Just in case!
Wondering how mole and E. are doing- you out there somewhere?
I am here! There is so little activity here now, and I'm not going to move to facebook. I just bought some breastfeeding clothes, and I love them. My jaw is less stressed now that I dont have to use my chin to hold my shirt up all the time. S has had a stomach ache the past couple days, super needy and wanting constant motion. I even have to nurse him walking sometimes now, sitting down makes him cry. I'm exhausted. I tried to start excersizing, and I just can't manage. I can do some things around the kitchen, but just barely. When I'm wearing him, I can't reach to do things (too short arms) so I want to get him on my back. I asked for a woven wrap for Christmas, maybe that will help me do more around the house. The ratio in our home is two adults to one baby, and he is outclassing us. He always has a reason for crying, so I feel like he is a very good communicator, but he needs a lot of direct attention, direct face to face paying attention only to him (like he doesnt like it if I read while he is nursing) and he sometimes sleeps very well, sometimes very poorly so we can't ever know if we can start something or if there will be time to finish it. I'm just very, very tired.
Mole, that sounds rough! My first was similarly high needs and those first months are a haze. Being able to get your baby on your back should make a huge difference.
Are you sure you don't want to join the facebook group? We miss you!
Hi ladies, I have not been on here since being pregnant (did not post much) and am considering joining you all on FB. Someone mentioned it is a "secret" group? Is that the same as a private group? Just wondering if there is a difference. Maybe I will see some of you over there. I would like to connect with other mommy's and chat about our experiences, that is whenever I can find the time.
Honey bee, a secret group means that it can't be searched, none of the posts show up in non-member news feeds, so your other friends won't see them, and a current member needs to add you. I'm not exactly sure about the terminology, and if there's a difference between private and secret, but it's about as secure as facebook gets.
If you want, you can send me a message and friend request to me, and I'll add you!https://www.facebook.com/carlin.a.johnston
Hi Mole! I was just asking about you on facebook so I thought I'd come over to see if you had posted. And wow, that does sound really rough. My little guy is somewhat high needs so I can relate a little bit but I hope that the stomach ache is on the way out so things get a little better for you. Sounds like that woven wrap may at least do the trick to give you a free hand. I have to wear my baby for naps and have been using the Moby. It really doesn't allow as much productivity as I would have expected.
