I know how lucky we are to have such loving and helpful parents. Not everyone has that.
I'm feeling better today. It was really hard being away from her all night, but we all made it through okay. Samantha had a follow up at the doctor's today to check her weight. She gained 6oz in just a couple days! She is 6lbs 9oz now! The doctor was pleased with that. We have been increasing her feeds a bit and basically feeding "on demand" instead of every three hours as the NICU advised. It's totally thrown off all the feeding times, but whatever makes her happy and has her gaining weight! Hopefully, this will help her sleep more and give her momma a break at night. My husband and my MIL said she was pretty good for them last night. So it looks like my daughter just likes to give me a hard time! :) Isn't she starting a little early??
My husband has been such a rock star with the baby today. He totally stepped up and was Mom AND Dad while I was sick. He even made us dinner tonight.
I'm glad every once in a while there are days like this where I'm reminded of how lucky I am. A great family, a wonderful husband, a roof over our heads, food on our table and a beautiful miracle in our arms...
Oh, by the way. AF is an evil b****!!! She is trying to kill me. I had heard that it can be bad the first time after pregnancy. But bad? More like...brutal!
