This pregnancy is kind of a blessing. With everything that's happened this pregnancy, I'd probably be an alcoholic if it wasn't for this little girl of mine. Haha.

Nicole, alcohol is my best friend. Sort of... Just kidding... No, I'm totally serious.
We have a full house again! Dsd just returned from 2 weeks with her mom's family, and dd1 and dd2 are fully back from spending two weekends with their dad (they've been here on weekdays). Crazy- school starts in two weeks!
Nicole, great picture! Also glad that the counselling is helping.
Ash, I love reading along about your recovery!
*sigh* The jetlag effected Eli way worse than I thought it would. He is not sleeping well, not napping at all and just so miserable. He whined and cried all of yesterday.... it was a nightmare. He usually goes to bed at 10pm and sleeps till 8am. Now he is waking up at 6am and is so cranky but won't go back to sleep. I wish we hadn't gone away - he was sleeping so well.
Sonja, he will probably adjust in a few days. Sorry!
Joanie, yeah we start early. Kids get out usually the second to last week in May, then go back the second week of August. Dsd and dd1 start Aug 7, and dd2 starts Aug 12. And hooray for 2 of the 3 riding the bus this year! I may end up transferring dd2 to a new school... still debating. Then she would ride the bus, too. (Not my reason for switching, though.) Ahhhhh!!! I have 4 kids in 4 different schools!!
Took DD1 to an audiologist yesterday. We have been telling her family doc for the last year that we don't think she is hearing very well. It quickly escalated from just suspecting it based on behaviors to her telling us all the time that she can't hear. She is always saying "speak louder mommy, I can't hear you!" I finally had to insist on the referral and I was right! Neither of her ear drums are moving at all. Lots of fluid built up, swollen tonsils and adenoids. They put her on a strong antibiotic (cefdinir?). We go back in a couple weeks to check her hearing again to see if the antibiotic helped. I am suspecting it won't, ear infections have never been her problem. She has only had two in her whole life. If it doesn't work, we'll be looking at tubes and taking out her adenoids. Of course that will fall right when school starts up again...
Off this weekend for a ladies road trip! DH gets the girls to himself for the whole weekend, haha!
We don't have school for more than a month. I refuse to think about it. We start school pretty late here compared to other places.
I'm just hanging out in bed some more today. Going to try less pain meds and see how it goes.
Mal, keep us posted on the ear situation!
Ash, doing better today? Seems like you're a bit more alert. How's your pain level?
Sonja, I have to say that just about after every trip we take I curse having gone b/c sleep is so awful. As they get older this gets better, but with the little ones, well... I hope your experience is different than mine! :)
Nicole, lookin' good! In what ways has this pregnancy been different than your first?
Mal, where are you going on your trip? I’m jealous… I need to have a girls’ weekend! Good luck with your dd. Goodness… it took long to diagnosis her! I wish there was a better way to test hearing… Jasper’s been tested twice now with inconclusive results both times. It’s annoying.
I’m ready to leave work… sigh… I need to stay a little longer.
It’s my birthday on Sunday. I’m celebrating by…. letting dd1 have three sisters she is friends with spend the night Saturday night. Woo! Party time for me!
I feel different today. Less pain but more nausea and dizziness, and I have just a general discomfort where my uterus was. I'm trying to take less meds today...but there is a trade off.
That is a good framework to have, thanks Sara. It has not been fun. Eli is just really cranky and whiny... just didn't seem worth it. The visit to my inlaws was okay, but I didn't enjoy the less than subtle hints that my MIL was throwing my way about Eli being "too attached" to me.
Happy Birthday Amanda! Good luck with the sleep over
I can eat meat this time. That's a huge one.
No carpal tunnel.
No swelling... yet.
Less weight gain.
More morning sickness.
Her movements are more exasperated. He just punched and kicked me. She like, sticks her butt out and goes across my whole belly real slow.
That's all I have right now. I'm on the verge of falling asleep as I type.
