Aydensmama and Ayah, gorgeous kiddos!

I had my first entire day at school today. I had a meeting 9-10 a.m., a seminar from 10-noon, another meeting from 1:30-3 and another seminar from 3-5.

DH brought DS to meet me for lunch, which was wonderful. It was nice to see them and it meant I didn't have to pump, I just nursed DS twice during that time and then again when I got home. It went beautifully, DS napped really well, and I had a great day. Yay!

How's everyone doing?

Last night was spent with DS on me all night. He would not detach from the boob and he would not let me put him in his cradle while I went to do silly things like pee or get some water. He would scream whenever I tried to put him down. Poor little guy.

Is there anyone here that has not resumed sex? We haven't DTD since before he was born. I just don't really have the urge. Part of it is because I had a third degree tear and I'm just afraid it'll be painful. The other part has been a lack of desire. I know it's normal for libido to be a bit lower after childbirth, but for how long? I did suffer from PPD, but that's been mostly resolved for a while now. I should go talk to my midwife about it. Thankfully, I have a very understanding DH. My ex-friend told me stories of how her DH made her do things she never wanted to do when she was post-partum and waiting for the first 6 weeks to go by.

Ayah - he is GORGEOUS!! I think I'm in love.

My shower solution is the stroller. She is very rarely sitting up and still in something so it's a bit of a novelty. I give her a magazine to tear and I sing and do silly things in the shower (as usual, really). She finds it all hilarious.

Saturn's return is an awful thing, that unfortunately coincided with dd1 being a baby... yuck. Everything just goes wrong and is really hard work.

Maria - yay for the good day all round!!

As for sex, I can't believe how far my sex drive has disappeared. I really can't. Wasn't like this last time. MrsMike - loads of lubrication will help, and maybe the physical desire will come along if the mental desire is there - and if nothing is there...well, no point forcing it.

would anyone like a foam wedge for their babes? it s the one out of the "first steps" catalouge. i bought it for gingy because lulu had very bad gerd... but gingy never needed it...:

i'm assuming everyone's reflux issues are ironing out at this point or you've found solutions... but just in case, before i post this to a gerd tribe, i'd thought i d offer it here...

i'll pay for shipping

For me, my drive came back a bit when my periods started back (usually 14ish mos) and then again a bit more after weaning (a lot longer still). It's so low, so so low.

we've had sex once. And it was uncomfortable, and my periods HAVE started back up. I am dealing with PPD, but I have NEVER EVER had much of a drive to begin with. I also had a third degree tear.

Maria, yay for good days! It's so nice that your DH can bring the baby to you during the day.

Re: sex - not much going on here yet. I was really worried after Ethan was born, because it was the first time I'd torn at all. It was really minor, but it still scared me. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and now our lack of DTD is pretty much just my insane fear of pregnancy. DH had the big V, but hasn't managed to get back to the office for the post-op all-clear :

Sabbath, so sorry about your loss.

Amy, great to see you again.

Juice, the best solo shower solution I have found so far is to bring DS into the shower with me. I put a receiving blanket down to make it less slippery, and he sits and splashes while I shower very quickly. We had great success with a bouncy seat for a long time, but then he outgrew it, so we had to get more creative. For the most part, though, we just shower when both of us are home (and did that when DH was working, too -- I often showered at night.)

I don't know more about the Saturn Return than your average new age-y woo woo type, with no formal training in the woo arts, but I know it's an event that astrologically occurs beginning around age 28-30ish that basically creates lots of difficulty, friction, challenges, but with an eventually positive purpose--that your life changes as a result toward your highest good.

Sab--I recall at age 25 not having ANY desire whatsoever, and basically counted on what Masters & Johnson (I believe it was them) reported from their sexuality studies: Women hit their sexual peak at around age 30, whereas men hit it at around age 19. Go figure. It has been mega-true for me. At age 25 (and this holds true among my 2 25 year old friends) I was too busy spending my creative energy in many other ways. Plus, just now I'm remembering your history, which counts for a lot as well. Maybe by 30 some of that gets resolved? I have some similar issues that have affected me as well.

MrsMike- we try to have sex about 2x a week- though I NEVER feel like it. DH just gets to crabby if we don't: . I think the lack of sex drive has something to do with having a baby attached to my boob all day

Ya'll are making me nervous with this saturn return thing. I am 31 a not really any bad things have happened yet- although my teen years and early 20's were REALLY rough- so maybe I just get a break now.

We pretty much don't DTD the deed anymore. I think it has been three times since DS was born. If I have to choose between sleep and sex.....I choose sleep. DH is understanding to some point, but still thinks he is going to die from lack of sex. I have told him many times that in the history of mankind......no one has ever died from not getting enough. He doesn't agree. : : I have to say though that I have noticed more of a desire to do something since AF returned. Not enough though to make a move on my own

Yes, my babe is becoming quite clingy - I think it's seperation anxiety time. I'm making more use of the ring sling with her on my hip in the house. I still cannot use the ergo alone...I think it's a phobia!

