No deli meat
Not too much Tuna
No drugs (damnit!) (just kidding)
No drinking (double damnit) (that damnit is legit)
No runny eggs
No laying on your back after 18 weeks
Take your prenatals
Don't sit too long
Don't stand too long
Paint in a ventilated room
Keep a distance from Kitty Litter
No hot baths.
The hardest one for me is No Crossing Your Legs.
Crossing Legs= Varicose Veins=Not Pretty
I catch myself doing it all the time!

I had a meeting today with a furniture dealership. Just to learn about the company and for the manager to figure out who I was. They have large bids out right now and are getting to know the possiblities of future employers before they get over their heads. I felt ok about that interview. Just wish I had learned even more at my previous job.
I have stayed positive through most of this. But with my pay check we were living pay check to pay check. If I don't find a job, we will be a couple hunderejd short each week. That's stressful for anyone who has lost their job. I am finding it even more stressful, because it feels like I am having to sacrifice on what is healthy and not so much for me, while I am trying to grow our little one.
I will continue to be as strong as I can be. I'll be damned if I will let what some good ole' country boys (out for themselves) did to me, get me down.

Well she gets to stay and I got let go (because I make more money) And I told them yes, but I am pregnant and know a lot more, and why don't you let me know this and say I am sorry we need to cut your pay, then letting a 4 month pregnant girl go find a job in this economy?. I would rather get paid less than nothing.
They didn't think of that and they wanted me to stay on another week to pass on all my knowledge to everyone else and my cheap "Mexican" replacement and get paid for 4 weeks.
I told them I had a problem with that. It was then brought to me that I didn't have to train her for the following week (because they must have realized I would never do that). So they just gave me my 4 weeks severance.
They say it had nothing to do with me being pregnant. But here is a scenario and you tell me what you think.
The interns time was supposed to be over in the beginning of November. Well around Halloween my boss emailed me to ask what all the intern could do because he was going to go to the owner to try and get her to stay on. I told him and a few days later I asked what the owner had said. He basically said that the owner told him he was crazy because they had lost so much money. The next day (a few days) he came to me and asked when my maternity leave was. I reminded him that this great company of ours doesn't give maternity leave, but my due date was June 18. I asked him "you know I am planning on coming back" and he said yes. The next day the intern was hired on permanent. That was in the beginning of November. And January 2nd I am let go. What a cowinky dink!
I am being positive, but at the same time I am pissed. I would've been fine to be let go because of the economy, but the way they did it and me was wrong. So FUCK them. Karma always comes around. And I will help Karma find its way.
I usually wouldn't do something like this, but being professional got me a great paying job and led me to tell them I was pregnant as soon as I found out. So maybe if I wasn't so good I would still have my job.

I love love love the color. And can't wait till I can afford to put a few other things on the wall.
It is definitely starting to feel like home.
