Me too Vaqiuta. There was a mom with a two week old at the LLL meeting yesterday-so tiny :)
You're really waiting till baby is here for car seat-will dh put it in? Mine would be so confused. I need him to tighten the seat belt for me.
Sparkle-well, you never know who will be offended by the hydration question :) My mw's ask me each visit and I drink so much, but days I'm having more ctx, I try to drink even more. I feel like a fish, lol.
Wow, that's amazing about the back muscles being tense for labor. Nothing to do with being tense in general expecting labor?
How are you feeling today from yesterday chiro? Any different? More relaxed or geared up?
100%-:( I hope you find a solution. Maybe the kids will be asleep.
pp/witch hazel-I saw about freezing the pads, or gel inserts for pad covers. I'm going to try freezing some long pads with witch hazel and chamomile tea. I wasn't very sore after ds2 (no tearing), but never know this time. Does the frozen pad effect absorption?
Here's what I've found on rrl and breastfeeding. Seems okay short term-like a few weeks pp.
Kellymom has brief info on it being mainly safe, short term. The main info page with it isn't up.
The nursing mother's herbal states for short term, it can boost supply, especially if taking last trimester, but should only be used the first weeks pp. Any longer can have an adverse effect of decreasing milk supply. It's hard to find an online link to it. I found one, but don't know if I can copy/paste the paragraph.
I have traditional medicine mothers milk tea, and it's not an ingredient, but there are others included that are contradicting, so who knows. It may be the small amounts, so doesn't matter much.
Can't find anything on LLL web.
Afm-not too much. Lots of pelvic pressure still, off and on. Some of the pressure in in my thighs, which I don't recall having before. He must really be pushing down. 36wks on Fri by lmp, but I want to get to the 29th I think it is for my peace of mind. I just have a feeling he's not going to be a 40wkr. Little tyke will probably make me eat my words, and be born on Thanksgiving, lol.
My shower is Sat :) No more of our registry stuff has been purchased. Why do people ask you to make a registry, if they aren't going to use it?
My friend brought over the nb prefolds I lent her, a wool cover, a kissaluvs sz1, and few other prefolds I can probably fold to infant size, not sure. So we're set for nb size, just need to get the infant sized ones, still nursing pads/pp pads, pump and storage.
Inlaws decided to come down when he's born! They're inlaws that need waited on/entertained-not going to happen with a nb. Maybe he'll come around their reservations.
