I thought I did. I’ve thought about it several different times over the past year. But I don’t want to leave this piece of internet. It’s mine. It basically got me through my first pregnancy with some form of comic relief, socialization, and gripe release.
I saw all of your wonderful comments about how you all would come with me and it made me so happy.
So for now, I will stay where I’m at, gripe freely, and not feel bad about my own dang feelings! They’re MINE too! I can’t expect every person (Because it’s been several people) who has directly or indirectly prompted me to stop this whole thing to know what it actually means to me right now. I won’t be bullied out of it. I need this. I need my little cozy spot.
THE BLOG CONTINUES! SO HERE:
My last weekend and most of this week sucked.
Saturday was the dreaded time change. Ultimately it didn’t matter that I had planned this transition because Harper started to hardcore teeth during the day. Let me assure you, it did not end that night. She acted like her whole world was falling apart no matter what I would do! She was soaking wet with fever. She was sad. I was sad. MY back hurt. BAD. But it didn’t matter because she’s more important than my back. I finally got her to bed at 8….she screamed until 9. I’m not really for letting my kid scream, but nothing would help. I hold her, she screams and kicks to get free, she had already eaten, she’d been changed, she had baby oragel, she had a dose of tylenol for her fever, she was just over the whole tooth thing.
9 rolls around and I’m all like “holy Jesus thank you Lord ***holy dance***, now I’m going to bed!!!!
10 rolls around. She’s screaming again. I get her back to sleep with milk and oragel.
11 rolls around. Guess what? Yea you got it.
12 rolls around…….omygosh…..REALLY!?
1am SMACKS ME IN THE FACE. I fill her face with yummy milk and her next timed dose of tylenol for fever.
Luckily I don’t hear her again until 6ish….John can get that one. I’m staying right the heck where I’m at with my bum back and squished bladder.
Sunday was a bad morning in my own home. Nobody was happy. Sunday I get to go to work. Which is good. I needed that. I really did.
Monday and Tuesday nights were met with nightmares, back pain, AND THIS FREAKING HEADACHE THAT STILL LINGERS TODAY.
I suspect that it was from crying the weekend, creating pressure behind my eyes, but could it be something else?
Iron pills – Check
Caffeine – Check
Lots of water – Check
Food – Triple Check
BP fine? – Check
I hear pets lower stress and blood pressure, and produce better health overall. So I called in a professional.
