I though boy with my older two. They are girls. I thought boy for #3 so I figured it must be a girl too. We had a girl name picked out but I wanted a boy name just in case. For weeks we searched for a boy name we could agree on and came up with nothing. We were surprised to find the baby was a boy! It took us 6 days to name him.
I have a 0% success rate too.
Enjoy your surprises!!
Are his lips out? I had the same problem and my friend saw he was pursing his lips in. I started pulling both top and bottom lip out and it helped relieve some of the pain.
I didn't unlatch and relatch a bad latch, I would just pull out his lips after the latch. I had blood blisters and the latching and relatching hurt too much.
They are healing and his latch is getting better, he's 2.5 weeks now.
YOU ARE DOING A WONDERFUL JOB!!!
I'm serious. It sounds like you have figured things out. Baby will let you know if you are doing something wrong. And what works for one mom/babe does not necessarily work for another. Enjoy your babymoon!!
Good luck, contracting mamas! I hope things pick up and bring your babies out!
I've got a little bloody show. I've been contracting off and on today, nothing like yesterday though. Hopefully this is FINALLY the beginning of the end...? I know it could be hours, days, weeks even, but I'M READY NOW.
