Time could really flies so fast. I could not believed that tomorrow we have our little guy for a month already. He is developing so well. He is a big eater. His pediatrician told me to give him 2 ounces per feeding but it is not enough. I give him 3 ounces and sometimes 4 ounces to satisfy his hungry little tummy. Each day he is getting bigger, heavier and more active. He is a funny, smart precious little baby. He would suck up his pacifier for seconds and spit it out realizing that there is no milk coming out!
I feel so lucky for surviving the first month of being a mommy to a new born again. Everything was new again. I was glad that my adjustment period did not take that long. GOD is good and he guided me all the way. My situation now is tougher than before having the toddler and the new born baby but we are getting through each day and thankful for having my family and my kids.
Want to be germ free? Use hand sanitizer. Got mine from the hospital when I gave birth to our little guy lasts month.
I had my Doctor’s appointment yesterday and I was worried as my Doctor was talking about inducing my labor if something would not happen next week. I have one more appointment left which will be sometime next week. I was very naive when I had my first baby. I had no idea that I had gone through induction labor. My water bag was broke but never had any contraction. My Doctor gave me two different type of pills. The second pill was the one that really works and trigger my contraction. I learned that from my Doctor yesterday as I asked her about the induction labor.
Here are some medical reasons for inducing labor:
- When a complication develops such as: hypertension, preeclampsia, heart disease, gestational diabetes, or bleeding during pregnancy.
- If the baby is in danger of not getting enough nutrients and oxygen from the placenta.
- Your amniotic sac has ruptured but labor hasn’t started within 24-48 hours.
- Your pregnancy is prolonged beyond 42 weeks; there is evidence that some babies are at risk after this stage due to a gradual decrease in the supply of nutrients from the placenta.
- There is an infection inside the uterus known aschorioamnionitis.
