So there may be some improvement but it is too soon to tell. I am still headache prone, tired, foggy headed, and sick to my stomach but I did have energy for 2 hours yesterday so this might be a sign something is working. Now if we could just get my brain back online.


Alexander is too strong for his own good. He got away from me and bumped his head. It wasn't hard but there is a tiny bruise and I feel bad. I feel like I failed him but I know at some point every child will do something like this. Am I a bad mother because I am not strong enough to hold him when he has a holy hissy fit? I didn't drop him but he did fling his head so hard I lost hold of his upper back which is how he hit his head.


Edit, oh and I go back on the forearm crutch tomorrow because my leg is getting too weak. I am grateful I have an ultimate baby wrap because now I will not have both hands free when walking to hold onto Alexander but the wrap holds him pretty well all by itself.

DONT be so hard on yourself!!!!! When my oldest was little he was a sudden roller......meaning he rolled off of the bed 2 times before we really understood how he could even roll so fast. He was fine both times....in fact the 2nd time the dr just said....they call them bouncing baby boys for a reason!!!! I am glad you are feeling a bit more energy!!!! just let alex's bumps and bruises roll off you. He will have many!!!!! Its normal and bothers them much less than it bothers us mothers.

I'm not a mother, but i've never known one who didn't have a guilt complex about something! Don't beat yourself up sweetie! Judy

Red, blush is right, really you are not a bad mother - you wouldn't care otherwise! baby's are pretty hardy. he will be fine.

wait until you try to pick him up and he head butts you right on the bridge of your nose. My kids all did that. now my grand-daughter is perfecting the trick!

I am very sorry you are having a hard time. take care of yourself as much as you can.
