Rough Nights... again

I guess I have been asking for it. I have been very boastful (ok, not boastful, but so happy) lately because the girls have FINALLY gotten on a manageable schedule. Then, just to remind me how rough things can be, the past couple days have been TERRIBLE!

We have had (for a couple weeks now) a good long spell of sleep each night. In bed by around 10:30, sleep til 4 or 5 and then back to bed for a few more hours. During the day the girls would eat around the same time and were generally so pleasant. The past couple nights they are up and down until 1 or so and then up every 3-4 hours to eat. In between feedings they are waking up and just fussing. Bry and I are exhausted all over again and the girls are having so many feeding issues. Gracie isn't eating, she pukes all the time and she is now rejecting the nipple. Abby is eating sporatically, fussing during feedings and puking. During the day she is terribly fussy. On top of it she is not picking up weighth like she should.

Hopefully it is a passing stage. Guess we will have to wait and see.

* Updated to Add* Yup, Gracie does have reflux. She is on soy and rice cereal to combat the reflux. The doc was hesitant to prescribe b/c she was so small at birth. The rice helps a lot but does not completely fix it. If things haven't improved at the next pedi appointment the plan is to discuss meds.

It sounds like they are having a growth spurt! Hope it gets better soon.

I agree with Elizabeth!

Also, just a suggestion, but has Gracie been seen by the doc for reflux? It sounds like what my little guy was doing before we got his under control with some Previcid.

Hope your nights get back to normal soon...



About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
