Specialist Appointment and a Tooth

We went to see the CF specialist on Wed. His sweat test came back negative and we're waiting to hear about the gene analysis. It's such a relief to get an answer.

My 7 week old baby is cutting a tooth. WTF??? I was born with a tooth but sheesh. He's been hell to deal with and we don't want use orajel. Sigh.

Getting nervous..

We go tomorrow to see the CF specialist. I'm getting nervous like any mother would be. I hope my baby is ok. He has no symptoms of CF and all his numbers are borderline. Hopefully the doctor will tell us that it's a wasted trip.

My baby is so funny sometimes. He was hungry today and my mom gave him his 1oz. from the bottle. After she burped him he started screaming again. I started to get ready to put him on the boob and as soon as I took my shirt off he stopped screaming and started smiling. My baby is learning that the booby means food!! He's so cute!

My very own blog...

This is my first entry so I'll give a bit of background. 6 weeks ago today I had been a mother for less than 24 hrs. My poor baby has had a rough beginning, possible cystic fibrosis (we go to a specialist on the 25th), reflux, and a dairy allergy. Since I'm breastfeeding this means that I have to go dairy free. I miss cheese so much. I went from one extreme diet change while pregnant to this. I'm also battleing post partum depression. I started a medicine called Celexa yesterday; I hope it helps.
It's amazing how big my baby has gotten. He started at 8lbs. 1oz. and as of 6-13 he was 10lbs. 6oz. It's so wonderful to know that my body has provide the nurishment to make my baby grow so much. It makes me very proud when people ask if I'm breastfeeding and I get to tell them yes.
I guess that's a decent summary of life up to now.
