hugs mamas!   i'm normally petite and fit and pregnancy just turns it upside down.  but i'm also mostly pregnant.  so it works out.   but it sucks to feel out of control HUGE.   just wait.   my babies are all healthy sized (7-8 1/2 lbs) and i gain 50lbs each pregnancy.  and lost it all in less than 9 months.     i eat well, but not too little, and exercise as i can.  and nurse.  and life is hard.  but i recover (w/ a few more stretch marks than i think i...
my poor husband- my 'prepregnancy weight' is just that.  he LOVES my waist.  he loves my non pregnant body and gets so excited when he thinks it's gonna last.  but he also has a visceral response to my fat belly body. i'm so grateful for both!!!     i'm so looking forward to a season of sex w/out pregnancy.  i'm kinda terrified.  cause we haven't had that yet!    in 2004 at his restaurant, he once saw a pregnant woman come in wearing a broom stick skirt, men's shirt,...
my 6 year old said 'wow mommy, your belly is getting BIG!  how big is the baby now?' undeniably round and rolling w/ it.  
^^^many of my LO's self-weaned around 18 months.  my first son did, my 4th as well.  pretty much once they stopped needing it they moved on and were so happy being independent.  i actually wasn't able to convince them to nurse longer!  they liked the freedom.  i still nursed for boo-boos for a little bit longer, but that was it.     fingers crossed for nights to come easily!!!
i'm just now facing the 'this might be the last time' and it's surprisingly intense for me!  i love babies (2 new ones at church and i want to steal them and snuggle them), i love my little toddler, i love my children.  part of me is ready to be done w/ being a manatee shaped seedpod for another human, and part of me will always cherish it.  probably good to stop while i'm still in love w/ this all!!!  this pregnancy has been so easy that i'm really kinda struggling w/...
nice thoughts!  he does like cucumber.  blueberries are his favorite food right now and he's being stubborn and often demanding ONLY blueberries multiple times a day.  but i do often make rice or quinoa cereal in the morning and could make his soupier b/c i still spoon feed that ONE food to him!
i'm feeling the same way about my thighs.  i was doing SO WELL at exercising up til these last 2 weeks.  but then rescheduling, husband travel, and honestly a lot more sickness around here (for the last 3 days the hubby!) have made me just have to back up.  not that exercise was helping my thighs.  but i felt like i was trying harder! so you don't feel bad, i'm NOT indulging in sweets and my saddlebags and love handles are INSANE!  hormones! getting BH towards the end of...
the only thing he does w/ any device filled w/ liquids is dump it (often forcefully if it doesn't easily spill) all over himself, his high chair tray, or anyone holding him....   lately i've been much better about drinking and have been nursing him 4-6x a day.  my supply has increased and he seems fine.  i'm just tired!!!  i would rather not be his sole source of liquids!!!
egads, i missed you ladies!!!     saw the title to this thread and had to catch up.   What are you doing to boost your immunity? daily- 5000iu vit D, 500 some measurement chelated magnesium, eating almost paleo (cheese joined the menu this week for the first time in 5 months), laying down by 9:30 almost every night and not getting up til baby does around 7:30, pilates, and laying down for an hour each day w/ a book or a dumb movie or just to close my eyes....
HUGS!!!! that's a LOT to be taking on and processing!!! my husband and i have had to step away from the NFP thing and reconsider as we just weren't at peace (after our 3 charting surprises) continuing having kids at the rate we were.  AND the sheer amount of abstinence, even w/ all our spirituality and closeness, was really wearing.  i've so loved being pregnant b/c we don't have the stress of pregnancy hanging over us.  but i'm exhausted and i can't be the mother i need...
