Recovery is going well. I'm sore today but am able to clean and reach down to the floor without much pain, just some soreness. I have some horrible bruises all along the bottom of my stomach where they had to pry her out. That's mainly the area I'm sore at now. Dang ginormous babies. I quit taking Percocet as of Saturday but then I pumped Sunday and had terrible cramps like I was having the worst period ever so I took another. Saturday we took Sophia in for her first little check up at 4 days old and she's lost quite a bit of weight, down to about 8lbs 3 oz so nearly a pound. She was a bit jaundiced too which I had noticed but it's gone now. Sunday we went to church and everyone had to get their peek at her. Poor Dominic thought we were never coming for him and we found him crying at the doorway waiting for us. I felt so awful! I explained to him to never think we would ever just forget him or leave him anywhere because we'd never do that. We loved him too much to forget about him. It was really heartbreaking to see him like that but we've had that happen many times with Alex.
Today I feel really good. I even packed the girls up this morning and ran to a friend's house for a few minutes. Not supposed to be driving but that's the reason I quit taking the Perc's over the weekend. I might even try laying flat tonight. We have a nice wedge pillow that I've been using plus putting other pillows on top so I'm laying down but like in a hospital bed. lol I hate getting down and then trying to get up especially getting up often with a baby. Makes me feel like I'm going to rip clean apart. I've tried to wear loose clothing the past week. I'm wearing maternity jeans today but they are killing my belly button. My legs/feet still look like I'm an elephant from all that fluid. Ahh the joys of a C-section. And can you believe Saturday walking in the hospital holding my sore back some lady in admissions had the nerve to ask if I was in labor? I polietely said "I just had her 4 days ago" pointing to Dave with the carrier. Ugh. I hope all this swelling starts to go away soon.
