I'm hungry all the time but I think that's only because I'm still not eating as much as I should from lack of time/ability to prepare. I almost called my dad the other day to come pick us up so he could hold T while I cooked myself something for dinner. I was so hungry I was lightheaded, and she was on a screaming shriek, just barely quiet when I held and bounced her, but full volume with real tears everytime I put her down. I was literally looking up if I could use her carseat without the base when she finally settled in her swing long enough for me to whip up food.
If anyone is interested, I love fitday. it's an online calculator (probably an app too) where you can input your food and exercise-- but what I likw is what it doesn't just count calories, it actually calculates how much of the needed nutrients and vit and minerals you've gotten. I care less if I've eaten my allotment in calories than if I've actually eaten a healthy day, you know? I'm just getting started back on it.
Speaking of sleep... I feel like Tenley is -not- getting enough, and that's why she's in such a rotten mood. She fights it so bad, but she's so cranky. For instance, Sat night, she had a rough night, didn't sleep from 8pm until 130 when she crashed after 2 hours straight of screaming/fussing. Slept until 330am, and then nursed/fussed, wouldn't let me put her down until 6am. Then she slept until 8, and the same kind of thing, she 'slept' from 830 until 930, but fussing constantly. And then was up for the day by 10am. She only napped for about half an hour in the morning, and then for 2 hours in the afternoon (and I fought for every minute of it). Other than that, she only dozed in 10-15 minute spurts at the end of nursing sessions. And we started putting her to bed at 9:30, and she would sleep for 5 minutes and then scream. She fell asleep for the night just ater midnight. So in 24 hours, she slept about 9-10 hours if we're being generous. But she just fights it all day long. It would be one thing if she was up and happy, but she's up and not content unless I'm - holding her, walking the house, while bouncing her, and patting her back, and talking/singing to her. But days when she's actually had good naps, I can pop her in the wrap and talk toher and she'll coo for an hour, or put her in the swing for 20 minutes, and same thing. Days when she hasn't napped, she has none of that. I just can't figure out how to get her to sleep more! She's so stubborn.
MW-- good stuff for Ryan! Sometimes I reallllly need DH here to pass off to, and I feel for you for not having that option. It's nice R was so cognizant of your feelings and need for peace for a bit.
There was something else I wanted to respond to, but I don't remember what it was...
Somebody is coming by today to buy diapers-- I'm selling 6 fuzzibunz with microfibre inserts, 2 NB bummis covers and 10 prefolds, 6 toddler prefolds, and 3 AMP AI2 diapers, for $135. If I remember correctly what I paid for everything, I think that means I'm only 'losing' about $10-15. Not bad for two months worth of wear. I also have someone coming to buy a bag of some of the clothing I pared down, so that's another $10.
And then I'm meeting up with someone to purchase more diapers :) lol I'm getting 3 plain and one printed AMP OS duos, and 4 bamboo inserts, all at a great price. She used them for 3 months, and they're normally $20 each, selling to me for $12, and the inserts are half price. I'm excited. After this we will be good good for our stash until she hits 35lbs.
