3 Week Post- Appt

That's right, it's been 3 weeks since Samantha was born, which means it's been 3 weeks since I was nearly cut in half to deliver her ;)

Isn't it crazy how the weeks creep by when you're pregnant, but once the little one is here, it seems to be on triple fast forward?  Part of me feels like I was pregnant just yesterday and at the same time it feels like she has always been here with us.

The appointment started with the weight check-in.  My official weight at my last appointment was 164.6, which was a gain of 42.6 pounds from when I was 4 weeks pregnant.  My weight as of today was 138.4.  Not too shabby for only 3 weeks into it.  I wouldn't mind maintaining some of the weight and keeping it at 125-128, so really, only 10 more pounds to go lol. 

Next came in my awesome doctor who is still in awe that we went to full term and even then she had to be taken out!  He was so happy with our success!  And impressed with how big Samantha already is.  My incision is healing wonderfully and it looks like it has been longer than 3 weeks, he said he couldn't ask for better results.  He wasn't thrilled however, to learn that I have been really bad about following orders and already back driving, doing laundry, cleaning and all that jazz, so he told me to at least attempt to take it easy for the next 3 weeks.

I go back for my post-partum appointment on December 20 :)

Glad you had a good appointment.

I wish my doc would of told me to take it easy.lol
But i was feeling almost back to normal at just 1 week post partum. I contribute my fast healing to moving around so much, walking to and from my room to the nicu everyday. The nurses were all so shocked on how well i was doing, they said the more you move, the faster you heal. She said i should of told the other patients in the other rooms because they wouldn't hardly get out of bed. hahaha
