    @graceandjoy: congrats momma! He is precious!! It is tough healing from a c-section. I’m still not 100% and it’s been 5 weeks for me.

    Evie and Dex are healthy and growing! My birthday is tomorrow and I told my mom all I wanted was sleep 🤣 so she is coming to watch the babes ALL day tomorrow while I get some shut eye. I couldn’t be more excited!!

    So I’m doing better! Recovery is still hard, BUT I do notice progress everyday so I’m taking solace in that. It just hugely sucks that even when baby doesn’t need me, I can’t do much with the girls but thankfully they have been so sweet and understanding. My 3 year old cannot leave baby alone lol and my 5 year old has been super helpful.

    @graceandjoy: Good to hear mama. It's HARD not getting that uninterrupted rest time, just take what you can get!

    @jaguar: I’m probably the most well rested this time! Can’t even do most house chores, this baby is pretty much back to birth weight so I’m not stressed out waking all through the night feeding, I change diapers less often too with each kid (lol), in general just feel like my only problem right now is my csection pain!

    @Jessiemuller88: @helloperidot: awwwww, love these pics, so sweet!!!!

    @graceandjoy: I hope the recovery is going well, so sorry about the pain, ugh...

    I’m. So. Tired. I could literally sleep a whole week of someone let me. 2 babes and a toddler is freaking exhausting.

    @Jessiemuller88: all the coffee and any little naps you can get mama

    Don’t know how I complete missed this being this is #3. But I finally figured out he prob has bad gas and needs some gas drops lol. Hopefully that will help him sleep better at night. There is always a stretch where he can’t sleep and my dummy brain just connected the dots lol

    @periwinklebee: I’m much better thankfully! I think the 1st week was the worst. I’ve gotten much much better! Hopefully OB will clear me to drive by end of next week!

    @Jessiemuller88: ugh, I'm sorry.

    @graceandjoy: Maybe, or could just be typical newborn behavior as they wake up more. My girl was up from 1 to 4 last night.

    I seriously feel like I'm losing my mind. They are installing wood floors in our house and it is SO SO SO LOUD everywhere in the house. Baby won't let me put her down and no way with this noise is she napping anywhere but my arms. I cannot wait for these renovations to be over - this is not a peaceful way to spend maternity leave, ugh.....

    @periwinklebee: how far along is the Reno! I am so sorry it really isn’t fun to spend maternity leave with random people in your house all the time! My little guy sleeps through his sisters screaming yelling crying and touching him 😂

    @graceandjoy: at first she would sleep through anything but I think she’s outgrowing the newborn sleepiness. It’s been so annoying sharing our only functioning bathroom, a powder room that previous owners managed to squeeze a tiny shower into, with a billion sub contractors and all the house guests we’ve had since baby arrived. I’ve been moving the bassinet and a mattress on the floor around the house to sleep in various places to accommodate reno and house guests. We gotta move a bunch of furniture Again tonight because we are tearing up carpeting and refinishing some floors later this week. The renovations started in late August. They were supposed to take 12 weeks ha ha. But it will be done eventually, the contractor says within two weeks, But we’ll see if that actually happens. The baby has been fussy, my toddler was in the ER twice last week, including an ambulance ride from daycare, so I feel like my patience for it is getting shorter.

    @periwinklebee: oh no what happened to him! Hope everything was ok!

    My middle child just got 10 stitches yesterday 😑 I feel ya minus the crazy renovations!

    @graceandjoy: Oh no! Poor girl. I feel like toddlers are way harder than newborns. Daycare thought my son Was having an anaphylactic reaction. But then he had trouble breathing again a couple of days later and we are pretty sure it’s asthma. Of course, I’m worried that all the dust from the renovations can be a trigger, so spend my very limited free time when I’m not feeding the baby vacuuming 😂

    @periwinklebee: 😫 It’s gotta be all the dust; hopefully they will be done!

    So I'm 37+1 today, for the past hour I've felt nauseous with a migraine and am having contractions/BH on and off (nothing consistent). Now my pelvis feels like it's throbbing, I guess is the best way to describe it, with terrible back pain.

    I don't know what labor feels like, but I'm thinking I'm not making it to the 25th of this month. 😭

    @Sams Mom: I think you are close for sure!!

    @graceandjoy: I just walked 2.2 miles through the aquarium and museum today with my son and husband. My back hates me, everything is swollen, migraine, nauseous, and Thursday at my appointment (37+2) he measured me at 42 weeks. 😭

    Less than 9 days to cut time, and I wish something would happen to push it up. I asked my doctor how to get protein in my urine (as a joke after begging to move my c section up without medical reason) and he told me he'd kick my butt. 🙈 So my only other option for earlier is going into labor.

    @Sams Mom: a lot can happen between now and then! I’m cheering for you!

    @Sams Mom: You are almost there- the end of pregnancy with a toddler is the worst, hang in there!!!

    @periwinklebee: coming up on 5 days 😭. I know i'm so close, but this feels like forever and a day away! Contemplating whether or not I want a cervix check tomorrow, not that it will do much for me, but I kind of want to know too.

  29. graceandjoy

    @Sams Mom: you never know! Checks I think are what sent me in labor last 2 times 😂

    @Sams Mom: My ob told me that with second kids, a cervix check tells him nothing, but he would do one anyways since he was already up there to get the strep b culture. I couldn't help being super curious anyways.

    So close!

    @periwinklebee: i did one, 100% closed, no dilation at all... Zero... 😭 38+2 and measuring 43 weeks.

    @paranundrum: i was really hoping to be done today and get a section 😭 and she would have a cool birthday today 02.20.2020

    @graceandjoy: I can hope that it starts something tomorrow, otherwise I need to make it through the weekend so I don't have to have a random partner from his practice.
