Just call me Elsie. My milk came in with a vengeance overnight and little miss Bella gained 6oz overnight! She had a weight check this morning and was back up to 8lbs 0.7oz. The Dr seemed surprised since it's not unknown, but just unusual. I promise I didn't weigh her down with anything before putting her on the scale! LOL At least we're done with appts for at least 2 weeks. Yea!!
On the sleep front, I held her or attempted to put her down after feeding her every hour or two until 2am then dh took over and held her while he slept in the chair in the family room. She slept for a good 5 hours in his arms. I still didn't sleep well since I feel guilt over him not sleeping either but at least I got some rest. I'm sure we'll be doing it again tonight. She'll get it eventually.
I do want to thank everyone who has commented and congratulated! I love opening my email the one time a day I get to now (so hard for me!!). I have some wonderful friends!!
