Sorry for not updating sooner. It has been a really crazy few days (as you can imagine). I'll update about the birth later, but we had him at 3:50 pm on Monday the 14th. I delivered at a different hospital then the one I had with my ds1 and it's been a very different experience. For one, it is a national company that owns this hospital so they have a ton of protocols that drove me nuts. The first is that they labelled Paxton a premie (at 36 weeks, 1 day), which he is, but that set off a whole other chain of premie protocols which involved testing him frequently and stressing the both of us out. So I had to deal with that for two days and now we are having issues with jaundice. He was prescribed the bilibed, which after strapping blinders on his eyes and having him scream for 5 minutes while on it, I decided we will not be going down that route. He also has the biliblanket which I am okay with because he sleeps peacefully while on it. I am also breastfeeding like crazy. Anyone have experience with this?
Anyway, this isn't a pregnancy issue, so I'll find more advice on this in our private group or the parenting group.
I am loving my little man and cannot get enough of him. My 5 year old has been great with him and so far, no jealousy issues.
I'll jump on when things settle down to see how you are all doing!!!
Happy birthing vibes to all of you!
