I'm so sorry to hear both about your friend's baby and your husband's friend. I can't even imagine.
William is eight weeks old tomorrow. Where has the time gone?!?! We are doing really well... He had his two month checkup on Saturday, and he weighs 10 lbs. 11 oz. (up from 7 lbs. 2 oz.) and is 24" (up from 22"). I am so amazed that my body can keep his body alive--and make it grow! That's so neat. Breastfeeding was really hard for me at first...raw nipples, mastitis, etc. but it is going really well now and has even become a nice time. I never thought it would get to this point!
I am glad!!
I have felt really well since his birth (sore at first, of course) but am still bleeding. My MW referred me to an OB last week, so I went in for a checkup and had an ultrasound to see what was going on and to check to see if there was any placenta left in there. There isn't, thankfully, and she thinks it is a hormone imbalance that is keeping the lining from healing...something like that! She gave me a prescription for progesterone and I asked what she thought of me giving my body another three weeks to heal itself and she said she'd be totally comfortable with that... so I'm just hoping the issue resolves itself. Do any of you have any experience with this?
It has been fun to read your guys' updates and see pictures of your little ones! Here are a couple pictures of William:http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g1...n/IMG_2414.jpghttp://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g1...n/IMG_2342.jpg
