Thanks.. Hope all is going well with your little ones. I am still having nipple pain. Almost two weeks out. Its pretty bad tonight. I would love to make this work. But its not getting better. My lc says to keep pumping and working on their latches. Pumping only yields 1 oz per 15 min. We will see how today goes. The boys are 13 days today. Hayden my refluxy one seems to do better with bm so I will keep trying.
We ff at night just so I can get rest but I am still up to pump at least twice.
Ok, pumping session over... Back to bed.
Ps where are your little ones all sleeping? The rock n play and swing are our go to night spots for now. We slept w ods on our chests every night but we are trying to take our bed back.
Aww, Tiffany, they are adorable!! TFS :D
Holly - I am sure you are so done with this pregnancy. I know what you mean now about being a little sad that these babies are my last. Even with twins, and the exhaustion with it, it still makes me a little sad. But we are a very active family and I am also looking forward to our adventures ahead.
I am looking forward to watching the kids grow and interact with each other. Like you said the other day too, it'll be nice to plan things with them that wouldn't be so easy with a baby. It's just hard to say goodbye to that stage of my life. Overall, I'm super happy that I've been blessed with 4 little ones, and can't wait to see what will happen in the future!
Tiffany - you're doing so great and I hope things get better with the nipple pain. It took a few weeks with this LO for my nipples to get "desensitized" even when he was lathing right. It's hard to be in pain and keep doing something so draining. Pumping has always been a drag for me, I give you major props for keeping up with it. I hope you're able to get the sleeping situations resolved soon
Holly - I can see what you mean about bei excited to plan out more involved things for the future. We are so undecided on whether or not to have baby #3. As much as we are undecided on #3, it's fun to think of the future with our completed family.
AFM - things are pretty good but the days/nights thing is really taxing. I have been having a hard time getting DS to sleep in the middle of the night no matter how much he eats during the day. I am trying not to push a paci too hard but I think if he decides to take to one it will help as he wants to suck to sleep but often gets angry or refuses the boob because he doesn't want milk. Other times he just wants to comfort nurse which I'm okay with to an extent. I don't want to use a paci to get out of feedings if he's hungry or needs the bonding but a balance would be nice. I try to remind myself that even if he ends up like DD and doesn't take a paci and wants to comfort nurse a lot, it's a short amount of his life that he'll be so attached to me.
I spilled coffee on my laptop the other day and it finally died a few days later. I haven't bothered getting it checked out with Apple because I know that it's likely the motherboard that's fried from where the spill was and that sort repair costs almost as much as a new laptop so I'm watig it out. I want to get a ton of writing done so having that out of commission drives me nuts but my old laptop does still work for basic stuff so whenever I get a chance I'm going to pull it out.
John has his one month appointment tomorrow which I cannot believe. I am really curious to see how much he weighs with his double Gina and chunkier cheeks he's developed.
Party crasher = me? Can I join in with your chatting and whatnot ladies? My board is sooooo slooooow, it makes me so sad. :'-( After the baby comes is my favorite time to chat and share pics and all that, but my board has only a few people posting (including YOU Mia) I'm *almost* a January mama. Heh heh. Does that count for anything??
Marie stayyyy!!! Lol
Tiffany i understand about the pumping because im trying to keep with it !
Mia- ugh i could only imagine what Apple would charge to fix your laptop!!! Hope your old one can function properly so you can get your work done
Holly- i would be excited about the future too especially during vacation time!! For me i know that after two this is it ! Being a ftm is def a learning experience especially being paranoid about him breathing and chocking ughh!
AFM everything is cool over here besides DS congestion ..i think he has a slight case of acid relux because ha has had a couple of episodes where milk or saliva has come through his nose making it hard for him to breathe so i sleep with the aspirator next to me at all times! I cant wait for him to get older !!
I agree stick around Marie! I wish more of the December mamas were more active too.
Tasha - I am sorry about the reflux that sounds awful. I agree it's really hard to deal with health or any sort of issues when they are so little. Even minor things seem to have such a pronounced effect on them. I hope his congestion goes away soon!
Last night DS slept from around 10 pm until 3:30!! He'd been nursing like crazy all day but he's been comfort nursing a lot this week so I was not expecting such a long stretch it was great.
Hi Marie :wavehello: I agree...stick around! The more, the merrier :)
I got to thinking this morning, that I am the last one to deliver, aren't I? Less than 48 hours to go. We've got a fun-filled, busy weekend planned, so hopefully that will help time go faster. I am taking Addison to get her nails done today. She earned it as a reward for good behavior. The girls are going swimming tomorrow for Girl Scouts too....and Little Man is heading off to my Grandma's for the week. He's so excited. Keeps asking if he can call Grandma, and I told him to just be patient because he's going there on Sunday.
We're all on the mend here, too. Lauryn's fever finally broke Wednesday afternoon, and my cough is slowly disappearing. Hopefully we'll all be healthy come Monday and no one else will get sick. Addison has been double exposed; here at home and someone in her class has influenza too. Hopefully she won't get it!
Mia, that's a great stretch of sleep!! WTG John! How did his 1 month appointment go?
