    5:30AM -- Gone in to Labor and Delivery for planned C-Section 1st to start on IV fluids and Antibiotics. Antibiotics were to treat the Group B Strep bacteria I carried. Also planned C-Section was because Louisa head wasn't turned down either.

    11:34AM -- Well being passed 11:30 AM the Epidural was prepped before heading into C-Section
    12:34PM -- Baby Louisa delivered by C-Section 38w 1d. Dr. I seen done the C-Section Delivery. She took out the scar from 1st C-Section, done a mini tummy tuck and new incision was made. Just when about 2 years my 1st scar really been healing up I'll have a fresh new 1st  scar. Ah well.

    2 Hrs after being in the recovery room I was taken up to my new room. What matters most is baby Louisa born very healthy.
    2 Day in new room recovering I've been checking out to be doing really well myself, too. Walking around the wing and downstairs a bit. But things still bother me but not too bad. They are cramping, not passing gas, a hemorrhoid and sinus infection drying up.

    Saturday afternoon I was able to go home. Very happy and exciting when home I got the feeling baby Louisa was also happy to be home, too. I got to see her grinning/smiling for the first time. I wouldn't blame her being the hospital even for three days seems to be a long time. DH and I are very proud and happy for baby Louisa. She is so very healthy and very beautiful. Saturday night for the first time DH and I experience getting adjusted to times baby Louisa will wake up for changing, feeding and attention.

    Sunday, got a lot better. There were more visitors for Louisa, DH and I. My Godfather (cousin) and his wife came over to vist us. I really like the both of them. When they came to our house I thought our home still looked very cramped that I suggested to go for a short ride not to far from the house to visit my grandparents, too. My great Aunt being still there and my mom does like me to visit her a few times before she takes off back to Massachusetts. The visit with my cousins, grandparents, great Aunt, my mom and Uncle was well. Sunday night at home DH and I taking care of our little princess Louisa was a lot better.

    All Monday was a kick back day. DH and I thought about taking Louisa to see her Ped., but there was pretty much no ride. So I'll go with DHs mother early on Tuesday to take Louisa to see her Ped. DH will meet up with us later. He has an eye exam appointment as well.

    BF'ing still can be difficult at times but thinking I am getting the hang of it more and more. Very glad for that. I do not mind the bottle feeding but I do like to mostly BF as long as I can for Louisa. Tonight Louisa and I are here at home thinking of her daddy to turn out all right. DH is at the hospital tonight because he felt chest pains. But been calling and checking in having me know he's doing all right.

    Been awhile I know. Update on BF'ing I like to correct has become more easier. Nipples no longer been sore, but definitely not having trouble thinking if enough milk has been expressed to Louisa's satisfaction. I'm also bottle feeding formula, too, but doing my very best to BF. Been pretty wonderful knowing Louisa is satisfied by just BF'ing alone most of the time now.

    2w1d check up for Louisa. 7 lbs 12 oz and grown from 19" to 20 long I believe hearing right. Quite surprising of the growth spurt just in 2 weeks. But DD doctor very happy how she's doing. DH and I being parents for DD the Doctor says we're doing great taking care of her. No need to worry. Louisa is doing well.

    2 wk PP Wednesday
    (Myself)
    Weight check up 172 lbs
    Pre-Pregnancy: 182 lbs
    C-Section incision looking really wonderful and healing really well. There is still a little itchiness/sensitivity here and there but none too bad. No problem with any draining. There been a little spotting (dry blood) from the incision but that was during the hospital stay. A couple days. But been all cleared up after leaving the hospital and my PP check ups for 1 and 2 weeks has been very wonderful!

    Edit: Some reason I misheard the inches from 1st month. Because I did double check for last post how long Louisa was in her 2nd month.

    Mommie kind of concerned of her DD Louisa for about a week. I'm sure the spitting up from nursing and feeding her formula was all right. Because it hasn't been too much. But still I was concerned. Also the sounds of Louisa's allergies maybe blocked up and seeing the loose stools looked concerning to me, too. I took Louisa to see her Ped. in making sure everything looks fine. Her Ped. checked up on her and says that DH and I are doing a wonderful job taking care of our DD.

    Mommie also felt blocked up, too. Congestion, cough, and in the mornings have coughed up stuff. Louisa's Ped. also a family doctor, too, and he checked up on me. He says I sound fine. But still prescribed me to take a stronger but still safe medicine to take clearing up my cough/congestion.

    Wednesday/ Thursday of last week Louisa caught a cold. Looking after Louisa I cancelled my appointment with the OB on Thursday. Her first feeding her food she snorted out from her nose. I panicked but none too bad. Friday, DH and I took Louisa to her Ped. Day before there was no Dirty diaper but day of right before Louisa being seen for her Ped she had for me a Dirty Diaper. Again of all her feedings from the bottle she did coughed it all up. Her Ped. prescribed her three meds.

    She's been taking two of her meds along with the Infant Tylenol drops through drinking the Pedilyte (sp)? She's been taking that very well the most. With advice from my Aunt to give her feedings little at a time starting at 2 oz and patience, Louisa have been doing a lot better.

    Even MIL got Louisa to start her canned baby food Vegetables. She's been doing very well with those, too, that I give her which MIL gave me.

    Today, Louisa only spit up very little from trying to give her a 5 oz bottle of formula, and her meds mixed with 2 oz of Pedilyte (sp)? She had a very good nap. Now is up though and I'll be changing her diaper and maybe feeding her soon again.

    Just the other day I believe DH and I have put Louisa on her tummy in our bed and from there she's rolling over. On a more flat strong surface like Louisa's changing table she's can turn on her full side by herself. While holding Louisa in my arms or have her sitting up against some pillows on the bed she likes to pull up herself. During her feeding time, she's getting better at holding her bottle. She's talking a lot more after her feedings too. My goodness she is doing so well.

    When she's up she likes to see DH and I interact with her. While DH is at work and she's alert after her feedings I count 1 to 10 both in English and in Spanish. Also sing her the ABC's and sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." She smiles so big. I love my LO so much.

    Not sure if I have mentioned this before or not but Louisa can do a full push-up. Not just briefly either. Also can keep her head up in 90 degree angle while on her belly. On me and my DH's bed she can roll from belly to her back; From her crib she can roll over from back to front. I believe while on me and DH's bed when Louisa's on her tummy she likes to do some creeping. Gosh she is growing.

    Louisa is on delay for her 4 month Ped. appointment. But DH and I will get her to her doctor soon.

    Today, Louisa and I were sharing giggles just now. That really was the very highlight of my day to hear this.
