I also feel sad that I didn't get my homebirths or my waterbirths as I'd planned. A dear friend of mine said to me after my first son, why didn't recreate a sort of water birth and have a lovely bath with my baby and reconnect with him and try and feel some healing. It sounds corny but I did and it did help.

I am curious! It must be good to get that closure too.

You are not a bad mama! Accidents happen, kiddos are squirmy

When I was pregnant with Seth (I got pg 1 month after she died, so it was still pretty raw and new), the ladies on the dd forum here asked me not to write about her. They said it was too hard for them to read it. So, I didn't write to them about it at all. i just bottled it up. I've learned since then that I can't bottle it, but I won't write about it unless I know it's ok. :
You all are the best, you know that?
Wow, that is absolutely beyond my understanding. Of COURSE you can and should talk about Emma here, just like you would your other kiddos

Jeez that was a lot of hugs!

So I'm in need of a hug myself actually. We did our WBV today wth the new ped. Rachel fell from 85th% to 50th% in weight. When I took her home I noticed how her chub has sorta disappeared All this refusing to eat at daycare is really catching up to her it seems. The ped was great - very reassuring. He said she's growing beautifully. And she is, I know that. She's 95th for height and 90th for head circ. I know that's great. And I know that DD1 followed a similar pattern of being tall and skinny. And I know that she's rolling and starting to sit on her own, and that DD1 wasn't even doing that much at this age. I just can't help worrying that all this hunger striking at daycare is bad for her : I was hoping my little chubber would continue being chubby and she's just not anymore.

Anyhoo. Nuff complaining - she is healthy and happy and that's what matters...

hugs to you Miss Juice
I've had a shi**y day here
got food poisoning (unusual for vegan food but there you go) and spent the day with diarrhoea, nausea and feeling revolting

I was out with 2 kids and dog (other kid was at school) and my tummy got crampy, mad dash to car, stuffed kids/dog in car, panicked look around but no loo insight and decided to make crazy drive back home................ I'll spare you the details but needless to say if I didn't have the kids with me and the dog, I'm sure I could have made to a toilet in time:

I never want to eat food from a takeaway shop again blurgh....

to top it off Laura has to work late tonight and I have to get all 3 kids fed (well the baby is easy) and into bed all by myself which I REALLY HATE doing....
ah well tomorrow has to be better right?:
post #247 of 1217
oh witt, I'm sorry. I had that last year and it took me several days for my body to really recover. Get some rest!

A squeeze for Juice!

Witt, I can sooo commiserate what it must be like to get 3 kids to bed. I cannot imagine and soiling your knickers, egads! I had that happen twice last year and it was truly awful.

Quag I am sorry to hear about Rachel's %ile plunge. I know how worrisome that can be, and on top of even having to deal with babe in daycare, you deserve some mega hugs. I think you are right though--she is healthy, happy and fully okay.

PancakeAmy I am really curious about your "kitchens". (ddddc)
post #250 of 1217
that ddddc has been there forEVER!

I can't even remember the context but some thread on mdc about breasts and their real purpose... oh, I think a mama was asking whether she should nurse in front of her older sons, and I said I thought it was not only fine, but important for them to see what breasts really are: kitchens. (My spouse always calls me The Kitchen when we have a baby in the house)

Speaking of biting....count me in on the big group hug we all need today....remember my "burn" that i asked about? Well, today my leg started to hurt a lot and it started getting red, so I went to the walk in clinic and the doctor said it looked more like a hobo spider bite than a burn to her!!! :
She said it is abscessing and infected!!!
So now I have to take cefadroxil for 10 days, but go back in if it still hurts in 3 days. I HATE ABX. AAAARGH!!!! But a quick google search of the hobo spider has made me afraid to not take the ABX. Last thing I need I surgery from a spider bite.
I guess I am most afraid of it getting worse and a doc telling me I need to stop nursing. I don't have insurance so the appt. cost $90 and the the prescription was $60
So sad and scared and uncomfortable.
What's with today?

post #253 of 1217

Juice. We've had a pretty rotten day here too. Seth was up every hour last night and I am just exhausted tonight.

It is hard when we feel that something is wrong. Doesn't matter if there is something wrong or not, when you feel that way there is nothing that can be done. Big fat

When one of my MWs (4 kids, youngest in her teens) came for DS' one week appt, he started rooting around on her, and she jokingly told him, "Sorry, sweetie, that kitchen is closed."
