Another month, another chat thread. Happy October!
Help me please!!!
My hair has been falling out in handfuls. . like I'm shedding everywhere. When I wash it, as soon as I take my hands out of my hair to rinse it, my hand is literally COVERED in strands of hair. It's very long, waaaay past my bra strap and fine texture. Keeping it long is the only thing I can do to make it look decent normally. Plus, I can't afford a haircut right now.
I use a long-hair conditioner but that's not helping. Of course, half the websites I've checked says it's a symptom of GD, which worries me even more about my test on Friday.
Is there anything I can do??
October!? I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that! Jeesh. Rowan will be 9months on the 16th and Kaylee is almost a 3.5!! Where did the time go??
I'm making homemade pumpkin pies and pastry cinni rolls Wednesday or Thursday for my dad's birthday. (: I love this time of year because it means I get to make all my favorite dishes and bake like a mad woman! We also LOVE Halloween so I'm pumped for this year. K is going as Cinderella R will be Spock idk what me and belly will be this year.
Taylor-I didn't have that issue with GD but a friend did they gave her some shampoo to help.
Taylor - I'm sorry about the hair! I've never heard of it being related to GD. I didn't start shedding with DD until postpartum (then it stopped around the 1 year mark) but it started up again in full force with this pregnancy and didn't slow down until about a month ago. It's such a pain! I wish I had a resolution for you.
Ashley - Now I want sweets even more! I love baking I just don't have a lot of practice so I tend to stick to simple stuff. All this baby wants is cookies, brownies, ice cream . . . I also am having a hard time coping with the fact that it's already October, though it's my favorite month.
We just got back from a play date a little while ago. It went pretty well. It was with a mom's group that has a good range of kids (age wise) but sometimes it feels cliquey. It wasn't so bad today but high school type stuff like that is really discouraging to me.
I'm making cinnamon honey butter today! It's supposed to be just like Texas Roadhouse's butter. I'm still waiting on the butter to finish softening up.
Hey all! I haven't checked in for awhile how is everyone? I am having BH contractions like crazy...am I the only one?
Mia-Sorry! Lol I'd send you a pie if I.could (; My cravings are insane and.random. They will NOT go away until satisfied which makes eating anything else difficult
There's a mommy group here in our town, it was like being in HS again so we.never went back. SO frustrating.
Lesli- You're not the only one! I get them daily multiple times a day. It seems like even breathing lately will get them off. Grr!
Lesli, no braxton hicks for me. Of course you're a bit farther than me. Hopefully they're not too bothersome!
Taylor, sorry about the hair loss! I don't have any words of advice other than to put in a call to your midwife and see what she has to say. I usually don't lose hair until postpartum, but then it comes out like crazy for abou 6 months! BTW, your butter sounds delicious!
Mia, sounds like a good playdate! I wish I had mom's group locally, but there isn't anything in my small town.
AFM, I just finished watching Grey's from last week. Good lordy....that was a yank on the emotions! I think I cried through half of it! I was going to watch it last night, but I was sick so I went to bed as soon as I got home. It wasn't the flu, but it was awful! It was like horrible gas pains...worse than what I typcially feel after delivery. Luckily I was able to sleep it off and feel better today.
Hi Lesli!! Glad to see you. :) BH are an all the time thing for me these days. It just reminds me how close were are getting to the end and how much there is left to prep for.
Holly - Good thing it wasn't the flu. DD was sick with a little cold the other week that she caught from a friend, she passed it to my dad while he babysat for me but he had it so much worse. Being sick with something there isn't much you can do for except rest is the worst.
I"m glad it's a rainy day here in that we can lounge around but it's going to be so hard to not go to the grocery store for a couple things. All I want to eat is junk/sweet stuff and I'm about out of all we have in the house for it. DD's favorites are running low too so that's going to be fun. I'm going to try and resist though as we have just had bill after bill lately so we're pretty tight on money. I miss having a good "cushion" in the bank and not having to worry about things like that. Hopefully we'll get back to that after the pregnancy.
Holly, I loved the premiere! It was actually very brilliant on their part. So many people have given up on the show and most likely only watched to see how they were rescued and then stop the series. Now, they've sucked them back in without them even realizing it because you know they're going to watch this week. So I think they'll end the next episode with a hook as well to keep them fully into it.
I think people are being ridiculous about Grey's. It's a primetime SOAP OPERA. Do you hear people constantly complaining about everyone they've killed off on General Hospital or ER? If someone chooses to leave the show, of course it's going to be dramatic. I'm kinda mad they gave Mark an entire episode of memories and death whereas Lexie only got 20 minutes and no memorial. She was on the show maybe a year less than him.
Mia, I'm a very good baker! Cooking, I'm learning. Baking, I can do. Except decorate, I'm not a very good cookie decorator. I was hoping I'd find some Halloween-themed baking stuff, like chocolate chips or things like that but I only found sprinkles and Funfetti mix. So I got Christmas ones.
