This group is for ranting and raving about all the big and little things that happen during conception, pregnancy and child-rearing, and the other life bits that might be hormonally charged during this time.

6 facts about my pregnancy:
1. I was induced because the dr wanted to get out on time. She was only 30 minutes late.
2. I was only in active labour for 30 minutes
3. I found out I was pregnant the day of my fathers funeral.
4. I went into labour on my due date.
5. My mother guessed when my daughter would be born. Right down to the minute.
6. Because I didn't like my birth experience at the hospital I'm going to school to become a midwife and a ibclc.
Welcome to Pregnancy Raves and Rants, a place to brag and boast or whine and vent. With such a diverse user base from all corners of the globe, it is inevitable that at some point people will disagree. When using the community feature of Alt12 apps, we ask that you follow a few basic guidelines, to help keep the community a safe, supportive and harmonious environment, as it is intended.
If you find yourself always "battling" another user, you might wish to use the "Ignore a User" feature. You will find instructions on how to use the feature in the Announcements forum. It is not ok to post insulting, defamatory, or abusive messages to another member of the Community in any situation, including retaliation

If you come across a user who you believe is being less than truthful in their posts or who is posting in a way that does not seem to make sense, please do not engage in a war of words or "call-out" the member on the forums as this too is seen as a form of harassment.

On the forums for our applications, it is not acceptable to request or provide private personal contact information. This includes email addresses, real life addresses, and phone numbers. Certain application and program profiles are also not acceptable for posting as the applications/programs expose personally identifying contact information.
Because of the many different ages and maturity levels of the users in our forums, when it comes to photos, the standard is that body parts that would be covered by a censor bar on network TV in the United States should they be exposed should also be covered for photos on the Alt12 communities. We call this "swimsuit" coverage. The purpose of the policy is not to censor nursing mothers, but to create an iron-clad and simple rule that everyone can understand as fair when choosing what they will share visually online. Exposure of a nipple or of a whole breast without an article of clothing covering at least 30% of the flesh, even during breastfeeding, does not meet this photo standard.

My cousin thinks 2Pac is alive and makes albums still :/ he can talk for hours about it! My step mom thought alien government satanic things were after her!
I think there are aliens but I don't think they waste their time anal probing anyone on earth. I mean how much info can you really get from anal probing people for so long?? I just think there are intelligent life forms out there.
It's been 3 months since I moved out of state "for a better life"- I used to live in California-
Well... let's go back to when my husband and I got together...
I never really put much attention to how much his obnoxious, disgusting, dumb f*** ing sisters were always there to shove things into his head about me that were ridiculously untrue. I ignored it because hey, I'm not f*** ing them. I got pregnant August 2012. We were living in a one bedroom studio apartment and he was making 12 dollars an hour. We moved into my mother's house to save some cash. That was never really a problem because she was never really home so the place was pretty much ours. We got our baby girl everything she could ever want and need. His sisters began speaking to me because I believe they had no other choice my husband took me with him everywhere. I never asked for a baby shower because I saw no need for it until my husband had said to me "hey it's our first baby we should do something nice" so I said ok. My husband told his sisters that he wanted a baby shower for me. Well my "surprise baby shower" consisted of a cheese cake 3 gifts 2 balloons and a strand that said "it's a girl". Like I said, didn't really want one so whatever. Buttt It hurt. It really did. It's the thought that counts at least I thought for a moment but I had caught my husband and his sisters at Wal-Mart before going to this surprise shower. He bought the gifts for them to give me... before this two of his three sisters were pregnant and their baby showers were off the top beautiful and amazing. I hated them even more from that moment on... Well, 2 weeks before I gave birth one of his sisters moved to oregon and that was one thing off our backs. No more rides, no more favors, no more giving her money and no more taking her fat ass take out because she was too lazy to cook. I had to stand that for about a year. I've got a lot more to b**** about her but honestly it's 2:30 am... anyways, my husband and I were doing ok until his sister began to put s*** into his head that everything was better in Oregon. Rent was cheap no taxes blah blah. Let me include the pot smoking problem he had. She told him that the jobs in Oregon paid over 13 bucks no matter where you worked. By the end of June he was convinced. I wanted to die. Just drop dead right there. He insisted that we were going to live with her for no more than 2 months. I told him to go ahead and move to oregon with her and to come pick us up when he had a place for us. He left the beginning of July. He got there heartbroken. They required urine tests everywhere to apply for a job. The beginning salary was 8.95 and the rents are just 100 bucks cheaper. Oh my god I wanted to chop her f*** ing head off and feed it to the coyotes. He sold his father's day gift I had bought for him -his baby, his pickup- I had sold a lot of other things and he left me with 400 dollars and he took over 2,000 with him. Well, his two other sisters left to oregon with him. He rented a car and took our other car to take our stuff up. He spent ever single f*** ing penny on them buying them beer food take out you name it. I had spent the 400 dollars on bills diapers formula and birth certificates I had to get for our records. I was left with nothing crying hating him. He had 200 dollars left and drove back down to California after 2 weeks. His old boss gave him his job back and we stayed here until September... we've moved to oregon...when we first got here we were 14 f*** ing people living in an apartment for almost two months!!!!!!! The two of his sisters my husband and I were sharing one bathroom and a shower. These women are so f*** ing filthy I was the one washing dishes cleaning the bathroom I had to. I f*** ing pissed there too. I couldn't wash my dishes with the mountain of other dishes in the way. I had fallen into this horribly deep depression where I wouldn't get out of the room if it wasn't necessary... to shower, to wash baby bottles, to use the restroom, to grab something to eat. The less I went out of the room the better. I began to eat less to avoid going out. I would hear their 5 kids screaming crying running playing my 4 month old couldn't sleep. She was getting fussier and fussier because of the lack of sleep. 5 of them moved out... 3 kids one of the sisters and the husband. Relief.. nahh we've got the psycho suicidal 26 year old! She cuts herself and goes about her day showing everyone how she did it and how funny it was. It's more like scraping but you know, whatever gets people's attentionaccording to her. Then there's the mother in law... ice got too much to complain about the time she was here... she's gone thank Jesus. She's planning on coming back I'm hoping she really doesn't. So now my husband is rebelling" hanging out with his brother in law leaving with his sisters to the casino spending money on them. We're paying rent for a room. 325 dollars... I've got about 3-4 feet of walking space in this room... including the part where the door has to open. Help me please, I can't get out of this depression and it seems like my husband can't get us out of here. I've gained weight due to me starving myself for two months. I only eat once a day and every day that goes by I'm just holding on to this little bit of hope... we're here to better ourselves but I'm currently in the room crying while they're blasting the tv watching a movie and drinking when earlier I had begged him to cuddle and watch a movie with me.. I need out.......
I wasn't allowed to watch Barney for some reason, still don't know why lol.
Also what's something you don't/ won't let your kids watch? Why don't you let them watch it?
My son is only 16 days old & I don't really know what I won't have him watch (if there is anything.)
