We are home!

So this is going to be kinda quick, but we all came home yesterday afternoon. The girls are doing well, however, they have lost quite a bit of weight. We are breastfeeding and it is going well, but my milk still isnt in!!!!!! We have a follow up appt with our ped tmro and I pray that at least their weighs have stablized.
As for me I am doing good. Last night was a long night as we were up and down ALL night. DH sleeps like a rock so he really wasnt much help :confused: My pain is not bad at all, but the afterpains were awful!!!!
The other kiddos are adjusting, but they constantlywant to touch the babies and want to pick them up.
I will try and get back on tmro and give an update and and soon will post my birthstory.
Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers!
*FYI* I am stalking everyone Wink

Congrats on coming home! Remember that babies can lose up to 8% of there body weight before the worry starts and it can take a full 14 days for exclusively breastfed babies to regain birth weight Smile

Congratulations again!

DD lost about 10% after she was born - to the point they were a little concerned, and I think it took almost a month for her to regain her birth weight, but we persevered and she's perfect now!

GL with the breastfeeding!!

So glad you are all home and I hope your milk has come in now and those babies' weights are stabilized. They are adorable.

So glad to hear you all are home and doing so well! Those little cuties must be such an awesome addition, I can imagine your other children are just as in love.

Hope their weights stabilize but don't feel bad if you have to supplement for a day or even add mass pumping shifts to the schedule. You're doing great, momma!
