It's mind-blowing when I grew up in a small town, and my mom stayed home (though she watched other kids to earn some $$).
EXACTLY the same here! I am a CA native though so I don't know cheap anything but I did grow up in a rather small town so it was cheaper than the city's I have since lived in. DH is the same and sometimes we joke that we will just pack it all up and move to the country, buy a house for like $300k (which is nothing here!) and live off the land. The daily grind of the city can get to you after a while. We do have a nice savings for a new home so hopefully that dream will come true in the next year or so.

DP - Sorry to hear about Stella's wight gain troubles. I bet once you start pumping, your supply will come in plenty and you wont have to supplement. Hang in there! BF is tough work but so worth it! I nursed DS for 14 months and pumped at work until he was 11 months.

Thank you guys. It's just frustrating since she is attached to me ALL the time. I knew though that a lot of times she was just sucking and not feeding- that's why I asked about it and offered her a paci. I'm spending today with her feeding and pumping and hoofing for success at the doctor tomorrow. I just want her to be satisfied and if it means giving formula I am ok with that, as long as she is

Made it my first lc day yesterday. I'm so ready to get this baby weight off and be back into my clothes! I'm hoping to see the 120s this week

DP congrats on the one day down. Keep us updated on Stella.

At the follow up appointment yesterday the midwife said there are many reasons for a miscarriage, but most likely the low progesterone could have caused it. It's hard when you want something so bad, but your body is not cooperating, and you really don't know the reason. Hopefully the specialist has the answer and our baby dreams will come true.

My weekly induction menu and shopping list is done! I'll hit the store tonight and be ready to go tomorrow. I may switch to Paleo at some point, but for now I need at least two weeks of clean induction.

DP - Good job!

Carlini - Im hoping its just the progesterone too, its totally treatable! I think they typically have you start supplementing after O. Good work on the list and plan! I am drawn to paleo but eat more primal because I cant give up my cheese and half n half.

I am down 11 lbs now and feeling good. O should be sometime next week and DH and I are ready for it!

I would start my progesterone supps after CD 14 until I got my period, and then when I got pregnant I stayed on the pills til I was 12 weeks along. I had a couple months under my belt of taking the progesterone for the second half of my cycle before I got pregnant. That might be just the boost you need to get the sticky baby! I was also sent to a blood disorder specialist to confirm I didn't have the clotting disorder.

I am having a hard time with my body, like 4 outfit changes before I'm out the door and still feeling like it's a fat day. I finally caved and put on the larger sized jeans I had tucked away, and then as soon as I got to work I got a compliment on them - I was like thanks, but I don't want these to look good because they're a larger size! so good job to you ladies losing weight lately!

Krissy I wanted RX progesterone so I could start taking it at 3dpo but the midwife would not prescribe them. He did once I get PG, but I think it was too late by then. Did you have a HSG done? Be honest, how was it?

For breakfast I had deviled eggs, bacon, and tomato slices. Lunch is a big salad with chicken. Dinner is a cheeseburger and broccoli.

DH and I had a long talk last night, and it looks like his job is coming to an end in the next month or so. We'll need to start working on plan B.

Have a great day everyone!

Lol! Be honest? I totally f-bombed. That hurt feeling the fluid push through my tubes! Some people it might not hurt but it wasn't a fun moment for me, but it doesn't take long at all. The way everything lit up was weird looking! I hope the midwife will hook you up with the supps, I think they are such an asset to those ttc. Just one more piece of the puzzle to get a baby cooking!

I called the doc to set up an rx for loloestrin from the sample packet my endo gave me, they said they don't want me on any bc pills until I get my migraines and blood pressure under bettter control. So I have to make an appt to discuss my options. I was kinda ticked because I know the migraines are related to my hormones, and on a personal note the endo was taking the same bc pills and she gets migraines as well, so i've got dueling dr's.

I took my temp yesterday morning and this morning since my period started. I'm glad, too, because maybe it will paint a clearer picture of what's going on for me since my prior cycle was 37 days, and this one was 31 days

Ben turned 10 months old yesterday! Where has the time gone?!

It's so frustrating when doctors (the supposed "experts") don't agree on things! When my bp was up a few years back, they just changed me to a progestin-only birth control pill ("mini-pill"); they didn't tell me no pill at all.

I have a left over progesterone RX with 3 refills that I will use in the luteal phase. I should be working with the RE by time the refills run out.

So Krissy, when are you getting back on LC? I've had to bump up to the larger size many times, and it sucks! But you know you can fix it! I was only on BC for a short time back in 2005 so I can't really help there. We used condoms, but I know they're not right for everyone.

Jilly I'm excited you're giving charting a try.

Well stella didn't gain enough so we have to start supplementing with formula. I'm also going to start on mothers milk tea and fenugreek tomorrow. Hoping my little peanut starts to gain!

