I think I'll look into a chiropractor and go there at first to see if we can correct it. I don't even want to think about surgery! I've done some research and joined a Yahoo group for mom's of kids with torticollis, so hopefully that will help get me through some of this. The ped also told me that because she thinks my dh and I need time alone that we should let her CIO. NO WAY! She did let me deny the shots but other than that, I found some of her advice...
I'm even more frustrated. Took Miss A to her 2-month checkup. We almost got the shots but Amaya started just screaming from the EXAM! So she was so inconsolable, and just from the exam alone, that I said I'd postpone the shots. She is 11 pounds, 1 ounce, 23 inches long. Growing! She told me to STOP TRYING TO BF. She said it's just taking too much out of me and too much stress for Des and I. She said she's never told anyone that before but she can see in us that it...
Of course I need to join this thread! I've had a horrible pregnancy from the start. I am hypothyroid with asthma and allergies. I had gallbladder removal surgery at 22 weeks of the pregnancy. I was 4 days overdue and because I'd had a broken tailbone in the past, I had HORRIBLE back labor and was just plain miserable, begging for induction. I tried all the natural remedies to get things going and nothing worked. : When I did go into labor, I labored FAST. ...
Honestly, I need emotional support more than anything right now. I have had a few local mamas PM me and I've PMed them back with phone numbers and IM names, so I'm trying to connect with people a little. I don't think I ever said I didn't NEED help, just not sure what I need help with at this point.
I actually have a minute to myself. Amaya and her dad are sleeping in the bedroom and I've been cleaning all day, had to go to Kinkos and fax something for a new/different/additional job...whichever it ends up being. Even when I was 8 months, 9 months pregnant, I worked 2 jobs and my dh didn't. It was rough. He is younger than me, and at times I think that's the problem, that he just never grew up and that it was my fault for getting involved with someone younger, but...
Just coming to join in and check out the tips and advice... This one-income household MUST be frugal!
Thank you everyone! I really appreciate all of the offers of help, the love, and the support you all have given to me over the past day or so. I've needed it immensely. Honestly, everyone is offering to help and I have no idea what I need help WITH. I'm so used to doing everything for myself and not having any help that I don't even know what it would be good for others to help me with. I'm just one of those people who have always just relied on myself... my own...
I went to the OB today... she was really nice and started me on Effexor and I have an appointment for a transvaginal ultrasound (how fun!) on Monday to see if there is retained placenta. If so, they will do general anesthesia and a D&C in same day surgery to get it out. She also mentioned that she thought I should use something like the Mirena IUD for birth control as other forms of BC can cause depression. But I'm scared about getting something foreign like that in my...
Well I'm going to tell my OB tomorrow about my worries and responsibilities and get the bleeding checked out. In the meantime, I am scared to even hold my own baby because every time I do, she cries like she hates me. My husband is resentful of me because she wants him all the time and he thinks that I don't take care of her enough but I can't get any of the other stuff done if I have her all the time anyway. My MIL's reaction to the porn stuff? "well... he's a...
Thanks everyone. I have an appointment tomorrow to see about the bleeding and talk about the PPD again. I reallllllllly don't want to stop pumping/trying to get her to latch. I will feel like such a bad mom and so guilty for giving her formula. : At the same time, I feel so overwhelmed with activities but how do I explain that to dd one day, "well I had too much to do and couldn't give you the food you deserved?" Ugh. Total guilt trip. The things you all...
