The next day she was down 10.6% of her body weight, so she spent the next few days in the isolette, only coming out to nurse (which she took to right away!! Very much a relief after pumping for DD1 for almost 2 years!). She did have to stay in the hospital a couple extra days & was fed via bottle when I wasn't there, but since we've been home she is 100% breast fed. That makes EVERYTHING so much easier!!
Even the fact that I ended up w/ a c-sec instead of a VBAC isn't throwing me quite as much this time. I am very much mourning the fact that I will never actually give birth normally, but this one doesn't feel so much like a betrayal, if that makes sense. Probably not.
