|15-4-2010 - Almost 2 months!
||My mood while writing this blog:|
So it's been almost 2 months since I gave birth. CRAZY! I can't believe how fast time has gone. Things have been going really well. John Jr. has finally passed his birth weight of 7-11.8. He is up to 8-2.4. It took a while he wasn't gaining enough but had a weight check appointment today and he jumped 8oz from last week. He's starting to baby talk over the last week. I planned on Bf and have stuck with it so far. My breast are finally getting use to it. I no longer need the nipple shield!!
I had my 6 wk check up last week and the topic of birth control came up of course. I was going to try something like the patch or depo but was told they most likely don't work while BF. The best thing to use is an IUD. I always thought I didn't want more kids but I also never thought I would be a stay at home mom, and with that being said I froze. DH and are on the fence about another child but I think I'm leaning more towards one more! We want to try sooner rather than later so I may be back by the end of the year!! I want a summer baby! Other than that all n all is good. :o)

- Friday, 16 Apr Great that all is going well... I'm the same as you...maybe one more??? But my dh has cut me off! lol He's getting fixed here in a couple weeks. I would probably have 5 if dh was up for it. My kids are all close in age and our girls are so close... my opinion is the sooner the better for them. It is tough at times on parents though. Since coming home from NICU Logan has been a difficult sleeper. I cherish every moment with him but I'm really tired. I hope for some schedule soon. He's also getting HUGE! He was 7.8 when he left NICU on March 21st and last monday he was already 9.7! Piggy! That's like a lb a week! He's sure making up for his early arrival. NinaBo-Bina
- Friday, 16 Apr I am getting the IUD actually the Mirena and I think I may want to have another in a cpl years so the Mirena stays in for 5 years unless want to conceive and then you just have it removed. You can get pregnant immediately. I cant imagine getting pregnant before my son is 1 year as my body needs to recover and would be really tough to have 2 kids under 2. So good luck with your decisions. P.S. my son just turned 7 weeks today, it's exciting huh? styx
- Thursday, 15 Apr I wouldnt go on any bc while bfing. I went on the mini pill and it dried my milk up :( I would suggest using natural methods. Good job sticking with bfing though! phonics
