Yay for a break from the 'roids, sego! ;)
mamabeakley, that was my ds1, too! He didn't go longer than 2.5 hours without nursing ALL NIGHT LONG that whole time, either. So I night weaned at age 2, and made a huge, hairy deal about his own bed, his own space, and he loved getting to fall asleep holding my hand, and all I had to do to settle him back to sleep if he were stirring was to put my hand on him. Honestly, I felt stupid for not making the decision earlier, lol. DS2 was easier, since he could share a queen with his big brother, but he still comes into our be about once a month or so in the middle of the night.
AFM, I *woke up* this morning with heartburn. WTF? I used to have gastic ulcers and esophageal ulcers from acid/reflux issues and fought tooth and nail to get off all the proton pump inhibitors and such (by eliminating a huge, long list of food intolerances). I've had to take Pepcid for at least 4 days in the last week. I don't want to go back to that misery & I'm worried I'm making it more likely by taking the freaking meds, but can't really function without them. Stupid relaxin acting on my esophagus and stupid short torso allowing such early pushing against my stomach by my other innards. I guess I'll live, though, lol. I've been having a lot of BH, as it seems several of us have. I've also noticed that I'm starting to retain a bit of water. Still nowhere near edema-level, but my feet and ankles aren't bony and my normally-falling-off wedding band actually took effort to get back on today after some icky food prep. I wonder if that's not related to the BH. I'm trying to make sure I get tons of salt, as that has always helped to regulate it for me in the past, but maybe I need to pick up the water EVEN more?
In non-pg-related news, DS1 and I had a fantastic homeschooling day today. It took us forever to finish our list of subjects, but that was only because we kept getting into fabulous conversations about other, somewhat tangential stuff, digging deeper into what he was interested in learning about, etc. (For better or worse, he's the young male clone of me, it seems, and I LOVE that he adores the same subjects as I do and learns in much the same way--I get to dig into things I didn't get a chance to investigate as fully as I'd have liked because we had to switch subjects all the time in school.)
