A BIG HUG for everyone in here who needs it...
It's been a chaotic week here.
I found out Justin has jaundice on the day I left the hospital and I had to take him to pediatrics in another hospital for 2 1/2 days to treat it (suntanning). Staying in the hospital with him for so long has been very stressful and no sleep for me! I am never going back to this hospital again!! It was a different one from the one I delivered at...the room service was crappy, the hospital was noisy and the nurses were bitchy, and the room was so tiny and semiprivate.
: His jaundice level was 25 in the beginning and now it's around 11 so it's going down pretty fast. (levels 1-8 is considered normal).
So even though the delivery was indeed very fast, my recovery this time is extremely painful the second time around. I had hemorroids for the first 5 days, major cramping and blood clots till now and my back still hurts. Doctor said no picking up Christopher, who feels like 50 lbs to me right now!! and getting up takes an extra minute. My milk actually didn't come in until 2 days after I got home so in the meantime, I had to give him some formula, right now I am doing both breast milk and formula for Justin so DH can help me during the day and to help get rid of his jaundice.
Speaking of Christopher...I already feel like I haven't spend enough time with him, from the day I was in labor to yesterday when I got back from the pediatrics. I missed him.
Good part of it is that he's spending more time with DH!
Oh yea, Emily, I already feel like 2 hands and 1 lap isn't enough!! Usually once at night when both of them woke up and both wants boobie.
Well the weather sucks here, about 40 degrees where the normal is 65! I was hoping to go see the cherry blossoms in DC but now I am not sure.
Well I'll read you guys later mamas! Other than his jaundice issue, Justin is doing great. I can't believe he's actually a calmer and less demanding baby than Christopher!
P.S. I call Justin "Mr. Yellow Man".
