You never think it will be you

I kept reading and people kept telling me about when their babies would first sleep through the night.
They'd freak out and wake up to see if the baby was ok, and wonder if the baby was sick or something.

Zoe didn't sleep through the night but she did sleep a lot longer than normal last night and YEP.... I was one of those parents.
She went to sleep at around 9:30. She didn't wake up until 4. I woke up at about 3 b/c I heard her kind of huffing like she does when she's getting frustrated.
When she didn't wake up from doing that, of course worry-mode kicked in lol.

Sigh... oh well.. I'm sure there will be many many many more worry moments like that in her life.

Poor lil Zoe does have a rash though. It's on her lower cheek all the way around to her neck. :(
Gonna keep the area clean and as dry as possible and hope it clears up. Doesn't seem to bothering her so thank goodness for that.

My nips aren't as tender any longer and I'm not sure why. Maybe it was the long rest from pumping last night. The last time I pumped was at 8:30 or 9, and I didn't pump again until I woke up at 3. Then I didn't wake until 8 this morning so *shrugs* Maybe it helped to not pump for a little bit to let them heal.
Hopefully they won't get sore again. Frickin sucks when they're all tender.

Not sure what is going on with my body right now, but I am HUNGRY. I just want to eat and eat and eat until I'm nauseated. :(
I'm def not thirsty b/c I've been drinking more than usual....
We're going back to a better diet this coming week. I know doing that will cause me to get hungry as well, but with less junk in the house, at least I'll be stuffing my face with healthy foods.
I had to have gained at least 3lbs this week.... I can tell my stomach is already bigger than it was before. BLEH! Not for long though....
*jiggles stomach* Thou shall not be jiggly for much longer!!!

And on some random notes.... saw Cabin in the Woods a few days ago. OMG... one of the best horror movies I've seen in a VERY long time. So original, interesting and just... I dunno... AWESOME!! I loved it!

Another random bit of info.... I've been feeling like I've had a bat in the cave (booger on the edge of my nose) for about a week now. I'd swipe my hand or kleenex or whatever on my nose but would still feel it.
I finally looked in the mirror yesterday and it was one of those weird thin clear hairs growing out of my nose!!! I pulled it out and that thing was almost an inch long! Holy crap and ew! lol

And finally... there's a toad boneyard where our dryer vent is.
The idiots that built this house put the dryer vent below ground level. We had to get them to dig it out and create a hole so ya know.. the dryer could vent....
Anyway... there's a metal barrier to keep the earth from filling back in. It's about a foot or so deep. I just noticed today that there are numerous mummified toads and toad bones down there.
It just makes me feel so bad that they got stuck down there and died most likely very slow deaths :(

The first time DD slept for a long stretch I was a nervous wreck. It definitely catches you off guard...lol
