BFing was painful like that with both my girls also for about 2 to 3 weeks and then it slowly started getting easier. It was the worst with dd2 tho and I thought I was going to die! I've never actually had cracks or bleeding but it hurt SO bad every time she latched on!! I just squeezed a pillow, let her latch on and cried (I think I even screamed once! Lol but it scared her so I tried to keep quiet but ouch!). And I used half a tube of lanolin the first week and half! I think it's just how it is while my nipples get used to BFing again. But if I was having cracking and bleeding I would probably try the shield...or whatever else that might help!

Stacie I hope it starts getting easier for you and your little guy!

Maria, sounds like it will be soon for you!! GL!

Re: Winter wonder 1/12

bloody show is a good sign that something is happening! .... candice i hope things speed up for you

i was wondering, can your cervix thin out and dialate even its still high up there? i still can't reach mine, and i'm wondering if ANYTHING could be going on with it. i wish i'd never started checking- ugh!!

I would think so, I know I'm 1cm and I can't reach my cervix. No idea how thinned out I am though.

Anxious over here too. I can barely feel mine either, there is a head there. I could still feel it when I was 3-4 the other day when midwife checked me. So I'm guessing I'm more than that now. Plus she said head was at zero then and it's way lower now. So I just need a few strong contractions or my water to break... But neither of those things wants to happen :-( I considered trying to strip my own membranes but idk what I'm doing so I don't feel safe or comfortable with that. It's just a fleeting thought of desperation lol!

Re: Winter wonder 1/12

i'm only 38 weeks, but i'd had my other two babies by now, so it feels like i'm over due. i'm sick at the thought i could go another 2 or 3 weeks!

Went in for my OB visit and ended up having Olivia about 5 hours ago! Surprise!

Even better? She was born on DS' birthday... so much for Chuckie Cheese...

My phone thinks it is smarter than me.
