We are having our real wedding November 17 and i'm so frigan stressed with all we have to do. We fired our wedding planner in July so now its all up to us. DH keeps saying theres not so much to do but there is and i'm stressed. Why don't we have everything for the invites that need to be sent out Saturday. Ok rant off.
I love her to death but when she wakes up in the middle of the night and is just being fussy I really get upset with her. It's frustrating when she's spitting up all over the place and peeing on the bed and its 3 am and you're beyond exhausted. I also hope that today my SO and my mother can get along a bit better. And my wisdom teeth hurt.
I wish DH had the boobs so he could get up and feed her when I'm just flat out exhausted!! Last night I could have throttled him!
I nursed Arianna and finally got her changed and settled down for the night (she thought it was daytime and was wide awake). I put her in her bassinet. Meanwhile, DH is watching some standup comedy on tv and gets laughing so hard and so loud that it wakes her up. This continued to go on for half an hour and I told him either he needs to knock it off or go watch the show elsewhere. Finally the show is over, but by then Arianna is hungry again. I finally get her to latch and then DH gives me a kiss and says, "Sorry babe, but I'm really tired and gotta get up for work tomorrow." I told him he was an idiot and I didn't like him much since he kept waking her up and I was dead tired and wanting to sleep but he was too occupied with keeping her awake so his butt was staying up WITH me until she went to sleep.. and I kept him up too!!
I miss my husband :-(.. I wish he was here to help out. I feel overwhelmed at this point and time. I pray and hope I find my groove here soon. I wish I never started Zoey off with a bottle so the BF would work better. I'm in pain to the point I am crying in tears because it hurts so bad and then when I cry it makes me cry harder because missing the husband. I guess I am sticking to pumping but then I'm upset because my milk supply seems to be going down some. I was about to pump 6-8 oz 4 times a day. I got 6 oz at 5 am this morning then about 10 am-11ish I got only 4 oz and a tiny bit more. I'm hoping my milk supply comes back I'm trying not to stress out too much.
ok here is my rant....my DH took that job that I posted about awhile ago...more $, better hours, closer to home...great everything except the change of insurance while pregnant. Well Tyler came almost a month early so that gave us a headstart and a little time....his new company wouldn't budge on immediate health coverage, we'd have to wait the normal 3 months. DH worked his old job a few days into Sept because then they would cover us the whole month and that overlap would meen we would only have to pay for COBRA (an extention of his old companies benefits) for 2 months. I was freaking out about this because it would be costing us $1400/month to do this! With me not working (disability pays nothing) this is tight...even with his raise we would be just getting by those 2 months (we just completely redid our downstairs adding another living room, 4th bedroon and 3rd bathroom= savings gone!), I asked DH OVER AND OVER if he was POSITIVE insurance would kick in Dec. 1st and he said yes! Well fast foward to today, a letter comes in the mail from his new company about our insurance coverage that will begin JANUARY 1st Insurance starts the first of the month FOLLOWING 3 months of employment........I flipped on DH and am super stressed out..now I have to figure out how to come up w/ another $1400 for Decembers coverage. His words were "whats the big deal, we'll figure it out" ..this coming from a man who hasn't seen our checkbook for most of our relationship and has no concept of budgeting. So now I have to seriously consider going back to work full time NOW to jump on my companies health insurance for October. I am so pissed that because DH wasn't thorough enough in finding out the details of this new job I may have no choice but to leave my baby in less than 2 weeks and go back to working 12-13 hours shifts....all precious time lost.
