Looking for friends.

Hello fellow Mommas!
I'm not sure if this is the right place but i wanted to give it a try.
I'm trying to look for friends on LJ, but every time I stomp in one of those add me communities I just don't have much in common with people in there or they are part of child-free mindset.
I'm looking for friends who can relate to my day to day dealing with a 1 year old, my jo  and just all the things that come with motherhood.
So if any of you is interested, just add me ok ;)

5 months!!

Liliana was 5 months yesterday...I feel like she is growing up so fast! She is rolling over, about to pop a tooth, talking (ok it's more like noise) up a storm, and has just started cereal. She really is such a blessing! Sometimes, I still can't believe that she's here

3 months

So Liliana is amazing! Last time we weighed her at home she was about 12 and 1/2lbs and about 22 inches. She is always smiling and talking=) Just the other day, she started to kind of roll over. During tummy time, she can almost roll over to her back. Teething had also begun. It actually hasn't been too bad though. She's never cranky...just always drooling and trying to suck on her hand all day long. Going back to work was rough, but it has gotten much easier! Still buying a powerball ticket in hopes of hitting the jackpot so I can stay home with her=)

Any updates?

Hey mamas! It's been pretty quiet and was wondering how you and all your little ones are doing.

Liliana is growing so fast! Despite coming 6 weeks early, she has more than doubled her weight and has hit every milestone so far! She is 11 weeks today. Current weight is 11lbs 10 oz and 20 and 1/2 inches. In the past month, she has become very vocal...girl loves to talk! She also is smiling ALL the time=) We are having a little issue with acid reflux...so we have recently attempted switching formulas. Seems to be doing the trick so far. Other than that, things are great. I do have to start working again next week and I'm really not looking forward to it. Even though it is my mother who will be watching her, I just can't stand the idea of being away from her for about 12 hours a day!

And just because she is so cute...


Meet Jacob Tyler...

I went to the hospital last Tuesday night, thinking they would just send me back home, but i got admitted. I had him Wednesday morning at 7:17am. He was 9lbs 14oz 21inches. Have to say he was the easiest pushing wise child I had, it was seriously like 7 pushes and he was out. They werent that hard of pushes either, half way thru my husband was all, "want to instagram a selfie pic now?" everyone started laughing MID PUSH, ugh, still funny though! He had bilirubin (the blue lights in the 2nd picture) I had an epidural, 5 hours later, got a spinal tap & tubes tied.. now my body hurts like hell, haha

Anyways, here's pictures

10 days!

I'm still here, and so is baby K. She's due to arrive via scheduled c-section on the 18th. There are no signs of her coming early, and that's a good thing because grandma isn't arriving until the 17th. I really need her here to watch after my 5 and 2 year olds.

I'm pretty miserable, and sleep is basically a futile effort. Having babies is definitely for the young :)

How's everyone else doing?


So tomorrow was my due date yet here's my little one at 5 weeks:

She's getting so big so fast! We have an appointment on weds for a weight check...I'm thinking we are going to be over 8 lbs=) That'll be almost 3 lbs gained in a month and a half. She sleeps pretty well...I usually get 4 and a half hours between feedings at night. She's definitely a mommas girl=) which I love!!! Oh and she finally started to really focus on things now. I love watching her look at me and know that she can finally see me a little=)

Anyway, here are a few pictures just because she's cute!

May already...

I haven't had a look at this community for ages, but I'm still pregnant even though my doctor doubt I will go all of May before giving birth. My blood pressure is constantly high, but so far no protein in the urine, so I'm hoping to prove her wrong and not get pre-eclampsia until June.

I've been to my sixth? seventh? ultrasound today (seriously can't keep track of them). Baby is measuring a bit small, but not too small it seems, and the placenta is still working alright. Going to see my doctor tomorrow morning, and then my midwife a couple of hours later.

I'm feeling sooo fat and clumsy, but the truth is that I haven't been this slim all my adult life (I've certainly been more fit, but it's hard not to lose muscles when ordered to stay still as much as possible by one's doctor) and I hope I will not gain a lot of weight during the breastfeeding period, as I did with my first child. (There was no end to my hunger and i ate, and ate, and ate...)

A pic of my 32 weeks + 3 days belly can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/darnia/8686250727/

can't sleep

It's 6:30 and I'm already awake for an 1 1/2 hours... It's kind of funny actually. Just a couple of days ago I told my husband how glad I am for still being able to sleep through. I probably shouldn't have opened my big mouth. Feels like I jinxed myself.

Are you having any issues too? What do you do to pass the time? I don't want to wake my husband so I moved to the living room and turned on the TV. Nothing good is on thogh :-/

By the way... it's not like i can't sleep because of any bladder issues... and I'm tired, but yeah. Driving me crazy.
