Is this a subtle way of saying I should do housework?

OMG hubby just gave Ronin a peanut, seriously. I'm not worried about the allergy aspect more the choking hazard

Well I have no concerns in getting hubby on board for ttc, he wanted to know how much we would need to have another baby and is certain it will be a girl. He's also starting to plan for next year when he is fully trained and has a couple of options he is thinking about, though both will mean him being away for periods of time.

Good morning ladies! I'm strapped to the couch with a lightly napping sicky attached to my boob. Can't move. I wish DH would get out of bed and make me coffee!

Wendy, if your DH is on board to TTC does that mean you've broken your no booty streak?!

DH gave Aiden a walnut half once and wondered why I panicked. "But he eats peanut butter!" Ummmm yeah, he can't chew nuts with only 6 teeth all in front. Blum 3

woo hoo about talking about TTC. Is this means there's an end to the dry streak there?! WinkBiggrin

I'm back on the couch afraid to move. I've been doing some yardwork while Teagan plays with rocks. We need to move 7 pallets of pavers from the side yard to the back because someone cut open the plastic like they were looking to steal them. Bastards. Since DH's back is awful its my job to move them. Yay. I've done 3/4 of one pallet so far. Now T is asleep. Perhaps I can lay her down on a blanket on the back porch. I'd wear her but then I wouldn't be able to lift the pavers!

No end to the dry streak, I am too tired to even think about that lately. I am terrified of how first tri exhaustion is going to hit. Really we can't TTC until September as that means one less fight for me with the hospital to get my vbac, not ideal in my mind on age gaps but really the less arguements with them to get the birth I want the better. Hopefully we catch it on the first try because I really want a baby before June 30 which is the school cut off, or else it's an extra year of day care we have to pay. Oh and it would be nice to have ababy share my birth month seeing as Ronin shares his Daddy's birth month.

i want a summer baby next! June, July, or August works for me. Hopefully it won't take long here either. It took 3 months for Lucas, but I think we were just missing prime days there from the looks of the charts

Ronin was a first time baby, but circum stances were different then with hubby working a normal job and not home so late, this time I think it will be more difficult. We may start TTC in August though just to give us an extra shot.

So I hate to be the debbie downer here but I am so miserable. My jaw pain has increased dramatically and all I want to do is cry. The only other time I've felt pain this bad was when I had an absessed tooth back in 2001. I couldn't even sleep last night. I guess I'm going to have to make an emergency appointment with my dentist tomorrow to see if anything can be done about it, but I bet I'm just going to have to live with it. And to compound it, Lyla has done almost nothing but cry uncontrollably all day today. She was up at 2am crying and stayed up for over an hour and she woke up crying this morning and hasn't stopped.

:grouphug: So sorry to hear that you're still so miserable Anna.

Aiden is most definitely teething now. He's fussy unless very distracted. Took him to a park for 2 hours today, and boy did that rescue the day (and wear him out! lol). While home all he wants to do is nurse or chew on one of our fingers or cry. He's not interested in his old teething rings and teething toys. Sad

I've been experiencing some really awful jaw pain too, Anna. Its definitely TMJ. It started a few months back when my jaw would occasionally make clicking noises when I ate. Now its really painful if I open my mouth too wide or eat something too hard/chewy. I really need to make an appt about it. Not sure what they can do Sad

Sorry about your pain Anna. Sad I was thinking maybe from grinding too? DH had that once, went the dr's thinking the worse and it was just from grinding. I hope it's nothing big or that it can be taken care of quickly.

So as you may or may not know, im not sure if i said it or not, i've been off work for about a month now due to my back (herniated disc). Well Im to start back on Tuesday for only 4 hour shifts, but I'm sooooo nervous. At least once a day I seem to do something that aggravates my back and I have to take pain meds and stretch/rest. I cant really do that while I'm working. But I'm starting to think that work may actually be easier on my back than hefting around my 40+ lb son all day. He ALWAYS wants me to pick him up. Work may actually be a break!!! I wouldnt mind a little prayer for my back ladies...I NEED to work....plus I dont want back pain for the rest of my life. SIGH!

Dont chiropractors help with TMJ? Just a thought.

My personal belief is that chiropractors are quacks. Glorified masseuses/physical therapists. I'll probably get referred to the campus PTs.

Mona, working might just be easier on your back. DH has a herniated disc and he has an easier time doing tons of things other than lifting Teagan and she's only 24 lbs.

Physio would probably be really good too for TMJ. When I first hurt my back this past summer I went to my chiro, and as much as it may have felt good at the time, I really dont think he did much. Physio has done wonders though. I used to get migraines as a teen and often "adjusted" my neck myself. I started seeing a chiro who worked on my neck and I hardly ever get migraines anymore. I dunno. Could be a coincidence though.

my bff is a chiropractor. She swears it cures a lot of things. I don't think she is a quack Biggrin I would go, I am just scared lol! I have seen her adjust her husband and she looks badass doing it. Her husband is a big guy though so I am sure that is part of it.

