Amount of breastmilk I am producing - from less than 1 oz to now over 5 oz

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, In : Motherhood 
When I first started pumping my breast milk, my first 15 min session produced under 1 oz and that's including both breasts! On the 3rd day after I gave birth was when I started pumping to get more milk coming. Now, 15 days later, I am finally producing over 5 oz. What a difference and relief! I'm finally making a surplus for my baby.

 We are no longer supplementing my baby's diet with formula.

Feeling like I was sexual abused by my lactation consultant

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, February 22, 2014, In : Motherhood 
While I was pregnant with my son, I decided that I was going to breastfeed instead of using formula since so many medical professionals highly encouraged it. When my son was born, he latched onto my breasts right away and I felt like we had a good thing going on. On the second day, I got worried because his lips were getting really dry and that made me think I was not producing enough liquids from my breasts. We decided to see a lactation consultant the next day.

I'm not sure if it's because o...

Dealing with Post Partum after Childbirth

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, February 20, 2014, In : pregnancy 
It's been 13 days since I gave birth to my beautiful son and I'm dealing with postpartum. I've been crying a lot and we've had a lot of visitors and their dogs come stay at our house to meet the baby. We've also recently did a 2.5 hour road trip each way for 2 days so other family members can meet the baby as well. All of this on top of healing physically and emotionally has been hard. The baby is not even 2 weeks old yet.

Am I being too nice to let so many visitors come and see our baby, dis...

Took me 6 days after Child Birth to Poop

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, February 13, 2014, In : pregnancy 
The day finally came! I pooped! I gave birth 6 days ago and did not poop until today. The days up until this date has been brutal. I've been eating normally as well so I have no idea where all of that food is stored in my body. With the stitches down there and my nipples hurting from breastfeeding, this third problem made the last several days really uncomfortable.

So for those who has never given birth before, consider this a warning that you may not be able to poop for awhile! Fortunately, ...

Weak in the knees when there is a contraction (39 weeks)

Posted by SailorGirlfriend.com on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, In : pregnancy 
This morning I claimed to have suffered from Braxton Hicks for the first time in my blog this morning and now it's 3:57pm and it has come back. I wonder if this is all real labor and that I'm just at the very beginning stages? I am already 39 weeks today so it is possible right?

As I was walking around the house, I did feel like my right leg would get weak all of a sudden like a sudden shot through my leg went up my spine and I had to stop for a second a few times. Is this caused by my contrac...

Braxton Hicks "False Labor" at 39 weeks is painful

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, In : pregnancy 
I am exactly 39 weeks today and I suffered from Braxton Hicks for the first time this morning at around 1am. I really thought I was going into early labor because I had a hard time getting up and my abdominal area was hurting so bad. I went to the bathroom and noticed some watery discharge so I thought that my amniotic fluid is slowly leaking out. I noticed some mucous plug yesterday and the day before as well so that is why I thought it was my amniotic fluid today.

Anyway, I had a doctor's ap...

Very exhausted at 38 weeks pregnant and mucous plug started showing

Posted by SailorGirlfriend.com on Monday, February 3, 2014, In : pregnancy 
I'm 38 weeks and 5 days pregnant today and my mucous plug started showing this morning when I went to the bathroom. At first, I was really excited and frantically went to find my baby book to see what this meant. It said that it's a sign that I am going into labor soon. That could be tomorrow or 2 weeks later. I texted my husband while he was at work right away just in case something happens sooner than later so he can be prepared to tell his work.

Since Valentine's Day is also next week, I f...
