My Parenting Blog- Curiously-kiki.tumblr.com

Since I’m no longer pregnant, I’ve created a new blog for my adventures through parenting. Please follow my new blog since I no longer post in this blog (and I’m still gaining followers).

Thanks for all of your support through my 9 month journey. I hope to see you all on the other side!

My boobs do not agree with engorgement..

They’re too huge, hard, hot, and heavy! It’s as if they’re meant for a porn star, they’re not meant for me. Seriously, I’d bet they’re about a double F. Unreal.

Breastfeeding is a bit hard for me too since I’ve had surgery in my right breast. The scar tissue from my incision is too thick and blocks a lot of ducts, making my nipple flat. They recommended I use the pump to start that one off, but even then it’s not enough for my little girl.

It makes me sad and upset. It makes it worse when she’s screaming about it too. I get too flustered and discouraged. Feeding too much on my left is making that one more big than the other, and I don’t want that. It’s a game messing with my mind.

I don’t want to give up though.

I can’t seem to remember the password to the other account, and tumblr isn’t emailing me instructions to reset it. Something isn’t right, so I suppose I’ll postpone moving the blog to there until I can figure it out.

*sigh* must have been the pregnancy brain. I wish I wrote it down..

So sorry! False alarm! Keep up here until I make the switch. =]

Lagger..

Sorry for the lack of updates. Trying to learn everything about Keala, as well as catching up on much needed sleep.

I’m moving on over to a new blog-

If you want to continue on with her story, please follow me there. =]

I’m in the process of creating a new post now about her first couple days of life.

Daddies girl. Born oct 3rd, 5:29 pm. 7lbs 3oz 18inches long.

Took forever but it was worth it! She’s so beautiful. She has a hard time latching but I haven’t met with the lactation consultant yet. Shes such a heavy sleeper too.
My vagina hurts! Owww. And I can barely walk. I got stitches and internal tears cause she came out with her elbow over her head. And to top it off I have horrendous hemmorhoids. Poor brennen has to care for us both. 
In debating whether or not to go home tomorrow or wednesday.
I should try to sleep.

Pretty much at a 10 and they broke my waters at 9 1/2. Theyre gonna make me push soon. Waiting for the pressure drop.

To think I might be pushing the same time stasia did but on the west coast!

Our babies are like due date twins from the start!

congrats stasia hes so handsome!

Comments

8 centimeters!

Water still hasn’t broke. Got the epidural and trying to rest after a night of no sleep. Things are progressing rather quickly. Where does the time go?

Comments

Last time I was checked I was at a 6. Not too much longer til I meet keala!

Went to the hospital and got hooked up. Contractions stayed consistent, but my midwife said I only progressed to 2cm and 80% effaced. She gave me some sleep-aid and sent me home. She said chances are I will see her either by 8am today or by her next shift at 8pm. She expects things to get more intense by the time I wake up and that I’ll be coming in again within 24 hours since my cervix is “favorable” and things have been moving pretty fast since I lost my show.

Fuck this sucks and hurts like a bitch.

Okay she was right, I don’t think I would be able to talk through these..

Every go I start grabbing the edges of my bed with tight fists taking as long of breaths as I can. I thought I had a high pain tolerance, I guess I thought wrong. These are making me turn to a wuss.

The past couple were only about 4 and a half minutes long. Keep it up so I can hurry and go to the hospital.

Still debating on when to wake up Brennen..

Comments

Steady 6 min apart, almost a min long each, increase in pain.

Please let this be the night…
