Tinky, I am so glad you shared your feelings. I could have literally written that same post 2 years ago after I had Zeb. Fat Baby/Belly envy was a huge part of my emotions for a long time. Once Zeb was home, I found that my DDC was the perfect place for me, but it was rough until then. You are not at all a dark spot -- in fact, I think that is what makes JM so great -- all different kinds of mamas with all different kinds of kids.

Are you pumping? How is it going? I ended up exclusively pumping for Z, so let me know if you need any thoughts...its a tough journey.

Before we left the NICU each night we would do a "No Bradys" dance near Zeb's isolette -- the nurses would just giggle, but I swear it worked Zeb's didn't resolve until about 34 weeks and then he had a couple once we started expecting him to eat and keep up his own temp.

I will definitely send no brady/high sats vibes your way!
