How are you feeling?: pretty good. my breast tenderness had gone away and now its back and they are itching.....does that mean they are going to grow again?
Rants/Raves: My rant is mostly boring family drama. I am the oldest of three girls and I feel like Im always the mediator between my middle sister and my parents, especially my dad. They are both hot heads. Right now is because my sister and her family (she has five kids, the youngest 2 are 3 month old twins) are renting one of my parents houses. They just bought a house of their own so my parents put theirs up for sale. They are only allowing the house to show for one day a week as to inconvenience my sister as little as possible while she is trying to pack, but during that day, showings are like 5-8 hours of the day. Anyway my sister went off on my mom on how much it was inconveniencing her, my mom got upset and was crying and then to spite her scheduled even more showings, and here I am with both venting to me trying to get each one to see the others side. Im too tired for this lol.
My seven year old nephew taking care of his 3 month old siblings. He's so good with them and you can tell loves them so much. He always wants to hold them and help feed them. He's going to be a great cousin to our little one.

Rants/Raves: my husband had was was supposed to be an outpatient, minor surgery that he would fully recover from in a day or two. He had an incredibly rare complication and ended up spending two nights in the hospital. He was released today, but is in too much pain to even stand upright. He’s kind of crab walking around the house when he absolutely has to get up. It’s awful. I feel so bad for him, and it’s absolutely terrible timing.
GTKY: What is the most heartwarming thing you’ve ever seen? My girls snuggling or playing together. Every time. It’s just the best.

Rants/Raves: TW not locating a heartbeat: at my doctors appointment last week (16 weeks) midwife could not find the heartbeat on the Doppler. She was trying to convince me that it’s normal to not be found at 16 weeks (4th baby- all my others were found in seconds). She said it was probably the babies position etc. whatever. They pulled in the ultrasound to see if they found find it. She couldn’t. I asked her if I could just drink some cold water and walk around to get the baby to move positions and she said she doubt it would help. Anyways she basically sent me home and said I have the options of waiting a week to come in and check again, or her ordering out an ultrasound at a bigger practice for the next day. I honestly was not thinking clearly and obviously was super stressed because this is never happened to me before and so I scheduled the appointment and left. I got to the car and it all suddenly hit me what happened. I called DH freaking out and then called The Midwife back and told her I needed that ultrasound. They scheduled it then the following morning and everything was fine. After knowing baby was OK, I was able to think more clearly and realize all the mistakes that were made during that appointment. I really think the Midwife just wanted me to get out because it was their lunch hour 🙄. I’m still trying to figure out how to handle it at my next appointment.
GTKY: What is the most heartwarming thing you’ve ever seen? Honestly just the love between my kids. I love seeing them care about each other and help one another ❤️
@chartput that’s a relief to hear your mom wasn’t in on the dad plan! Maybe he was kinda joking? I don’t know. Either way, I’m really proud of you and your husband for enacting super healthy boundaries about it!
