My thoughts and virtual hugs are with her. candle.gif

Becky, if your annual exam is coming up - sure, I'd mention your concerns to the doctor for the heck of it. I personally wouldn't be too concerned, though, if you haven't had a history of cysts before and if this is a first-time kind of thing postpartum. My ovulation pain was much worse during my first several regular cycles postpartum. It totally sounds like what you're experiencing. I have never had a cyst that I've been aware of, and I've had a lot of workups over the years. A radiologist once thought he saw a teeny tiny cyst on an ovary once when I had a full abdominal CT scan, and I was so freaked out that I went for more tests to be sure. Turns out there wasn't even a cyst there. I wish I hadn't had so much unnecessary radiation and expenses pertaining to all of that, but I guess it was good to ease my mind at least.

So much loss lately. Another friend from MDC who was TTC with Sara and me lost her son a month ago. Following her journey for so long, it felt so close to home. It feels like I hear about another loss every few days. So sad.

It's so hard to lose a baby and I didn't realize how many people it happens to until it happened to me trying to conceive my first daughter.  Almost every woman I know told me a story about their miscarriage and I was so surprised how frequently it happens.  What a sad time for her and her family.

 

We live in a house my husband built never thinking we were going to have a family.  I live on a second story (which sucks because I have to lug everything upstairs), over a garage (which sucks because my house always smells like a garage), and there are dangerous stairs everywhere.  I think our living space is about 900 sq ft and it is an open floor plan with two bedrooms and a teeny bathroom.  We just moved DD1's bed into our room because she was coming in every night and DH was getting up to go sleep in her room.  I knew there must be a better way so we are all sleeping in the same room.  Guess what?  Everyone has been sleeping much better!  Audrey is even sleeping better and waking up less.  We are building a new house next year and I'm going to make sure we have plenty of space!  With one kid, space wasn't much of an issue but with 3 girls living in the house, we need more bathrooms!

Jill, I knew pregnancy loss was common, but losing born children is hopefully not that common.

Our house is also an upstairs, but I like it quite a bit. It doesn't smell like a garage, which probably helps.

It's quiet around here. What's everyone doing? I'm getting ready to finish the last 8 hours of my 26 hour work weekend. I'm so excited about being off tomorrow. I haven't seen Conner since Friday morning, literally. And DH is also off tomorrow after working 19 hours this weekend. We're going to see "This Is 40" tomorrow. I heard it's really good, so I can't wait. smile.gif

Nicole, lol, I'm at work. I only work every other day so I can see the kids. The long days are really hard on Sara and the boys, so I can't do them back to back.

UGH I'M SO FRUSTRATED!!!! hammer.gif My friend is in labor 45 minutes away and I'm supposed to be at her homebirth but DH flew out to Vegas for a convention today of all days and I have nobody to watch Sora! AHHHHH. She doesn't even need "watching" because she's asleep in her crib for the next 10 hours! I want to scream. I missed this friend's last birth by 18 minutes because she went so fast, and I was so excited to be there for this one. gloomy.gif Sora's daycare provider said I could bring Sora over to her house, but I turned her down because I didn't feel right waking Sora up - disrupting her sleep - and driving her over there... THIS JUST SUCKS

Oh, maybe I misunderstood.  I thought it was a pregnancy loss.

Jill, I think we were talking about both. Ash brought up a friend who lost a full term baby. Jaimee brought up a pregnancy loss and the friend I mentioned lost her newborn a month ago. For the past month I have heard about so much sadness and death between winter affecting the elderly and the shooting, I think I have been more sensitive to it right now but it feels like too much loss of life.

To change the subject completely, we have some mother ease fitteds that give Soren eczema. Is it most likely the fabric? Or residual detergent or ammonia? They don't smell or anything and they don't bother Shay.

I agree that there has been an incredible amount of loss just all around lately. I can fathom the thought of losing my parents, grandparents, friends. Those are things that are almost guaranteed to happen. ....but losing a child is something all together different. My heart has just been aching for my friend, for days now.

I'm sorry, Joanie! I missed a friend's birth last week. She had her baby 2 weeks before her due date and I was supposed to go to Kalispell tomorrow, when she was 39 weeks. I had promised her 8 months ago that I'd be there to photograph her birth. :/ Babies come when they want and babies sleep when they want. hug2.gif

Joanie, I missed the birth of my best friends first child because she called and told me she was in labor on April Fools day and I thought she was joking...

What material are the fitteds made out of?  Some babies are more sensitive to certain fabrics, certainly, but I am assuming it's a natural fiber?  Or is it like a cotton/poly blend?  Most babies are not sensitive to natural fibers, but can be sensitive to the increased wetness against the skin due to the lack of wicking natural fibers have.  You might have success if you line them with fleece rectangles so that the liquid gets wicked away from the skin.  It also wouldn't hurt to strip them.  Again, some babies are more sensitive to detergents and detergent build up.
