And I'm surviving! LolaBean is a beautiful baby! I never dreamed I would be here, talking about MY daughter, but here we are! What a miracle DE is! Now onto the nitty gritty... Lola has taken to not sleeping at night. It seems she has a really hard time (painful) pooping. I know yuck right? But that's what is going on at my house. She screams and cries and can't sleep until she goes!?!? And it's not like she doesn't poop 5x a day, she does! And they are healthy #2's? So I don't really know what the problem is. We also have trouble with her burping, but we are determined and will burp her in 5 different positions for up to 45 minutes as we know what happens if she doesn't burp! Screaming! Right now we are averaging 1 goodnight followed by 3 bad ones. But we'll get there.
The breast feeding isn't going fantastic either, but she loves it so I'm going to keep trying and praying my milk supply picks up! So far I've lost 24 pounds. I still have 11 to go to get to pre-pregnancy weight but I'm aiming to lose at least 25 more. I'm nervous though to start working out. I don't want to do anything that might reduce my milk supply even more, so I'm holding off.
Sorry this post has taken me 2 days to finish! In the last 48 hours I've gotten approximately 6 hours of sleep. I'm wiped out. But I'm trying to handle all the night fussiness myself as JD has to work. OyyyVayyy! I'm really praying that tonight he takes pity on me and pulls night duty, but I won't hold my breath!
I'll post again on Monday with her 1 month photo. Much love to you all!
