:LOL The love's pretty good around here... but things are so different from the way they were before Eli was born!
Once upon a time, I felt like I had to beg all the time. I was much
more interested than Mike was.
He felt like he was working, it was literally a chore for him, and I was barely getting by. :LOL When I got pregnant with Eli, I fell asleep for the entire first trimester and when I was awake I was sick, so I wasn't asking nearly as much and I got almost as much as I wanted. :LOL The second trimester I was back to begging again, but by the third I'd started in with preterm labor and I was really huge and uncomfortable and *he* started begging. He was pretty unhappy until about 8 weeks pp.
Since then, we run for the bedroom every time Eli is asleep and both of us are awake. It's really very funny. :LOL He goes down for a nap, we look at each other and it's a race to see who can get there first. :LOL
: So niether of us is begging, niether of us is getting as much as we'd like, but when we do we're both really happy!
It's a nice change of pace for me, not to feel like I'm desperate all the time and for him not to feel like he's doing another household chore. I'm just now getting to the point where most positions are uncomfortable, but Mike is so happy that I'm not homocidal and angry and miserable all the time that it doesn't matter too much. We're doing just fine.
I am not feeling too well today. I've got this dull backache that won't go away, a headache, and I'm vaguely nauseated. Eli's being really sweet, but he doesn't want to stay in bed all day. And he still really really wants to be out of diapers.
If I wasn't afraid of someone calling CPS, I'd let him run naked in the backyard all day and try to put him on the potty when he looks like he's about to go... *sigh* I feel so bad for him, he's really trying and I'm just not with it at all.
All I want to do is go back to sleep.
