I need a distraction. I was gonna take DS out for a fun date like chuck e cheese or bouncy place but just found out we are having a blizzard watch and are advised not to drive anywhere. Great. Oh and my sister is having contractions. She is 36 weeks. I want to cry. I'm never having this baby. I'm going to sit here all dilated and effaced for the rest of my life lol! My house needs cleaned because my DH trashed the kitchen making dinner last night and DS is just a mess everywhere he goes. I feel trapped today. In my dirty house, in my giant body. Blah.

Re: Winter wonder 1/12

Stacie, hope your day improves quickly.

My mom is coming Saturday... not sure if she will end up meeting the baby or not, but she is going to hang out with DD and entertain her which I am totally ready for. Thinking of sending the two of them off on adventures and staying home.

No jello cake yesterday- all of my cake mixes were expired- definite bummer. I had to settle for brownies instead.

Leah. You are a much nicer wife than I am. I would have made up the couch with DH's pillow and blanket if he came at me like that... Then I would have locked him out of out room.

I got the car seat situation figured out. Well, actually my sister did. I was ready to cry when I could not get the third one in my back seat. I have a sedan and three car seat kids (two of which have to rear face - once this baby is born). Ugh. Going to try and rest now. My stomach is hard as a rock.

I went grocery shopping which was a horrible idea without dh. Dd and snow with me is just horrible. Of course I dont have a maternity winter jacket so I made it work with layers etc. stopped and got some
$1 cheeseburgers and took one to dh since he is out in the snow all day. got everything unloaded and organized the food cabinets. Did my post it notes in the kitchen and cook book. Put some in the main bath, dd room and the hall way. Half hour till I'll start dinner. Wooo

Actually my mil will be way more helpful than anyone. She will cook and do laundry and my fil will vacuum. They are also going to take the boys up to dh's soccer tourney. She can just be annoying

Re: Winter wonder 1/12

Hmmmmm, just had four contraxs 12min apart. Not painful though, just tight and tingly, so probably not the start of the real thing. But a good sign that things are ramping up anyway. And not sure I want a Friday the 13th baby!

Anyway, was out with ds most of the day so that's probably why I'm getting the contraxs. Just resting and drinking my RRL tea now. Probably get in a bath with ds soon and see if that changes things. I did notice lots more BH yesterday as well as more cm. . .so *something* is shifting. . .

Post partum mamas- this is TMI i know but any of you notice a nasty odor from your *ehem* lady parts?? I cant really describe it.... I'm sure its just from my uterus being closed up 9 months but man i dont remember this smell with DD1. Its different then period blood smell. My bleeding is really light and has almost stopped but the smell is still strong.

Re: Winter wonder 1/12

Yup the smell is different. My bleeding had tapered off but now has increased again and I'm hurting more ugh. Anyway I think the smell change is normal

tmi... i had this smell at my 6 week pp appt. it had started maybe a week before? she thought it was an infection of some sort, but it ended up being nothing. i think just the last of the pp funk clearing out. it went away a few days later, and my regular cm started to return.
