Julia, your supply will be fine. Maya often goes 5 hours during her first stretch at night, and still nurses every 2 hour during the day no problem. Glad your little man got some good sleep! (oh, and I've done the dream feed too, when I want to nurse Maya before I leave for work but she's still sleeping. She barely wakes up and passes right back out, so you could try that also).
Rachel, so sorry for your trials at the hospital all night. Yuck! And hopefully your hubby will get some better numbers to make it more do-able for you guys.
We saw Knocked Up sometime over the summer, when I was nice and pregnant. I loved it!
|I also liked that it was a very "real" seeming birth, IYKWIM - there was actually a shot of the baby crowning. Definitely not something you see in most movies that have a birth in them!
Although it was a bit unrealistic that the main character managed to get a full waxing done before the birth, huh??
Welcome Aileen! Come back and hang out with us when you have time!
Re: more kids. I think we'll try again in a couple years, when Maya's around 2. I have this irrational fear of hitting age 35 and immediately being considered "higher risk" or something. Although, I found out when Maya was born that I have this weird antibody in my blood that could only be caused by being exposed to someone else's blood -- i.e. through miscarriage/pregnancy or a transfusion. I had a miscarriage before Maya, but it was very early, before a heartbeat, so could that have been it? I didn't have any bleeding with Maya, so I don't know. Anyway, this condition means I have to be followed by a perinatologist in my next pregnancy anyhow. Blah. I'm going to miss my midwives so much! Anyway, I'm just babbling.
