Johnny woke up vomitting yesterday. He acted fine and was begging for some milk. After he asked for the tenth time, I gave him some. BIG mistake. He vomitted that all over my living room and recliner. So, I had to clean his bed, bathe him, clean our carpet and recliner and clean all the laundry he puked on… all the while trying to keep Joley calm. Not fun. He ended up feeling better by evening but only ate saltines and applesauce all day. Today, he is back to being a holy terror so I think he is fine. 🙂
This is going to sound stupid, but I just realized after my doc appt this week that I have two incisions. Is that normal? I can’t feel anything (still numb) and don’t bother to look below the one that I just got with Joley so I didn’t even realize that there are two. I am going to get a copy of my surgery report because I want to know what happened during my surgery. But, I was wondering… any cesarean moms out there, do you have more than one incision for more than one baby? The one I just got is about an inch higher than the first one. It just seems odd to me.
Oh, and anyone willing to chat with me about “normal” postpartum bleeding while breastfeeding, shoot me an email. Ok?
Baby is stirring so I am off to feed her.
I almost forgot…
Joley gained 4 ounces at her appt yesterday. I was very happy about it (that is twice what she had gained in the 2.5 weeks before) but the Nurse Practitioner poo-poo’d my efforts and hard work and asked me if I would give her formula. I left and cried. I would have just liked to hear that it is good she is gaining… we will keep an eye on it… keep up your hard work… etc. But instead, I was made to feel like I am starving her. She gained a half-ounce a day, which I know is low as far as averages go, but she is gaining. I was also told that I have a supply issue (how the hell would she know) but I really don’t think that is an issue at all. Regardless, Joley is nursing more efficiently, she is taking a 3-4 ounce bottle at night while I pump, and she is peeing/pooping the way she is supposed to. I just want her to be okay but a little encouragement would have been nice… I would never do anything to hurt my baby. If she needs formula, so be it. I am totally fine with that… but why do we have to go there now when she is just starting to gain?
