Marlow wakes up panicky screaming now...3 times a night : any ideas what it could be?
Yesterday I got her a used push style walker...like old lady style not exersaucer style and she can walk! for a few steps that is. Then she falls to her knees and gets right back up to go more! She was playing with her friend's one on Sunday and I found the same style one at goodwill....maybe this isn't a good thing to play with? I don't know...should she not be "walking" yet?
I am a newbie here myself...my daughter Kailani was born on June 6 2006 ... the most favourite thing I love about my Junebug is that she's hardly ever upset, she always wakes up with a smile, she's always cooing and happy
Happy Birthday Maggie!!!!
I got out of bed at 4am (I'd pretty much been up since 11:30, since that's when Sam woke up to eat) because I started cramping badly. 20 minutes in the bathroom with contractions three minutes apart, and I knew I needed to call my parents to come down and watch the kids.
I got dressed, woke Brad up, then called my parents. Naturally, in the middle of an ice storm, it took a while. At 5:30, Brad called to check and see where my parents were, and found out they were stuck behind a snow plow, and were only able to go about 25 down the interstate.
So, we bundled up all three girls, and started out for the hospital. It took us almost 20 minutes to go the 6 blocks, because the roads were AWFUL. I got up to our room and went in to the bathroom to change. My water broke at 6:28, and at 6:35 my midwife checked me...I was 8. So, she suited up and then sat on the edge of the bed and told me to just let her know when I wanted to push. I started pushing at 7:05, and at 7:36, he was out and in my arms.
My midwife was phenomenal. She massaged me the entire time, so I had one skid mark. That's it! She was very mellow, barely spoke, and let me totally do my thing. My nurse was also a huge support, and very sweet and encouraging.
He nursed within about half an hour, latched on the second try, and nursed for 15 minutes. Then he slept for the rest of the day.
We're home, and doing great. 3 1/2 hours, start to finish, and I feel phenomenal. Yay! Such a great healing event from last time.

I keep freaking out that I'm going to get pregnant again. Sometimes the monthly reassurance is nice. Condoms are no good.
