Comment on We thought a tricycle was a good idea, and then he grew up… by Leilani.

We just bought Eleanor a new bike last month. She’s 3. While I would normally do my research and purchase something that would last more than a year, I figured she would probably outgrow it by next year so we allowed her to pick one out at Toys R Us. Naturally she went with something girly, Pinkalicious. I’m not too fond of buying items branded with characters because all kids go through phases. Anyway, I’ll keep Performance Bicycle in mind for next year! :)

Private: Baby Notes: Week 23 + Fair Fashion
I was more vocal about my preferences with baby #2. The first time around, I think the shock of my labor and delivery gave me such high anxiety that I didn’t know what to do. I was afraid to speak up when it came to having too many guests. I gave in when it came to breastfeeding in front of visitors. The whole situation was not something I enjoyed, and I made sure the second time around was different.

So about that Mirena…
Thank you SO much for posting this. I know it’s an old post, but I’ve had Mirena for 2 years and have many of the symptoms you listed above. I never imagined it could be a result of my IUD. To be honest, I didn’t do much research on it after I had Isabel. I simply chose it because it was something I didn’t have to worry about daily or monthly. Now I plan to schedule an appointment with my doc and have it removed.
