Re: ~*~*~May 2013 PAL check in~*~*~

  • I haven't been lurking/posting nearly as much as I thought I would.  DD is amazing, but as I'm sure you all know, quite a handful.  Major props to you moms with twins!  I've no idea how you do it!

    DD has her 2 month appt coming up and I'm terrified because it's her first round of shots (with me in the same room).  She's measuring in the 50th percentile in weight and the 95-98th percentile in length!  Yikes!  I was short and a gymnast, so she gets that from her dad I guess.

    QOTW - obviously I miss feeling her move inside.  I also miss washing her in my tummy (ok, really just washing my tummy... but there was something about it that I really enjoyed).  The most surprising thing... I love all the rolls she's developing, esp on her thighs Smile  I'm so thankful to have a happy thriving baby!

    Hey May mommas!!

    Baby girl is doing well. She sttn and holds her head up like a champ. She's gaining weight and growing like a weed. I'm officially half way through my ML and starting to work from home PT :mobile sad face: it is kinda nice to use my brain for non baby stuff for a few hrs a day.

    QOTW...I miss how easy it was to go to the store! I also miss her moving in my belly and I miss my pregnant belly vs my post pregnant belly.

    What I love so much is smelling her. When she's in bed I miss her smell and I feel like when i go back to work, I may take something that smells like her with me. Not sure if that will help or hurt me.

  • Hi! May I join you ladies? My DD, Julia, was born on May 11th. My original EDD was April 28th... yeah... she was late lol

    J will be 8 weeks on Saturday and I can't believe it. She's lifting her head and has rolled from tummy to back a bunch of times. She's ridiculously strong already. She lunged herself forward a few days ago. I think we've got an early mover on our hands!

    QOTW I miss feeling her move. She was so active that now it's so strange to feel nothing. I also miss the glow... No one has that PP :/

    I love watching her watch me pump. She gives me this really annoyed face like, "Hey! That's MY booby!!!! What do you think you're doing?!" It's hilarious.

  • Hi gals!
    My DD is doing great. We get social smiles everyday and she spends her awake time interested in everything going on around her. She sleeps about 5 to 6 hours in her first night time stretch and is probably over 10 pounds now. She still has a bobby head and hates tummy time so we have to work pretty hard at incorporating it before she starts screaming.

    QOTW: I miss my bump and having her all to myself. I'm most surprised at how I don't mind getting up at night with her at all. I figured I would at least get a little annoyed but so far I haven't at all. I wonder if that will change when I have to go back to work. Which by the way is only 4 weeks away now. Mobile sad face.

    Love to all may mommies!

    Ummm... their 4 month (yes, 4 MONTHS!) check up is this month. Holy moly how the time has flown by. They're just chugging along. Both are almost 13lbs now. I'm such a proud mommy :)

    QOTW ? What two things do you miss most about being pg?  What?s the most surprising thing you are enjoying with your new LO(s)?

    I really really really miss feeling them move. Silas' head sat right under my right boob for months and I would pet him like a cat curled up in my lap. Sawyer would get hiccups and wiggle wiggle wiggle around. I miss that feeling of closeness.

    I miss my surprising confidence in my body. I felt truly beautiful while I was pregnant. Crazy as that sounds, I didn't feel fat or ugly, I felt pregnant and beautiful. 

    I think the most surprising thing I enjoy is kissing their cheeks. I give them kisses alllllll day long. I swear I'm going to be one of those old ladies who kisses everyone's kids someday. Their cheeks are just so cubby and kissable I can't help myself!!

  • Hi May moms!

    Any updates, appointments coming up, or milestones that you'd like to share for you or your LOs? N is growing like a weed! I want him to slow down already. For being a month early, I'm really impressed with how he seems to be rather on track with milestones. It seemed like he started social smiling a bit late, but now he's doing it all the time and it melts my heart.

    QOTW What two things do you miss most about being pg? I loved feeling him move and having it be exclusive to me. And I loved listening to his heartbeat, and sharing that with DS1.

    Whats the most surprising thing you are enjoying with your new LOs? Though sometimes I just wish I could put him down during the day to get something done, I do love when the only thing that can soothe him is my holding him and snuggling. I love feeling like I can protect him from the world, especially since DS1 so often doesn't want snuggles anymore.

