July 06 mamas: get yer March on! - Page 2

post #21 of 755
We're not crawling yet, but it is mere moments away, I fear. I try to tell him crawling is not yet authorized, but he just laughs at me. I need him to wait to crawl until his sisters stop leaving teeny tiny choking hazards all over the house... so a few more years, probably?

Last night we gave DS some broccoli and he LOVED it. What a mess, though.

Today I am trapped in the house while the basement waterproofing folks tromp around making lots and lots of noise. I'm not planning to do muich of anything. It's just SO LOUD...

I had my wisdom teeth pulled the other day. Right after we moved.
I'm still feeling pretty crummy. I was feeling better yesterday but then it got really bad in the evening. I'm wondering if it's because I did too much in the evening and my body had to halt the healing process. My : dh got dish for our new house, which I'm really not opposed to. I think there's a better use for the money, but whatever. But he spent all night from like 5 to 1030 trying to get this thing working. It's still not working. Mattie was beserk wanting his attention and I just wanted some help. At least he said he could scrounge up his own dinner, so I didn't have to make a meal. I got Wednesday night off. He took care of Mattie and my mom took Emma with her. I guess I'm only entitled to one night off after having teeth pulled. Thank good ness for my mom though.

I'm so sorry about the crawlling thing. It really does change life as we know it. It's not just my bigger dd that leaves stuff laying around, it's dh too. Mattie has discovered The Joy of The Chase. She crawls away very quickly, laughing all the way. She giggles very hard when you catch her. Emma enjoys the chase too. But at this moment I think they are waiting for me.

Oh, when do they stop thinking the baby is a seat/footstool/headrest/armrest/table,etc?

A breakthrough on the parenting front. My mom has said for the first time ever that I'm doing something RIGHT. Yes, folks, she actually used those words. It's always been you should try this or I always did this or if you did this, it will make your life easier. Your sister had her baby on such a nice schedule, your sister's baby just lays right down in his bed and goes to sleep, blah, blah, blah. Well, her kid is a mean bully. The other day my mom took Emma to the nursing home to see my gramma. She said Emma was so nice to my gramma and kept saying I love you so much, grandnana. and patting her leg and took her for a walk and was really hrlpful to my gramma. My mom said she was really proud of Emma. I don't do things so my mom will be proud(obviously) but it was nice that she recognized out loud that maybe her and my sister's way isn't the only right way and I'm not ruining my children. Which I do think on occasion.
Okay, I just had to pull a bunch of styrofoam out of Mattie's mouth. How did she find all those tiny pieces? I guess I need to vacuum. Yay me! Anybody else have a 2-year-old who's scared by the vacuum?

Oh and welcome to the club, mamatomahmoud.

I'm getting all four wisdom teeth pulled soon. They're all growing in straight, strong, and in the right place, so I figured I was ok, but then two different dentists have told me that even though they're not crowding my other teeth, my mouth isn't quite big enough, so there'll always be a flap of skin over the edge of two of them that will be prone to decay and infection, and if I only take out those two, the other two will keep growing until they hit my bottom gums. blech.

did you know she's got a website (www.sandraboynton.com) with clips from most of the songs on her cd's? That's where I first heard Snuggle Puppy, and I'm pretty sure it's my DS's favorite song ever.

mobility...still very little here. DS scootches a little on his butt, but it's mostly from bouncing up and down like a PP said. Oh, and he pulls up on things with some regularity, which is fun as long as he's pulling up on something sturdier than, say, the dog's head...

on a completely different front, I'm amused that there are two different "sick" smilies in the box to the right now. Perfect for the current season, I guess.

man, aren't I a chatty cathy this week...

My 8 month old is afraid of the vaccum. I have the lowest possible pile of carpet available ANYWHERE, and all it takes is someone to THINK about there being something on it and it's dirty. Crawling isn't going to be fun, because there is always stuff all over the carpet and with it being low pile every speck of dirt shows. And she hates the vaccum. Bleh. It's shameful, shameful how dirty our carpet is.

I get my period back at 8 weeks pp regardless of exclusive or "ecological" breastfeeding. Some are more fertile than others I am actually pleasantly surprised at how tame aunt flo is now that I'm breastfeeding. I don't get the cramps the way I used to....now they've been replaced by MAJOR PMS, headaches, bad mood, backache, hormonal swings are getting to be too much. I need to see a doctor about it because its honestly becoming unliveable. But I'm glad March is finally here. 18 days until spring!
post #26 of 755
anyone on birth control here? What method did you choose? I in NO WAY want to become pregnant and again, and now that normal 'marital relationships' have resumed, I am finding myself for the first time ever not wanting to be pregnant. Thoughts?

I highly recommend being put to sleep.

I'll have to check out that website. I didn't even know she had cds. Thanks for the info. So which of her books is your fave?

Emma has always hated the vacuum. My dh got me one of those Bissell Perfect Sweep sweepers. You just run it over the carpet and it picks up loose stuff. It works great. But occasionally you still have to run the vacuum. I'm not sure mine has made it to the new house yet, so I will be vacuuming. I just have to figure out what to do with my toddler. Maybe she'll play in her room. My baby doesn't bat an eye at the thing. I think it's part of being a first born.

DS is afraid of the vacuum and the mixer! If he isn't being held, he screams. More of an excuse to put off vaxcuuming one more day.

I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled at once ... OUCH. Not fun at all. I couldn't eat solids for over a week.

