Basically it's Monday

The night was rough (Fynn was awake most of the night), the morning began at 5:20am (Shannon was bored so she woke her sisters), and I'm still in agony.

Derry has an appointment at 4pm to check on her foot. I'm slightly worried with all the messing about with it before it was finally treated.

I went to the gynocologist this morning again because of the pain with my boobs and my period pains that aren't getting better. We talked about a Hysterectomy. He's happy for me to have one, there is no real need for me to keep my womb at all especially as I dont want anymore children. This is no way for anyone to live if they dont have to. The issue is only how to do it, obviously because I'm nursing Fynn it cant be done right now but we can look into which method should be used. There are three ways to do it. One is the traditional method-cut in the belly. Two would be keyhole surgery and third is vaginally. He thinks we need to look at the scarring I have to determine which method to go ahead with. So he has referred me to a specialist.

I have a prescription for a cream to heal my boobs, but I'm supposed to not BF Fynn for at least 3-4 days. I tried pumping again and made sure the milk was really nice and warm this time (not just pumped and feed it to him), I put it in a jug of warm water until I gave it to him. He drank it but didnt fall asleep while drinking, He was upset and confused but he did drink it.

So I guess I'm going to be pumping and feeding via bottle for a couple of days. I dont like it but it hurts a lot less to pump then to fed so I'm going to try it and hope it helps.

Morning mamas!

Janine, make sure you talk to a couple of doctors before having a hysterectomy. Always good to get a second opinion on any surgery, but this especially because it affects your hormones for the rest of your life. It may be possible to solve your problems without surgery, or less lurgery, IDK. I myself have disabling period pain, to the point of violent vomiting and such, and so I went on Depo to make it stop. Ironically it is worse for many to take depo, and it can cause weight gain, etc but for me it's better than the alternative.

So us southern wimps suffered through our first night in our MI house, and already put the heat on. :rofl: In August. We decided to all sleep in the basement because it was cooler and a better way to contain all the kids (read: keep Ian from falling down the stairs while we were sleeping LOL) and we were SO cold. It was probably low to mid 60s, not bad, but way cooler than we were used to sleeping in, especially in the summer. We only had sheets and summer clothes so we were chilly.

Truck should be here in a couple of hours. Can't wait. So much to do, but we can't do it until our stuff is here, LOL.

I need coffee. And there is no coffee maker here now. I may have to make DH go to this Tom HOrton's y'all keep talking about.

Janine, I read about the foot and was horrified. I am so going to keep that in mine for all cuts here. Yikes.

:hugs: on the thrush Janine. I hope the pumping break and cream will help.
I had to take diflucan orally fir 2 weeks to finally get rid of mine. No fun!!

We are off to a lazy start this morning. B didn't sleep very well. I wish I knew why he was waking up crying in the night!? :headscratch:

Not much on the agenda here, just the usual.

Good morning. Elisha woke up after his diaper change and decided he didn't want to nurse back to sleep, he wanted to lay in bed and talk to me. It was cute, but I try to let DH sleep in a little since he's got the baby all day. So, we're downstairs in the living room on the floor having "conversation" and play time. He loooooves to wake up and talk now. It's so cute, though I wish it was at 7am instead of 6am.

He's trying to turn around on his play mat to see what I'm doing on the computer. I :wub: it.

:hugs: Janine. I hate pumping; I find it uncomfortable. But, I still try to pump twice a day while at work so there's milk for hubby. Elisha still isn't a fan of the bottle and he doesn't eat while I'm at work 50% of the time. He'll snack on a few ounces then quit. So, I know how that is. I'm sorry about the thrush. I have a feeling that makes pumping even less fun than I imagine.

As for the hysterectomy, I'll be praying the doctors help you make the right decision. If you're done with kids and in so much pain, I can totally see why that'd be an option. You'd have to take hormones, though, wouldn't you? My mom had a hysterectomy after my brother was born—she wanted them to take her uterus after they took my brother out by c-section, but the doctors said there was no medical reason to do it. So, a few months later, she was diagnosed with endometreosis. She got to say, "I told you so." It was a rough six months—two c-sections in half a year, basically.

Hmm. What do I want for breakfast?

:wave: Cheryl. I'm glad you all made it safely to the new house! Good luck with the movers/unpacking today!

I forgot MI has weird soda can/bottle laws here. My soda habit is going to be expensive and a PITA, LOL. It's been a long time since I lived anywhere that had bottle/can deposits, about five years actually. Amsterdam is the same, and people thought I was a homeless person I guess because I'd come in with BAGS of 1-liter soda bottles (because that was the most cost-effective way to buy it, and they aren't into the soda like we are in the US). We haven't had bottle deposits in TX for literally decades.

:roflmbo:

I remember my first winter in Japan. I lived in Florida for 10 years before I moved overseas. Japan has no central heating ... and my homestay family didn't have a heater in their bathroom. It was ... uh ... an "experience." I was cold ... very cold.

I love Tim Hortons! There's one in Ohio when we go home to visit our families. They've got great coffee. Yum.

Update: Elisha is doing little mini push-ups when he plays on his tummy. And he just scooted halfway across his mat. I think we're going to have an early crawler ... I guess that means it's time to baby proof. :blush:

Babyproofing is an ongoing process, and different for every child. Ian is 2yo and we are still babyproofing, LOL. Since he's stronger, taller, and more coordinated than his sisters were at the same age, we had a whole bunch of new challenges with him we didn't see coming.

Janine, I hate pumping. I had to do it a lot with the girls, and I decided with Ian I just wouldn't. DH was SO mad, especially when Ian turned out to refuse formula altogether. He got in the habit of giving the girls a formula bottle before bed as infants to get them to sleep longer at night, and he couldn't do that with Ian. I never had thrush with him tho, so I literally never pumped with him at all...so nice. DOn't envy you now, with the pain and the pumping.
