Thursday UO

I double checked this time.  It is, in fact, Thursday.  Let's hear them!!

I'm clinging to this board for dear life these days as a form of entertainment so we gotta pick things up a bit around here!

Re: Thursday UO

  • Most days we don't put any clothes on LO.  She just hangs in her diaper.

    Not really an UO, but my ILs finally left today after a ten day visit.  Although my MIL was tremendously helpful in every way, I'm so glad to be able to begin enjoying LO privately for awhile.  

    Granted my parents arrive for a visit tomorrow afternoon...but they're only staying until Tuesday...and they are *my* parents, after all, LOL.

  • This is probably more of a FFC, but whatever. I can't wait to be done BFing, or pumping in my case. My boobs are out of control. They are huge. Stupid huge. I have a whole new respect for women who are naturally busty. I want my normal sized boobs back.

    This unpopular opinion is inspired by the thong thread. From that thread it seems thongs are pretty popular, so my unpopular opinion is that I think thongs are simply awful to wear. Every time I ever wore one, I felt like I had dental floss or something stuck up my butt. Also, I don't wear pants so tight or thin that a visible panty line would show through them, so that's not an issue for me. Bikinis all the way!
  • I have another one.  I hate hate hate wearing socks.  I avoid them whenever possible.

    I second this!  And honestly, it would never occur to me to judge anyone who had a VPL to begin with!

    I used to only wear thongs but I'm actually enjoying my giant granny panties!

    I agree!  I hate thongs!  It's so uncomfortable and I just feel like something is up my butt all day.  No thank you!  I like boy shorts.

    This. We attempted clothing yesterday and went through about four outfit changes before I gave up. If she seems cold, I just swaddle her.

    Also, I love my DH and he has been very helpful with LO. But lately I find myself wanting to throw things at his head all because I'm jealous that he gets to do things I can't. He can shower when he wants, sleep as long as he wants, move around the house in no pain, and even just go take a pee without making a production or having a tiny human screaming for his boobs. But he does a lot of diaper changes so I think I'll keep him.

    Inspired by today's trip to Marshalls - I think clothes with all-over designer logos are tacky (Coach sneakers, I'm looking at you).
  • I love thongs and can't stand not being able to wear them. They are super comfy to me.

    I'm feeling the same way, plus he gets to leave the house and interact with adults. It's really hard to swallow the jealousy and remember that this is all really temporary. Thanks for posting this and making me laugh about it!

    This is me too. I have a few that will wear if I need to wear dress pants. But I wear scrubs for work and my jeans don't usually show panty lines, so I just stick to bikini underwear!

    This. I find myself feeling bitter towards him because he gets to sleep so much.  He also gets to go to work all day.  I feel bad about that one because I love spending time with Lilly and I know I am going to be heart broken when I have to go back to work.

  • I don't want to go on a hormonal contraceptive. I'd rather use condoms. Too many deal-breaker side effects, and I don't want to risk (however small or insignificant the chance), not being able to BF as much as possible.

    This exactly! I love my DH but I am incredibly jealous that he can go out with out having to be home at a particular time, or having to worry about finding a place to nurse. I'm jealous that he gets to sleep whenever he wants to, and that he can actually eat a meal with two hands if need be. But as you said he does do an awful lot of diaper changes...so I'll keep him.

    Thank you! I feel the same way and people look at me like I'm crazy because I don't want to go back on the pill. I hated it when I was on it, so I prefer to use condoms. I keep getting, "What if the condom breaks?" questions like it is anyone else's business.
  • My UO is that I think mamas who didn't educate themselves about Breastfeeding can't actually say with certainty that "it didn't work."

    I'm prepared for flaming for that, but it's these moms who make expectant mothers fearful of planning to breastfeed. I think there are way more of the uneducated about Breastfeeding, don't care to educate themselves and gave it the amount of effort they cared to give it and then decided it didn't work type of moms than actual Breastfeeding moms who it truly didn't work for.

    for the moms who really do everything and educated themselves about all of the possibilities and it really didn't, my heart goes out to you!!

    I hate hormonal BC. I thought mirena would be different, but I hate it too. I'm giving it a month and if this awful bleeding doesn't stop its coming out. I don't know what we will do, but my body can't handle the hormones.

    Yes! This for me too! My H is great, but I find myself so jealous that he gets to go to work and work out with out too much trouble.  I require that he brings me one piece of gossip home every day so I feel connected to the outside.

    I don't have anything against thongs but I never understood why "visible panty line" around the leg is considered so much worse than "visible thong triangle."  When you are wearing tight pants you often see the seams and straps of a thong as well. Doesn't seem to solve the problem to me; I think material matters more than type.

    Oh, we had the most ridiculous fight because of this! DH was making meals and then getting annoyed because nursing was taking forever, so he'd eat and then watch me for the hour or two it took for LO to be done. Meanwhile I'd need two hands for LO and would be ravenous and watching DH shovel food in his face all free agent-like. He once set this pear out for me and ate it himself after two days because I hadn't eaten it. I had wanted it but had barely gotten meals down let alone snacks, and I felt so bummed about this and so jealous of his freedom and so sleep-deprived and extremely emotional that I cried. I also found myself nursing through the night and hating him because he was sleeping. 

    I would also get very short-tempered with him when he'd try to hand me snacks or bits of unfinished dinner while I was first learning how to breastfeed LO and definitely needed two hands. He'd get frustrated because I wouldn't take whatever it was from him, and I'd get frustrated back because I was hungry and couldn't take it from him.

    So he asked me one awful night why I was being so rude to him and I started howling that he was selfish and should make sure I eat first before tucking into his food like he had not a care in the world. He said I was selfish too because I cried when he ate the pear and he feels like he can't eat whatever he wants in his own house (this is a problem from way back when when he'd eat my food and his food and if I made 18 cookies he'd eat 17 of them in five minutes while I was away in the bathroom, that kind of thing). I said (I had to say it like six times before it penetrated) that it wasn't about the pear at all but just that I resented his freedom to eat, sleep, go to the bathroom, etc. while I had LO hanging off my boobs, and that I'd really like him to listen when I say I'm having trouble or need to pee and could he take LO or whatever. He then brought up three or four things I did eight years ago that hurt his feelings, and I forget what else happened, but we made up and now I think we're OK. But it was the silliest and most intense fight in the world. Sleep deprivation and big life changes will do that to ya, I guess.

    I still feel guilty when he insists I eat first while he holds LO before the next marathon nursing session, because I felt like a big a__hole howling that at him, but if it didn't happen that way, I'd pretty much never eat, so....I guess it was good that I did it.
