Who's up and around?

DS slept from about 10:30 to 1am, we had a monster nursing session and he's been up ever since... tonight is not my friend.

Re: Who's up and around?

  • I'm up, in excruciating pain from cervadil. Within a half hour of inserting it, I started having painful back labor and contractions every 5 minutes. They gave me an ambien at 11:30 to sleep. It's now 4am and I have not slept at all. Pitocin starts at 6am. Joy.

    GL! Hope your baby arrives quickly and easily! I'm up nursing a sad little one with a stuffy nose. I feel like a suck-tastic mom. I guess LO has caught DS1's cold already?! Thankfully there's no fever yet. Poor baby is miserable though. And all I can do for him is torture him with "little noses" drops and the bulb syringe.

    Ugh that is terrible! GL and I hope you can get some rest!

    I'm up. Poor guy has had such bad gas for almost 24 hours. The gas drops haven't helped. I'm afraid he is going to end up with roids.

    Good luck!  Maybe you won't need the pit?

    I'm up airing out the nips -- DD2's mouth is a little small for my porn star boobs. :(

  • Thanks all. She's coming in to pull the cervadil and check me at 5. I started at about 2cm, and almost completely effaced. If the last 8 hours of pain only got me 1cm more...I may lose it.

    That's a long time to attempt to burp. I usually give it about 3 minutes? DS1 spit up a lot so I'd burp him 5+ min I guess but he usually burped. Unless you have a big spitter or she gets bad gas, I probably wouldn't try that long if she usually doesn't burp for you. Maybe the bottles you're using are just working really well for her and she's not swallowing much air.

  • I'm up. Cervadil is in. Not quite painful, no longer can sleep through the cramping though. Made it from 10:30 to 3 really well. Trying for some more sleep. Really hoping. Cervadil won't come out until about 8:30am.

    Good luck jdunlop!

  • I am here, feeding my babe. Looking forward to getting back in bed :]

    Why does BFing make my body temp so all over the place?! I shiver, then I sweat, repeat. Ugh.

  • I'm up, bwn. Bumping while nursing DS got circ'ed yesterday so diaper changes are no longer quick and easy. The mohel said to use wet washcloths instead of wipes and it's a pain. I told DH that if we have more boys, HE will be responsible for aftercare, since he's the one who feels strongly about circumcising.

    I've been freezing ever since giving birth. When pregnant, I couldn't get enough air.

    GL to those in induction right now!

    Get a tube of aquaphor. Way nicer than Vaseline for a healing circ.

    Good luck to you! About to have my 'last meal' before they start pitocin...some fruit loops and toast. I wish it were French toast, slathered with butter and syrup. Oh, and bacon.

  • GL to those laboring!

    I'm up after a glorious 5 hr stretch of sleep. DH is going to work today and Im debating on waking him to do the diaper change so I can pump a little. Hmm, good wife or cranky wife, who do I want to be.

    Wow, 20min is a really long time. Was she awake that entire time? I would try for a minute or two, reposition, repeat a couple times.

    Umm still up. Good news: Connor finally pooped. Bad news: I had the lights so low that I put my face down there when I opened the diaper to check for poop. BIG mistake. BIG. Got shot in the face, eyes and hair with full-on stream of urine. Rather than going back to bed, I just had to shower and wash my hair. Now I'm wide awake, but at least he's sleeping and much happier.

  • Gl to the ladies in labor! I'm up nursing ds.

    Blindvictory I do make DH take care of DS' diaper changes since he was circ'd today. Lol. I'm afraid of hurting him more, so I figure DH at least knows the parts!

    Our DS was also circ 'd and we used wipes, but they told us to leave his peen alone, just very lightly pat it if needed and just wipe around it. Are you putting petroleum jelly on it? Just make a circle around it with a string of jelly before putting diaper back on at each change. We were able to stop using that on Monday which was 5 days after his circ. he looks fully healed now.

  • Contractions are 23 min. Cervadil will be in for another 3 ish hours. I guess it's doing its job. But I only got 5 hours so hopefully I can rest after and when I get an epi. I'm not going for a metal

  • I'm kind of late to this party, but its 3 am here. DS woke up wanting to be fed, so I tried to put him on the boob, but it is a bit engorged so he screamed bcs he couldn't get anything. I tried to hand express to clear the way and it just wasn't working. I decided to get the pump out and practically had a breakdown trying to find an extension cord to plug it in. I got it going and pumped out a little bit, and he latched right away, for about 2 minutes then went to sleep! Omg!!!
