Little Julia is thriving. I haven't had her weighed, but she is growing and filling out nicely. She has such chubby cheeks, I just want to kiss them all day. We always marvel at the fact that our dcs don't have dents in them from being kissed so much! We have an appointment with our FP doc in a few weeks. I choose to vax, but I totally respect folks who decide not too.
I am starting to level out with the PPD. What a bummer that was. I hated to go on meds, but it is helping tremendously. I forgot to take it one day, and had an awful day...
Anyhoo, I think maybe AF returned. Jules is sleeping 4-5 hour stretches at night, so that makes sense. She is 8 weeks tomorrow. I also had a UTI. First one in 20+ years and hope it is the last one. Now, I am worried about thrush since I am on an antibiotic. I started the probiotics, so hope that will help. I also want to start running again on the treadmill. Trying to wait it out to see if this is AF or the pp bleeding... I will wait a few more days to be on the safe side if it is pp bleeding, I don't want to make it worse. I really want to try to loose some weight. I am not hugely overweight, but from all three (4 including a mc) I gained about 25 pounds. I would really like to loose it. I am eating all healthy foods and have cut a lot of sugar out of my diet and am eating only whole grains. But nursing makes me so hungry I find it hard to cut back any more.
She is starting to sleep a more regular pattern and is smiling and cooing away. She lights up the world when she does... I bet your babes do too! Last night though, I took her in the tub with me and it over stimulated her. We couldn't get her to sleep til after 1200. That hasn't happened in about 2 weeks or so. Worst of all, we had big glasses of wine with a movie and so we were sooooo sleepy, but she wasn't. We love our ring sling and I would love to try another kind, but $ is an issue. I am looking for a new style at a consignment store. Ha, maybe I will try to make one... ha ha ha. I have fabric from 2 years ago that I bought to make a scrub top. Still in the closet.
I go back to work in just over 1 week....
: Oh, well... It pays the mortgage, so not an option, and I like my work. Dh has been great. He is cooking more and I call him "Laundry Man". I think I will make him a super cape for Christmas. I hope that I can keep my milk supply up while working nights. I had some issues last time and had to take fenugreek. Something about not getting enough sleep really takes its toll on my supply. Only two nights a week though, so hope it will not be a big deal.
This week, I made some fleece liners for our diapers, and they work great. Keeps her and her sister drier and the poop shakes off easier for my toddler. We have totally ditched the disposables and we double diaper at night now. Guess I can add the CD symbol to my siggie.
We are going to friends for turkey day and then having a family celebration this weekend. only have to make a few pies and a few side dishes, nothing too fancy. Next week, I will cook a turkey for our family for leftovers.
So, that is what is happening in our neck of the woods. Oh, one more thing, I got a boppy pillow. I had a gift card to that awful
place Toys R Us. It was one of the items that I have always wanted to try and about the only thing that was in the store that we would use. And, I love it! It has made nursing much more comfortable for my back.
Happy Thanksgiving to all! Sorry so long, but I had the time to chat!
