Well, I woke up this morning and tried to eat some cereal, realized the soy milk had gone bad a week before it was supposed to and ate an ice cream sandwich instead. Then, I laid back down and got on mdc (ah the wonders of off days and kids who play independently in the mornings!) and realized I wasn't nauseous. I was feeling sad and sorry for myself thinking m/c when I realized that I feel sick in the mornings because I don't eat until I get to work most of the time (if even then). So, that's the key, breakfast. However, I am still a little worried so I've decided to not eat until I feel nauseous again.
Silly but my m/c happened at 9 weeks last time and my symptoms went away a week before so...
On another note, the milk that went bad was organic soy milk. I don't get organic all the time, is this normal for it to go bad so early? We hadn't used it in about a week or so, it was just about a fourth of it left, and when I shook it to pour on the cereal it was like the carton was full of yogurt. I didn't bother to pour it out as I took a sniff and it was gross. It wasn't supposed to go bad until the 17th.
Yum, now I really want a cucumber with salt!
I agree, there is so much that mamas have to do that just doesn't get recognized. No one thinks about the fact that I can't pee alone, my body is subject to gropes anytime someone is curious about something (and I don't even breastfeed anymore!), and five MILLION times a day I have little voices screeching at me "Mama, Mama, MAAAAAAAMAAAAAA!" I know that before I had kids I never even thought about all the things that mamas go through, like the fact that I now have this automatic reflex to catch throw up, no matter who is doing it.
Camping, that sounds cool. Though peeing in the rain is certainly not!
I kinda want to find out the sex this time. We didn't with our first two and I had HORRIBLE ppd. I'm hoping to avoid that this time around and was thinking that maybe if I know the sex beforehand I can start working on a relationship with the baby... I don't know. I'm also just kinda curious.
This will likely be our last and I'd just like to know. Though, my mw has predicted the sex with heartbeat rates with both my boys and been right both times. So maybe I could get an idea from that?
Dh is more against finding out the sex than I am (usually, I don't know how he feels about it with this pregnancy as he's just barely stopped referring to my pregnancy with air quotes.
the man was in crazy denial) so I'd have to convince him.
How positive can you be about u/s sex results? I would be so disappointed if I prepared for one sex and got another. I've only had one u/s (a dating u/s with my oldest b/c I was measuring small, he turned out to just be a small baby) so I don't know. If I go that route, should I ask multiple people to say what they think? Maybe ask them for a pic of the parts so I can show it to people?
That sounds silly but if I find out the sex I'd want to be 100% sure, I'd be afraid that it would make my ppd worse if I got the opposite sex from what I'd prepared for.
