What made you cry today? - Page 5

post #81 of 97

I almost cried last night because I feel like dh and I never DTD any more because he's so stressed with work, and I want him ALL.THE.TIME. The problem is that, unlike most men, or at least "stereotypical men", DTD at night wakes dh up and then he's not ready to sleep for hours. So if he can't get destressed from work early enough, or we have a lot going on in the evening, by the time we get to bed, he just needs to go to sleep so he can get up for work the next day. Which leaves me very frustrated. I tried waking him up in the middle of the night last night, because if he's already half asleep (like in the morning), he can usually go back to sleep afterwards, but he wouldn't do it. So I wish that we could husband-swap, ladies!

See, and I feel bad because I don't want to DTD.  I've had just about no libido since I had my first, and I know it frustrates him.  But I'm just so not into it, and it makes me feel bad.

Yeah, I'm a total oddball. I already had a higher libido than dh before getting pregnant, and it's kicked into overdrive once I was about 6 weeks pregnant. DTD was actually one of the few things that would temporarily put my all-day morning sickness at bay in those early weeks.

DTD is the one thing I can count on to make my Restless Leg Syndrome go away :)

I have dealt with this as well. Actually, the only time I did have a libido since my first pregnancy was when I was on an anti-anxiety medication. I guess that explains some things. greensad.gif

I cried today because my nausea is back and I don't think I'll make it if it lasts any longer. I am seconds away from calling for a zofran script. It's depressing because I'm trying to be as med free as possible.

 

I also cried because of the cloth diapering conversation on the boards. Yeah - I know. WEAK! lol

((HUGS)) I hope your feeling better soon.

If you don't mind me asking? What about the cloth diaper discussion made you cry (if you even know, I understand how that goes)?

Like the ultrasound thing in another thread, weighing medical need against being natural does suck, but you shouldn't feel guilty about it! If you've done what you can to naturally alleviate the nausea and it's not going away, please don't hesitate to call for the scrip. Your baby and your body both need their nutrition! hug2.gif

Thebyr, I wouldn't worry about getting the Zofran either if your m/s is really bad.  I can't keep anything down if I don't take it, so I figure that if I'm getting nutrients, it has got to be better than not taking it.

Thebyr - If you don't want to do meds, try acupuncture. Seriously. It's the only way I've been able to eat through this pregnancy. It's amazing.

lol Lacto - I cried merely because picking out cloth diapers means that I'm that much closer to having a baby. They were happy tears - I should have said that.

 

Aimee and Veritas - you both are right - I'll give it one more week before I call my midwife for the zofran.. Might try an acupuncturist before then Sallyrae. Thanks for that info.

LOL, I understand that. Happy tears are always good wink1.gif

I watched 50/50 (the movie about the young guy with cancer) and while I thought it was great, I looked over at the end and DH was tearing up.  Hilarious!  A hormonal pregnant lady managed to hold it together but my lovely husband was crying.  He tried to do the whole, "There's something in my eye!", but I'm wasn't buying it.

 

Thebyr, I know I've said it before, but I'm really sorry you're going through all this.  Being constantly nauseous is one of the worst feelings in the world.  I really hope you get some relief, whether from the second tri, acupuncture, or meds.

I cried this weekend when I went to "The Descendents." Actually, I pretty much cried throughout the entire freaking movie. It was good, but I wish I would have seen Hugo or something. I was a mess.

 

Today, I cried tears of joy at hearing my babe's heartbeat for the first time! I agree about happy tears being the best tears!

I watched "You've Got Mail"!

Thebyr - as I mentioned in another thread, be cautious when you start the Zofran. I started mine on Monday night and my doc didn't tell me how severely constipating it is. I felt so much better for the first couple of days and then woke up pukey again today - it turns out it was a symptom of the constipation. I should have been taking a stool softener from the beginning (talk to your doc about a safe one). Don't make the same mistake I did because today is awful and it may take a few days to get out this mess.

I cried today when I was totally exhausted and DH was in the other room watching a movie while I was doing laundry, making dinner etc etc etc.. I just felt an overwhelming sense of disappointment and fear about adding 2 more to this when sometimes the weight of doing everything feels horribly imbalanced.
