LOL. Thank you. While I did give up my liter-a-day Mt. Dew habit, I still drink a caffeinated soda a few times a week!!

I can't wait for that first post-birth margarita!

OK, Quagmire, you can be my friend

-I drink a cup of regular coffee every morning. I get up half an hour before I have to so I can sit in peace, before I get the kids up and get everybody ready for school and work, and I drink a cup of coffee and catch up on MDC. You'll always see posts by me between 6:30 and 7:00 am for this reason.

- I haven't taken a prenatal vitamin in weeks. OK months. OK I never took them. I've supplemented certain things (folic acid, the B's, whatever I feel my diet is lacking) but I've not even done those in the past few weeks.

-I was also lying on my back until recently, when I discovered I couldn't breathe.

-I still wedge pillows under me and lie on my stomach.

-I carry my toddler all the time, but I make DH carry everything else.

-I wear the same four shirts to work every week. I used to try to remember if this is the same shirt I wore last Monday, but I no longer care. I have decided that my patients are lucky I show up at all, and the shower I took was a bonus for them.

-I really really want a glass of wine, so I am going to have one right now.

Don't worry, I'm not as crazy as that just sounded.
It doesn’t sound crazy at all. It’s called being a mother. But pace yourself! This is just the first of a lifetime of moments where you may feel like you’re damaging your child, or not being a good enough mom. The fact that you worry at all shows how much you love the kid already.

Me too! And I really should be more vigilant, since ds was a posterior birth, which I can thank for the wicked back labor. :

Thank you. I peed my pants when I read that. I gotta go change now.

I too have the 4 shirt wardrobe at this point. Now that I have soiled on of them, I am down to three, and I wasn't gonna do laundry this weekend. Thanks a lot.

What a great thread...Let's see...

*I just finished eating a Filet-o-Fish sandwich and fries from McDonald's

*I never cook anymore, just spend $10-20 a day on whatever I am craving for lunch.

*I have a closet full of cute newborn girlie clothes that i don't plan to wash.

*I drink unsweetened iced tea ALL day long, probably way over the caffeine limit.

*I secretly feel superior to other moms who I see giving their babies a bottle.:

*I haven't eaten any meat except fish since last July, but I crave deli meat sandwiches EVERY day...haven't caved in yet though

*I cleaned the litter box yesterday because DF had the flu and the house stank like pee.

*I want to get rid of my one cat because for some reason I just don't like him and he annoys me, even though he causes no trouble and is the best cat ever compared to my other two trouble-making demon cats who I love- I am a terrible person!

*I crave Pepsi and sometimes drink it.

*I have no desire to clean my house, and expect my DF to do it when he gets home from working 8 hours of hard manual labor when i have been sitting on my a*$ all day reading MDC!

*I am practically glued to my computer.

*I spend WAY too much time on MDC

*I am thrilled to be having a girl, and don't think I would be as excited if I was having a boy.

*I am secretly looking forward to being a stay-at-home mom and not having to work and living off DF's income even though I just graduated college and have $80,000 in student loans.

Ok I think I am done for now......hehe

Oh boy howdy!!!!

-I am ready to sell my son to the gypsies!!! If I have to chase a 2 year old ONE MORE TIME into the street or through the mall (and have people laugh at me and not even THINK to stop him) I will SCREAM!!!!!
However..my husband has taken on more responsibility with ds and is letting me sleep alone in our king size bed, ah it is heaven!

-I LOVE my ice cream!!! I went to DQ today after my chiro appointment and got a chocolate cone dipped in butterscotch. It was divine!

-7-11 has really good chocolate donuts...they go great with dr. pepper! :

-I wholeheartedly agree with the, "Are you SURE there's not twins in there????" or "You are SO BIG"!!! No? Really??? At least I have an EXCUSE for being this big!!!! :

-I am not eating so healthy this time. Veggies just don't do it for me. Give me popcicles and watermelon and brownies and ice cream everyday...I'm a happy girl.

-Exercise????? Hmm....I think I abandoned that one in March.

-I really want to start using EPO at 37 weeks (in 2 weeks!!!!) because I am sick of being pregnant and being sore.

-I am done...done...done!
post #27 of 171
I have never taken a prenatal vitamin

I want to sell my children...to whomever

I want a girl

I love donuts (though they have to be GF because I have celiac disease and they cost $7 for 6 donuts)

I was a saint for the first 2 trimesters and now all I want to eat is raw meat and aforementioned donuts

I haven't washed a single baby anything and I don't want to

I spend alot of time yelling from the couch. My 2 and 3 year old just drive me batty

We're moving in three weeks and I haven't packed a thing

I wake up on my back every morning (how does that happen????)

I feel like a bad mama and that I have no business having another. We can't afford it and I didn't want to have another at all, let alone now. I am being very negative and cranky with everyone and have no idea what I'm going to do in another 6 weeks
post #28 of 171
'kay-- here goes!

-i've still been occasionally eating sushi (although i am a little more careful about which types)
-i am secretly hoping at this point to give birth around 37 weeks (only a week and a half away) and no longer care if i make it to 40 b/c the twins are huge and soooooo low and like someone else said: "I am done, done, done!"
-my stretch marks have stretch marks
-i am also still picking up my almost 30 lb. toddler although not quite as much anymore
-i would also seriously contemplate homocide for a glass of white wine
-i don't think i'm going to call my mom to come over during the birth after all because one of the babies is breech and i don't think i can handle her not handling being around for that when it happens
-i've deliberately let my kitchen floor get pretty gross because at 37 weeks i'm going to get down on my hands and knees and scrub it in the hopes of encouraging the babies to come
-i crave ice water and chew the ice all day long (at least i'm getting my water intake )

Another confession:

- I do a number of the things people have listed here as "confessions" and I would never even think to feel guilty about them.

