They take the ovaries in a total hysterectomy, and I would only be having a hysterectomy so only my uterus would be taken out. My ovaries would stay. So, no need for hormone replacement.
Im with Abra, small steps! I night weaned B gradually. First I made a time in my mind, like "I will not nurse until 1AM". Then I slowly extended that time. I have never successfully cut out the 6AM feeding (we get up at 7). Perhaps keep a sippy cup of water by the bed?
Ahhh... I get it. Well, my mom's recovery time was good and she wasn't too uncomfortable, so that is good news.
Okay, I will try a time goal, then gradually increase it. We tried a sippy cup last night. He screamed like we were feeding him fire.post #223 of 4993/13/13 at 9:31amQuote:
Ha, him and Bettie might be best friends!
We started B on Zyrtect last week and for the first time in her life she is completely free of rashes. Its AMAZING stuff, and I'm so glad we decided to try it. Unfortunately we have to stop it today for a week because it will interfere with her allergy testing next week. But at least we know what will work for her.post #224 of 4993/13/13 at 10:46amGood luck with your night weaning. You got good advice from everyone!
I am exhausted. My Grandma drove away from her nursing home at 2p and didn't resurface until almost 7am this morning with her car in a ditch in the middle of nowhere. O.o And she has no recollection of leaving or being gone, so we know very little. Such a crazy freaking night. Her car is gone forever now!!!post #225 of 4993/13/13 at 10:52am
I'll try some of the supplementation that was suggested here. I'm not 100% ready to dive into BCPs yet.
Sora had her peds checkup today. She weighed 22lb 13oz and measured 33in tall! They remeasured her just to be certain of her height because she is off the charts now. I didn't doubt it. She can grab things off of our countertops when standing on the floor. I have to be vigilant about so many more hazards now. This kid can REACH!
The nurse today said that Sora is the easiest 15-mo old she's ever worked with. I replied with, "If only you knew what the doctor had to endure when Sora was an infant..." It's good to see her having done a complete 180 and being so chill with people. She was hamming it up. She even said the first 7 letters of the alphabet just to be a show-off.

Amanda, cool that she made pie! Nightweaning, I don't think you undid anything. I tend to think if you just cut out the first night nursing, you'll get there eventually. Like, if he normally wakes at 1 and you get him used to not nursing then he will start to sleep through that one so the 3 am is now the first, so he gets used to no milk at that time and starts sleeping through, etc. It's slower than Jay Gordon, but seems easy on babies and means only one hard wake up for parents per night. All that said, Shay had a night when he was starting to get sick when he tried to nurse from 2-5. He wailed every time I unlatched him. It wasn't pretty.post #229 of 4993/13/13 at 7:23pmpost #230 of 4993/14/13 at 7:27ampost #231 of 4993/14/13 at 8:35ampost #232 of 4993/14/13 at 8:36amQuote:
Preceded by days of fatigue, stress, not enough nutrition, or lack of nursing on the now-painful breast. First, engorgement or plugged ducts. Then pain, fever, feeling like a train hit you. I've had mastitis more times than I can count, and I hope you don't have it!!! If you have a plugged duct, get rest if you can, eat well, nurse as much as possible, place moist heat on breast, and get in shower and massage plugged duct (stroke from nipple outward) to break it up.post #233 of 4993/14/13 at 8:54amI get mastitis and plugged ducts all the time too. I'm just super prone to it. My breast always starts off a tad sore (like pms kind of sore) and then quickly progresses into a clearly infected looking warm, hard red lump. It's easily visible from the outside. The others have given you good advice. Just keep an eye in things and see. I only get a shooting type pain from hormones when I'm pregnant. Maybe it's a pms thing?post #234 of 4993/14/13 at 9:57amThread Starter
The obviously sore area with a lump is what tips me off to plugged duct. Never had mastitis fortunately, but I think you generally have the lump prior to it, right? If you can't feel a lump, I would venture a guess that it's something else, but would keep an eye on it to see if a lump forms. In the meantime, I would keep nursing frequently and apply heat.post #235 of 4993/14/13 at 2:01pmpost #236 of 4993/14/13 at 2:10pmpost #237 of 4993/14/13 at 2:31pmpost #238 of 4993/14/13 at 4:58pmThread Starterpost #239 of 4993/14/13 at 5:10pm
