Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!
And sounds like your bf-ing is going well. You are one of those super-producers, huh? When you have some time though, can you explain why you have to pump? Won't that just continue to aid your oversupply? Or will you gradually reduce the amount of time you pump once your supply starts to even out? Just curious.
Congrats again to you - sounds (and looks!) like you are doing an amazing job!

I am pumping because Thea is nursing with a nipple shield, which makes it difficult to completely empty the breast. If I don't pump, I get rock hard, bright red, sore breasts. Per the lactation consultant, I'll be pumping for at least the next week while Thea's latch and sucking gets stronger and then she has a plan to get her off of the shield and to help decrease my supply. Just following orders! :-)

She is a cutie! I love the pictures...how about a family picture? BTW, Lily was bottle fed exclusively, and she is just fine. You are right in saying a happy momma makes a happy baby, so just keep that in mind. Thinking of you!

Nikole--I'm so happy for you, and I love seeing the photos! Thea IS perfect, you're right. How can they be so beautiful so soon after birth? But they are! And she almost appears to be smiling in that one pic at the hospital. :) You are doing an amazing job!--it is hard, isn't it? Before long the intensity of the work will lessen and she'll be giggling and cooing. You'll never regret all the hours you held her.

Nikole, wow its been ages - 2 yrs in fact....I dont know if you'll remember me but a while back when we were both miscarrying & we both had blogs we connected....my blog was babyodyssey.blogspot.com/...well back in Oct '06 after my 6th miscarriage I was so traumatised I stopped writing. I also stopped reading other peoples blogs....somehow it stopped serving me.....its a huge & long & extraordinary story but in Jan earlier this yr I gave birth to our beautiful baby girl. Our 7th pregnancy we carried to term. She's now 14 wks. Tonight I was just talking to one of my best friends on the phone & she encouraged me to revisit my old 'blog friends' as she had kept checking on my familiar blogs & she told me that most of my blog friends had meanwhile also had babies. She also encouraged me to post once more to complete the story so to speak & let everyone know we've been blessed. I felt a surge of energy to do this, i revisited my blog for the first time in almost 2 yrs & reread my last entry - amazing, now to reread the pain, suffering & trauma. I tried to post a new entry & there were new ways of posting & somehow I couldnt do it (i'll get my husband who is far more technical to help me tomorrow night)....meanwhile I thought i'd check in on you & WAS THRILLED, OVERJOYED & MOVED BY YOUR NEWS TOO - WOW...CONGRATULATIONS, SHES BEAUTIFUL - WOW....WHAT CAN I SAY - THANK YOU GOD FOR OUR DAUGHTERS. I'll post an entry soon on my old blog & will try & reconnect with old bloggers too. Well done too by the way for maintaining your blog - amazing. Once again - congratulations, shes beautiful, wow! Love womb in waiting.
