How was the birth experience: Strange to say the least
I had an emergency c/birth, but I'm not dissappointed and they babies are perfect. They never went to NICU, and roomed with me most of the time. The well baby nursery was upset I had them so much because they loved playing with them. they rarely have multiples in the well baby nursery so we kept fighting over them.
I got to stay in the hospital for 4 nights- and we got a pretty good nursing relationship down in that time. Catherine forgot how to latch when we got home, but after bottle feeding her EBM a couple of times, she has "remembered".
Whatever works! Since they were born at 36w 0d, the lataction consultants at the hospital were amazed that they were both nursing, and didin't need once oz of formula
How are you doing? Well considering my strength was compromised by 3 weeks of strict bedrest, and I'm doiing way too much since I've been home. Still quite sore, but otherwise okay. This recovery has actually been easier than DS1's birth. Maybe I'm just delirious
Link to your birth story? Haven't gotten to it yet. Will eventually in my copious free time
And update when applicable.
