My two little boys are 11 days old today and still in the hospital. They are still doing great, it just seems like it takes forever for them to make any progress. The only thing they are both working on is eating and maintaining body temperature. I'm hoping they can come home this week sometime because they are both eating their bottles great and are being weaned out of the isolette (which controls the temperature) and into cribs. Last night they were even wearing clothes!
Since they are 38 weeks gestational age today, I think they will be able to be out anytime now. Their doctor is very conservative about feeding, which is a little frustrating. I am planning on breastfeeding them, and have been pumping every 3 hours since they were born. I don't know how people pump exclusively for so long sometimes, I already hate doing it! I am getting 6-7 ounces each time though, so our freezer is already full of milk because they have been eating very little amounts. They finally raised the amounts yesterday and they can now eat up to 50 mL.
My c-section recovery has been great. It is about 100 times better than my first one. I felt completely normal the day after the surgery and went home 3 days after it. I haven't had any pain at all and only have to take ibuprofen because for some weird reason my neck got really sore and stiff a few days afterwards. My legs are still swollen with fluids from the surgery, but I think they might be getting slightly better today. So I am very happy with that whole experience. I just wish my babies were home with me already...
Here are some pictures we took last night when we were visiting, aren't they little cuties!?
