Day 18

We may have some colic. Or perhaps our baby turned into a howler monkey between 6 pm and midnight last night. I also discovered that the combination of laying her on my shoulder while I sob (not so) quietly will put Megan to sleep in about 5 minutes. Either way, she hasn't started up yet tonight, but we are still bracing a repeat performance. Once she calmed down last night though, we had some pretty good stretches of sleep and it was the pain of my overly full breast ready to explode that woke me up at 9 this morning, not my child who was peacefully headed into her fourth consecutive hour of sleep.

Per my husbands orders, I left the house today and got my brows waxed. That always helps me feel like a new woman and today was no different. Post-dinner I took the dog out for a long long walk. That combo makes me feel ready for tonight. Ask me again how I feel at 1:30 and I may have a different answer.

Hang in there. It's got to be tough being a new mama. Hope tonight goes better!

Oh, I remember those days well. Especially the me sobbing part. I have no advice for you, except that This Too Shall Pass.
Hang in there, you guys are doing great. I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to you last night, but it was good to see that Bri is doing well with it all.
