Thanks to Angie, Lindy, Tara and Lynsie for th
Becca, if they recommend the mini-pill then you could just buy hpts from ebay! haha. That's where I got all mine when we were TTC! But in all seriousness, I'm pretty sure they have low dose bc options that are not as low as the mini-pill.I do have a prayer request, would you please pray that DH's knee feels better soon and he didn't seriously injure it? Earlier he was helping Gabe put his toothbrush back on the shelf in the bathroom. Gabe wasn't too keen on that idea and was trying to reach back and get the toothbrush and somehow in the process of Gabe fighting DH managed to smack his knee on the edge of the counter. It hurt so bad he dropped to the floor screaming (he didn't drop Gabe though, he set him on his feet first). Poor Gabe was scared to death and DH feels awful for scaring him. Gabe thought DH was mad at him. DH was screaming so loudly my first thought was that he'd fallen and dislocated his knee. But he barely has a mark, he has no idea why it hurt so bad. That knee has been giving him trouble off and on (like it hurts and it will randomly go out on him when he's walking). He had an x-ray done and everything looks normal in there so we don't know what's going on with it.Gabe has developed a cough on top of the snotty nose. It doesn't seem to bother him too much, my biggest problem is getting him to rest and not agrivate the cough. Once he starts bouncing around the house like normal he coughs harder. He also is hardly eating and that always stresses me out. Even though I know it's normal to not eat much when we don't feel well, it's always a big deal to me when Gabe doesn't eat much because we have such a hard time with his eating habits as it is. Him and Elena were sooooo clingy today too, more than normal, which I'm sure is due to their colds. Plus I think Elena is starting to work on her next set of molars. Ohhh yay. ;)Do you have any specific prayer requests?
Becca, thanks for the prayers! DH's knee is feeling much better. It still hurts but he's not limping around on it anymore. He's getting a sore throat/cold now. He was joking with me that he just can't catch a break!Thanks for the pedialyte suggestion, I wish Gabe would drink it but he won't. He won't drink any juice either. It's water, milk (flavoried with a bit of chocolate carnation breakfast) or pediassure. Picky kid! ;) He seems to be feeling a bit better, he ate okay today. Not like...great...but...normal for him. He rarely eats great lol.Will be praying for Ben's teething to not be too rough. Teething is just so hard! Also praying for good travel for your aunt and uncle. Will be praying while your hubby is gone, both for a safe trip and for it to not be too crazy at home with him gone.
I feel really bad for Gabe, he had a rough night.
I hate when one of us goes from one kind of ailment to another. It's just not fair! (Like earlier this year when I had a cold and AF at the same time. Ugh.)
Hope Gabe's eating even better now and doesn't have any lasting effects from the bump on his noggin. Tim's a picky drinker lately, usually refuses juice and just wants water or strawberry milk. And we also see our fair share of bumps and bruises these days, usually more scary for the kids than damaging or worrying for us.
Ben's been eating more the past few days so we wonder if he's in a growth spurt. He's also grumpier and tonight he came up to me holding his mouth and half-screaming so I'm more sure of my guess about teething. I gave him some Tylenol and I think that helped. Should keep it handy in case we need it overnight 'cause teething and a growth spurt could be a difficult combo
I haven't heard from my mum about her sister arriving yet, but I should be sending an email anyway so I can remind her to call or email with news. :)
Hubby is meeting his co-worker on Sunday around noon for the drive to the coast. Hopefully we'll have a good Saturday night together and a partially lazy Sunday morning. ;) I'm anticipating the days feeling a bit long without Hubby around to entertain and help discipline in the normal hours he's around, but at the same time, I might get away with slacking off in the cooking department (breakfast and lunch food for dinners) and also having more movie time since I'll save TV shows till Hubby's back. It'll be interesting, anyway!
Time to head to bed and hope Ben sleeps all the way through this time. Otherwise I'll need a nap!
