Now my washer wasn't really stinky gross or anything , but it did have that laundry detergent filmy scum in there and kind of a weird smell when I stuck my head down there to see if my washer really was smelly !
Since I tend to do quite a few loads of laundry a week and now have a newborn and do even more . I thought if I can try this and it makes my washer smell better ...great ! Not only did it get rid of the strange musty smell it also got rid of all the left over detergent residue that was in there .

that's why when she's sleeping he thinks it's a good idea to turn on the music as loud as it can go while he also presses the button to vibrate the bed and hits the speed so it will shake as hard as it can . I think he knows she likes that sort of thing when she's in there sleeping, because he never ever does it when I'm holding her and the bassinet is empty !
He also likes to peek over the edge and look at her and nicely yell as loud as he can ....HI DOLL ! I'm not sure where that even comes from since nobody here ever calls her that and he's never been anywhere there are little girls that have dolls .....weird !
He also has started to hug her when I'm holding her ...it looks more like a deadly headlock...but I know it's a hug ! I do have a couple pictures of it , I just didn't get them on here yet .
She actually slept a little better the last couple nights , but pretend I didn't tell you all that because if she finds out I will surely be awake for the next week !
Yes I know she's sleeping in the wrong end of the bassinet ...I mix it up each time I put her down and put her in the opposite end from where she just slept.....I'm a rebel like that !
So this has been my life for the last couple weeks.....EXCITING ....isn't it ?
What have you been up to...anyone got any big plans they can share with me so I can be jealous of the fun you'll be having this weekend while I chase kids ?

However it makes me wonder why is it that a man can season the meat the night before and then spend three hours sitting outside tending to the BBQ, but when you ask him to feed the baby a bottle after you have been up all night with her breastfeeding and changing her bum and such for hours on end ....he whines he's tired and acts like it will kill him to get up at 4:30 am after sleeping all night to feed his baby a bottle for ten minutes ? !!!!

First off... I was given this award by Lynette over at Crazed Mind and wanted to say thank you and tell you to go check her out !
Now I'm not going to list anyone , since the last few times I did nobody played along....You know who you are people !
Just know I do love every one's blog that I visit even if I don't comment on them daily .......I'm busy here people ! With a 17 month old running around and a newborn who never sleeps at night !
Next is ....if you have never tried the Cafe Mocha from McDonald's don't bother they are yucky ! My dh just brought me one and I took two drinks and the rest is going down the drain . If you like them , then all I can do is guess you have never had Tim Horton's because their stuff is awesome and OMG I just seen when I made the link that I can now shop online....after 4 years of me whining about not being able to get it here and I can't even order it online .....now I can !
Now I'm not saying McDonald's sucks....I had their hot chocolate daily for breakfast all winter , and I eat there all the time......but their coffee stuff sucks !
Now.... why is it that men can get up and shower and go out the door without a care in the world? While women have to get up look after kids ...run to pee if they think they can and either wait for all the kids to be sleeping or take kids into the bathroom with you or resort to begging/ demanding that the man watch them for a little while so you can have a shower !
I just don't get how men think of themselves before anyone and women think of everyone else before themselves ! To the one man I know of that reads this I'm sorry if this offends you or makes you angry , but that is how women feel whether they tell you or not !
Now ....on to my beautiful new baby....I love you Little Miss you are so cute and snugly but why oh why don't you ever sleep at night? Why does momma have to sit awake all night so you can talk and poop and eat instead of sleeping like you do so nicely in the day ?
When the dh and the boy get home from golf he's going to bbq ribs and fix the fence so the puppies can't escape anymore or so he says .....I hope he does because I'm sick of chasing puppies !
So what are your plans for the day ?

The DH has steaks going on the BBQ right now and I made potato salad and were having baked beans and rolls for lunch ...so that should be good.
Other then doing things around the house we won't be doing anything too fun and exciting this weekend, and he goes back to work on Monday after being off all week with me.
So what are your plans for the weekend ?

