been Loving up Lilly (update)

so i thought I would pop in for a quick up date.

Me and Lilly are doing well, and the breast feeding is going good. I am super happy i haven't given up, she is such a good baby.:D The day I had to pump and dump made me realize how much i really wanted to breast feed, since the formula made her a completely unhappy miserable baby.

I really want to type up my birth story but I am having a hard time coming to terms with what happened to me. Dh and My Mom are going to write there version since there was a point where i have no clue what happened to me or what they were doing. :confused:

I felt so violated and i am still an emotional wreck, because I trusted my MW and the staff but now i never want to set foot in their office again.
I plan on making a formal complaint to the hospital and their practice.

All my help goes back to work on Tuesday, so I will be all by myself during the day, and she will already be 2 weeks old. wow.

I miss talking to you all, I want to say congrats to all our mamas, and I hope everyone is doing well.
I know you all understand about being busy with our LO's.
Hugs I will be around when I can .

i'm so sorry that her birth was not what you wanted. Do try to write it out even if you never share it with anyone other than your DH. it will help you heal. i know that writting it out and time helped me heal.
Give yourself time and enjoy your precious Lilly.

hugs!

It's crazy how much time slips by when you're with these LOs.

I'm so sorry you had a terrible experience. Big hugs to you

OMG - same here...I've been thinking about the board but that's all I'm able to do lately until I get to some sort of a routine with my bobo!

Hope all you ladies are doing good - and you too due date buddy! I haven't kept up since I gave birth to Layla so I think I missed what happened - sounds awful - HUGS to you, hope it resolves in the way you would be happy!

Not even halfway with my birth story - will post as soon as I'm done...!

Thinking about y'all

xx

I agree with this... It helped me come to terms with my first birth experience.

I'm sorry it went so wrong. In the end, as long as you both are alive and healthy that's what matters. So try not to be too upset. Sometimes expectations don't get met- again my first birth was totally the opposite of what I wanted and I had issues coming to terms with it. Talk to a dr or another healthcare professional who you DO trust (even a counselor) as it can help.

Even this time when I needed the d&c I have some times after surgery that. Don't clearly remember, it's just bits and pieces in my memory. It's actually a good thing, if you want more children later it helps not remembering the horrible parts lol.
Enjoy Lilly. I'm glad she is doing well. Hugs
