My armpits smell like pancakes.

I really didn't intend to have two posts about pancakes in a row. We've been having some problems with Finn gaining weight. The doctors think I just might have to supplement with formula. The doctors don't know who they're talking to. Actually they do, and they've been gingerly bringing it up for a couple of months now, trying to get me used to the idea. So I've started eating oatmeal everyday, which is supposed to increase milk supply. And I've started taking fenugreek. Now fenugreek is what is used to give fake maple syrup its smell. It has the strange side effect of making your pee and sweat smell like maple syrup. It's kind of a strange sensation to be made hungry by your own smell. Kind of cannibalistic. If Finn grows up with an unhealthy love of pancakes, we'll know why. On a side note, when I looked up a picture of pancakes, one of the first pictures was of a woman with her breasts in saucers pouring syrup on them. It would have been a perfect picture for this post, but I decided to keep it clean.

Ha. I looked up that photo. Strange and disturbing. I'm sorry you smell like maple syrup. Better then smelling like garlic.

I'm going to be in the same boat as you very shortly...I've been pumping less and less while at work, and Pippa's frozen supply has dwindled scarily. Just imagine the sniffs if we go out together...maple syrup yumminess for everyone!
