Things are going pretty good here so far.
Boobs still aren't producing a lot of milk. Lucky if I get 2oz. Need to start pumping on more of a schedule to try to get my supply up.

We went and got Oren's birth certificate today. So fun? :P Why are government buildings, or at least the outside of them always so... so... dingy feeling. I dunno... just always feels like things are dirty to me for some reason. *shrugs*

Oren is doing well. His billiruben(sp?) number was at 11 so we were told we could take him off the light. Just put him in to some indirect sunlight for a little bit and it should all clear up on its own.
Also, he weighed in at 6lbs 15oz again, but they said the weekend office place's scale usually runs heavy so nothing to worry about b/c his weight didn't go up from that appointment to this one.

He's still wanting to eat 3oz each time he feeds. He's gotta fill out those cute chicken legs. OMG I squee every time I see them. They're just so cute and scrawny. I know people love them some baby chubby rolls, but his little chicken legs are just too cute to resist. I just want to nom on them a little. :P lol

I'm doing ok. Incision doesn't really hurt in the same way. It's more of a bad bruised feeling now along with my giant pooch. Legs are also feeling bruised but pretty sure that's just from the swelling which still hasn't gone away yet.
Also the last 2 days I've been getting headaches that do not want to go away. Very frustrating since I am taking pain meds that SHOULD be taking care of that.
Must be something hormonal or the lack of some good long sleep... or heck, maybe both.

Other than that though, I've been ok. Wish I could help out a bit more, but I keep having to remind myself that it's only been a week since the c-sec. I've picked Zoe up a few times b/c I forget and paid for it later with an extra sore incision area. Just feel bad that DH has to do pretty much everything.
While that is nice.. don't get me wrong lol... I'd still like to feel like I'm contributing a little more.

Anyway... nothing else really going on. It's DH's grandfather's birthday today. Think everyone is going to IHoP tonight for it. Looking forward to some delicious pancakes lol. Oren will of course be passed around which is fine.. just hope none of them are sick.

Have to do a little research on this expensive carpet cleaner we may be buying. It has really good reviews and was voted best last year... but I want to look up more on it before we commit so much money to getting it.

Have you talked with your doctor about the swelling and headaches? Sometimes you can get post baby preEclampsia. I can't remember for the life of me what it's called, but my SIL had it. Congrats on your beautiful boy!!
