I bet you ladies are all getting anxious for your wee ones to arrive. I'm so excited for you!
Yep, sleep deprivation is my life right now. I'm having trouble with forceful letdown, and even if I...

@julylacs, it is made, but I just checked and I forgot to add you, sorry! Where is my brain? You're added, now!

Awww, Emrys is beautiful!
Sequoia got weighed at his Dr. appt yesterday - he's 10 pounds! No longer worried about whether or not he's getting enough milk.
I think it is very important to set expectations with any potential family or visitors beforehand. You will still feel guilty and they might feel hurt but inevitably it's your birth and newborn so...

@jtucker, they do an ultrasound, then they strap a fetal and uterine monitor to your belly to monitor baby's heart rate and your uterine activity. You just hang out relaxing for awhile until they get...

@jtucker - glad everything looks good! NSTs are actually pretty fun!
@jessieo- most of what you gain is baby, placenta, uterus, and extra fluids. So you can be down 12 or so lbs right after...

@jessieo, I'm sure your weight is fine. My sister is slender like you and she gained 50 lbs with each kid- they were all healthy and she lost the weight quickly. I was already back to my prepregnancy...
I love languages, and have a BA in ancient greek and latin, but i don't 'speak' them, just read. I have been planning on learning Spanish, so hopefully I will be able to raise my child to be...

Sequoia was super active up until DDay! So exciting that a few more of us are having babies soon!
Good luck, lerenard!
My mom left today. I'm grateful she was able to visit and help out, and...

@angelicainc- LO lost his stump! My Dr. said no alcohol to clean it- just keep it dry.
Woke up to wet sheets under my chest this morning. Guess I really should have pumped out before bed. Luckily...

Also, the pelvic pressure probably means baby is descending!
@julylacs, I just looked up "wonder weeks". Not looking forward to that! I need to bust out my American Academy of Pediatrics book and...

I finally relented and took Tylenol for the pain. It helped, and so did back massages from hubby.
So apparently there are so many things doctors forget to mention, like the fact that the...

@jessie- ugh! I had those pains for weeks! Hope yours are brief.
@julylacs- S sleeps wherever I can get him to, lol!

Ajax is amazing!
November 15th, 2014, 11:01 AM
@julylacs- that's frustrating! I feel victorious because I got S to sleep in his bedside bassinet for 3 hours instead of his swing or ON me. Nighttime is rough!

@jessie - YES. The nausea is completely gone, although I think I will probably have PTSD from it every time I feel queasy now.
Being able to bend at the waist again is amazing. Amazingly, I also...
Thank you all so much! I am enjoying every minute with my little one.

Ugh, sleeping at the end was so uncomfortable!
Breastfeeding is going better, although little Beastie is voracious! My milk is coming in, but he still feeds for close to an hour sometimes. At...

Agree with above, but you might want to begin without all the temping and charting and just have fun with it at first. We just DTD every other day starting at CD 10 or so. It made the process much...

Oops yes and I'll empty my inbox

You're right haha sorry. Group has been created!
November 12th, 2014, 06:43 PM
@angelicainc- yeah we are using a bottle for formula, but I have my husband feed it to him, which the nurse suggested, so he doesn't associate it with me
Incidentally, I think I need a link to...

Thanks for your support, everyone!
@katie - good luck on your GBS! I'm sure your hubby will find something soon. Enjoy having him home to help out! My hubby ended up having to take a longer leave...

@jessicaflux- Luna is so beautiful!!!
OMG, breastfeeding is an emotional rollercoaster! Had to to the lactation specialist today because Sequoia isn't making enough dirty diapers, and even though...

@katie - I ended up on my right side with my left knee clasped in my left hand for leverage. My right leg was bent up, too, and my back was arched back as far as I could go.
Hubby also helped me...
