    Default Boo...

    Well.. first let me just say that YES this is Jessica. When I tried to log in under babywings1, it wouldn't let me. I sent a message to Missy, if I even did that right, so hopefully she can help me out. I'm using DH's 100 year old desktop and let me tell you.. I had to download so much stuff just for it to work it's CRAZY. I've been using my MAC, but Julie decided to puke all over it and it died. Horribly expensive computer just...sitting there. And it's cheaper to buy another laptop (not a Mac) than replace it, so we're going to do that until we have some extra cash to fix my Mac. It was the FIRST time I dragged out the computer while I was feeding her and she decided to puke all over it. UGHHH Anyway, I had to reroute my internet and cable..we have a looong cable running from a bedroom LOL it looks SO bad. But we got online and then I had to download things to make this monster run. Anyway, I'm thinking maybe that's why I couldn't log in.
    Julie has not been a happy baby. I was throwing up Tuesday morning and asked DH to stay home with me. BIG MISTAKE! He's not used to her 24/7 and she wasn't happy - kept screaming and arching her back. Even though I was miserable I ended up taking care of her anyway because he just wasn't...capable. He took a nap (butthead) and woke up to her screaming some more. He started cussing and throwing things. Not at us, but in general. I mean, he was being a total jerk. So, before I hurt him really bad (kidding......sort of.....) I called the pedi who told me to come in. She gave us some Zantac to try and said if it seems to be working I can switch formula back to Similac Sensitive (I'm currently using Nutramigen..which is expensive and STINKS). She said if the Zantac doesn't work than we can try some baby stool softener/laxative. I really thought it was an issue with her poop but the doc seems to think it's an issue with her acid reflux. (She weighed in at 10lbs 7oz) So, we went and got it...gave her two doses that day. That night, she smiled a little and went to bed. Next day she screamed a little in the morning, but it passes fairly quickly. That night, for two hours, she climbed on me and smiled smiled smiled. Last night she was fussy, but not horrible. I pray this Zantac is working. She still seems to have issues, but not like they were. I hope it stays this way. I love those baby smiles. Even DH wants to hold her more now because she smiles at him. He was getting down because she was crying all time, especially when he was holding her. He doesn't seem to understand that she's just more comfortable with me because she's with me ALL the time.

    So anyway, that's my really long update!

    I had the same problem with my log on when I was on my board for my daughter. Basically nothing they could do and I had to make a new sign on. Another mom on my board had the same thing happen and it stinks because you have to start all over

    I hope the Zantac is working. I'm sorry your DH is struggling with her. Like you said though, it's not going to get better until they get used to each other.

    I am having trouble getting onto preg.org with my phone, which is why I haven't posted in a few days. Sucks

    But sorry to hear Julie is uncomfy. Henry is really really fussy. He eats, gets burped, gets a dipe change and then he is back to crying. He rarely sleeps. Took him to the pedi today and she prescribe zantac for us today too. Hoping it does something. She wants to see us back next week to make sure its helping otherwise they will do a sonogram for pyloric stenosis. But his spit up is mostly drooly and not projectile, so I'm not sure why she is thinking its that (I googled it).

    I hear ya on the DH part, I woke up with a 103 temp yesterday and noticed my boob was all red, so I called the midwife and she said its mastitis. I called DH and told him that he had to come home. He about lost his mind being here all day. He gets angry and its hard for him to control his emotions. He says mean things like "I can't wait for this kid to be in college already."

    I'm glad the smiles make up for the fussy times! Hope Julie continues to improve!

    actually Missy can merge the two accounts, or at least she used to be able to. To prevent login issues make sure you complete everything needed.

    They couldn't for me. The other one became frozen and inactive. This was 3.5 yrs ago

    I don't know what it is about the men, but many of them don't seem to click with the babies until they can interact with them. My buddy at work is just now starting to smile when he talks about his 4 month old baby. His baby seems really easy too, but he would get really frustrated when the baby's needs were met, but he would still fuss/cry. It seems to take some with the dad's.

    I think with men it is all about how much they are around kids previously. I see it a lot with my friends and my DH was totally calm and natural and I think it is because his mom did at home day care for the whole time growing up. He was around kids way more than me and even things that worried or freaked me out he could handle.

    Yeah, my DH is totally not a tiny baby guy. He finds them boring at best (like, when they are sleeping or nursing or sitting quietly they are tolerable but boring, and when they cry they are the worst things ever. I think my DH really started bonding with T once he could make T laugh. I assume it will be the same with Reid, because they aren't particularly bonded yet. The "can't wait til this kid is in college" thing is something that DH totally would have said out of frustration when T was a baby. FTR - he and T are now best buds, and he hasn't gotten nearly as frustrated or said anything mean about Reid, maybe because he has learned that this part is over so fast and that he will be crazy about the kid soon enough.

    That really sucks about your laptop! I would be sooo mad!
    And it's really hard to have a newborn and bond with someone you're not around as much. I have to say though when I am "done" with J's crying and fussing, Dh is always cool about it. It stresses me out but it doesn't affect him nearly as much.
