Hi! Sorry I took so long replying. I've barely been on the computer. My FIL is better, but we still don't know when he'll be released. I'm starting to feel like breastfeeding was a bad idea. Everytime he fusses, whoever is holding him tells me he needs to eat and hands him to me. I don't know how you handle being a single mom. I give you a lot of credit. I have my 6 week appt. with my midwife next wednsday and she'll clear me to go back to work. Bummer. Is Chandler still in bed with you? Liam has been sleeping in his crib for 2 weeks. He still doesn't sleep for very long periods, but I sleep a bit better now. Have you noticed your appetite increasing with breastfeeding. I feel like I'm starving all the time lately.

I work 3rd shift so my hubby will be with Liam while I'm working. He works 1st shift so I'll have to get all my sleeping done after dinner. LOL. I did send my last one to daycare though. I found a lady with 8 kids who ran one from her house. I'd send Liam to her in a heartbeat, but we've moved out of state since.

Hey! Love your new profile pic. Chandler is so cute! I haven't been on here much. My FIL had open heart surgery this week and he's not doing too good. Liam has been on a feeding frenzy and last night he got up 4 times to eat. And he's so gassy! I got him to sleep in his crib for about 2 hours last night. That was really nice. I'll be going back to work in October too. Not sure of the exact date yet. I think I'm going to have to supplement with formula once I go back. What are you doing for work from home?

She is head down too and moving farther into my pelvis. Had some bad contractions last night so hopefully they did some good.

Hey! The only way I know how much Liam eats is when he has a bottle. He seems to eat about 3 oz. per feeding. But as far as when I'm nursing, who knows. I think I might have been paranoid about it if he were my first, but I can tell he's gaining weight by the way he fills out his clothes. But, don't feel guilty if you decide to go to formula. If you're paying for it out of pocket, the cheapest stuff is Wal-mart brand powdered. But, try WIC first. It'll save you a LOT of money if you qualify. I really need to get Liam out of my bed too but I started giving him a pacifier and he wakes up when he loses it so it's way easier to have him next to me. No nicotine cravings yet. I know returning to work will bring it on though. I only have 3 1/2 weeks left of maternity leave :(

Hi! I feel your frustration with breastfeeding. I feel like Liam is constantly wanting to nurse. It's a bit overwhelming. I manage to pump about 3-4 oz. per day which seems to be about what Liam drinks at a feeding. I'm really self-concious about breast-feeding in public so I save all the pumped milk for when we have to go somewhere. I just have a manual pump. I was afraid to spend too much on it because I didn't know if breastfeeding would work out. Liam is feeling much better. He's driving me a bit crazy though. He sleeps very little for a newborn. And when he's awake, he expects attention. How is Chandler? I bet he has his own personality already. Is he still sleeping with you? Liam is still in my bed. LOL.

I'm sorry your not getting much sleep but like you said its worth it. I have my next appointment Wednesday. I am hoping that they will tell me that my cervix has started to thin out or dilate or both. I guess we will see. Starting to have some crampy like feelings low in my abdomen and some pains in my perennial area. I guess we will see what it means Wednesday.

Yeah I went into L&D and I am only at a 3 so they didn't keep me... Booooo! I have been doing a ton of walking and shopping though so I am really hoping that it helps! I am getting the last stuff I need for her today (big shipment from amazon) and I will be going back to L&D tonight to be checked! Fingers crossed!

Had to send this in 2 parts - It said I exceeded the 800 character limit :O

Last night, he was so congested that I had him sleep sitting up in his car seat and he did pretty good. We went to the Dr. wednsday and he weighed 9lbs. 10oz. Emily has Aspergers, a mild form of autism. She held the baby once in the hospital, but hasn't touched him since we brought him home. How are the nicotine cravings? I haven't had any, but I'm sure I will when I go back to work

Hi! Breastfeeding is going well. I pump whenever my breasts are firm and Liam is finished nursing. I only get 2-3 oz. at most, but that seems to be how much he takes at a time. He's really good going between breast and bottle. I know what you mean about sleeping with baby. Liam has been sleeping with me since he came home from the hospital too. I wake up everytime he moves. He does sleep longer in the bed with me though.

