So much to say...I'm going to try to at least start!

 

Wissa - baby girl is amazing! Congratulations! Your updates make me smile so much. I am always thinking back to when we first got pg finally finally and now these beautiful babies... How wonderful to hear you a much better experience with the c/s! And your DS is too sweet. I think your supply should be fine at this point with supplementing, but I never had supply issues so I don't tend to sweat them. It's funny, everyone seems to think I'm a hero (or crazy) to be EBFing twins but honestly I'm just lazy! I mean, I totally believe in it etc.etc. but personally I find it sooo easy and bottles so hard. I am totally impressed that you are out & about. Today will be my first time taking the babies out by myself, yikes. (I have topick up DS from school.) Eek about bland foods. Do you have an LC you can ask about it? Maybe she will outgrow it by the end of the "4th tri"? How are you adjusting to being a mom to 2? Getting any sleep?!

 

kparker - Congratulations on your little gnome! How sweet is that hat & all his other beautifully made clothes? Sorry to hear about all the stressful parts of your l&d but seriously, good for you! BF really is hard in the beginning. Usually at 6w pp or so you start getting payoff IME..I hope that is the case for you!

 

...I'm going to post this for now & be back to write more as soon as I can!!


Me + DH + DS ('07) + after a long and bumpy road, thrilled that our twin boys are finally here (DS2 & DS3, '12)

Monkey, Wissa and kparker, AWWWW SO CUTE!!

 

Wissa, i ended up having to give up dairy for my baby girl so i totally know what you mean. I used to drink a gallon of milk a week! I miss it so much. haha it has been 5 months, my husband, my mother and his mother are BEGGING me to stop pumping for the babies because they think it's exhausting me. Which it is. But I still want to do it so I'll do it until I don't. I won't feel bad when I don't pump anymore but I'll continue until my heart and brain tell me it's time to stop. (Colin was never a good latcher so I couldn't breast feed both so i've been pumping since the beginning)

 

Gozal, can't wait for the update!

 

Monkey, ugh I totally get what you mean about STILL being jealous about announcements. I think it's because I think that the people probably didn't have to go through what we did in order to get pregnant. But then I look at my little babies and all is well again :o) But that initial jealousy...totally understand that!

 

Cait and Sila still looking forward to your BFPs. They are coming soon!!

 

Crazy here but just wanted to let you all know that I was thinking of you/ :oD


Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!

Gozal - I wouldn't say I'm really out and about...Church, DS to from preschool, a couple of trips to the grocery store & doctors office.  It's hard to get out, but I have to or PPD will set in with me.  Oh, and I actually did take baby & DS to the park the other day when the weather was nice.  We couldn't stay long, so of course DS had fit when I told him it was time to go.   I do think your crazy to BF twins, but ya know whatever works!  I can't imagine BF twins, but I can see where if BF comes easy for you it could be easier than bottles.  The cost of formula for two would be insane and if you don't have a dishwasher you would spend the the time you weren't BF washing bottles.  

 

(That said bottles are way easier for me because I have a dishwasher, it would allow me to get out more & someone else can give the baby a bottle while I sleep.)  ;)    

 

How is your DS doing?  Did you make it on your first outing with the twins?  Is your MIL still hanging out?

 

Rena - Yep. Milk is on my list of Do Not Eat and I am milk person too!  I have actually started trying new foods to see what happens.  I had some ice cream the other day and nothing...   I did read that some babies will out grow the milk thing at 3 months or 6 months...  Pump until your heart tells you to stop, but know your babies are fine either way!  My DS did just fine on formula -- never sick (maybe because he got the BM to start out?).  I pumped for a while with DS, but I could never pump a lot and after a while it didn't make any sense to continue.  This time I'm not interested in pumping.  Maybe I'll try later when the baby will hopefully go longer between feedings???

 

& I agree I do still get the jealous thing about other women being pregnant.  I totally don't get it because I really am happy for them and wouldn't wish IF on anyone.

Hi RCR - I still try to stalk you...

 

AFM - O.k. I'm feeling like a bad mother or something.  For whatever reason I just don't like breastfeeding.  Technically breastfeeding is working and I'm not sore or anything most days, but I just can't seem to enjoy it.  I don't know that going to bottles would give more time, yet...   I really just don't know what to do!!  I feel guilty for going to the bottle and guilty for breastfeeding out of guilt.   Ugh...Maybe I'm just sleep deprived.  

