Congratulations, she is darling!

Sorry you're still dealing with bp and epidural side effects and milk drying up and hubby gone... Ugh! The joys of motherhood :-D. But those sweet baby smiles somehow make it all worth it!

LOL I wish that it would have worked for me! ALTHOUGH, let me just say..I was pumping at the time and probably not as diligent about it as I should have been! Stressful! Hopefully it might work for others!

she's so precious! I'm glad y'all are doing well, overall! I also took Fenugreek for a boost in my milk and it worked wonders (made everything in the house - mostly me - smell like maple syrup, though). I hope your BP settles soon.

What a beautiful little girl! Congrats!!
I saw where you said that your breast milk had dried up and that the dr. didn't recommend the pills that you take due to your high bp. After my little girl was born--I didn't have milk (except a few drops here and there) and they suggested I take fenugreek (I think that's how you spell it) It's an herbal supplement--I'm not sure if that's what your doctor would have been cautious against but I also had high BP after delivery and was told to take it..however, it didn't seem to work for me! But just a thought you might want to discuss with your doc if you had your heart set on breastfeeding!

Thanks guys! Umm my milk just slowly faded the Dr chalked it up to to much stress on my body and there are pills you can take to help bring it back but because of my BP. The OB said its not wise. So maybe with my next child in a few years. If we decide to that's still up in the air. Some days its a yes and others its noooo way. So how are your pregnancies going!!!! I can't wait till you have your babies!!!!
