This kid had a great doc visit today. He’s up to 10 lbs 4 oz…the doctor joked that I should bottle and sell my super rich breast milk. Um, I feel like that’s probably a thing in LA? Weird.
I’m having a hard time putting my thoughts into actual coherent sentences about this whole experience. Random things I want to record/share/remember:
Our labor and birth, quick and painless. Largely due to the epidural I decided on after getting to 10 centimeters in under 4 hours without one. Totally worth it. My actual words afterwards, “Oh I could totally be ok with doing that again.”
We spiked a fever afterwards and ended up staying in the hospital for a week as a precaution. Not ideal, but the extra time with the lactation consultant was rad.
My water broke in a dive bar while watching the World Cup. Now the bartender wants me to bring the baby in to say hi.
What did you do with your newborn during wake times? We do tummy time, activity mat play, song singing, avoid letting the dogs cover us in kisses, etc. But I don’t want to over/under stimulate him. Does that even make sense?
When will my vagina stop hurting?
When did you start exercising? I have 7lbs until I reach my pre-pregnancy weight (hashtag bless breastfeeding)…but I don’t want to mess with my milk supply by actually dieting. Just need to get the exercise other than walks back into my life.
When will I want wine again? Because seriously, I can’t believe I’m just not into booze anymore.
