i've been lurking for a bit here...
first, the pain relief for labor question: i would recommend hot water (baths, showers) and massage!
... i can't believe she'll be 2 weeks old tomorrow!
i'm still having a bit of bleeding but not a lot, and it's starting to turn brownish-red. w/ my first it lasted 6 weeks; i'm wondering if i'll go that long again.
nursing is going so wonderfully.
after the experience i had w/ my son i was mentally prepared for the worst, but it's so lovely. and she eats so much! i'm still in awe that MY BODY IS MAKING FOOD FOR HER!!!!!
that's just so cool!
we've been going for more walks... she loves being in the sling.
and so far, i've only gotton positive comments about it (which really suprises me, considering how non-crunchy the area is).
i've also picked up photography again (yay!) and am working on a photography site... http://klothos.com/gallery/
right now, all i have there are pictures of my little ones.
they're fun to take pictures of...
i haven't taken her in to the dr yet... i was planning to but 1) we're delaying vax's anyway, 2) we have no health insurance right now and i haven't wanted to hassle w/ the CHDP (government) program, and 3) she's perfectly healthy. i don't feel like making that change... kwim?
eta ~ i'm loving our cloth diapers! especially our kissaluvs ~ so much easier for night changes...
also, eta ~ she's been smiling and giggling so much! it's incredible!
