She has gained almost a whole pound! My little piggy.
She weighed in at 7 pounds 2 ounces at her two week check-up. She was 6 pounds 5 ounces at her visit a few days after coming home. I think she was 5 days old then..
Doc says shes perfect! Duh. :O)
The breastfeeding thing did not pan out, unfortunately. I spent a whole day crying about it. But you know, I can only do what I can do. I was not making enough. I bought a pump, and was only getting about a quarter ounce between both breasteses at any given time. The Doc says that the most likely reason is that my hormones are back to their pre-pregnancy hijinx. My thyroid was all stupid before, and if that is what has happened again, that could affect milk production. I could go on meds to fix it, and I will...but I cannot feed while on the meds. So..I did the best I could. She is growing and getting fat and stuffs so I had to just get over it.
Now if I could just get her to stop sucking on my shirt every time I hold her.
Soooo, now that it's over...have you visited the captain yet?
