Just wanted to thank you all for your support over my last post :) You sure know how to make a girl feel loved and not alone! I went to the OB's today. Have I told you how much I LOVE my new OB (the woman that delivered Samantha)? She's so nice and spent so much time talking with me. This was actually my 6 week post delivery check up, that I had to cancel awhile back. I talked with her about how I was feeling and she was so supportive. She said " There are so many women out there struggling with this and they haven't been through half the crap you have!" She put me on two meds and wants to see me again in 6 weeks to see how I'm doing. And then at that time she will wean me off one of the meds and keep me on the other. I know it takes some time for them to kick in so I'm not expecting an overnight miracle. But I just feel better knowing that I'm doing something about it! :)
Things are still all screwy with baby girl. The doc wants to try her on Prilosec now. So she is starting that tonight and we are to stop the gripe water. We stopped using the black "witches brew" (as I was calling it) a few days ago. The doctor didn't think it was a good idea and told us just to stick with the Little Tummies Gripe water. But our heads are spinning. Nothing is really working. I feel so bad for her because she's probably wondering what the hell is all this stuff we keep pumping her full of! PLEASE GOD let the prilosec work. If it doesnt after a few weeks, I want her to see a baby GI doctor. The peds doc wants us to come in next week to check her weight and see how she's doing. Her screaming seems to be more in the morning now and early to late evening. The last couple nights she does okay. Cries before she eats, cries after. Takes me close to hour to get her settled and back to sleep and then repeat the whole thing again at next feeding. THIS I can do. Feeding her and working to put her back down is okay. It's just the screaming that's tough. We still have to wake her to eat every three hours. Which is tough because sometimes I will just get her calm and back to sleep and then I have to wake her 45 minutes later! The doctor said we will see how her weight is at the next visit and maybe we can stretch out feeding times to just when she's hungry.
I think I have an obsession with baby jeans. They might be the cutest things ever.
