    You basically explained why I formula feed (although I have mild OCD and associated anxiety rather than mania). Happy and healthy mom = happy and healthy baby.  I've never regretted making that choice and 'm glad you feel confidant in making your own choice! 

    @lablover78
    Congrats!! Enjoy those first few days and weeks! It goes by SOOOOO fast! 

    And for the record, I'm glad I'm not the only one who needed anti-nausea meds while prepping for c-section. Haha, I had never felt anything like that before -- and I am an anxious person! I thought I was going to either pass out or vomit all over everyone. I have no idea if it was all the meds I had been on for the pre-eclampsia and then induction, but it was super intense! We were just waiting for them to wheel me over to the c-section room (OR?) and I was like, "OK, I feel like I'm going to throw up" - and my husband raced down the hall to the nurse's station to get my nurse and medicine!

    I actually think I sorta blanked out in the c/section because I really don't remember the moment of her birth -- I have a vague recollection of them holding up a very slimy baby - but I can't remember her crying or what anyone said.  Oh well! I did it all for the baby, not for the experience of her birth :smiley:

  • @lablover78 he is absolutely adorable. Love that dimple and I’m so glad your induction turned c-section went smoothly. Sending good vibes for easy healing and time with your little man. 

    @hottietoddy I’ve been thinking of you. So sorry to hear you had to be rehospitalized. So scary I hope you are ok now and the meds will help equalize everything out soon. These hormones are a roller coaster and I can totally see how they can exacerbate just about anything. I second the whole pumping stinks thing.  I’m on the pumping bandwagon for now and supplementing with formula due to low supply.  I feel like I’m missing out on so much bonding time, I don’t think it could be a long term solution for us but want to be a good sport until next Wednesday. We are going to see an ENT specialist for a lip and possible toungue tie.
