Ok, so technically we're one day past the one week mark, but hey, who's counting, lol. Violet is doing awesome, and Livi is doing amazingly wonderful with her! We're still having nursing issues, so I am continuing to pump, and we are using formula to supplement. I'm much more upset about this then I ever thought I would be though. It sucks. I just keep telling myself that thousands of kids are raised on formula every year and they are fine (lol) but I guess it never crossed my mind that V wouldn't be a nurser. We had her follow up appt yesterday for her weight, and she's doing much much better! (Born at 7 lbs 15 oz; left hospital at 7 lbs 4.5 oz; on Saturday had a home nurse come over and she was only 7 lbs 1.5 oz. We needed to get weight on her!) Her new weight at the Dr's was 7 lb 10 oz, go V! Last night she even slept 4.5 hours straight, yay! But pumping sucks. Really really sucks. I keep trying the nursing thing, and she latches, but only for a second or two, then roots again. This continues until she just gives up and cries. :( But we keep trying. And Livi is so awesome with her :heart: She loves to hold her, change her, feed her, etc. She is so in love with her, and she's the one that gets V to smile most of the time. It's adorable.
It is a little before 2pm.....2 hours before I'll be laying in the hospital getting induced. WOW! Mike is a nervous wreck about it, lol, but surprisingly I've been pretty calm. I guess my time will come though, I'm sure of it. But I've been in a lot of pain today with baby V being so low..it's like bone on bone pain, ouch! And she is constantly trying to lay sideways so I look like I swallowed a rather large bone heehee. So I am ecstatic to go and have her come! SO Excited!!!!! I'm really hoping the cervadil works wonders and she comes out tonight :) Mike is on his way home now, we have to go and drop Livi off at Nana's, then head on down to the hospital. Wish us luck!!!
Yes I understand it's August, but this weather is unbearable!!! It's SO hot and muggy I just want to melt into a huge Shell puddle! Steve and Mike went golfing today while I watched the girls, and then we're going over to swim this afternoon. Yay for cool waters!!
