Yesterday Carter and I both saw the doctor. He went to his pediatrician for jaundice follow up since he had it mildly in the hospital. Dr said he looked great and no need for bloodwork. We can put him in front of a window to help the rest of it resolve. At birth he was 7-10 and discharge was 7-3. At the visit he was 7-9. I had been keeping a log of all our feedings and diapers...formula, bfing, pumping, wet diapers, and dirty diapers. She was happy with his intake and output. His plastibell looked good and so did belly stump. Over all a good visit for him. He will get his newborn check up next week when he's 2 weeks old.
My appt was next. I was getting double checked for infection due to my pain problems. There was no sign of infection at all, which was a relief! She said I was still very swollen but healing and that my body was doing its job but very slowly. I was too swollen to check for an abscess so I have a follow up on Thursday. I got a refill on my lortab and to take it every 6 hours around the clock to keep the pain under control.
Carter was so good during our visits. We both had a nice nap afterward. I feel like I'm in this motherhood club with the most painful initiation ever! Haha. Each day it gets a little better and I absolutely love this little boy with all my heart!
