I have always struggled with plugged ducts. This time I'm taking Lecithin, and it helps SO much. As long as I take 1200 mg 3x daily I don't get plugged ducts.

Does anyone else feel weird clicking on the I'm Pregnant link to get to our DDC? I tried my best to embrace pregnancy while I was actually pregnant, but now I am right back to where I started. The thought of being pregnant again scares me and I have a hard time reading birth stories because they remind me of my experience. I hate the thought of having a contraction ever again! Although maybe it's just me...

I am happy to report that things are going great with baby Iago! DH and I are in love. He is amazing, really. So far, since we brought him home, he has been sleeping through the night! Who knows if it will last, but for now I am thrilled! He is really filling out too, which is great. The midwives warned me at the hospital to feed as much as possible. Here in France you have to do obligatory weekly weigh-ins and that sometimes they can bring a lot of stress if a baby doesn't gain accordingly. I am happy to report that Iago was way over his birth weight at 12 days! He is already starting to outgrow his first outfits.

Ok, I will try and finish writing his birth story and post it asap.

Here is a pic from the hospital: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...a&id=867990276

How well would this actually work I wonder? I didn't gain a bunch of weight (about 30 pounds total) and my sugars were fine...
