I'm wondering if this is what life is going to be like for a while? :) Catching up. I haven't blogged anything in the last two or three weeks. I feel like things are so so busy. I have tons of pictures on my phone and no real pictures on my camera. It's just so much easier and quicker because I always have my phone on me. I need to get better about using my camera though. Maybe once Demry gets a little older it will be easier.
Basically the last few weeks have been lots and lots of family time. I haven't really even left the house until this last week because it was spring break. The weather was great so we tried to spend as much time outside as we could. We went to the park a few times and played outside a bunch.
Demry is doing great, and so far (knock on wood) so am I. I am pretty much feeling normal with just a few hints of sad days here and there. I am hoping it stays that way (my postpartum didn't kick in until week 5ish with Kai). My milk seems to be doing ok too. Demry's weight was down in the beginning so we had a second weight check when she was like a week and a half and she had gained almost back up to her birth weight and the doctor was happy with that, but just be sure (because of my history with milk problems) he wanted to see her back in two weeks which was today. Her weight was up by almost 20 oz. (she was 8 lbs 14 oz) which was awesome. The doctor was super happy and totally surprised that I wasn't having to supplement at all. It was a good feeling. I will say that I have to feed her often to get her satisfied. She likes to cluster feed....like every hour (which really means like every half hour once you have finished nursing), two or three times before she is actually content and then she will nap. I think it's because I probably don't produce enough at one time so it takes her nursing two or three times to actually get full. That's ok with me. Maybe my milk will actually catch up by doing that. I am just trying not to stress or worry about it this time. If it gets to the point where she isn't getting enough then I will just start supplementing. I have come to realize that I just really have no control over it and I can't let it consume me. It's not the end of the world if I have to supplement...or stop nursing all together.
Anyway here is picture OVERLOAD from my phone. Mainly of Demry... haha.
