I'm sorry merryrissmas , that was me on my first maternity leave. Besides keeping my older kid happy and fed I'm trying not to wake up with expectations or a to-do list in my head each morning like I used to. If chores get done they get done. If they don't I try to tell myself there's always tomorrow.
I think I have a cavity. A molar was sensitive to hot/cold and now I see a small spot on it. My appt is Dec 1st. I'm totally blaming pregnancy.
And DD1 is currently having quiet time in her closet. Her choice, not mine.

fem - My teeth have been more sensitive lately and I'm also blaming the pregnancy. I know there's a link between oral health and pregnancy so makes sense to me. I have a dentist appt Nov 18 and am just hoping for no cavities.
Lots of hugs @merryissmas & @snuff9861. I feel the same way - I'm very routine-oriented & thrive on predictability (& a full night's sleep!), so the infant stage isn't my favorite. I didn't start enjoying my mat leave with DD until she was around 4-5 months old (I had 6 months off). This time I only have 16 weeks of leave & I'm worried that I won't get to the point where I'm enjoying it.
cbowl, which position are you using for the ktan? I found the kangaroo position hurt my back much more than the hug position. Also, any chance your toddler will help climb into her crib? My DD (3.25 years old) loves helping get interested her crib - she can swing her leg over so I don't have to lift her all the way.
Ugh.. is there a 10 week growth spurt? E has been nursing every 2 hours for upwards of 40 minutes all day. Naps have been almost nonexistent even in the swing. Trying to nurse her to sleep now so we can make it to bedtime without a meltdown (her or me)..
That sounds rough jennybeans - FX for a smoother night! Kelly Mom says "Common times for growth spurts are during the first few days at home and around 7-10 days, 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months (more or less)." I take this to mean anytime LO is especially cranky or nursing a ton during the first few months, it must be a growth spurt!
