! you deserve a prize for delivering a three month old
kimberlylibby, that is beyond wonderful news. praise God indeed! He is so good!
i guess Christine really is in labour...hope things are going well for her.
jillybean, I held off on the pacifier for ds until he was eight days old, but I did use it. he just needed to suck allllll the time. he had colic, and the more i nursed him, the more miserable he got. i was over feeding him at one point til i started using the pacifier. it helped a lot because he was content, my nips were okay, and he wasn't *quite* as gassy. if you're well established it's ok, IMO.
i sent dh out for golf tonight because he's kind of driving me a little nuts...sits and just looks at me all big eyed and wary...like i'm going to birth the baby on the coffee table or something. he is beyond awesome right now when it comes to housework/back massages/Timmy care and he needed some time for himself. i was bad, though, and phoned him just as a joke. he didn't think it was very funny
poor dude. we've had 3 false starts already and last night even i thought i was in labour...but i wasn't.
i'm anxious to get started but still a little bit scared. still
about the fact that I'm 2 cm, because last time my water broke and we went in right away, and i was only 1 cm, with cntrx 3 minutes apart. so i feel like i've got a head start!
been chugging the rrl tea. to no avail. but i'm not too desperate because i don't see the dr. until sept 2nd now, and i'm pretty sure babe'll get here by then. have to go for fetal monitoring strip tomorrow b/c my doc is a little paranoid. yay.