 

Oh and baby girl will not be put down to sleep.  However, I can put her down when she is awake and she is very happy to sit, coo and look at things.  I'm so confused.

wissa - I don't like breastfeeding either. The pain has subsided somewhat, but I just despise it. I wish I didn't. Guy's gaining wonderfully and LOVES the time we have together but I can't seem to stop counting the minutes until he's all done and back to sleep and off of me :(

I don't love nursing, either. It's not so much the actual act (at least not now that we got the whole lanolin/disposable nursing pad causing dermatitis thing sorted out) as just the time factor - it seems like all I ever do. I do like the huge grin he gets on his face sometimes right before he latches on, and sometimes I do like the sleepy nursing baby snuggles. And I'm glad he's gaining and so strong and healthy. He still can't take a bottle, and seems to have actually moved on to rejecting it on principle, which is pretty frustrating considering the amount of money we've sunk into speech therapy. I still feel very blessed that he is successful at breastfeeding, since most babies with his issues struggle with both breast- and bottlefeeding.

 

Alas, he also has his first cold, which he got from dh. Of course that had to coincide with a roadtrip to a friend's wedding. Yeah, not a fun weekend at all. But at least he's back to eating somewhat normally!

Thanks ladies it's nice to know I'm not the only one struggling with the "freedom" issues that come with breastfeeding.  We are still going for now...My goal was only for 6 weeks.  I know lofty goal, but I feel like I've done something because I've made it to 8 weeks. ;)

 

More later...

 

Monkey - I'm sorry your lo is not gong along with your plans to intro the bottle.  I gave little girl one as soon as most say it's ok to do so without harming your milk supply.  I've been told if you wait too late the babies get stuck in their ways...They know what they want!!  It is awesome that your baby bird has done so well BF with the tongue tie issues.  

 

kparker - I understand exactly you what mean by watching the clock.  It's best in the first weeks to just throw the clock out because as soon as he hits that first growth spurt he'll be attached 24/7.   Set a small goal and if by that time you still feel this way maybe try giving a bottle.  I'm not saying don't BF...I'm just saying don't do it the point that you can't enjoy your baby.  If mommy's not happy no one is happy.

He's here! I will post a longer birth story later, but Charles (Charlie) Marlin Jones was born at 8:46pm on 12-12-12. 6lbs 8oz and 21.25in long. We were at home for 36 hours of labor. After four hours of pushing and no progress after the last two hours, we had to transfer to the hospital where he was delivered 20 min later after a small episiotomy. Not thrilled about the cut or the transfer, but almost all of our labor was at home and we had a natural, drug free birth. It feels a little bittersweet that we didn't get our home waterbirth, but we were at home for 99% of the birth with my wonderful midwife and doula, and I am happy with the experience as a whole. Breastfeeding already going wonderfully and we're all doing great!

Congrats! He is beautiful! He must be a skinny little boy, being so long and light. Enjoy holding him while he's too small to hurt your back! Sorry you had to transfer, but glad you were able to get him here safely with only a minor intervention. from personal experience - if your stitches aren't gone in a couple of weeks, have your mw check them. Dissolving stitches don't always dissolve, and it messes with healing if they don't.

Excited to hear more when you have the chance! (Hoping to hear more from our other mamas soon, too, and to have SSB join us when she's ready!)

Hi ladies! It is so nice to see some of you again and those beautiful pictures of your little ones! Congratulations to you all. I've been hesitant in moving over here from the One thread, but I think I may be ready. Dh and I got a BFP after our first IVF cycle! We are still very early (transferred one beautiful embryo [5 day blastocyst] on November 25th), so I am still nervous, but so very excited. I had my first beta on Monday with a result of 684 and it was 1300+ (didn't get a chance to write down the actual number) on Wednesday. We have an ultrasound booked for January 8th to see how baby bird is doing (the nickname came from our last name, Crowe..I read back a bit and noticed you call Ben Baby Bird too monkey! Would it be weird for you if I use that name when I post? I don't want to jump on anyone's nickname). So far I'm feeling great. I had horrible stomach pains the first week, but they've tapered off and now I'm just a bit nauseous with very sore breasts. I'm off to read the rest of this thread!

Chica, he's adorable! Congrats, shesaidboom! How exciting for everyone.

Guy is one month and two days old today. Still hanging in there re: breastfeeding, but hate it more than ever. The mental irritation, physical irritation, and overall aggravation between he and I is making it highly likely I'm going to quit and just pump/bottlefeed. I'm going to try to get him in ASAP to get his upper lip tie evaluated and see if we can fix it, and see if that fixes my pain. I think if BFing didn't hurt me I'd be a lot more amenable to it. I had already given him bottles within week 1 due to my cracked nipples so he goes from bottle to breast totally seamlessly (a miracle!) but I really don't want to have to go that way if I can avoid it. Breastfeeding is SO convenient due to availability and simplicity. But I'll be damned if the growth spurts don't suck! (no pun intended)

Here's my boys from today. Guy IV and Guy V. :)

Ok - I'm going to try and post.

 

Shesaidboom - I'm so excited for you! I know what you have gone through to get this point. These first few weeks are the most nerve wrecking and Jan. seems too far away for that ultrasound.  We will try to support you as much as we can with little ones around!  It's so wonderful to finally have someone new join the graduates!!  Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I'll be thinking about you over the holidays...are you planning on telling any family over Christmas?

