I'm going to catch up on this thread later, but can I just say ... MAY-JOR stress on the home front. DD has been sick all week, fever Sun-Wed and bad cough, but yesterday started SCREAMING about her ear. We never go to pedi for sick visits, but we went! And she had an ear infection. Of course I want to avoid giving anti-b's, and DD wants to avoid taking Motrin, so it was a LONG night. I feel so bad for baby having to listen to all that screaming and me so stressed because of it And of course, I had class in the morning, so I had to miss my first, and have an exam in a few minutes .... I did, however, get my Enya CD I'd reserved from the library, and it helped me SO MUCH on my commute to class. I felt like I'd forgotten I was loved and supported by the universe, and I remembered. I need so much to just LET GO and trust. I'm hoping I can cultivate that more before baby comes.
Also, 27 WEEKS TODAY! Only one more week in the second trimester! And I get to go to the birth cottage for a prenatal this week- after this one, it's twice monthly, baby!
Today is a weird one.. It is the day I was due to be born (so the point I realis my bday is in 3 weeks-eek!!) it is my sisters bday.. I am exactly 7 months pregnant (worked out from counting months from last period way).. It's also 7 months since my last miscarriage.. And 7 months since all the chaos that surrounded that.. An it is my lovely friend who hung herself nearly 5years she's birthday.. Hard day.. Day of things to come.. Day of celebration.. So many things for one day..
This week I have started to feel really quite uncomfortable back pain wise.. My tummys started to stick out and altho my weights stayed the same for. Few weeks now I feel it.. I guess from the way I'm holding my body.. Plus I have another kidney infection and it is causing a lot of back pain..ouch!!
An on my phone but will catch up on you all later.. In a bit lost ATM.. Bf isn't getting any better sand I just don't know how much more I can take.. But I feel I've put too much in to give up how.. And giving up certainly isn't what I want.. But what if I go through all this and then I get nothing from this.. Along with a new baby.. Can I cope with that? There's no telling me sense sometime tho.. I very rarely fall in love and when I do.. I cannot do logic I am 100% emotionally driven with undertones of logical screaming underneath!! Lol sorry to just moan moan moan lately
BaileyB, awesome about the jogging stroller, I was exhausted yesterday too, it sucked! Seem to be better today a bit. I think I've just been staying up a bit too late and then not sleeping well.
OtherMother, sorry about your DDs ear infection, I had a lot as a kid. Our DD has had a few, but we've been lucky to catch all of them early. I don't like overuse of antibiotics, but I do use them (making sure to do the full course) for ear infections as they HURT when they get bad. I know they aren't always bacterial, but a lot of them are, and doing the full course makes it very unlikely you are contributing to super-bugs. So glad the Enya CD helped you relax, I know I have some music that is my goto when I'm feeling stressed too.
timewsay, wow, that's a lot for one day! Sorry for all the discomfort I'm so sorry to hear about your BF, but I will tell you if he does flake out you will be fine! I'm not saying it won't be sad and hard at times, but you are strong and you can do it on your own if it comes to that. I'm still hoping he'll turn it around for you, but you'll do fine. And I don't know anyone who doesn't get mixed up when it comes to their own relationships. I'm pretty logical most of the time, but I always needed friends/family to help me get perspective when in a relationship because there are just too many emotions to mix you up!
I was so exhausted yesterday, it sucked! I even took a ~2 hour nap, which helped, but still so tired. Also was not very hungry yesterday. I think I'm better today on the tired front, but I don't know if it will last. We (well DH mostly) got the kitchen 75% cleared out yesterday, just need to do the rest today and move some furniture. We're going to pick up some big furniture sliders for the one couch as it is too heavy for me to lift right now. The rest DH can move by himself except our dining table, but it isn't heavy, so we can do that together. Need to buy some disposable plates, cups, bowls & silverware today too. We are both so happy we had the basement redone as we are going to be living out if mostly the next 3-4 weeks! I just hope we have some warm days so we can use our grill, not that you can't use it when its cold, but brrr. Everything is ready to go, just waiting on the backsplash tile to come and cabinet pulls to arrive (should be this week probably) and the carpet is ordered, so that should come in a week or two. We decided to let them move the furniture so they can get the carpet done in one day, we just have to clear stuff off the tops of it and get any electronics stashed somewhere (going in the bathrooms!) Can't wait for that to be done. I got most of the laundry done yesterday and running my last load of dishes now before we pack the rest away. It will be nice when its done, that's for sure!
Also, our big TV we just got in December now has a red vertical line in it. We called the warranty place and they are sending someone out Friday. Luckily, that TV is the one we won't be watching for the next 3-4 weeks anyway, so I guess it worked out timing wise and it is under warranty so they will replace it if isn't fixable. It's an LED LCD and I guess it is one of the most common problems with those, so we're the "lucky" ones!
Hi everyone I don't have time to catch up on everyone's posts right now because I'm on my mobile but I'll try to catch up on the next thread tomorrow.
This is been quite the weekend. We went up to the in-laws for DH's grandma's funeral and stayed with the brother and sister-in-law. They have two little girls close in age to Ds so that was fun but the sleeping arrangements weren't good. Essentially there was a very hard double bed for DH and I and a crib mattress on the floor for DS who of course did not want to sleep on it. So half the night all3 of us squeezed in and the other half I shared the bed with DS and DH slept on the sofa. DS also refused to nap the entire weekend. Add to that a busy, stressful family funeral, very unhealthy food, no privacy....i just am ready to be home. And we would be, except a blizzard has rolled thru so we are staying in a hotel half way home. We'll be up early tomorrow for the other 3 hrs of the drive so DH doesn't miss a full day of work. Thankfully i already booked it off.
Anyway, sorry for the short, whiney post. I'll try to catch up tomorrow and im sure i'll be in better spirits after some sleep. Fingers crossed we all get some sleep tonite!
