    OMG I am so damn sick of PUMPING! My daughter just does not get the whole latching thing. I know I’m doing it right… I looked up a lot of stuff on the internet including videos on how to breastfeed. I refuse to use the nipple shield forever, plus it hurts cuz she pinches it between her gums sometimes. She’s become quite lazy when it come to…[Read more]

    so i got through my entire pregnancy (and life for that matter) without getting a single stretch mark… only to get stretch marks on my breasts AFTER delivery due to engorgement! ahh well… i can’t complain, just funny how that works sometimes.

    can anyone give me any advice on how to get my baby to latch? she is almost 4 weeks old and was tiny when she was born… 4 lb 6 oz… and we have tried everything as far as feeding goes. she had low blood sugar the first day, so we started out cup feeding her formula. i also began pumping right away, and that was cup fed to her in the…[Read more]

    thank you sooo much for all of the advice everyone! i’m sure many of you can relate, but it’s frustrating when no one can at least understand where you are coming from! maybe i am fine and i am over reacting, and hopefull i am… but WHY take that risk…. you know?!? i have stopped the self exams, which is really kinda hard for me because i…[Read more]

    jbtd— this just happened a few days ago to you? i am so sorry to hear that, i cant imagine how you are coping with it. your doctors should take this pretty seriously from now on. hopefully next time they will check your cervix early and can prevent this from happening again with a cerclage. i am at 24 weeks now, and i can’t imagine losing my…[Read more]

    charli–i was also wondering how much you were dilated when they found out.

  • Mama2B011010 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    to answer your questions, no… i haven’t had any previous pregnancies or miscarriages, and i dont have any of the other conditions associated with incompetent cervix. i also haven’t had too frequent of contractions, discharge, or strong pressure in my pelvis. these are the reasons that no one will check me out right now… and to a certain…[Read more]

    kath– that sounds like braxton hicks contractions.

    i really need advice from you all going through this. so i mentioned earlier that i discovered i was dilated at 1 cm. not only i am around 1 cm, but my cervix is much softer than it usually is. i am only 23 weeks, so i was concerned and called 2 nurses and they said that i should be fine.…[Read more]

    baby723–my mother had surgery when she was pregnant with me 24 years ago. if they could do it then, they can do it now! i’m sure everything will turn out beautifully for you and your baby 🙂

    my daughter was born on december 23rd at just 4lb6oz. since she is so small, latching has been near impossible. i tried using a nipple shield, which worked for her… but caused chapping and scabbing on my nipples after a week or so. so ever since, i have been pumping exclusively. i loved the medela hospital grade pump that i was able to use…[Read more]

  • Mama2B011010 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    at least 2-4 oz. more is always ok!

  • Mama2B011010 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    they say a hospital grade one. i really liked the medela pump my hospital had, but they are like $400. i have the medela pump in style. it’s an electric dual pump… probably the most popular one. but even that is $275. i bought mine used on craigslist and just boiled all of the plactic parts.

    i’m still EP. god i’m so tired of it. i got lazy and started doing it 4-6 times a day instead of 8. i just CAN’T do it every 3 hours! my nipple STILL hurt and are constantly pink and irritated… and i am almost 7 weeks PP. my let down has really slowed down too. it takes a good 5 or 10 minutes before i can get streams instead of drops.…[Read more]

    i am confused about figuring out what size shield to use. when i was in the hospital, they gave me new shields that were one size up from standard. i am bigger busted, but not enormous (i don’t know what size exactly, but i overflow out of a 34DD). i have average sized areolas and nipples (i think). sorry if TMI btw. the thing is that when i…[Read more]

    babybellybliss–have you tried some of the recommendations to increase milk supply? the herb fenugreek is supposed to increase supply… up to 500%. it’s comes in the forms of seeds, teas, leafy greens, and pill form. it’s most potent in pill form. i myself haven’t been able to find it in a store yet, but i only checked walgreen’s and a local…[Read more]

    i highly recommend the moby wrap. its a bit daunting when you see how much fabric there is, but it is really nice to have. so comfortable! you can order it from target.com.
