I'm sorry to hear your still having problems with ppd. It's been a day by day struggle for me since the baby was about a week old. Good days and bad, but the meds seem to help. I took them then stopped then started again. I can't seem to make up my mind. Hang in there!

Thank god she was perfect on the plane. On the way out there she screamed at the airport, but then slept the ENTIRE flight it was awesome. Then on the way back she didn't wake up until I put her in the car and was headed home. I was so lucky.

As for my sugary I'm doing well, the pain is 1-5 usually staying around a 3 tho, the the air they pump in you is killing me, I wish they could deflate me before closing me up, lol.  But in insision sites look fine, a bit of dranage by the one by my belly button, but the other three look fine :) I'm managing my pain with vikaden, which seems to be working fine, I'm just trying to keep at least one pill in me at all time, sometimes two, but I think i've only use two twice so far.  But I hope to back at it soon!!  I hope all is well with Trinity, she's beautiful!!  And you lol.  If you want or need to talk , I'm here for ya and you're always in my thoughts!!

I totally know what you mean about being weepy... Owen smiled for the first time yesterday and I lost it... I was like "no you can't smile, cuz that means you're growning and I want you to stay a baby forever..." I know unrealistic, but still.

He's been getting formula since i went back to work 4 weeks ago.  I just couldn't keep up with pumping, and i didn't have much breastmilk in the freezer.  Luckily, he has taken to it really well with no problems.  How is bfing going for you??

We've been great!! I am thankful for my easy recovery and that Mickey is such a good, healthy baby. How are you and Trinity? I haven't been back to work yet, I go back Tuesday and I'm kind of dreading it. Especially since I let my Mom keep Mickey overnight last night, and that was HARD. She lives an hr away, and it was heartbreaking being away from him. I'm excited to get out of the house but I really don't want that to have to mean being away from my baby.

Glad to hear you and Ms. Trinity are doing well. So are you going to eventually quit BF her? I'm sorry it is taking her some trouble  to get her poop out, I heard it could be the iron in the formula. That is what happens to Aliviyah. But her pediatrician said when she has to poop and is struggling, bicycle her legs (which I have done, and it works! she quits crying so much during it) or you can take her thermometer and don't insert it to far, (i forgot how many cm it is) but just make little circles and it will help massage the muscles to help her push (i'm scared to try that method though) or you can put a little kero syrup in her bottle. (I've heard of a lot of people doing it though). I don't work. I haven't worked since Sept. of 08. I'm sorry you have to go back to work..

Hey Latrice. Me and Aliviyah are doing great. I'm no longer breastfeeding her. Because last Friday my milk supply to seem to become running slow, and I wasn't producing as nearly as much, and I was still drinking accurately and pumping so it could come in, and of course feeding her at the nipple too. It would take almost 2 hours just to even pump 4 oz. So I had to start her on formula because bf was a lost cause for us. I was sad! =/ But then the formula she was on, was making her tummy upset and she would spit up, and I think it was the milk or the protein in the milk, cause now she is on soy formula and doing wonderful by the Grace of God. :] We are both happy now. But how are you and Trinity doing? I think I sent you a request of FB.

I have the same exact problem at night. She will nurse for over an hour if I let her. It's like she's so tired that she's not getting the milk out or something because I can still pump after. I quit even trying at night it was just too much. I nurse her during the day only. I give her formula around 10 pm and it helps her to get a good stretch of sleep (most of the time) other than that at night we give her pumped breastmilk. You know I picked up the Medela hand pump for about $34 at Target and it works great. I get as much milk with that as I do the electric pump. If your sister hasn't picked up a pump yet that's the one I recomend. Glad to hear the appointment with the LC was helpful.

Thanks Latrice.  Sorry to hear you are having trouble too.  no one said it would be this hard.  My nipples became so sore that I had to stop nursing and pump for 48 hrs.  It took all my time to pump, then feed, then treat breasts with ice.  Eventually the pump stopped working to empty my breasts and they became even more engorged.  So I had to start nursing again.  Still really sore but seems to be getting better esp. after he latches for a few minutes.  I hope it gets better for you, everyone keeps saying it gets better after the first 2 weeks.  Good luck.

what a sweet name too! :) My pregnancy has been going really well, it's so fun to feel her move around.  Heartburn & backpain have been kicking in now, but it's way better than the morning sickness of my first trimester.  Everything with this baby is looking great so far, but I have another ultrasound at 32 weeks to make sure she's growing on schedule because of my bicornuate uterus.  I'm not worried about it, more excited to get another sneak peek :) congrats on the addition to your fam again!

Hey hun. Trinity is sooo precious. =] Congrats again. I know...not much longer. =] I'm getting so anxious. I went to the hospital today cause I was NOT feeling good. And the dr. checked my cervix and its CLOSED. =/ I'm due Sunday so I'm trying everything to possibly dilate... I'm 50% effaced though. I can't remember if you were dilated or not??? But hopefully I will dilate some, and my dr. will induce me on my due date. Wish me luck or send some labor dust....Which ever comes first...But anyways, how have you been???

I saw your post about breastfeeding. If you can pick up a breast shield. You can buy them at Target, babiesrus, any place that sells the medela brand pumps. I think they cost around $10 or 15. It's just this little nipple that sits on top of yours to help the baby latch on. You can also use them when your nipples are cracked or bleeding. Hope that helps!

I just wanted to say congrats on a wonderful baby girl, I love the name as well!!  But I also have to say that your labor took a LONG time, I was sure that you would have had her sooner than that, being that you were 3cm when you got to the hospital.  I'm sorry it tooks so long, but I know your pain!  And the epi didn't do anything for me when I was pushing either, I felt EVERYTHING...  And the there weird thing is when I first started pushing he was high... and I pushed for over an hour before the doc came in and said that we were going to "help" you along (ie. they used the vaccuum on me) and even that the doc and to pull pretty darn hard to get him to come down.