Eh, not so much. We've DTD probably once a month or so since the baby was a couple months old. I am just not interested, unfortunately. Might have something to do with the fact that we have three kids and no plan for birth control and my time for LAM has run out. I'm terrified we'll have another cute surprise. :

Shower solutions: when ds could sit well, I put him in the tub with me on a nonskid mat. It was the same mat we used for his baths. Dd1 did the same thing. Now, I've too many kids to take a shower in the morning, so I take one before bed. I can usually take my time that way. Although, some nights I have to choose sleep or shower and sleep sometimes wins. Then I'm left with the same shower dilemma with a baby that is only just now sitting decently.

Mine would think he died and went to Heaven!

It was a long day today. I'm worn out and the baby won't nap! At least the other two are playing nicely and quietly in the bedroom. We wasted over three hours at the state capitol today waiting for our bill to be heard in the committee meeting. Only to be told it wouldn't be today. : We've been officially rescheduled for Tuesday and promised that we would be first after our sponsor pointed out the constituents waiting with their babies.

My c/s was nearly 6 years ago. I had an unmedicated hospital VBAC a little over two years ago and a HBAC just six months ago. I've only got a minute, but I can tell you that it is worth it to go for a VBAC! The VBAC was so much better than the c/s and the HBAC was light years from the c/s. Wonderful!!!

My baby was on the news!!! And I missed it!!! My friend (who's baby was also on the news) saw it and recorded it. As soon as her dh gets me a copy on dvd, I'll try to post a link somehow. I checked the tv station and no link so far. She said she worked the camera sucking her little thumb for her debut!

Sabbath, I'm way behind on this thread. Have you ever seen a homeopath for the migraines? My coworker has great results. As for PPD/depression, did you ever read this thread? Sunshinestarr just passed it along to me and I am so interested in it!

Cori, the only reason we don't use an exersaucer for showering is that ours is downstairs in the kitchen and it's too awkward to carry upstairs every time we want to shower. (It was a hand-me-down and does not move from one place to another very easily.) I agree that it's a useful, "stay here for ten minutes, please," device, though, and if we had one upstairs, I would use it for showers.

Hey, for those who have had their first pp AF, was it very light? I felt very crampy lately, my blood sugars showed the same weird pattern that they have whenever AF is on the way, then I saw a teensy tiny bit of blood, and that was it. : It feels counterintuitive to me -- I expected it to be much heavier.

Glad it went so well Pi! That is awesome

That's the new one! I've read that many hypothyroid people prefer it. I'm not happy with my results over the last 5-10 years, so I'm giving it a try. If it works, the extra perk is it is A LOT cheaper than the two separate meds I was taking.

And they put the newsreport online! That beautiful little thumbsucker in the green sling is my babe!!!

Sabbath, I'm so sorry about your grandfather. and :guh

I'm lovin' all the baby pics. I need to get some recent pics uploaded!

Tanya, what a wonderful debut for your DD's acting career!

Kim, you probably don't want to hear this, but last night I had a dream you were preggo! I've been having strange and vivid dreams lately (no, I'm NOT PG).

Since there are so many new mamas here lately, I was thinking we should do a brief intro of ourselves so that they can get to know us better.

Here's me: I'm Laura, I had DS in June (due in July, hence my hanging out with the July mamas) at a birth center. DS is quite a chunk ... he's somewhere around 28 lbs and is in 24 month clothing. Before being a SAHM, I was a massage therapist (I still take the occasional client). I really like to travel, but I've put that on a bit of a hiatus until DS is older. I like to sew and do other crafty things, even though I'm not very good at them! I also like to cook, but that is not why my username contains "cook." I've been married to DH 4 years as of March 1.

Laura, Troy, Seth 6.24.06 , and Aaron 7.13.09

Ahem. : I know she's bald and you can't see her pink shirt but.... And that would be me wearing her, but she did get passed around a bit. The babies were a hit!

Intros sound like a great idea, Laura!

I'm a SAHM of three kids: ds, 5, dd1, 2, and the baby girl is fast approaching seven months. My first was born via c/s, second a natural hospital VBAC, and third at home after a long 16 day wait past my July due date. So technically an August babe, but they still let me play here. I'm a LLL Leader and I also volunteer with the Arkansas Breastfeeding Coalition.

I love to read and sew when I have time. I just realized that dh and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary this September!

My name is Kirstin, I am a SAHM to my dd Kaitlyn, and ds Noah. I was a single mom to Noah for about 4 years- then met my dh and we have been married for almost 3 years. Before getting pg with Kaitlyn I worked at an elementary school with Special Needs children- mainly Autistic and some Bipolar. I love to sew and cook also sewaneecook! Although I am not as good as I would like to be! I had natural birth at a hospital- and it was fast- I dilated from a 3 to a 10 in 7 minutes! Anything else you would like to know just ask!
