How nice to come home and read all these nice and actually upbeat posts! Wow.
Mar, I am soooo dreading those afterpains. I had them really bad after my 2nd- wanted to puke every time he nursed. ugh. This time I bought an after ease tincture, but will not hesitate to pull out the big guns (i.e. allopathic meds).... I am generally not a pill taker, but I found those pains to be so much worse than labor AND, really ruined my first few days with a new babe.... so like ST, I'm into drugs for that if necessary.
And thank you for recognizing the unfairness of you going before me (lol!). Your brief dessription of your labor is inspiring though and I hope to follow you (all) in baby land soon!!!
Ann, I wanted some fancy diapers (after always using prefolds for my boys) and bought a bunch of fuzzi bunz as per the recommendation of a few mamas I've helped with babies. I wanted to have 1 kind, because I found before that I'd favor certain diapes and then not use the others. So we'll see if we like them (only bought smalls) and go from there. Someone did send me a whole bunch of used unbleached prefolds that are so soft already.... we'll see how they get used.
the name. Geneva is sweet. I'm sure you'll eventually catch up on sleep.... someday!
Dh did call me as soon as he realized his cell phone was here. He's checking in. Poor guy is a wreck already, so I can't really be mad at him. AND, truly nothing is going on with me (other than a little more discharge- no biggie).
My mom bought me some lingere (cotton and practical) to wear pp to make me feel good. I wanted to try it on and make sure it fit (as good as I can right now) and we just couldn't stop laughing at how absurd I looked.
So hanging in there are