 

kparker - I wish had some really great advice to give you about BF.  You would like it better if it didn't hurt.  I know everyone says that if the latch is right then it doesn't hurt.  That's great and true, but not all babies and mom's are able to get a great latch easily.  My DS was terrible and our nursing sessions turned into a fight every time with me constantly having to re-latch him.  I gave up at 6 weeks as I was tired of hurting all the time and I really don't think he was getting enough milk.  It was then I was finally able to enjoy him!  I didn't even bother pumping much after that and he did wonderful on formula.  (So, if you absolutely don't want to BF anymore it will be ok.  Your little guy will be fine and he will still love you.)

 

Right now I'm itching all the time..at first I thought maybe thrush.  However, I've treated that I'm still miserably itchy.  Dry skin maybe??  I know certain bras make it worse.  Ugh.  My main issue with BF this time around is simply time.  I'm exhausted. If I could nurse 20 minutes and be done I think I would enjoy it.  I'm going to try and get an LC I know to come check her latch again and maybe that will help. 

 

I'm also thinking about giving a bottle once or twice a day to give myself a break. I figure some BF is better than none.  

 

Just remember if you have to do what works for your family!!   There isn't a right or a wrong choice...Enjoy your baby!!!!! cause he is adorable...

kparker - two handsome boys! Your little one is just adorable. I love his little pants. Did you make those? I'm sorry BFing has been so hard on you.

 

wissa - thank you! I am so excited to be joining the thread. Thank you for the kind thoughts! The only people we're planning to tell at this point are those that knew we were doing IVF, but we're making sure to remind them that we're still very early and please don't tell others yet. Unfortunately DH's parents already told a bunch of people in their excitement, which makes me worry in case anything happens.
I hope your itchies goaway soon! That does not sound like fun.

 

chica - thank you!

 

 

AFM - not much going on yet, just nauseous and a bit crampy. I'm worried about another miscarriage, but I'm trying to stay positive. I also feel really guilty about getting a BFP when other friends dealing with infertility didn't this cycle. I'm sure this is a normal feeling, but I wasn't expecting it. How did you deal with it if you've been there? One of my close friends just did her last IVF cycle and it did not work for her and her husband. I am devastated for her and have no idea how to act. I don't want to not talk about my pregnancy because I'm sure that would make her feel weird, but I also don't want her to feel like I'm rubbing it in her face. I've just stayed fairly quiet so far and have been trying to be as supportive as possible. Any advice?

Just be massively supportive. For some of us, we're on the boat a short while. Others, years. My best friend since childhood had a hard time all year trying with perfect timing (she had yet to get tested/etc, so just natural cycles) and here I was, about to give birth/with a newborn, and it was hard to complain about pregnancy and newborn issues to her because she was still on the boat. She's finally pregnant, about 6 weeks, so it got better for her. But until then (and even now, now that she's worried about being pregnant) all I did was just listen, and be supportive.

At least those of us who've been on the boat any length of time have a better understanding of how rough it all is - vs people who didn't have to take that ride being accidentally (or deliberately!) insensitive about it.

As for the pants, my good friend and doula made them for me :3

I would start it but I've been extremely sick with this LO so I don't know how often I'll get on. If no one else volunteers, I'll do it, but updates will be sporadic.

I would start it but I've been extremely sick with this LO so I don't know how often I'll get on. If no one else volunteers, I'll do it, but updates will be sporadic.

kparker - thank you so much for the wonderful advice. I will definitely do my best to be supportive, especially since I can understand how hard it is since DH and I had been TTC for so long.

 

monkey - thank you!! I'm so glad that there are some BFPs going around and I hope it keeps up. I've been having an awful time lately with a terrible cold (which is why I've been MIA) but the happy news from others is really making my holiday!

 

deborah - So happy to see you in the grads threads!!

 

planegreen - hurray!! So happy to see you in the grads threads too.

 

 

AFM - still waiting impatiently for that ultrasound on January 8th. Our "guess date" is August 17th. I still can't believe I am saying things like this! I'm getting over a terrible cold that kept me away from the computer, and I was very nervous about it hurting birdie (our baby bird nickname got shortened to birdie), but my GP (and everything my DH looked up online) assured me that it would be fine and I need not worry. Just lots of rest, fluids, and a humidifier to help loosen the congestion. I am feeling much better today, though still a bit stuffed up. I'm still having pregnancy symptoms, which definitely reassure me. My breasts ache and have actually gotten bigger already (which I do not need, I am already a D). I am also very nauseous, but as uncomfortable as it is I am grateful for the sign that things are still ok! I think that might change soon. I am looking forward to reaching 12 weeks when I can feel a little more secure and can stop the endometrin. I am so tired of it!
