32 WEEKS….8 MONTHS….We are getting closer to August 24th!!!!
I haven’t had too many changes this week besides I am dreaming more and more about her and what she is going to be like. It makes me really excited to go to bed.
I had a doctor’s appointment this week and everything looks great. Instead of going to the docs once a month now I will be going every 2 weeks. Running has been feeling really good and making me think that I will be able to run for at least a few more weeks if not the entire pregnancy. I get slower each week but that is okay with me as long as I still get to do it.
Onto the topic of this post:
I feel like I am pretty good with kids. I now have a total of 15 nieces and nephews that I am with a lot and have learned a lot through watching their parents raise them. I babysat throughout my teenage years and was a nanny in college. I know how to change diapers, how to spoil them rotten and how to make them laugh so I am not too nervous about that kind of stuff.
There is something that I am really nervous about:
I know that I don’t have to breastfeed and if it doesn’t exactly work out then it is totally okay to use formula but I am just nervous about figuring out the whole thing. I have heard so many stories about it hurting, taking a long time to get a hang of, Mastitis, not having enough supply etc. that I get really worried about it. Please tell me that this scared other people too!
I feel like this section of the blog has turned into more of a forum where I beg for help from you guys but I kind of like it like that. So, let’s get discussing mkay?
Did breastfeeding come natural to you? What advice do you have for me? Any good books/websites that you recommend I read? Did running/working out effect your supply?
