13 Jan

I finally did it. As promised.

I’m not sure I like the look of things yet. We’ll see.

And I decided to keep Empty Uterus. It’s empty now. It probably will be from now on. It says a lot about who I am, why I am the way I am, etc.

The header is just something I came up with goofy around in paint (as if you couldn’t tell!). But it’ll do for now.

I deleted the blogs on my blogroll that hadn’t posted in a very long time, and I started going through and adding some new ones but I’ve run out of time. If you would like to be added to my blogroll please just leave me a comment letting me know and it will be done.

And I hear all three little ones starting to stir so before I am called away to feed and feed and feed some more tiny humans:

The Boob:

– survey says? Clogged duct.

Soon after posting that the pain started to get worse. It felt like I had been beaten in the boob with a brick. Mmm, not so pleasant. I went to bed that night  w/ a heating pad and fed Nolan on that side first all evening. By morning it was a bit better and by today I am almost back to normal. Wow. That felt NOTHING like I would have expected, sure glad it’s gone! Strange that I never felt the “hard spot” that everyone describes with a clogged duct…but it was so tender (and my girls are pretty freakin HUGE right now, so that’s a lot of ground to cover) and honestly I didn’t go prodding around all that much.


– Nolan scared the SH*T out of us. First of all, he went to sleep at about 11pm after eating and didn’t wake up at 8 like he usually does, he slept until a little after 9. I was THRILLED. Until I went to change his diaper. There was a red spot right in the middle of his peed on diaper. Blood! I screamed for hubby to bring me a baggy and the car keys cause we needed to get Nolan to the hospital ASAP.


After running my screaming (in hunger) 2 month old to the pediatrician’s office at top speed…it turns out it was something called Urate Crystals. Um. Yeah.

Apparently when anyone goes a long time without eating (like, overnight) their urine can become more concentrated. To the point of turning dark reddish-orange. (NOTE: He was NOT dehydrated. They checked. )

Scared. The. CRAP. Out. Of. Me.

Oh, and Nolan?

14 lbs 1 oz

10 weeks old.

(In other words, he’s a CHUNK! He’s already in size 6 month!)

Gotta run. Time to produce some boob milk and some chicken nuggets for the screaming masses.

    I like the new look and am glad you kept the name. Sounds pretty scary with Nolan, glad it turned out to be something minor.

    I like the new look too.
    When I worked NICU we used to have that happen with diapers sort of frequently even though we were waking them up every 3-4 hours. They called it brick dust. It was definitely freaky though the first time you saw it.
    Glad the boob is feeling better.

    Yay for Nolan being such a chunk! Charlie is one, too – I love the chubbiness!

    Glad your boob is better!

    Ugh, clogged ducts are the WORST! Even worse than that is mastitis. I’m so glad you got it resolved so quickly. Those things mean business.

    Too funny about the red dot. At least you know for future reference now.

    Give the kids big hugs!

    Quick bullett point commen LOL!t:
    How do you know who was who in your u/s photo?
    Nolan is only 4 or 5 pounds smaller than my tiny Nathan who is nearly 11 months!
    Glad the heating pad worked. Clogged ducts are no fun.

      Good question! I know who is who because Lennon had low amniotic fluid, so her sack is always small and she looks “cramped”, so I can tell her and Evy apart. And I know the one in the middle is the one we lost.

    Glad you are feeling better! And I am glad you are keeping the blog name – I think it fits still 🙂

    If you want, you can add me to your bloglist if I am not already on it.

    Also, can I have your password to see your picture posts? 🙂

    I’m still around, though I’m not blogging as much as usual. Am finding pregnancy (preparing for two, no less) incredibly time-consuming and exhausting.

    I think about you and your babies a lot, now that I’m on my way to the same place.
