Hey Everyone!
Sorry i haven't really checked in much this week, things have been crazy here. I've been really sick with my IBS since Saturday. Also, we had a major rain storm here in Rhode Island this week, and just about every river flooded, they had to shut down parts of all the major highways and everything. They said its the worst flood they've ever seen, people's houses, cars, malls, restaurants, and everything are still under water. They're saying there's easily millions of dollars worth of damage. emoticon I feel so bad for the people that it affected that bad.

On a lighter note, i brought my son for his first hair-cut, and just about cried! It had to get done though, and it looks Adorable! Just in time for his 1st Easter. emoticon

Gabby and Mary Jane- Thank you so much for the warm welcome as new co-leader. I'm excited to help, and i know it gets hectic for Y'all.

Moxy- Happy belated Birthday! emoticon

Well, got to run for now, Brayden wants to take a nap, and I've got a bunch of stuff to do for this weekend. Have a great Good Friday and Easter everybody! emoticon

Why would your husband say that? That's mean!! My husband is a huge support in my weight-loss, but I still let him know that he's starting to gain a little too :) Is your husband Mr. July in a calendar that he can say such things?

Sorry, I get a little upset about anyone telling anyone that they can't do something- there's no need to not be supportive!!! Good luck and let us know how we can help!

Hi,
I'm new and really looking forward to the support that I'll get here. My husband tells me that I'm never going to lose the weight..so I need all the encouragement I can get.
Thanks:)

Thanks for the support Gabby and Moxy! Bella rarely cries at home, so she obviously wasn't happy there. Today she is home with her new sitter, and from what she says, is doing great. She didn't cry at all after I left, so I think we're gonna be just fine with this arrangement.

And yes Gabby, I know you can make it these next 60 or so days! And then you will have another bundle of joy to make it all worth it :)

Moxy-Enjoy your time home this week, even if the weather doesn't cooperate!

Hello Everyone!!! This has been a hectic week, I had a job fair yesterday and it kinda felt like a waste of time. I was so tired from the day and suffered all night with braxton hicks, luckily I woke up fine this morning. Another pregnancy, I would have been calling the dr. but I know the process now.

Ashley: Have you tried craigslist for babysitters. Sometimes there are some good leads and will be much cheaper than daycare centers. I can completely relate to having family babysit. I think it was a good honest idea for your BIL girlfriend to be honest about what's going on. Sometimes babies can be a lot and that's your precious cargo, you want the best for her. I hope it works out at least until you find a good match. We are really lucky because a grandmother type woman babysits for us and she just loves the kids.
I will send good vibes for you so you find a perfect fit!


I can't wait until this pregnancy is over, I have less than 60 days, I think I can make it :)

Hope that Bella ends up happier! I wonder why she was crying all the time- does she do that when you're home?

I've been very lucky with childcare (knock on wood). Right now I get a whole week home with my baby! Yay!! Sadly she seems to have a cold and the cold wet weather hasn't helped either. Ah well.

Happy Passover and Easter everyone! Have a great week!

Happy Birthday Moxy!

I've just finished getting through a bit of a crisis on the daycare front. My BIL and his girlfriend had been watching Bella since she was 3 months old, and told us last week that we needed to find something else immediately-it was too much. Apparently Bella cries pretty much all day long there. It breaks my heart to hear that, especially since I didn't know it had been going on all along. So I went out looking for new daycare last Friday, found two I liked but couldn't afford and was in the middle of weighing my options when my other BIL's girlfriend offered to watch her in our house for the same price we were paying. She starts tomorrow, and I am hoping and praying it works out. If not, I'm seriously thinking of just quitting my job and making it work somehow with me at home during the days, although we cannot afford it at all.

So while this is going on, I'm feeling incredibly stressed and have been slacking majorly on eating healthy and exercise. Our weather is looking up, so I have been taking about a 20 minute walk every day with Bella, but that's about it, and I've been eating like crap. Hopefully now that things have fallen into place, I will get myself back on track.

Gotta run, hugs to all of you!

Morning all!

I'm another year older, on spring break, and ready for this week to crush me. Still working on my game (I have two weeks to get players, character sheets out, blue sheets out...I should do that this week while I'm off).

I took a mile walk yesterday. It was chillier than anticipated, but nice. We snagged my mother in laws little slide for my daughter- she is loving it. Nice to spend some time outside even if I should be working on the game.

Hope you all have fun!
-Moxy

Well hello my fellow team leaders! Thank you so much for keeping this chat going!!

Goth, I guess I should make an announcement about you becoming a co-team leader, huh? Sorry about that! I will do it right after I finish typing this.

Gabby, I did the same thing as you...stayed inside all day long when it was absolutely beautiful outside today!! I told my son that we need to get up and get moving first thing tomorrow morning so we don't do the same thing tomorrow! So sorry to hear about your car. That stinks. How do you guys manage without one, especially with you being pg???

Okay, my sweet Caroline is getting grumpy so I think it's time to try to get her to sleep. Take care and keep on keeping on!

Goth: Yay another team co leader!!! How fun, its just been MJA and I for the past year, and with me being pregnant and her being super busy, this is great news!!!


In car news, its always something right? My car needs a new water heater, thankfully we know a guy that does work super duper cheep, national tire and battery wanted to charge $800, and this guy will do it for around 100-200, hopefully. Right now, both of our cars on the fritz! It would be nice to be able to go out and get a new one, but I would perfer if the cars we had could last a lot longer.


Its a sunny beautiful day, and I'm wasting it away inside b/c the cable guy will be here b/t 12-4, oh well, its always a good thing when you can't leave, it makes you do housework.

A girl from my birth board I follow on another site had a 30 weeker, he's doing great, but that's scary, I'm 31 weeks, I'm not ready for this baby to be born and I'm thankful for being so healthy.


Hope your having a great weekend!!

Hello!
I was just recently added as another co-leader for this team to help out. I'm excited to be able to help out! emoticon
Finally, the weather is starting to clear u here as well! emoticon I can't wait for it to be here full wing! I'm dying to start playing tennis, baseball, rollerblading, etc.
My little monkey is getting too big! He's 7-months-old now, and has got the most AWESOME personality! He's starting to crawl, has 2 teeth now and more coming in, and is eating big boy food. It's flying by soooo fast!

GABBY1027- Sorry about your internet problem, ours has been going in and out cause they're working on the lines on and off.
The last few months definitely have flown by, it's amazing!
Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy, i remember how hard my son kicked, so i feel your pain, he was EXTREMELY active, and still is. I used to laugh when he got the hiccups cause it feels funny.
I'm glad you were able to get your daughter potty trained before you had the baby, that's going to make things so much easier for you!

Well, it's time for me to go run errands...Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Hello Everyone!!! I was kinda out of a commission for about the past week due to internet issues! Anywho, hopefully everything is up and running without any problems now! I can't believe its almost April!!! Where have the past few months gone, I'm home and time still flies, maybe even faster now.

Now is always the time of year in which I would really step up all workouts and start running pretty much everyday. I look forward to getting back into it! I have less than 9 weeks to go, and I can tell this baby is already getting so big. the kicks are painful and I don't remember that from my other two! I do feel his hiccups, which I have with my other two.

In fantastic and wonderful news, my daughter is about 95% potty trained, she is 100% pee trained, we are still working on her recognizing and feeling comfortable about doing her other before its too late, I tend to catch her in the act as of now. She has woken up dry for about two weeks now! This accomplishment of hers makes our lives so much nicer, I can't believe she finally did it!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Its never too late to get started and I'm here in spirit training and working hard with you, and then come July, back at it!
