Your name? Mandi

Baby's name? Isaiah

How old is baby now? 12 weeks, he'll be 3 months next week

What size diaper? 3...and I'm thinking about sizing up :eek:

What size clothing? 3-6...and some of that could probably be put away as well

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? Breastfeeding, it's going great!

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? They are really great with him, almost too much Lol In the morning they all love to come in my bed and talk to/sing to the baby and he just loves that! The only thing is that sometimes they'll fight over who gets to hold/talk to him Blum 3

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going?

Anything else you'd like to share? I was at my mom's last night and weighed myself, then myself with him (I don't keep a scale at our house) and he's 16.5lbs!!! He is so good too, I just can't get over it.
Oh and a great note for me, I'm finally losing some weight. Down 10lbs from my 6 week pp appointment...12 more to go to get to prepregnancy weight, though I wouldn't mind losing another 5 after that.

Your name? Meghan

Baby's name? Audrey

How old is baby now? 7 weeks 2 days

What size diaper? Mostly in cloth, but fits a size 1 sposie

What size clothing? Just packing away the NB, so 0-3, some of it is still big

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? Breastfeeding, going well, had thrush but we're better now

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? Hailey adores her "yittle yister". Wants to hug and kiss her all the time, always asking where "Auggie" is, calls her by the same nickname we do. Very sweet.

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going? On mat leave for a year!

Anything else you'd like to share? I am starving all the time. I know its the breastfeeding, but that combined with barely eating all pregnancy from the hyperemesis..I am eating my face off. And not healthy things. Was going to give myself 3 months to eat what i wanted before starting WW again, which would take me to Jan 1..but I am worried I am actually going to start gaining weight while BFing! Need to cool it on the junk food asap.

Your name? Emily

Baby's name? Eleanor

How old is baby now? 10 weeks

What size diaper? size 1, but I'm guessing 2s would fit

What size clothing? 3-6 mo

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? BF at home, pumping at work, sending expressed milk to daycare. Guessing my stash will run out before Christmas, though. Sad

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? Pretty well, now. DD1 loves giving hugs and kisses to her baby sister, and is often trying to meet perceived needs (i.e. grabbing a pacifier and shoving it in baby's mouth when she squawks, wrapping baby in a blanket saying she's cold, turning noisy toys on "so the baby can play with them", etc).

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going? It's going. I don't hate it but I don't love it most days. It is nice to get out of the house and talk to adults sometimes, and I have some awesome coworkers, but it is just a very busy, demanding job. I'm lucky if I can break away twice to pump (12 hr shift).

Anything else you'd like to share? It's amazing how much my girls look alike! I am going to do a comparison post on my blog at some point.

Baby's name? Vanessa

How old is baby now? 3.5m

What size diaper? 1

What size clothing? 3-6. She is thin but tall.

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? BF. We do one bottle a day but it is my frozen milk from her NICU stay.

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? Good. No real jealousy but there is dissapointment/anger that I can't play at the park properly because I have a baby carrier on.

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going? n/a

Anything else you'd like to share?
Tried a babysitter last week so we could go for supper Smile It went well so we'll do it again.

I started an exercise class and DH is looking after the girls then Smile It makes him appreciate what I do.

Good news - down 27 lbs.
Bad news - still have 12 get to pre pregnant/+10 more to get rid of what I gained during my m/c. My eating has been greatly affected by DD1's attitude and my sleep.

Your name? Cristina

Baby's name? Jacob

How old is baby now? 8 weeks on Thursday

What size diaper? Huggies 1-2, but I have a box of 2's waiting for him to finish this pack.

What size clothing? 0-3, but he's right on the border for 3-6 now.

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? Formula, and going great. He's a great eater and fantastic burper!

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? They don't live with us, so so far their only interaction is over the phone and through pictures. DS2 tells me often how excited he is to meet Jacob, while DS1 only mentions something if he hears the baby fussing when we talk on the phone. Excited for their big first meeting next month.

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going? N/A

Anything else you'd like to share? The family and I went to have family portraits done yesterday. I think they came out FANTASTIC. Some of you may have seen it on FB, but if not, here's a link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2623316511023.145039.1498546563&type=1&l=ec900879af

What size clothing? 3-6 months and already tight he's so long!

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? Breastfeeding

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? They adore him... it's hard to give Clara the amount of attention I used to give so when I nurse I sometimes lay down and we all cuddle.

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going? I am a stay at home and have an online business.

Anything else you'd like to share? Markus has started sleeping through the night the last 3 nights between us, hope it keeps up. He will ONLY sleep if he's on his tummy though!

Your name? Janelle

Baby's name? Evie (E.V.)

How old is baby now? 12 weeks

What size diaper? size 1 huggies supreme. I have some OS cloth but she's too small for them still....

What size clothing? She's in between newborn and 0-3 months and has been for 2 weeks. She lives in newborn onsies and pants cause the sleepers are too short.

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? BF exclusively. We have our issues, but I'm too lazy to go pump or buy formula.

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? They have gotten used to her being here now. They are in their own little world with their own little issues right now to worry about a baby sister. My oldest is having trouble in school and I am pushing for an ADHD diagnosis, and my middle child is exhibiting signs of Aspergers and I am working towards a diagnosis of that with a state program that we've been working with since August for his delays in communication and fine motor skills.

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going? n/a

Anything else you'd like to share? Real quick (Evie is stinky and I need to change her) So this time with both of the boys I swore I was pregnant dues to my body's ability to f*ck with my brain.. 2 weeks ago it started messing with me again.. but I have some added symptoms and I'm paranoid. We are supposed to be done. I haven't been great at taking my mini-pill for a couple of weeks.. I've got a lot of sh*t I'm dealing with right now, so I'm hoping it's just that. But yesterday I had blood tinged mucous (sorry, TMI) and with the boys, AF didn't return until 8 months out. I'm testing after Thanksgiving and then switching birth control if I'm NOT already pregnant. :eek:

Anything else you'd like to share?We are going to visit family for the holiday tomorrow up in the SF Bay Area. It's a 6 hour drive and I'm a little nervous as it's been a while since I've traveled with a small baby and I have to find some way to pump on the road as it's about a 6 hour drive. We're going to leave when he wakes up to eat in the middle of the night so here's hoping we don't hit too much traffic

Your name? Amanda

Baby's name? Elise

How old is baby now? 2 months

What size diaper? xs/s cloth

What size clothing? mostly 0-3 months, some fits, some is still a little big

BF/formula/pumping/other? How is that going? BF is going beautifully - I pump if I miss a feeding for work and DH gives her a bottle of expressed milk, but that's not every day

If you have other kids, how are they doing with baby? Claire LOVES her! She constantly kisses and hugs Elise, and is always telling people how cute "her Eweesie" is Smile

If you've returned to work outside of the home, how is that going? I never really stopped working...I showed houses the day before she was born and did a deal the day after! Luckily I can schedule my work day however I want, so I still get to spend a significant amount of time with my girls.

Anything else you'd like to share? I can't believe what a different experience I'm having this time! Claire lost a lot of weight in the first week and took a lot of time to regain her birth weight - while with Elise she barely lost any weight the first week and now she's almost 11 pounds already! She's an eating machine, I can hardly keep up, I'm already below my pre-preg weight and I eat all day long!
