Mother/Daughter Bonding

Since I have been pregnant my mom and I have become a lot closer than we used to be. We have really bonded and we spend a whit ton of time together, but an experience we had a few days ago really takes the cake.

So my lovely son decided that he didn't want to feed off both sides and my left breast was really engorged. So I though I would try and pump with a hand pump that I got. Well I guess I never really looked at it. It is like a bicycle pump with a hose that attaches to the cup part. Well I needed to hold the cup on but I still had to have 2 hands to work the pump. I had to have my mom help me out. So here we are sitting on the couch laughing hysterically while I tried to pump. My mom has seen way too much of me lately, but I guess it's good that we are so comfortable.

In other news, I'm already wearing my prepregnant jeans. All of my clothes still fit and I think I may have even lost some of the fat that I previously had on my belly. I weigh as much as I did when I lost weight in the first trimester. So the 30lbs I ended up gaining are all gone. Overall I think I had a really amaziing pregnancy and birth. I couldn't have asked for a better experiance.

I also have a wonderful baby. He sleeps well, only cries when he really needs something, and he eats well. He already has some neck and head control and is really strong.

Well I'm done bragging now.
