I'm thinking lately about life after babies, and getting kind of stressed about it all. We live in a very expensive city, and it isn't sustainable for me to stay out of the work force for any length of time. But, the idea of dropping the kids off at day care so that I can go to a ho-hum job is depressing.
ETA to ask: Is it possible to have thrush and not have it noticeable in your baby?
I've been having pains deep in my breasts off and on for a few weeks now and my nipples can sometimes get sore (not when Sophie's nursing) when there's pressure against them like when I'm laying on my stomach. Other than that, that's the only symptom I have. Sophie has been nursing okay... but she does pull off and has been fussier and her weight gain has been very slow the past month. But she doesn't have white spots in her mouth, no diaper rash (but she has a nasty cheesy neck roll fat thing going on that I've been battling with).
So is it possible to be thrush? I was just at the drs yesterday for her wbv but never thought to mention this to him as I didnt connect it all together with the thought of it being thrush until late last night. Do I need to go back or can I just self treat?
