I will do a post about her birth and coming home later. Sunday night and Monday went really well, I was extremely surprised. Then Monday night, what a difference. I was up with her most of the night feeding her every 45 minutes to an hour. Thankfully we had her 4 day check up with her pediatrician. I also, was frustrated with nursing so I made an appointment with the lactation consultant at the Cox Women's Center. We did not meet with her doctor but the one we met with was wonderful as well. We did meet her doctor in the hospital so we feel extremely comfortable with our decision.
At her doctor's appointment she weighed 8 lbs 6 ounces and measured at 20.5 inches. The weight loss is normal but I find the length measurement funny.
Ready for her first doctor's appointment
One thing no one prepared me for was the emotional roller coaster your hormones take you on after giving birth. It is like the sun goes down and you turn into a crying machine. I even cried over throwing away the newspaper my dad bought on the day she was born. I made James get all of the trash out of the outside bin so I could go through it to find the paper!
