I just want to sleep
Also, my H's tummy+turkey = booming nightmare of smells in bed. UGH!
So much pain. I don't know if I over did it this weekend, or if baby 2.0 is in a weird position, but my sciatic nerves in both legs are killing me. The left is worse than the right and I'm having shotting pains from my hips to my knee that have almost made me drop to the ground.
Oh, and I'm at work today. BAH Humbug!
"What did my fingers do before they held you? What did my heart do with it's love?"
For as helpful and amazing as my MIL (and FIL) were these last 6 days, she is now driving both DH and I insane. OMG. She gets too nutty around the holidays and all woe is me when plans don't go exactly how she wants them. Ahh!!
I forgot to wash the shirt I wanted to wear toomrrow. I'm not doing laundry today.
And Im' DYING to go to the chiro. I had to cancel my appt for Weds and this sciatica pain is making me crazy. I was holding D and doing squats almost in line yesterday because it was hurting and burning so bad.
Two little miracles made possible by the gift of life - Be an organ donor - Always thankful
I have to go grocery shopping and wrap gifts and clean my entire house by this afternoon....Once I finish this cup of coffee IT'S GAME TIME!
bumpie with sciatic nerve pain: see if you can get a referral for physical therapy! Your hips might be out of place or you might have strained something that is causing you this pain. This is now a recurring pregnancy-induced "injury" for me and it's better to nip it in the bud. I hope it's just normal and it goes away for you soon, but just in case that's my unsolicited advice!
jakstr0808:Abby fell last night and broke her front tooth. It chipped right across and is now a jagged point and is missing about 25 percent. She also stumbled today and something must've hit the sharp tooth because she started gushing blood out of her mouth. I couldn't see where it was coming from, maybe her tongue. I think I'll have to take her later this week to get it filed when I have someone around that can watch Emily.
There's a really great ped dentist in town here. Leave Emily with me and D and I will watch her :)
I'm feeling incredibly scroogey. J has been sick. Not diarrhea or vomit since Sunday morning at 2am, but his appetite is really diminished and he won't touch the Pedialyte. He ate okay yesterday, but hasn't had much today- a few bites of waffles and a few animal crackers. He'll take a bite of whatever I try to feed him, then refuse anything else. From what I read, it can take a few days for things to get back to normal, but I just want him to eat something!
Also, H and I got into a fight about what time we should leave for family. I say we leave tonight around 9pm. That way J sleeps basically the entire way and we can go to our thousand Christmas Day events. He wants to leave at 4am. It can take between 10 and 12 hours to drive, depending on our stops. We won't have to stop as much or for as long if J is sleeping, so we would be closer to the 10 hour mark. Waiting until 4 would mean j would wake up 1-2 hours into the trip and we would have to stop more frequently for him. H thinks we'll be too tired to drive overnight. I figure I'll go to sleep when I put J down at 6:30 and then drive the first leg. H is napping right now, which makes no sense to me. Also, we're staying at his parents' house, which is less than ideal, but better than my parents. So, I'm not looking forward to the trip at all. Bah humbug, right?
