I'm very tired and need to rest. I had a first good day with new office mgr. YaY! daughter was a plus to being helpful. She was really nice. I'm glad to be around her and office mgr. They are good peeps.
I'm very blessed today and thankful i've made it thru the day.
Hi SB, I'm really glad you had a nice day and that the new office employees are working out for you.
I don't know what's wrong with my baby but she has refused to nap all day and as a result has been crying all afternoon. I usually don't mind the crying but today she's driving me batty. Thankfully the husband just took both girls on a stroller ride so this is the first quiet I've had all day. I feel tense and panicky and like I'm barely holding it together. Also for the past month my baby hasn't nursed much (and she doesn't get a bottle) and now I think my period is returning (which didn't happen with my oldest until she was 10 months old because she nursed a lot).
I nursed both my babies till they were a year old and never had either of your symptoms Otw or DD. After 3 mos. with both I returned to having periods. Isn't it funny tho both my pregnancies were different and kids were too my body tho I had a c section first birth and vaginal second were differnet.
Perhaps its time to call pediatrician now. I don't remember how often you take the little ones to doc when first born but it never hurts to call them. better to err on the side of caution i always said with my babies and children. OTW YOU'RE DOING SUCH A GREAT JOB WITH THESE LITTLE GIRLS! AND YOURSELF!
I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS!! BELIEVE ME! specially after a csection. did you have a csection with P too? I don't remember cuz my memory fails me a lot as you know!
i do feel for ya! i can empathize there when you're so exhausted and trying to raise babies up that its a difficult proposition! that's for sure! it may make it harder on you if you continue (don't know if you stopped) on the sh cycle cuz it changes our brains to think differently!
Pray otw to have God give you the sustenance you so richly deserve and to raise you up as you raise up your children!!
I will definetely pray for all of my besties here tonight as i do every night. God Bless all of you and yours!~
With P I endured 32 hours of active labor, 3 hours of pushing (without an epidural because it had run dry), and then had a c-section. So, I thought this time just having a c-section (though I did go into active labor first) things would be so much better. And well, the labor part was better because it was shorter... a few hours of labor and then the OB doc showed up to do my c-section but the recovery has been much, much worse.
I love what you said about I should pray to God to raise me up as I raise my children. I will do just that. It's so hard yet I just have to focus on how blessed I am. I keep telling myself, "One day you are really going to miss holding this screaming baby...." and I know it's true. I love my babies.
Thank you SB. I pray for yall as well. Thank you for the encouragement.
Kate_Te, It's funny I read your suggestion about taking a bubble bath and then P must have read your mind or something because she immediately started begging to, "Take a bubble bath with Mama". So I did take a bubble bath, only it was with my 2 year old. I'm so glad to hear that things are looking up for you!
funny how things make a full circle - the bubble bath story - glad to see ya'll...doin ok over here. told my gramms about trying therapy (she is manic herself, so she can relate) (but I didnt tell her exactly what its for) so i know she will keep on me about it, which is what i need. and looking forward to my zumba class tonight! i need to dance! my work is boringggg (hence me sneaking on here sshh) and still on the hunt for something closer to home. So i need to get my butt out of this chair and just dance!
