    I need some advice. My 7 month old son won’t take my breast. He is exclusively breastfed, no bottles with only a minimal amount of food so far. Last night he bit me and I yelled and pulled him away from my breast. Then he did it again with the same response from me. He hasn’t eaten since. He cried himself to sleep hugging my breast. Then…[Read more]

    A friend of mine just posted this video on facebook. I’m not sure if someone has posted this on here already. It’s so nice to see some celebrities promoting breastfeeding.

    illy – it could be early teething (my son got his first tooth between 3-4 months). If it is, you can usually see the buds just under the surface of the gums. Sometimes they can take a while to break through. I’d say that if you can’t see anything near the surface that’s it’s something else.

    I have a question for you ladies. I’ve been taking the Fenugreek, and between that and my lo’s increased suckling my supply is great. If I stop taking the Fenugreek now will my supply decrease? Is it something you need to keep taking or can I just use it when I feel like my supply isn’t keeping up?

    Also, I got almost 8 hours of sleep last night! Fed Liam at 10:00 pm, and we slept until 6:00 am! Whoo Hooo!

  • So, I was due for AF on Sunday. I took HPT’s last Mon, Wed, and Fri. All BFN’s. Then we went away from Friday until tonight. After I got the kids to bed tonight I ran out to the store to get another HPT. I just took it, and got a BFN again. I’m not sure what to think… 21 day cycle last month and apparently 30+ day cycle this month?

  • Thanks lil-pigz. I’m in a TWW period right now and if I am pregnant I will turn 35 during the pregnancy. Just wondered if I fit in this category.

    I got my period back finally yesterday, so now
    I am not so paranoid about TTC with our 3rd. Although this period has NOT been fun so far. Making up for lost time I guess.

    SherB – I didn’t get my period back from the pill – if you take the mini pill (the one safe for breastfeeding) it is a progesterone only pill, so it shouldn’t affect…[Read more]

    I didn’t chart anything this month – as I only found out last Tuesday that everything was in good working order (have had some past issues – you can read my blogs for more) But I I’m on CD 26, probably about 10DPO. If this is a 28 day cycle, I’m due for AF on Thursday I plan to test every morning until AF comes.

    Also, I just wanted to say good for you Lilith for staying firm to your beliefs. Too many women suffer from good patient syndrome, and agree to what the doctor wants just to avoid making a fuss.

    So – I just went to the bathroom and I’m bleeding lightly. I don’t think it’s AF – since it’s a week before schedule. I’m hoping it’s implantation bleeding. 🙂 I guess I’ll just have to wait a bit to see. Maybe I really will be able to give my hubby a great gift on Father’s Day. 🙂 We’re off to the beach for the day, so see you all tonight.

    Does anyone else find breastfeeding to be exhausting? I don’t just mean the frequency of it or the lack of sleep. After I am done with a feed, I feel so physically exhausted I could fall asleep. I feel like I’ve been drained of all my energy, no matter how energetic I was before the feed, or how much sleep I’ve gotten. It usually goes away…[Read more]

    Lots of plus size mums don’t gain that much weight, and sometimes lose weight too. I am not one of them though. I gained 40 lbs with my first, 35 lbs with my second, and this is my third. I’m up about 28 lbs so far in my 30th week, so I figure I’ll gain 40 lbs again with this one. I don’t worry about it too much, my kids are healthy and…[Read more]

    Wow – I only bought three today, cause I was worried what they would think. You ladies are braver than me. 🙂 I’m probably going to end up going back though if these are all negative. So maybe it is a good idea to stock up – I’ll save on gas. lol
