Due Date/Actual Delivery Date: March 3rd / February 28thPost Partum pains: So sore. Luckily made it out with only one stitch but oh the soreness. Cramping/uterus shrinking. And my hand is in so much pain from my IV. Who puts a hand IV on someone who needs both hands + an extra to take care of a newborn!!! Successes? Breastfeeding has been going A LOT better than I thought it would. What are you doing at the moment? Missing sleep, begging my parents to bring me Starbucks, and cursing everyone who came in starting at 5am this morning. I feel ya on the phlebotomist @smushi GTKY: What was your first meal after birth? Chicken quesadillas from Papasitos. And it was heaven.
Due Date/Actual Delivery Date: Feb 28/March 2Post Partum pains: had a second degree tear so that hurts when I sit, stand, adjust position in bed, walk, just about anything; nipples are so sore from BF!!! Successes? LO had 3 dirty diapers on his first day!! Second day isn't going so well since his feedings are so random and not always the best What are you doing at the moment? Laying in bed watching The Chronicals of Narnia on TV with LO sleeping on my chest GTKY: What was your first meal after birth? Grilled ham and cheese sandwich with fries from the hospital. Not bad food but I was sick during labor and hadn't eaten for so long that I had to take it easy
Due Date/Actual Delivery Date: due March 9, delivered March 4Post Partum pains: had some initial problems passing large clots and was having a lot of cramping whole nursing, but feeling pretty good now. Sore and achy, but overall okay Successes? Nursing is going well, happy to come home yesterday What are you doing at the moment? Nursing and watching tv while my husband has the older two outside GTKY: What was your first meal after birth? I ate a bunch of trail mix pretty soon after (he was born at 4:45 am) and then my husband got me a bagel and coffee from Panera later that morning. Yum!!
@bbrianax - the nurses told me to wake LO every 3 hours to feed. I asked when I could start letting him sleep at night and the lactation consultant said 2 weeks but the pedi said 4 weeks! Do you wake her more often to feed during the day and let her go at night? I would love to start getting some sleep.
