Thanks for sharing all your adorable babies!!!! They are so cute, and (so far) a bit chunkier than John. I guess he's going to take after his skinny daddy and brother (now almost three and only 26 lbs.). John is about 11 lbs. (about 4lbs over his b/w of 7.2). Will you all recommend some sites that are good for picture sharing?
I have a ton on my computer of Jamie and John, and would love to share a few!
The doctor said John's lungs were okay and it was just an upper-respiratory infection that would probably go away on it's own, so she recommended WAY MORE saline and staying upright a lot, and a humidifier and suctioning the nose and vicks vapor rub on his bib. I also take him in the hot shower w/ some vicks and that has also helped me (my sinuses are the worst for this cold). So we went back today so she could listen to his lungs b/c he is still coughing up a bunch. His breathing was a little fast, but his lungs still sound clear --- of course John didn't cough once DURING the appointment!
: He was scheduled for his 1st checkup on 5/31, so the doctor will have a good listen then to make sure he's completely better. I must say that I'm very impressed with her not prescribing a medicine just b/c I showed up twice worried. That is exactly the kind of doctor I want. How could I have gotten so lucky?
Midwife finally called to apoligize on Tuesday but didn't sound very contrite. She claims that someone else was responsible for calling people but had a family emergency. How lame! Anyway, we chatted for a while and I'm not mad anymore, so she's going to try to come up and see us at some point. I think I'm fine at this point, and John's under the doctor's care, but it will be nice to have closure, even if it means parting with that $350.
Need to starting thinking about birth control. After Jamie I had NOOOOOOO interest (poor DH) for almost 2 years and AF didn't return until he was 17 months, but John is a good night sleeper and less demanding in general than Jamie, so I need to think of something fast (if it's not already too late) ------- OMG!
Louma. It looks like we have kids about the same age. I know what you mean about listing to CIO discussions. I've been so relieved though in finally talking more to mothers in my own rural community who I would never have considered AP --- they are just "regular, non-crunchy" mommies, and it seems like well over 1/2 have some version of the family bed. I was thrilled to discover this, and felt so much more connected than I used to.
