Re: bad news, good news

  • bad news: poop explosion at 5:30 am.

    good news: because LO got me up, I could pump super early, which I am usually too lazy to get up to do. got lots out! good start, if earlier than desired.

  • Ooo I like this.

    Bad news...I am still so frustrated with my slow recovery. I know how much the endorphins from some exercise would do me good and it's driving me nuts just lying around.

    Good news...baby girl has decided to start sleeping for 3 and 4 hour stretches! She also has more happy awake time rather than needing constant soothing via breastfeeding. I know this could all end in 5 minutes but I like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

  • Bad news: LO will only stop crying when I hold her

    Good news: she snuggles extra close when she's upset and makes cooing noises into my chest.

    I will have to remember this when she is an obnoxious teenager.

  • Bad news: LO is going thru a growth spurt.

    Good news: LO has become more smiley usually on changing table or pooping.

    Same here! He will cry for DH. And only stops if I hold him. But when he snuggles so close and stops crying and slows his breathing is so sweet.

    Good news: I get to get away for a bit tonight to see my students graduate. Can't wait to see them.

    Bad news: I'm anxious about leaving baby. He'll be fine with my MIL but I don't like leaving him. Lol

    Bad news - She has been breastfeeding exclusively for over 10 days, so I no longer get to sleep through the 6:00 am feeding while DH feeds her (and he conveniently forgets that he promised to give me a break in the morning before he goes to work). 

    Good news - She is exclusively breastfeeding at 2+ months, which I never thought would be possible when she was in the Nicu and I was pumping constantly.

  • Bad news---I'm questioning whether or not I want to cloth diaper...haven't told H yet...we invested a lot of money in it...

    Good news---Vi is growing like a weed! She grew 2 1/4 inches since birth and almost 2 lbs. :)

  • Bad news... we are regressing with nighttime sleeps. I think we got cocky and thought we had a "routine". It lasted like... 2 days?

    Good news.. now we have more realistic expectations. Clearly LO is in charge here. Ha!?

    Bad News: I'm super tired already today, G is unusually fussy for the morning time, and H is working late tonight so the day seems like it will stretch on forever.

    Good News: I'm going to a breastfeeding support group at the women's hospital today. I'm hoping for some renewed motivation and enthusiasm.
  • Bad news: I've been up since 3 am... Over 7 hrs now. NBR: my dad is in the hospital.

    Good news: J is developing so much. I'm having so much fun watching him. It's truly amazing. NBR: they are finishing up the floors in our new home next up cabinets!

  • Bad news, dd had me up all night fussing and spitting up precious breast milk. Then she was hungry so I almost went thru my entire small fridge stash. I don't know if I'm going to get it back.

    Good news, she looks so cute sleeping right now.

  • Bad News: LO hasn't been cuddling with us as much lately (that is my favorite thing to do with her)

    Good News: LO is up much more during the day now and she's REALLY alert when she's awake...and smiles so much! :)


  • Bad news: I've been feeling a lot of pressure down below and was scared of a prolapse, so I went to the doctor last Friday.

    Good news: I was diagnosed with constipation. I increased my colace dose and started eating dried apricots everyday. Things seem to be moving along quite nicely, and I no longer feel the pressure. 

    Question: do dried apricots work for everyone? If so, how did I not know this?

  • Good news: this morning Declan woke up all smiles! It was great! He is focusing so well and smiles whenever he focuses on me.

    Bad news: when DH gets up with him at night he falls asleep and they sleep in the recliner for hours before I realize he never put him back in his bed. Now he is starting to want to sleep in my arms all day long. Both good and bad.

  • Bad news: I had an anxiety attack relapse. I was doing really well, but I may have to speak to a counselor about how I've been feeling.

    Good news: The sun is shining, and it's my birthday. I have a trip planned to the botanical garden, and I'm so excited.

  • Bad news: DS has been having trouble getting to sleep for naps. 

    Good news: I have a feeling this means he is ready to go to just one nap. This would make it a lot easier to coordinate with DD napping and eating schedule. I could get a chance to nap everyday!

  • Bad news: my nipples are burning and they are still slat so I'm still using the shield. Also I finally got a hands free pumping bra but it won't fit my huge boobs.

  • Good news. No matter how fussy or how much sleep LO gets during the day he still sleeps good at night.
    Bad news, I am still not sleeping good at night and I'm back to having bathroom issues.

    Good News: I'm going to a breastfeeding support group at the women's hospital today. I'm hoping for some renewed motivation and enthusiasm.


    I went to one Monday night, for the sheer fact that I need to not be so anxious about being alone in public with him, and to really see if it could help swing my moods a little bit. It was amazing and absolutely what I needed, even though there was a tiny turnout. It was so nice being able to fire off my fears and concerns to people who were making similar baby choices or who had been there already. I hope you're able to get the support you're looking for and that it's a good experience for you!

    Good news: LO slept in the pnp for the first time last night. It was just as good of a night as it is when we cosleep.

    Bad news: I couldn't believe it and so I didn't sleep either because I just knew he was going to wake up. Sigh. Hopefully tonight will be just as smooth, and maybe I will actually doze off this time.
  • Bad news: Todd was super fussy last night.

    Good news: DH took over and he told me that he felt like he really bonded him for the first time.

    Bad news:  I'm feeling really, really low today for a number of reasons.  One of which is that our BF seems to be regressing.  He was getting better and better at transferring milk but has had a major regression this week and is not getting as much which is effecting my supply (despite my pumping).

     Good news:  He seems to be responding to the meds I'm giving him for reflux.  Haven't perfected the dosage yet but at least he's not screaming in agony the entire day.  That was horrifying.

  • Good news: Baby girl has been sleeping 6 to 7 hour stretches at night for the past couple nights! I've been waking up completely engorged , but I will take it! She is seriously the easiest baby , I am extremely lucky.

    Bad news : My husband has been OOT for work since may 13th , so we are all missing him very very badly, the even worse part? He still has a month to go.. We haven't been able to have sex since before DD2 was born in April and I'm about to lose my mind !!

  • Bad news:  M's belly button is infected.  They put her on antibiotics, oral and topical.  Labs came back three days later and the bacteria causing the infection is resistant to the meds.  New round of antibiotics, oral and topical and the first warning on the meds is "Not to be used in children under two months."  After consults with my peds, CHOP peds and an infectious disease doctor, this is the best option.  If no improvement by Friday, she'll need IV meds.

     

    Good news:  She takes the oral meds like a champ and has not cried once when the doctors or we have had to poke and prod her belly button.  So it is not causing her pain and her eating, sleeping and sweet sweet demeanor have all remained.

    I'd put a Movember mustache fail, but then
    you'd all have to look at it until February.
  • Bad news: my bad news seems to be the most common today. Up all night with a fussy spitty screaming baby..
    Good news? Chiropractor snap crackle popped my whole back and it feels fabulous
    Now if only LO would sleep long enough for me to.get a nap....