DS tried sweet potato for the first time yesterday ... they made him gag. So far he's only liked apple. That's ok, he's growing just fine without solids.

I have to check out that Boynton website. Her books are so much fun to read.

Adia was terrified of the vacuum.. it puts Francesca to sleep half the time. (But I have one of the little robotic ones, so I can just nurse her while it does its work. )

AF showed up at the beginning of Janurary, but I haven't seen her since. And I've had PMS for the last four weeks. It's realllly getting old and I wish she'd show up. I have my poke 'n prod on Tuesday, so I'm sure she'll come back Monday night. : I'm thinking about getting the Mirena if all is well with my vagina.

Sandrine - I'll keep that in mind! We have plywood underneath, so we hveto put down some kind of padding. I'll ask DH's friend this afternoon when he drops off the boxes of wood what we'll do exactly.

ETA - Laura - I loathe carpet, but DH hates the "cold floor" aspect. He doesn't do the cleaning, so he lost.

Oh, and look.. I'm posting on the 2nd page rather than the 22nd this month. (I actually wondered if a new thread had been started when I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep last night.)

I was able to keep up with the choking hazards when dd1 was crawling. I can't seem to stay on top of the volume of hazards two dc create.

No birth control here yet, but then there's not much DTD going on either. :
I am very interested in NFP and a diaphragm. I can't convince dh to do a vasectomy. I wonder if he knew he'd DTD more often if he had a V if he would do it. Hmmm.....
post #31 of 755
Ok, I am finally joining you all! I am not too new to MDC but I haven't joined the July club yet because everytime I think of it its already halfway through the month and I am too lazy to catch up on the thread .Anyway, Hello!

I haven't gotten AF back yet and I honestly can't remember when I got it back with my first one. I am pretty sure it was after I weaned- at like 13 mos. I plan on CLW this one so hopefully she stays away till I am done! In the mean time, I am trying FAM for birth control. Its kind of hard to do though! Everyday its different and in no pattern. I heard it can be kind of a pain though while nursing- especially if AF isn't back.

Glad to finally join you!!

I forgot about the birth control question. DH and I do NFP/FAM. It worked for us for nearly 3 years prior to TTC DS and it's worked in the PP time too. I didn't take any formal class, but I did read "The Art of Natural Family Planning" and "Taking Charge of Your Fertility." Even if NFP/FAM isn't a form of BC you plan on using, the books are well worth the read, simply to find out how the woman's body works.
post #33 of 755
Laura, I agree those are great books.

I had an IUD put in (I think I mentioned that when it happened) because there is NO WAY I want any more "surprises"...both my lovelies were surprises and I think I would just perish if I had another at this moment with Viet!
post #34 of 755
All my kids are afraid of the vacuum. We usually vacuum at the last possible moment where i just can't stand it no more. One of us take the girls out while the other stays home and vaccum the whole place. We have carpet almost everywhere. i can't wait to change that and put in floating floors or sticky tiles.

As for bc, I have a iud. I was really afraid of getting pg right after dd3 and dh is taking his sweet time to get the "V". Now he has 4yrs to get the "v" before it's not safe no more.
post #35 of 755
No period here either. W/lulu I got it when she was 9 months old (when she night weaned). gingi's been night weaned since she was 2 months old, but still no period. I'm glad because my post partum periods were so painful!! And as for birth control, I have no clue. We did natural method (temp taking, cervical mucus) and it worked well. But now the stakes are higher (we are not ready, probably ever, to have more kids!).

But I have found that sex is still very painful/impossible. i feel like i am losing my virginity. Does anyone else have this? What gives? I had a c-section!! We use lubrication, but it's like there's an impenatrable wall that my DH can't move threw... can the hymen grow back???:

Gingi has not even gotten close to crawling. She still topples with a tremendous THUD when she's seated ... sometimes even when propped! I think she's more of a sedate scholar type then an athelete. She loves just staring down at her little cupped hands and pondering them.... So cute! And she likes to be read and sung to.... I swear she sings along.

No vacuum fear here. My ds likes to run and go crazy when it's on. It think it's his automatic response to the noise.

Laura, I read "Taking Charge...." and it was a fantastic book. It was much more education on how my body works than I ever got in health classes, that's for sure. I didn't chart my temps, but I checked cervical mucous and that's how we conceived dd1. I didn't keep track of anything and that's how we got dd2. :

I definitely learned so much more from that book than any health class could have begun to cover. I think it should be required reading for all women! And I tracked my temp, cervical mucous, and took all sorts of supplements when TTC DS and it still took 4 cycles! Maybe next time I'll have your luck.

Hmmmm....I would have your health practitioner check it out. Could be things have moved around down there. A small prolapse (cystocele or similar) is actually quite common. Oh, but wait, you just said you had a cesarean birth...hmmm....then I am not sure! But I do know that in like some percent of women the painful sex and zero libido is a sign of some kind of hormone something...or nature's BC...
post #39 of 755
Just had to share my frustration of the day:

Chunky baby + cloth diapers = really tight pants

Does anyone know of a store that sells "husky" baby pants? Or "pretty plus" for the girl kiddos? Seriously, I can't find anything but overalls and one piece outfits that fit (and even the overalls are like spandex on him!).
post #40 of 755
OH, Laura, how frustrating! Check the cloth diapering forum here for suggestions. I remember having this trouble more with dd1 who was humongous. dd2 is like 17 lbs so no real troubles yet--in pants, just wearing a size bigger...
