@theearlymajority I have a love/hate relationship with YouTube. DD would have it on all day if I
let her. But, I have to say, I’m thankful for the peaceful showers I’ve gotten and
the times I’ve been able to get the dishes done because of it. Don’t beat
yourself up. Being cooped up because of the weather can be difficult on
everyone in the house.
Due Date/W+D: Oct. 13
Other kiddos/ages: DD
turns 2.5 in a couple weeks.
Nails/Fails: DD has
had two successful dance/gymnastic classes so far, but today, she refused to
let go of me once we got to the studio. I tried everything I could think of to
make her feel comfortable and to at least have her sit in the studio and watch
the class (parents have to sit in a waiting room). I also tried my best not to
be obnoxious, but I think after a couple attempts, the instructor and other
parents started to get annoyed. I feel bad for everyone involved.
Diary? I’m super nervous about what having two kids will be like. I myself am
an only child and DD is really good at being one.
Appointments? No dates yet. I will be scheduling
an appointment on Tuesday.
Questions? Not yet.
GTKY: What is your favorite thing about being a
Getting to teach my own child, showing her all the cool
things about life, and seeing her reactions.
@grapeskittles4lyfe I did last pregnancy! I had a free trial from Beach Body online, they have a pregnancy series. I actually wrote them all down and then ended up just turning on music and following my notes after my trial ended 😬😂 the biggest thing is just listening to your body, you don't want to overdue it 😊 This pregnancy I actually started going to a Barre class once a week just before I found out I was pregnant and it's been going really well!
Good for all you ladies that are keeping fitness a priority! I don't think I'll be doing anything aside from the occasional walk during the first trimester, but I might possibly do a pre-natal yoga during the second tri. We'll see. Honestly I was pretty bad about fitness during my first pregnancy.
@soralette it is rough. The kids aren’t so bad as I hate letting the housework pile up. My hubby is being amazing though. My oldest is in kindergarten but we homeschool so he’s still at home with me. He’s being a good helper too though.
Atleast this time we know hard phases eventually end?
Due Date/W+D: Best Guess - October 12, 4 wks 5 daysOther kiddos/ages: 18 mth son Jackson ❤️Nails/Fails: Jax has been taking 2 hr +naps this whole week which has allowed me to get bills paid, catch up on homework, laundry and even paint my nails 💅 Fail: I feel like all I’ve been feeding him is chicken nuggets and PB+J every day! Kid is so picky!! And I keep cooking different meals and veggies, only to throw them out ! So discouraging and annoying Rants/Raves/Dear Diary? So one of my very dear best friends is constantly criticizing people on their parenting styles- this friend does NOT have children of her own. This bothers the heck out of me!!! Anyone else know someone like this? I remember before I had kids I might see something and be like whoa! Who does that ? But overall I’d keep comments to myself because you really don’t know how tough it is being a Mom until you’re there! Appointments? First MW appt and ultrasound on March 4th Questions? Any coffee drinkers out there that continue to drink through pregnancy? I don’t drink any soda or caffeine other than coffee but I’m hoping I can still have a small iced half calf from Dunks every day? My midwives last pregnancy were super ok with coffee but I feel like they’re lenient on a ton of stuff so hoping to get your feedback here ladies! GTKY: What is your favorite thing about being a parent? Watching my son grow everyday and thankful to stay at home to see every bit of it!
Due Date/W+D: Oct. 8th according to an online calculator.Other kiddos/ages: Two boys, 5 and 3Nails/Fails: My 5yo is speech delayed but I am proud of how far he has come with early intervention/speech therapy. My 3yo is FINALLY keeping his underwear dry after many, many loads of laundry and tears of frustration (from me.)Rants/Raves/Dear Diary? My very sweet, loving family is already giving me input on baby names. I’ll file that away into the don’t care part of my brain.Appointments? March 13Questions? Some say 2-3 is the hardest. 1-2 was a doozy for me. Anyone feel like 2-3 was easier? 🤞🏽GTKY: I am constantly humbled by the unconditional love. I often lose my temper and speak angrily to my kids and no matter what they still love me.
Don’t scare me! (Jk, kinda). My first is autistic and had signs from birth, and my second was the nightmare colicky baby you always hear about (milk intolerance and reflux). It can’t get much worse, right? RIGHT??ETA- in names, our families tried that with DS1, and promptly learned I don’t give a —— what they think on names or what names they like. My boys actually share names with uncles 🤷🏼♀️
