DH made me dinner last night, very sweet of him, but the 2 types of hot sauce plus sesame chili oil he put in it have not been sitting well with DS.
And my MIL arrives next Wednesday (day before my due date), so instead of us having someone to help us out right now, DH is running around trying to get ready for her visit. He is trying hard not to leave me alone with DS and the dogs for too long, but it's a bit challenging right now. I'm sure it will be easier when I start babywearing. Unfortunately the adjustable pouch sling was too big for me. I will probably try the mei tai next but I want him here to help me. I think the ring sling will also work but it needs washing, I bought it slightly used and the perfumed detergent it was washed in before makes me sneeze.
Other than that, things are going well with DS. We are also swaddling to nurse which helps a lot, and I found that if I start things flowing with hand-expression first, he latches on much better. Yesterday I started having leaking from the other side while nursing, feels odd, will take a while to get used to all the changes. Nipples are getting pretty sore now.
J. Jones, finally feel up to doing some transverse ab work to try to work on my diastasis as well. Got out for a walk with the dogs yesterday which was nice. It's been hard feeling so immobile. I wish I could say I felt like getting on my bike but I am so sore I have no idea when I will actually want to.
Proto, things have actually been moving better for me since I stopped taking the stool softener. I'm eating lots of fiber too which helps.
