I think this is the first time I've had all day to blog. Not easy with a newborn but I'm still trying.
So first thing this morning we had our first dr appt. Overall it went well. We have to go back again tomorrow and Friday so he can check her weight and watch for jaundice. I'm betting if this wasn't a BC birth, we wouldn't have to do all of this. Anyway, I made the mistake of saying it was a waterbirth on top of a birth center birth and boy did I get a lecture. I rolled my eyes thru most of it. You'd think I was taking business from him! He likened going to a BC the same as if I was a pioneer or indian woman giving birth in the woods 200 years ago. Are you kidding me? I am still worked up over it. He's a great Dr but really, I don't need his opinion on my births. He actually said I shouldn't "advertise" that I had this birth this way bc not all women are that strong. He's seen women die. Again- seriously?! I'm just not sure what the hell to say to that.
So we came home and just as I was finally getting a nap late afternoon(couldn't sleep earlier) we were invaded by the IL's. I had already told my gf it was okay to bring over dinner (yummy btw!!) and my IL's came over with 2 humongous pans of lasagna, salad, cake, and bread. I didn't even know they were coming and all of a sudden I had 5 addt'l people in my house. I may have been a bit rude but I napped a bit more in my room, fed Bella and ate my gf's food. I felt a bit overwhelmed that everyone was here. I was happy to see my Dad though. He didn't get to stay long as I was mid-nap but he got to see his newest grandbaby.
Last night was rough. Bella just doesn't want to sleep by herself. About 1am after I'd tried everything I could think of, I woke dh and he went to the family room with her. She slept with him til 6 this morning so I could get some zzzz's. Even now, she's up and I just fed her and put her down 10min ago. I have a feeling she'll be sleeping with me tonight.
Okay, here are some pics. I finally got some on the PC tonight. The boys held her for the first time and Logan looked so proud. She also had her 1st sponge bath. Thanks to everyone for their comments. I love reading them all!
