Re: Monday Bitchfest

  • LO usually sleeps pretty well but last night he was up at 1230 and 4. I told my husband this in the morning (because obviously he stayed sound asleep) and said I was exhausted. He proceeds to listen to loud music while showering just to ensure I didn't get more sleep. I was so pissed...still am. 
  • Today is my first day back at work.  LO stayed up 4 hours past his bedtime and then only slept for 1.5 hours at a time.  Today is going to be hell.

  • My husband used my teasing brush to clean out his paint brushes....he's a painter. When I asked my he used used it he said oh I didn't know what it was. Really it was in the bathroom with my brushes! I told it was for back combing and of course that got a smart response. Lol he owes me a new one that's for sure!
    @nackie I honestly think babies can sense anxiety and such. I bet yours could sense yours that may be why he was up so much? Good luck today and I hope tonight goes better.

  • My toddler is pushing his luck. I love him, I really do, but he is being a raging jerk today.

  • Poor 3 month old has had a cold since starting daycare at the beginning of the month. It turned into bronchiolitis and we had to start him on a nebulizer, and today he spiked a fever so we went back to the dr. Double ear infection. Just what we needed. Ugh. 
  • After all the hell with retained placenta, hemorrhage during d&c, unexpected 3 day hospital stay, finding out that it was placenta accreta then seeing adhesions in my uterus on the ultrasound, I now have to see an infertility specialist to try and maintain my fertility. However, she is booking in mid July so I feel like this saga is never going to end. I'm so ready to put this behind me.. :( 
  • My body. Though I have many complaints, it's my legs that have been bothering me the most lately. They just hurt so bad! I want to walk/work out but everything just hurts, especially my feet and knees. I thought this pain was related to pregnancy and would ease up a few weeks after giving birth but it hasn't, so I hope it's not something more serious.
  • @ekscopp my heart hurts for you, I'll be thinking so many strong, healthy thoughts for you!

    The mini boss lady is on a sleep strike. 3 days of minimal sleep, plus allergies that make me want to rip my face off, and I can't take anything because I'm fighting a low milk supply.

    I came home from work and just cried.

  • @fishee333 I have a lot of knee pain too and asked some mom friends about it. One had foot pain, another hip pain... they say my aches are pregnancy-related and for both it took about a year to go away. I plan to mention mine next time I'm at the doctor, but since I don't think I injured myself I think it's just something I have to endure for now. I hope we both get some relief soon!
  • @mamadcb hmm I'm glad I'm not the only one, I hope it goes away sooner than a year though!

    @fishee333 I'm experiencing the same thing so I googled. Apparently it's pretty common but not mentioned often. I read the same thing mamadcb's friends said, it can take about 9 months to a year to go away completely.

  • I know it's not Monday but I have to bitch somewhere! One of DS's teachers at daycare has poked holes in 2 bottle nipples. I explained the importance of pace feeding to keep him from gulping his bottle down. Apparently someone didn't get the message! I'm pretty sure it's his afternoon teacher as it's only one bottle and his morning teacher is there for two feedings. DH is upset because we have to buy new nipples. They don't cost much but he doesn't like that someones actions are forcing us to do so.
    I called the school today when we got home, after discovering the hole today, and was told they would address it tomorrow when both teachers are present.

    Wait it's Monday right.... 


    I just needed to add if someone were poking holes in my baby's bottle I think I would explode so I give you props for the adult like phone call. Between the year long 4th leep, 4 month sleep regression games and my husband out of the country for 9 days my brain is officially broken.

    I would be so. pissed. We have to pace feed, and while daycare was trying, it took them a good week to get it down. That's a week of misery for LO. That probably would be enough for me to pull her out and relocate her. You don't mess with their health. The first few days, I told them that she eats every 2-3 hours, but if she was napping, it was OK if she went ONCE with a four-hour gap. It ended up being every feeding was with a four-hour gap--sometimes only two bottles all day! After speaking to the teacher several times, I finally had to type something up, make three copies, and pass them out to the director, the a.m. teachers, and the p.m. teachers. Something about having it in writing got through to them. I was extra concerned because our LO doesn't raise the alarm anymore when she's hungry, so if you don't get her on a schedule, she doesn't get enough calories. (Although, right now, she's going through a growth spurt, and is giving hunger cues of screaming in your face if you don't feed her, so I think they're getting the message. :)  )
  • It's Monday and I didn't see one for today so I'm going to put this here. 

