    Re: I feel sick...

    I'll take it! I'd much prefer it to be related to my period than anything else. At least I'll know when its coming! Anyways, I took a pregnancy test again just to be sure it wasn't spotting from...

    Re: I feel sick...

    As it turns out, I woke up this morning to light spotting. I haven't gotten period since delivering, I'm assuming this is my period. Could this symptoms all have been due to my period coming?

    EP to EBF at 17 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, I have to brag, I'm just so proud :)

    Re: Oversupply and health concerns

    That sounds good. I'm not worried per se, more just curious. I actually just signed up with milkshare.com. It seems like a good place to start?

    EPing and overfeeding

    At 3 weeks old my LO (who was 5 weeks early) was guzzling down 4 oz of BM every 3 hours. He would then fuss and moan for 30 mins and end up puking a lot of it up. My pedi was thrilled he was eating...