Ah dont be afraid Janice!! It's not that bad. They adjust what they do for each person. I brought Simon when he was a monthish old (an attempt to cure reflux! LOL! It didnt) and he liked it. Didnt cry or anything. He'd actually toot everytime he went. LOL! Or spit up on me. But the chiro used my more gentle touch than with me and Simon never acted like he was in pain or uncomfortable. And I have coverage, so why the hell not!

I didn't realize you have been off work for that long! Wow. I really think that being at work will be better than lifting your son. The problem with kids is that we pick them up in awkward ways. And holding them? Yeah, the vast majority of people hold a baby where it puts strain on their back and hips. I hurt if I just hold Aiden but I don't by babywearing, which is why I BW more than actually hold Aiden.

My best friend loves chiropractors. She even took her newborn for an adjustment at a week old. She's trying to convince me, but hasn't happened yet. lol.

So Aiden has a fever. DH remarked that he felt warm at the park today, but we figured it was because I had too much clothing on him considering I wore him in a carrier for the 2 mile walk to the falls (he had babylegs, pants, long sleeve onesie, and a fleece jacket and it was about 60? out with 20mph winds). He was just trying to fall asleep on and I took his temp - 101. Not high enough to worry right now, but still has me scratching my head. I don't really believe in the whole fever while teething thing either. Blum 3

Mona, i have heard it is great for some babies. Pretty sure Christa takes her kids to one as well? I would have no problem taking Lucas to my bff and if I really needed to I would see her, I am just scared to routinely go. I know it doesn't hurt either and I have heard it feels good it just looks scary!

has he been running around Jackie? Lucas gets hot pretty easily, a lot of times he wakes up from his nap really warm.

Lucas has only had a fever once and he wasn't teething. Not sure if I believe that either but I know he had other issues when he was teething.

He's been pretty cranky all night. He was really cranky earlier today too and we figured it was due to teething.

I was diagnosed with TMJ about 2 years ago. It flared up when I was pg with Lyla, but not this bad. This pain starts in the joint and covers the whole side of my face. It is throbbing and excruciating. It's the worst pain I've experienced in 10 years (worse than a migraine). I'm going to call my dentist tomorrow, but since I'm pg, I don't think there is much they'll be able to do for me. I want something for the pain though, this is horrible. I can barely open my mouth at all. The pain is non-stop, constant.

I kinda feel this way about them too. I went and saw one for my back years ago (my dad swears by chiropractors, loves them!), but everything he did just made it worse. After several hundreds of dollars and 2 weeks, my back was not better at all. I've refused to see chiropractors since.

Mona, I'm sorry about your back. I imagine that hefting Simon around isn't good for it at all. My kid weighs 21 pounds and I get back aches picking her up constantly. Maybe work is going to be good for it since you'll get a break, but I'd worry about something happening at work too. I hope it goes well. KUP.

Jackie, I'm sorry Aiden has a fever. Between that and teething I imagine it's not entirely pleasant with him. I know Lyla is teething right now and she has been a holy terror, drama queen today. . . without a fever!! And because I'm in so much pain, it's hard for me to deal with her today. DH cooked dinner though, so that was nice.

Simon has had a few fevers. It always seems to be followed by some sort of cold. He'll have a fever with virtually no other symptoms and in a day or 2 he has a cold. Keep an eye out for that. The first time he had a fever with no other syptoms i called my drs nurse line and they said that if the fever continues past 24 hours and there are no other symptoms to see the dr. Sounds like weird advice but i guess they want to know the reason for a fever right. Simon is actually the fever king it seems now. He develops fevers (mild ones mind you) for the tiniest little cough/cold.

Hmmm....that's a thought Mona. I was sick, DS was only under the weather for maybe 2 days (I was under for a week and a half), DH is now sick (though not nearly as bad as I was).....so maybe DS is getting something that's we've been having? We haven't had fevers (and I have a HORRIBLE immune system), but I guess it could cause one in him.

I'm not going to worry with the fever unless it sticks around for a bit or gets to 103 or higher. Fevers are good to a point. Natural body defenses. I did give tylenol to DS before bed since it hit 101. If it was a bit lower I wouldn't have.

I thought Chiropractors were quacks until I had severe back pain after my botched epi with DD1. I am a major believer now!

I take my kids sometimes, too. It's very gentle.

When DD1 had a prolonged fever with no other symptoms, they wanted to test for UTI

They offered that when Aiden had his high fever, but I agreed with the ped that it wasn't really necessary. And it wasn't; he had roseola. lol. It's NOT easy to do that with little kids!