LOL! i love you for that. I gotta make some changes, my body is all outta wack. Mind over matter, right? I just gotta think to myself, imagine this summer, 30 lbs lighter... and there's my motivation.

DP - i know it's hard on our hearts to have to supplement. but as long as she starts growing, you'll know you're doing what's right for her.

So i fell last night, hard on my tail bone. In so much pain now I can hardly walk or move. To make matters worse, my yearly bronchittis type cough has started up too, keeping me up at night. And just coughing hurts my back. Ugh so not what I needed at almost 33 weeks. I've been up since 4am because I can't stop coughing. I feel like a mess.

Will they allow you to move back to just milk if you start making more? I'm sorry it isn't what you wanted, but hopefully she will start growing and you will start producing more milk. I'm hoping to breast feed, but worried that my milk won't come in or something else will go wrong.

Ouch! Are you going to call your doctor today? I would call just to check in. That fall sounds painful. My friend got a bad cough around 30 weeks and ended up dislocating her rib from coughing. I hope your cough doesn't get too bad and that your back starts to feel better. I don't know what your work schedule is, but hopefully you have a few days to relax and allow yourself to heal.



I feel like I've arrived back in the first trimester. I've been so tired this week! Last night I took a nap from 8-10 pm then fell back asleep at 12 and slept soundly until 9 am. I'm feeling rested for the first time in a week! We have no plans this weekend, so I'm looking forward to just relaxing and not running around to tons of different events.

I don't know Suzie. We meet again Monday with the lactation consultant so ill get a better idea then I'm sure. I know ill be taking her in for regular weight checks for awhile. I honestly don't mind giving her the formula as long as she's still mainly taking in breast milk. Right now she's only getting 3-8oz formula a day so it's very little.
And my princess was a champ with the bottle last night. She wouldn't take it at first but once she got the hang of it she was great, even let her big brother feed her

I might call, I can walk a little bit now. I see the midwife on Monday. Trying to rest up today. Hopefully I'll be able to make it to work on Monday!

Enjoy all the rest you can now! Have you gotten any pregnancy insomnia? I hate it!

Disney Princess- That is adorable! He probably really enjoyed being able to feed her!

Lori- I have slept awful all week! I think that is why my body had finally had enough and I passed out for so long last night! First, on the couch then in bed! I'm glad you are feeling a bit better. Hopefully, it will keep improving quickly!

Hi ladies! Busy, busy here. I had to attend a work conference on Thu & Fri and then my sister and BIL were here for the weekend. I am just now getting a break and I have grocery shopping and laundry to do!

Anyway, still on plan though I am up 6lbs! Remember I have mentioned in the past that I was noticing a pattern of water retention around O? Well I am starting to believe it is true! I am due to O any day now.

DP - that pic melts my heart!

Lori - I am so sorry about the fall. Take care of yourself and take it easy!

I had pregnancy insomnia. Awful!

Stella is doing great with the formula. I'm anxious to meet with the lc tomorrow because I think I'm going to discuss keeping her supplemented with it. She falls asleep better, seems more alert, is less fussy...it's vey apparent that my milk isn't satisfying her. I'm going to keep bf though, just going to try to see if I can do both and keep my milk supply.

Went way for the weekend to visit family for my niece's 6th birthday party. Thank goodness Ben is a champ in the car because it's a 4-hour drive each way, and we're going back down again in two weeks! My BIL is Chinese, so they do a big party every year for Chinese New Year, and his mother makes a ridiculous amount of real Chinese food, including literally hundreds of dumplings!

I know when I was pregnant, everyone kept talking about how much energy I would have after I got through that first trimester. Umm, never happened for me! I was tired throughout. But I didn't have any other "symptoms," really, so I can't complain

I'm so glad to hear she's doing well with the formula. I fought it so hard because "they" scare you by saying how your baby will have nipple confusion, formula-fed babies have more health problems, etc. None of that has been true for us - he still latched on even after he started drinking from bottles. I understand the health benefits of BFing, but I think this nearly militant approach to shaming mothers into it causes a lot more heartache than need be, especially for new mothers who are already hormonal from having just given birth! Plus, if she's doing well with the formula, even if your supply increases, maybe you can start pumping and building a stash of breastmilk for times when you might not be with her. And when you start feeding purees (if you do purees), you can mix breastmilk into the food, too.

