AFM, LO woke up and threw up all in his crib, so DH is home with him today. He threw up one more time this morning but has apparently been acting fine. I was sick on Monday night and nauseous Tuesday and yesterday, so I wonder if I passed a mild (mild for me, at least) stomach virus to him. Fx he doesn't throw up anymore today and stays perky. Happy Thursday!
XP from D16 Plus, eta, Leo has yet to meet baby. Hopefully tomorrow he can visit.
*********************************** Here's my birth story, sorry so long!
Alexander Isaac was born at 37w+6d on 11/30 @10:02 am. He weighed 6.5 lbs and measured 19.8 inches.
We had scheduled a RCS for 38 wks 12/01 but at my last OB appt on Tues my blood pressure was high at 168/96. Since I had pre-e with DS, Dr wasted no time and sent me to triage and told me to be ready for delivery that night if need be. At triage I was given some fast acting bp meds that lowered my bp to the 140's. But by evening it kept going up. The highest it got was in the 180's. I had to be started on magnesium sulfate (mag) to prevent possible seizures. My other lab work showed no other signs so dr waited to deliver until morning.
Weds morning at 8:30 am I was walked over to the OR room. The mag made me drowsy as heck and dh kept waking me up. I could follow the procedure since the drs talked thru it all. Awesome to hear where's her left ovary? I had a cyst removed a few yrs ago...that dr must've taken more than just the cyst. ? Otherwise, once I heard baby cry I wanted to be closed up and done but my tubes needed tying. The entire procedure took less than 2 hrs.
Because of the mag baby had to go to nicu for 24 hr observation. Mag makes you really drowsy. After 24 hrs of delivering, I got taken off the mag and baby was brought to my room. My recovery is going much better than last time. I was thrilled to be able to get off the bed and walk pretty much on my own today. I also have a wrap on my belly...sorry, I can't think of the right word in english. But it's helping a lot. And now that we're both mobile and not attached to machines, Alex and I are figuring out this breastfeeding thing & enjoying kangarooing.
littlelion omg, he is so sweet! Glad your recovery is so much better than last time. BabyStandish yikes, maybe early bedtime for DS? Lo thought it was fun to fuck around at nap time too. He was taking all his loveys and blankets and hanging them on his crib rail. I finally told him if I had to come back up I was taking everything out of his crib. ourcrazynavylife I see no problem with more diapers. laceysbryan hope your lo is done with the vomit. No fun. Hope you're feeling better, too! reginaphalange3 heyyyy lady!
littlelion he is perfect! Glad you're feeling good and able to get up and about!
Not a whole lot going on around here. DH went into Boston for an event and DS is at my ILs' house (apparently H arranged that so I wouldn't have to be alone with the two kids so soon).
I thought the plan was for MIL to bring him back for bedtime, but as it's getting later and later I'm thinking maybe not and he's going to sleep over there. That kind of sucks because when he left earlier I told him I'd see him later, not tomorrow. I know he probably doesn't even notice or care but I like to tell him what to expect and follow through. Especially with the new baby at home, I want to make sure he doesn't feel like I'm forgetting him 😕

B is getting so big and talking up a storm! He's loving all the holiday things and even liked seeing Santa this year! (We've already sat on his lap twice at two different events) I'm trying to rein in my excitement though because all the fun Christmas stuff I want to do is adding up to way too much $$$. Although I think Jan will be a big disappointment for him after xmas fun and his 12/30 bday! Cheesin with Santa and Dory
littlelion if it makes you feel any better my love hates talking on the phone too. It took a LOT of coaxing to get him to talk to DH when he was in China and even then it was only "hi" and then he was done. Hugs! reginaphalange3 he's so cute! Lo is all about the holiday stuff too. raven hope you feel better! Is your trip postponed until you feel better? dashook hugs to you. Mom guilt sucks. ourcrazynavylife hahaha that's awesome. Lo just learned "echo" but he gets it mixed up with taco.... so he goes around randomly shouting "Echo! Taco!"
