No need to feel you shouldn't post.
Good for you for not feeling as bad, fatigue surely is hard too though. Especially when you already have kids. I'm trying to get mine to take a nap now, no go. So we're "playing quietly" which includes me on the computer and them destroying their room
But at least they are "quietly" peeling the paint off the ceiling
J/k but I know the fatigue too and it's nothing light.
I'm feeling a bit better today. No more spotting, only one instance of cramping. I was feeling VERY thirsty but as I'd been up and down all morning making food, getting drinks, etc. I was crazy tired (our a/c is out so that doesn't help) and didn't want to get up *just* to get myself something to drink. Forgot about baby for a minute I suppose. After feeling like I was dying from the combined thirst/heat I started thinking of peeling myself up. I didn't want to because every time I stood the boys stopped drawing/playing/whatever and wanted me to toss them in the air or chase them around the room or something else tiring. So, I started cramping a bit and hopped my happy butt up and got some ice water. The cramping went down after awhile and now I'm realizing that I don't drink nearly enough water so I'm changing that. Forcing myself to get at least 10 glasses a day, I sweat nearly that!
Its shameful but I had a coke last night. I've cut caffeine out (except a smidge now and then in the form of chocolate. YUM.) but yesterday I read in TAO about pouring peanuts into Coke. I love Coke, have been craving it. With my others I never gave in to caffeine though I lusted after it so badly. I was in a HORRIBLE mood yesterday (no excuse I know) and so I got dh to pick some up for me. He remembered that I shouldn't have caffeine when he got home though and took half my Coke. He would've taken more if I hadn't poured the nuts in when he left the room
He's trying to lose weight (and succeeding
the lucky jerk!) so didn't buy himself one so he did the "right" lmao thing and he took mine. But it was so delicious! Now I'm gagging at the thought but at the time, I loved it. I ended up not even finishing what I had left after dh stole from me though b/c it started to make me sick (like everything). My only time I'll slip though So, who is finding out and who isn't? If you are/aren't, did you find out with your previous kids? Why/why not? And why are/aren't you finding out this time?
I haven't decided. This will likely be our last and we haven't found out ever before. I'm kind of thinking I'd like to but I'm not sure. If we end up having to pay out of pocket, no. But if I can get insurance, then maybe. We didn't find out with the others because we figured we'd know their whole lives what sex they were
This time around, I'm making cloth diapers from the start (started my boys when they were a toddler and an older baby) and I'd like to know if I'm making ones with dresses to match or not
Of course, I'll likely keep a girl in a onesie/sleeper just as much as a boy (I LOVE sleepers) but it would be cute to make a few matching dresses/diapers.
Not to say I'd prefer a girl, I'm actually very evenly split, but I know I won't have the energy to work/take care of a newborn/do the normal kid care/house care AND make cute little matching outfits.
