We're ticking along... almost three weeks post partum!! Hard to believe.
Kayah is awful. Typical but draining me empty. Tai will be going to Vancouver on vacation for a few weeks and I'll lose my spare set of hands
. I don't want to drain her either, so I'm glad she is going.
I feel like all I've done is nurse for the entire time. But basically that *is* all I've done. Jonas is passed his birth weight finally and still so tiny. I don't remember it being like this with Kayah.
Anyone want to be in my NAK (nursing at keyboard) support group? Lol.
Oh, and my hubby bought a 1973 Volkswagen Bus last week. So we took it camping this weekend, hottest weekend on record in a few years, with no air conditioning, in tents, no shade... it was ok, the nights were nice but the travel and the days were brutal and hot. And the starter went on the bus so we were pushing it to get it started everywhere we went.
Anyway, it's been wonderful otherwise. I feel great, I still can't poop like a normal person but I don't even care. Being bloated really isn't awful, except for the nausea/fullness factor and the pain (god, it all seems to minor compared to even MILD hyperemesis).
I did my post partum look-back - and really the nausea was the worst part of HG this time. I was able to survive it with the meds through the worst of it, and lots of skilled "eating, drinking, etc" through the rest of it. I guess I figured out what made me sick and avoided those things, nibbled on whatever I could, and in general avoided movement other than the basics. I know it wouldn't work for everyone, though.
