Here is baby girl, in her girly car seat. After we answered some health/family questions, we stripped Maddie down to her diaper and took her out to the hall to be weighed and measured.
Maddie weighed 7 pounds, 6.6 ounces at birth, and her weight had dropped to 6 pounds, 15 ounces in the hospital. At her appointment, her weight was back up to 7 pounds, 7 ounces, so we were happy that she is gaining weight and eating well.
Getting measured. She had grown a quarter of an inch - 20 1/2 inches.
Having her head measured.
Having her temperature taken.
Checking for jaundice.
Because of all the scheduling changes, we ended up seeing a different pediatrician than we normally see, but he was nice. He checked her out and told us that everything is perfect.
We are so thankful for our healthy girl! I am thankful to be continuing to get better as well. I had another doctor appointment this past week, and my blood pressure is getting better. I was able to drop my second medication completely, and for the next few weeks, I am going to be able to just call my doctor with my blood pressure readings instead of going in for appointments. He will make any adjustments over the phone. I also lost 2 more pounds in the past week. I was surprised about that since nursing makes me so, so hungry, but I was happy to be continuing to lose weight. Everything is moving along in the right direction, and we are very thankful!
