I'm a mommy! I had the Csection right on time on Friday. The delivery staff was great but it was super overwhelming with how many people were involved. DD was born at 10:48am, weighing in at 5 lbs 1oz. I only got to see her briefly before they whisked her away.
However, she's been doing great! I feel like my recovery has been slower than I anticipated but I think it was due to the bed rest prior to the CS. I was becoming desperate because I wasn't able to see her until yesterday evening. Thankfully, DH spent a good deal of time with her and was even able to hold her briefly yesterday. She's been doing so well that she's already been taken a step down from the NICU. She still needs help with breathing of course but her blood work has been clear and they were able to stop antibiotics. BS is good!
I've been pumping religiously with nothing yet but I knew to expect that. I'm super excited because they said we can start kangaroo care this morning. I'm hoping that'll kick start something into gear.
And a question for the BTDT GD mommies, how did you know that your GD went away after birth? The dr's here told me not to worry about it and I'll be tested again in 6 weeks. But, I'm still getting the GD meals. I also don't want to overdo it and totally shock the system. At any rate, I'm not having any cravings at all surprisingly! The thought of sugar isn't even that appealing to me right now.
But curious as to how it worked for you? TIA!
