[ - ] A neighbor told me a house on my street is in foreclosure, how do I find out which one? I googled, but only got directed to sites where I have to pay/sign up. Isn't this public information? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You're only 13 weeks and you can feel your uterus? Normally I'd say those sound like Braxton Hicks, but it's way early. Probably just gas and ligament stretching. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] here's my post. not sure if it's a vent or a kvetch. i'm in a huge funk. i had a miscarriage (second trimester) a few weeks ago and i think a lot of this is the residual from that (both emotional and physical/chemical). i'm trying so hard to keep things in perspective. i have a wonderful life in all the important ways. But i'm just so unhappy. angry and sad a lot of the time. unhappy with my weight, with my job, with my financial situation. irritable with dcs and dh. anyone ever btdt? 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

sorry for your loss. A second trimester m/c can be really traumatic. Have you given yourself permission to grieve it? Sometimes if you don't, the sadness and anger can come out in weird ways. [ Reply | More ]

anger is a very normal part of grief. And like I said, a 2nd trimester loss is not easy to handle. That is supposed to be past the dangerous time. How far along were you? You need to allow yourself to feel whatever comes up and take the time to deal with it. Therapy can be helpful but find someone who specializes in loss. If you want online people to talk to, there is a great site called Missfoundation.org. The forums there are for all sorts of child loss. There is a whole forum for m/c and another for trying again (assuming you want to) They saved my life after I lost my son. I wil be glad to answer anything else you may want to know - even if it seems odd or scary. I know there are sometimes things you can't ask IRL [ Reply | More ]

thank you so much. i think i was looking at things in such a rational way that i figured i'd be fine with it. then all the emotions hit me and i kept saying "i shouldn't be feeling this way" instead of saying "it's normal to be feelign this way". i tried going to an online message board and i felt so guilty. there are so many people who are tyring for years to have dcs. or who had stillborn or infant loss. or who have had more than one miscarriage. and i feel like "who am i to complain?". but then i think that's making it even harder for me t odeal with my emotions. dh and i are essentially not talking about it at all. my mom thinks i'm over-reacting to a certain extent. i called a volunteer helpline and i think it was helpful for me to verbalize things. but they couldn't really help me. they said all the right things but it didn't really help. sometimes i think the only thing that will help is just having another baby. then i think that i'll be a real wreck when i get pregnant again. assuming i do get pregnant again. maybe i'm also feeling in limbo right now...waiting to get the doctor's ok for having sex again. i think i'm more shook up about this than i thought i'd be. thanks for listening.

^^^whoops. it was helpful to say things out loud. but he couldn't really help. he said all teh right things but bottom line is that it's still painful. sometimes i think that only having another bayb will make things better. then i worry that i won't be able to conceive. or that the pregnancy will be really scary. i'm in limbo right now...waiting for the doctor's ok to have sex. and i think that's another aspect that very difficult now...the no-man's land.

not a problem. Don't worry about anyone else's loss. My OB told me a very wise thing after my son died. SHe told me to get to some sort of support group and that I would hear worse stories than mine. At the time I thought "What could be worse?" but she was right. And what I have learned is that a loss is a loss and none of it is fun. A very sad thing happened to you. Of course you have the right to complain. You can't compare losses - it doesn't work that way and even if someone else's loss was "worse" than yours in some way, you still have the same emotions. This board I mentioned does have the one just for m.c too which I think makes some people in your situation feel more comfortable but they will welcome you no matter what. It can be a little babycenter - fair warning! But I needed that for a while. Try to talk to your mom and your DH. She should know better but things were handled differetnly many years ago. Men don't really get connected to a baby til he or she is born so DH probably just doesn't really get it. Men grieve differently anyway though. The only way through grief is through it. You can't avoid it and it's hard and it sucks, But, you can get through it [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What do you think of this? Last month my bathroom tile was delivered. I paid everything in full gave them the check it was a done deal. Last week I realized that they did not give me a break down of the freight charges which I had paid$100 for. I also paid $125 for delivery. They sent me a fax telling me that I actually owe them more money another $80. I find this incredibly rude and unprofessional. I paid everything in full upon receipt now after a month they want more money? What kind of business is this? I realize now why they have such a bad reputation for customer service. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

if you let a salon cut your cuticles, then you're opening yourself to infection. it doesn't mean you get the infection from the place -- actually it's more likely you got it later, from a doorknob, using the bathroom, subway pole, etc. [ Reply | More ]