Yeah, I agree. They really messed up. Unfortunately the midwife who was on-call at the time is pretty new and I think she just made a bad decision. I really like her though so I'm not holding a grudge. Liam is doing really well. He's taken to breastfeeding and he seems to be getting over his gassy episode. The kids are loving him. My boys hover constantly. My daughter doesn't bother much with him though. I figured that would be the case. Her autism makes her avoid loud things. LOL. How are you and Chandler? How is he doing with breastfeeding?

Aw! You are having the new mommy trying to adjust period! I am seriously worried about how I am going to take care of a newborn and a 3.5 year old. Nope, no shopping yet =( DH still hasn't gotten his bonus and now we are just waiting... I wake up every morning hoping that he is going to tell me it came through so I can order all of this stuff from Amazon and I have like 90% of it saved on there... I just have a few of the basic essentials to get (lotion, baby wash, baby wipes, etc.) and get my hospital bag/diaper bag packed and pick up some breast feeding essentials so hopefully it will all work out!
Hopefully it will come in tomorrow and I will be able to order it all and go get what we need to be stocked! What kind of work are you doing from home?

HI! Thanks for the congrats. Liam was born 23.5 hours after they started the pitocin. It was rough. They thought I was ready to push, so they broke the water and he still wouldn't descend. The cervix wasn't entirely dialated but they had me pushing anyway and the cervix swelled up. They had to stop the pitocin and ice the cervix.  I got so exhausted that I told them I wanted either a c-section or an epidural. That was at 5am. So they gave me an epidural and restarted the ptocin and I started pushing again at 12:30pm. He was born after about 20 minutes. It was pretty bad, I thought it would be a peice of cake since I was on #4.

I hope I have as much luck with breast feeding that you have! I tried with Richie but he had nipple confusion because they gave him a bottle for supplements in the hospital and he got so lazy after that!!!! Not this time I swear and I will be taking my cloth diapers to the hospital too! I am going to drive the nurses crazy! LOL! I do plan on taking a goodie basket with me though and that will be my next weekend project! I still have so many things to do and I get to do the nursery right away (we were going to wait because my DH might get transferred) and I am so excited about it!!! Yes, your little man is too cute!!!!!
Hopefully pumping will go well for you!

I have like 4 or 5 lists going on!!! It is so silly! I always make a list unless I am going for one or two things and even then I make a list on my phone just to make it easier on me! I just looked at Chandlers new pics that you posted and he is sooooo freaking cute! He has the cutest lips! You are one lucky momma! When are you due to go back to work?

LOL yeah I figure it was one of those issues! He might have a little bit of reflux and some babies do until they get adjusted to life on the outside. Yeah I have a list and my husband brought up the subject of using Amazon.com (he used to use it for everything!) so I started picking stuff out and he is just going to order it all for me on Tuesday. I am even ordering her furniture online. There are a few things that I still want to go to the store and buy (like her clothes and blankets and sheets) but that is because I like to know how it feels before I buy it. I am weird like that...Also her bottles and pacifiers and baby wipes...
Yeah things have been good between DH and I so I am trying to keep things happy =)

I am sorry you aren't getting any sleep and that can be totally rough with a newborn! Also when he sleeps (whenever he sleeps or naps) try to take a 20-40 minute nap and it will really work wonders! I promise!
Yes, Marley is being a very good girl and staying in until Mommy and Daddy are ready! I am so thankful for that... I have a feeling shopping this late in the game like I need to is going to make it so much harder!!!! As long as she stays in until the next weekend then I should be good!!!! I am going to be very busy though!!!
With DH I had to pretty much threaten to leave him because I was so upset and there is no way that I can live like that...It was the last thing I wanted to do but I was 100% serious about what I said and he definitely took me seriously.
