Easter Sunday marked 34 weeks for me. YAY!!!! But man I feel HUGE!!! We ventured south to see the family for the weekend. I think that may have been a mistake. I made a new rule while we were gone. If there is a baby #3, there will be NO TRAVELING once I hit the 3rd trimester. I was just too uncomfortable, the bed I slept in was horrid, and I just didn't want to be there. We did have a great time and DS had a blast with all the egg hunts he did. But it was so darn cold!!! I do have a picture to post of me taken on Sunday...I'll get that up once I track down my camera..... where did I put that?!? ;)
I woke up last Thursday morning with a tickle in my nose. Well, Friday I felt a little worse, Saturday a little worse than Friday, Sunday was awful and on Monday I called in sick to work b/c I felt like I had been run over by a truck! Oh this sucks. And being pregnant with this sickness sucks even more b/c I can't take anything! I did get approval for Sudafed and some Robitussin but that's it. None of the good stuff...Nyquil, Dayquil, etc... BUT, on the upside, I feel much better today than I did yesterday, so that's a plus. I am back to work today too so that's good. I don't know if this is a cold or what, but either way, I feel for anyone who has had it! It's awful!!! I made it through the entire winter without getting sick and on the first day of spring I come down with this. That's not even fair!!
Okay...any seasoned veteran parents out there? I need your help! We are having the WORST mealtime battles with DS. It doesn't matter what I make..."I don't like it." And then we proceed to battle with him to just try it. He doesn't get a choice at dinner time b/c I REFUSE to make 2 different meals. Besides, what I am making is usually healthy and good for you...but he won't even try it. So then he starts in talking back to us, which leads to a time out. Then we portion off his food "just eat this much" and sometimes he will, sometimes he won't. If he doesn't eat, he gets NOTHING after dinner and we are pretty firm on that one. I think the problem is that for breakfast I ask him "What do you want for breakfast?" And I usually get back a good response...cereal, waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, today it was strawberries. And when he's home with me for lunch, I usually give him options too, but at dinner he doesn't get options. So is this why he acts like this? If we asked him every night what he wanted for dinner we would get the same response every night--CHEESEBURGERS! I swear that boy is going to turn into a cheeseburger. Any tips or advice out there for me?? Last week, we made Roni's Parmesan Crusted Tilapia, which he has had before and LOVED, and last week he wouldn't even touch it. Is it the age (almost 4)?? I don't know, but I am at the end of my rope with this battle every night.
Oh and I am VERY far behind in my reading. I think I have something like 80 posts to catch up on. I'm working on it, so give me some time. :)
I better get back to it. Break is over! I'll check back later!
