I've given up nursing Oskar. And I feel pretty terrible about it. I tried everything and I still lost my milk and he wouldn't nurse at all most of the time. We had a day or two where he was doing great but then he changed his mind and wanted the easy food again. So it sucks. I've been trying to think about the good things that will come of this, like being able to really exercise, and wear a bra that doesn't make my boobs super saggy, and no more pumping, and eating normal again. But I would still rather nurse him, I guess that doesn't matter though. The good news is he's still really cute and precious and I love him so much.
I went back to the dentist yesterday, but this time it was a good dentist who numbed my mouth topically before he gave me the 7 shots in my mouth, unlike the stupid dentist who didn't numb me or even warn me that he was sticking a needle in my gums over and over. The new dentist had to completely take out the filling and redo the root canal that the other stupid mean dentist did. He put a post in my tooth and put a crown on it so now you can't even tell that it was broken. We did have to pay for the crown but it was worth it, especially since he said if I didn't have the crown I probably would have to get the tooth pulled eventually. Joel threatened to sue the mean dentist but I'm sure I signed something when I went in there saying I wouldn't sue no matter how incompetent the guy is.
