Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 4th - 10th

Had an exhausting weekend.....

I had my u/s on Saturday (I posted a thread about it.... got to see the HB!!), then I had to rush home to get ready for DH's Holiday office party, all while dealing w/ a feverish, teething 20 month old that I was going to have to leave w/ the ILs . I looked a little too pregnant for my taste in my dress, and I noticed that a lot of people would glance down at my belly after saying hello. DH hasn't told anyone yet. It was open bar, and I drank cranberry and gingerale all night. The food was awesome, the dessert even better Chocolate cannoli!!

Sunday, DH took the older 2 to church while I stayed home w/ the cranky teether. He's not much better today, either. I can only get him to eat grapes.

But, on a positive note, DH and I decided on a girl's name, and we got the boys names on the table (decided nothing, though).

Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 4th - 10th

I tried to eat a protein-heavy breakfast this morning and I feel much better than usual. I am usual a fruit and (whole grain) toast kind of a gal but that just hasn't been cutting the queasies. Less toast than usual and a half cup of cottage cheese did the trick! I am trying to find the secret to feeling full enough not to be queasy without gaining 10 pounds in my first trimester. I think I've already gained 3-4...


It is ridiculous how tired I have been.. I took a 1-2 hour nap yesterday afternoon and still slept from 10:30-7:30 today. DS slept GREAT last night so I only had to get up once or twice to go to the bathroom.

Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 4th - 10th

so finally at 2:30pm on December 5th, I FEEL FULL. This is amazing. But it really sucks how I've gotten here. 2 bowls of cereal at 9am, 2 pieces of whole wheat toast with some cottage cheese at 11am, and 2 bowls of mini bowties with sauce at 2pm. I finally feel satisfied and don't want to gnaw off my left arm!

I did get an awesome gift today.. my son slept until 10:30am!! I thought he was dead, but I heard him breathing away.. I think he hit his 18 month growth spurt along with him cutting a few teeth and being a little under the weather. He was just plain tired. He slept for 14 hours! Needless to say, he's just going down for his nap.. so praying he can fall asleep and get some more rest. First appt is on Thursday!

Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 4th - 10th

Yesterday I had a day of feeling good! Yay! I had my first have-to-eat-NOW pregnancy moment too. We were shopping about an hour before dinner time, and suddenly I started to feel woozy and dizzy, even though I had just eaten some trail mix. I have been craving Subway, so we found the closest one, and I gobbled down a foot long no problem. Yikes.

Today I'm back to feel awful. :-/ We went furniture shopping all morning, and I kept feeling sick, and my husband said, "Why don't you put on your puke bands??" (That's what he calls me Sea Bands, haha.) Duh. Why didn't I think of that?! They were in my purse, so I put them on, and that helped a lot. But driving home for an hour with my DD whining in the back seat didn't help. My DH didn't finish his lunch, and he left the food out, and I kept smelling it (until I put it away). I'm back to feeling ugh. I'm so tired too. Time for a nap!

Got some newborn cloth in the mail this morning from FSOT. Now that makes me feel good.

Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 4th - 10th

well I'm off to the ER.

I was grocery shopping after picking up DS at preK this afternoon. Felt a little crampy and then like my entire insides fell out. Blood was everywhere. I also passed out at the checkout line. DH came and picked us up at the store and drove us home.

Took a shower, kept bleeding and passing clots. Started feeling okay so I drove DH back to the store to get his car so he could go to work.

Got home...called the advice nurse and she said since I lost that much blood and passed out then I should be at the ER. She told me I have to call my husband now. So I did.




I just can't do this anymore

I could have written this myself, exactly how I felt today. I actually wore maternity jeans today.
