So today we (me, Troy, Morgan, and Troy’s mom) went to Chimney Rock, NC. Its right beside Lake Lure where Dirty Dancing was filmed! Neat! But anyway, we went and it was a pretty good trip. Morgan was pretty much well-behaved minus a few times I had to get after her about getting upset at silly stuff (like me holding her hand while we were walking down the sidewalk where lots of cars were going by on the road). I had to get after Troy because when he and Morgan were climbing rocks near a stream he started to walk down before her near a steep looking rock and she decided to follow and I yelled at him that he needed to keep an eye on her the whole time. Yeah I didn’t care if he was embarrassed. I even told him so.
After that we went to get some lunch at a restaurant called Laura’s House. I think I previously posted about it? Anyway as soon as you walk in, you have to climb stairs to get to the dining area. It was pretty clean and nice looking and we sat down. First off, they didn’t have any pink lemonade, so I had to settle with Sierra Mist. Then, it took forever for us to get our food, and when we did my grilled cheese wasn’t even grilled! It looked like they toasted some bread and put cheese on it. The cheese wasn’t even melted. It came with fries which were alright. Then it took forever to get our check and when the waiter finally got around to doing that, turns out he had to rewrite it out. We should have just lied about some of the food that we got and made our bill cheaper.
We walked around and went to some of the gift shops and i bought a butt-ton of candy because i love candy, and also bought morgan some colored quartz. I had to deal with plenty of needless complaining about those. We decided after that to try and go to the actual state park, but tickets were 15 apiece, and we decided that we didn’t want to spend $52 on riding an elevator to the top and coming back down.
So we decided to head home. I slept on the way because that’s the only way I can deal with long car rides anymore.
We stopped by Best Buy because Troy’s mom wanted to see if they had Wizard of Oz on dvd. They didn’t but I saw she bought some other stuff. I think it was Andy Griffith. Hooray NC!
Got home and tried to find the heartbeat of Baby E and couldn’t. I only decided to try because my bladder was full and I really needed to go and anyway I just wanted to. But this lead to a crying fit. I’m alright.
THEN I find out Troy invited his mom to MY doctor appointment. Without asking me. I’m upset about that, only because he didn’t ask me first. He knows I’m upset because I told him point blank I was mad at him. I’ve tried explaining why, but I really honestly don’t think he gets it.
[Sidebar: His mom has breast cancer. I have no clue if its been diagnosed, but she seems pretty bad off and he wants her to see as much of Baby E as she can. I’m not upset that she’s coming to the appointment, although I don’t feel 100% comfortable.]
Anyway he said I was nuts and yeah I just dont think he gets it. At all.
I just feel like I don’t get any privacy anymore. Not that I really had much to begin with.
I’m tired. I just posted on Baby Center about irrelevant problems. I’m going to bed.
my nose is so runny right now and i have no tissues! :’(
8w4d cant find a heartbeat with my doppler and im pretty fluffy as is. 2 weeks 4 days until my next appt. The wait is killing me.
Eta: and I hardly have any symptoms. And even after multiple preg tests and 2 ultrasounds, it still doesnt feel real. Once I hit 12 weeks I think itll start sinking in.
Morgan just proposed to me.
there are lots of people i would like to visit ASAP, but laura is number one.
ily! i will even clean my house for you and offer you morgan’s bed (its the nicest one in the house)
their rock pose
Mums! Im looking for a fetal doppler for a reasonable price (aka no more than 30) which wouldnt be a bad offer for a used one. Anyone have one to sell?
my nips are so freakin’ sensitive. i seriously do not remember any of this with morgan.
so last night i was craving pickles. and today (well maybe 20 min ago) my husband brought home two 1QT jars for me. and i just ate one (minus 2 pickles that i gave morgan) i feel like i’m going to explode and my tummy kinda hurts in that good way.
only downside is that my hands smell like pickles.
ETA: he also brought home root beer. i don’t know if its caffeine free, but i’m so gonna drink one!
