nah... just a tease!
I confess picking out names, while fun, is hard work
I confess we've already started talking baby names and aren't pregnant with #2 yet! LOL
You all are going to have so much fun!!! Can't wait to see pics!

I confess I'm going to crash and burn if I don't get more sleep. Last night I think I slept from 10p-1am and from 4:30-5:30am. My body seems to be all achey for no apparent reason. I can't even blame lack of sleep on Liam last night - there wasn't a peep out of him till 3 am, we nursed, and he was out again by 3:20 am and woke up at 6:45 am.
From 1 to 3, did you roll around in bed? Get up? Try to read something? Have you tried anything (Tylenol PM, Unisom, natural supplements, warm milk)? Relaxation techniques?
I've been an insomniac for my entire adult life. The only thing that's been a 100% cure is, surprisingly, pregnancy.
Have fun in Vegas guys!!!
How about YOU don't get into too much trouble.
I confess I got signed off by my specialist and was supposed to get cleared by employee health yesterday and start back to work today after being off since May 29th. And then I almost passed out at my employee health appt. when they insisted I couldn't sit down to fill out the forms and I kept telling them I needed to sit down and I almost collapsed. So the doctor refused to clear me to return to work until my dizziness and irregular heartbeat were evaluated. I went to my primary doctor on the way home, and she set me up to see an ENT (to rule out inner ear problems) and to have my heart checked out. So I'm off work until next week.
And I confess dh and I both knew our babies' birthday was coming up soon, but didn't realize it was this coming Sunday. My mom had to remind us. We didn't have anything planned, and my mom wants me to have a dinner party.
And I think Erin and Cass should have a blast in Vegas!
Lydia, I hope you feel better soon.
I confess I don't know what my dad said to MIL while he was here, but whatever it was - it was a load of BS.
MIL is under the impression that ALL DH and I do all day is RELAX around the house, and that my parents must have given us a wad of cash before they left in order for us to be able to do that, and just go "gallivanting" around the city whenever we want....
DH and I job search all day - Im usually on APA as well, but I am looking for jobs at the same time... and we have been going and going since last friday with Audrianna's birthday stuff... then this week we had to go to sMIL's pre-op appointment, my ultrasound, and Audrianna's dr. appointment. This afternoon DH has a meeting with his Job Counselor.
I confess I am SICK and TIRED of them making it seem like we aren't trying to find a job... and that no one recognizes the driver job DH got because it hasn't started yet....
Not doing tylenol PM/unisom as the ingredients CAN affect milk supply and I've worked to hard to keep producing for my little man. I have taken Hyland's Calm Forte - and find that if I take 3 at a time it does help. But the last time I did that (Tuesday night?) Liam was up and restless for almost 2 hours. I took 2 of them last night about 3:30 after nursing, but it was an hour before I got to sleep. Milk should only be consumed warm if it has chocolate in it - otherwise it must be VERY cold (sometimes with icecubes).
ETA: Months ago I tried camomile tea, with no noticable affect.
And I never got to experience the perpetual napping that is pregnancy. I had a horrid cold with coughing from 2-4 months and that's when PSD kicked in with a vengence and it was hard to sleep anywhere.

Have a safe flight and a wonderful vacation, Rin and Cass!
Lydia, I truly wish I could do something to make you feel better. This has been going on a bit too long
Errr, I drove by a house that appeared to be getting emptied out and being dumpstered and saw a cute little dump truck and asked if I could have it. So they're getting a birthday present, I just need to wash it. They also have their personalized birthday book plus everything my mom has been doing.
I'm just trying to pin down how many people will be coming to this purported dinner party, to see if I can host it here or if I'll have to move it to my mom's house. Then I'll be able to make more plans.
I confess I have been thinking about having another baby, despite the fact that dh & I essentially decided we wouldn't have any more. I've been looking at cute babies and feeling wistful. I've been asking C & R if they want a baby to play with. I'm actually trying to decide if I want to restart my birth control pills this week.
Dh is on the same side of the fence as I am, that is, we both felt like it would probably be a good idea to stop for practical reasons but we both like children (especially our children) and can't stop imagining what another one would be like.
And this would take some definite planning because obviously I'm not in the best health right now and I'm taking meds that are not compatible, so it would be at least several months before I could conceive of conceiving.
It's so tempting to start temping, though.

Aw, Lydia; I hope you do have another baby. You're obviously such a good momma to the 2 you've already got-you need another, definitely! I need to stop trying to think of baby names since we aren't ttc til later this year...it's just exciting/fun to think about, though.
I think it went pretty well, but I did put on my application that I am pregnant because it asked if there would be any reason for me to need more than 1 day off work within the next 6 months.
