I think this forum is my new home!
Yesterday, I felt strange all day. I only had a tiny bit of nausea, but I felt lightheaded and slightly dizzy all day, like I was walking around with a perpetual buzz. This lasted off and on from 10 am to 6 pm. I was worried, since I am alone with Sarah now (DH is traveling) and I kept worrying I was going to fall down the stairs or faint and then who would take care of Sarah? I called the OB and the %^&* nurse is like "oh honey, this is totally normal in pregnancy, blah, blah, but I'll have the doctor call." Of course no one called, so I am REALLY peeved about that. I spend my night perusing the web and all my pregnancy books and self-diagnose myself with either anemia or low blood pressure.
So Sarah, who usually sleeps until 7:30 - 8 has been waking at 6:30 the last couple days and it's been killing me! So at about 5 am I hear her in the monitor and I can't believe it! She doesn't go back to sleep, so I go in there, try to lay her down and she screams and screams. I pick her up to comfort her, and I'm like "What's that smell?" So she had a HUGE poop diaper and it was really disgusting. And to make it even better, the diaper pail was disassembled since I washed diapers last night and was too lazy to re-assemble it. I thought I would just re-assemble it in the morning. As I have the first poop filled wipe in my hand, I realize I have nowhere to put it. So I just put it in the pail with no liner along with the dirty diaper and I will deal with it today when she wakes again.
So I change her diaper, lay her down and she goes right back to sleep. But me? No, I'm up until 6. And then around 6:30 my $%*#% dog starts barking at the *&*# foxes that live in the woods next to my subdivision. I finally get the dog to stop barking. Then at 7:30 my %^%&^% cats start scratching at the bedroom door to get fed, which makes the %^&%& dog start whining to go out.
Ugh. I hate my pets this morning. I have the remains of a disgusting dirty diaper to deal with when Sarah wakes up. I need some caffeeine coffee.
