Not so bad

Oren had his 4m checkup on Thursday... more like 5m but whatever.
He weighed in at 16.5lbs and I can't remember height off top of my head. Weight was 60th percentile and height was 40th... so he's a little butterball. Well.. his legs are :P heh
He took his shots pretty well. Only cried for maybe 30sec if that.

His sleep has been pretty consistent these last few days. Wakes up about 2-3 times at night. Not ideal by any means, but it's better than him waking every hour.
He's rolling over like crazy. He can roll from stomach to back, but I think he gets frustrated that he can't move yet.. or he forgets that he can roll lol.
DH and I both think he's going to be crawling/walking way before Zoe did.

Zoe is doing well. We just got her back. She spent the night with her granny and aunt. She loves it over there. Probably b/c they spoil her rotten.... ROTTEN and let her stay up until the buttcrack of dawn.
Her potty skills are still about what they were before. Few accidents and sometimes have to remind her to go sit on the potty before an accident happens.

DH and I decided we're doing the Disney Princess theme for her birthday. Nothing huge. We're not getting her a costume or anything....although that would be cute. But we did get her a tiara to wear and will be getting her a princess cake, decorations etc. She's gonna love it. :)
Can't remember if I mentioned it or not, but we decided to just throw it at our house. DH procrastinated too long to reserve anything and I'm just happy we're having it indoors in AC lol. I'll have a lot of cleaning to do, but meh...that's ok :)

I'm ok. I got nauseous and threw up yesterday. Thought it was from metformin reacting to the bad dinner I had on Friday, but I think it was just some 24hr stomach bug. I felt awful the entire day and had waves of nausea all day long.
Thankfully feeling better today though.

DH and I are on our last week of P90 A (the first 30 days). So proud of us :)

As for possibly pregnancy.... obviously don't have any news about that yet. Will have to wait and see. DH and I have been talking about it and he actually doesn't seem all that against having another baby. Surprise the heck out of me. I guess I shouldn't be shocked with how willing he was to DTD without protection lol.
We've just been talking about how we'd have to trade in the car for probably a minivan. Sad but the thought of getting a minivan actually excites me ROFL.
And how if I do end up pregnant, I'd pretty much be his mom. Meaning... his mom has 3 kids and we'd have 3 kids spaced out almost exactly like she did. And If we had another girl? Yeah... same.

He asked me if I wanted another one. I do and mentioned how I wanted them spaced a little more, but he told me that if we were to have another, now would be the time to do it while we're still... youngish lol. He just doesn't want to be 40 having a baby. I reminded him a lot of people are having kids later in life, but he just doesn't want that. I understand.
Honestly though... it could go either way for me at this point. I'd be thrilled to have another, but if it never happened... I'd be ok with that too. Of course I would always wonder about another.
Anywho... we'll see what happens :)

Ruh Roh Shaggy!

So... I'm probably going to be buying some pregnancy tests in the next couple of weeks if my period doesn't start.

I noticed some CM on the tp a couple of days ago and warned DH when he was getting frisky. So we put it off for a couple of days and had sex last night.
Thing is.... I noticed EWCM yesterday that I told DH about when he was getting frisky again and well... we did it anyway /facepalm.
That's not to say we're definitely going to get pregnant by any means, but yeah... there's a possibility.
If I don't end up pregnant... we really need to be more careful until we are ready to try again (if that happens).
I just think both of us threw caution to the wind b/c it took so long to have Zoe and Oren so we're not expecting anything to happen.
We'll see though.
The thought of having another baby right now makes me want to sob from exhaustion LOL... but I'd be lying if I said it also wasn't a nice thought too. I do really want another and if it happens sooner than we were hoping.. then that's what was supposed to happen and we'll be happy and get through it as best we can :)
Man... we'd have to trade in one of the cars for something that could fit 3 carseats.... and figure out where the heck the baby's room was going to be. We have a dining room, but my big 125g tank is in it and a family room, but we have a ton of exercise stuff in that one....
Anyway... getting ahead of myself.
If I am fertile and I do ovulate... then in 10 days give or take.. AF should be showing. So next Saturday if I ovulate today. If nothing by the 10th... I'll go buy some tests.

Speaking of pregnancy... SiL's is going great and I'm so happy for her!! She had a NT scan done since she is older and had the m/c before and everything looked great. YAY! Everyone says they think she's gonna have a boy. Yeah... everyone said that for Zoe too lol.
Going by the heart rate they first saw, if you believe in old wives tales.. it's a girl.
They're finding out the gender in early Sept I think. :)
Just so happy for her and her husband. They're going to make excellent nerdy parents :D hehe
____

