I had the staples from my c-section removed today, and steri strips put on. He said the incision area couldn't look any better. He said walking is okay but he wants me to take it easy the next few weeks. My blood pressure is still high despite taking Labatelol 100mg 2x a day. It was 174/100. He doubled my dose. Hopefully it comes down. I had the same trouble after the twins were born so I expected it. My body is done having babies. No more for me. This has been so hard for me emotionally and physically. I try not to complain because I know how lucky I am but I could never do this again.
I've lost 20 of the 31 pounds I've gained so far. Not bad for a week.
Halleigh is doing great. She is such a sweet, quiet baby. She hardly ever cries. Breastfeeding is going well and she has gained back 3 ounces that she lost in the hospital and grew an inch. She has to have a ultrasound of her hips at 6 weeks old. Breech girls have a higher chance of having a hip problem so her doctor just wants to make sure.
