Az, take it easy girlie! I know I had a LOT of blood loss at the hospital - my iron went from 14 (high - I guess 12-14 is good for women) to 9 when I left, which is way anemic. I totally needed the nurses to walk to the bathroom with me the first days or so, I was always getting dizzy or hot or both, I didn't even shower until the next day, I felt that crappy. And I sat on the couch with diapers and changed Lauren right there instead of getting up for almost the first week.
Oooh she's turning into a normal baby now, has napped a lot today and yesterday, after having the Tuesday from hell (I had milk Monday night, guess I have proven we have an intolerance to lots of dairy!) which was screaming between sucking and popping off all day (which hurts!) and more screaming. So Weds. morning wasn't the nicest, but she did sleep in the kkafp, and by Weds. night she was napping on my lap (can't put this kid down ever!) and yesterday she slept between eating and I did put her down long enough to shower and do a little laundry. Last night she must have slept a lot, although I don't think any longer than 3.5 hrs. at a time, but she was nursing fast too, so I got more sleep than usual, and today she slept while we went out for lunch, and for 15 min. on the couch, and I'm seriously thinking about putting her down again to see if she can do another 15 w/o being touched. Oooh how exciting that would be, to be able to put her down for a bit and maybe a bit longer tomorrow, and a bit longer the next day. Oooh I'm getting excited here!
And YUCK, I just realized that our first NIP session at lunch was sloppy, as I was pretty soaked under the sling when we left - and now I smell like sour milk. Ew! But we did manage to nurse w/o the NASA nerds even realizing what was going on. They are really slow sometimes.
Oh, and for more nursing fun, I suggest we all go to the mall and sit near Victoria's Secret, I swear there is much more boob on those posters in the windows than would ever be shown on my body, but hey, even fully engorged, I'm not anywhere as busty as those models.
