I'm wondering what the rest of you are wearing, too. I'm 4 weeks pp, but not much fits me yet. I went to a thrift store and bought a pair of jeans a size up, they fit okay, but way to tight to be comfy all day. I have been trying to stay home as much as possible (flu and RSV germs!!!) so I wear alot of workout style pants, and just regular t-shirts. When I have gone out, I have worn jeans a size or two too big. Size 10s are fitting pretty good, and 8s are getting better, but still pretty tight. I prefer to just lift my shirt up, as opposed to a nursing top, or unbuttoning (takes too long).
Amber, sorry about the baby's arm, but glad she's here
As for vaccinations, they do give the Hep. B to newborns here, but I refused it. No big deal, but a warning that they do give in the hospital for those who might not know! Make sure and ask, and let them know that you are refusing it (I think I signed some form or something saying I refused it). Depending on your ped, they might want to start vaccinations at the 2 month appt. I do delayed, select vaccing of our kids, so I'm planning to eventually get the polio and DTaP, but that's it. MMR is delayed, too. I'm a bit hyped about this right now. I just read the local paper ~ I noticed the picture of a girl I remember in HS a few grades below me, so I decided to see what it was about (it's a small paper, so they do lots of little so-n-so got a promotion, ect.) but this was an obituary! They didn't mention the cause of death, so when my mom called, she told me... FLU VACCINE!!! She got one, and got sick, in a comma,and then died, leaving 2 small kids!!! She wasn't a friend or anything, but to die at age 22 b/c you got a flu vaccine is just beyond me!!! It's making me nausous just thinking about it! There is risk in everything you put in your body, so make sure *you* know the risks involved and that you feel the benifit outweighs the risks. It's your body, and your baby. You can refuse anything you are not comfortable with, or you can always delay if you are not sure. There is no time-table, just a recommended time.
Okay, off my soapbox now...
I took Laina to get weighed at 1 month, she is 9lb, 9.5oz!!! Up from 6lb 15 1/2 oz (just say 7lbs). At 2 weeks she was 7lb 10oz, so she has grown a lb a week the last 2 weeks!!! She is getting so big, the NB clothes are too small now, and she is fitting nicely in the 0-3 month stuff. She is about to outgrow her XS FB, but the KLs, and the small FB are fitting very well now!
Well, hope heve has her baby soon... and a very easy homebirth
