Well, I hope your doula will help provide breastfeeding support as well as a LC at the hospital, then once you're able to you can attend LLL meetings
I'm not sure any groups do this, but I just thought of it and it's a great idea, I wonder if any LLL groups to Skype? There has got to be moms in a similar situation that can't make meetings and Skype would be so handy! That's probably more of a dream..
Thank you! Yes it is very hard... My whole body hurts all the time, and my hips are permanently bruised... And it's lonely. But we have waited for this miracle for so long and I was told I'd never have biological children so she is totally worth it! I do have a great support system in my hubby, he works full time from home so he is here 24/7 to take care of me, feed me and rub my hips a few times a day. He also takes care of the house and our pets, all the grocery shopping and cooking. He's already super dad!
the rest of our family lives pretty far away but most are good about calling me often and visiting when they can so I don't feel so alone. DH also upgraded our cable while I'm stuck in bed so I have like20 movie channels as well as Netflix in my iPad, and lots of books on iBooks. I'm also taking a few courses online to just keep my brain active
it's rough and I can't wait til march 4th(when the cerclage comes out) its crazy how much I miss the simple things like cleaning and cooking and laundry LOL
And that would an awesome idea if the LLL groups did Skype
I also just found out that our hospital offers its child birthing classes online now
