Catching Up

Last Friday I had my 6-week post partum check up. I feared having to get checked, but it wasn't bad at all. I'm all healed and ready to carry on with normal activities. Yippie!! (Too bad I have a terrible cold...some activities are having to wait ;) ). I'm not quite down to pre-pregnancy weight, but I think that once I get back into exercising, it won't be long. I've been in my pre-preg jeans for weeks now, so I just need to work on this muffin top!

We also went to the RE's office last week to visit Dr. L and the nurses. They were so excited to see the little guy. The office held a Baby Party on Thursday night to celebrate all the successes, but we didn't make it because of me being under the weather. I was pretty bummed. It would have been nice to talk to other women/couples in the area who understood the struggles and feelings of IF. Next time...

My sister has moved back to the east coast from Oregon! She's in town until this weekend when she heads to South Carolina to start her new job. We've had so much fun hanging out at my parents' house, eating delicious meals, and shopping. Hampton has been quite the trooper throughout all the girl time!

My little monkey has had a rough last couple of days. He has been so fussy and not napping well (even when laying on someone). I don't know if it's the colic, a growth spurt, possibly reflux, or just a bad day. Has anyone seen my baby's manual?! I have started cutting things out of my diet (dairy, gassy vegetables, spicy foods, red tomato sauces). I was already trying to avoid most of these, but by cutting them out, the doctor said we could start narrowing down the problem. It is going to be no fun, but I will do anything to help this little guy out. It is just so pitiful.

All in all, thing are going well. Each day is a new challenge, but we are just holding on tight and enjoying the ride!!
