I got the Medela Pump in Style and it's nice. I never used any other though so I don't really have a point of comparison!!! But I got it free thru my insurance so I'm not complaining Also, it does use a power cord / not sure if there is a battery option.

Thx for the Raynauds info pilot!!!! xx

I'm tired. This parenting stuff is hard...my boobs hurt, I keep eating so much crap cause I'm tired and cause there's really not much time to cook! My whole days are spent feeding, changing, soothing and entertaining this little critter and it's exhausting! I'd kill for a day to myself...I'd cut my nails cause they're overgrown and watch some tv and SLEEP Ahhh those were the days!

How's everyone doing? Got quiet around here...

Ah MrsC I've heard lots of women say exactly what you're saying but also that once you get to 6 weeks the fog starts to lift & it gets easier. My antenatal teacher also said that the first 6 weeks are the worst. Haydn is just gorgeous!

I saw an osteopath yesterday as I've been getting pelvic pain & shooting nerve pain in my legs. Really painful. Anyway, she said my pelvis tilts one way, my spine tilts the other & no wonder I'm in pain. She pulled & clicked me straight again & also had a got at getting munchkin to turn but apparantly he's stubborn! Last night I did feel some kicks in my ribs so he's not decided which way up he wants to be yet & keeps turning. As long as he chooses head down for delivery I dont mind! Otherwise it'll be a section for me

I have a sore throat this morning, think I have a cold coming.

Off to midwife soon, get to hear baby's heartbeat again :-)

xx

Mrs C I totally understand how you feel. I keep trying to take time to have a bath but no chance!

Poppy is 3 weeks old today, we registered her birth yesterday. It was also our wedding anniversary so a very special day.

Today we had Poppy weighed and she has put on 11 ozs in a week!

- Word
I haven´t cleaned our apartment thoroughly since I was 8 months pregnant. No energy at all...



poppy - I Hope your pelvic pain gets better soon. It´s been 8 weeks since I gave birth, and I have a specialty massage in the morning, as I´m still in pain...
Fingers crossed you don´t get a cold, and enjoy the appointment tomorrow


sportysgirl - wow, 11 ounces! Amazing

Clarkeyness - wow, I almost wish I could have decided on LO´s birthday now. But I had my heart totally set on a home birth...
Wow, one week till you hold your LO, enjoy the remaining week of pregnancy, and then enjoy holding LO even more

Poppy good luck with LO turning. Fingers crossed for you.

MrsChezek and Sporty - hang in there. I've also heard that it eventually gets easier around 6weeks and then a lot better by 3 months. I really hope thats true because I know I'm going to be a wreck - DH has been warned. Thanks for the pump info MrsChezek.

Clarkey - You're almost there! so exciting.

AFM - Everyone says get as much sleep as possible now while I can, but thats easier said then done. I'm not even sure how I made it though work today.

On a happier note my baby shower is this weekend and I'm more excited then I expected to be. We don't need much stuff but I already know that so many people insisted on helping my official hostess (who is being amazing herself) and it just makes me feel sooo loved and supported. It makes motherhood just a little less scary.

Munchkin has turned!! He's also beginning to engage...such a good baby! In turn though I have been freaking out now I know I've got to get him out. The huge reality has really hit me today & I'm properly scared of the pain. My midwife wants to do a sweep at 39+2 if nothing has happened by then as long as my obstetrician is happy for her to do it. When I go for a check up next Tues at the hospital I have to ask.

Any advice to stop this melt down? I want to enjoy the last few weeks not spend them in an anxious state!!

ZeeZ - have fun at your baby shower

poppy13 - good little baby
If you´re scared of the pain, have you looked at all your options? Epidural feels nice, even if it didn´t work properly in my case...
Just take one day at a time, and try to enjoy it to the fullest. Happy times are impending
