    Ugh, I can't seem to catch a break! I've got another nasty cold. My ears are clogged, coughing and snotting green stuff, and body aches. I'm pretty sure yesterday afternoon I had a fever, but nothing today. I think I sweated it out all night last night. The incessant coughing was really getting to me yesterday, but seems better today, although my incision is really sore again probably from all the coughing.

    Justus had a little snotty nose and cough a couple of days ago, but thankfully it passed quick for him. He has been wanting to nurse about every 30 mins today it seems. I don't know if the meds I've taken may have dried me out? I've been trying to counteract it with drinking a ton of water.

    I can't believe he is two weeks old tomorrow!! We have a ped appointment in the morning. I was also supposed to have my 2 wk PP home-visit, but I asked her to wait until Monday so that I don't share all of our little germies.

    And only 4 weeks to go before I can start working out again!! Oh how I have missed going for a nice, long run.

    Oh my goodness Connie!!! How painful! What did they do when it opened?

    Yeah I'm getting ready to take my butt to the doctor. My face hurts, and my incision is feeling much more sore today. Ugh, I hate going.

    We took Justus this morning for his 2 week appointment and after waiting 45+ minutes, the nurse came in a weighed him and said "Ok, we are good to go then, you can get him dressed." So we thought we were done and walked out the door to go get some lunch. A few minutes after we got to the restaurant, the doctor's office called and asked if we had left, that we were supposed to see the doctor. So now, we have to wait until almost 5 to take him back. I hate doctor's offices!! I don't understand why it is so hard to honor an appointment time. I've even shown up like 30 minutes early and still had to wait an hour past our appointment to be seen. What happens if you show up late to a job interview?! You don't get hired!! But we get taken advantage of because we "need" their services. Ok *end rant*

    So Justus has gained one full pound and one full inch since birth. He is now 8 lbs, 12 oz, and 20.25 inches long Mama's milk must be doing something right!!

    Oh no, I hope you feel better soon! I am just getting over a bad cold, and I did some reading--yes, cold meds can affect your milk supply by as much as 25%! I'm sure it'll come back if you keep doing milk-boosting things, but that probably is the culprit. (lots of good info on kellymom)

    Oh no to getting another cold. Hope it goes away soon. How frustrating about the docs. office. Bummer that you have to go back so much later. They should be bending their schedule to fit you since they told you to go. Sounds like he is a growing champ!

    Did you go to the doctor? How are you feeling?

    As far as busting open my incision... During the night I had a bad coughing spell from my cold. I was sleeping and just woke up out of a dead sleep coughing my head off. The next day my incision was sore but not really hurting so I didn't think anything of it. That night though when I cleaned it good with a washcloth there was a lot of blood. I got a hand mirror and took a good look. I was open about 2 inches on one end, and 1 inch on the other Of course it was after midnight so I went to the ER. They cleaned it good, assured me that the layer of stitching underneath was intact and it was just the surface stitching that had broken up, and they steri-stripped it. I ended up back in the ER less than 24 hrs later because the cough got so bad and I was afraid of it opening more! They gave me an Rx for codeine and it helped. But the incision never really hurt through all that. I think it was still fairly numb. Thank God for small miracles

    Booo for feeling ill! I hope it passes quickly!

    Yay for your growing little man! They grow toooooo fast! Waiting that long is totally unacceptable. Would you be able to find a different doctor?

    I ended up with a sinus infection, and they gave me a prescription for cough syrup with hydrocodone which has helped a ton. I mostly only take it at night and early morning since that is about the only time I am coughing really hard. I'm also on antibiotics for the sinus infection. My incision still looks good though there is a small spot that has opened on one side. I've just been told to keep a close eye on it, and thankfully mom is a nurse, so she can do all that steri-strip/cleaning and stuff if I need her to.

    Erin, I am thinking of taking the kids to a different doctor. They have a branch off of the same clinic that is about 10 mins from my house but much "smaller town" feeling that I am going to try next time. I have to say I like their whole set up but they are just so busy that I feel like we don't get the treatment I would like.
