Pie, you are lucky! I wish Jimmy would drop; I'm starting to get out of breath easily. There are some song at church that I can't sing because I don't have the lung capacity and I have to take breaths where you aren't meant to. I mean, I can sing them, it's just hard.
I remember reading something about second babies dropping either sooner or later than your first, but I can't remember which it was! LOL
HAKing, I think Daniel is handling Ozzy's outbursts pretty well. I try not to judge him if it seems like he's loosing his patience because I know he deals with it all day. As far as I can tell, he's been consistent in his "discipline" (i.e. saying no, taking something away if needed, etc.), so that's good. He's a great dad.
Blessed, yay for full on TTC! I hope your lp is long enough and you get that bfp soon!
Rojo, sorry to hear you're dealing with the icky first tri symptoms.
Harley, I don't think my DH would be able to handle staying at home with Alia, especially not if she was throwing tantrums. He loves her, but he just doesn't know how to be patient sometimes. But he's learning.
Pie, I think Liam is starting to drop, too, so I guess it's not that weird. I'm having more hip pain and pressure in my pelvis, and sneezing has started to hurt my lower tummy (although I'm not really sure if that has anything to do with it). I guess when I take another bump shot, I can compare the two and see if it's dropped lower.
Haking, the double digits it a fun thing to look forward to in between V-day and the beginning of third tri. To be honest, I love milestones, because they help me feel like things are going faster! For me, it's third tri tomorrow!
So, do you remember me telling you about how crappy Alia's sleep was the other night? Well, it really hasn't gotten better. She's been up for two hours in the middle of the night crying and whining the past couple nights, and I have no idea why. Also, today she gaged herself and projectile vomited all over the car, the carseat, and herself. And then as I was putting her to bed tonight, she threw up again. I'm starting to wonder if she has some underlying stomach problem, because I just don't think it's normal for her to be throwing up this much.
That is a lot to be throwing up spiffy. Especially at her age. It's probably nothing but maybe take her to be checked out, just for your peace of mind. Being up for two hours every night is a bit weird So she's upset with it, not happy? Maybe teething? What time of the night is it?
Rojo sorry to hear the first tri sickness has got you. I hate first tri with a vengeance.
Harley that's great that your DH is handling things really well with Ozzy. I'm much more patient with Noah than my DH is, not that he's bad, but it gets him down a lot quicker than me. But then we have had a lot of whinging going on lately and it's wearing on me slightly too.
Today I've been feeling pretty down for some reason. Well I think it's a whole bunch of little reasons. I slept terribly and I never do well on such bad sleep. Plus my neighbours moved out today and I'm really going to miss them, they're lovely and have a little boy similar in age to Noah so we used to do lots of things together. Add to that Noah's whinging and the waiting for the house to be sorted... Just a bit fed up and hormonal I guess.
Pie, I know how you feel. I had a pretty bad day the other day, too, with not getting much sleep, and Alia being extremely clingy and whiny. I finally just had a good cry, and then DH took me out to see a movie, which was fun.
As for Alia's night time wake ups, it starts sometime around midnight, and then it's just rough from there on out. I thought teething possibly, but she's never been that bad with teething before. Usually she'll have one night where she'll wake up crying for a bit, and then the next day, I see that she's broken a tooth. But we're going on five days of bad sleep now, and still no tooth, so I think it's something else, but I'm not sure what it is.
Rojo, sorry you're dealing with the sucky 1st trimester symptoms! Those are the worst Hope you don't get it too bad and your kids don't give you too much trouble while you're feeling yucky!
Harley, that is great that Daniel is dealing with Ozzy well. My DH has patience but not as much as I do and so I'd rather deal with it than have him do it.
Spiffy, that is really odd that Alia is making her self vomit! I've never heard of a baby doing that...maybe have her checked out like Pie said just to make sure its not another underlying problem.
Pie and Spiffy, I can really relate on the whole feeling down lately... I swear I am an emotion wreck lately...I think its the whole living at in-laws getting to me and the frustration of Ben not having a nursery and the annoying SIL and their kid! Its too much to take and I'm feeling super annoyed and almost in an instant bad mood when I come home and see them. I expressed to DH about it and he has been more supportive about it and telling his family to back off a bit which has been helping but I think the only real way to fix it won't come until we move! Thank god I love my job or life would be extra hard!
So, I don't know if any of you guys still give your babies a bottle still (with the exception of littlesteph, of course ) but the past week I have been working on weaning Sam off the bottle since he still gets one at night and so far so good. He hasn't had one since last Friday night and we completely changed our bedtime routine now so we read a book and then he goes to bed and he is doing great! I almost feel too lucky! I am just trying to do this sooner than later so that once Ben comes Sam isn't jealous of Ben's bottle when he no longer gets one.
Haking, that's great that you got Sam weaned so easily! Alia still has four bottles a day! Of course, with hw horrible she eats, I think she might starve without it, so we're going to wait it out and see if she starts drinking less and less on her own. Of course, she's also younger than Sam, so we still have time.
As for the in-laws, I'm sorry that's still such a source of stress for you. I'm glad that your DH is being more understanding, though. I pointed out to my DH a few of the comments that his mom has made to me since we've been living here, and he agreed that they've been rude, so at least I know I'm not crazy. My own mom passed away when I was 11 years old, so my DH will never experience the whole MIL, thing.
