Doing OK

I've been doing ok since being discharged from the hospital. I got nearly no sleep on Friday night. I kept waking up every hour and there was a spot on my back that hurt SO badly! I tried everything...changing positions, cold pack, tylenol, and finally a hot pack. It was the hot pack that took away the pain, but I still couldn't sleep. Last night I did MUCH better! Slept all the way from approx 1am to 6:30am! I also have to make sure I keep my legs up...my right ankle is way swollen. I'm going to start wearing the compression stockings I got, and I need to consciously remember to keep it elevated. I never realized how uncomfortable swollen ankles are! It just feels so funny.

My mom came to visit last week and brought us a ton of baby clothes (including hand-me-downs from my sister and me). My mother-in-law also keeps sending us packages with clothes in it. Man, baby clothes are SOOOO cute! I'd take pictures of all of it, but it would require me to stand for a long period of time in order to show you everything. We also had all of our furniture delivered last week, so we actually have a nursery! How cool is that? Now I just need to get all of my clothes out of the nursery closet so I can fill it with baby clothes. :-)

I am happy that you are back from the hospital...I know that sleeping must be difficult (not that I have personal experience in this regard), but I hope that you are able to find your comfort zone.

Yes, baby clothes are beautiful and they have a particular smell - which I love.

Once on a whim, I told my SIL to save a particular baby frock for my baby...it is sadly making me tearful now.

Anyways, you have fun girl!

Okay, I voted and accidently got the gil-boy mixed up. I ment to put boy first and when I went back to make sure (as I was about to submit the second baby as a girl) I realized I put girl first, so I think she'll come out first now, she'll just have to be baby A now ::wink::

You actually had put the boy first and girl second, so I switched it around for you (with weights and lengths) so it would match who is coming out first. Baby A is the girl and she is most definitely going to be the first out. :-)

I am glad you are home!

I can't imagine how difficult is must be to just get comfortable, let alone sleep. Especially after finding out you are 4'11"!!

I do love baby clothes, especially booties. It is hard to imagine anything so small.
