Bullet Point Updates

  • The Boy is still doing pretty good with the potty training. He had two accidents at school yesterday and three successes (he isn't home yet today). I think the accidents are more because they aren't checking with him often to see if he has to go and he isn't at the point of telling people yet.
  • We still seem to be boycotting the pooping in the potty. He didn't poop at all yesterday and I think if it happened today it probably happened in his pull up during nap time. Hopefully we can work on this and make it happen soon.
  • My clogged milk duct seems to FINALLY be healed. Thankfully it never turned into mastitis but it was horribly painful and a royal pain in the ass. I had to get up and pump every couple of hours for several days in a row and always heat the boob prior to feeding and pumping and also massage the hell out of it before and after each feeding. My boob is still really sore and I don't think the supply has returned to what it was before but the mass is gone and so is most of the pain.
  • When I went to the doctor for my clogged milk duct my blood pressure was really high again. Something about that office, I swear. It was so high that my doctor called me at home later and told me she was personally making me an appointment at a specialist and all I had to do was show up.
  • I showed up at said appointment with the specialist this morning to go in and have my blood pressure taken. It was 113/82. Ummm yeah...why are we here again?
  • Specialist proceeded to treat me anyway and wants me to take my pressure at home and make an average and also sent me to the lab for all sorts of blood tests. I have to go back in three weeks.
  • Specialist appointment and lab time totaled over three hours. Three hours where I really needed to be billing clients instead of "wasting time" at a doctors office. Now I have to find sometime to make that up. No clue when or where that's going to happen.
  • Baby girl is pretty consistently sleeping 8 to 8 1/2 hours at night. Usually from around 8:30pm until around 5:00am. When she wakes up at 5:00 she nurses and goes right back to sleep until at least 8:00. She is a rock star.
  • I am so unbelievably tired that I am not sure how I manage to stay upright all day long.
  • I am happy. Very, very happy. Life is good.
