There are a few blogs that I love to read and regularly check. When they go for days at a time without posting it is soooo frustrating. I'm like, come on aren't you here to entertain me? Post something already!! So, I'm sure you're all at the edge of your seats waiting for my next post. Sorry to keep you in such suspense.
Judah's fever ended up turning into a cold/cough thing. We had to give him Robitussin so that he wouldn't cough and wake himself up several times a night. Eric & I both ended up getting this and have been congested and stuffy. Judah is feeling so much better and Eric and I are well on our way to feeling better also. I've been napping a LOT during Judah's naps, which helps during the day, but then at night I can't sleep.
As for sleep, I am so confused with Judah's sleep. He started sleeping through the night on his own at an amazing 10 weeks. Even the pediatrician was surprised. And, we were so thankful. After trips, sicknesses, etc.. he's woken up in the night, then gone back to sleeping through. Right now, he's at the waking up. The first wake up last night he cried for about 5 minutes, then went back to sleep. The second wake up he cried for about 20 minutes and I finally went in and picked him up. Of course, that just reinforced the cry and I'll be picked up thing. But, how do you listen to your baby crying hysterically for more than 20 minutes? Eric and I have decided several times to just let him cry it out, but it's easy to say in the middle of the day. Not so easy in the middle of the night when Judah's crying, I'm wide awake, and of course Eric is sound asleep. All rationale goes out the window and I'm swayed by my mommy emotions. I must get Judah sleeping well asap so that I don't die from exhaustion.
I know if I can just make it to the second trimester (hopefully!) some of my energy will come back. Right now I am almost 10 weeks along. We have our ultrasound on Monday, so we'll have a new pictures to post, too!
