The only thing I am concerned about now is possible tendonitis in my thumbs. It's called De Quervian's tendosynovitis or "Mommy Wrist." I had a touch of this in grad school during finals from writing so much and also when I was housepainting alot. But that was self limiting because I could stop writing or painting so much, but I can't stop taking care of my baby and he is only going to get heavier! I am going to see the orthorpedic doc on Monday to nip it in the bud. Maybe get a cortisone shot.
I had a bout of Mastitis a week ago. Was not too painful, but just felt awful, like I had the flu. It went away very quickly when I started antibiotics. I had my 6 week check up on Monday and my doctor says my incision looks great. I am still about 15 lbs over my prepregnancy weight.
Winn is sleeping 5-6 solid hours during the night. I usually get him down by midnight and he sleeps until 5. He sleeps alot during the day, so I feel like I should feel more rested and accomplish more. I have been watching lots of Olympics. pretty much od'd on it. no more volleyball and water polo!
Yesterday was my first time back on my yoga mat. It felt so good to stretch out, though I am somewhat limited because of the tendonitis. It feels strange to be able to lay on my belly again, though now my boobs are in the way.
Winn is cooing and smiling more. He has discovered his hands and is now able to entertain himself a bit. He has still not made the transition to sleeping in his crib from his swing at night. I think I will work on that this week. My husband and I are still in disbelief that we have a real live baby in our possession. This time last year, he was a little frozen embie and I was coming down off a hormonal rollercoaster after a retrieval. I turned 36 last week. We celebrated by going out to eat for lunch and dinner and Winn was so good on my birthday - let me sleep in and hardly cried all day. It was exactly how I wanted to spend my 36th birthday.
Congrats to Jen on her BFP! and to Krista on the arrival of her son!
This time last year
Love this onesie from my husband's friend
Morning of my 36th birthday - can you see how freaking engorged I am?
