    Aww, she's tiny and perfect!

    Side note- so strange to realize Miss Rowan is likely similar in size to the little one I'm baking. Makes it more real! Thanks for the sneak peek!

    Thanks everyone.

    Rowan is doing well and I've been discharged. Everyone says I'm recovering really quick from the csection. I guess I just don't want to sit around and do nothing right now!! DH and I are considering seeing The Hobbit this afternoon even! My incision feels sore when I sneeze and it hurts when I stand at first then it feels ok once my muscles sort of adjust. I just hobble around slow. Going to bake a bit today as it doesn't require lifting.

    I'm pumping every 3 hrs and getting approx 5ml of colostrum now each time total, and a little more each pumping. No milk yet which is starting to freak me out but the lactation consultant isn't worried. Just need to keep pumping! We won't try any breast time until 35wks which is next Thursday because she's too small. But she has a feeding tube which they are putting the colostrum in.

    I didn't know about post-partum edema though and my feet and legs are so fat today! Before I was discharged yesterday the nurse said it was normal and could take a week to go down.

    I was just coming on here to ask how you were doing. Hurray for being discharged! Keep at it with the pumping- that colostrum is exactly what she needs right now, and it's nice to have something you can DO while she's in someone else's care, kwim?

    Don't worry about the milk. Colostrum is so much better for her right now.

    Glad you are recovering quick! Don't do too much and don't be surprised if you can't accomplish what you thought you could. I had that trouble after my gal bladder surgery. I cried cause I thought I could do something and I started it and then couldn't finish and it was a big mess and....

    I think the milk is coming in. Not as epic as I imagined (no firm boobs or engorgement) but I'm getting more and more liquid with each pump and it's not thick anymore…. I went from 5 ml last night total to 20 ml out of each boob just now!! Exciting!

    I kept a note book to record my pumping results. It made me feel better that it was working and being able to see improvement.

    Glad everything is going well!