OOOOOOOO we went to Kohl's on Saturday to look for a Birthday Girl shirt for Zoe. They didn't have any, but we can't resist looking through their clearance racks for great deals. And BOY did they have some good ones. Lots of $1-3 stuff that we got for Zoe. A lot of it too big, but she'll grow in to them obviously.
Well as I was looking... she started to whine saying "Wear Anna."
I didn't know what she was talking about until I saw the wall of PJs/nightgowns. They had one that looked like Anna's (from Frozen) costume. I got DH to get it down along with another frozen gown. We weren't sure on what the prices would be so I took them to a price check..... the Anna one came up as 2.80.... the other one as 3.00.
Uhm... What???? Disney stuff is NEVER on clearance for that cheap at Kohls!!
I rescanned them a few more times and yep... every time they both came up those prices.
So we found an employee to check the prices for us and yep... they rang up for that and she put the 90% off sticker on them.
WOOOO!! I'm sure it was probably an error, but we made sure to check and still got the deal and Zoe got her some new PJ gowns :D
____

Which reminds me... holy crap.... Zoe's birthday is next Saturday! Where the hell has the time gone??
I knew her birthday was coming up soon, just didn't realize it was this soon lol.
She's not getting any toys from us. Oh wait no.. that's wrong. We already bought her a lot of fake plastic food for her kitchen. Other than that... no toys.
We bought her a full length mirror and need to get a few more things.
I want to get her a stepping stool for the bathroom and I think we were talking about getting her a tricycle, but that may wait until Christmas. Need to sit DH down and figure things out and figure out where the heck we're throwing her party. Think he still wants to do it at the local state park. I just worry b/c it could rain and it's definitely going to be SUPER hot, but DH is determined to have it somewhere other than our nice AC'd house :\

Anywho.. Oren is getting fussy!... Gotta put him down for a nap :D

I need a schedule

Ok, I need specific days to post on so I can remember to post. Maybe Mondays and Fridays.
We'll see.

Anyway... I'm on week 3 of exercising and it's going good so far. Weighed myself today and I'm a 204. That's an 8lb loss. Weigh in day is friday though so we'll see what it is officially then :)

Potty training has been going ok. Been some accidents... a really gross poo one the other day though. Zoe was sitting on the recliner and suddenly she starts whining as she's climbing down and sure enough... there's a smooshed turd where she was sitting and then another smooshed one where she was sliding off the chair. BLEH! lol She quickly ran to her potty where she deposited another little turd :P lol
So yeah... we still have to remind her to go and if we don't.. well... pee and poo everywhere.

She keeps messing with her girly bits though. Even with panties on.. her hand is always down there. She's not irritated or anything so I guess it's just curiosity and whatnot? Wish she would stop b/c she's still very orally fixated and puts everything in her mouth. BLEH. I'm sure that was the reason why she got sick for a little bit. She kept putting her hand in her butt. :\

But yeah.. no more hands in the butt, but she still has them all over everything else. Sigh....

Oren is good. He has his 4m appointment on Thusday. It's almost a month late, but it's all they had I guess. He's gonna be getting some shots. Not looking forward to those screams.

We moved him to his room this weekend. I had been putting him in his crib for naps so the transition went pretty well. Just need to get him to sleep through the night.
Last night was a really good night. He only woke up once.... HEAVEN! lol
Hopefully this trend continues.

And yeah... really nothing much else going on. Just the usual stuff :)

So much poo!

Potty training is in full effect.
I started yesterday and there was so much pee.
The first time I asked her if she needed to pee.. right after I asked her, I mean I was still looking at her and hadn't turned away or anything... she peed herself. SIGH.
Then... Zoe had been constipated for a few days so needless to say.. what was in her was BIG and she did not want to push it out b/c it was hurting her.
So I gave her juice mixed with Miralax. She did eventually poop... right in her diaper. And she was sharting ALL day. Skid marks all over the place. BLEH!
She pooped a few more times in her diaper and peed a few more times all over the floor. But she did eventually, right before bed.. pooped and peed in the potty.
She was so proud of herself too for doing it. She got lots of hugs and high fives for doing it too! :D

This morning so far.. she pooped in her undies not even 5 minutes after I put them on her. No pee yet, but I can feel it coming. She did poop once in the potty too though so that's good :)

She's just so darn stubborn. Ask her if she has to go... "No" 2 seconds later and there's a puddle on the floor -_-
____

Exercise is going well. I'm so out of shape but I'm trying my best. I know the more I do it, the better I'll get. I'm still feeling determined and just done with being this fat.
Unfortunately, weight loss has stalled. Seems to be normal though for those just starting so I'm not worried about it. I know the scale will start moving again.
SO darn close to the 100's!

I did start spotting yesterday. Didn't last long and wasn't a lot but not really sure what that was about. Also got a dull headache that lasted throughout the day and would not go away after taking Tylenol. Had to take an ibuprofen as well before it finally subsided.
Must be something hormonal going on. What? I have no flippin clue.
____

Oren's night time sleep is still terrible. I think he's ready to come out of his swaddle. He's been struggling with it for a while. Going to try to keep him unswaddled tonight. Will probably be rough for the next few days but pfft, it's been rough the last couple of weeks so not really a big change.
He's napping in his crib right now all sprawled out and comfy.

Feels like I wanted to mention something else but... shrugs...

