valerie: pretty sure the swelling is from the IV. I had it too- my feet and ankles (which never swell), got really big starting a few days after I got home from the hospital. It lasted a few days, but it's gone now.
DH is going to be home tomorrow bc school was cancelled. He suggested that I spend the whole day alone in my room with the baby doing skin to skin and trying to nurse. No bottles or pacifiers- feed him with a cup or dropper so he doesn't get too hungry. Give it one more good chance before letting go. So that's the plan....
