Bailey came home on Friday. Since the moment she was carried through the door way, I have yet to catch my breath. We all know I did nothing this pregnancy. Other than working until 35 weeks. I only sat on my rear end. My laziness, fatigue and morning sickness ruled me.
Bailey ended up staying in Milford hospital. They told me during the delivery they would only transfer her if the withdrawing was bad enough to warrant medication. We got lucky. It was a difficult week. It is still difficult. All she does is sleep, eat, cry and poop. She is never just awake and content, which breaks my heart knowing I am the reason why. It was a total test on my stability. I called my shrink and moved my appt up to monday to discuss safe meds.. I refuse to take anything that can interfere with her getting my milk. I have read and been told by more doctors than you would believe that my milk is what is best for her right now.
The hospital was amazing. Allowing me to come in go as I pleased. If I didn't have Thomas and Collin I would never have left at all. I had my own room all week long, not the gorgeous LDR room like the two days I was a patient, but a room with a sink, tv, full bathroom, etc etc.. I was also provided with 3 meals a day. Not the same menu as the patients get but still a menu.
Anyways. Since we came home all I have done is clean, feed and change Bailey, and try to sleep. I cannot stop going. Then when I sit like right now, I struggle to keep my eyes open... It sucks. I have so much cleaning that needs to be done, and every time I start getting really into whatever I am doing Bailey starts crying...
Her appt is Monday, unfortunately the kids pedi is on a leave of absense at the moment so she will be seeing the pedi's that were taking care of her in the hospital. I cannot wait to check her weight, as I am nervous though no one else is.. 7 6 at birth and 6 7 when she was d/c...
I hope everyone here is doing great. I really miss you all and my computer time. I cannot believe in exactly 6 weeks tomorrow I will be back at work
Congrats to everyone who has had their baby's and ELV to those still waiting!

i'm glad she's home! And remember, the cleaning will always be there... once in a while it's not horrible for you to rest. The dishes don't get up and leave hon. I know it's easier said than done, but rest is really important!
stop cleanign women and get some rest! hugs. dont you worry your a great mama. and btw neither of my newborns were ever awake and just awake. they ate slept cried and pooped... well they peed too im glad to hear bailey is doing so good. your a great mama dont beat yourself up. we can only do our best and strive to do better with everyday. hugs
im glad you are home!!!!!!! and thats awesome that she is doing so much better than anticipated. remember that your treatment was better than the alternative and this will pass. i know i am very nervous and guilty about taking my medication throughout my pregnancy too, its a very difficult battle mentally between feeling guilty and doing what you know you have to do. try to focus on that you did the best you could and the alternative to not taking the meds during pregnancy could have been worse. so, when can we see more pictures!?!? i cant wait!
