SAHParent/Homemaker weekly chat thread 10/1-10/6

Hey Momma's (and Dad's)!

This week, I am fall cleaning. Dh has Ds today at our home farm visiting grandma and pappy for the day. Iiiiiiiii.....on the other hand, am going shopping (for MYSELF!!! ) ALONE. I'm so just...excited. lol. I am also getting Ds some more clothes, getting some organizational items and going grocery shopping. When I get back, I am doing a total clean out and scrub down of the kitchen and living room (which shouldn't take long), then totally minimizing junk in the mudroom, bedrooms and bathroom (this should be my last round of minimizing...I've been doing it for months now and have just that last chunk of junk to get out of this house). The rest of the week will be baking and freezing meals for quick breakfasts and making healthy snacks.

Yay for you getting time alone!! I don't remember what that's like. :/ I'm going to finish folding the laundry that has piled up and scrub the kitchen down. I also need to work on our menu for the week and get my grocery list done so I can go shopping in the morning.
I've had to learn how to just try and get one thing done at a time with this pregnancy. I don't seem to have as much energy with #5 as I did with the others.

Autocorrect has helped me type this.

We are not having a good day today Despite the fact that I had a tubal 15 months ago, I got a few BFPs the other day. I told DH and while I was upset, he was excited and I was starting to come around... And then had some bad cramping and bleeding starting last night nobody even knows other than the two of us so it feels good to get it out, here. Very sad DH is trying to leave work to come home but with no luck, so I'm laying low and trying to wrangle the 1 and 2 year old from the couch.

hope your day gets better.


We're still in survival mode, dh is still on 12s. We're on our third movie already and I've changed 6 diapers. Tips for pt a stubborn 2.5 year old?

so sorry for your loss.

our house is also somber, as we found out over the weekend that our most recent round of ivf didn't work, and that insurance won't cover another round, so we're trying to plan out the $$$ aspect for one final round, since we absolutely cannot conceive without it (and we would totally have as many kids as nature intended if we could conceive naturally). and then, we had to spend a good chunk of the weekend with my brother and his wife who is due in 3 weeks, which is really hard right now. we found out they were expecting (a surprise to them, I think) during our first round of ivf, and here we are months and months later without a pregnancy, and only one shot left (cause we can't afford more than one round).


I have some serious fall cleaning to do this week, as my sister and her soon-to-be fiance are coming to visit this weekend, so I need to get the house ready. plus, our holiday of Sukkot started today, and I still have to get our sukkah finished, the budget isn't done for October, and we are behind where I was hoping we would be with homeschooling, so I need to readjust the plans. all in all, I feel behind the 8 ball and pretty grumpy about it.

Re: SAHParent/Homemaker weekly chat thread 10/1-10/6

Tried to do a bunch of errands today and only made it through half. No second nap today, meaning cranky baby after dinner He is so stubborn.

I have to plan what I am packing for Cabo this weekend without my DH or DS. I am getting nervous about leaving my DS, I just haven't before for more than a couple hours. I also have no idea what will fit me. Pre-DS I was a size 00 and wore 24 jeans and weighed less than 100 pounds. I am not that anymore. Not close. I have no clothes that fit me. I am not huge and generally am okay with how I look now, I think I look more than a woman with curves, but I haven't really bought new clothes and just not sure if I have three days of resortwear to fit me.... silly issues, I know And the bathing suit issue! Where can I get a one piece? Does anyone know?

As for my SAH life... I need to purge and organize. Kylee, tell me how fast you can get your house back together and you will motivate me! I need motivation. I need to get rid of these tiny clothes, they are depressing.

We found out I ovulate once a year and so the chances of concieving are next to none without meds. I go friday for some test results to officially confirm this and to start my first round. Many hugs your way Daddy.

take it easy on yourself Mama. Let the cleaning and homeschooling slow down a bit while you take care of your self emotionally.
