February 2013 Moms

Tuesday confession

I went grocery shopping yesterday and realized when I got to the check-out that there was not a single fresh fruit or vegetable in my cart. Frozen, yes. Fresh, no. Embarrassed I justified it by saying to myself that it didn't make sense to buy fresh when I might end up in the hospital any day and it would all spoil at home, but really I realized it's because all of my meal plans revolve around me spending as little time on my feet chopping things in the kitchen as possible because I'm so achy and tired.

Any other confessions even though it's not yet Friday?

Re: Tuesday confession

  • It's been days since I've eaten anything green. Or any fruit, for that matter. I am already a horrible mother D:

  • I'm starting to get really annoyed at being pregnant still. All of these outside babies coming right before their due dates is irritating me. Why won't my baby come out? 40 weeks 3 days is long enough. I've been 3 cm for 3 weeks! I go in today and am terrified of the induction talk. I went natural with DS1 and fully intended to do the same this time. But with the days slipping by my natural birth is too. :(

  • I really hate that the one nurse at the ob's office refers to me as Prego. I have a name and I'm not a can of tomato sauce!

  • I actually prefer frozen fruits and veggies in the winter, as well as the stuff I can from my garden.  They say that frozen stuff has more nutrients because it was picked at the peak of ripeness and frozen.  The produce you buy in the grocery store in the winter was usually picked before it ripens and shipped from warmer climates, sprayed to artificially ripen, and then put on the shelves.  So technically, you're probably making a better nutritional choice buying the frozen :)

    We went grocery shopping yesterday and the only fresh stuff I bought was some lettuce and strawberries.  The rest was all frozen.  I live in Ohio though.  If I lived somewhere warmer I where things actually grow in the ground right now I'd buy more fresh.

        
  • My house is trashed.  Dh and I picked up last night, but then dd wouldn't sleep, I inadvertently gave her a nice dose of red dye 40.  She went psycho, got out every toy she owned, climbed everything should could, simply destroyed the house.  Plus, I am still on restrictions, so bending to pick things up hurts, and I have been over doing it lately.  My mom is coming over to take DS to the doctor with me today, and I really want to leave the mess for her, I know she will pick it up for me without me asking......

    Hi, are you me? I could have written this word for word (almost, I haven't had any checks so I have no clue if I'm dilated yet).  I am going with a birth center this time and my whole family thinks I'm nuts. I'm thinking it will be my luck to go all the way to 42 weeks and end up with c-section and the naysayers will be right.  And I will be devastated with PPD. 

    DS came at 40 wks, 2 days, so I did not expect to still be pregnant today. Wah!

  • I get this overwhelming panicky feeling come over me when someone in our family talks about how excited they are for LO to come and hold him, snuggle him, kiss on him, etc.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm so happy they're excited and I can't wait to see them with him....but I have this "momma bear" thing come over me where I think "no, it's my baby!  Nobody can have him but me!"

    It's been me and him for 9 months now and I just can't imagine him not being right by me and with somebody else, on the other side of the room.

    I feel like a jerk but I know it's completely normal.

  • I'm such a horrible DIL...

    MIL called DH yesterday and told him that the heat was out in most of their house with the exception of their "den" (garage converted into a den that has a separate heating system). She didn't ask to stay with us and as best as DH could tell, she wasn't fishing for an invitation either. Spending time with my ILs on my best day is... challenging.

    At 37 weeks pregnant, itching like crazy, hands that are killing me and not being able to sleep well... you get the idea.

  • I'm 37 weeks today and I'm,100% done and want to be in labor.  With dd I was all for going until 42 weeks if it meant going into labor naturally, but this time I'm just tired and fed up with the aches and pains. We're setting up my induction @ my next appt (Because of my history, not just beacause I'm over it), but I feel guilty for not feeling guilty if that makes any sense.  Last time they had to fight me into an induction (which I thankfully didn't end up needing). This time I didn't even hesitate. Here's to hoping I go naturally anyways. Like today.

  • Oh another one.... Yesterday DD was in the bathroom with me as I did my makeup, she went giggling out of the room saying "bobble bobble bobble" ( bottle) so I was thankfully curious what this was about, I find her laying in my bed, about to drink from my pp water bottle that I use when I pee.  

    And a few nights before, I found her drinking fil coffee from the trash.

  • I picked all the marshmallows out of the lucky charms box last night and ate a bowl with milk of just the marshmallows for dinner and then again for breakfast this morning.  I then ate a bag of fruit snacks....

    LOL!

    I am also getting a little irritated at peanut's lack of arrival but I still have some time to go so I guess I should just quit it! I'm also starting to forcibly refrain myself from telling my mother that it's MY baby, not HER grand-baby (which I'm sure many others have had to do)!

    I started keeping green smoothies in the fridge given my overall lack of anything produce-like in my diet up until a few weeks ago. Now, all I want is oranges and cantaloupe!

  • I ran out of test strips last night for my glucose monitoring, but am hoping to be induced this week (fingers crossed). I'm still taking my insulin, but I'm not gonna bother buying more strips at $80 for a weeks use. What's the point?? I've had enough of GD already!!

  • I am heating up a frozen french bread pizza for breakfast. And will wash that down with some cookies.

    It is my due date. I have no signs of imminent labor. And I am going on week 12 of PUPPPs rash. I am going to try not to lose my sh*t on anyone today, but I make no promises.

    I like cookies.

  • My SD'S Birthday is a month exactly after my due date. A month. I refuse to throw an actual party bc I don't want LO exposed to all those germy people. Zoo/Children's Museum here we come! I feel awful about my germ phobia. My MIL is on me about not throwing a real party for her. She said she wanted to go to the zoo and shopping. Dh is on my side....but I still feel guilty. :/

    I feel ya....I'm glad that she stayed in since I had a cerclage, but now it's like hello, you can come out now! I have to be induced Friday if she doesn't come by then and I really don't want that. And according to the u/s she's already a pretty good size so I'm getting a little worried, even though I'm planning on getting an epidural.

    I'm with both of you other than I'm a FTM.  41 weeks is PLENTY OF TIME IN UTERO!  GTFO already kid!  I really wanted to go 100% med/intervention free, but I'm soooooooo done with being pg.  Induction set up for Friday.  Hoping baby arrives before then, but not terribly optimistic.
