Our New Years was lame..put DD to bed at a normal time (the last few weeks have been hell with her being sick, there was no way I was going to change bedtime) she had no idea what was going on anyway lol. We watched Ted that was hyped up to be so funny but we both thought was pretty lame. DH got some BD Time but just cuz I was trying to get baby here lol so he got what he wanted

To catch up from the December Thread . . .
Holly - Vehicle stress is so tough though I agree with Tiffany, you can't worry about how it looks when your needs change. We really need to replace DH's vehicle he drives to work as what we have is getting on it's last legs and DH doesn't feel comfortable taking the kids in it, When we can replace it, it will be for something with better milage and family friendly.
Tiffany - Strange of your Doctors nurse to want to schedule things so much earlier then your OB discussed. I hope you are over this sickness soon! It must be horribly uncomfortable and draining.
Amanda - I;m sorry you're in so much pain. The end of pregnancy can be so challenging like that.
AFM - Things are pretty good. DS still has his days and nights mixed up, but he's had a couple of nights where he'll have them "right" and sleep in 3 hour stretches so I'm hopeful we can get him doing that more often. He has a two week visit today. We had to go back to redraw his blood yesterday because the first sample "wasn't enough". Not sure how that happened but I wasn't too thrilled. I'm curious to see how much he's gained at his appointment this afternoon. DH went back to work today after another 4 day weekend. DD misses him a lot but we're doing pretty well. I feel good postpartum wise though it's really hard not to pick up DD at times. I also feel that my pelvic floor is sort of weak but maybe that's normal. I just don't remember it from DD's pregnancy/postpartum.
Mia - I am so glad for you that you are not dealing with PPD this time around. I do hope I will be less anxious myself this time around, even though it is twins. Sorry DH had to go back to work, but I understand. My doctor's nurse scheduled things so early due to miscommunication. I can see how it would happen. The conversation I had with doc was via cell phone while he was probably out and about and it did not get communicated. However, I know what is supposed to happen and I am being my own advocate. Plus seeing my doc in action on New Years when there were a gazillion babies being born and lots of sick pregnant ladies around made me appreciate him and understand why things may get lost occasionally. It also makes me glad I have some medical knowledge.
Amanda - I know the kind of pain you are talking about. I did a lot of research on this and I haven't done much because nothings really been "proven" to help except delivery. I am lucky because DH can do a lot around here and is basically doing the nesting for us. If I had to take care of DS and try to keep the household going through this it would be worse. I hope you are managing to get some rest. I did not have such severe aches with my first pregnancy, must be a second pregnancy thing. Regardless I hope you feel better. Warm baths and tylenol are allowed you know.
AFM - sitting at home but wish I was at work. I can't get around that easily and I am feeling pretty worthless here plus I am starting to really feel better, but my hacking cough and wheezing sound pretty bad. At least when I am working I make enough to justify my lack of ability/skills in other areas (i.e. cleaning, cooking, wrestling DS). PS - the Roomba is doing a great job cleaning up after my guests left. It is currently vacuuming our living room and sweeping our kitchen. And it is entertaining the cat as well. True multi-tasker.
Ugh the stomach flu has hit our house. DD started with a fever yesterday and she was up the ENTIRE night vomiting. Poor thing. I just hope baby doesn't decide to make an appearance while we're in the middle of the flu! And I'm PRAYING I don't get it.
Amanda - I'm sorry your DD is so sick. I hope she's back to herself soon and that you can avoid catching it.
We didn't do anything big for New Years. The kids were in bed at a decent time so we watched TV until about 10 and went to bed.
Yesterday was DH's 30th so we had a small party for him here. We don't usually host things but it was fun and laid back. Everyone else brought food so we just provided the space, drinks, and the birthday boy. My MIL brought his baby book so that was fun to look at. DS was just a pound under what DH weighed at birth and they look so much alike, I love it!
Amanda, is DD feeling any better? Hopefully she'll get better quickly and you won't get it. Being sick is hard enough, but being so close to delivering makes it even worse.
Mia, sounds like fun. I told DH I want to do something for my birthday this year, as I'll be turning 30. We never really celebrate my birthday, but I always do something fun w/the kids for his. Even if it's just a nice dinner that would work for me
I can't believe we had so many babies over the weekend and maybe Lesli tonight...it's exciting! I was so dizzy and nauseus yesterday that I thought about putting a call into my OB, but didn't. Only 13 days left. So excited!!
Lesli- i agree about Ted i only laughed like twice smh and it was the scenes they showed in the commercial
Amanda - how is your little one feeling ? I hope shes ok !
Mia- ughh Carter had his days and nights mixed up too my poor LO! Hows is your LO adjusting with the new sibling ?
Holly- how are you feeling ? Are your LO excited about the new addition?
Tiffany- how are you feeling ? How are the twins doing ?
Patricia- how are you feeling ? According to your ticker your almost to term!
AFM - im ok just adjusting to becoming a FTM. Im trying to get this breastfeeding well pumping thing down! Ive been taking fenugreek and drinking mothers tea to help bring my milk for pumping ! So far my right boob is cooperation beautifully !! I just need my milk to come in for when i go back to work . I cant believe Carter is a month old tomorrow especially when his due date was yesterday! Wed he has an appointment i cant wait to see how much he weighs !! I love him so much !!!
DD is feeling much better, thank goodness! Now I can go back to my efforts of getting baby out! LOL
Tasha, I can't belive Carter is a month old already! It's crazy how fast time flies once they get here. For me, when I had DD, breastfeeding was definitly the hardest part of being a FTM. While it was a great bonding experience and I knew it was best for her, it was soooo hard, and I would have little meltdowns all the time because of it. I stuck with it, and it got waaaay easier, and I nursed for 8 months, but it was so hard in the beginning. Your doing great momma!
