I weigh 172
Baby's heart rate was 133 which is on the lower end for my babies. The midwife said it could be just because the baby was sleeping.
The beginning of the week has been good, especially Monday and Tuesday. I've been using Zantac with success this week. I'll probably switch to Protonix next week.
Back on Protonix I seem to be able to eat a bit more?
I really crave hot sauce (with my homemade burritos).
I'm spitting regularly again.
I don’t want the chicken soup like I did for the last two weeks, even though I just made a fresh batch.
Saturday, May 2, 2015
The beginning of this week was really awful as my body got sort of messed up between all the different acid meds j was taking. Ultimately, Betaine made things worse. I switched back to Zantac and I've been fine now that it kicked in.
I've started getting really tired. I haven't been exhausted until this point.
I think I feel the baby at least 1x a day.
Baby Bear colored all over the glass door. I found him and scolded him and showed him where the washcloths were and how to wash it. Now, he keeps going back to the drawer, grabbing a new washcloth, and washing windows. He blesses my heart!
When your one year old charges at you yelling, "KISSES! KISSES!" you give him kisses.
Baby Bear: UP! I want up!
Me: Hold on.
Baby Bear: I cryin'!
Bunny's watching a Tinkerbell movie and Baby Bear comes in and says, "Peek-a-boo, Tinkerbell. I see you!"
Me: It's time for bed, Asher. Kiss for Bunny... Kiss for Mommy...
Asher: Grandma. Kiss. Grandma kiss?
He says "keekin" and "teetos" for chicken and potatoes.
He likes to push Bunny's shopping cart and stroller around.
He discovered the sandbox and could probably spend hours there.
We spend so much time outside with me being nauseated that he has a little farmers tan.
He likes to swing on the swing with his "mickah mouse" blanket.
He likes rocks. He puts them in a big plastic plant pot we have outside.
He loves bicycles. Bunny's push tricycle is his favorite and he love s to watch her ride hers.
He really likes riding in the wagon for walks.
He regularly announces: "I did it!!"
He has a real grumpy streak--especially when he is tired.
When he wants something he can't have or when we don't understand what he wants, he very purposefully throws himself on the floor for a dramatic tantrum.
He has anger management issues. Normally he is very sweet and easy going and compliant but when he is angry he pushes and hits and throws things. He routinely hits his sister when she annoys him.
It's funny listening to him practice stringing sentences together. He's in the crib saying, "I drank...awater...mom. Yeah. I drank...awater." In the mornings if we don't come get him quickly enough he says, "Daddy, I poop. I pooped!"
Bear doesn't necessarily have a normal nap routine. With a different schedule each day, some days he gets one nap in the morning, or afternoon, and some days he ends up with two naps. Today, he took a nap in the morning which generally means he might need one in the evening. This morning he had one nap. When, I got home and I put him in the bed after a little bit of playing and he was obviously not tired. He came out and played with play dough while I cleaned up the house. He told me he was poopy, I changed him and asked him if he wanted a nap. He must have thought I asked him if he'd already napped because he says, "Yes! I did it!" Then, I put him in the crib and he realized what I really meant. Poor little guy. Come summer, I hope to get him on a nice, normal routine. He's going to have to wait another month and a half.
"I (want) coffee? I (want) coffee? More coffee?" -Bear
First, Baby Bear found a clothespin and wandered around the house pinching it while hollering, "Shark! Shark!"
Later, he came up to me and said, "I poopy. Oh goodness."
Now that he can finally tell me some of what's on his mind, I'm discovering my son is actually quite funny!
Bear: Bunny sleep?
Me: Yeah, she's still sleeping.
Bear: I'll get it, Bunny. (He proceeds to walk into her room) (C)'mon, 'mon, Bunny, Bunny. Up, up!
Bear used two sometimes three words together now--especially for common phrases that he hears like "I got it."
He's helpful and sweet.
He says the ends of his words now, nur is now nurse, for instance.
He is a monster when you give him chocolate. It's all he can think about!
He understood the concept of gathering eggs but he and all the kids in his age group were really slow about it. It was very cute.
He did not like the tractor pulled barrels at my school's big fair fundraiser! His sister held him and she said he cried the whole time. Poor buddy!
He loves helping Daddy and doing whatever Daddy is doing.
Play dough is the big thing lately. He (and his sister) are obsessed with it.
