Now she emailed me saying she's not comfortable having the next baby around Sora unvaccinated. It hit me hard. She is the first friend of mine soon to become a SAHM, and I've been excited her whole pregnancy thinking of future playdates and spending time together on a regular basis. *sigh*
That irks me for you. S*** happens, you know? Not saying that your kiddo will get hers sick... It's just, ugh, people. I get crap for not being more "clean" around Conner... Like letting him put everything in his mouth, and letting him crawl around outside without shoes and stuff, and I'm just like... "Okay. So when you're bleached baby gets sick 10x more than Conner does, come and see me." And it's true. Conner has yet to get sick (Minus his ear infection) and my germ freak of a friend's has already been sick 3 times.
And while we are TTC, I'd say we're more NTNP, because I'm being really lazy about it. If it doesn't happen on it's own by the first of the year, I'm going back on BC until May, because I refuse to have more holiday babies, LOL. And surprisingly, my "A Baby Story" obsessed husband is okay with it. His fever is 1234284x worse than mine is, I swear. Once I quit BC in May, then I'll actually start temping/charting/etc.
Conner's birthday party is Sunday. While I'm uber, uber excited about this coming up, there's still that little voice in the back of my head who keeps reminding me of how bitter I am about his birth. I really hope that his actual birth DAY isn't rained on because I can't get over my feelings.
I have my yearly check-up at the end of November with my OB/GYN. I'm going to reiterate with him AGAIN about my desire for a VBAC, and if he's still okay with it, cool. If not, I'll be looking for a new OB/GYN.
I'm sorry so many of you are still having sleep issues. =( My kiddo is still sleeping 16/24 hours a day. 8p-8a, then 9a-11a, and 2p-4p. I wonder if this will cut back after his 6 teeth the dentist said he has coming in finish cutting. He's already got one molar popped through, and the dentist said the other 3 are sitting right there, waiting to pop. He also said his other two bottom teeth are right there, as well.
As for the grinding, he wasn't concerned at all about it (Just like you guys weren't, LOL). He said that it's normal when molars are coming through, because they're the biggest teeth Conner will experience, and a lot of times, babies grind their teeth to try to relieve some of the pressure they have in their mouth from those teeth trying to pop through. He said no intervention is necessary unless I noticed him causing damage to the enamel on his teeth.
I had two interviews yesterday for "big girl jobs" that'll help DH and I financially SO. MUCH. One is full-time, one is part-time. I honestly don't care which one I get, because it'd still be more income than I have right now. I won't be quitting at the animal emergency clinic I'm at, because I like that job too much, but it'll be nice to have more income. I'm so tired of stressing over paying the damn bills. It's retarded. I should find out next week about them, so cross your fingers for me.
