My wife had an ultrasound last week. They saw the fetus, but no heartbeat. We had to wait till yesterday to do it all over again. Heartbeat doesn't start till around 6 weeks. They though maybe we counted wrong. We go in yesterday, and there is heartbeat, but it's not fast enough. Only 99 BPM, where it should be anywhere between 120-160. The doc tells us that we have to come back next week, and do it all over again. It's been tearing at our relationship. I don't know what to feel. The fetus was 5,5mm yesterday. So small, yet the heart is beating, and I can see it on the ultrasound. It is my child, but is it a child yet? All these discussions people are having about when life starts, what is a baby, what is not. All that flashed through my mind yesterday. It is so simple to have an opinion about that, when it's not happening to you. When you are on the spot, the decision is sooo much more difficult.
This morning my wife wakes me up, and tells me there is bleeding. I guess the body has rejected the pregnancy. I don't know. We'll have to wait till next Wednesday to find out. Maybe it's better this way. The doc said that the body will "know" if there are issues with the fetus. I think it's better this way, than to find out later that there are severe deformations, or something else. This way the decision was taken out of our hands. I guess that is the silver lining on this one.
We'll try again. Fo sho.
Sorry to hear. My wife and I went through something similar about 5 years back. The worst ones are when you have to carry the baby to term, even though it died. Happened to a few people i know. Sad days.
Ffs was enjoying a day off doing nothing and playing some pc games, when I looked out of the window, saw my cat laying in front of the house. Thought she was just chilling and was gonna call her inside.
Find her dead with fluid seeping from the mouth, a chipped fang and her tongue bitten through a bit. Must have been some kind of seizure.
Completely unexpected and It was hard not to cry.
I took a shovel and buried her in a nearby field. Mishka (Mouse; because of her gray color) was 9 years old.
Reassigned to Fort Chaffee (BRAC), cleaning up brass!
That in the 2007-2008 US Presidential Election, if I, 2sheds, shermodius or Linedoggie had been apart of a "church", equivalent to the one jeremiah wright led and now-President Obama had been apart of, we would have been thrown out of the election campaign. Because we would have been exposed for the racist (or racist connection) we had. However, in the land of denial, the US media ignored that from day one. And made every conceivable attempt known to man, to disassociate then, candidate Obama from this organization. Now an ad that exposes this is now blown out of proportion reality, so that the US media can continue its love affair with their "leader".
I've been fucking scammed! Sold some **** a $50 dollar iTunes card on eBay. Now he claims someone else was on his account and it was not him. Thing is, this guy only opened his account the day he bought it(and four others). I contacted the other sellers and the same thing happened to all of them. Its only 50 bucks but it's still annoying.
Currently hating my flat mate's lack of spine. At the moment I'm sharing a flat with a guy from college, and as it stands we're getting paid £700 each by our sponsors to be here. Out of that we have to pay rent, buy food and pay utilities bills, money's pretty tight. Lately however, a guy from my flat mate's class has been inviting himself round at lunch (that's right, he's not being invited, he's asking whether he can come over for lunch) and then subsequently freeloading food from us, because he's currently broke due to blowing all his money on getting plastered at the weekend. Now this guy earns more than us, and he's pretty quick to point that out when it comes up in conversation, getting £50 a month less than us but having his board in a guest house paid by his company, the only thing he has to provide himself out of his pay with is lunch, apparently. But it would seem he's found a chump willing to subsidize his weekend drinking sessions. "Hey, why spend my money on food when I can spend theirs? Awesome, more alcohol for me!"
The first time it happened, I let it slide, however, it's starting to become a regular thing now it would seem. I spoke to my flatmate and told him to start saying no to this guy, but it transpires that he was round yesterday, and I suspect from the dishes in the sink, today as well. I'm not amused. The only reason we have money to buy food with is that my flatmate and I are careful with money, and don't piss it up the wall getting wasted and spending £100+ a night every weekend. Why is it fair that we seem to be expected to subsidize someone else's hedonism?
Decided I'm gonna let off steam about work as can't do it on facebook.
How ****ing stupid are young uni students these days? I specify young as I'm a 33 year old uni student myself.
At 2am, while on shift as a security officer at a certain UK university, I notice a group of 6-7 students all aged between 19-23 years of age playing football up against the walls of the halls of residence. I decide to approach them and tell them all about how using the walls of other students rooms as goal posts is a bad idea, and how the echo of the ball is creating a disturbance. they see me coming and leg it before I can say two words to them.
I decide to watch from outside of the stairwell they are now running up (glass windows) to see where they go. Having watched them, I enter the flat and find them all stood around in the communal room out of breath acting "innocent".
"Ok lads" I begin "do you think 2am is a good time to be outside playing football?"
"We weren't playing football" comes the reply from the student in t-shirt and shorts carrying the ball beneath his arm.
"Why are you all out of breath then?"
(now this is the part that threw me...really)
"We were running up and down the stairs."
"You were running up and down the stairs? Why?"
"Well its just something we do!"
WTF??? OK, you're on the spot and you have to think of a quick clever answer. How about:
"We've all just finished shagging our girlfriends"
"We are all out of breath from a good laugh"
"We are all having heart attacks"
...F.F.S. even "We all saw what we thought was a ufo in the window and it scared the crap out of us"
