Make up sex

Tonight is Day 7 of new drugs (Avanza for those other crazies out there).
Felix said to me tonight, unprompted and from complete left field “Gee, those new tablets are working.”
Since the meltdown on Monday night (and thank you to one and all for your words of support and encouragement) life has incrementally got better.
Chef and I have overcome the domestic disharmony – hence the above title.
I am, in my head, starting to feel better.
*****
I absolutely detest all the animals in my house. Except the fish.
It actually takes physical restraint on my part to not kick the cat or the dogs. Purely because of their existence.
It’s like I can only have enough love for the people in my world. The animals can all go and get fucked.
Seriously, my hatred for them all even surprises me.
*****
I almost ate an entire packet of SAOs in one sitting. On a couple of different occasions in the last few days. With lashings of butter and thick vegemite.
But MAN the indigestion afterwards.
*****
I haven’t been able to commit to a TV series (like Lost, Desperate Housewives, Heroes etc.) for years now. Seriously.
I’m mildly addicted to reruns of Everyone Loves Raymond and Sex and the City. I went through a Will and Grace phase but seriously, whatshername the redhead, irritates the crap out of me.
I am very very cranky that Cycle 8 of America’s Next Top Model is occuring and it’s not being shown in Australia.
*****
Further to the growing animal intolerance is the exacerbation of all my hayfever allergies that I never ever had until I was pregnant with Felix. I am now so seriously allergic to our cat I can almost not be in the same room as her.
This is quite an issue considering she likes sleeping on our bed.
*****
I am so physically uncomfortable it is really, well, uncomfortable. Seriously, I feel like I did in my final week of pregnancy with Jasper – and I technically have 6.5 weeks to go.
I’m large, my tummy is as tight as a drum, my back is killing me and I just can’t – e.v.e.r – get comfortable.
If I do get to term, I’m pegging this one at being at least 4.5kgs (about 9pd9ounces). Jasper and Felix were both 4.3kg (9pd 8) so you know… although, the meds might have an impact on birthweight. I am staying well away from any website talking about the impact of anti-depressants on unborn babies – a rare move on my part but one I have just decided upon.

    Oh God yes, do not read any of that shit, Kim. I steadfastly refused to look up any possible effects of the cardiac drugs I had to take when pregnant with the girl, and I still don’t know TO THIS DAY because I refuse to look.

    So glad you’re feeling better.

    I hate pets, too. Which is why we only HAVE fish.

  • Joke

    We only have fish here, also. As a bonus, if we forget to feed them, they eat each other.

    P.S. Have you tried swimming in a pool? My wife spent the last 3 weeks “in swim” and said the first time she went in it felt better than getting pregnant.

    You know, the only thing that could be better than Badger’s blog would be Badger’s blog when she was pregnant.

    Cardiac drugs. Dude, I need to read some of your archives more thoroughly I think.

    J – SWIMMING! That is exactly what I need. Me thinks we will be heading to the pool this weekend. PERFECT!

    Aren’t fish great. I don’t even mind cleaning the tank. Which is completely inexplicable considering the energy required for that in comparison to how resentful I am at having to put a handful of catfood out for the cat each day. Go figure.

    So glad you are feeling better.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better. I refuse to look up side effects for the a/d I’m on – it’s supposedly safe during breastfeeding and that’s all I needed to hear.

    That whole rage thing that comes with depression is so fun, isn’t it? I get the same way. Like it’s not bad enough being depressed, but do I have to feel just this side of a homicidal maniac, too?

    Yay for meds and the joy they bring!!! So glad the fog is lifting my lovely lady – hope it stays that way. I know you are baking the most beautiful healthy bubba in your tummy.

    Clearly I am hearing you on the pet thing!

    Love you lots

    Love you heaps K. It’s good to hear there’s a bit of sunshine peaking through those clouds.

    Lilibet! You know, I started an email to you after your comments on Jasper rockin’ the overalls (green corduroy – only the best in this house) filling you in on all the happenings but it was so god-awfully painful and doom-focused I just couldn’t do it.

    Big hugs and kisses to you and the big man – I just know you are rockin’ the old country.

    M – thank you oh beautiful one. 🙂

    Bedhead – I keep telling myself that the bub won’t have to go through detox as he/she will still get it through the breastmilk. Warped logic I know…
