Tara- PT is still painful but I've improved a lot!

Haley- GL today!!! Can't wait to see pictures!

Christine- I'm glad y'all are home and doing good. Throwing a new baby in the mix can mess anybody up but I'm glad the boys are doing pretty good.

Re: July 2013 Board

Sorry. I didn't update you guys sooner. Amelia made her presents at 3:07am on July 14. Needless to say I was very exhausted. We came home today and are just now trying to get used to having a new member in our family. Delivery was so diffrent from my first. When we got to the hospital to start at noon, the hospital had some sort of miscommunication and the nurse that was supposed to start the induction was not there. Why another one of the many other nurses couldn't start it is beyond me, since there were only like 3 of us in a very large hospital delivering. We even had a few nurses come in throughout the process to check on us, and say they had nothing else to do so they wanted to see if they could be of any assistance. Anyways got the induction started at 2ish. Pitocin was slow going and giving me contractions, but the dr didn't feel like they were strong enough to break my water. Even though I kept stressing that's what it took to get my son out. So finally at 10pm the dr decided to have my water broken and as I figured my contractions kicked into high gear and they turned off the pit. I was progressing but unfortunately not as fast as I did with kale. I was getting really tired because I had been there so long. I did have them give me some IV drugs which helped me for like an hour but then contractions again started getting to be to much and progression was only like 5cm. So I got the epi. The epi actually worked, unlike the one I got with Kale. To well actually my arms and chest were numb. I was complete at 1:30a but was so numb my pushes weren't moving her very much, and because I was so numb I couldn't really tell I was pushing or tell how much I was even holding my breath. So about 30 min later the nurse came back in and had me start pushing. She was turned a little so the first 20 min were slow going until she twisted into good position and the epi was wearing off. Dr came in and about another 25 min I finally started to crown. I could really tell she was so much bigger then kale. She weighed in at 8 pounds 5 ounces. 20 1/2 inches long with a 14 1/2 inch head. Nursing has been going pretty well and kale just absolutely loves her. I'm sure I'm forgetting a ton, but will catch up more a little later.

Re: July 2013 Board

Mirena is OUT!  Was so fast, i couldnt believe it was out already! lol. Dr. M said she was sure the IUD was the root of the problem, but also said the ph is different when you breastfeed as well, so the combination could have just not worked with me.. apparently, im that 5% of individuals that cannot tolerate the mirena. We are pretty sure that I O'd right around the time of the last BD with no protection (sunday), so we do have a slight chance of being PG.

 

I have to do "supressive" therapy for a month though for the infections. I had to take one diflucan yesterday, and one monday, as well as teraconozle internally for 3 days as well. Then I have to take one diflucan once a week for 4 weeks! =o She thinks with the iud removed, and the supressive therapy, i should be back to my normal self..for the first time since... gosh..its been awhile! :smileyhappy:  I am excited! 

As for removal (for amanda :smileyhappy: ) I had more cramping after it was removed, than when i had it put in. Almost contractiony feelings a few hrs later as well. I didnt have any spotting or bleeding (some people do) but so far, so good for me. I notice i am "sore" feeling when i bend over where the mirena used to be, but overall, i feel better.

 

I went to go buy condoms yesterday (even though no BDing until tuesday) and was so overwhelmed by all the choices..I ended up leaving and not buying any LOL. What on earth.. who knew there were such a variety?

She did perscribe me lo estrin fe 1mg/10mcg dose. She said its a very low dose, and is new but safe for breastfeeding. I am scared to try it though. I can't find anything online that says it is ok to use it while breastfeeding.. does anyone have any thoughts?
