Thanks girls, it's good to know we all struggle through these "labor pains" together. I can hardly walk and my bladder doesn't empty completely. The put a catheter in and I filled nearly the entire bag, it was 600-800 ml, when I was in the hospital that first day. I have to keep running back to the bathroom to try to void completely or else I'm hobbling to get around. It's so tough being alone with her when I can't make quick bathroom trips.



Sorry the pictures were links, I'm on my iPad so it doesn't let me click the http code page.



She's a cuddle bug like I knew she'd be. The whole fam says not to hold and spoil her but yeah she won't sleep without being held sometimes. Typing with one hand on IPad as we speak.



How are you ladies doing? Love the baby pics and congrats to all mummy's catching up on labor dust! Good luck to the cancer sign babies to come!

Ugh, I hate catheters! It wasn't so bad with this delivery because they put it in and took it out while I was still numb.. last time they put it in long before they numbed me and took it out after I regained feeling and I was completely miserable. Are you still in the hospital? Don't be afraid to take advantage of the nursery if you're alone in your room, I felt guilty asking the nurses to watch her but sometimes you gotta ask for help when you need it. And Layla definitely has her moments when she just wants to be held too, it's usually when she's awake though. I normally have to hold her and rock her until she falls asleep, then I lay her down and she stays asleep (luckily she's a heavy sleeper).

I was really hoping to go naturally but at my appt last thursday for 39+3 I asked about an induction but my doc said sorry no can do I'm going on vacation tomorrow! He gets back the 29th and the soonest available date for an elective induction is July 5th! He says he can induce me on the 2nd because ill be 41 weeks and its a medical necessity (I had a placental abruption with ds1 at 40 weeks and at 41 weeks the risk of abruption goes up so they won't let me go past 41)

I'm really considering going to jump on my friends trampoline lol would that be unwise? Since I'm full term it won't hurt baby boy will it?

I dont think it would hurt Lol



I dont think it will help either though.



I have walked and walked and walked so much my shin hurts so bad. I tried walking on uneven surfaces, doing squats. Nothing helps!



If I were you I would just relax. Thats what I am doing now. At least when we go into labor we will be all rested and have some energy left.

Ayzya - I know exactly what you mean... I had planned to bf and I was worrying that she wasn't getting anything to eat while we were in the hospital. Even though they assured me the little bit of colostrum was plenty for her. I guess just being a new mommy I'm going to worry about everything. Anyway, I've been bottle feeding and today I noticed that my milk was coming in so I decided to try. She got enough to atleast burp. Just don't feel guilty and know you're not the only one. She also has a tough of jaundice but the level wasn't high enough to keep the her. Go to see her pediatrician tomorrow to check that and keep and eye on her shoulder. Apparently when they were pulling her out during delivery, her nerves in her shoulder got pulle, brachial plexus is I believe what it's called. I'm hoping it's just mild and nothing that would need surgery. The dr seems to think it'll be ok. She seems to be using it a little more each day.

If ur not making enough to bf ull know. Baby will cry when done and act hungry- root, smack lips, stick tongue out, etc. I didn't make enough w dd1 n all she did was cry, lost weight every day, would feed for an hour on each side and was never full. By 3 months she was so pale and hadn't gained anything but a few ozs. Her face looked sunken in :*( I never got engorged either. And my milk came in day 1 w both girls in hosp. But I was under tons of stress didn't eat/drink lost weight too fast.

Well I OFFICIALLY feel like a mother.. poor Layla I guess ate too much and projectile vomited all over me. It shot out of her mouth AND her nose, poor thing. She looked so scared as it was happening and it totally took me by surprise. I felt so bad for her because she was freaking out afterwards and was soaked (we both were lol). But after a nice, warm bath she finally calmed down and is sleeping now. :)



Oh, and do you ladies know anything I can do for her dry skin? I put lotion on her every day, sometimes twice a day, but after I took her out of the bath tonight the skin was just kinda rubbing off of her. It's mostly on her forehead and one of her legs. I just keep putting lotion on it but I didn't know if there was anything else I could do. It isn't red or irritated, just dry.

Keep an eye on that vomiting, for pyloric stenosis.



Also I put baby oil on my son.after his baths and lotion thru the day but she very well could have eczema also. Try baby oil tho or aqua 4
