Angel, I hope Pierce's appointment went well. My doc said it was perfectly OK to wait a couple of weeks to give Sophia's flu shot if I decide to do so. I have learned an important lesson over the years. I always do research about things concerning the kids, for example shots and medications. I can count many occasions where docs have prescribed medicines that were infact dangerous or not right for us. Docs are looking for our best interests but it doesn't hurt to research just to have a better understanding incase we have second thoughts. I have always been a bit weary of certain immunizations, not so much the immunizations but piling to many in one visit. I hope I explained myself correctly. Lol. Give Pierce a hug for me.
Poor Simon with the croup...wicked stuff for anyone to have! FX'd for a speedy recovery xoxo
Jess ~ Thank you, I know what you mean. I limited today's vaccines to Dtap & flu. He was also going to get Prevnar & HIB, but I put those on hold until next month. I just believe our little one's need a chance to properly fight off what's been given without overloading their system. It's tough making these decisions...
Leslie ~ I totally believe in vaccinating, I'm just a bit hesitant now that Pierce is on his own building antibodies (I was nursing him through his 12 month shots, which in my head helped, not sure if in reality it did! Ha!). Oh and the cramping during pregnancy...not fun! I would get sharp pains at my hips, so uncomfortable. I too wish it was an easier/worry free process
Amy ~ I need to catch up in your journal, I'm just relieved its November! Days away from your BFP
Bethany ~ How was L's birthday? Hope you are well!
Laura, so sorry that poor Simon is sick with croup. I hope he feels better soon. Thank you so much for the info on the acid reflux meds! I don't understand why they have been so hesitant to medicate Sophia when Natalie was given Zantac as a baby. Although Natalie was never as big as Sophie, she was still at an average weight so I don't understand why they are have been so hesitant to medicate Sophia. They know Natalie suffered from horrible reflux from age newborn to over 2 so I don't understand why they won't take me serious about Sophia. Oh and thanks for the info on the multi vitamins helping to increase their appetite. I never realized this!! I am so glad to see that Simon has a good appetite when his reflux is under control. I hope he gets better soon. Poor boy. Give him a big hug for me.
Laura I hope Simon feels better... yikes about croup! Poor bubs! Sending LOTS of healing vibes your way! How are you feeling?
Angel, How did P's appointment go?
Jess, glad that the dr said it was ok for you to wait in Sophia's flu shot but am so sorry that they are not taking you seriously regarding her acid reflux. I dont get why they are doing that.
Leslie, Im hoping that the ladies here are bring you peace with letting you know that they had cramping. Im sorry I didnt get far enough along in my pregnancies to really help you with that. Hope youre doing ok!
