3 weeks old

Wow.... it's only been 3 weeks? Geeze, feels like no time at all and also forever at the same time. Weird.

Still though, one more week and she'll be a month old O_O... good lord a month goes by quickly!

Hmmm, what's been going on.

Not sure what is going on with Zoe and her sleeping right now.
She'll drift off to sleep and then a minute later will wake up. Most of the time if we're still holding her, she'll drift back off to sleep, wake a few more times until finally going to sleep. But if she's been laid down or some of the times when we're holding her, she'll wake up crying.

She's been doing this the past 2 days. I know she has to be so tired from it b/c I can't imagine she's getting good rest from waking like that constantly.

She seems to have her night time schedule down... at least for now. She wakes up around 3am, usually goes right back to sleep after eating, wakes again around 6am. Stays up a little bit, usually back in bed before 7, then sleeps until 9.
I can't wait for her to sleep through the night, but I can't really complain too much about this arrangement though. I'm usually not left feeling too tired each time she wakes so yay for that.
Worried about her 3am time though. Had a slight problem last night. I'll change her, feed her, hold her until I'm sure she's ready to go back to sleep and then put her in her bassinet and go pump after.
I did that last night and she started to fuss and woke DH up. DH was only up for 5mins and went right back to sleep lol, but still, it made me feel bad that she couldn't get back to sleep without fussing and that it woke him up. SIGH *shrugs* We'll see what happens tonight.

I'm still pretty weepy. Not depressed or anything like that thankfully, but I could cry at the drop of a hat at certain things.

I was down to 192 this morning. Not sure how that happened since I'm still eating like crud. Not sure how to remedy that right now since I have to rush to eat anything just in case she wakes up lol.
Want to go to the store, or get DH to go for me to pick up quick foods like ramen, sandwich stuff, more cereal etc. Things I can prepare and eat in a hurry. It's not going to be like this for forever. Already wanting to go back to eating like I did with the gestational diabetes (just not as strict w/ the carbs and sugar)... Still eating enough for the breastmilk supply but good stuff to help me lose weight as well or at least not gain anything.

Anywho, sounds like Zoe is finally settled... gotta go pump and maybe get in a few snoozes before she wakes up :)

Taken just an hour ago. She doesn't really interact with the toys and such yet though.
Frickin LOVE the onesie she's in. I know it's boyish, but it's adorable. Bought it at that consignment thing I went to before finding out the gender heh.
Think that's supposed to happen again soon.

Sorry, I might be annoying but just trying to help. Do you swaddle her for naps/sleeping? If not, that might help her stay asleep too. Congrats on making it first the few 3 weeks! :)

Her startle reflex is probably in full effect right now. Swaddling will definitely help, if she allows it. We swaddled until 6 months and then slowly weaned (one arm at a DD hated it in the beginning, but eventually grew to love it. Also sleeping at incline can help. DD slept in her swing (not moving) for the first 2 or 3 months. At this point it really is all about finding the perfect place to sleep.
