PF an Kadesma, you're more than welcome to stop by & see the baby any time you'd like. Well, once she's born, that is. Just drive on over!

Good luck! I hope they pony up soon. That's so stressful! Deep breaths.

Last night I enjoyed 8 hours of regular contractions. I spent 4 hours tossing and turning, with a few minutes of sleep here and there. Around 2 am the contractions peaked at about 7 minutes apart, but I was very tired by that point and even though they were pretty uncomfortable, I was finally able to fall asleep. I figured I'd get as much rest as possible until they were too intense to allow me to. I woke up 2 hours later and they had stopped. Today just back to sporadic Braxton-Hicks. Grrrrrr. I still have a week and a half before my due date, so it's not like I'm in any hurry, but really, was that necessary? It was probably dehydration since I was sweating like crazy during work last night, but I drank a ton of water to try to prevent that! I honestly am being very patient most of the time, but nights like that make me just want to be done.

So I am applying for this job. PCA, the home care to help an elderly person. The company says they only hire people with minimum 6 month experience, however if I answer questions of the test properly it will be consider as if I had those 6 month experience. The company doesn't provide the training. How am i supposed to answer the questions? Some of them are really simple common since kind of stuff, but some are totally stupid or very specific. It's just weird.
