Roids. Let me tell ya. Not fun. But I got them with Delia too, just not quite this bad I don't think. I was sort of stupid and pushed for a long time (ineffectively) while sitting back sort of.
I keep trying not to sit, but it's hard to lie down SO much. I broke out the bottle of witch hazel I had from after Delia (well, I broke it out a few months ago during pregnancy!).
We took Henry to the hospital today for his PKU test and we switched my scheduled 40 week appointment to his first well baby appointment. We weighed him on my postage scale yesterday about 26 hours after birth and he was 9 lbs even, then at the doctors he was 8 pounds 13 and 3/4 ounces, so we're going with the 9 lbs even number. Probably even a little over if we had weighed him sooner. The nurse measured him at 21.5 inches long. I don't think he's quite that long but I'm not going to argue. LOL I was wrong on all counts - NOT smaller than Delia and also not a girl, and also not born after my due date. Do I care? Not one bit!
Oh! The BEST part of today is that they typed his blood and he's NEGATIVE!!! So I didn't even have to get the rhogham shot! This boy knows how to please.
Oh - I got my first dose of doctor-penis fear. LOL I hadn't even thought about it. Then, my doctor was doing the exam and all of a sudden she said "testicles have both dropped.... penis looks fine" and I found myself catching my breath in fear that she'd mess with it at all. But she didn't. WHEW. So now I'm in THAT club - the penis protection club.
Off to work more on my birth story...
