I'm Back!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I'm so sorry I have been away for a few months, the wifi at my inlaws was spotty at best. Anyway, I had the baby on 9/28/11 and brought all my own gluten-free food to the hospital- they weren't sure how to feed me so they went to PUBLIX and bought an Amys bowl! I was like "Um, I hope you didn't bill my insurance for that..."

Jacob was 9 pounds, 11 oz... amazing what a healthy diet can do for you AND your kiddos! I can't wait to jump back in now that I am home. The husband is still deployed (and may be extended) soooo... I guess I'll just have to cook to keep busy haha

Thanks so much guys, I missed having all of you to ask questions/share vents on sharing a kitchen (my inlaws fed my kid wheat the whole time we were there! THEN suggested I allow wheat into MY kitchen ... yeah... no.). I could see the board but only on my iphone so it was tiiiny.

So SO happy to be home, and breastfeeding is going well this time. I ran out of milk by 3 weeks with Collin and had lost 24 pounds. This time I am holding steady at 180 and breastfeeding VERY well. SO glad I got diagnosed before I had another baby.

So! What have I missed???

So! What have I missed???

3 people had affairs and one is pregnant & not sure if her husband is the father. The evil doctor was shot & almost died. 4 people came back from the dead. 1 girl was re-cast. Wait......that was the soap opera I watch! :o

On C.com....the usual- constipation, diarhea, bloating, gas, foggy brains, nerve problems, anxiety issues, bread recipes,unsympathetic relatives, "does it contain gluten or not?" discussions, etc.
