Thankfully my pediatrician and my midwife are on my side and have now prescribed me a 14 day hard core regimen that should totally knock this out for both of us. I am hoping this works not only to clear up Claire and to help the pain in my breast BUT Ryan and I have our 1st overnight getaway planned! I need to start pumping and freezing but cannot do that until we are in the clear! So excited for this trip to San Olivos and my parents are also so excited to have so much time with little Claire. Who, by the way, is not so little anymore! The midwifes weighed her today and our little chub is now 8 pounds 10 ounces! I am so proud of us, even with thrush she is eating like a champ, even though this does cause her to latch and unlatch a lot so it takes a lot longer and milk is wasted because she fills her mouth then lets go and it spills all over me - but we are doing well!!
You must read this article lol it hits home with the thrush/candida lol
"Ya know, if you wanna get rid of your Candida, you should stop feeding it."
I will start working out with Lora again, she's been my trainer for awhile now and I have been helping her out with her Facebook - Exercise with Lora - so now she is going to help me get toned and back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I am amped! My midwife checked my diastasis and diastasis recti is a fairly common condition of pregnancy and postpartum in which the right and left halves of Rectus Abdominis muscle spread apart at the body's mid line fascia. For some women after their pregnancy the gap is bigger than two fingers which can take a lot of work to close that area. Thankfully, mine is a little less than two fingers so daily I will work on my stomach muscles, walk, and stretch.
Going to start with these:
Look at this adorable pacifier! Meagan got this charm for me to put on my Claire Olive bracelet that she got for me when I announced that I was expecting! It was such a surprise and so thoughtful.
PLUS look at the box! It has an A & Z on it and a C!
love love love it - thank you
