Finally joining this side. DD will be 1 week tomorrow : Nursing has been SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than with DS (who did 5 days in NICU and was never going to be able to nurse since I had BR surgery....yeah, sure, okay....). My milk was in at 48 hours and she's nursing every 2 hours pretty much round the clock though last night we had a 3 hour stretch twice (but not back to back LOL). DS is in love with her as is DH (his first NB since DS was 11 mos. when we stopped being just friends). I am almost over PP bleeding, my sex drive has returned fully : and things seem to be working out....Oh, except eating...No appetite and very little time to eat. HOw's everyone doing with weight from PG and such??
Nic is now 2 weeks 2 days old, he's nursing really well although pumping afterwards is a bit of a problem for me right now, just not enough milk coming out. Nic was born early at 35 weeks and weighed 5lbs. Last week at the doctors he weighed 4 lbs 11 oz and we go back on Tuesday for another weigh in.
He's such a tiny guy but so funny! He has longer alert/awake periods now and it's so funny to see him looking at us and all around. His sleep grins are too adorable and we're definitely enjoying parenthood. Dad and I are both so exhausted but it's worth it, we've had our share already of "omg, this is too cute!" moments and each day brings something new.
