FB post from this morning:
Post-pregnancy is the only time you can get on the scale a day later, having lost 12 lbs. and not think ‘ what the hell happened’… Just shy of 20 lbs on (thanks for the cobbler and cookies mom), and 17 lbs. back off in under a week… on the other hand, my shape seems to be stuck on ’round’….
Today Matthew needed to run and get some things, and coincidentally a church friend said she could stop by and keep an eye on me for an hour, AND our babysitter decided to drop by and say hi, too. Matthew took Casey with him and the big kids played with the babysitter while my friend and I chatted. It was tiring, but awesome to have both the company and someone to watch out for me.
I was released with high blood pressure and they are worried that I might have some issues with it if I’m not careful. Most of my swelling has gone down and I don’t have any other symptoms, so I’m hoping this is going to be okay, but again, nice to have someone around ‘just in case’… it’s certainly not easy to keep your cool with a sore gut (still no higher class meds), a rammy toddler, 2 kids that don’t WANT to get along, and a newborn, just for the fun of keeping things interesting.
Lovely when everyone went home, as well. We hadn’t been expecting the girls back from the in-laws so early in the day, but that’s okay, we are happy to be a family of 6!?!?! in the house finally!
