maybe trying playing with a rattle so he will learn to turn his head and move the muscles around? idk im sorry hon

its okay. when he’s awake it doesn’t lean as bad because he holds it up consciously… it’s just when he’s asleep the stronger side takes over and he tilts his head horribly, like this:

Just seems like a LOT of blood to be losing. I’d be hesitant to keep using it TBH. :-/ I hope things get better.

thanks so much. from what i’ve heard it can be like this for the first two or three months and then things even back out. as the day goes on it seems to be getting a bit better, so we’ll see what happens. if it gets bad again tonight i’ll go to the er or urgent care, though.

maybe go to urgent care or even the ER…

they finally called me back and apparently it’s a side effect of the mirena- if it’s still going on tomorrow they’ll fit me right in.

Have you sat down with Brandon and laid the cards on the table? You *NEED* help, your health is suffering, and He needs to step up. Stop dicking around and be a fucking father. As for the snoring, have you had him try the breathing strips?

yep, we talked last night. he took the night shift (which really means waking up at 8 to feed him, put him back to sleep, and come back to bed) and fed him his 2pm feeding. he’s been playing less skyrim. i didn’t tell him he can’t play, i just asked him to play less and spend more time with us, and its working so far. fingers crossed.

ya know,..as awful as that is, at this point i would say that’s about all you can do. Which in that case, you may as well nurse in there. WHAT IF you hung a curtain around the bed or area you nurse so people couldn’t see you?

hmmm, i could try that! i never even thought about that. i think i’ll try.

Make the call yourself. Just do it. Do it and tell them “so n so is gonna reroute the cable wire on this day at this time.” in the mean time i would try and pump or else you WILL lose supply.

ugh yeah i’m going to start locking myself in the bathroom to pump or something.

..so move it upstairs? set up a time sheet when they can come down when you won’t be nursing? tell them to fuck off, you’re baby needs to eat. send me a plane ticket and i’ll do it!

haha yeah someone is supposed to be coming to re-route the cabling so they can move the computer but they keep putting it off. i’d do it myself if i knew how to rewire it. uuuugh, i’m just nervous my supply will be gone by the time it ever gets done. i’ve tried asking politely and not-so-politely and both methods have caused some kind of problem. UGH. ticket’s in the mail bby.

Is Brandon on your side? Has he tried talking to whomever you live with? Have you had a sit down, the both of you, and said listen THIS IS HOW IT IS? I have no suggestions except to be strong and hold your ground.

we’ve tried everything and constantly get the response “well we weren’t ready for you to move back yet so there’s nothing we can do if our computer is downstairs.” since we have the basement apartment and their computer is still down there we have no privacy :/

how terrifying. chloe was cried so hard she couldn’t catch her breath, started turning scary colours, and michael had to turn her over and thwack back like you’re suppose to do. shit was fucking terrifying.

thats exactly what i was about to do but he threw up everywhere right before! it was the scariest shit that ever happened to me.
