Hey mamas! How are you all doing? Lots more babies being born lately!

Yes! He does have thrush :( My chiropractor saw a little in his mouth on Tuesday so I've been doing probiotics in his mouth since then and hoping that will help. I'm also still taking probiotics and trying to eat healthier too, so I can get my good bacteria numbers back up.
Lilac- I would rewash them, too. I also suggest coconut oil for peely skin!
Lorell- you are making milkshakes over there!! Judah has gained 15 oz in twelve days! I love it! He gets all grunty when he wants to eat :)
As far as cosleeping goes, Judah really likes to be next to me. He likes when I lay on my back and hold him in one arm.
AFM, I've been doing alright over here. I'm still processing everything that happened and I finally feel like I can see all of the pieces of our birth and what happened. I talked to my midwife today about how I feel like if my water broke on the first day of labor, that I would have had him that day. She agreed, and said that yeah, usually babies are born pretty soon after if the water breaks in labor. She totally missed what I am really feeling, (which I didn't really say full out- I'm still a bit nervous to, to her at least.) I really feel like I wasn't listened to when around 24 hours and again around 48 hours, I was begging her to break my water for me. I feel like I was talked out of her doing it because she had never done that before. I'm also having such a hard time even mustering up the courage to say this flat out to her, since I consider her a friend, too. Blargh!! Now that the medical bills are coming in and that Judah has been in so much pain during the last week, I'm really feeling like I need an answer as to why everything happened. I'm feeling like if she would have broke my water when I asked her to, (either time, really,) that I would have had him a few hours later and that I would have avoided the hospital delivery, the infection that followed, and all of his pain he's having now. What do you wise mamas think? Am I just looking for something to blame it on, or does this sound like a reasonable explanation to all of this? Also, during both of my girls' labors, my water was manually broken with them being born a few hours later. AND,(I may have mentioned this during the last two weeks already,) but my placenta lady told me that my bag was the strongest she had ever seen! Sorry if I'm dragging this on, but I'm having such a hard time with this.
