Another Week of Weight Gain!

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:26 pm by bk2nocal

M is up to five pounds, seven ounces.  Not quite five and a half pounds, but close.  I have been a grumpy Gus for the last day or so.  I am having my first post-pregnancy period and on top of everything else, I think it drove me over the edge.  I had a little breakdown last night thinking of everything I had to do and how exhausted I already was, so when I got up at 5 a.m. to do M’s feeding, I stayed up and started a load of laundry, put the dishes away from the dishwasher, loaded the dishwasher, sterilized bottles, and got through some email.  That made me feel a bit better.  We then had to go to M’s Dr. appointment.  Still not producing enough milk, but they said that it may take up to two weeks to fully get the effect of the drug they have me taking.  I am hoping it happens soon…and I’m hoping M starts to breastfeed soon so I won’t have to pump so often.  Once again, I am trying to motivate myself to be more serious about getting the breastfeeding to work.
