Your name: Lisa

Baby name: Connor

Birthdate: April 24, 2012

Baby stats: 17 lbs 5 ounces

Other info: I am a bit behind on getting here this week, I apologize. I had my hernia repair on Thursday and have been recovering since. The recovery isn't as bad as my Csx but te procedure was decidedly worse. They had to do a more involved procedure than they anticipated (doing both a mesh insert and sewing the muscles over top) and as a result ran out of freezing before they were done :smileysad: I was awake and informed them of this so they quickly gave me a local but it wasn't quite the same.

Your name: Karen

Baby name: Maxwell Eugene

Birthdate: May 2

Baby stats: 16lb 8oz and 25"

Other info: Not much to report here.  We've been really busy getting used to school again and getting into a routine with drop-offs, pick-ups, and homework.  We are getting ready for camping at a tractor/threshing show this weekend and I'm starting to feel the pressure :smileyindifferent:  I am also going to start looking for a part time job that I can do opposite DH's job so we can have a little extra money and I can stay home with the kids.  On top of all that, my sister is having some family/kid troubles so she is constantly on my mind and I am hoping that something good will come out of a bad situation.

I am so sorry you had such a bad experience for your repair.  Especially since I had told you not to worry and how much easier it was than I was expecting :smileyembarrassed:  That was my worst fear going into surgery...I couldn't imagine waking up in the middle of it!!

Maxwell has been doing the screaming for a while now too.  Sometimes it is happy screams and sometimes it is not so happy screams.  I can usually tell the difference but DH certainly can't.  It's kind of funny to see him talking all happy/playful with Max when I know he is not doing his happy screams :smileywink:

Your name: Becky

Baby name: Emma

Birthdate: may 8, 2012

Baby stats: 12lbs 5oz 23 inches

Other info. Emma had her four month well visit today, turns our she has her first ear infection. I knew something wasn't right with her but wasn't sure what. So now she is on an antibiotic. Poor baby. We also got the green light to start cereal! Emma seems to love it! Hopefully it will help with the spitting up. On a different note my almost 4yr old DD started preschool-saddest thing ever! Makes me realize how fast these precious LOs grow!

Ha ha don't feel bad Karen. The recovery really isn't bad at all just like you said. I am just irritated about not being as mobile as I want to and wanting to cuddle Connor on my chest and I can't. Also bending sucks which is hard when my three oldest leave a trail of clothes and other crap behind :smileytongue: I am hoping week two is better lol!
