I agree with the above posters, sometimes you just have to swallow your pride and take a job. When I came back from my (comfortable, wellpaid) job overseas, the market had slumped in my industry and I couldn't find a good job. I took the first job I could get, in the Christmas shop of a department store. It was embarrassing, boring and my workmates were mostly morons but it paid the bills and in about three months I was able to find a much better job in a whole new industry.
My babies were born at 31 weeks and I had a lot of support from the staff in our NICU and their specialist LC. It was hard, especially at first because they were not able to nurse very often or for long, and even when they came home they had to be bottle fed after every breastfeed as they were not strong enough to take enough milk in just a breastfeed. As my supply of frozen milk dried up I started to stress and asked for a prescription of domperidone. I also bought some...
I took it for a week, my boob increased 2 cup sizes within hours of taking it. I think it helped with my supply too but I was exclusively pumping at the time, so it was hard to increase supply that way. All the usual advice (rest a lot, drink brewers yeast, the herbs etc) can help as well. Brewers yeast can be mixed with a little bit of hot water, then some cold milk and a raw egg if you like them. It tastes a bit funny though. Good on you for not giving in to your...
I have never really felt let-down, except maybe in the first few days.
I wish I had found this board this time last year, I had my twins Natalie and James at 31 weeks, after breaking my waters at 20 weeks. They are now one year old. Natalie has Scaphocephaly (something about her head, we're having it looked at in a month or so with a specialist) and Jamie is tiny (about 15 pounds/7kg) but aside from that they are pretty healthy. They have had a couple of colds and chicken pox (caught from their poxy cousin before we knew he was infected) and...
Okay, so I'm not really from Japan, but I lived there for a while and plan to live there again when the children are older. I speak Japanese sort of, and am going back to university to study this year. My children are fraternal twins who were born at 31 weeks and are now just over one year old. They are still small but hopefully won't have too many ongoing issues relating to their prematurity. My daughter's name is Natalie ('Dolly') and my son is James ('Jamie' or...
Nothing to do with the explorer, I used to live in Japan where I fell in love with Doraemon (the Robot cat from the future) and dorayaki (his favourite food, two small pancakes with red bean paste in between. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...2358339630.jpg
