Sunday Randoms

edited January 2015 in October 2014 Moms
Because I'm sitting here pumping, and the episode of Friends on TBS right now is "The One With the Breastmilk". I was amused, and there was no one to tell. (Except LO, but she was like, "So?")image Edit - look at me! I can learn things! Knowledge is power. Also - right now, I feel like every single shirt I own looks like Will's accidental belly shirt up there. And my belly kind of looks like that too.

  • Well, crap. Why is Will Ferrell on pause? Fail.

  • DS has hit this sleep regression that I've seen a few posts about, he went through a stage of sleeping from like 10.30- 6... Now he is awake every couple of hours, just as I was getting used to sleep again.

    Those who have been through this, how long did it last?
  • Morning lady's! So cradle cap is not supposed to be itchy, right? I CANNOT get rid of dd's and she's always reaching her hand up to her scalp and "scratching". She doesn't do that anywhere else on her body so I assume it must itch?

    Could it be something besides cradle cap? It doesn't look like eczema. How long is cradle cap supposed to last? Am I supposed to wash her hair every day and use the comb? How do I get rid of it? I try and scrub well with a wash cloth or soft bristle brush when she gets a bath every 3 days but it always comes back in a couple days.
    We are so excited to grow our family!

    LO still has it but she hasn't been scratching. I use the soft bristle brush from the hospital but it doesn't seem to do much. Don't know if itching is normal but actually now that I think about it I don't know why it wouldn't itch.
  • Happy Sunday lady's! I'm still here & sick as shit! Actually we're all still sick! The twins are a hot mess, it's been tough! They are fussy, running fevers & just want to nurse, nurse, nurse! Even though DH is sick as hell he's been a trooper, so that's a positive! I missed you notches! I'd like to keep up today but I don't see it happening! Have a great Sunday!

  • Yesterday I had a date with a friend, lunch and shopping with no kids. I had been looking forward to it all week. On my way to meet her a young kid rear ended me on the highway pushing me into the car in front of me. Don't get me wrong I am grateful I wasn't hurt and even more grateful I was alone in the car. Just annoyed that I didn't get to meet my friend and even more annoyed I have to deal with getting a rental and my car repaired. Ugh

  • @sabby2‌ - in some cases cradle cap can be itchy. DD had a mild case. I used olive oil and rubbed it on her head and let it sit about 15 minutes then used a soft brush to remove the flaky skin then bath immediately after. It worked great. I tried baby oil and had a hell of a time getting it out of her hair for some reason

  • @ANGnJON‌ hope everyone feels better soon!!
  • Do you guys think we lost @persephonerose‌ forever after her wildly unpopular FFFC? I hope she comes back. I liked her.

    Yeah, I was just thinking this same thing yesterday! I'm hoping she's just busy with the toddler & twins!

  • I posted this in the other place, but adding it here for those who haven't migrated yet:
    Fuck me sideways. Remember how I confessed that the one time I had PP sex, it was a surprise...so unprotected? And how many of you promised to cross all your crossables? Well, you SUCK at crossing, or maybe y'all didn't cross them hard enough. (love you anyway)

    I peed on a fucking stick this morning. Then I threw the biggest tantrum. I don't want to do this again! I don't need this shit right now.

    And yeah, I know: Should have been responsible, you're an adult, birth control, protection, blah blah blah. Not helpful at this point

  • So many morning smiles from my LO today!  I have named all of DS's toys with names that tickle me.  Pam the lamb, Darrel (a plush monkey/rattle) and Karen (a mouse with rings attached) are his favorite toys.  It makes it more amusing to me to refer to them as those adult sounding names as we play.

    @ANGnJON‌ - I hope everyone recovers quickly.  I know how hard that is with one baby, I can't imagine twins!

  • @Syllessa‌, so sorry about the timing.
    Have you told your SO?

    Not yet. He's on his way home from work, and with everything going on, I just don't want to tell him. I know I have to, and I will today, but I really just don't want to deal with it.

    Holy shit @Syllessa‌. Babies are always a blessing? All the feels for you.

    Babies are blessings. DS came at a time that wasn't convenient but I'm so so glad that he's here.
    I'm trying to tell myself this, but it does not compute.

    Our pedi didn't have us do anything because he remained hydrated, was eating normally, and was acting completely fine. You can call your pedi's nurses line to see if they want you to monitor anything specific, or how long they think she should go before being seen.

  • MIL is here. It's fine. She just stresses me out. FIL apparently called my dad crying because he doesn't want to apologize to me for the things he said. He apologized to my dad though so wtf.

  • @syllessa holy crap. Just take things one day at a time!

    @SPurp13‌ I would call your pedi and see what they say. Dd had a few days where she had diarrhea and they told me just to watch for signs of dehydration or a temperature.

    DD is currently asleep on my lap. She gives me all of the feels!!!
