Since so many of us have delivered I thought we could start a thread for all of us to check in.
how is everyone doing??
overall, we're doing great. DH has taken this week off and has been spoiling us. He is doing most of the care for the girls and just letting me enjoy my little guy. Still feeling fine as far as recovery. I'm a little sore still but not too bad. Breastfeeding is actually harder this time than it has been before. He gets very eager at the boob and has a super strong suck. He latches well but tends to come off a little and gave me some sore nipples and pain when he first latches. I saw a lc yesterday and she helped me figure out how to latch him better and its helping a little. The girls were so good at it- we never even had to work at it. This time is a little different but once I get him on he eats well and is getting plenty. Its just the initial latch that has some issues.
Hormones are going crazy and I'll break down crying just looking at him. Guess i'm feeling a bit sad to be done with this part of my life and trying to enjoy every second of it. I could just sit and hold him forever. I told DH during labor I was SOO glad we weren't doing this ever again but I would totally do it again- if only we were a little younger. or maybe thats just the hormones talking.
my girls are adjusting pretty well. The 6yo is a bit jealous of the attention the baby gets and is acting out a little. The 5yo is fine.
I can't even believe its almost been a week. Already time is flying. I really expected to be late so going early threw me off and the past week has just been surreal.
hope everyone else is doing well.
