Random Stuff

Not much going on around here...still P-34 weeks and counting. I've been feeling very tired lately, but I guess that comes with the territory. Sleeping is a little bit of a challenge. I really can't find a comfortable position and I go to the bathroom like every 45 minutes! Not fun at all. This past weekend, 2 people looked at me and said I was ready to pop. Gee thanks, guys. I thought I was looking pretty good--as of last check up my weight gain is on the low side-12 pounds. But I guess my stomach is just huge-one of those in your face type thing. I feel much bigger than when I was P with B, but I think a part of this is that I just really can't remember how huge I was back then.
B's been having problems with pooping lately. He is chronically constipated. Yes, fun stuff. A few weeks ago I called the doctor b/c I just felt so bad for him. When he is trying to poop, and it is right there just trying to come up, he cries and cries b/c he can't push it out. Sorry for TMI. And he refuses to walk or do anything--all he wants is for Mama to hold him. Sometimes he can manage to push it out on his own-but this is after lots of crying and grunting and pushing. But we've had times where I had to put a suppository up there. I feel so bad every time I do it-but it works. After a few minutes he manages to get a bowel movement. I feel so bad for the little guy. I've tried everything, we've been loading him up with fiber and it works for a few days then then eventually he is back to being constipated. He hardly drinks milk as it is-he really doesn't like it-we are lucky if he will drink 10 oz a day! I talked to my doctor about this, since the minimum they want to see is 15 oz-but since he is always constipated, she said that if he gets 12 oz a day it should be sufficient. We don't even get to 12 oz, but I try not to worry about it since I know milk doesn't help his situation. I just hope he outgrows this.
B turns 20 months tomorrow. I can't believe it! He is so much more vocal now-although half the time we have no idea what he is saying. He tries to imitate every thing you say--he has a few words like baby, car, park, sit teeth etc-but most of the time he can only say 1 syllable. He will say "sh for shoes or ma for monkey". It is very cute. At the same time we are entering the world of terrible twos! The little guy thinks that he rules the world and if he doesn't get his way we get lots and lots of crying and whining. We have some really bad days sometimes, where we just fight with him all day long. S's wants to push his bedtime to 8 pm vs. 7:30 pm so that he can get more time to play with him after work, but 2 weeks ago, after spending the entire day with B- S looked at me and said "sorry for suggesting a later bedtime, now I realize it's not if he can stay up that late, but it's more for you-after a full day of this I can see why that half hour is critical to keep your sanity!" Amen!
I don't think I've ever mentioned our landlord on this blog-she is this really sweet 80 year old lady. Sometimes when I call her I am not sure if she is all together there or if she remembers our conversation. I called her last week about an issue with our bathroom. We started talking and she asked me how I was feeling. I said I was okay. She said she was hoping that I was having a girl and I told her we were having a boy--her response was "oh don't worry dear, they can change their mind later!!" I was cracking up! The funny thing was that she said this 2x without even blinking. I told S and we just both started laughing-at least she is very open minded!!
I guess this is all for now. I am getting a massage tomorrow-which I am excited about. I still have to purchase a stroller--boo hoo. I am so torn about which one to buy and it's not like they will come out with the perfect double stroller in the next month or so! I should just go ahead and bite the bullet. If this baby decides to pull a B, we might be going into labor in less than 2 weeks!! I am hoping and praying that this is not the case. I have an appointment on Thursday and I am hopeful that the cervix is still nice and long! Cross your fingers!

34 weeks--woo! Hope this one hangs on for MUCH more than 2 weeks (but not too long!).

and thanks for the FB reassurance. I didn't cry but almost did when I said bye and walked out and heard BG saying "Mommy? Mommy! MOMMY!"

"They can still change their mind later!" That cracks me up and can mean so many different things. I love it.

Hope you get some sleep and enjoy your massage.

The Phil & Teds Sport is a wonderful double stroller option. I love mine!!

You can look on ebay and get brand new for even less.

The whole constipation thing is not fun. I can't imagine how he must feel.

Wow it won't be long now!

We have issues with BM's in our house, I Ped has our boy on Mineral Oil. It's the only thing that helps. It's not fun to watch them grunt and grunt. Poor little fella. :(

Good luck with the sleeping!
