I went to the doctor for manipulations and craniosacral stuff last week and it's just now starting to get better, and I have another appointment today.
I finally felt well enough to take a walk yesterday but had to put Ion in my neighbour's stroller because it hurts too much to carry him. Hubby can't ever because of scoliosis. He was very tolerant of it until the last few blocks and he got to see ducks for the first time. Kam made fun of me because I say ducks say 'quin' and not 'quack'.
Kris, thank you so much for sending my SIL those herbs, you are one awesome lady!
Hope you feel better soon!
I have to ask where "quin quin" comes from. I love that stuff! Dh is from MA, and we're always teasing him about the funny stuff he says, like "downcella" instead of basement.
lunabelly - Was the vasectomy hard on your dh? My dh is thinking of getting one (although I don't want him to because I don't know if I want to be through growing a little being and birthing ...) and he thinks it would be very hard on him and my in laws try to convince me to get a tubal because we "don't need anymore children" and it "is easier for a woman to have a tubal than a man get a vasectomy" I think it is just a matter of them not wanting their son to undergo any type of surgery.
My friend (who is a doula and has attended hundreds of births) had a tubiligation and said she had a new understanding of what it was like to have a c-section. I think generally it is much more painful than a vasectomy. Dh had special circumstances, though, because he'd had other testicular issues, so he had to have the general anesthesia and it had to be done at a surgery center instead of the doc's office. It took about three hours, and then he slept the rest of the day and the next. After about a week he was back to himself.
Another friend said her husband walked out of the doc's office after his vasectomy, and it was like nothing had happened.

What I'd give for four hours-- or even three! We're still at two hour stretches. I don't even think that's a stretch. It's more like a shrug.
Anybody else have a spitting baby? I always try to say things in the positive-- "be gentle" instead of "no hitting," but I can't think of a positive way to ask him not to spit. "Keep your tongue in your mouth, please," is about the best I can do.
