Thanks for the suggestions! I ate a huge bowl of oatmeal this morning, so hopefully that will help.

....to increase my supply? DS was born 2.5 weeks ago, and I'm still not making enough milk for him. We're nursing 8-10 times a day (using an SNS to supplement), pumping about the same amount, drinking Milkmaid Tea, taking 3 caps of fenugreek 4 times a day, taking 4 tabs of reglan each day, and I still can't pump out any more than 1/4 oz out of each breast with a hospital-grade pump.

I got the epidural once we got to the hospital, and Liam was born with the help of the vacuum extractor. It's not...
I'm resurrecting this thread to add my latest pic, taken last night. I hadn't taken any pics since Halloween! Anyway, here I am at 38 weeks 4 days....all the stretch marks are leftovers from dd's, no new ones this time! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...eekspreggo.jpg
I wish! I'm just feeling reclusive, even in regards to posting. According to EDD I've got 10 days left, but I hope this babe makes it's appearance before then....
We're going to freeze it and plant a tree over it this spring....we need to replace the tree in our front yard anyway and everything I've read says placenta makes excellent fertilizer!
I was a month shy of my 25th birthday when my twins were born, and I'm 27 this time around.
What a wonderful birth story....your ds sounds so sweet! Congratulations and welcome to the world, Soraya!
Sounds like this is it! Lots of ELV's headed your way! Maybe I will let dh get one last round of nookie in......