    Our little guy is a chunky one! Breastfeeding is going well, he chugs and chugs and he is easily over 11 lb now. He is getting mighty heavy in my teeny arms. He lifts his head pretty well and pushes his feet if something is against him. His social smile has also been around for a couple of weeks and i'm loving it.

    2 things i miss most about being pregnant...
    1. My bump and feeling him move
    2. The anticipation of meeting my little one

    I am enjoying how my older boys are interacting with the baby. They've really adapted well and the way they look at the baby is just so sweet!!

    DS will be 2 months old next week! Where has that time gone? His 2 month check up is in ~2 weeks & I'm beyond anxious! My heart breaks thinking about seeing him get his shots. LO holds his head up very well & his social smile melts my heart!!! We're working on tummy time. He prefers tummy time on my chest to tummy time on his mat. I keep meaning to try tummy time over the Boppy.
     

    QOTW ? What two things do you miss most about being pg?  What?s the most surprising thing you are enjoying with your new LO(s)?

    The two things I miss most about being pregnant are feeling DS move & my bump. I actually felt good about my body when I was pregnant - not so much now :( 

    The most surprising thing I enjoy with DS is diaper changes, except maybe when I get pooped or peed on. But I love him to pieces anyway :)

  • I had DD on may 19th



    Any updates, appointments coming up, or milestones that you'd like to share for you or your LOs? Madison turned 6 weeks on Sunday, she has been social smiling and her head control has been pretty good. At her one month appointment she weighed 10 lbs. I have my check up on the 11th and her 2 month is on the 19th. Not looking forward to watching her get shots :/

    QOTW What two things do you miss most about being pg? Whats the most surprising thing you are enjoying with your new LOs? I miss the kicks and movement and my bump. Most surprising thing would be her wanting to be held by me all the time, I love watching her and her expressions. And her eyes and smile when she sees me, it's so sweet :

    C is 6 weeks old and 12.5 lbs! He loves to eat. He has been pretty fussy lately and I'm hoping it's a phase that will be ending soon. But we sure do love this little guy.

    I don't miss being pregnant at all. Maybe feeling him kick. What I do enjoy are his smiles and him falling asleep on my chest.

  • Can I join you ladies? I was supposed to be a June mama but, had Dalaney May 26th at 605am via emergency C-section due to Pre-E and my terribly high BP. She was 5lb 8oz and 19in then 4lbs 13 oz when we were finally allowed to go home.

    Any updates, appointments coming up, or milestones that you'd like to share for you or your LO(s)?

    Dalaney is now at 7lbs 4oz! She can hold her head up for long spurts and is sleeping in her crib!! Her 2 month appointment is the 26th. 

    QOTW ? What two things do you miss most about being pg?  What?s the most surprising thing you are enjoying with your new LO(s)?

    Umm, I think I miss rubbing my belly and feeling her wiggle. Mostly I did not enjoy pregnancy and had issues that made it hard.

    I love everything about my stink butt. It is surprising how much I love her even when she is screaming for no reason! OMG and she squirts poop like once a day all over the place! It makes me giggle though.

    QOTW ? What two things do you miss most about being pg?  What?s the most surprising thing you are enjoying with your new LO(s)?

    I really really really miss feeling them move. Silas' head sat right under my right boob for months and I would pet him like a cat curled up in my lap. Sawyer would get hiccups and wiggle wiggle wiggle around. I miss that feeling of closeness.

    I miss my surprising confidence in my body. I felt truly beautiful while I was pregnant. Crazy as that sounds, I didn't feel fat or ugly, I felt pregnant and beautiful.

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner. As others have said, LO definitely keeps me busy!  Add to that that my in laws arrived today for a visit and I haven't been on in a while. Ive missed you all!

    Malcolm is doing well. 3 months tomorrow and 13 lbs and eating me alive! He's a LOT more interactive and smiling and laughing now which is incredibly gratifying.  His reflux is better managed now so he's much happier all around. He also rolled over for the first time on Wednesday!  I couldn't believe it. 

    QOTW: EVERYTHING. I still have a lot of unresolved feelings about his unexpected premature arrival. I had a very healthy pregnancy and was not at all ready for it to be over. Rachel articulated well the body confidence I felt then and haven't felt since. 

    I think I'm most surprised by the fact that I have zero desire to return to work. Zilch. My maternity leave officially ended yesterday but I've arranged to work part time from home for a month so that I can delay day care. If we could afford for me not to work, I'd jump at the chance to stay home for the time being.

    I hope everyone's doing well!
