Gage is doing great, he is huge lol. He will be 6 weeks on Tuesday! His 4 week check up he was 10 1/2 lbs. this morning I stepped on the scale with and without him and he is close to 11 lbs 9 ozs! He is pushing himself up by his arms in tummy time already, but has been lifting his head since the night he was born!
Bella is doing well, but she did contract a staff infection on her shoulder somehow. the Dr has her on oral and topical antibiotics and it seems to be healing very quickly. At her two week appointment, she had just barely passed her birth weight of 6 lbs 12 ozs. She weighed 6 lbs 14 ozs. She is going through a massive growth spurt right now, though. Child can't stop eating!
AFM - I'm feeling pretty good but I'm still bleeding more than I'd like for two and a half weeks out (sorry for TMI). I'm going to call my OB tomorrow just to make sure it's okay. I'm also having some lactation issues. I just don't think I'm producing much. We've been supplelementing with formula which I think is both keeping her from starving and exacerbating the problem. So, I'm going to call a lactation consultant tomorrow too.
I hope the LC can help Angela, we had to see one too because Gage has a slight tongue tie. It's slight enough that as long as he is gaining they won't cut it. It did cause my nipples to crack and bleed and I had to turn to nipple shields, but now we are having an issue weaning off of those but I'm not too concerned about it!
No, no names yet. We're starting a list, but didn't want to think too much about it until we knew if it's a boy or girl. Our plan is to narrow it down, and maybe even come up with our favorite, but not decide for sure until the baby is born.
