@justinslovo good morning! Sounds like the consignment sale was a bit of a success! No advice on the nose issue...I'd probably call the doctor actually.
I'm up and pumping. I'm not sure our frozen milk held up- which is really annoying bc there is over 2000 ounces in our freezer. Anyway- I want to make sure J has enough for today when I'm not around her, and with having to dump from taking medication the other night, that means back to pumping every 3 hours. I plan to go back to my normal schedule tomorrow.
If the frozen milk did not hold up, J has about 3 weeks of just breast milk bc I doubt I'll be able to keep up 100% everyday while at work. 😞
C had a good night tonight - 10:30 - 4:30! After a couple not so good nights, this was a welcomed sleep. The only thing that sucks is that by the time I feed him and get him down again, it'll be very close to h's alarm going off for work, and he'll probably start poking at me, wanting some. And I'll feel guilty being like dude - I'm exhausted from baby duty. No.

We actually got good sleep. DS unfortunately sleeps like a rock in our bed. DD woke up at 3 to eat and went back down fairly easy.
I feel like crap. I just hacked up bloody snot so this is just the beginning I'm sure. It's still storming here and I need to drive 15 minutes to the hospital soon to do my glucose test. But not before wrestling DS to look at his toe to see if he still needs to go to the Dr.
All of this needs done without coffee or breakfast.
glb30 2000?!? Omg! You rock! We had an ok night sleep. Up every 3 hours except one woke up was after an hour and he wanted more. Gave him more and he was fine to go back to sleep! My mom flies in today! Excited to see her but she can be a pain in the ass. Shopping all weekend is what's on the agenda

Why does MH just assume that he gets to sleep in today? We had a rough night. DS2 didn't sleep as well as normal (I think because he needed to poop) and DS1 woke up and DH just brought him into our bed without even trying to get him back down in his own bed. And both boys were up for the day earlier than usual... I need coffee and a nap!
Sounds like some better sleep happened for many last night, yay! A was especially fussy but refusing to nap in her swing last night (I try to get her to cat nap around 730-8 with bedtime around 10-1030), so at 9 I decided to swaddle her and just try bedtime, figuring it would create a terrible night for me but whatever. She ended up sleeping 9-1, 130-4, and 5-7! She's now napping in her crib - it's looking like I have a baby who prefers to sleep in her crib - I'll take it.
I'm supposed to go to a baby shower at noon today while my mom watches the toddler, but A is snotty and DD1 is especially clingy so I'm debating. It's a close friend but she didn't expect me to actually come with a newborn so who knows
W gave me my first 5 hour stretch last night! So awesome!
Since we are talking freezer milk, my PSA is to let a little milk sit in the fridge for a few days and then taste it. WithDS1, I froze milk and didn't give him any of it for a few months. I ended up having high lipase and all of my frozen milk tasted disgusting and DS1 wouldnt drink it. I had to get rid of my entire stash and start over with milk I scalded before freezing.

The lab has the f'ing B team working today apparently. The woman at the desk originally thought they had to draw my blood every half hour but thankfully called before they stuck me all those times and it's just two times. Then the woman that drew my blood couldn't find a vein in either arm then stuck me in the hand and had to dig around to really get it.
I'm taking them up on the offer to lay down this time after I drink the drink. I busted out of the house by myself so I'll get a decent nap!

I finally got to drink the damn drink. The lady that brought it made me feel like a moron because she explained the test a different way than she did originally. I felt like an idiot in a waiting room full of people and started crying. Now I'm back in a room pumping so I can lay down.
This diabetes experience has me thisclose to telling DH to schedule a vasectomy asap
Glad it seems like lots of people got some good rest last night. I'm still anxiously waiting for E to give me more than a 3 1/2 hour stretch. And lately it's been 2-3 hours. I know dd1 was giving me 5-6 hours occasionally at this point so my expectations are high, even if that's not the norm.
E was also a hot fussy crying mess for 3 hours before bed last night. Hopefully that was just random and won't become a thing.
We also went to a consignment sale yesterday that was underwhelming. Did get some clothes for both girls and some other toys but was hoping for much better.

We had a pretty good night. One awesome stretch from 10:30pm - 5am, then 2 hours awake with a giant poop and a giant spit up, then two more hours of sleep from 7am -9am. DH and DS snuck out while baby and I were still asleep to pick up coffeecake, fresh fruit, and iced coffee. ❤️❤️❤️
