Happy Birthday to B and I!!! Gena, I just read your birth story...absolutely amazing....you are a strong, amazing mama! What a powerful story. Thanks so much for posting the link!!
Maybe I should get on the no-sugar bandwagon...I have been craving it like it is air...can't be a good thing
And how do you know if you have thrush in your nipples? I have gotten random nipple pains lately, once a couple of months ago, and once last week, where its not external at all, but the initial latch on and milk flow are like daggers of pain...then once nursing is up and going, things are ok, unless she tugs or pulls on the nipple...but there is nothing external to see that "hurts"...is this thrush, perhaps?
Terran is wonderful! Thanks for the pics!!
I did something today that I haven't done in 6 months...I pumped milk! This weekend, Sat night to be exact, is the night that I have to be away from Molly. We decided that we aren't going to start any kind of night weaning, we aren't remotely ready yet, and neither is she. So, as of now, our plan is that she is just going to have a sh***y night with dad that night. I will leave loads of pumped milk for her, and DH will co-sleep with her and offer her milk and cuddles all night home till he brings her to me early in the morning where the event is. I can't think of any better plan, still, so that is what we are doing. I "know" she'll be just fine, I still feel frustrated cosmically that these events are conflicting, and I don't have a better solution. Argh...we'll see what happens. I have a sneaking suspicion that she will "punish" me when this is all over...it will be the first time that I haven't been there for her night-wakings, and I think she will be p***ed!!
Applecore: cool story about the birth! I would love to see that once!
Justmama: Grace sounds so "grown up"...in the toddler sense, of course! Molly is still pretty much all baby here.
I am also on Facebook...I'll have to start looking for some of you other mamas...sounds like I should just start on Rynna's page and search her groups!
