So after much thought, I decided to give Ella some rectal stimulation! Aunt Heather and Aunt Melissa told me that this would work and then the doctor said the same thing. So I get home last night and she was kind of fussy, I thought "I guess I could try it?" It wasn't as bad as I thought! I did it twice. On the second attempt we got some action, not much, but I'm ok with that. After about 30 minutes or so, she started getting REAL fussy. I thought "I wonder if she has gone any more?" I check her diaper and you can see brown from the out side edge. "Good, let's go change you!" Well I was in for a surprise... That diaper was fully loaded, with a type of poop unlike anything she had ever done, kind of like the consistency of mustard. WHOOOOO HOOOOO!!!

I don't think she was in a lot of pain, but my goodness that was a lot of poop :)

Ella stayed awake till about 8:30pm and I gave her a bottle and around 9pm I was laying her down. I woke up at 4am this morning, well Jeramy woke me up asking if the monitors were on. I got up and checked and realized SHE HAD SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!! Momma was full of smiles. I went back to bed and slept till five, Ella got up and moving about 6am. What a great night!