I totally agree jilly! I'm not opposed to formula feeding either, and surprisingly the lactation consultant I've been seeing isn't either. She said as long as the baby is getting some breastmilk she is getting the benefits from it.
But yes, I am already building my stash, though slowly right now. I hope to have a good amount frozen to keep her on breast milk for 6 months even if I discontinue it.
The good news- Stella is back to her birthweight! It looks like my milk increased and the formula helped. The lc told me to keep doing what I'm doing and offer formula only if the baby seems she needs it. She wants me to try to pump more to keep my supply up, which is hard but I'm doing my best. I'm so glad this worked though and I'm hoping I don't have issues now. Now if only I can put the baby down for 3 seconds!
Anyone use a moby wrap?

I haven't had really many other symptoms, so I shouldn't complain either! It is just making me even more emotional because I'm tired! ha ha

I'm so glad Stella is back up weight wise and doing great!


Okay, now I'm just venting. Doctor offices! So, the only thing I don't like about my doctor office is that they only do u/s on Wed. and Thurs. mornings. This means I have to take time off work anytime I need an u/s. This Thursday I had my follow up appointment scheduled from the anatomy scan, they wanted to recheck a few things. Well, they call today and have to cancel due to "a family emergency". Apparently, they don't have a back up person. Mike and I both took the day off so we could both be there. We can't just rearrange our day off in our lines of work. They said we could go to a private place, but I checked into it and it would cost at least $125.00 more.

I call back and reschedule my appointment for next Thursday (2/7). They happen to have a 12:30 and I happen to have a half day that day (getting off at 11:30). Then, she informs me that they will call if "they need me to come in earlier due to lack of appointment". Well no, I can't just leave work early. That's not how my job works. I was being AS NICE AS POSSIBLE. The woman had the galls to tell me she didn't know why she was getting this attitude, when it was a family emergency. I said I am upset, I wasn't giving attitude. However, it does upset me that they are now basically saying they may cancel on me a second week because I can't just leave work at their convenience.

Gah!!! Doctor offices!! I don't know why they wouldn't have a back up person anyway! I feel bad being upset, because I know it is a family emergency, but really I think I'm still allowed to be a little upset about the wasted day off.

DP - Both I and DS hated the Moby but loved the Ergo. DS would only be carried in it until about 9 mo though.

Suzie - that blows and I would totally be ticked!

Just waiting to O over here, any day now.

I was really as polite as I could possibly be, especially with the lack of sleep and my super emotional self right now!

The only time I got remotely "attitude" was when she told me that they could possibly call me next Thursday wanting me to come in early if they don't fill in the appointments between the last appointment and mine. Um, that just isn't how the world works. I can't leave work on a whim because it is more convenient for them. I mean she is only there two half days a week anyways, they can't keep her there for all scheduled appointments?

That is SO inconvenient! Honestly! My dr. had to bump my appointment up from 11:30 to 8:30. I was kind of irritated and they did it 3 weeks in advance, lol. This kinda thing would really burn me up. Is this the only doctor in town? I don't think I talked about it here but I switched doctors in between 8 and 12 weeks. Never looked back! No regrets.

They have called me ahead of time to reschedule at least three appointments due to doctors "not being there that day." I'm not sure if the doctors just take personal days after figuring out who works when or what, but I have always taking those in stride, because they don't effect my work schedule.

I absolutely love the doctors there and that is why I have put up with the ultrasounds only being in the mornings on those days period. I would have never assumed they didn't have a back up plan for if the lady was out a day!

I really would have still not been upset, if we hadn't made the appointment a month in advance and both taken the day off work to go to it. After trying to say I had an attitude, which I promise I kept my cool, the lady then tried to say she understood because she took a day off last week for a toothache and then couldn't see a dentist. I didn't even get into how that was different, since I had my appointment a month in advance and didn't take off "hoping to be seen".

I have an e-mail out currently seeing if I can just go ahead and switch my personal day from this Thursday to next Thursday. That way I can just make an earlier appt and not risk being called last minute and not being able to make it. I don't even know if that is possible though. I haven't done it before, and neither coworker that I asked had either.

I'm participating in a bit of a dietary "reset" with a group of fellow weight loss surgery friends. Despite having had a large portion of my stomach actually removed, I can eat large quantities of food again. So, we're doing a week of almost all liquids (I'm essentially doing an old school Slim Fast plan - shakes during the day and then a "sensible dinner") to see if we can get back some of the quantity restriction we once had. So today, I had a protein shake for breakfast, another for lunch, a cup of warm broth this afternoon, and a low-carb dinner (crock pot bbq shredded pork with side of broccoli with butter, cream, and cheese). When I get the munchies, I have a diet soda. Other than that, just some lemon water. One day down...

I think we used it maybe two or three times. But different babies like different things; Ben wasn't one who needed to be held all the time. When we went out, I used a Lillebaby (sp?) carrier, which is pretty much identical to the Ergo. I used that when I had to fly with him at 3 months old, when we went apple picking, when we went to a petting zoo, and a handful of other times. It worked much better for us than the Moby.
