Parenting after a Loss

Updated- Good juju request

Hey chicas! 

Not how I thought I'd be introing over here, but I could really use some extra strong juju. Pebbles had a rough start to life and we are still struggling with weight loss, over 2 weeks after her barely term birth. We've been working hard all week to feed from both breasts every 2 hours and keep her sleeping in between. We go in for a recheck today and I am truly hoping some PAL love will bump that scale over a few notches. 

ETA: This is a post and run, I'll be back after the pedi appointment. 

Update: Pebbles is 6 lbs 7 oz, including the urine she let loose in the weighing chair, but we'll take it!!! This means she is officially back to birth weight for the first time in 2.5 weeks. ::sigh of relief:: Thanks for the love ladies. It worked!

    Sometimes it takes a little bit to get the weight gain going.  I was once there myself to a lesser degree (also had a 37 weeker).  Hopefully things are going in the right direction!

  • Seriously???

    Petra--you finally have a baby after all this time.  She's a healthy full-term baby.  Jaundice and weight loss are very very normal in infants and generally not life-threatening in FULL TERM babies.  What's with the desperate need to create drama that just isn't there??  There are so many women who would do anything to have what you have--not to mention the moms and babies here who have legitimate health issues.  You need to get over yourself and figure out how to be happy without being an insensitive attention whore.

    What's with the need to get up in her business? No one really asked you for your opinion if it is life threatening, I would *think* that'd be up to her doctor. Do you have her chart? Are you in charge of her care? Nooooooooooooope.

    You know, I think you need to get yourself a cookie or something, because uncalled for dumbness is a sign of hunger and low blood sugar.

    You need to back the eff off. This is a drama free board and any attempt to start is not welcome. This is not the pain Olympics and she is entitled to feel however she feels AND ask for support.

    I've got to say that there is something to be said for this dose of reality.  

    There are women, here, PgAL, TTCAL, and otherwise who are struggling with truly scary and life threatening issues for themselves and their LOs (if they've been lucky enough to get pregnant).  Pebbles was born full term and, from all that Petra has posted, is struggling with very normative bumps in the road.  

    While everything seems magnified when it's us or our LO, let's try to get a bit of a grip on reality.  Most, if not all, babies fall below their birth weight.  Many babies struggle with jaundice.  37 weeks is full term.  Those are all facts.

    Are you for real? Whatever issues you have with Petra, this is NOT the place. She is as entitled as any of us to ask for support.

    Petra, good luck at the Pedi!! Have they discussed fortifying your BM? We did that for few months with our peanuts, and it worked wonderfully!

    WTF?! This was totally uncalled for. A fellow bumpie and her baby are struggling. Who are you to judge? She came to ask for support and you attacked her and called her names. Just because someone has a full term baby doesn't mean the worrying stops. Sure there are women who are struggling to have a baby but does that mean those who have them don't struggle?

    You clearly have some really messed up anger issues. I'm a little appalled.
