Six Weeks

Yesterday I had my six week postpartum checkup. I am off all blood pressure medication, my blood pressure is back to where it should be, and I am released to normal activity. YAY! I am so excited! I have my BOB and I am not afraid to use it! I am very much looking forward to getting back to my pre-pregnancy shape...and maybe even shedding a few additional pounds!

Since we didn't get any pictures in the hospital, we brought Ruby along to the appointment so we could get a shot of midwife and baby and of course so Sharon could see Ruby out of the NICU doing so well and so Dee (Sharon's nurse) could meet her.

I really can't say enough about Sharon. She was so great through this whole process. She new exactly what kind of labor and delivery Dan and I were planning and preparing for and was extremely understanding and encouraging when it all went to crap.

It will be strange not to see these ladies on a regular basis anymore. But we will meet again - hopefully in a couple years :)

It's so great that you made this milestone! I'm glad you're healthy and happy! Maybe I can join you on a walk one of these days!

I'm glad you got pictures of the people that meant so much to you. Yay for getting back to normal!

Yay!! I'm thinking about training for a 5k sometime this summer. I love a workout buddy :)

Hooray for getting a clean bill of health! You sure went through a lot. I have a running schedule in the making, once the baby is born and I am recovered. Maybe we could compare notes sometime. I can't wait to not feel fat anymore.

I loved my midwives too(I had 5 at the practice I went to), and I'm glad that yours made your labor (even though it wasn't what you planned on or wanted) feel comfortable. Having a baby is the craziest thing!

PS. Where did you end up getting your cloth diapers? I haven't ever seen any that look like that. You'll have to let me know what you like/dislike about them.

Ruby is sooooo cute! How fun and sharon looks great too. She helped us so much too. WE LOVE THE BOB!!! I use it on a daily basis and walks or runs are the best way to get baby a nap and mommy some workout time. I would so be on that Santa Fe trail with you if i still lived there. Enjoy this precious time with Ruby they change soooo fast.
