Me Me Me

I haven't been writing about me, I've just been making phone posts about Rebecca, and I'm annoyed at myself. But then I have too much to keep up with. But, my life is not 100% Rebecca. Only, like, 95%. And she's still asleep, so this will have to be short. I've been accumulating these thoughts up for months. (Also, I'm still not really keeping up with LJ, but I did just join Facebook...)

1) I'm pregnant again, due in August.
2) The nausea and general I-feel-like-crap was much worse this time. I couldn't cook anything for a month, feeding a 2-yr was really hard, and I mostly just wanted to lie on the couch the whole time. But that's over now.
3) I'm getting many more food cravings this time. Cayenne pepper, curry, things that are spicy in general, salad (Mwahahahaha), red wine (which I'm not drinking), and a couple of hamburgers. I tried other proteins, but when that didn't do it I decided not to stress out about being a vegetarian during my pregnancy. Whatever.
4) Rebecca likes sardines. I discovered that while sardines on crackers have always been good, that sardines on peanut butter or cream cheese crackers are awesome.
5) Blueberries in macaroni and cheese are yummy while the blueberries are cold and the macaroni and cheese is hot, and becomes just weird when everything is a homogeneous temperature. I can't remember any of the other weird food combinations I've eaten.
6) Rebecca is finally weaning herself, and my milk supply is drying up. I cried. She may or may not start again when the baby is born, either one is okay with me. (I think she's going to be really good at sharing, she really wants a baby to take care of, she gives her crib to her friends little brother whenever he comes over in the evening for babysitting.)

That might be it, now I can use that badly needed brain space for something else.

Thanks! :-)

Congratulations on the impending baby! :)

Re: blueberries in mac & cheese -- that actually sounds really good. I put dried blueberries in cornbread recently, which turned out to be delicious ... maybe dried would circumvent the homogeneous temperature issue?

Yah, that would make them different textures, which would be good. Once they were the same temperature you couldn't really tell them apart enough, which whas the odd part.

I have heard many mom's say that they felt sad when the kiddos got weaned (for whichever reason), I am sure you already know that, but sometimes it's just good to hear others feel the same way.

Yep, it's all the oxytocins. I like them drugs.

That's a lot of yay for one post. :) I guess we now have a deadline for when we need to get the swing back to you. :)

Hahahha, no rush. Our housemate's due first actually, beginning of May, but I think she can borrow her brother's swing.

We are done with it and it is living in the garage so it isn't any trouble at all. :)

I'm thrilled that your housemate will be having a baby too! That's going to be really neat-o. I don't know anyone (well, other than my weird neighbor) who has a kid close to Shanna's age. I think it would be really nice to be parenting the same aged kids with a friend. And you two can cross nurse. :) Uhm, if you want to and it doesn't freak you out. I'm fascinated by it for some reason. I think that is why I wish I had friends with same age kids.

Well that was off-topic. heh

It interested me when Rebecca was younger. I'm not sure when I stopped wanting to nurse my friends babies, but it did at some point... I may start again presumably.

It was nice to have a friend with a similar age child last time, it was a lot of work building up a peer group for Rebecca. Probably one of the most difficult things for me.

So I guess I should figure out how to get that thing back then.

Whoopie! And congrats to Pam too.

Now you know why I cried when you went away to college...part of the Motherhood package deal.

I always knew.

Sardines and peanut butter? My tongue just tried to hide in the bottom of my mouth. I pass my share to Rebecca.
Mar. 22nd, 2009 03:26 am (UTC)
Thanks. :-)

And what are you, some kind of tinned fish hater? :-P

Congratulations on being pregnant again!
