Yesterday marked 40 weeks. Today M' is 2 weeks old. . .I'm so glad she came early. So far everything has been going well. She still seems pretty relaxed and has been sleeping pretty well. Tomorrow we have another trip to the doctor to make sure she is gaining weight. She has had no problems eating but at her one week appointment she was at 7 lbs. 10 oz. and here birth weight was 7 lbs. 15 oz. Basically we just have to show that she has been eating well and has gained and we then we won't have to go back again in a week. As for me, I'm feeling pretty good. I feel like I'm bouncing back much faster this time. I'm about 10 pounds away from what I started at when I first got pregnant with M'. . .more jiggly then 9 months ago. . .but I'll work on that later. We have been staying busy and trying to get the kids out to somewhere to stay busy. We have been hitting up the local mall playgrounds and the Chick-Fil-a playground. Its a little harder to get them worn out for nap time when it is so cold outside. I haven't been too tired since M' has been doing well sleeping at night. . .it has also been so helpful having my Mom here. I haven't really gotten a taste of being a mom of three since she has been here to help. . .I'll let you know how it is after she and everyone else leaves after Christmas. . .I'm preparing myself for total chaos for a while.
Intent and outcome are so rarely coincident.
