March Chat ****** IT'S OUR BIRTH MONTH!!! ******* - Page 18

post #341 of 389

currently i have no real plans of going anywhere by myself till maybe next week and i'll be 3 weeks pp and i'm doing pretty good.. still haven't even tried to pick up me two year old which is hard for me. but he's being fairly understanding.

 

Cael is sick right now i feel so bad for him. he has a really moucusy cough and a stuffed up nose. I barely slept last night cause i was trying to keep him comfortable and he just kept nursing on and off

Oh no!  I hate when they get sick so young.  Lucy's been sounding more mucousy, too, and we've had some virus going around the other kids.  So far it doesn't seem to bother her, though.

Can you believe, both girls slept through the night last night, in their little sidecar even?!  I got them down around 11pm and they woke around 5:30am.  Of course, I bolted awake several times to check on them.

heard a pop last night while BFing my son (wasn't my water). I started getting crampy and had some bloody show, but was tired and went back to bed. In the morning when I got up the cramps started again, but I sat down and took a nap. labor def wants to start, but I am alone with my DS and my SO is at work. He only works a few days a week and won't be home until late tonight. I def think the baby will be here in the next day or so though joy.gif

Any excuse for a nap is a good one. LOL

Good luck ladies!

So excited for those of you "popping!"

post #351 of 389

looks like we are having a bunch of babies getting in right at the end of the month here

post #352 of 389

It sure does! I can't wait to see the next group of little ones!

post #353 of 389

ELV Emma! I've been wondering when you were going to go. 

 

Sara, nap whenever and wherever you can. I went into labor at 8:45p and wish I would not have been working so much. Labored through the night at DH and I were EXHAUSTED by about 4am. SLEEP!!!

 

MLM- how in the world did you get TWO babies to sleep? Please share your secrets.

 

Harper and I ventured out of the house today. We went to church this morning. It was a well planned event. I nursed for 45 minutes, put the moby on, and went out the door. DH was already at church, so I had to finish getting ready with her all on my own. People swarmed us when we got to church (DH works there, so I guess there was bigger interest than if we were just members). She slept the whole time and people were amazed that we were out already. I was so proud! I don't know if I mentioned this or not, but last week our pastor announced that she had been born at home and there was a big gasp from the congregation. He followed up with "that was the plan!", so there were a lot of questions about the home birth this morning, too.

It was definitely a one-off event. :(

Way to go!!  People always freak about my home births, too.  It's just very uncommon around here.

So sorry to hear about sick babies. I think my LO is finally over his crud he caught from the older 2.

 

I think we lived on saline drops and letting the baby sleep on my chest while he was sick. Of course now he luervs to sleep on my chest, which is fine.. but not while I am trying to cook dinner! I think my sling is in the basement, and I am not supposed to go up and down the stairs.. and I cannot find the infant insert to my beco! argh! I did order a new one.. but it is not here yet. So for now, no baby wearing for moi.

 

I had a burn - from a thermacare wrap placed near my incision after my section. Well on Friday the surgeon who has been monitoring my (second degree 2nd level) burn decided it needed to be cut out! That was a fun Dr. appt. So now I have brand new stitches. My tummy looks a little like my cat's did after she was fixed from the vet. Except this incision is 4inches long and horizontal and right above my c-section incision. ugh. This month is my month of stitches!  Hopefully this is the last slicing that will happen to my tummy. Heck if I had known all of this I would have just scheduled a tummy tuck after my section! 

 

Other than my new stitches, everything else is going okay. I can pick up my 20 mo old, just not from the floor. That seems okay, it isn't painful. I think I can feel my internal stitches under my skin - like on my uterus.. it feels very odd. So far the only pain I have had now has been from the new stitches and new incision but my section seems like it has healed up beautifully. 

 

Asher has perfected nursing on his side in the bed! whoo! That means much more sleep for mommy! 

 

post #360 of 389

Oh Audmommy, I'm so sorry you had to be cut into AGAIN.  It sounds like such a nightmare.  :(  You sound pretty tough about it.

 

Aliy, I'm so sorry Cael is so sick.  That's horrible.  I hope he gets better soon.  You have sure had a rough three weeks.

 

Sara and VeganEmma, bring us some new babies!  I'm so excited!  ELV!

 

MLM, that's fantastic.  Hope you felt rested?  That's the problem with them sleeping - I'm always up to see if they're ok.  All 5 of us sleep in one room, so I'm always checking on everybody.  We'll move in July and hopefully have BR.  I can't even imagine - I'm so used to all of us sleeping on top of each other.

 

We've had a hell of a 3 week run, too.  I went to Target yesterday, leaving my youngest 2 at home with my mom, and the oldest was at school.  I have been over-doing for the last few days, and by the time I got home, I was in pain at my incision site and the blood was just pouring out of me.  Then, I laid down and realized I had to puke.  I was up all night barfing (and then out the other end, often both), and with the owie incision, heaving and pooping, I was on the verge of passing out.  Of course, everyone else slept like rocks.

 

We've been incredibly lucky - the moms from DS's co-op have brought dinner the last 3 nights, and if they hadn't, the kids would starve.  As it is, avoiding dairy, soy, gluten and eggs, I am starving.  I'm 13 pounds below pre-pregnancy weight at 2.5 weeks PP.  I often don't have any energy to fix myself something to eat, either.  And now, with the stomach virus, there aren't many things I CAN eat.  I would kill for some saltines!  But, of course, the gluten.  I tried to choke down some coconut water last night when I was getting really shaky nursing the baby, but couldn't.  I also couldn't drink Sierra Mist, so it's mostly been chamomile tea.  Ugh, I am so hungry.  I suppose I should go fix myself some chicken and rice.  I have Jell-O setting in the fridge.

 

It would be nice if the deluge of illnesses would just STOP!  Both kids are covered in head to foot in their Fifth Disease rashes, which are raised and red and itchy, and I feel so badly for them. 

 

Otherwise, still enjoying the baby.  My mom is nuts about her.  It would be nice if my mom would do something besides hold the baby and expect to be waited on hand and foot, though.  The dishes, maybe?  A little cooking?  Seriously.  I'm going to be SUCH a great helper when my kids have kids.
