Getting close to having to abolish my weight from titles. I weighed 123.0 on the day of my IUD placement last Wednesday, 125.6 on Monday and 121.6 on Wednesday. I’ll probably be like 121-124 when I weigh myself again on Monday. I weighed 118-119 when I got pregnant and would like to be between 110-115. Though I think 115-120 is where my body naturally resides. We’ll see what I can take, physically and mentally. Eric’s going through a growth spurt and nursing like crazy and as such I am allowing myself to eat whenever I am hungry which is ALL THE GODDAMN TIME. It struck me today that if he’s eating more, I need to be eating more. Ohhh, logic.
New theory: babies suffer from rapid-cycling bipolar disorder. Honest Toddler described it best as “laughcrying.” My son’s mood swings- how he can laugh and smile with glee one hour and screech inconsolably an hour later is startling, no matter how normal it is.
Restarting P90X has been nightmarish. Starting it two months ago when my sleep deprivation, postpartum depression was at its peak was easier than it is now.
Went to Goodwill today to get my 11-week old some 6-month clothes because he’s exploding out of his 3-month clothes. I shouldn’t be proud my kid is so…robust. They were playing Billy Ocean and I had to fight the urge to break into song and dance. My god, I’m going to be the kind of mother who embarrasses her child with my weirdness.
Had a physician explain Light’s Criteria to me last week. It was fascinating.
My favorite coworker, and someone I find to be an amazing nurse, quit under scrutiny (possibly narcotics-related?) during my maternity leave. I’m floored. In my mind she’s too talented/compassionate/educated for it to have happened. We’re in the same adult nurse practitioner track.
God, can you believe I work with nurses who don’t have their bachelor’s? North of the Mason-Dixon line I’m pretty sure hospitals shy away from ADN-prepared RNs. The two people I found out were ADNs are, of course, the best at stating IVs. Obnoxious as hell. I hate that no amount of education will ever allow me to get an IV on some dehydrated 80-year-old.
