So I don’t know where I have been or how I have not discovered this until today?? MA now allows out-of-state residents to get married?? I am sooo happy I could cry. My partner and I have been engaged for over a year now and we have a 2 yr old son together and have been planning to get married. Cali legalized it forus but we now live in GA (we are from NY) and Cali is such a long way from home for our friends and family…but MA..ugh it is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from NY. I was so thrilled I immediately called my fiance to let her know. I wish we could fly there tomorrow and just make it legal!! However, it a little pricy to fly there and hotel and blase blah. I read there is a 3-day waiting period to receive your license?? Is that always the case, even with non-residents? Anybody who has been married there it would be great to hear some info/feedback. Only because we are planning a trip there..we would have to stay for at least 4 days?? or is there a way around the waiting period?? Oh my gosh I’m so thrilled.
its been forever since i have posted a blog. i guess cuz i havent had much to say. ive been reading all of your stories and how all of your journeys to parenthood are going and i suppose it makes me sad. my partner and i were trying for our second child with a private donor that we knew. well after we began the process things started to go not-so-well with the donor. and once that bad feeling over came us we decided to stop trying for now. it would be better to use an anonymous donor and just go through an IUI. sooo the process is halted. i guess it bothers me more cuz i was so anxious and so excited to finally be the one carrying. my partner carried our first born. and now i got my hopes up and was soo close to really doing it and BOOM!! now im not. we want another child so badly but finacially its a little tough right now to go through it medically. im sure the right time will come for us but right now just feels so right for me. but i guess its just wishful thinking.
i need to ask a question to all you other moms..or dads out there. my little boy is now 19 months old. and as of now he has been our only child and yeah we spoil him a little bit. but ever since he was little we always set boundaries and rules of do’s and dont’s. now my partner and i felt it was very important that we both agreed and were on the same page when it came to what we allow and what we dont and more importantly HOW we discipline him. however our plans must not be working all too well. now he is a little older and more independent and he wants what he wants when he wants it and that is it! he throws himself on the floor, he screams and yells stop it, he shakes his head no. all just for telling him no jaidon you cant touch that. if he wanted to touch it…look out!!…we have read so many books and have tried everything. we are now doing the time out thing. he has two times to actually listen and put it down or do whatever we are instructing him to do…and if he acknowledges us but continues as he pleases…he gets put on his time out “X” for 5 minutes. but no matter how many times we do this it has no effect. PLEASE does anybody have any suggestions on how to deal with an outta control…almost 2 year old???
well today was the day. i took a pregnancy test this morning. thinking that for sure it had to be positive. i still have not gotten my period have only had spotting and thought for sure it had to have taken. but the test was negative. what a huge dissappointment. oh well guess we’ll have to wait until next month.
wow, i am telling you i had zero time to worry about anything but my little man last night. monster was/is so sick. he is getting a couple of his molars in and apparently last night was when they decided to start bothering him. he woke up around 2am and has been up ever since. it just breaks my heart to see him to sad and sick. he is a baby that NEVER got sick. all he wanted was for me to hold him and be close to him. it is the sweetest thing ever…but i cant help but feel totally helpless cuz he is too small to tell me exactly whats wrong. but i think he just feels sick from having a fever. i am so exhausted i have now not slept in over 24 hours and im still going. and i want another baby? lol, sometimes it seems like such hard work…but really to sit back and think about it. all that work is so well worth it when you feel your baby hugging you cause he needs to feel loved and comforted. I just look back at him and know that i couldnt love anybody in this world more than i love him. its a beautiful thing.
can comebody please help me to understand how to cop with the WAITING?? it has not even been a full 2 weeks and i just cant take the antisipation. how am i going to repeat this next month if it didnt work? i have all the signs…and still no monthly period. although i still technically have 4 days until i should get it. :sighs: 4 days seems like an eternity to wait. i need to know now. i want this so bad and i wish and i wish….and i just know im pregnant. but at the same time i dont want to set my self up for devistation when the test comes up negative. does anybody have any suggestions? im not the patient type,lol. can you tell? i want this baby so badly. my partner and i would be the happiest lesbians in the world! i only want 2 children and i am blessed with one beautiful little boy…now its time for my GIRL!!! well thanks for letting me clear my head.
well, it has been a few days since my last blog. i just felt like i was repeating the same things over and over again. it is almost time for me to be able to take an actual at home pregnancy test to see if i really am pregnant. it has only been a little more than a week since my FIRST insemination and just about a week since my LAST. i have been feeling a bit sick lately ALL the time, and have been feeling like a little crampy and now have been having a little faint spotting even though i shouldnt get my period until next week. i have been super emotional and very sleepy. all of these signs are positive signs of pregnancy. especially the spotting. ive read time and time again about implantation bleeding and how many women mistake these feelings for their period when in fact it isnt the case at all. idk, i FEEL like i really could be pregnany. but i dont want to get my hopes up. im affraid that psychologically my body is doing all these things because i have in my head that i could be pregnant. i couldnt be this lucky and have the insemination work the very first time right? has anybody else had implantation bleeding? my partner did not have any with her pregnancy so im not sure if this is what i am experiencing or not. i dont know to believe that i really am pregnant or should i not get excited about it because all these signs could just be caused by something else. does anybody have ANY opinions???? please!!! im driving myself insane!!!!!!!!
