Oy!

It has been one heck of a week. Cranky kids (thanks to colds) and a cranky mommy (thanks to a mild cold and cranky kids) do not mix well. I though it would be a snap week since my husband had two extra days off. Ha! That is what I get for thinking.

Evan injured his foot but since there was no actual sign of swelling or other injury we were baffled as to the true nature of the injury. All we knew is that he was refusing to weigh bear on it. Of course this happened on a day when I absolutely had to be somewhere so I ended up dusting off our stroller to cart him around in. The foot is better and he has been hamming up the pain for attention's sake. When he is at home he can walk almost normally but when someone else is around the pain is almost unbearable. Sigh.

Evan also got a nasty bloody nose thanks to his inability to keep his $%@$##ing finger out of his nose. He is still doing it and it is frustrating the heck out of me. Luckily it did not take too long to stop the bleeding but there was a lovely blood trail for my husband to clean up with the carpet cleaner.

Harry is having mixed results with potty training. I have a time set for every half hour to remind him but he is not showing much initiative to go on his own unless he is bored. When he is bored he would spend hours on the potty if he could. He loves flushing the toilet so much that it clogged last night and overflowed. I was rather irate about that one. I am not sure but I think he is pooping in the potty which is a very good sign. I have not seen any logs in the toilet since he loves flushing but he has also not been going in his undies. He is either constipated or actually using the toilet.

The baby is still a boy (nothing has fallen off in utero) and developing fine. He would not hold still so they were not able to get very good pics of his heart. I am going back for yet another scan in a month thanks to my gestational diabetes. They want to make sure that he is not growing into a monster baby.

I did my oh so delightful 24 hour urine test (my mental voice is dripping with sarcasam as I type that line) only to find out when I dropped my jub off that my orders were lost. I was about ready to loose it when I heard that. It was humiliating enough to have to do the supid test in the first place and the possibility that I might have to repeate it was stress inducing. Luckily I had a lovely tech that took the my jug and also a blood sample (to cover all bases) and called the doctor to get everything figured out.

I got my eyes looked at (yet another gestational diabetes thing) and got the "why are you even here?" vibe from the doctor. He said that unless I had been diabetic before my pregnancy that the likelyhood of me having eye damage was quite low. I had a blast having various lights shined into my eyes and various eye drops put in them. My eyes were also dialated which was loads of fun and even with the sunglasses they gave me I ended up with a headache.

I am hoping that we can do some fun stuff next week so that I don't have to keep complaining in my blog. Evan's birthday is coming up and I have to start planning it now.

I feel your pain and remember how hard pregnancy #3 was even as it was wonderful at the same time. Try to enjoy it. The months go so fast.

I think you have every right to whine, you are in a hard place right now! It will end! The baby will eventually pop out, Harry will eventually be dry and in big boy pants and Evan will eventually stop trying to dig his brains out. These things too shall pass. If you don't go mental in the meantime.....

Chin up!

Ok I 100% agree with your blog title today.... OY.

Well thank God that week is over and a new one begins.

Jaelithe said...

Hmm "Why are you even here?" Maybe because SEEING THINGS is important enough to you that you'd rather not take risks with your eyes?

Silly doctor. Aren't eye doctors always nagging people for not taking frequent enough eye exams anyway? And what-- he didn't want your money? Heh.

I hope everyone's health improves. I got my own son to stop uselessly flushing and re-flushing by having repeated discussions with him about Why We Don't Waste Water. It eventually sunk in. Eventually.

I'm sorry you had a rough week! Hoping this week will be much better!

And what's up with the doctor questioning why you are there?? It infuriates me that doctors are not in communication with each other. Argh.

He did not come right out and ask me why I thought I needed the appointment, I just caught a vibe off him that seemed to be a "why are you even here?" I am sure he was happy to have an easy appointment. I have not been experiencing a change in my vision or anything, I was just being a good girl and going where my OB sent me.

What a week! Sometimes a Dr. can act so superior. I try to avoid those kind---it's stressful enough just going to appts. without being patronized.
Harry is at that so interesting stage of potty training--- interested by not reliable yet. Think I carried around extra children's underwear in my purse for years and years.

Sounds like a less than delightful week. I would say OY too. Hope this week is better.

Hang in there, hope this week is a better one for you!
