Sheaby in case he isn't able to find a job right away.  Plus, now we are saving up for IVF as well, since that seems to make the most sense for us now that we have had 2 losses in 3 months.

krichar That's crazy, neither do I  :( mine was $70 a session and 1/2 was covered.... I know it's hard, I've had 2 chemicals and 2 miscarriages all through ivf.... I'm most positive it will happen for you soon and all this pain will wash away and be worth it :)

Sheaby I'm just so ready to have a baby.  IVF seems so far away and the doctor won't let me get on femara this month b/c it's not a "real" cycle.

Trying to find ways to increase milk production.  The tea and dark beer didn't work, already drinking tons of water - now on "lactation support" from whole foods.  Hope this works so I can build up a stash!! Jul 23 - 6

KTowne I don't know if you had any luck, but fenugreek (can buy it at a local drug store), is all natural and has no side effects, works amazing!! That's how I got through growth spurst, the breastfeeding forum really is a great support group as well!

Sheaby The lactation support supplement I'm on has fenugreek seed in it.  I'm taking that, putting brewers yeast and flax on my steel cut oats, drinking gatorade...doing everything I can and still only getting 4-5 oz per pump.  It keeps up with her, which is all

Sheaby that really matters to me.  I would like to build up a stash in the freezer in case of an emergency or to donate to my local milk bank - but feeding Kathryn is my top priority!

krichar Shea... I was never able to pump much... I gave up and just nursed... He never went hungry.... They say to actually nurse to bring up supply, stimulates more than pumping... Do

During tummy time, Kathryn rolls over from belly to back.  Isn't it WAY too early for that?  She's done it several times so I don't think it was an accident!! Jul 19 - 4

Heather3418 No. it's not too early.  She's a smart baby.  I wouldn't expect anything less from her.  Way to go Kathryn.  You're the champ.  Look out momma, she will probably crawl early and walk early.  Thank you for all the precious and beautiful pictures of Kathryn.  She is a very expressive and gorgeous, baby girl.  She's growing up too fast though.  Tell her to slow down a little bit, momma.  Keep taking the pictures momma.  When our children are born and growing up, we can never take too many pictures.  Pictures are priceless.  How are you feeling, little momma?  How well are you bouncing back from your c-section?

Sheaby Thanks ladies!!  Heather, I am feeling wonderful, and ready to start working out again!!!  But, I will at least wait until my 6 week follow up before I start anything too strenuous.  Scar has healed beautifully, and we are completely mobile!!

Sheaby So far it's just been due to lots of water (though I need to drink more) and pumping/nursing.  This child stays hungry!!  :)

Sheaby And yes, the anxiety is a lot better!!  DH thinks it had a lot to do with the pain meds.  I never take pills - especially every 4 hours for days at a time.  So hopefully
I don't have to take those again for a long time!!
