LOLLOLLOL
He has been looking like that the whole time!LOL
He finally smiled for the 1st time this morning after I fed him. This was his 1st taste of actual breast milk. It finally came in this morning at around 5am and my breast are SO heavy and tight!!! The burning sensation is no joke. My midwife says it'll pass once my bod figures out how much he needs. This little dude is voracious and nurses like a champ! My nipples look like raw ground beef. Ouch

My midwife and doula were at my house and took a peek at them. Apparently that is normal. I thought this only happened with an improper latch, but he has been latching correctly the whole time. I thought nipple pain could be avoided so long as the nipple was pushed past the hard palette in the baby's mouth.
Not the case for me at all. Apparently it will take weeks for my nips to callous up, then the pain should subside.

It seems like everything is so hard for womenLOL I am so glad I don't know the future, I would have completely avoided parenthood had I known  all this ahead of timeLOL I couldn't imagine my life without this little boyCryHeart It seems like my love increases EVERYDAY!!!!  I would do anything for him.

LOL It wears off later...believe me it does for many of us. Breast feeding does hurt at first but after a few weeks it gets better. If you find yourself having problems ask for help. Warm showers help ease things. He is such a cutie! Big smile

I just don't think it ever willLOLCry
The labor was such a wonderful experience, up until that last hour and a half. If it weren't for the ring of fire, I would have 2 more without hesitation! I just was not physically or spiritually prepared for this!

even after reading your post, wifey, i'm still going to try the natural route...i'm just going to make sure that epidural is close, lol.

did you feel very comfortable in the water? were you in a hospital or birth center?



Please do! I don't regret that at all. Drugs would not have made a difference. Labor is something that you can't escape, that baby has to come out one way or anotherLOL
It is INTENSE, drugs or no drugs. I was pretty comfy in water, but I labored more in my bathroom with the toilet lid down. There was no difference during a contraction as far as the pain. No position or location lessened their intensity. The water was just great for relaxing and recuperating in BETWEEN contractions. By the time I started pushing, it was SO hot I had to get OUT of that tub!!! I was sweating and grunting like a wild beast by thenLOL

LOL at the side eye.    LOLLOLLOLLOL

His eyes look light...are they?



They look....different in a cool way I guess. I am used to brown eyes. His look steel grey.
I know they won't set into their permanent color for a few more months, 6 I think.
But the general consensus is gray according to both sides of the family.
I am not settling on anything yet, because I know it is not the final color.

That is the sensation a woman feels when the babies' head is crowning.
That is too civil a way to describe it if you ask meAngry
Like I said, it felt like acid was thrown on my vagina!
That was the single most terrifying moment of my life. ..and my body kept forcing me to push my way though it--I couldn't control it, like when you vomit! It was involuntary, as though some other force took over my body.....TERRIFYING!!! I can't sugar coat thisSleepy
