I can't believe how often I'm managing to get on these forums! Can you tell my hubby is still home?
He goes back to work Saturday, so I'll probably be MIA for a while coping with the early starts.
Amie I'm really glad your day went smoothly. I'm sorry you're feeling a bit emotional at the moment. I hope this settles.
Vanessa, you know what I've missed? being able to sleep on my stomach. It's so nice I can do that now, although I do miss my pregnant belly. The only sign that I was ever pregnant recently are the few stretch marks I have around my belly button, otherwise I'm pretty much back to normal and in normal clothes.
Vanessa, I have to say too, I think you're doing a great job! And on your own too - I just don't know how I'd manage. And I wouldn't worry about the weight - if she's happy and drinking all her milk then I'm sure she's fine.
I used to find salt baths were really effective at relieving itchiness "down there". If you haven't tried this, maybe give it a go, It might help.
Enjoy your mothers group meeting tomorrow!
Shari I've been eating quite a bit of naughty food too and I was thinking the same thing - I'm sure I'll start to pack on the kilos soon
So how are you managing the two girls through the day? Hopefully Charlize starts sleeping at the same time as Taia soon so you can get a nap too! Sounds like she's slowly stretching out those feeds. Does it take long to get her settled through the night?
I'll check out Heather's store - thanks Shari!
Louis seems to take in a lot of wind with his feeds lately. He projectile vomited twice yesterday and then spent about an hour screaming, poor little man
. I'm finding he needs to be burped more often. He will often sleep for 3-4+ hours in a row - which is good, but I'm finding that he's awake for close to 2 hours at a time. Especially at night
But he is starting to self-settle which will be good when I need to focus on Annabelle, but through the night, I have to admit I tend to hold him or offer him a dummy (which he still makes a face at and spits it out after a few quick sucks
) so he doesn't wake up Annabelle rather than let him cry.
How is everyone else doing?
