I am so sorry, but from what I hear there are safe pills to take during pregnancy and you really do want to get on it now and not wait until the baby comes (just in my opinion)
Pregnancy is really difficult for some people, it can make you feel so crazy. I hope it is just that but I hope you get in soon to talk to someone. And I'm glad you caught it early and want to do something about it fast.
I hope you get help soon and we are always here too!
I confess I'm feeling uncomfortable about work today.
I have been asking for permission to do something since mid-October, and have records of emails I sent to two different people who are in a decision-making position documenting that I have been asking. Nobody has responded at all. I sent a final email on Monday asking permission and letting them know my deadline to make a decision was today (I am required by law to hold a meeting no later than today, and I had to tell the parent SOMETHING). They did not respond, either to say yes or no.
So, I did it. They had PLENTY of opportunity to tell me "no", right? So I made a decision in the best interest of the child, which was to say "yes."
I know they won't be happy with me. My decision will cost them money.

Warning, huge multiquote coming up!
I confess that my DH can be really nutty sometimes.
I was chatting to one of Mia's daycare teachers, and she was talking about how some of the kids can be quite pushy with each other. I asked her whether Mia was pushy and she said no, Mia is more passive and tends to not to fight back when other kids take toys away from her. I later mentioned it to DH, not because I thought it was a cause for concern, just interesting.
On a seemingly unrelated note, DH has been getting into a lot of battles of wills with Mia lately. They always turn out badly (Mia gets increasingly defiant, DH feels he has to "win", and it ends with Mia screaming her head off and running to me for comfort), so I've tried to gently suggest to him that it may not be an effective form of discipline.
So after I mentioned this thing about Mia not being pushy, he said "Well, do you think that maybe that's because you don't get into battles of wills with her? Maybe that's why she hasn't learned to stand up for herself?"
How does that make any sense at all??
Well I finally have plans for tonight, kind of--we are meeting in Boston. I would have liked to ride up with her, but whatever. I'm sure I'll find my way somehow LOL
Between the GPS and directions from the website I should be okay. I am so excited (I'm seeing Joey from NKOTB by the way--his own solo music! In a little club! I hope we get there early enough to get close!) I hope everyone has a good day and night.
I feel all of you ladies on the getting daddy on board with appropriate interactions with the kids.
Last night Kai was pressing the buttons on the printer of dbf's computer. Dbf yelled at him and told him he wasn't going to get to watch a movie friday night. It's our movie night. Um...the "offense" is happening on a wednesday. He's 2. I hardly think that is an effective consequence. Added to the fact that it's totally unenforceable. What will we do, lock Kai in his room while we eat popcorn and watch a movie? He's famous for empty threats. That's why the kids never, ever listen to him.
Hey Maggie, wasn't it you who listened to RadioLab? Have you listened to the latest one about animal minds? Interesting stuff. Here's the link if anyone else is interested: http://blogs.wnyc.org/radiolab/2010/01/12/animal-minds/
I confess I finally got a call from my caseworker in Missouri. I called her in December to tell her to cancel all my stuff since B asked for a divorce and I was moving to Wyoming. It took her getting a piece of returned mail for her to call me, and only after I called her back did she cancel everything.
I confess I didn't have the presence of thought to click the multiquote buttons . . .
-62 degrees? Holy Noodly Goodness!!! Remind me to visit Alaska in the summer.
Didn't know Mike's had hard apple cider. Might have to try it.
The sweeter hard apple ciders are Woodchuck and Woodpecker. Strongbow is on the dry side and I hear Hornsby's is too (thought I've never had that one).
Janeen - Hugs, woman. I have a friend who was on depression/anxiety meds both while pregnant and also while nursing. Her DD is almost 9 months old and she's still taking them - so I know there are baby safe meds. Good luck.
I confess I'm irritated with a comment on Fb. A friend of mine is having muscle biopsies today to try to pin down a source of constant pain. I commented on her post and ended that I would be thinking about her today. Lady posts after me:I just find this irritating. I think it's an aunt of hers. Ironic because she herself is anti-religion.Thiinkin' s nice. Prayin's better. Doin' both
