Can anyone help me become an ordained minister? I found a website that has me type my info in and then "ordains" me but it seems a little too easy. Is it really that simple? Are there classes I should find? What's a reputable website to go through? TIA for any help or direction you can provide. :)
I'm 2.5 weeks PP and I feel great. I felt great the first day, sore but mentally great. I'm still bleeding a bit and I have  a nasty hemorrhoid that makes crapping a terrifying experience. But other than that I'm good. I took a little peak of my "down stairs area" the other day and wow...everything is so...stretched out still.

There are mother's milk teas you can drink, eat oatmeal, have a oatmeal stout beer (think guiness). 
What an experience! So glad she is here and you can enjoy those baby snuggles! Congrats!
 You wouldn't suggest waiting longer for results on the dairy elimination? Everyone I've talked to about dairy elimination says it can take 4 weeks to leave mom, then 4 weeks to leave baby. 
 idk if you have seen this already or not, but i wanted to pass it along.http://purplecrying.info/index.php
Everything. I hate being pregnant, the end result is great of course but the process sucks.
