Days since Birth

Sorry it's taken me so long to publish about her birth. I have had a rougher time recovering from the c/s than I thought I would. Today is the first day that I actually don't have much pain.

Jordyn had been doing really good nursing until a few days ago. She got some reflux and real bad gas. Yesterday all she wanted to do was sleep so after much crying and trying to force her to eat, we started feeding her through a medicine dropper. We managed to get enough breastmilk down her that she is at least latching on and sucking a little today. I put Anthony in charge of feeding from the dropper, which means I got sleep some last night. With getting a little more sleep last night, I feel better today.

At her two day appointment, Thursday 7/29, she weighed 6 lbs 10 oz. We went back to the doctor this past Monday, 8/2, about the reflux issues, and she weighed 6 lbs 14 oz. She has probably dropped down from that since she wouldn't eat very much. She is holding her head up a little bit and she watches us more.

We made a trip to BC Monday to visit Nannie & Granddaddy. They are just tickled pink about her! Aunt Andrea & Aunt Liss got to hold her too while we were visiting. Depending how I feel I may go stay with Nannie the weekend that Anthony goes back to work. I don't remember much from the hospital on Sunday but I do remember Nannie taking care of me while I was sick. Being an adult and away from family, you tend to forget how good it feels for your mom to take care of you. Nannie has always been there to take care of me but I'm usually to independent to let her. It felt really good to be taken care of in the hospital by her!
