Twinsanity Setting in? NAH, Just A Rotten Day! 7 wks. 3 Days.
Life With Twins, Leaky Bottles, Monthly visitors, & Mother Nature!
Yesterday was a day where I should have just pulled the covers over my head, and just stayed there. NOTHING went right. I woke up and got out of bed, and that is when it started, ha ha. I felt something gross on my foot, as if I had stepped in dog doo outside, I said what the heck is this, I went in the bathroom and peeled off a flattened, melted, Charleston chew bite from the bottom of my foot. Apparently husband dear wanted a mid night snack, but not pick up his box of candy, and one spilled out. Oh well I thought.
Then I get up, and get everyone ready for the day, and decide to take the girls to that park. Welp, I pull out the ol double snap and go, (I have the twin stroller attachments for the stroll air I just gotto get hubby to put it together for me to use), and holy BEEP, my left hand thumb somehow got caught up inside of the dang thing, as it unfolded, and was crushing and cutting into my thumb. I honestly thought with that kind of pain, and me not being able to free myself for some time, that my thumb might be severed, that is how bad it was. It was so sharp and painful.
All of the pressure of the now nearly opened snap and go, was on that thumb, and I can’t even begin to tell you the pain, and I am so good with pain. it took me nearly two minutes to free myself, because every move I made it just seemed to get tighter and worse, so I was petrified. I swear to God there must be a design flaw with that thing, it opens so fast and where you are holding it, a finger is very susceptible, I better write them, because that is a problem. I had a minor incident with that once with hubby there to help, but this was bad, and so it’s not the first time. ugh. My thumb was bleeding, and dented looking down to the bone for some hours, hence had to go home first and take care of that. Soooo I did just that, and then returned to the park, as i was determined. A nice day I never allow myself, or my family to miss. Ok I said… let’s try this again.
I get out that dang snap and go again, and with a lot of caution, fearfully opened it successfully. I unpack everybody, the sun shining brightly, what a beautiful day, I can finally relax, as I felt very tense since I woke up, I think because subconsciously I knew, hubby would be going back to work in a couple more days (OH, i know my last post a week back said he was going back in a couple days then, but he took off one final week, which I was thrilled about, though we are broke as can be until the end of may now), and so that was on my mind, plus I just had a migraine from the get go of the day, and a bit of a cramp, just not feeling hot at all. So I needed to relax, right?
Welp get to the playground and sit down. My 4 yr old milked me for ice cream man money, and of course she got it. I sat peacefully for about 60 seconds before the first WAHHHH. I did try and plan their feeding well so I would have some time before they would need to feed, so of course I had the bottles and all, but I thought I’d get a little while, but ok, no problem.
I take Annie out of her car seat and prepare to feed her. Hubby packed the Avent bottles, which I talked about in my feature post, they leak like crazy, but I figured, ok I can manage . I took out the bottle and mixed the formula up inside of it. I put the bottle in Annie’s mouth, and it didn’t leak, oh no, it didn’t leak…. it freakin poured, I mean like an ounce or more just completely saturated my poor little baby. I quickly grabbed a washcloth, and tried to dry her up, but she was wet. Then I opened up the bottle and saw that my dear husband didn’t put the seals in the bottles and on the new Avents you need to put those leak guards in, or you will gush. Two bottles and none with leak guards, GREAT. (Not that they fully prevent any leakage with those things anyway, but it HELPS).
She was screaming her head off in hunger, so I tried to somehow angle the bottle to get it to not leak much, but then came gush number two, BOOM, we were down to 1 ounce out of 4, so my poor baby was very very wet. I was not only sad for her, but embarrassed to, I usually appear to have it all together, ha ha. Welp I so did not yesterday.
Anyhow, then what happens? The sun disappears, I look up to the sky, and see the bright sky now behind us, and black skies rolling in. I didn’t hear anything about any rain. Welp we are only close to 1/2 mile from he car parking lot *rolling eyes*. I scream to Mikayla to pack it up, and I had to put my screaming, and soaked baby back into her car seat, and Mikayla just would not listen. By the time I got Annie in and buckled to start moving, and got to where Mikayla was at..BOOM, the rain came pouring down on top of us.
I had to go and round her up, because she thought this was so cool, ugh, and get moving to the car. I had two newborns here. Next CRASH AND FLASH, thunder and lightning came rolling in. All of us were running not walking to the car. Any mom with twins knows when you finally reach the car, getting everybody in and settled then putting away the stroller is not a super fast and simple task, so lets just say by the time everyone was packed up, I looked like a soaking wet rat. So much for taking a shower that morning.
Got home, and not more then 10 minutes later did the sun come out beaming again. I can’t win. I then went and feed Annie another bottle changed her 1st of course, then Allie was stirring, so I warmed her up a bottle. Only Avents were left, great, so I chose one with the leak guard, and after this I made 15 Evenflos, we really got to get rid of the Avents altogether, what a waste. Anyhow, I started feeding her, and the dang think with the leak guard just poured on her. I said that is IT, I took the think opened up the second floor window, and chucked it right outside, the dang thing. I had had it with those things. no worries no one was outside at the time, he he.
Later on that evening, I found an old hpt aka pregnancy test under the sink from way back when. it was nearly expired so I thought to myself, hmm, I wonder if after 7 weeks the body still has any hcg left in it from the pregnancy. I have no idea how or how fast that all breaks down, and since I’m gonna be going on the pill for my period and endo pain, I said, lemme just try a little experiment and waste it, I wont be needing it. NO Iam not pregnant again, ha, It came out negative, so I guess the hormones from pregnancy are fully gone now, but while it’s still April it would have been a great belated April fools trick for the hubster, if it indeed still did turn positive because of residual hcg..can you imagine? he would have lost the rest of his hair for sure! *laughing*.
Not more then an hour later, my 1st post partum period pops up. I was just saying the day prior, how I read that it comes back in 6-10 weeks in 80% of women, and I was praying I’d be at the 10+ wk mark, because I get it really bad and really painful due to endometriosis, so ironically, right after I peed on the stick, and got a negative result, the witch showed after nearly 11 months. what a blast from the past, from when we were actually trying to conceive. How many times did I waste an hpt only to bleed seconds, minutes, or hours later. So now I had a dire migrane, and an awful, nasty, painful period come my way that day, to boot! I will admit it did make me kind of sad to know, I’ll never again be staring at a blazing BFP (big fat poasitive), Pregnancy test again, but we are done, I guess it’s just a normal womanlly feeling, to get that way, especially after you have dealt with infertility before.
Soo now today I’m crampy, headachy, backachey. I remember why pregnancy is such a blessing. No freakin periods. if I could stay pregnant forever, but without having to have 100 babies, it’d be wonderful. I hate this pain:( welp hopefully today will go a alittle better hey?
