No time to post last week and was out yesterday so I'm catching up on all of the weekend posts today. Congrats to all who had good ultrasounds! Yea for Anna! - here's to days of bfing bliss
I am just hoping that I have copious amounts of milk this time -- last time I felt like the antithesis of a milk truck -- my pumping output when at work was always just barely enough for dd and I battled through a supply crash at 8 weeks due to an ill-advised depo provera shot. I feel I can work through any latch, cracking, yeast, etc as I had those problems with dd but I would love to actually leak this time! I'm sure that sounds nuts to women who deal with major leakage. FYI to first time moms - think carefully about post-partum birth control. My doc told me that either the mini pill or the depo shot would be fine with bfing since they are both progesterone only. Well, WRONG -- depo does diminish milk supply in "some" women. And, I had no interest in sex anyway so why was a I worried about bc? Duh
Ahhh, hindsight is truly 20-20.
So mid week last week I suddenly realized that if this bean comes at 34 weeks like dd (or heaven forbid earlier!) then I've only got 11 weeks to go.
I have many things to do between now and then so I have kicked it into high gear. Love that 2nd trimester energy. I bought fabric to make valances and pillow shams for dd's new bed and my bedroom. Also making a window seat cushion for dd's room and finally (after 2 years) getting around to organizing the changing table with baskets and liners (ala pottery barn but made by me at a fraction of the price
) So, I've been getting up well before dd and dh on days I am home to sew. Got two things finished over the weekend but have more to do. I also plan to paint the changing table white and paint a cupboard in my foyer. So much to do, so little time. But, I feel great and energized. Here's some energy fairy dust for anyone who needs it
Lots of baby movement happening here. Can feel some movements on the outside too. Dd talks to the baby which is super cute. Still no girls name. Got to work on that more seriously.
Wow, this was long. Hope I didn't bore anyone.
Have a groovy week.
