Since we can't stop taking pictures, I thought I'd share a few. We are leaving tomorrow for a short trip to visit family and friends a few hours away (wish us luck!!!) so I wanted to post these before we left. As an update...She is growing great. She was weighed in at 8lbs 9oz yesterday at the pediatrician's office, so the breastfeeding is going well! My nipples are still a little sore so we did break out the pump and I've used it a few times so that daddy can feed Teagan but I am not having luck with the pump at all. I'm not sure what to do. I can only pump very little and there is always a ton of milk left in the boob! I called Me.dela because I have one of their better pumps and they suggested bigger breastshields thinking that my nipples may be too big (?!) but that wasn't the case b/c I bought those ($12.99) and then bought bigger ones (another $12.99) and still the original size M ones work the best, but I still only get at most 2 oz per breast and then I can still feed Teagan until she's full AND hand express milk after that! So, clearly my expensive pump doesn't work properly!!! Anyway, that is another story. Another update...and this one may be TMI, so be careful, lol....even if you didn't get hemorrhoids from pushing a baby out, give it a week or two and you may be surprised when they appear and OUCH!!!! I had to go to the OB yesterday b/c I've been having a problem with the back end...and they told me that women often damage those muscles during birth but are unaware until weeks later when the hemorrhoids come to visit. Ugh. I thought I got off so well with barely any damage and no hemorrhoids but there they are!
Oh, and after all of that, I'm dying to call up CCRM and make an appointment with my RE so that we can do this whole thing again!!! I'll outline my plan in future but I do see a retrieval and CGH testing sometime this late fall/winter. That clock is ticking!!!
Okay, anyway, here is Teagan in the last few weeks...growing:-)
Looking a little paranoid...enough with the camera, dad!
