Heather~Thanks for the pictures. We fortunatley have been doing the strappy thing right. I was confused for a moment there. I'm more of a visual learner.
Last night I had a blow out. I was sooo tired after staying up all night with Desi because she was sick. My husband stayed home for work to work at home that day to help. But he ended up working and not helping. And when he got with his work early then went to see the house progress. We're building a house. Anyways I laid down with her at 7:30 hoping she would go to sleep. She wouldn't sleep. At 8:30 I got up thinking that she was asleep to eat something. Well she was crying and I didn't want to take her. I told DH to get his sling. It was out in the car and he made a comment that it was good that he stayed at home or else I would be more tired. What was that supposed to mean. He didn't help out at all. Okay he may have held her while I poured my Mother's Milk Tea in the cup or went for a bathroom break but I didn't get a break. And then he goes out to the house which he really doesn't have to do for a couple of hours while I'm stuck here with a fussy baby. I felt bad for not wanting to hold her but I was so tired and just needed some me time. Not to mention he just had to watch TV while holding her which I hate. He isn't giving her his full attention. He wouldn't even talk to her while holding her. He would just stare at the TV holding her.
I myself am in worried mode today, I was at the gynecologist this morning regarding a red, flaky patch on my nipple that won't go away... she took a scraping of it this morning and is sending it to pathology, and if that's inconclusive, she'll have to take a biopsy.
I really, REALLY don't like the word biopsy.
On the positive side, T fell asleep in the car seat on the way home and is napping, so I'm going to go eat my breakfast (at 11:30!).
Send me positive thoughts, eh? so that I don't just dwell on the possibilities and convince myself that I have breast cancer and am going to die before Tristan turns 2.
Cynthia, I know just what you mean. And Kate's first illness is killing me. I just need some down time. She seems to be doing better today, so I really hope the worst is nehind us. Hope Desi gets better soon and you get some rest! Hugs.
Just wanted to post the link to the new page.
Mama to ds 11, ds 7, dd 5, dd 2, and dd born on 6/17/12!
