So happy for the update - regarding the nursing - if you don't have access to an LC, try one of the stores in town - Every Mother & Baby, BestFed, etc. or as a pp said, call LLL! If you're having a rough start, don't be afraid to get help. I suffered through weeks of pain with the first 2 kids, and finally with ds decided to ask for help before it got that bad again - I am soooo glad I did! For me, switching to a cross-cradle hold for initial latch-on made a huge difference. I never even tried that with the girls. I figured by the 3rd kid I wouldn't need help, as I had years worth of experience already - but it made such a difference having somebody give me some tips! Talk to you soon...and just one more YIPPEE Yay for your VBA2C

Ok, I don't know how to post pics, so I am going to change my privacy setting on my myspace page to public for a few days. There's a bulletin with some info and a slide show with pics! You can also click on my pics and view the "now we are 5 album". Here is the link: http://www.myspace.com/jjharshe

Thanks again for all your love and support. When I finally get a birth story done I will post!

Love you all,
January

Hey there! I emailed you a week or so ago. Did you get it? I also tried to send you an email tonight, but it was too big and got sent back. To answer your question...nursing is going great! It's awesome! I'm so happy. Let's get together soon. Email me and we'll make plans!

Congrats and wow! to your patience and ability to wait for your babe with all the pressure you must have felt to do otherwise. Way to go Momma!

You don’t owe them an explanation, just a response.

Oh January! She's absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us. You're so not what I pictured. For some reason I thought you were ethnic of one sort or another. Now I have no idea where I got that from. Must have been my preggo brain.

I tried to add you in MySpace, but I don't know the required info, so I'll just silently stalk you for more pictures of your gorgeous little ones.

Yeah, I do feel silly though. :
It asks for your last name or email address.
