2 Weeks!

As of yesterday(it's officially after midnight), Ava is two weeks old! Good Lord, time passes quickly!

It was my two-week post op visit, and Dr R removed my steri-strips, leaving nothing on my incision. It. Looks. Great. I was shocked by how well it healed and how very unobtrusive it already is! Yay! While my incision no longer hurts, my abdomen is still quite tender, thanks to the internal incision and stitching. He said it would take a while for those to fully absorb, so I guess it's to be expected. I've also lost somewhere in the ballpark of 21-22lbs. Yay! It seems to be slowing, though, which has me worried. Time to start watching my intake, I suppose.

Ava is currently nursing, hence why I'm up blogging at 12:45am, and she's still a champ! Not sure her weight now since we aren't seeing her ped again for a couple weeks, but I know she's growing and gaining well :)

Ok - she's finished so I am too. Nighty night!


  1. How can you type while nursing? My little girl likes to fall asleep so I have to keep waking her up! :)

  2. Good for you hun, and remember, you don't wanna lose weight too fast or it'll come back when you quit nursing.

    Besides, you can already fit into your pre-pregnancy jeans...I can't, thanks to a lot of loose skin and some weight from bouncing around due to the two months I spent unable to eat after.

  3. Also, if you are looking into BC, now is the time to look into it...I am a fan of the non-hormonal IUD's...obviously due to my liver issues I cannot have hormonals ever again, but the hormonal ones usually lead to weight gain anyway.

    So when you're all healed up at 6 weeks you prolly wanna look into it.
