hillarykozuch Mousy and I had our 6 week checkup today! She weighs 8lbs 10oz. While she's not gaining much, she is over her birth weight, which is good. The midwife said her tone, color, and alertness is great, which assures her that Mousy's not underfed. However, I'm dealing with a milk imbalance, which means Mousy's getting too much foremilk and not enough fatty hindmilk. This prevents her from getting fulfilled with each feeding, getting sleepy, and better weight gain. I've been recommended to see a lactation consultant. Mousy also still refuses a bottle. Such a titty baby 7d

hillarykozuch Cue Beyoncé's "I woke up like this." But really, I did. She's the cutest thing to wake up next to. Bring on the onslaught of people criticizing my parenting choices. 1w
  •   thepainteddesert Co sleeping and bed sharing is wonderful! That coupled with breastfeeding actually reduces the risk of SIDS. You have wonderful natural maternal instincts. 6d
  •   hillarykozuch @thepainteddesert thank you! And I've read that! 6d
  •   gabi_tx Bla bla bla there's no one way to be a great parent. Do your thing. You know what's best for your baby. 3d
  •   hillarykozuch @gabi_tx I agree and think that's a healthy outlook. 3d
  •   polishamor I love Co-sleeping 3h
  •   hillarykozuch @polishamor we couldn't survive without it 1h
  •   mypolishedtips13 I was so against co sleeping when my daughter was first born we did everything to prevent it but in the end it was the only way to get her to go to bed; she loves snuggling in between us and now at almost 2 she stills crawls in the bed with us but honestly I'm so used to it it feels weird not to have a little foot in my back at night 55min
  •   polishamor We did it for a long time then moved her to her crib once she was fully sleeping thru the night. Some days she still wakes up I just take her to bed with us. And every morning you ... baby snuggles are the best 45min

hillarykozuch I was tagged by @laurenbucalo to share 10 facts about my pregnancy. I conceived on October 20 (my husband and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary late, since it's on the 1st). We caught our families' reactions on camera when we told them. My mom thought it was a joke I had a great pregnancy! No morning sickness, although I had a TON of pain from my Symphysis Pubis Displacement during my second and early third trimesters. I had a lot of swelling, too. I didn't start showing until about 21 weeks. I never gained a pound until my seventh month, and then I ballooned! I gained a total of 29 pounds, and thankfully, no stretch marks. I read a book to Mousy nearly every single day since she developed hearing. My cat loved story time! I felt my absolute BEST from 35 weeks to delivery. I got my iron levels up, and her head was engaged in my pelvis, so my SPD didn't hurt anymore. I was extremely active (hiked mountains, etc.). We were assured that my baby wouldn't be but just 7 pounds. I spent 99% of my pregnancy totally alone, with the exception of my husband's uncle and wife helping me. (The same is true now. My husband works on the road, and I'm getting nearly no help). I was 9 days overdue, in labor for 45 hours, transferred to a hospital for hypertension and preeclampsia, and threw my birth plan out the window. My labor and delivery was the most traumatic thing I've ever experienced, as it went against everything I planned and stood for. I developed Childbirth-Related PTSD from it, and I'm still trying to cope. Thankfully, breastfeeding is going swimmingly! I tag @karalockwood @kacaa86 @cassondrafaye 2w
  •   monitzel2203och You look so cute I hope you have enjoyed your girl 2w
  •   gabi_tx This was fun to read! I'm gonna tag myself :) 2w
  •   hillarykozuch @gabi_tx thank you! I'm gonna go read yours now! 2w
  •   jenjirooo Your #10 hurts to read. My son was breech so I had a c-section. My incision became infected and for 3 months, it was left open so that my husband could pack it with medicated gauze. I also had PTSD from the 3 month nightmare. That was 5 years ago. Just know that it gets better and you are not alone. Hugs, momma! 2w
  •   hillarykozuch @jenjirooo oh my wow. I can't even handle needles, so I'm very thankful to not have had a c section. I would've stroked with an OPEN HOLE IN MY BELLY FOR THREE MONTHS. I'm so sorry to hear! Thank you for sharing your story with me. I'm so glad you've come along from it. 2w
  •   reinovate I'm so sorry your plan had to go out the window. I couldn't even imagine how fast that probably seemed to happen. But I am sooo glad you and baby are healthy now! 1w
  •   hillarykozuch @reinovate it was a whirlwind of a change! It was so overwhelming. Thanks, girl 1w
