I've been trying to post for day, but keep getting interrupted!
I didn't really read too much of that thread about the dad/male OB subject. Sounds strange (the part about it effecting their relationship, that's odd). Is it bad that the only 2 gyn exams/pap smears I've had have been the two times I was pregnant
(Actually, the second time was a few months after Piper was born).
Ryleeee. I read your post and a few of the replies, about your wild nursing sessions. My DS Jakob was the same way as a baby, he was so aggressive about nursing at times. I never did try a nursing necklace. He did this up until about 18 months old. He was a big twiddler...he would grab the other nipple that he wasn't latched onto...he'd grab and pinch and twist. Sometimes holding his hand would distract him from being so grabby, but a lot of times it would just make him mad until I let him grab my boob. He doesn't nurse as often these day, and sometimes when I say, "You can have mama milk later" he's like, "Let me cuddle it, Let me hold it"
Piper is biting me! It hasn't been too bad. No blood drawn. It's when she's nursing. She got her one bottom tooth a few months back, and the second bottom tooth has been right under the gums forever. I was so focused on that one, I was surprised today when Piper was smiling and I noticed one top tooth just poked through, and the other top one is just about to as well. No wonder she is nibbly.
Piper is really wanting to stand and walk. She's full on crawling these days, pretty fast. Sometimes when she is on the floor playing, she will do this "Mama, I'm done, pick me up" yell. I've been telling her, "Okay, crawl over here and I'll pick you up" and she'll yell a little and crawl her way over. THen I put my hands down so she can grab them and she gets up on her knees and then stands herself up. She also slid off the couch backwards today and stood for a few seconds, then fell. She's been stuff like that more, wonder when she'll walk? Jakob didn't walk until right around 1 yr old.
I've been feeling wonky lately, my back aches, crampy, etc. Maybe my first pp af? Guess time will tell...I'm hoping it doesn't show yet. With Jakob it came back when he was 18 months old.
G'nite all. It's midnite, time to get some sleep before my kids force me to wake up in the morning. My birthday is coming up this weekend....DH better let me sleep in! That would be the best present
