I had my check up two days ago. I lost so far 6 kg or 13 lbs. Still have 10 kg to go to get to my pre-pregnancy weight. Around my stomach I lost 15 cm and I think using the belly wrap helps a lot. I have 93cm around the largest part of the belly. I went from size M belly wrap to size S in two weeks. I haven’t tried any normal clothes yet, as I’m housebound for another two – four more weeks before I will be able to get out more with the baby. I’m in my pj’s and sweats most of the time. I think I will start walking gently from next week for like 10-15 mins. My incision scar is a small smiley near my bikini line, very nicely sewn.
Baby boy had a check up too. He weighs now 3500 g, 52 cm, head circumference 36cm.
Had his blood drawn, poor fella, cried a bit, but took it like a trooper. Very brave. But it knocked him out to sleep for four hours. That never happened before. After he woke up, he almost ate my boob how hungry he was. For the rest of the day he was a bit needy and wanted to be carried a little more than usual. But today he is back to himself and calmer, even though, sometimes he cries out suddenly, like in pain.
Poor little thing. I had to hold him while they took the blood. I almost fainted with pain for him, I was sweating and feeling dizzy.My husband wanted to punch the nurse for doing that to him, but it had to be done.
I’m supposed to get a sample of his urine. They gave me two special small bags for that, but I guess I put them badly and all the pee went into his diaper. Oh well, I tried right?
Our pediatrician wondered how I cope with such a little sleep. I guess I don’t know, I just have to. Hubby does help a bit during day, when not working, but it’s me 24/7. It’s supposed to get better when he gets to six weeks. During the day, I don’t get to sleep much. Today I managed an hour after lunch. At night is mostly in half hour, sometimes one hour of sleep in between feedings and diaper change. My whole body is aching, back, arms, legs, head pretty much constantly.
Last night was like this: 11:30pm – 12:30am – 2:10am – 5:26am – 7am. It has been similar like that for the past week, so I’m tired. Very.
How everyone else is coping?
