Yep, there were *3* calls to CPS but couldn't find out from whom about a homebirth! thats all they knew besides my name and cell number. Its all fine now just a pain with everything else going on and I'd love to know who would call, but I'm guessing it was someone that I went to school with down here. I'm pretty sure most of the other people I know wouldn't do that at least not without even asking if we were planning on taking him in or not, the people who called just assumed that since we didn't go immediately then we weren't going. Which is what pissed me off more than anything else..
Aria's surgery went good. She had to have 6 caps put on. shes still pretty doped up and acting very silly but doing ok so far.
I didn't get much sleep last night. With not getting any naps yesterday and being out almost all day, Trystan just wanted to nurse all night.. It felt like we'd fall asleep nursing then I'd wake up when i popped off and wanted some more. Hasn't pooped again but tons of gas! oh my!
Dan's mom is coming in tomorrow for the day and then back on sunday-monday. My mom is coming in on Tuesday for a week so I'm excited to see her again. I've been moving around and feeling really good. That 'roid cream they gave me doesn't feel like it does anything. But I don't know if its supposed to kill the pain or make them shrink or what.
OH. MY. GOD! I cannot believe someone would call CPS about a frickin' homebirth! Accidental homebirth at that! I'm so sorry that you had to deal with that. Luckily everything turned out ok. If I found out that one of my "friends" did that to me, they had better watch out! I hope you get some rest and time to enjoy your new LO now that you have family coming to help.
I was thinking about posting something directed to them on your wall, but I decided to be a good girl.

hehe, yeah, i thought about it also, but since i'm not really supposed to know anything about it (like that it was people who saw it online or that it was more than one person) i decided against it.. I went through and deleted everyone that i went to school that i don't actually talk to ever and some others that i don't really know..
we slept good last night and this afternoon.. my milk came in so they're way full but no engorgement. My nipples however feel like a piranha has attacked. I've been expressing some milk and rubbing it in but they're killing me.. His latch seems fine but it hurts every time he clamps down. I can't figure out what the problem is. I'll have to see when/where there's a LC around here or even LLL but I really dont know what they have here. He's starting to have the bm poos but just a tiny bit so far. He's nursing alot and often but ouch.. The two nursing bras i bought of course are now too small so i'll have to go shopping soon. ugh.. i hate looking for bras. I have one nursing tank that fits for now. He's one gassy little guy too.. He's down to 10 lbs now, but i think alot of it was fluid.. his legs aren't bruised purple or swollen anymore and he's fitting into 0-3 month stuff better. I don't think he'll be in the small diapers for long
Dan's getting another eye infection.. ugh.. this is the second one in the last 2 months.. i dunno what it is about this place and him getting sick. (he had an ear infection about 3 months ago also.
I'm glad that Aria's surgery went well and that is behind you guys. Yay for your milk coming in but ouch, I remember that nip pain. Hope it passes soon and you find someone to help. Glad LO's legs are looking better and he is fitting into his clothes more.

We do have a LLL. Check their website for details. And LGMC has LC's on staff. Long day, late night, heading to bed, more later...
I'm late, but congrats on the birth of your son! He's adorable, and what an amazing birth story.
If it seems like he's latching deeply and you're still getting pain.. are you able to see into his mouth to check for tongue tie?

I'm late on this, but congratulations on the unassisted vaginal breech birth of Trystan! Sorry people called CPS, that's dumb! Glad you are doing well!
