The ONE Thread- June chit chat - Page 4

post #61 of 107

The weaning is bittersweet. I'd love for DD to wean (26 months) because it's back to being really painful. It seems like the pain is mostly DD's latch - she seems to simultaneously want to nurse and dislike nursing, so she latches lazily, then pulls away as far as she can while nursing. Yeowtch! We are only nursing when it is necessary for my sanity - to get her back to sleep at night, to go for a nap, when she wakes up in a grump. Otherwise I actually tell her "No" when she asks to nurse, because I just can't take it. But at the same time, nursing is so sweet and special and I am glad we're still working at it, and I know I would mourn it if she did decide to stop altogether. But I don't know how much longer I can take the pain!

 

I was actually pretty much decided on weaning her against her inclination because it was hurting, but also because she was nursing through the night like a newborn, and I wasn't getting the sleep I needed. But then, all of a sudden, she decided that she wanted to sleep in her own bed, and after a week we had a few nights in a row where she slept there all night, through the night. So now I'm definitely not going to pile both weaning and independent sleep on her, because I think that would just be too much for her dear sensitive little soul. She's also doing great with the potty learning too, so it's a lot of independent steps for one little person!

 

It's amazing how much a second pregnancy can fade into the background of family life - I was amazed to realize that at 19 weeks I am nearly halfway through the count! The niblet inside is already 6 inches long!

Feeling like crap today. We had to put my dog down. The last time I had hyperemesis (pg #1), I jokingly called her my pregnancy doula. She would lay in bed with me, and when I got up and was in the bathroom getting sick, she was right there. On nights when I was so sick I couldn't even go back to bed and wound up sleeping on the bathroom floor (I kept a quilt in there for that reason), she would let me lay on her belly as a pillow. <3 I've been crying all day.

 

And now I'm attempting to finish and entire cherry cheesecake just because I can.

I'm so sorry about your loss! I had to put down my dog this February, and it was the hardest thing ever.  He was rottweiler, doberman, pitbull mix, which are "vicious breeds" but he would not hurt a fly unless it came to protecting me and my kids. He was so smart and loving, but he had hip displacia which is common in dobermans and alot of mix breed dogs, and it made it impossible for him to get up and down stairs, stand up, lay down, and on cold days, he wouldn't get up. He was 10 years old. I got his ashes in a pine box and plan on having it engraved. Are you doing anything in her memory or having her cremated so you can have her with you? Not being nosey, it just helps to talk about it if you're up to it. Hugs to you! hug2.gif

We didn't have her cremated, I think having the ashes here would actually make it worse for my girls. The vet's office is making us a plaster mold of her pawprint for the kids to have.

Sorry, I meant to write HER, not him. I feel like a dummy now. I'll edit my post....

I think the plaster mold for the pawprint is an awesome idea.

No big deal. I used boy/girl interchangeably since we had her and our male dachshund as well. LOL

So cute: We were at a pox party at the home of the midwife I used with the younger two. I asked to use her doppler to check heartbeat, and asked DD1 if she wanted to come hear the baby. No, she didn't; she wanted to be the one to check for the heartbeat! Well, the midwife had shown her how at prenatals with dd2 and dd3. So she got the gel, put it on my belly, turned the doppler on, and found the baby's heartbeat right away. It was sweet!

post #73 of 107
I'm super envious of your pox party! Very cute that your daughter was able to find the heartbeat- a future midwife for sure!

Hope everyone is doing well and having a great Father's Day. DH and DD are visiting with DH's dad right now, so I have a little bit of me time for the moment.

 

We were supposed to have our ultrasound Friday to confirm the sex of this baby, but they called me first thing in the morning to say their sonographer was sick so we had to reschedule. greensad.gif Now, I got on Tuesday morning and can't wait! I was super bummed because I had taken the day off work, DH had taken off and my mom was getting off work early... all to go to the sonogram and make a special day of it and we didn't get to. Now, DH can't take off Tuesday to go so he's going to miss it. My mom is still able to go with me, so we're going to take my daughter and make it special for her.

Mallory, that sucks that your special sono day was ruined!  I'm sorry!  Not all places will let you, but maybe you can take some technology with you to either get a recording or make a recording of the sono.  Just a thought.

hey moms-to-be! Is anyone having crazy pregnancy sex drive? I never expected this!

 

and on the other side from sexy, I have sneeze-pee already, and this is only my first baby AND I have always done kegel exercises and have formerly been, perhaps, a little too proud of my urinary continence. Boo to sneeze pee.

LOL!  I've been a sneeze peer since my first baby.  It's awesome (not). And I've had many a sex dream with this pregnancy, but I can't seem to summon up the time or energy to make it a reality.

 I'm with you on both.  But DH is still freaked out by intimacy with a baby in there.  Especially since he's been able to feel our LO move.  It was adorable, the other day DH was lying on my tummy, and our LO kicked him in the face.  It was so sweet, but at the same time I was thinking "Mama's not going to be getting busy for a while."  The last time we got busy, as DH was climbing off (sorry for TMI visual) he blurted out "is LO ok?  Did we hurt him?  Do you think he knows?"  Boom, goes Mama's good mood crashing down.  Sigh.

 

And I'm definitely sneeze peeing.  I was in a store the other day, sneezing like crazy, and crossing my legs hard trying not to pee myself, knowing that everyone around me knew what I was doing.  At that point I wished I looked more visibly pregnant so I wouldn't look like a total nutso.

Gah! I'm so annoyed with my dr's office right now!! They have rescheduled my sonogram AGAIN! I now haven't been seen by my midwife in 6 weeks, we had pushed it back a week so I could see her and get my sonogram on the same day and now with it being rescheduled TWICE, it'll be exactly 6 weeks since I've been seen.

 

Apparently their sonographer's son is very sick and being admitted to the hospital, which I get, I feel for her. I just don't understand why they haven't gotten someone to fill in for her by now. This is the 4th day in a row they've had to cancel all their sonograms, surely I'm not the only patient getting pissy with them. I mean, their office is in a very large hospital and there is another women's clinic right next door to them... why has it taken them this long to get someone to fill in? It didn't help that the woman I talked to today was a total bitch about it and extremely unhelpful. So, of course, I was a tad bit bitchy right back to her and very annoyed that I now have to rearrange my work schedule THREE times within a week just to get this sonogram done. A different woman called me back a little later and said they have someone coming to fill in tomorrow, so I can come first thing in the morning. Now, I'm just crossing my fingers they don't cancel on me again now that I've taken off work for the third time.
