  • After my horrific delivery and recovery, my inlaws gave us an overnight doula as a gift. Six nights a week for six weeks. I relish the sleep. Also, I haven't told many of our IRL friends with kids because I don't want to get judged.

    i am jealous.  But you definitely earned it!

    I am tempted to tell DH to sleep on the couch tonight. DD is in our room and up a lot at night obviously. He has been a cranky brat from being tired. Yes, I understand he is back to work already and doesn't get naps. Frankly I haven't gotten much rest this week either with various appointments and housework and the like. We're all tired, DH. Man up and stop taking it out on me.

  • DH was suppose to take a week off of work to help me with our toddler and a newborn. Well, I had R on Saturday and he went back to work, working 10 hour or more days on Tuesday.

    Last night, I made DH get up to change and burp R every time I had to feed him. I didn't care he had to be at work at 6:30. I wanted some sleep too dang it.
  • I cried 20 times yesterday and that may be a low estimate. I tried the LC's advice to get LO off the nipple shield and it was a disaster. I think I was more upset than LO. My head hurts today from all the crying... today has to be better!

  • My LO was s demon yesterday with colic and I really wish I could have had someone else to hand her off to. I love her but it was miserable. I'm also annoyed with DH because he flaked on mother's day and now I won't be able to get the mothers necklace I desperately wanted.

    So sorry to hear this.  I've had those days too.

  • I was brushing my teeth the other day and looked at my hand and noticed a big smear of baby poop.  I shrugged and kept on brushing.

  • I confess I don't quite feel as connected with my new DD as I did when my DS was born. DD cries all the time and is a gassy, fussy and an overall dramatic baby. My DS was such a good baby. Of course I love her, I just think it's going to take more time to bond with her. It doesn't help that everytime I kiss her she starts to wail... lol. It's hard having a baby and not being able to console them. It makes me feel like I'm failing her. I know it's going to get better as time goes by, it is rough sometimes though! At least my 2 year old DS likes me again. Pity party over.

    I confess that I'm counting down the days until Reese becomes "fun" and is able to respond more to us, whenever that is. The constant fussiness has to end at some point, right?

    I am afraid to have sex again. I know I have a few weeks to worry about it, but the phrase hot dog down a hallway keeps coming to mind.

  • I enjoy taking pics of DS in funny poses and giving them completely inappropriate captions. I do, however, keep them off fb and just send them to DH.

    Like the other day he had his hand on his face and it looked like he was flipping the bird. I sent it to DH with the caption,"this is what I think of you ever sleeping again." ;

    we had a couple days like this this week as well..... I can relate and it sucks. Hang in there!

     

    my confession: I have my 6 week coming up. DH is thrilled and keeps talking about sex. I am terrified and also have ZERO interest. My vagina is still in exit only mode, and a libido?? Yeah, don't seem to know what that is. Hoping this changes at some point, but I'm fearful!

  • My confession is pretty flammable, and I'm trying to get over it, but can't help myself.  I judge moms who have no breastfeeding issues and decide to stop, especially when it's because they're "going back to work."  I know this is horrible, and I realize that I can never know the exact situation (for example, I'd feel HORRIBLE if I later found out a new mama had abuse issues, and truly BF'd for just as long as she could stand it before stopping), but I find myself judging a little despite myself.  I just wanna be like, you can still bf while you're at home, or just pump even once a day at work whenever you can fit it in... After the first 6 months the judgment goes away.

    Like I said, I know this is totally flame-worthy.  I really try to be on "team feed your baby" but it still just really annoys me when I hear about situations like this. 

    I know it's really crappy of me but it's always my gut reaction :(

  • I know I should enjoy my baby while he's a baby, but right now, with every day that passes, I think "thank goodness I will never go through that again".

  • I have two....

    1. My DH's coousin had her son 6 days after me and she told me yesterday that she is back to 119lbs. that she only gained 18lbs during her pregnancy. I decided after that conversation to go home and eat ice cream to drown my sorrows....

    2. I have been avoiding going back into work to see people, well today I went in and received a pack n play... wooo whoo. But they also boxed all my stuff up and gave it to me. (They are downsizing and I am only a temporary). So kind of bummed and think ice cream sounds good again.

  • Sometimes when I am feeling especially sleep deprived I just want LO to shut the h up. Then I feel bad thinking it. 

    I know I really can't complain because I have a pretty easy baby, I don't know how you moms with colicky babies do it

  • I confess I can't stop looking at Sully's newborn photos.  I've been saving and re-saving and after six hours, my siggy is finally updated (thanks, bump).  Now I'm just staring at her on my screen again.

    We plan on having one more, but I feel like this anyway!  I'm not really a fan of the newborn stage, even though I know I shouldn't be impatient because it goes by so quickly!

    That sucks. Were you planning to stay home or will you have to look for something new? I understand that downsizing happens without regard to your schedule, but it always seems a little shady to me to lay off someone on maternity leave.

  • Ah, here is one.

    I HATE breastfeeding.

    There, I said it.
    I hate the first few weeks when it hurts so bad. I hate how my boobs look. I hate how let down feels...
    The only reason I do it is because I know its better for baby, and you can't beat the cost savings.

    I will admit, I did cry when D self weaned from the breast and only wanted sippies at 10 months.

    Don't you have a real, live baby to admire in close proximity? Just kidding.

    I'm anxiously awaiting our newborn photos. I had to negotiate a bit to not have them filled with pink and giant headbands. Our photographer is my cousin so I had to be tactful. But when she pulled out a headband that was literally a bird's nest, I almost died. DH would have killed me. He hates headbands.

  • I kind of had a feeling this would happen, so I habe been looking but taking the summer off and being with LO doesn't sound terrible, just kind of stinks.

    not to mention when your bib starts randomly spraying while getting dressed! Always a good time!
