This morning I had my post partum check up at the ob/gyn office. I had scheduled it at 9:30am, thinking that I would have plenty of time after dropping Mason off at school. Anderson and I made It with 15 minutes to spare, but I hadn't factored in feeding time for Anderson so he was pretty cranky.
Fortunately I was able to feed him while still in the exam room since the actual examination only took a few minutes.
weight this morning - 116 pounds (still up 8 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight. I blame the Dairy Queen blizzard I had last night)
they checked my blood pressure and did a hemoglobin finger prick and then had the doctor check me out "down there." he said my stitches were healed and that I looked fine and "see you in a year."
after going to so many appointments since last June it was nice to know that I wouldn't have to go back to that office for a year ... assuming I don't have any separate issues.
I can't believe it's been 6 weeks (tomorrow) since giving birth to Anderson. I'm still not sleeping great (obviously), still eating way too many desserts, slowly increasing my fitness routine, and grade myself overall at an 85%. I'm grouchy/cranky more often than not, and find myself more down than usual. Duh ... all emotions that will go away once more time has passed.
In the meantime I'll keep doing what I'm doing and trying to stay afloat ... being responsible for a new little person is hard work!
