Welcome to post_mommy!

Sure. There's probably a good handful of communities out there for new moms. But since I became a mom a short time ago, I've decided that even though sometimes you want to throw dirty diapers at advice-givers, when you really have a problem, it's nice to have a plethora of ears to hear it and offer some suggestions (or just tell you they understand)! So find the one that's right for you. Or join them all!
Obviously, my first round of attempting to maintain a LiveJournal community was unsuccessful, but I'd like to try again. I'm riding the New Mommy train all over again; my second son is 2 and a half weeks old. Here's to my 1-hour break during naptime, or the occasional quiet moment when my husband is occupying my older child...I shall attempt to devote at least some of those moments to trying this whole LJ community thing again.


All Good Things Must Come To An End

I guess I should be happy that I got to go an *entire* year without having my period. However, I can't help but be sad that it has returned! I was hoping to stave it off for at least a few more months (breastfeeding tends to keep you from ovulating). Unfortunately, when I went back to work I had to start using some formula because I couldn't keep up with the pumping--there really wasn't a comfortable, sanitary place to pump, and I couldn't relax enough for it to be effective. Besides, pumping ain't easy!

So my milk supply must have dropped low enough that my body decided ovulation was necessary...woe is me! I had almost forgot what cramps were like. On the plus side, however, my "little friend" is waaayy lighter than it used to be...maybe that's because I'm still breastfeeding, though? I don't know.

Now I'm going to go down some ibruprofen and eat a box of chocolates. :p


Welcome, lady_evender! Please feel free to recommend this community to your friends...so far you and me are it. Sad, I know. But welcome, anyway! :)
My son is about the most darling thing I've ever seen. I love just to look at him...to watch him sleep, to see him smile. I still can't believe that he's here, he's REAL! It's the most amazing accomplishment of my life so far. Raising him right will be the next.
Hello--my name is Jennie and I'm a brand new mom- my little boy, James William, is 2 months old and I am 24.

I was a little above "pleasantly plump" already when I got pregnant, and although 30 of the 40 pounds I gained while pregnant came off in the first few weeks, I still have those last nasty 10 pounds to get down to my prepregnancy weight. And then there's the other 40-50 pounds I should have lost before I got pregnant! Right now, I'm still so tired and stressed from dealing with this new little life I'm responsible for that all that weight seems pretty daunting! Luckily it's the time of year when all of the gyms have their New Year's resolution specials, I guess! I'm one of those people who has resolved to lost weight in the past and never did it, but this is different. When my little man starts walking, I want to be able to keep up with him! I don't just want to watch him run and play, I want to run and play with him! This is serious business, people! Now, I just have to get off my overweight tuckus and get started! **Eyes couch lovingly** so long, comfy sofa!

Ugh! Someone just came in my front door and all the dogs went crazy and woke upmy peacefully sleeping baby!!!! Heads will roll...this is the first time he's really slept all day and he's CRANKY!!

Guess that's all for now...
