Sad little Sunday

Well, it was kind of a rough day all the way around.

Matt woke up feeling really sick to his stomach. Almost like he had the stomach flu or food poisoning or something. We went to Sacrament meeting, but we ended up going home after that. He's feeling a little better tonight and was able to eat a little dinner.

Dean woke up wet once again. He had very, very few incidents of wetting through his diaper at night before he was weaned. I don't know if he's been dry once in the morning since we weaned him. I'm not quite sure what to about it. We've been using Pampers Cruisers size 3, and he's not really close to the weight limit on either end or anything. It's definitely getting old.

Dean has been having serious eating issues the last couple days. He's not really even eaten his favorite foods very well. Most days he drinks a good amount of milk (3-5 cups) with a little tiny bit of chocolate Isagenix in it, so at least he's getting something. Today, however, he didn't want anything. At breakfast he ate maybe 3 bites of his waffle (he normally will eat 1 1/2 waffles!) and drank most of his sippy. At church he ate 2 small bites of a granola bar. At lunch he ate a peach applesauce cup of his own free will but refused the bagle and cream cheese. He dumped out his snack (marshmallow mateys) on the floor and after eating only a couple marshmallows and pieces of cereal. At dinner I forceably fed him about 5 small bites of mashed potatoes in between cries and protests. He did eat a sting cheese on his own but spit out the corn. He didn't want his milk for his afternoon nap or at bed time. Hey, maybe he'll wake up dry tomorrow. And extremely hungry?

I didn't have a horrible day today. That was yesterday.

Last week I got back my test results from my first OB appointment. Surprise, surprise, I had a mild yeast infection (story of my life!). I also had a bacterial infection in my urine, so they put me on the dreaded antibiotics. I HATE HATE HATE taking antibiotics because it always gives me or aggravates yeast infections. It also messes up my digestive system. The pills they put me on are ridiculous, though. I have to take 4 pills a day for 7 days. It is supposed to be on an empty stomach (when does this pregnant lady EVER have an empty stomach?!), taken 1 hour before a meal or 2 hours after. YEAH RIGHT! I've been trying really hard but boy has it messed up everything. I get hungry a lot and I actually have to set the kitchen timer to remember. I can barely remember to take my prenatal and they expect me to take 4 more pills! It has given me digestive problems (my food just sits in my stomach until it makes me feel like puking) and worsened my yeast infection, but I guess I should be grateful that there is something to get rid of the bacterial infection.

Yesterday afternoon I felt exausted, was puking up the lunch that didn't digest, crying because I felt sick, and the wretching made me pee my pants a little! The weakened bladder control during pregnancy is one of the things that gets to me. Talk about a bad afternoon. But today was a little better. I got to take about an hour nap when Dean slept after we came home from church. That was nice. I made a crockpot dinner so I didn't have to do much in the way of food. My house is a wreck from my little rearranger, but I'm closing my eyes to that right now.

Here's to a better tomorrow.

Large S also wakes up wet quite often. For at least two weeks it was every single morning, now it's probably only about once a week. We try and limit the amount of liquids he has a few hours before bed. Large S has also not been eating very much during the last month or so. I was worried at first but stopped worrying when I remembered that Big O did this too. It's just part of getting older I think.

I hope this week goes better for you.

Both my kids had trouble with wet mornings right around that age--somewhere between 1 and 18 months. With my oldest I actually bought her "overnight" diapers and used them only at bedtime for a few months. They seemed to help. And it's frustrating when they go through a no-eating phase, isn't it? Especially when they'd rather throw the food than eat it!

Hope this week starts getting better for you.

I'm pretty honest, but I think you are more honest with your feelings than I and I love it.

I hope for a better tomorrow (and week!) for you.

Ness, thanks.

Lady Steed, I'm glad to know this is all normal. Sometimes you wonder, "am i doing this right???"

Foxyj, I will look for the overnights tomorrow. hopefully it will help. And he has never really thrown his food on the ground until now. He is very into dumping his bowl onto the ground and it really gets to me.

Anna, thanks! I'm sure I share TMI with most people, but I can't seem to stop myself. I figure, "eh. It's life! Why hide it?"

I hope you feel better.

As far as Dean and his lack of eating, I think all kids go through this. Don't stress about it too much, you have other things to fill you with stress right now.

I VT a lady who did some research into a toddler's stomach only being the size of a TBLS. so it fills qucikly. He will eat when he is hungry. I know it is much easier to say you won't worry than to actually do it:) Good luck!

I hope everyone starts feeling better....I ran into the exact same problem with Ranan with the waking up wet. I started putting him in 4's at night (even though he is also under the weight rec.), and problem solved. Ranan also got EXTREMELY picky last week- (only wanted to eat-- didn't drink) but it quickly passed...stick with'll change!

How sad! I'm sorry you had a rotten day, and that your body's not happy with you.

Katelyn has to be in overnight diapers, and sometimes still wets through by the time she wakes up. We often pair a "diaper doubler" (like a maxi pad, so it doesn't create extra bulk that can widen their hips) with the overnight diaper, and then it never leaks. The doublers are way cheap, too.
