Hi All!
My little guy was born September 21st weighing 9 pounds, 8 ounces!
My labor was horrible! 26 hours total of joyous bliss wink1.gif They tried doing an epidural and after 6 "pokes" the doctor couldn't get it. So I had to go natural. I was 6 cm for over 8 hours so they finally did a C-section. Another doctor tried to give me the spinal with 4 "pokes" and they were unsuccessful with this as well. They had to put me under general anaesthetic to deliver my son. Needless to say, my back was SO bruised it looked like a got thrown out of a moving vehicle!
BUT I got the greatest gift of all, my amazing son. He had to be in the NICU for 4 days due to low blood sugars. Seeing him with all the tubes, IVs and monitors was the hardest thing to witness knowing I couldn't take his pain away.
At 2 weeks old, he developed tummy troubles and his doctor still hasn't come up with a diagnoses. We see a paediatrician this week, so fingers crossed we will have some answers.

Thanks for everyone's responses smile.gif

The paediatrician thinks it's a dairy issue. I was off dairy for over 2 weeks and we didn't see much of an improvement with my son. We had to take him to the hospital last week because he was screaming in so much pain for over 4 hours. They recommended only breast feeding once in the morning and all the rest of his feeds use a soy based formula. So far, so good.

I LOVE having this group! orngbiggrin.gif
