I know I haven't posted much lately, but I wanted to let you know I'm thinking lots of positive thoughts for Anna and Harrison!  Congratulations on all the new babies--I can't keep up with it all!  


Much love,

Sending tons of love and prayers for baby Anna! Sending comfort and strength to you, Melany <3

update: all we know right now is that Harrison's bowel isn't twisted which is great news. He had a poopy diaper yesterday after drinking the contrast for his xray. That sounds like good news, but we haven't gotten to speak with a dr. to find out how good that is.
Last we heard they will be giving him an enema today to see if there is just meconium blockage. If the enema doesn't produce the results they want then whatever the problem is will require surgery. I will update again as soon as I know something.

And Lennox is doing great and nursing like a champ! I'm producing enough colostrum to pump a good amount each feeding for Harrison

WLL, that sounds promising. Hope the enema yields the results they're after.
Well done Lennox for BFing and you for pumping. Go mama!

I would be so happy if the enema was all little Harrison needed. I wish I was in Seattle so I could come and shower you with pampering, melany!!!! I got a staph infection in my boobs from being in the hospital 8 days after DD was born when our mom had a brain anneurism unexpectedly. The whole situation was a total mess! Wash your hands constantly!!! Don't touch your boobs or vagina if you didn't wash your hands. Take tons of emergen-c drink powder, too. Oh, I am with you in spirit!!! You can do this. You are amazing!

Please pray for me and baby. I am due March 1st. They tried to induce me yesterday didnt really advance me very much. starting to dilate cervix is soft,  50% effaced.  I have borderline high blood pressure sometimes and GD.  I was at the hospital yesterday for a prostaglandin, they released me, came back and they did pitocen for several hours, a little change, but not alot and baby not moving down. This is #5 God willing  4 natural vaginal births before this.


So I guess I am having contractions, but they arent hurting as bad as the pitocen ones. Its kind of discouraging, but trying to pray about it..

thinking of you, herbsgirl.

Oh Ellie, poor little Harrison! It sounds like something is passing through so hopefully all will be well. Thinking of you guys x

HerbsGirl, are they inducing you early because of the GD? I guess you've exhausted herbal options by now? I'm sure the prostaglandin and pitocin will kick in shortly, sounds like something is happening smile.gif Good luck.
