Update on Krystalin WITH PICS!

So, I finally have pics on the PC to share. My mom got a digital camera on Sunday, and we took some pictures of Krystalin with it. :) I have tons more though on my moms phone and my phone I will also be posting, eventually.

Anyways, she now weighs 4 lbs 4 1/2 oz, and should be home within the next 2 days or so! Also, today, she nursed for the first time! She nurses like a pro! Thanks Rebekah for showing me the clutch hold!! I tried cradle and cross cradle, she hated both holds, but the minute I put her in clutch hold, she latched right on!

I love this little grimace:







Her foot, next to my mom's finger.

AND! Nursing pic! I find it amusing how tiny her head looks next to my huge boob!

Fine. Thank god only 2 more days of pumping! Then I can send the damned thing back to the hospital!

Hahha, good!! Although I wouldn't send it back too fast. You may still need it for overflow and building a good stash while you can. :)

Well, I DID rent it for a month! Paid 50 dollars to rent the damn thign for a month, might as well get some use from it, I suppose! Oversupply is my middle name, didn't you know that? I'm just super happy she's such a good nurser.

Dramaz? Where?

Pssst: I posted another post. :P

Surprise, surprise. It's three years later and you're still living with your mom, even though

I'm getting a job. I'm moving out. How hard is that to understand? I plainly stated in my third edit that I am doing those things."

Right. I can clearly see that. You're a shining example of hypocrisy and also why some people should be required to have a license to have children. You state that you were on antibiotics to prevent an infection, but also that you're against prenatal care. So how does antibiotics to keep your baby alive not qualify as prenatal care? Seems like you like it when medicine supports your opinions, but call it rape when it doesn't.

Also, lol that you blocked me from commenting because I made this point on another of your posts, you filthy hypocrite. You absolutely do not deserve to be a mother in any way, shape or form. Someone should neuter you before you inflict any further harm on those children.

Right, I was applying EVERYWHERE that was hiring, you stupid sow. I have been applying everywhere that's hiring for years. Is it MY fault the economy is shitty? Nope, it's not. And FYI only reason I'm staying with my mom is due to problems I had during pregnancy, I HAVE my own place, idiot. I'm just not living there ATM because the power needs turned on first.

And yes, I am against the standard medical model of prenatal care, when it is unnecessary as in, when it's a NORMAL pregnancy. I was at a HIGH RISK for preterm labor, and actually started having preterm labor at 25 weeks. I wound up in the hospital at least twice a week for terbutaline injections to stop labor. So I had a reason to get prenatal care. Did i like it? No. But it was necessary for my baby's safety. Did I like spending a week and a half on antibiotics and on strict bedrest, not even allowed up to use the bathroom? No, I did not. But, I did it for my baby's safety I have never once stated that I wouldn't do anything to keep my kid safe, I always said I didn't believe in the standard medical model of prenatal care, BUT I did not ever once say that IF NEEDED I wouldn't utilize it. Lots of moms out there are against standard prenatal care, but that doesn't mean that they wouldn't seek it out if it was needed. Just like there's plenty of us out there against hospital birth, but again, that doesn't mean we wouldn't seek it out if it was necessary. My water broke at 32 weeks 5 days, I kind of think that was a REASON to go to the hospital and spend 10 days in L&D.

And, yes, it is rape to pressure moms into things that Are. Not. Necessary. And to FORCE procedures onto a mother. And to tell outright LIES to a mother to get her to do whatever the hell you want them to. So yeah, go on preaching wtfever you think, you don't know crap about me.

And what praytell makes you think I do not deserve to be a mother, or harm my children? My children are loved, are well-fed, are cared for VERY well, and are smart kids. So, really, what on earth makes me an undeserving mother? Because my beliefs are different than mainstream? Puhlease, get a freaking life.
