    Name: Aimee
    Baby's name: Rylee "Roo"
    Baby's birthdate: 3/29
    Baby's current stats: 11.6 lbs and 22 3/4 inches
    Baby's next appt date: May 30th 2 mos appt
    Your next appt: May 20th

    About you:

    Natural birth or c section: c section

    How are you recovering physically: awesome now! Started working out lightly and feeling great

    How are you recovering emotionally: good... Was down for a bit with the bleeding and health and stuff

    What is hardest part for you with recovery: the bleeding was rough and some pain due to it being my second

    How much longer on maternity leave: 3 weeks from Friday

    What did you decide on birth control: had my tubes tied... Even though I knew it was the last and I am totally good with two it felt weird

    First time moms what is your favorite part of being a mom so far:
    BTDT moms what did you forget about newborns that you love: watching all the new things. Like you feel them developing for 10 mos but now watching it is amazing.

    Baby time:

    How is the baby sleeping: last night gave a 5 hr stretch which is awesome. Usually like 4 hrs but just like with DD she is soooooo noisy when sleeping!!! This will prob be reason she goes into her own crib in her own room before too long

    What size clothes is the baby in: 0-3 mostly. The newborn are not long enough and she used to scrunch up all time so they were okay but now stretchy mcstretch is too big for them. She has really only been in sleep n plays every day which is so easy and convenient at this age.

    What is the baby's favorite baby gear item (swing, stroller etc): pretty much okay in everything. Likes some tummy time in the hoppy which helps with her gassy issues. Only item we don't really use is the pack n play which takes up so much space

    Any gear the baby hates: none. We just don't use the pack n play
    Who does baby look like: most people say me. As she is filling in everyone sees more of DD who literally is a mix of me and DH.

    If siblings how are they taking to the baby: good so far. DD is really sweet with her and loves helping with her.
    Any concerns you have about baby: she is very stuffy and our allergies are horrible here and me Dh and DD all have really bad ones. She sounds so stuffed up and hates having her nose sucked but the boogies are so big.

    Any questions you have that someone could maybe help with:

    Anything else to add: I love hearing about all these babies!!! My DDs board still keeps in touch and it is awesome having a community like this

    Name: Jill
    Baby's name: Kylie
    Baby's birthdate: April 15
    Baby's current stats: She was 6lbs 10oz and still 18 1/2in at her one week appt
    Baby's next appt date: May 20th
    Your next appt: May 29th for 6 week postpartum

    About you:

    Natural birth or c section: Natural
    How are you recovering physically: Feeling like it's going a whole lot slower this time around which bugs me, but overall ok I think
    How are you recovering emotionally: Today is a bit rough. DH went back to work this week and his parents are coming in this weekend, so i've been feeling overwhelmed today trying to get the house cleaned and everything.
    What is hardest part for you with recovery: Not being able to do as much as I normally would.
    How much longer on maternity leave: N/A
    What did you decide on birth control: Will be asking for birth control pills at my 6 week check and will be looking into DH getting snipped at some point.

    First time moms what is your favorite part of being a mom so far:
    BTDT moms what did you forget about newborns that you love: The little smiles and snuggles

    Baby time:

    How is the baby sleeping: PRetty good...we get anywhere from 3-5 hour stretches and except for 2 or 3 nights when she does wake up she's up long enough for a diaper change and bottle and is back to sleep.
    What size clothes is the baby in: Newborn and some of those are too big
    What is the baby's favorite baby gear item (swing, stroller etc): We only have a bouncy seat for her and she does just fine in it.
    Any gear the baby hates: Nope
    Who does baby look like: DS
    If siblings how are they taking to the baby: The 13 year old is whatever and loves to laugh at the faces she makes. The 6 year old has had a tougher time and can see the jealousy but is very curious about her and asks a lot of questions so I think he's getting better.
    Any concerns you have about baby: Don't think so.

    Any questions you have that someone could maybe help with: How many times a day does any one elses baby get the hiccups? Kylie gets them anywhere from 2-4 times a day. She did when I was pregnant too, but just curious.

    Jill rykee is the same way. I remember DS was like this too and I asked the other day at the docs and still totally normal from the gasping of air while feeding and crying etc.

    Ok cool. I figured it was normal, but man i'd hate to have the hiccups that many times a day so I can only imagine how she feels with them.
