It's already been a week (almost... not until this evening!).
Life has definitely changed dramatically. I was going through some major anxiety this past week... just the newness and bigness of it all. It definitely wasn't as peachy of an experience as I expected it would be! BUT... I am so blessed by this little baby... I wouldn't change anything for the world. (Except maybe her feed/sleep schedule!)
We had 2 pediatrician appointments this week to check on her jaundice. It wasn't as high as the doc thought it would be... but he wanted us to come in the next day to have her levels checked again. Good news... she had gained 3 oz (in one day!) and her coloring was looking better, so she didn't have to get that horrible test again! Everything is looking good. Of course, the other night when she was throwing up this nasty orange curdled cheese looking vomit... we were not so sure! But she has been fine since... just wants to eat ALL. THE. TIME. Props to all of you breast feeding moms... it is a tough job! I hear it gets easier... I hope that's true!! I find myself feeding in the wee hours... trying to keep my eyes open and not slump over snoring!! I am not a good daytime sleeper.. so I'm having a hard time adjusting to her schedule. All I can say is that I hope it gets easier.... soon!
I apologize for my lack of blog-reading. I feel so out of the loop from everyone... but I guess that is to be expected! I hope to get back into it more as things start balancing out for us. Cory goes back to work tomorrow... I am dreading that! He has been so amazing!!! But luckily I have help coming every day next week... so I hope I won't get too overwhelmed!
One of these days I plan on sharing my labor story... :)
