ICLW

Hey everyone visiting from ICLW!

Just a little background.

C-Dub and I had been TTC since October of 2007.  After a whole year of charting, opks, and everything else, we finally managed to get pregnant, only to find out there was no heartbeat the day before Thanksgiving last year.  I had my D&C and had been trying to  move on from the hurt and depression of loosing the baby and having to start all over again, all the while being a L&D nurse.  At the same time, the same week as the miscarriage, my hubby got laid off.  So for four months, we had been dealing  with loss and me being the only one working.  Hard.

But surprise surprise, just when I had decided to take a break, I got pregnant again.  Things were looking up, and C-Dub got two job interviews in  the same week.  Alas, he had decided in a weak, stupid moment, to smoke some weed, and of course, when the drug tested him…..you can guess the rest.  he has the 3rd interview today and I can only hope that  there is no drug testing involved in this corporate job that pays more than I ever imagined him making. 

So here I am, 8 weeks pregnant, still scared shitless that at any moment this pregnancy will go the way of the last one., with a jobless husband who might not be able to get hired due to a bad choice on a Sunday afternoon. 

Thanks for reading.

  1. Congrats on your pregnancy.

    You can google for drug testing remedies to fool the test. We did drug testing where I worked and we had many people talk about buying something to fool it from a health store. I don’t remember what they said, though.

    How’s that for your first April ICLW comment? LOL

  2. What is ICLW?

  3. Congrats on your pregnancy and wishing your husband the best of luck with the upcoming interview.

    Enjoy the extra boobage. I got way more than I needed when I was pregnant and, unfortunately for me, my boobs never went back to normal after I finished nursing.

  4. I used to be an L&D nurse. I now work in the OR. I cannot be depended upon to behave myself for very long, so it’s best if my patients are asleep. Ohh, I hope everything goes well. I didn’t realize you were a fellow OBer. What a slap in the face. I couldn’t have hung if I’d had to deal with that too. Babe, I hope everything goes well for you! C-Dub still needs a daily reminder of some sort, if you ask me. I’m not forgiving him till he finds another job and dumps the unwashed friends. ICLW

  5. From ICLW:

    eish! There is always one friend who can be counted out to bring in temptation eh?

    Hopefully C-Dub has learnt his lesson and gets given a chance to make things right for you!

    I hope so, because everyone deserves a break, especially when they’re pregnant at last!

    p.s. boobage issues remained after pregnancy for me. I was a 34B before, went up to a 36G during and sadly still linger in the E-F category 3 years later! I miss the itty bitty ones but I must say, your cleavage shot will draw a LOT of attention 😉

  6. Hi! Happy ICLW! Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope that your husband gets the corporate job so you can expreience less stress during your pregnancy. I also experienced what villagepig did. I was a 36C before pregnancy, then became a 36DD during pregnancy (probably getting to a 38DD at the end but just didn’t want to deal with new bras), and 10 months after giving birth was just starting to squeeze into a 36D. I am pregnant again, and hoping I don’t end up an E or larger this time around.

  7. Congrats on your pregnancy, and best of luck to your husband and his up coming interview.

  8. Congrats, I hope this pregnancy passes quickly and smoothly.

    I had hyperemesis, which was basically really bad morning sickness, all day, all the time. NO FUN. There are tons of thing you can do for it, though, if it gets bad there are even medications they can prescribe. Hopefully yours won’t be too bad and will pass soon. 🙂

  10. Hey there,
    Oh man I would kill my husband. I’m a nurse and he was out of work for a month and I was ready to kick his butt off that couch. Awful. Good vibes for your pregnancy! PS. Your boobs look awesome.

  11. Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope your husband gets the job. And stays clear of the weed from now on. Totally not worth it.

  12. i got laid off in july of 08. your dh is so lucky that he’s got INTERVIEWS! i would hold my breath if anyone was smoking the ganja anywhere near me!! i hope this 4th interview is the one where they offer him the job!!

    i have to say, your boobs are looking spectacular! get some back-strap extenders (i know torrid carries them) – so that you can get a little more life out of your bras. although, that won’t help the cup size…

    congrats on your 8 weeks – i will be checking back to be sure you pass your milestone so i can celebrate with you!

    xoxo
