There's so many updates I have to give about everything; I'm trying! I have posts of each of the boys in draft, coming soon:) First I wanted to post these pictures and give a little recovery, breastfeeding, baby update.
This picture was on the back of the baby announcement :)
Baby: She's a good baby. If I had to describe her in one word, content. She's getting up 2-3 times a night to eat, but goes right back to sleep. She hardly ever cries. Last checked she was 6lbs 15ozs. I think she looks like both of the boys
when they were babies.
Nursing: Has been really easy. I think part of it is that she's a
great eater and the other part is that I've had experience. I did had a
difficult time with Andrew (getting him to latch), but I persisted and I
ended up nursing him for 6 months. I'm hoping to nurse her till she's
at least 6-9 months old.
*Note: Some medical issues discussed here. Recovery: I seem to have recovery difficulties (easy deliveries though). I had bleeding issues after Andrew and had a worse episode this time about five days ago. I'd been taking it super easy this time since I knew I was predisposed to having problems. I was heading to the kitchen and suddenly began bleeding profusely. I soaked through my clothes, got blood all over the bathroom floor and couldn't get it stop. It was so scary, I literally thought I was going to bleed out in a matter of minutes. Thankfully, it finally started to slow down. An ultrasound showed that I retained some tissue after delivery (gross!) and passing it caused all the bleeding. They put me on medication which cleared everything up, thankfully.
