It’s been a while….

It’s been a while!! I promise I haven’t forgotten about the blog. 🙂 It’s just been a very busy time right now.

What’s been going on? Really what hasn’t? You all know that Gabrielle was born November 9, but sense then things have been busy. We spent some extra time in the hospital, made a run back to the ER, had our house packed to move, cleaned the house, stayed in a hotel for a weekend with our three dogs (which is insane!), dropped my car to be shipped to Alaska, drove half way across country to visit my parents, my husband drove the rest of the way across country to take the ferry to Alaska (again, insane with three dogs), dealt with buying a house long distance and closing issues, my older sister got married (and managed to pick cute bridesmaid dresses), and a flew half was across country with a 6 week old baby. Add in a good dose of moving, new house, and unpacking stress and you can say that life has been a bit more then what I can chew.

Hopefully things will be settling down a bit now. Yeah, I know, asking a lot with an almost 8 week old baby. But as we speak she is snuggled up next to me, fast asleep on her boob pillow. We are still working on breastfeeding, so more details to come on that. I’ve come to terms with the idea of having a limited supply of breast milk due to IGT (insufficient glandular tissue), but I am still working on trying ways to produce more. So when time (and sleep schedules) are a bit kinder I’ll be posting more about IGT and breastfeeding with implants.

With breastfeeding and the move to cold Alaska I’ve discovered why a padded bra is essential. And they are nearly impossible to come by in a 28J. Because of a wonderful clothing sell/swap page I have the chance to try Ewa Michalak and Comexim. Fingers crossed for a good fit, these poor boobs could use it.

My blog is officially over a year old. That happened shortly after Gabrielle was born so I missed it. WordPress released their yearly blog statistics. The post I published on Gabrielle’s birthday was my most popular post followed by my post about growing up with out breasts. A big thanks to Bratabase, Bras I Hate & Love, and Boosaurus for being my top three referring websites.

I’ve caught up on emails now, a big sorry to those that had to wait for a reply. Feel free to email any questions you may have or topics you’d like to see. I miss the blog world and I hope to back in it as a regular poster soon.

    Welcome to Alaska. And welcome to bra shopping online, because that’s what we big boob gals do up here. Especially in the island region of Southeast. No UPS so we have even fewer options, but eBay & Amazon still like us up here, & even Brastop ships here. If you’re inAnchorage there a Nordies but they only stock up to an F.

  2. Wow, what a couple months for you!
    Even naturally big breasts can have issues with supply…I supplemented with fenugreek and blessed thistle for quite a while. 9 pills of each, every day. AND, I had a frequent nurser. We used a nipple shield for MONTHS with babe #1, about a month with #2, and less than a week with #3. I’ve still got pretty flat nipples, so I think some of it is confidence 🙂
