Yeah, I'm sure I'll get the hang of it and that's why I'm making sure to try to do it solo so when I have to go back to work it is not such a surprise, lol!

ACK! All the water is driving me nuts too, but I have been having a soda a day.
As for me, I am usually lurking around, I have just felt so cruddy I didn't want to seem too complainy. Wynnie is perfect baby, and we haven't had any issues with adding her to the mix other than DS is feeling extra 6 year old lately (he is usually doesn't act up much) but he loves his sister soooooo much. I on the other had have been dealing with anxiety, I usually have it pretty high anyhow but with all the hormones I am finding it really hard to keep in in check, and have been yelling excessively at DH and the apartment maintenance people because we keep having **** happen and they act like it doesn't matter... anyhow had the two week PPD check up at the birthing center Saturday and scored pretty high on the test because of the anxiety, so they prescribed Zoloft and suggest strongly that I seek a counselor which I am pretty against as it is generalized anxiety and I don't think talking about will sort it out. I have put off starting the Zoloft because I am pretty afraid of the side effects which I seem to get at least a few of whenever I take meds, but I guess I will start it in the morning....
See that was all whiney complainy... Stupid hormones...
Also I have a really strong urge to go for a run, but my pelvis has started hurting these past couple days...
I'm dying to go running but am trying to wait it out the 2 more weeks. I started running at 2.5 weeks postpartum last time and it seemed to make me bleed forever and feel drained all the time. Just me though. I have started biking though (indoors only so far). Sorry about the anxiety and overall just crummy feeling :( I hope your hormones sort themselves out soon!! And I was doing a soda a day if I wanted one too but I haven't lost a pound in over a week and actually have put a few back on so I'm cleaning my diet out for the time being of empty calories as much as possible.

I have been trying to make my coffee at home and bought a chiller glass for it and just bought white chocolate syrup, (no dairy or soy!) hoping its good but trying to hold out so I don't have two today lol.
I got my gauze wrap yesterday! I tried it out today and for what time I wore it, I liked it. Jonah seemed to like it too, he fell asleep after about 10 minutes. Wrapping it was easier than I thought and it seemed like I got the tension just right. I guess I get to try it outside Thursday, but thankfully it's not supposed to be too hot.
Friday I went to Micheals and Hobby Lobby and had the hardest time finding decently priced fabric for the wrap, so I over paid but still used the 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby. It's just a jersey knit, so it's a bit warmer but oh well. Wore her at walmart for a good three hours with her sleeping all but fifteen minutes when she woke up to eat, and wore her today at bass pro, she is so much easier to take out than DS was.
