poor girl :(

The past couple nights, Natalie has been waking up and crying for about 30 min!!! :(
We're suspicious that she might have GERD, Gastroesophageal reflux disease. It's a more severe form of heartburn/reflux. They had it as babies, but Natalie had a slight case and Kiley's was worse, so it's wierd that Natalie's having trouble.

Tonight Natalie confirmed that it is deffinetely her stomach, she kinda pulled at it while we were reading books, and you could tell she was frustrated about it. :(

So, tomorrow, I'll have to call their ped and pray that he will be able to correctly diagnose what is going on. :S


  1. Awwww! Poor girl! So what is GERD? Poor you too, getting up every 30 minutes would be no fun!!

  2. GERD is Gastroesophageal reflux disease, it's worse than normal heartburn. :(
    she just gets up around the same time every night and cries for 30 min, till she calms down and we can read for a bit and try to get her put down.
    It's so hard knowing they're in pain!! :(

  3. I hope your little one is feeling better. I found you on nicoles site. Loved your traditions. Think I might put the 12 days of christmas to use next year. I am now following you. your babies are too cute!! my oldest is a twin we lost his twin and she was born sleeping.

  4. sarah-Thanks!!! Natalie is feeling better, her ped put her on zantac and she has a follow up appt on mon. So sorry to hear about your loss, I was scared of something happening. I had severe pre-eclampsia and the girls came at 33 weeks. Natalie was 5 lb and Kiley was 3 lb 11 oz. :D

  5. Derek is doing the 12 days of Christmas for me this year and it's so sweet. I'm loving it, that's for sure.
