Hey ya'll, I'm right there too. I've been trying to cut all sugar, dairy, wheat, condiments, yeast, etc. I've lost 5 lbs so far. I have self-diagnosed myself with CANDIDA. Ugh! The Wholeapproach site is very usefull and contain A LOT of info. I have been battleing this since Oct. and feel I'm on the right track. ~mama2jonah~ I'm CathyB. on the wholeapproach boards. I'm a newbie there. I haven't ordered the program yet, but will after vacation. I'll look for...
I am hoping ya'll can help me. Two nights ago I was going downstairs to nurse the baby and WHAM!! I ran into a wall and broke my ring toe on my left foot. OH MY LORD did that hurt!!!! I knew right away I broke it, it hurt too bad not to be. A few hours later, after falling asleep nursing the babe, I looked at the toe. It was major swollen and starting to turn purple, it was a bit crooked too. I hobbled around a bit, then taped it to my other toe. That helped a...
Mine screen name isn't very origninal. I live in St. Louis and my initals are C J B. It was the only thing I could really remember. I signed up when I was prego, so I was not about to trust my prego brain with anything too hard
Unfortunatly, I was adopted and my Mom didn't know about supplemental feeding systems. Quite main-stream my mother was. she frowns upon me BFing my dd#1 for 13 months. She asked when I will wean dd#2 and I said "whrenever Josie decides" That put a wadin her panties!
We own Disney videos. We started to collect them even before dd#1 was born. I grew up with "The Wonderful World of Disney". DD#1 likes some of the movies. 101 dalmations is one of her favs. She likes to watch ones with animals and she also likes Toy story, but not as much now. (She's real into Halloween stuff now?!?!?) A note on strong female roles . . . have any of you all seen Mulan? VERY strong herione. It is one my dh and my favarite movies of all times. ...
On my right hip bone I have Celtic knot work. It's blue and green. Both my OB's thought it was a throwing star. I got it right before I concevied my first child. My Mom hated it. My PIL were shocked too. They are also Jewish. My dh said a Jewish person couldn't be burried in a Jewish cemetary if they had a tatoo. It is forbidden to adron oneself that way. Whatever! I love mine and someday want to get another in the small of my back. A rune perhaps. My mom asked...
I was THIS close to being "Blodwyn". It's a good Welsh name. I would have died of embarssment had my Dad has his way. My Mom, the voice of reason stepped in. I was going to be Cathy or Amy. I was named Catherine, but my Mom only named me that to get Cathy. She hates the name Catherine. I still haven't figured that one out yet: My girls have very traditional names. I didn't know how popular Emma was when I named her. She is named for a very dear friend of the...
Like Missgrl said, talking about yourself is enforcing the third person. My dd #1 always refers to herself in third person. She has been doing this for a long time. But I always am saying "mommy has to . . ." and when I need her to do something it's "Emma this or that" She hears her name a lot. But the funnist thing is when she says "Emma do it myself" She is mixing tenses!! I know she will learn, but it's so cute right now . . .
My second daughter was 9 lbs. The hosp wanted to do blood tests on her because of her weight. She would have to have three in a few days time. I refused. My ped was right there with me. She said I just needed to look for shaking. That was the big sign of sugar imbalance. Josie was fine. Ate like a horse. She still does. I never had any proplem with not enough milk. I also had a nomedicated birth and had no tearing at all. My doc was great. He stretched me...
The biggest change was having dd#1. She made me put my life into perspective. I was an owner of a small gift store in Ohio. I had run it well for 4 years, but then I had dd. My life fell apart. Looking back, I had major post-partum depression. I didn't want to go to work. I didn't want to deal with my husband, who was growing more and more distant. I just didn't want to do anything at all, except sit and stare and nurse my dd. We went on vacation and he laid...
