Juniper is doing quite well, I guess! But, boy, does she nurse a lot, a lot, a lot!! I seriously don't remember our other kids doing this (dh doesn't, either). If she's not asleep, she's nursing, 24/7. I'm sore. The initial latch on is still very sore and I'm hoping this is due to poor latch issues early on. The pain goes away quickly, though, so I'm not too concerned. If it doesn't get better in another week or so, I'll have it checked out.
Most nights she sleeps through, only waking to nurse or for a possible diaper change. This morning, after 11 hours in bed, I finally just got her out of bed at 9am! Time to get up, girly girl! I really liked the 2.5-3 hour chunks she let me sleep, though (of course, when she wakes to nurse, she wants to nurse for at least an hour - I get a lot of reading done).
Due to the cesarean, I obviously don't have any issues "down there" which actually is very nice. It's our 13th anniversary today and if I wasn't still bleeding, I'd consider DTD! My incision is healing nicely and I'm no longer taking Ibuprofen for pain/swelling. Working on walking now - trying to get my speed up. I really don't like coughing or sneezing - that hurts.
She was 9#15 at birth, 9#2 at 2 days (after 15 meconium diapers), 9#7 at 3 days and 10#1 at 6 days. She's big and solid. I'm guessing she's close to 11# by now, especially with all the nursing!
I was 179 at delivery and 161 on day 3!! That was a nice surprise. Although not unexpected - I seem to lose 1/2 right away, another 1/4 within a few weeks and then hang on to the last 1/4 until I work on getting rid of it.
Dh is home. Home until July 9th or so. It's been very, very nice. We're testing a new sling fabric that dh has fell in love with so he's wearing Juniper a lot. She has at least one 2 hour nap on Daddy every day. He loves the down time! Watches movies on his iPod.
Our older kids have been at our cabin with my parents all week. My MIL is coming today to watch the younger two. Dh and I are getting haircuts and going out to eat for our Anniversary. Some alone time! Woo-hoo! Well, with baby, of course.
