My Decision

Thank you for all of the wonderful comments and suggestions in my last post! I decided to go ahead and "do it." Hopefully my OB won't find out... hehe :-)

Sorry for the lack of posts, but life around here is nuts. I barely have time to check my email or do anything else, so blog posts get put way down on the priority list. :-(

The twins are doing very well, but I'm terrified for the day when there's no one here for me to call to when both are screaming at once or I need extra help. Yikes! They're both gaining weight well, and the fenugreek that I'm taking seems to be helping my milk supply. My biggest issue is generally with the evening feedings when I've been feeding them almost non-stop all day long. By that point, there's no milk left and my nipples start to itch from being nibbled on so much. On the days when they feed less often during the day, then I don't generally have that problem. I also can't wean them off of the nipple shields. My son has such a strong suck that I can only nurse him for a minute or two before the pain is too much for me. He has trouble with the latch--he gets on fine and then tries to slide down the nipple so he doesn't have as much in his mouth. OUUUUCH! My daughter flat out refuses to suck at all if I'm not wearing the nipple shield. She'll pull off and then start crying. *sigh*

I splurged and bought a Wii Fit the other day. I'm really looking forward to working out with it, becuase this belly bulge has got to go! I'm about 60 lbs over my ideal weight, even though I don't look it. I'm going to put a weight loss ticker on my blog so you guys will keep me honest. :-) And, in case you were wondering, I am 4' 10.5" tall, so 100 lbs IS my ideal weight...
