I love you too, Katico
Its time for a TMI thread....weak stomachs need not read lol. - Page 12
So this is more on the mild side but...
I have always been one of those people who gets grossed out when moms kiss their kids on the mouth/face when they are messy or things like that.
But last night I totally smooched Jasper on the face while he was all covered in slobber...and then I stuck his paci in my mouth to hang on to it while I changed his diaper.
livacreature, how scary! I hope that you are feeling better.
And Trinket, right there with you...
And it turns out I do have a yeast infection on my clit, something I did NOT know could happen, and (drum roll please) it turns out that my clit has a small tear in it from labor. The fun just doesn't stop around here! I told my husband and could see the "oh god I'm never getting sex again" look pass over his face, poor man...
Wow, that is definitely crazy. I've never heard of a type 1 having zero basal needs before. Any chance you have one of the variants (LADA/1.5, MODY, etc.)?
In any case, I hope you are able to avoid further hypos like that. That's scary, for both you and your DH. I know the fear of having something happen with the babe when low.
I deliberately run a little higher when alone with a baby, and even an older child. Though my oldest has also been well and thoroughly drilled in how to call 911 if I am ever non-responsive. Fun moments in diabetic parenting.
Yep, I'm sure it is t1. Aurora is still eating every two hours start to start, usually for about 45 minutes, so I think that is why I'm going low so much. It is a pain in the butt! I had 120 carbs this morning to treat a low and get up to 80. I was glad I had breast milk pumped because little girl was hungry and I wasn't going to chance feeding her (though I have had to give her formula twice due to the same issue when I don't have anything pumped....meh, baby needs food one way or another).
I have my pp appointment scheduled for next week. I'm not really sure what to expect. I know it is their job, but I'm a bit shy about getting checked out down there with lochia still. Does anyone else have nosebleeds? I starting getting them towards the end of pregnancy and they haven't stopped. It made sense when there was the whole increased blood supply, but now I'm not sure what is behind them. Dehydration?
I went about a week with nothing and am now back to bright red bleeding...but Im also having a lot of new tenderness at the c-section site and its a bit pink..but Im not sure if its infection pink or pink from chafing..because my belly hangs so low.
:/ I dont want to call my OB for a false alarm and I have a check up with her next friday anyway....
So relieved that I'm not the only one still bleeding. Saorise, I'm seriously jealous of you and getting it on with your DH. Lucky Ducky.
I've been reading this entire thread, but never had anything really to post. Now, I still don't have anything good to say, but that is not going to stop me. I'm totally one of those mamas who kisses her baby's face- on the mouth even. DH thinks it is gross, but last night, he was leaning over her and nuzzling her with his nose, and she started sucking on it. I nearly peed myself laughing (which unfortunately doesn't take much). I thought it was super cute though, but talk about nipple confusion.
So how do I tell if Im still having Lochia bleeding or if this is my period...because at this point Im thinking that either something is wrong or I have started my period.
I never had much bleeding at all after the c-section, maybe some light bleeding for the first week and then nothing for two weeks, now, 5 weeks later, I am bleeding through several "super plus" tampons a day and its bright red.
Im ticked as hubby and I were just getting back into the swing of things sex wise... :(
Im going in for my 6 week check up this Saturday, Im going to be so fucking pissed if something wrong, nothing has gone right pregnancy/birth wise so far so an infection would just be the cherry on top of the shit sundea :(
My bleeding had tapered off at about 2 weeks, with only small amounts of yellowish discharge. It came back slightly after a short but very hilly walk at 3 weeks, but just enough for a pantiliner. Then last night DH and I... well, not DTD, exactly. since the thought of penetration makes me cringe. Shall we say "manual stimulation"? And now I have bleeding again. Not bright red but red. Boo. I was enjoying going pad-less.
