YAHOOOOOO!!! I'm back all! I"ve missed you all sooooo much! It's very late here...just fed my new little man and should be off to bed before he's up again for his next feeding, but I finally got my pc running at home tonight and just had to say HI!! I won't even bother trying to catch up on the threads... it's been too long, but if you get a sec, PLEASE pop on this thread and update me as to how everyone has been this past month, and when I get a spare minute I'll do the same.

Baby came last month, late (just like a man to keep you waiting! haha) but healthy and gorgeous and aside from sheer exhaustion, I've been great. He's pretty good-natured, almost a month old now, which blows my mind!

I think of you guys all the time, and am soooo glad to be able to connect again. Can't wait to catch up with ya'll.

lots of love

a very tired (and happy) kc 🙂

CONGRATS!!

What a blessing. A little man. KC pray for this child by name every night. Be the best mom you can be. Always consistent, w/ a little give is ok. Set boundaries, rules, discipline now. Even at this tiny age, they learn. They know who loves them truly. Be mom first and friend second.

What a true blessing you have been given. Isn't he just the best? I'm sure he is.

Best to you and to little man.

Hi (((KC)))),

Congratulations and welcome back!

A baby boy......give us the details. How much did he weigh? What did you name him (you don't have to say on here if you don't want to)?

How have things been going for you.....you sound great.

Things have been going pretty well for me. B/F and I have been getting along really well for the past 2 months or so. We both celebrated 1 year of sobriety last month and although we still have some "underlying issues", things have definately taken a postive turn for us.

I started school this week, so between work, school, homework, and life in general, I won't be posting as much, but I did want to say hello and I'm glad your back.

I hope things are going well for you.

Love,
Lolli

(((((((((KC)))))))))), congratulations! How completely handsome is he? Have you gotten a lot of help with the other younguns from ex? How was your labor?

I'm so happy for you...I know, it's not like it snuck up on you, going about your merry little way and suddenly *poof*, what's this? A baby? Even knowing all the while what's going to happen, isn't it amazing to finally get to meet him?

I'm dealing with a lot of childhood issues, and also have been creeping and then jumping out of my denile and seeing how bad my ex was emotionally abusing me, the dandgerous situation it was for me and my daughter and why I was drawn to it. Scary stuff, really, a lot of it was durring my ppd, and I'm finding it easier to understand his need to control and ominate me through manipulation as I am understanding where the heavy need for aproval from people who subdtly let me know I am always wrong comes from (ah, therapy, I'm blaming it on my parents! LOL!)

my ex did some really heavy crazymaking, and then made the weekly call a weekly headache for me to the degree that I finally had to call it off. He seems to get the idea, any time he behaves abusively I tell him that he isn't alowed to dominate, abuse or bully me regarding our daughter, and he isn't allowed to contact me if it isn't about our daughter, then I hang up. He seems to have gotten the point, in that he simply isn't calling. I finally laied down the law and said "look, there are a million ways to keep yourself in her life, you have not sent a card, written a letter, sent those cute e-cards she loves, sent a video, NOTHING for four months, I refuse to allow you to say that I won't allow you to contact her becaseu I won't follow her around with a phone on her ear while she cries about it. You CHOOSE not to contact her in any way that diesn't involve controling me."

ANd suddenly...Ahhhh.

So glad to see you back, really! Hope you're sleeping when baby sleeps (don't you hate when people say that?), and really enjoying your little prince charming!

Thanks for the warm welcome back all! Loli- congrats on your anniversary- that is an incredible accomplishment, and I hope you feel proud of your committment to your sobriety!

EF- I've thought about you so often! Don't apologize for filling me in, please! I WANT to hear what's been going on and how you're feeling. How is baby girl these days? How old is she now?

Labour was good....my water broke first but I never went into labour on my own. they let me wait 24 hours then they induced. After that, it was smooth sailing. Started the drip at 8 am and he was born by 2. I had good drugs (haha) and my stbx husband and best friend were both with me from the minute my water broke until he was born, and they were both great. All in all, it was the perfect labour and delivery...exactly what I wanted...not so frozen that I couldn't push but no pain.

I've gotten a LOT of help...the stbx has been great...I actually can't complain about a single thing, which is a very nice feeling. The kids love the baby and have not been put out at all by his arrival.

My stbx and I are functioning very well together and are coparenting very effectively. My head is very clear in regards to him, and although I am very very appreciative of his help and support, I have not forghotten the hurt and pain I've endured as a result of his poor choices, and I have no interest in going back to that chaos. He's jiggling the hook but kc isn't biting!! 🙂 I'm just hoping we can put that part of our lives to rest and move forward without any more hard feelings or bitterness.

I'm pretty much over it I think. It still sucks and it will always suck, but it can't be changed and I can't live in the past anymore. I don't think he's evil anymore (haha) I can get along with him and enjoy his company...he's not a bad guy...just a really, really really really really really bad husband. So as long as I'm not married to him, we'll be just fine 🙂

As for new baby boy...he's just perfect. He was 10 pounds 4 ounces and 22 inches long. The last couple of weeks were really hard- I was exhausted and GROUCHY beyond belief! He's a month old now and is a very calm, peaceful little guy...he sleeps well and eats well and is a total snugglebum, which is right up my alley! All in all, I'm pretty content and actually can't complain about anything!!! Life is good and I'm very grateful.

Still looking forward to catching up with everyone else....2b, tracylyn, tc...let me know how life has been.

peace

kc

I am so glad you are back and feeling well. I have really missed you on this site. I have kept a pretty low profile lately, tons of stuff going on in my life and just no energy to discuss it here.

Can't wait to "catch up".

Love,

That's wonderful news, Kc. I am happy that everything is going so well for you. Maybe EF can give you pointers on handling computers and babies at the same time (ha, ha). Glad you're back. SD

Congratulations, kc!! So happy that this event was a complete blessing for you. You know what they say... wedding, funerals, and babies, too, all seem to bring out the skeletons in peoples' closets. What a relief that he's here and it went as well as it did!

So glad to see you back, too! I haven't been posting over the past month or more until the last couple of days, so there's nothing much to catch you up on. But let's just say I don't think much on the ex anymore. Had a little wind from Katrina and no power for 5 days, but I certainly can't complain. All is well here.

WOW! I almost wish my ex would knock me up so we could tollerate one another LOLLL!

I'm so glad your labor went smoothly and that you feel really supported right now. And what a big healthy boy, too! I just love those little newborn fat cheeks! My daughter (who is 15 months almost, btw) is only 15 lbs right now, she's on a special diet, she just doesn't like to eat. But she too is a healthy and happy little lady. Wouldn't it be fun to have a playdate!:)

Wow though, I'm sure that last 24 was quite the chineese water tourture, huh? Good that you had people thre, and the 'good drugs' to get you through! And I'm sure it's worth every second to you now with that little guy snoozing on your shoulder! Congratulations again, I just think it's great!
