My dd was born at 33 weeks with an emergency ceserean and spent 25 days iin the NICU.  After having breastfed three babies it was very hard to let her have a bottle.  But in order to get her released as soon as possible she needed to have a bottle and get off the tube (they said).  I too was concerned about nipple confusion.  I brestfed when I could but they didn't really let me breastfeed without her getting milk through  the tube at the same time til the last few...
Just checked in on this thread.  Yeah I thought the rice and banana comment from the doc was a little wierd too, but now that I look back I think it may have been due to my comment about indigestion and trying to find out what was triggering it and then adding food a little at a time.  I was a little sensitive about the weight gain and may have been taking her personally.  This last visit I gained 4 more pounds in 2 weeks.  She didn't make any comments, thank God.  And I...
I purchased 18 newborn DSQ fitteds from greenmountaindiapers.com  They are super cute and should last 6-10 weeks depending on baby size.  I have 3 wool covers in small and a few other covers that should work.  I have usually used disposables for the first few weeks til baby fits into small fuzzibunz of which I share an inventory with my sisters.  So I have about 1 1/2 dozen of those and 2 dozen small prefolds for the next stage.  Along with a few dozen wipes and a wipes...
I was gaining about a pound a week and was feeling okay about it but last checkup I had gained 6 pounds in 2 weeks!  So at 29 weeks I had gained 29 pounds already.  I started out a  little heavier than usual and I am feeling big...!  I was a little annoyed at my doctor who said I should try a rice and banana diet and use a treadmill.  I was like uh-no.  I'd starve and I hate treadmills, I feel like a hamster, I'm good.  I miss my midwife who weighed me only once in a...

My fundus has been measuring about 4 weeks ahead.  I am 5'0 and this is my fifth pregnancy.  Doc thought twins or earlier date, ultrasound said 1 good sized baby with the due date I had thought.  I guess the uterus just stretches faster with the more pregnancies.  That and being short and not the tightest muscles anymore.  : )
My wish list: a wool pad for the family bed, big enough for mine and babies leaks diapering supplies: 2 dozen fitted newborn diapers, 2-3 small wool soakers, some doublers and fleece liners, 2 dozen small prefolds, (I still have small diaper covers), 2- 3 dozen wipes, diaper pail liner, diaper pail a few basic baby toiletries (soap, clippers, diaper cream, small soft brush) wool/silk/cotton baby clothes (hats, sleepers, shirts, etc..) 2-3 nice wool...
  If a family needs help, lets help them!   
I am so feeling this too.  Last week I thought I was in the clear, I felt good and happy and my stomach only hurt a little. I cleaned the house, scheduled apointments, had a sex drive,  even cooked for my family (woohoo). Then this week I feel awful again.  Hard to eat, nothing looks good, I have to force myself to eat cuz I know if I don't it gets worse.  And I'm exhausted and moody again (and sex reminds me of how I got this way).  But at least I know its GOT to get...
