I’m going to ask the most ignorant, dumbest question that doesn’t need an answer. Why do men become gynecologists? Seriously.
On to the next.
I got the green light to proceed with my regular pre-pregnancy routines! That means I can run, jump, and lift to my heart’s delight. I currently weigh 118lbs as of last night –that’s 7 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight –so I think I have a pretty good head start on this whole get-back-in-shape thing. I do feel a little flatter in the badonk area so there’s going to be a lot of squatting going on around here.
[my stepmom: “if you were born a boy, he is what you would look like.”]
Leonardo has started to sleep through the night! We have a routine going which begins around 6-8pm depending on when he wants to stir awake. If he doesn’t stir awake by around 8:30pm, I wake him up myself and bathe him. He usually falls asleep by 11pm and well wake up around 5-7am depending on when he fell asleep. I guess you can say I’ve been a happy little chap lately. A well rested mama is a happy mama afterall, no?
Breastfeeding. Oy vey. I don’t remember it being this difficult with Trina. During the first month I just fought with Leo to keep nursing even though I knew he wasn’t getting any milk because that’s what I was told to do. That made for a very frustrated baby and an incredibly sleep deprived mama because IT WAS NOT WORKING. Instead I figured out something that does work for me. I was recommended Fenugreek vitamins by a friend I grew up with long ago. I take two of those three times a day with Blessed Thistle and have been doing so for nearly the past 2 weeks. It is working but it’s a slow progress so to avoid an angry baby, I pump every 2 1/2 hours and supplement with formula for the remainder of oz he needs to be kept happy. I can pump a little over 3oz now from barely 2oz a week ago. :)
I need to go change out of my shirt because I can smell spit-up milk and it’s coming from me…