Jessica, your list cracked me up!

Can I tell you how much I love this thread? Okay, some of my favorite quotes so far (thanks, mamas - you made my day! ):

post #31 of 171
are you ready....

I've had a glass of wine or 1/2 a glass of beer at least once a week (never drank at all with ds1).
I used to be veggie but now i eat lamb chops and ham at least once a week.
i have a cup of real coffee every morning
we don't have a tv - but it hasn't stopped me putting ds1 infront of the computer with a dvd on once or twice a day - for my sanity.
I have lost all patience with ds1 - i am not a kind loving mother anymore - my temper is short
i've not taken any photos of my pregnant bump this time - ds2 will think he was adopted.
i live in the same pair of trousers all week
I'd like to have sex - i just can't be bothered
i only eat runny eggs
i've had a mcdonalds milkshake
my dh is also having pregnancy symptoms - but you know what - i don't care - i'm the bloody pregnant one - feel sorry for me.
All i want to do is sleep.
post #32 of 171
SO much fun! time to confess....

I had a sip of wine at dinner last night, and constantly crave more!

I drink a coke a day, only when pregnant, I hate coke normally!

I have not taken my prenatals (except maybe 10 times).

My heartburn is so bad that I maxed out on tums like 8 times in the last two weeks, that is until I got on a daily dose of pepcid AC, along with papaya of course!

DS watches more sesame street dvr now that I am preggo!

I am an ice cream girl! It is summer you know!

I lift way to many things, especially ds...and anything else people can't see me lift!

That is all I can think of right now!

This is so refreshing to read. Many times here at MDC I've felt "inferior" in my crunchiness because I'm fairly low on the crunchy scale (but too high for mainstream places) so to read that everyone is like me is quite a relief!

Loved this. I have 5 and I do wear them on the same days every week. Helps me keep track. I don't care either!!!

I used to feel this way too and it bit me in the ass. I ended up pumping exclusively for ds for 18 months and he always had breastmilk in his bottles but I used to get quite a bit of stares and comments. Try pretending it is breastmilk in the bottles and maybe it will be easier to walk on by without thinking about it!
post #34 of 171
Soapdiva-totally get it, however just to paint a picture of *how* pissy I am....
I had no supply with either kid. Ds had some breastmilk after I relactated with help at four months, but mostly got donated breastmilk and homemade formula. I used an SNS for a long time but eventually (7 months?) went to a bottle.

With dd my milk didn't come in again either- I was ready and got donated milk and domeperidone and pumped like crazy taking every galactagogue out there. AFter about five months she was finally nursing and I had a decent supply. Even after all that I STILL feel superior when I see someone with a bottle. Really, it doesn't get much bitchier because clearly I KNOW how hard it can be. Man, I'm a mess!
post #35 of 171
I'm a soda junkie, I have to have my Coke in the morning or the day is just off to a baaaaaaad start. I'm trying to limit my self to 1-2 glasses in the morning.

The rest of the day I drink unsweetened tea. Yes, it's caffeinated, but the uncaffeinated bag (Culinary Teas peach tea!) was about $30.

Sure, I've had some glasses of red wine. Will have another one whenever DH picks up another bottle of wine.

Monday night we had take-n-bake pizza from Papa Murphy's for dinner.

The above isn't bad, but while I was there picking up the pizza I bought a container of chocolate chip cookie dough that never saw the inside of the oven.

My house is an absolute pit and it is driving me crazy. I just want to throw most of the stuff away.

I was too lazy to get up when I heard the recycling truck come through the neighborhood this morning (WTF, why is it coming before 8 am?) so I just chucked the rest of the recyclables in the trash can because the trash truck won't come until after noon. I would rather let DS nurse for an hour and a half straight so I could relax for a little while longer.

Yeah!!! I'm all over that stuff!

Have been reminded of a few more...
- I have regular coffee every morning and have every day since I was 16...nothing will come between me and my coffee! I don't even care if when I'm nursing my kids get all hepped up on caffeine. That's life. At least it's not crack. Quick, call CPS now!
- I really do want girls despite the "I'll be happy with either" line. I'm sorta cheap and want to be able to reuse Hannah's adorable clothes and I actually do believe girls are easier...I'm sure I'm in for a shock!

Hee hee! At least someone does. Now as long as we keep our online distance you *may* continue to feel that way. Maybe I should just put my dh online...would that salvage his opinion of me?
post #39 of 171
I think you ALL rock! Ok, here's mine:

I aspire to take my toddler on a walk every day, but haven't acutally been out walking in, uh, a really long time. When I was pregnant with dd, I walked a mile every day just about.

I've been eating a lot of watermelon and cinnamon toast crunch. A LOT.

I, too, have been forgetting those prenatals.

I'm really freaking out about having two babes. Most of the time I know it will be okay, but sometimes I get scared about how I'm going to do it.

What's up with the Cinnamon toast Crunch? I don't really even like it all that much normally. But this pregnancy I eat a bowl for "dessert" just about every night. Can't get enough!

Oh, and your DD has a fabulous birthday, BTW. She happens to share it with someone completely not famous, but still cool anyway - ME!
