Sorry the story is so late! I was settling in at home w/ our newest addition and then IV wouldn't let me copy and paste my birth story here when I signed in last week. Since it's finally letting me do it, here's the story :)

P&PT for a great weigh-in on Tuesday!

You also might want to try block feeding (feeding on one side for a few hours then switch) to make sure she's getting the fatty hindmilk. Keep up the great work breastfeeding!

Sorry! I forgot to put her actual birthdate, lol. She was born April 29th at 38 weeks even.

Thanks for all the congrats and well wishes! She still isn't up to her birth weight so the pediatrician is making me supplement her feedings. Luckily, I've been able to keep up with what she eats by pumping, but I just want to go back to our blissful breastfeeding days... I am not doing so well mentally with this worry on my shoulders and I could use some P&PTs to get through to her next weigh in which is Tuesday.

Congrats again Katie! Love the birth story (sorry about the tearing and episiotomy though...). And LOVE the name, beautiful and it suits her.

Congrats Katie! She is gorgeous! Have the twins met her yet? (Not sure on her actual birthday)? That is awesome that you had a mostly good birth experience (besides the strong contrax and tearing/episiotomy)!! And I felt the same way after I had James even though I was 40.5 weeks then--I was in total shock and I kept bugging DH to watch the birth video because I didn't really believe I'd just had a baby! Hahah, CONGRATS MOMMA!!
