About Me: Female, 42, Med City, MN, member since Nov 2006
I have six children. Four girls and two boys! My first son was born July 14, 2007 6 weeks early with jejunal atresia, hypospadias and a few other minor anomalies. I work full time. When I was little, all I wanted to be was a Mommy and that hasn't changed. I love my fami
I nursed my fifth child for 11 months. I felt like I really shorted myself and my daughters by not sticking with it long enough with them. I gave up because of severe engorgement and nipple pain in the first few days after their birth. Due to my son being in the NICU and having intestinal surgery (jejunal atresia), I made myself stick with it because mothers milk and the intense bonding is what he needed most. It is a beautiful thing and if I had it to do all over again I would have made myself stick with it for all of my babies. I am definitely an advocate of nursing now. And very proud of myself for succeeding. I nursed my second son for 15+ months. I miss it!

I didn't even ask about the gender. We don't find out, it's the best surprise! Such a relief about the results, for now :) I'm pegging this one for 99.9% girl. You should see my thighs! Oh, I sent you a picture of Baron today, can you believe the rash? They say most likely peanut allergy, really? ugh, that would suck a big toe!! Glad you are back safe from Hawaii, how is/was the whole nursing thing??? I'm dying to know!
