2 week check-up

Yep! I can't believe he's already 18 days old! I realized I had forgotten to blog about his check-up the other day, so I figured it's better late than never! lol Both Ryan and I had our check-ups the same day, so it was a pretty long day anyways.

Ryan has grown almost a whole inch since he was born! He's now 20 1/2 inches and weighs 8lbs 7 oz. He's supposed to go into a growth spurt by the end of his 3rd week, so he may get even bigger! lol He still has his chipmunk cheeks and double chin, but the neck roll is disappearing a little bit. :-( It was so cute! lol His doctor thinks that he might be lactose intolerant since he spits up a lot and gets so gassy that he'll arch his back and scream for about 20 minutes at a time. She gave me a couple of soy formula samples to try, so we'll see if it helps.

I'm doing pretty good too! My feet aren't as swollen as they were, although they're not completely healed yet. My incision is healing pretty nicely and I'm starting to regain some of the feeling in the nerves that the surgeons cut through in my abdomen. It feels weird! I've lost 15 lbs so far! Yay! Only bad news is my blood pressure is high for some weird reason, and they want me to take blood pressure meds. I think I'm going to hold off on that until I lose all the baby weight and see if it comes down some! Best of all...I actually have some energy and can move around without hurting as much! And I no longer need help! lol

That's about all the news I have so far! lol More to come I'm sure...
