Thought I would give a quick update since delivery :) Our girl is starting to grow and I think she's finally putting some weight on. At her one week check up she had not gained any weight since leaving the hospital. I felt she wasn't doing well during our nursing sessions so I started pumping (moan!) I've been giving her my pumped milk all week and she just gobbles it down!! Now that she is more alert and the jaundice is mostly gone, I'm hoping to try to go back to nursing her without having to pump (we'll see how she does). I think she just likes using me more as a pacifier than anything. I'm praying we can get this nursing thing down together!!
I had a rough first week and a half. I started getting severe pain and had a fever after 7 days. We went to the doctor and I think things are finally getting back to normal :) I will go for a CAT scan on my abdomen in July to check on my distasis recti. It gets a little worse with each pregnancy, but the doctor did not feel any hernia developing.
We have actually started back into our new school year. Crazy I know after less than 2 weeks, but the kids are excited about it. We will start slow (doing maybe 1/2 days) and work our way up to a full day. Our 9 year old (who should be entering grade 4) will only need a few months to finish grade 4 completely before starting into 5th grade. Our 6 yr old is starting grade 2, and our 4 yr old will be learning more phonics and developing his reading skills.
Other than that, we are adjusting to our new days, our new schedule. I can already see that I need to become MORE organized in order to accomplish feedings, chores, school, etc. I can see some charts in my future!!!
