    The hardest thing for me is being away from Trystan due to work. I cried again when I had to leave him today... it's the hardest thing in the world and it breaks my heart.

    I'm pg and feeling it. Although yesterday I felt great and today i have lots of butt pain, like my tailbone is broken. Ive been up since 5 am, from 5 to 9 I was in the bathroom over and over, emptying my system iykwim. Then we went to the mall and I went to pee, washed my hands and felt something weird....went back into the stall and saw that I lost my entire mp and had the bloody show. We walked a bit but nothing has been happening, oh well.

    Still pregnant and feel like DEATH. That is the only way to describe it. I just feel so heavy and weighed down. My body is exhausted from carrying this big ole belly around all day. And at night I get no rest to make my body feel better. Come on son your Mommy needs you to come out!!

    hardest part is trying to make my toddler understand that he cannot squeeze his little sister or hit her...really just dealing with his jealousness.

    The hardest thing for me has been getting breastfeeding going. We have just gotten where he can latch on and nurse but it still takes 20 minutes sometimes to get him latched. It's getting better though.

    Second hardest is controlling the other two while I am locked on the couch with him.

    I'm struggling with crazy over supply. I'm pretty sure I have some sort of hyperlactation issue. Which I'm sure to ladies with not enough supply it sounds like a good problem but really not so much. A 2 hour drive to my inlaws I felt let down twice and wound up with a horribly painful clogged duct that I then spent the rest of the day trying to get rid of b/c if I didn't I'll wind up with mastitis. I can't really GO anywhere b/c I have to sit around basically topless b/c I leak so much. At night I can't really wear a bra b/c they will give me clogged ducts from the pressure but if I don't I soak the bed. I'm trying NOT to pump b/c it only makes it worse but sometimes I have to b/c my let down is SO strong it sprays everywhere. And like yesterday with the clogged duct in 2 pumping sessions of roughly 7 minutes I pumped 10oz -- between nursing as much as possible. I had all the same issues with Evan and as Rory gets bigger and more efficient he'll eat better and my body will chill out. But it is frustrating and the clogged ducts are incredibly painful. I did wind up with mastitis once with Evan and I felt so awful I can't imagine having it and having 2 kids to wrangle so I really want to get through this phase.

    Sounds like my story! I lost my plug on Friday and Delivered Sunday!!! "Hope this is it for you.

    I hate not feeling better for my family. I am so ready to feel like myself. I miss spending time with my kids and DH. I did forget how hungry I am while nursing. I eat more now than while pregnant!!!! I think he is sucking the life out of me But would not change it for anything. I love this baby so very much!!!!

    Hardest thing is not being able to fully care for her recovery means I can't carry her, pick her up, change diapers, etc poor DH is doing it all, he's amazing but it's hard to watch him work nonstop.

    Katie, I'm so sorry you're dealing with all of this. I must say though, I'm totally jealous of your milk supply. I have to pump three times just to get between 6-9 oz of milk... and this is pumping both sides. I'm actually thinking of renting an electric pump to try and get more milk out. Since I'm back to work I know Trystan is only going to want more milk the older he gets...
