Hi! I made a quick announcement on 3rd tri board 3 weeks ago, but wasn't able to post pictures due to issue with app. These last 3 weeks have been such a rollercoaster of emotion. Ended up with a c section after 20 hours of non-progrossing labor. Contractions were strong, but cervix would NOT cooperate... didn't get passed 1cm! So we decided that c section was the best option at that point. Was the scariest thing I've ever done, but was also beautiful in a way that I never imagined. Word of advice... make a birth plan, but be open to the idea of nothing happening the way you imagined. My 11 step birth plan went completely out the window, but my baby boy is here and healthy!
Had some feeding issues these past few weeks. Lawson has a severe tongue tie that inhibits him from latching properly. He would be on my breast, but his sucking was ineffective. I didn't know until he started screaming at me all day. Ladies - it is NOT normal to be nursing around the clock, no matter what the internet says. I almost caused our little guy to be hospitalized for weight loss bc I refused to give up on the idea of breast feeding. Don't do that to yourself or your baby! Once we moved to expressed milk + formula, he's been a completely different baby!! Such a happy little guy. So yeah, I've had my hands full these past weeks. But we are now in a great routine and loving life!! Couldn't imagine life without my little bug!