    Im tired, like more tired than I've ever been in my entire life tired. 
    My body is tired. My mind is tired my existence is tired. 
    I don't even know why. 
  • nackienackie member
    I'm also more tired than I've ever been in my life, including the time we had an emergency at work and I had to work a 24 hour shift.  But I know why.
    In related news, we've regressed all the way out of the crib and back into the rock and play. 
  • I haven't been on here much lately for a good reason - things have been going really smoothly and I feel like I'm in a happy little routine and mostly over my PPD and PPA, BUT, fun story, I had something happen today that majorly triggered my anxiety.  :/  We had a pediatrician other than ours check out LO in the hospital when she was born because our pediatrician didn't service that hospital.  No big deal, it's fine, they send the records over to our pediatrician.  Well it's taken forever and a day to get the records.  We were told they would automatically send them to our doctor, but then that turned out not to be true.  They told my husband they wouldn't send them to our pediatrician's office, they had to release them to us, then we had to deliver them there.  Fine.  They mailed them, we finally got them today.  I would have assumed that if there was anything wrong or flagged in the testing they would have let us know.  Apparently not!  So, there are a bunch of amino acids that they test newborns for and one was flagged as high.  I looked up what could cause it and it's a kidney/urine issue that is FATAL if untreated.  Luckily, she doesn't have it (because if she did, she'd be um, DEAD, because the longest any infant has gone without having it untreated was 17 days!)  I, of course, found this out after their office and our pediatrician's office is closed, so I am just beside myself with anger and anxiety.

    It's a really, really, really rare thing to actually have this kidney/urine thing.  Like, 1 in 57,000 rare.  So it's highly unlikely she would have had it in the first place and it was probably just an fluke or too small of a sample (which can happen) but since it's so deadly, everything I found online says you want to find out immediately if this amino acid is elevated so they can immediately do further testing to make sure it isn't that rare issue.  The site also said I should have been notified by the pediatrician and the state, and I wasn't contacted by anybody.  There could be a perfectly fine reason as to why no one was concerned, like other markers indicating it wasn't anything to worry about, but I need a doctor or at least a receptionist to go over that with me, instead of just mailing paperwork like it's no big deal and offering no explanation for the abnormal test.

    Also, they spelled my husband's name wrong on the form.  Twice.  His name is Keith.  It is really not that hard.  Anyway, I am trying to relax, will speak with our pediatrician in the morning.  *deep breath*
  • @nackie. I thought i was the only one dealing with that. She used to be a good sleeper. Slept through the night at 6 weeks! I weny back to work and sleep is just a crap shoot. I can't get her down before 9. I get up at 4am for work so that's not fun. Shes up at least once during the night. Last night it was 3 times. She hasn't done that since around 6 weeke. My husband fell asleep on the couch at 730. Its 430 am and he's still sleeping. I'm so jealous lol
  • I decided to count how many times LO gets up tonight and we have to help her resettle. Went to bed at 8, and its now 2 (doing our motn feed now), and shes been up 14 times! Omg. I'm going to stop counting now and just pray that the rest of the night gets a little better. Need. Sleep. Please.
  • kaym6kaym6 member
    @fishee333 omg I would be dead all I can offer is positive thoughts as you try to cling to your sanity

  • I really do feel for all you sleep regression moms right now, it lasted a month straight for us plus we had to unswaddle, transition to crib and to the nursery during that time too. I had nights of getting up every 45 mins, sometimes taking up to 2 hours to get LO back to sleep and i have no idea now I functioned let alone survived work but you just do what you have to do sometimes! But it did get better! 

    I just have to add in for my Monday bitchfest that I missed yesterday. I seriously hate my boobs, I literally call myself the queen of clogged ducts. Really want to make it to 6 months of breastfeeding but at this point Idk if I can keep dealing with this. I know it wouldn't be the end of the world but I also know the weaning process isn't gonna be great either bc I'm already so prone to these clogs
  • lrayaslrayas member
    @kwentela yeah the weaning process sucks! Currently doing it now and omg it's so painful and uncomfortable. I wish we had an on and off switch.

    OMG! I would be filing a grievance with that hospital! That's unprofessional and unacceptable. I would also tell the hospital that if anything results from their negligence that you will hold them responsible! What an awful place!
