    See, part of that is my concern as well...I return to work after 12 weeks. I only work 3 days a week, but will need to pump. It's hard to tell if I am a poor pumper or just never established a good supply without nursing, KWIM? Ah well, only time will tell.

    Good news, bad news today...Good news is that all my bathrooms (2.5) are cleaned from top to bottom. DD took a rare early nap and I was able to do a top to bottom, hands and knees cleaning. My molding and baseboards are white (argh!), so it was great to have them wiped down. I figured being on my hands and knees was a good idea for making sure that the little guy rotates in a good position. I have an anterior placenta, so I want to make sure he doesn't decide to face it and end up posterior. Not terribly worried, but every little bit to avoid back labor should help.

    Bad news...I feel like I was on my hands and knees cleaning 2.5 bathrooms! Go figure. And DH has a cold, so there is probably no extra rest in sight. Oh well.

    I understand, I'm a SAHM so pumping wasn't really that important to me unless I wanted to go somewhere without a baby. I really, really hope things work out better this time. I didn't realize you were working outside the home. Sending all the ~~~positive pumping~~~ vibes possible!

    Isn't it sad to be so satisfied with a job well done and to feel all the work you've done for the rest of the day/night?!?! Glad you got things done at home!

    Wow, you are awesome, cleaning (essentially) 3 bathrooms! I did an hour and a half on my hands and knees weeding the garden last week and it was murder on my back later on! Way to go, sounds like nesting perhaps??

    Re: the BFing. I really have no clue, but is it common for babies with DS to have difficulty nursing? It is sort of expected to be a challenge in that situation, or do they normally nurse as well as any other baby? Just thinking that if the DS played a role in your BFing difficulties, then you likely won't have to worry about that with this little guy.

    Nicole ~ babies with Down Syndrome can have additional problems with nursing, but it is typically caused by low muscle tone/problems sucking. My DD didn't actually have that issue, but just didn't care to eat much period, LOL. Otherwise, many babies with DS are breastfed just fine (barring medical issues like surgeries which might get in the way). So you are right, I am less worried about the little guy latching or eating, since most babies like to eat much more than Kailey did. And I know (intellectually) that my issues with not being able to pump, may have been just that...not being able to pump. But since I do work three days a week, that is a concern (and I provide our family's medical insurance, since DH is self employed, so not working isn't a great option for us).

    I know it will all work out fine. Kailey is perfectly happy and healthy, having only had a small amt of BM. It was much more my issue with not being able to nurse her and you are right, BFing with probably not be an issue with this guy. I just need to not worry about it too much.
