Congrats Natasha! I just knew you were!
Yeah, my parents didn't have the best reaction in the world (well mostly my mom) but I still couldn't wait to tell them. My mom was kind of like "well, if that's what you want, I'm excited for you"
I think she thinks I'm gonna go nuts with 2. Thanks for the vote of confidence mom. SHe keeps saying things like, "you won't be able to do THAT when the new baby comes." Gee mom, I don't know if you remember, but I have had a baby! I know what it's like! Of course now I have my older child as well so I know it will be harder, but golly, I think I'm doing a pretty good job right now and I think I can handle it.
My MIL on the other hand was superexcited. She was the first person I told after ds and dh. Of course she has been bugging us for another ever since ds1 was born! She is so excited she has no problem watching ds while I take naps (although usually he naps with me), and helping me out around the house. I guess she would have done that anyway, but now she's happier about it!
All you nursing mamas, how are your nipples holding up? Mine are very very sore. Sometimes when ds latches on it feels like a knife sticking in me! But after that it's usually ok. I'm hoping it gets better, but as long as it doesn't get any worse we'll manage.
I'm planning on ordering "Adventures in Tandem Nursing" as well. I looked for it at the library today, but they didn't have it.
: Nor did they have Birthing from Within or the Sears Pregnancy book. It's a huge library with 11 floors!! You'd think they'd have at least one of those. OH well.
Hope all you mamas are feeling good!
