I havent noticed a difference. I know 24 months and 2T is different, but DD has some pairs of 4 jeans, and others 4T. The only thing I've noticed is that the 4's are from department stores, and the 4Ts are like carters.View Thread
UGH!!!!! I am getting SO FRUSTRATED with DS! He will NOT leave his diaper on....and it's a pullup! I put a onesie on him and he just pulls at it until he gets it unbuttoned and pulls his pullup down. I cant tape it to him....lol. We are one pullup brand number 2, because I was thinking maybe it was irritating him or something, but nope.
Mommy Rule number 1: Until you are potty trained, you MUST keep a diaper on. (and I'm not PTing him yet. I just got one out of diapers. I'm on hiatus until he's at least 2, no matter his interest level.)View Thread
I also had a tubal during my c/s with DS. After all of the laps, tubal, and c/s's, I still think DH should get a vasectomy. I'm not even kidding. He deserves to go through what I did, especially with the attitude he has.View Thread
I dont have any of the above, but DH will be 30 in dec, and he's been on blood pressure and cholesterol meds for years. He just has to watch what he eats too (no salt). The meds havent had any side effects on him at all. They just help keep his BP and cholesterol down.
It's nothing you did. I dont understand that way of thinking. It's obviously genetics. Why would you place blame on yourself for a health issue like that? It just makes things worse. Why would you not want to take the meds to make yourself better? You need to make yourself better to be a good mother. And you need to make the lifestyle changes to make sure that your DS doesnt follow the same path (high cholesterol).
Good Luck in your journey and keep us updated.View Thread
Ok, so I've not only been unoffically on this board for one year, but now 2. Happy 4th Birthday Alexa!! DS is coming up next in November. She starts full day K Sept 6....her journey through her school aged years is about to begin!
Here's her birth story, if anyone is interested:
I was OVER being pregnant. WAY over it. I was hospitalized starting at either 12 or 14 weeks with contrax, started dilating at 28 wks I think it was, and had kidney stones at 35 weeks. I was on bedrest for like..ever..LOL. At 37 weeks, I started going to the gym and walking on the treadmill. I only sat on an exercise ball (no chairs). It's the middle of August in TX. Not exactly comfortable. After I got back from the gym, I felt like poop! I noticed a tinge of blood, but I bled alot throughout my pg with her. I tried to get comfy in the bed, and felt a pop at about 3am. Got up, went ot the bathroom, and my panties were a little wet, but nothing more than the normal pregnancy stuff. I go lie down on the couch and about 5am, felt another pop...down there. Got up and called the Dr and they told me to come in, and by that time, I was soaking through pads. I woke DH up at 6 and I remember turning on the light and telling him my water broke and he looked up and said "Are you kidding me?", so off to Jack in the box we go (haha, bet you thought I was gonna say hossy). He grabbed bfast on the way to the hossy. We get there and they use a test strip and tell me my water hadnt broken. Well, I've NEVER peed on myself, so what's all of this watery stuff falling out of me? So they tested again, checked my sac and said it was still intact, so it was a slow leak. Put me on max pitocin, I was fingertip dilated. I was in for the long haul. I asked for an epidural as soon as they even said the words "max pitocin"....I'm not stupid...lol. So I sit around and labor for 15 hours....get to about a 1.5 and they say "she's not coming out"....yeah no kidding. So I start bawling. I did NOT want a c-section, but that's where I was headed. I wasnt dilating and they were worried about the risk of infection, so away I went and at 530 pm miss Alexa Jordan was born at 37w1d 6lb 13oz 19.75 in.
(Isnt it funny how you remember it like it was yesterday?)View Thread
