:LOL It's very easy for me to get dh to do housework: it honestly turns me on! When I see him with a load of clean, folded laundry ...
. He knows it makes me hot to see a much cleaner room than the one I left, and he also knows that I'm rarely in the mood if things are a mess. If you withhold sex for a while and make it clear that cleaning up will solve the problem, he'll clean. :LOL
bandana: A hydatiform mole is not an actual pregnancy; sometimes when a sperm & egg come together, they don't make a baby. Instead, it'll make a kind of tumor, or a 'mole' which can implant in the uterus and grow. They grow very quickly (more quickly than babies) and sometimes (I think) you can even have positive pregnancy tests with them. They aren't alive, though, and don't resemble a baby in any way. Speaking of which...
I don't have one.
I'm not sick as I was, but I definately have a sour stomach most of the time. And even though I've been starving, I've only gained half a pound!
I find it so difficult to believe, the way I've been cramming food into myself! :LOL I'm very relieved.
seedling: Feel free to complain; I know it makes me feel like more of a regular human being to know that other people can get just as frustrated and miserable in their pregnancy.
Not that I want you to stay miserable! :LOL
elbee: I have asthma too, and mine cleared up almost completely while I was pregnant with Eli (I had maybe 3 attacks the whole pregnancy, which is ridiculously good for me). I have noticed a little bit of wheezing which, if I were not pregnant, I probably wouldn't use my inhaler for. Because I am pregnant, I'm more careful about it: I've read that it's very dangerous for babies in utero to be deprived of oxygen for even a short period of time, so I'd like to keep it in check! If it is a sign that it's a girl this time, that'd be wonderful! I'd be thrilled with another little boy, but I'm kind of hoping to have a little girl next.
My strange sex dreams have begun, but I have a problem with them. Sometimes I'll wake up from one to find... a baby attached to his nursie!!
It's very creepy to me every time that happens. *shudder* I just don't want to associate those feelings (which are fun!) with my son. I have no idea how to solve this problem.
I'm not going to wean him; is that the only way?
And now to my own complaining. Last night my mother, nieces, and a family friend were going out to eat when an SUV came flying past a stop sign at 50 MPH and sideswiped the car. My older niece is physically fine, but was traumatized; in her booster seat, she got a perfect view of my mother's skull.
Her sister has a brushburn from where her seatbelt (which probably wasn't threaded correctly through the booster seat) wrapped around her chin; it bothers her a little, but otherwise she was fine.
Our friend hit the windshield and his head looks nasty, but is fine; his glasses were damaged a bit but aren't unwearable. My mother lost a lot of blood when she hit something (she doesn't know what) and her scalp split open.
She's okay, but still in the hospital; she looks kinda scary (Eli got very upset when he saw her!
), but she's coherent. My older niece insisted on going to school today, even though her mother told her she didn't have to. She called home once during the day to make sure everything was all right, and has not eaten since yesterday afternoon
. (She's one of those people who won't eat when she's upset, which isn't great because she's really too skinny to begin with.
The police found the vehicle, which had been reported stolen (I think before the accident; I'm not sure) and was abandoned. They don't have any suspects yet.
It's all very depressing to me, and the fact that I've been dealing with pregnancy depression all week doesn't help. Please keep my mom & niece in your prayers; I'm sure they'll be fine, but a little extra can't hurt! How do you deal with situational depression problems during pregnancy? This is a first for me. I find that everything gets me thinking about the new baby, giving me more reasons to worry, making me paranoid. I was terrified to blink while I was driving this morning, and that's not a great driving habit.
