Ok, sorry to ask so much advice. I tried nursing one twin (Aaron) and he ate, but hurt my boob and only prefers one side. The other twin (David) will fall asleep after 2 minutes, so I have to bottle feed him. So I pumped afterwards to make sure each boob was emptied and one boob got engorged and the other was retarded. The engorged boob hurts very badly, like there are clogged ducts, I can't wear a bra (even wireless!). This is so frustrating, I didn't let Aaron nurse again, I am waiting for my boob to heal. So, I am just wondering, how are you suppose to nurse and pump at the same time without blowing one boob way out of proportion. I didn't pump the one boob that he nursed on as long as the other either, so its not like I gave it double suction time!?? Now I have one boob larger than the other all the time, ever since my attempt. I think the problem is that he is use to the bottle and doesn't latch correctly, but I don't know how to make him eat right, I keep re-latching him but then he gets tired and frustrated. Anyway. I don't know if I should just keep pumping or try again some other way, or try to stop pumping all together and make them only have the option of the breast (that sounds like a nightmare!), they were born a month early but now they are approaching the time when their due date was, so perhaps its time to wean them of the bottle? I don't know, anyone out there have any suggestions on HOW to make this transition without going insane!. Thanks.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
