    Still nursing even though I'm not sure how much milk she's getting...if any.. sometimes I feel the stinging sensation of let down...but I still can't get any milk out myself. Oh well.
    Not getting nauseated from the pregnancy as often so I'm hoping that will end soon! 18 weeks along!!
    DDs bday is in a couple of weeks and I'm planning her party. Paint splatter party! Huge mess but lots of fun!

    How are you?

    If you have any questions about massage therapy, breastfeeding, natural birth, Your Baby Can Read, teaching kids sign language or whatever...feel free to ask!

    I bought a book! "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" that is supposedly going to be a great resource for after DD comes and we start feeding. I am a little concerned about my milk supply because I don't seem to be leaking colostrum or anything but trying to stay positive and hopeful.

    I never leaked with my daughter and I actually still have an over supply issue with her. Only 2% of women can't breastfeed and that includes ones on medicine and HIV women. So the odds are in your favor sweetie! Don't stress about your milk at all. When you get home enjoy a bowl of oatmeal every morning and drink and eat plenty and you should be fine

    That's what I hear! I have a close friend that is a LC for La Leche League and another close friend that is a mom of 3 that might as well be a LC and they both said the same thing and both recommended the book.

    Pretty good! Listening to Eye of the Tiger and having snuggles to get ready for the day!

    I really feel like we've gotten breastfeeding down these days It's so encouraging since we struggled so much at first! Now it's so easy and comfortable
