Plus he looks just perfect!
My little surprise - Page 2
Asher is doing beautifully. He's regaining lost weight on my milk that came in less than 48 hours after birth and less than 24 hours after he first got to nurse. He's so sweet and mellow and cuddly!
I was hoping we'd go home today, but my MW and doula both advised waiting to heal up more. Then I got hit with a crazy wave of exhaustion and slept a ton. Not 100% today as the med schedule keeps failing. But doing better. My 11yo had stayed with us last night but I sent him home with a friend. So it's just Asher and me and I'm moving around well enough to make that work. Still hurting, of course, but much better.
As long as my bp stays down, we'll go home tomorrow. Had a scary number earlier, so here's hoping!!
Heather, hurray for doing well! Asher is a beautiful name, and he sounds like a terrific baby!
You got your milk in fast! I've heard it takes a lot longer after a cesarean (mine took 4 days), it's awesome it came in so quickly for you!
I hope your blood pressure stays down and you get to go home tomorrow.
And I better sleep before I get even more overwhelmed with all the hard stuff AND all the amazingly good stuff.
