Still here and doing better. Thank you for all the hugs and advice.
All of the littles have had a cold. Poor Z had a rough night about 2nights ago. Now she is sleeping better at night but the congestions seems to be a pain for a little while in the morning. We are nursing, nursing,nursing. I have added extra vitC and some eccinacea to my supplements in the hopes that it will help clear this cold out faster. It wouldn’t be so bad if she could breath through her mouth but since newborns don’t know how we have been sleeping proped up.
My days start earlier than they used to. I have been busy but it doesn’t bother me because I can do everything easier without my big belly.
Last night when we were getting the littles down for bed I was stretching out on my stomach and it felt wonderful!! Then there is the ease of bending down now. Tasks just don’t overwhelm me like they did those last weeks of pregnancy.
I have had wonderful help this time. I had two friends come in the first two weeks to do post-partum doula work. That was fantastic. We had several meals from Jorry’s work family that were awesome. My friend Pam has had my girls over to her house,made a meal and washed my comforter in her washer for me. Jorry’s parents came the Sat. after Z was born and brought venison,fresh veggies and a wonderful home made apple pie. Then his Grandmother just came Tues- yesterday. She made home made bread, cleaned my kitchen,let me nap and made a wonderful meal for us on Wed. night. Today a friend from Indy is bringing another meal. Sunday my mom comes in for a week and hopefully we will get to put a few more things in the freezer.
Z is back to sleep now so I will end here. I need to get diapers going and the dishewasher unloaded.
I’ll have more pictures in a few days.
