major randomness

  • throwing up
    • Coen's been throwing up since Wednesday night.  At first it was just projectile then off and on from about 7pm until the next morning (Thursday) at 11am.  At about 4am on Thursday morning, I called the dr and they said to feed him 1 ounce of milk every hour and just pump everything and feed him through a bottle.  That if it got worse or turned green or wasn't wetting a diaper, I needed to bring him in.  Then about 5pm on Thursday, it was like he threw up everything from 11am on and it turned green toward the end.  I called the dr. again and they said to go to the ER.  They pumped him full of pedialyte (6oz in about 2 hours) and we were sent home.  Since then he was on pedialyte all day Friday and returned to nursing on Friday night.  He did great except in the night time.  I don't know if it's how he's laying or what but the last three days have been great and the nights have been miserable.
  • lack of sleep
    • Speaking of miserable nights.  My 6 month old is sleeping like a newborn and it's beginning to kill me.  We go through the same routine at night, he goes to bed (in his bed) great, but anywhere from 10pm to 1am, he gets up and is starving.  I'll feed him, put him back down and then about 2 to 3 hours later he's up again.  It's drying me insane, but I'm trying to just roll with it.  I dream of an 8 hour night of sleep, but I honestly cannot remember what that feels like. 
    • Because of this, I'd love to have a day where I could be off work, but still send Coen to the sitter.  I haven't done that but I'm thinking about it.  I say that and then I think about the fact that I'd still have to pump while I'd be off.  Ugh, would make it almost not worth it.
  • purging
    • I'm having this increasing need to purge.  I don't purge.  In fact, my husband (in a joking manner) would call me a pack rat or a hoarder.  I'm not, but I suppose I could be.  I like to collect, I like to keep little things because of the memory they have and what not.  But lately, I'd had a need to purge, I just don't know where to start.
    • How do you do it at your house?  Do you keep things with memorable value?  Concert tickets, programs, photos?
    • Do you have a system for going through and donating things in your house?  Do you say, " if i haven't looked for you, touched you or needed you in a year, then goodbye"?  What do you do? 
    • I need motivation.  I need suggestions.  Help?
  • william
    • We're finding William a new home.  We have come to an agreement and I believe that I'd found him a better home than we could ever give to him and I'm grateful.  More on this after we have confirmation.
  • dentist
    • I'm almost 30 years old, I spent the last year of my life pregnant and eating a lot of sweets.  Now I have 1.5 cavities.  Gross.  My dentist said that I could blame it on my pregnancy and, believe me, I am.  I go today to get them both worked on.  I'm not looking forward to it, but I'm doing it because that's what you're supposed to do.  I couldn't imagine if I didn't go to the dentist every 6 months!  I would've been in bigger trouble than I am in these last 6 months.  Oh well.  :(
Seriously, tell me how your purge (see above)!

So sorry that Coen's been sick, that sounds just awful! I hope he's on the mend though and the sleep routine gets back to normal. I don't feel like I'm a packrat, but I'll find things down the road and wonder why in the world I held onto it. Wish I had ideas for you on that one. I had a cavity too when I went to the dentist after I had Chloe! I like your idea of blaming it on pregnancy. :)

I'm a packrat by nature, so when we purge it's usually sporadically. Like yesterday we were going through some boxes to get our basement cleaned up and I was apparently in the mood to purge and things went to the trash pile that never would have in the past. Unfortunately, though, I don't have a plan.

I totally feel you on the "taking a day but it isn't worth it if you have to pump". Could you nurse Coen before sending him to the sitter and then get him before he'd want to nurse at the end of the day? You'd get a shorter day to yourself, but have to pump less. I think I did that one time while I was pumping and it wasn't *so* bad. Plus then I just pumped while I was watching TV at some point.

Awe, I'm sorry Coen was/is so sick. That is the worst. And sleep deprivation...ugh. I'm right there with you. I miss sleep.

Hope everything gets back to normal for you soon!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
