Re: Darn bilirubin...

She was born at 36 weeks, had bruising from the vacuum extractor, and I had cholestasis, so that all may have contributed.

Re: Weightloss?

I'm a couple pounds down below my pre-pregnancy weight, but my belly is still huge. I'm sure I will start gaining weight once I stop breastfeeding though.

Re: Darn bilirubin...

Sorry! Alaric's levels were a little high, but we didn't need the lights. I was stuck in the hospital for a week with my daughter. It was hard not to be able to cuddle her.

Re: Quirky strange baby!

Alaric definitely prefers snuggling in the breastfeeding position, sort of horizontal as opposed to being over my shoulder.

Re: Changing a boys diaper is easier than changing girls!

I've had some amazing fire hose experiences, including when he peed up his own nose and then sneezed pee everywhere. But, since he poops about 10 times a day I have to say I enjoy not worrying about...

Re: Postpartum Moms - bleeding

I'm a little over two weeks now. It is more than just spotting, but sometimes it stops for most of the day, and then comes out in a gush. I was wondering myself how long it normally lasts since I...

Re: wits end (long vent)

I'm sorry you are going through all that. My daughter was really colicky and gassy (nothing like the issues Natania is having) and I didn't figure out she had a dairy allergy until I tried a bottle...

Re: Bad news.... Updated

I have no words to say how sorry I am. It just doesn't seem fair to lose a baby that late. I hope you can find comfort and healing and your friends and family help you grieve for as long as you...

Re: Mommas with Babes already - What kind of diapers and what size?

I had a mix of Pampers and Huggies newborn size left over from my daughter. The Huggies seem marginally better but his cord just fell off so I don't really need the cutout. He pees out the tops or...

Re: Epidurals...btdt question

Personally, pushing was way easier than contractions. With my first, I had IV narcotics, no epidural, but contractions were horrible. I don't remember the pushing hurting too badly. This time I...

Re: Well..I'm uneven...

Just try pushing the smaller one. I ended up really uneven after nursing my daughter because my right produced so much more than my left.

Re: Membrane Stripping

I'm at the hospital being induced and she did sweep my membranes when I was about3cm. Contractions maybe got stronger, but they then stalled out a bit.

Re: Amnion transitional - have to wait a few more days.

That sounds like cholestasis to me. Which bile acid was high, if you remember? I knew when mine started kicking in around 24 weeks since I had it last time, but it took a while for it to show up...
