AF coming soon?

Sep 02, 2013 - 0 comments

its been so nice to not have my period for over a year now.  now that I increase my pumping schedule to twice a day, my supply has dropped off and I'm starting to feel small cramps.  I also woke up totally pissed off...pms?  I'm sure AF is just around the corner.  Bummer cause I've sure enjoyed not having to deal with cramps, tampons, pads and a baby.  haha
I guess its good to know where I am in my cycle.  They always warn nursing mothers to be careful cause you can still get pregnant when nurning cause you don't know when your cycle is going to start and you could get pregnant on your first cycle.  I'm been scare of being with DH cause I really wouldn't want to get pregnant so fast.  I can barely handle one kid.  And I still have about 10-15 lbs to loose.  I couldn't imagine getting pregnant again for a couple years.  


4 months check up

baby Lena has been growing like a weed.  she has very chunky legs.  She got 2 shots in her leg today at the doc's.  She didn't like it one bit.  she doesn't mind the oral vaccine.  
she is now weighting in at 15 lbs.  height is 24.75 inches.  67% and 70%.  Her head circumference is on the smaller size.  I keep saying that they should measure around her cheeks.  Then they'd get a much higher number!
I go back to work on Tuesday.  i'm a bit apprehsive about it but she will be staying with my parents 3 days a week and a nearby home daycare the other two.  I just don't know how i'm going to work full time and do all the other stuff I normally do too.
I've spread out my pumping to only twice a day.  when I did that, my supply dropped off a bunch.  I was getting about 27 oz per day.  now i'm at 15 to 17 and I don't feel full when it comes time to pump.  i'm hope it just lessens within the next couple weeks and then i'll be done.  I'm happy to have gotten Lena b-milk for 4 months and we've frozen a bunch so she might get it for another 3-4 months.  only 3 bottles a day since we are still giving her formula at night.

10 weeks old.  weight: 12 lbs 6 oz.  23 inches tall.
got 3 shots today and one oral for a total of 6 vaccines.  She was not a happy camper.
Still working on finding a formula that doesn't give her so much gas.  Doc gave us some samples of Enfamil Nutramigen.  very expensive stuff.  meanwhile, i'm freezing my milk.  hope to give it to her once we find a formula we like.