Sorry sorry!

GAH! I keep forgetting to post here. I'm posting on the blog option over at sparkpeople and just completely forget to do it here too.

Things have been pretty good.

Diet has been going well. I do end up craving sweets still, but since I'm not being super strict.. just watching portions... it hasn't been too bad.
What that means is that, if I want a cookie, I'm having a cookie. I'm just not going to eat a bazillion of them like I would have before.

I started exercising yesterday finally. After looking in to it, DH agreed to ordering the new P90 program. It's basically a much needed updated version of the original one that we have. And let me say... it's A LOT harder too.

I'm still feeling more determined than ever to get this weight off once and for all. My weight is still kind of stuck but I think with the exercise included now.. it will start dropping better along with the inches.

____

We let Zoe go to the beach with MiL and aunt (along w/ 2 of Zoe's cousins).
They're supposed to be coming back today. Must say, it's been nice to have some one on one time with Oren & not having to deal with her toddler drama lol, but I can't wait to see my baby girl.
I'm sure she had a great time.
 ____

Oren is doing well. Looked like he was getting a cold, but it was just a runny nose and some coughing and that was it. He's still having some coughing but I think it might be reflux causing it b/c it only seems to happen after he's eaten.

He's so darn cute!!! He's started trying to grab my mouth :P lol Hurts like hell w/ his raptor claws and him not knowing his own strength so he grips really hard, but it's so cute too. I had his pacifier in my mouth and he was so amused by it and reached for it to put in to his own mouth. Awwwww

He's still going through a bad leap though. Catnapping most of the time during the day and still waking up every 2hrs at night. UGH, I'm so damn tired!
Just gotta keep truckin on though.
____

Period stopped a few days ago. Wasn't really all that heavy. Thank goodness. I think I remember my first period after having Zoe being super heavy.

Just kind of curious what my body is going to do now. Will it start working right... or at least as right as it can... or will it still be all wonky and off. We'll see.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

No doubt about it

All the doubt I had before was gone this morning when I used the bathroom.
This is definitely my period. It's gotten a lot heavier and BOY the bloat feeling down there is flippin terrible.

Oren is definitely going through sleep regression. The first stretch is about 4 hours... and then the rest of the night is every 2-3hrs.
I'm so damn tired :(
If I could just go to sleep when he does at 7-7:30... that would be awesome :P lol
Oren has rolling to his side down... he hasn't rolled to his stomach yet though. Not really worried about that or anything. Zoe took forever to do it and did it very rarely.

We discussed some about Zoe's birthday. We know we want to get her a rug for her room, a mirror, and we saw these cool Star Wars wall lights that we would like to get for her room. DH liked some fake food pack that I found on Amazon so we'll probably get that too.
And yeah... other than that.... *shrugs*
As for where... DH was disappointed that I didn't want to do it at the local park. Dude... seriously.... it's probably going to be 100 out... and if not 100, it sure as heck going to feel that hot. No one, other than the kids, will want to stay out in that kind of weather. If he can come up with a way to keep everyone cool.. then I'm fine doing it outside.

Anyway....  period means that I may actually ovulate which means.... DH better be careful when he wants to get freaky :P

Period? No Period?

I just don't even know anymore so I'm going to say.. period.
This is heavier than spotting but still pretty light. Most makes an appearance when I use the bathroom and is only spotting any other time.
Also, my uterus does feel slightly achy so I'm just going to vote for a light first post partum period.
So... boooo... and woot! too lol. Boo b/c well..it's a period and no one wants that.... but woo! For my body working (maybe) too.
____

Oren is doing well, but he is congested. He's going through some kind of growth spurt too b/c he's waking up more at night now which SUUUUUUUCKS.
I'm so darn tired b/c DH is also sick and snoring like crazy.

He's growing so fast though. Trying to fit his whole fist in to his mouth...playing with toys, smiling, laughing, etc etc.
And BOY is he chunky! I think his next appointment is at the end of the month so we won't know how big he's gotten until then. I just know we need to go up a diaper size. We still have a lot of 1's left that we need to get through lol. Maybe we could just save them and give them to SiL when she has her LO :)
____

We really need to start planning for Zoe's birthday. There are so many things I would like to get her. Just need to shorten that list a bit and pick a couple of things off of it. We're not rich so can't go buying everything lol.
DH is determined to have it somewhere special. It's going to be too damn hot to have it anywhere but indoors somewhere... like home. But he doesn't want to have it here.... no idea why. Really need to just sit down and plan it out already.

The presents though.... I think that's going to be the most difficult to figure out. She just likes so many things. That's a good thing b/c it gives us a lot of choices, but also bad b/c it gives us too many choices heh.
Thinking of maybe playdoh. She loves LOVES playing with it. Get her some along w/ some kind of playdoh gadget. But she always ends up ruining the playdoh by getting it everywhere and not putting it up. Meh... not a huge deal since it's fairly cheap.


Anyway... other than the lack of sleep... things are pretty good here :)
