Hmmm... nursing pjs. I've never had any. It sounds like a good idea, but not for me until like 6 months or later - before then, my supply is so crazy high that I just soak EVERYTHING. In the beginning, I can't even really nurse lying down because my kids choke if I don't pump some off first. Great, right? When I first heard about oversupply, I thought, "Wow! What an awesome problem to have." And yes, I prefer it to having a low supply, but it's really not that fun. All that said, maybe later, nursing pjs would be nice.
And speaking of nursing pjs, that made me think of stuff to buy. I know there are others out there on #3... I felt like with #1, I bought a ton of stuff (obviously - I had nothing!), but with #2, I didn't need to buy anything. Now, with #3, I'm feeling like I'm almost up to #1 buying "needs." My kids aren't that far apart (ODS is 5, YDS is 2.5), but I just feel like after 5 years of use, a lot of stuff is getting ratty (infant seat, stroller, maternity clothes, etc.) I should add that we have cousins whose kids are sandwiched between mine, so things keep getting handed down the line. So, for instance, our infant seat has been used by ODS, YDS, and Cousin #2. That's the way a lot of stuff has gone. (And I put "needs" in quotes, because most things I don't really need... except an infant seat, but would like to replace.) Anyone else feel that way?
CoffeeBean, I totally hear you on the hunger, BUT I'm impressed that you managed to keep it away this long! With all three of my kids, I have had an outrageous hunger streak starting approximately 1 second after getting my BFP (or even before!). So this time around, I was famished from before I knew I was pregnant, until m/s hit, and then, I was alternately famished and gross. Now things are seeming to level off a bit. I've actually started tracking what I eat using an iPhone app (MyFitnessPal, for anyone who's interested). I've found that I feel better (nausea- and hunger-wise) when I'm keeping track of what I'm eating and ensuring that I'm eating healthy foods, rather than following whatever crazy craving I'm having (which I also do sometimes!). I'm not going overboard with the tracking - I just like to know. Finally, I have all but given up on real meals. Instead, I wake up and have a snack. A couple of hours later (so like 8:00 am!), I have another little snack, and so it goes throughout the day. And I *try* to have snacks that have both carbs and protein, so just a piece of fruit doesn't really cut it for me. Fruit and cheese? Now you're talking :) I'm finding that if I let myself get too hungry, then I eat a ton (like I did around 3:30 yesterday afternoon), and then I feel gross/nauseated/heartburn-y (too sick to eat any part of dinner with my family), but if I eat lots of small things throughout the day, I feel a lot better.