I went to the hospital Wednesday morning and when the doctor checked I was still the same as on Monday . I had been having lots of pains since my appointment , but I guess they didn't do anything . She was going to break my water for me and then give me a few hours to see how things went and if nothing started on it's own was going to start pitocin ( yuck ) .
When she went feeling around it hurt big time and I said no don't bother with the breaking my water ..just start the pitocin and see if it will break on it's own like last time . ( It didn't )
She came back after a couple hours and I had been having contractions the whole time checked again and I was still around the same a little different , but not much so she went ahead and broke my water and cranked the pitocin ( yay ) . Things really started to go then , I was better then a 2 and had my water broke at 12:15 she left and went back to her office. She asked if I wanted an epi I said no ( I never get anything for pain , I just live through it ) .
I normally get up and go pee the whole time I'm in labor right up until I feel it's time to push. However this time after a couple times I didn't feel the need to pee anymore (weird) and I would be sitting there and all of a sudden say to my poor husband " OMG I'm peeing " it would just happen and I didn't know it until it was. I have never had that happen before and I did not like it . The nurse said don't worry about it that's why we have all these pads for the bed so just do it....like I could stop it anyways !
My contractions got worse and worse and then I said " I can feel the baby pushing" the nurse checked and I was only at 6 ...that's never happened before either ! It gets worse and worse to the point where I'm starting to freak out because I can feel her pushing , but know I'm not at 10 and she can't be trying to get out yet !
After me getting to the point where I'm freaking and demanding she call the doctor back over to the hospital at 2:40 or so she gets there checks me and still I'm only 6....WTH ! I have been having bad ones the baby is trying to get out and I haven't changed at all...meanwhile I haven't gotten out of bed the whole time ..which is very odd for me. The doctor goes to leave and will be back when they call or when she's done at the office but I freak out so bad I demand she stay ! She was great with me even though I was turning into a complete crazy screaming wild woman , she called over to the office and said she wouldn't be back until after I was done .
After more and more contractions and them feeling around they discovered the baby's head was sideways ...I have had one baby that came out face up instead of the normal face down and it does hurt way more.....but let me just say this that's nothing to your kid's head being sideways and trying to come out mostly when you are stuck at 6 !
They cranked the pitocin as high as it would go trying to get me to go up faster and thinking maybe if they were hard enough the baby would turn her head and come out right and not half kill me on the way down. By this time I am screaming and crying and begging them to give me drugs or knock me out and just pull the baby out ! They say no we can't give you anything , since the baby is turned wrong and you are only 6 and she's trying to push herself through anyways...if you had drugs you wouldn't be able to feel what is going on and tell us so we know , since we can't see what she's doing.
Then in the middle of all this the nurse mentions you haven't peed in quite awhile so I bet your bladder is full and the baby pushing on it will be making the pain worse too, so they decide it will be a good idea to give me a catheter to drain my bladder then take it out once they do . I have never had one before so of course in between me yelling at everyone about everything I start saying no I don't want one. Plus I remember the nurse telling me earlier in the day about when she had her baby and her nurse wanted to do one to her and she wouldn't let them until her epi was in so it wouldn't hurt so bad and she said she never gives them to anyone until they are drugged or numbed first....but here they are going to do it to me with nothing !
I got it ...and boy did it hurt ! Then when the doctor pulled it out I literally had a vision of kicking her in the face as she did it...it was not pleasant and I do not recommend getting one ever without some form of drug first !
So it's around 3:10 and I have been really feeling the baby pushing and in my head I'm thinking cool this baby might come at the same time as her brother 3:20 ...I really did feel that close ! However I'm still not to 10 and I'm being told make sure you don't push when she is , until we say you are ready....this went on and on and she was not born until 3:56 ...the whole time I cried and screamed and told my husband and anyone in the town with their windows open " I will never have another baby, I don't want to do this ever again "
Now we laugh about how much I was screaming...at the time ...not so much !
I have never done that before and this time I made up for the other 4 kids plus 10 maybe ! It was so bad even my poor husband was crying because I kept looking at him begging him to help me and he knew the doctor said they didn't want to give me anything.
After it was over and I looked at her being weighed I couldn't believe it ...she weighed 7 lbs, 15.2 oz. and she was 2 weeks early ! Her brother was 7lbs 15 oz at 1 week early and their big brother was 7lbs 15oz on his due date.....weird !
I guess once my babies get to that they just need to come out ! The doctor said after it was all over , that she couldn't believe I managed to do it with nothing for the pain and she was so glad I had refused it at first...she told me that if I had of been on something and not been able to feel what she was doing I would have been in a real mess ...she would have just pushed her way down through even though I was stuck at 6 and she would have done alot of damage to me without us even knowing until she was doing it or done it. Plus the fact that her head was sideways made it so much worse.
The nurse that had been over by the baby warmer thing told my nurse afterwards that she could see at the very last minute that the baby's head turned the right way through my belly , but my nurse never noticed it happening at the time...she was too busy holding my leg and having me break all her fingers to see it .
I felt bad I had been screaming and yelling at everyone and cried and apologized to the nurse for doing it and to my doctor, but they were both great and said don't worry about it they have seen way worse and most of them were even on drugs while they were doing it.
I felt bad for making my poor husband cry scared to death over what he was seeing...this is the same man that has been to war and seen people's arms and legs be blown off and whole bodies get blown up, but the sight of me freaking out and begging for help made him cry.
Anyways that's the story of her birth ...well the short bits and pieces of it . Good luck to all the women out there , going to have babies in the future ....I will not be joining you again !
