Hi there ladies! I know Its been a while since I wrote, but caring for a newborn and 2 yr old its not easy. This is just a quick update. My baby girl Tatiana its almost 5 months (on the 30th) old and weights 17 pounds
Dr finds her in great health, and she's only been breastfeed. She was born with a GERD problem (acid reflux) and we saw the specialist who placed her on a med to help her. She has seen done a lot better and now almost 5 months later seems to have outgrown it. She sleeps with me, so I notice how she finally sleeps all night, and no longer throws up. She's happier and so am I. Aside from the GERD, she has no issues and I plan to start her on cereal at 5 months. My oldest is also doing great, gained weight and outgrew her allergies
Regarding the keppra, they both did well nursing while I been on keppra, and I plan to nurse the second for at least at year as well. I did great with post partum and past my 6 week PP check up. Now I have my Neuro apt next month where Ill discuss weaning off the Keppra (currently on 1000mg BID). I dont plan to have any more children, but Im also tired of taking daily meds. I know it will take more years to come. because it cant be rushed, but I pray one day to be off. We'll see what the neuro tells me. For now I'm just excited and Very Blessed to have been able to give birth to 2 beautiful baby girls while on keppra and after a brain surgery. I Thank God everyday for such Blessings! Overall I cant complain because both Labors were also easy and fast. My first lasted 31 mins, and my second only 15 mins of pushing. I feel truly Blessed!!!
Now ladies I want to hear about your births. How was you births? How are the baby boys doing? You guys still on the meds? Write when ya can, i know its hard to find time while caring for newborns. I Pray all is going well for ya. God Bless ladies
