightly disappointed as well). Everything came out all right and I really, really appreciate how he was about it. He was the best. I learned from the best.
You got me started. I wasn't going to rant about Rich. He's just going through something and it really has nothing to do with me. I've called him on the things that have to do with Conner but the rest of it I really don't care about. I cared when he got my emotions going and then suddenly pulled back, but I'm even over that bit too.
And Rich is being a complete ****. I'm so sorry.

I have to say that you're handling this with such grace, Chrissy. I'm not sure I'd be as supportive and understanding as you're being (with both Jesi and Rich).
When I got pg with dd1, I was 24, had been to college and had lived on my own for 8 years, and was working as an editor for the local paper. I wasn't married, and the guy wasn't someone they were in love with (I wasn't sure I was, either - ha). But my parents were so angry, disappointed, embarrassed -- it was a tough time for me. They came around eventually (mostly because I did end up marrying the father of my child, although I shouldn't have, and it didn't last). But I sometimes think about how much sadness and stress could have been avoided for me had they accepted and supported me from the beginning. I'll never forget the looks on their faces when I told them, sobbing, that I was pregnant. It was horrible. My mom couldn't talk to me or look me in the eye for weeks.
By loving Jesi and Kaleb, and accepting her news with joy, you're giving them a wonderful gift.
