One month

Guys, my baby is one month old today. Ok, it's not the 30th, but February doesn't have that and it has been four weeks since he arrived. I can't believe that it's been a month already...granted I'm so tired I'm sure I've lost time somewhere.

Things to remember: the way he arches his brows when he's trying to decide to give in to sleep or not. The way his stubbornness is showing up - Keiden fights sleep all the time, hence regular eyebrow arching. And lately his mommy hold me all the time phase - I'm sure it'll end and I'll miss it.

This baby business is tough

Man oh man do I miss hours of solid sleep. What makes it worse is that at night Keiden does have a long stretch of sleep. The problem is that I wake up at about the two and a half hour mark, and about every twenty minutes after that till he wakes at about the four hour mark 0_o. Clearly my body is trying to sabotage me.

Jerall does his best to help, but unless he somehow manages to grow a set of boobs there's not that much he can do besides burping and some walking to get K to sleep. I also find myself being all meh about breastfeeding. I don't hate it, but I don't like it. I could take it or leave it, but it's probably easier than a bottle&is free. The clinic nurse advised that I don't try expressing till about six weeks - it took awhile, a long while, for my milk to come in&I've had other feeding issues.

This raising a person business is tough...and it's the early, easy days 0_o. His needs right now are pretty simple. Although it doesn't stop me from wishing he came with status bars like a sim - that'd certainly make things a lot easier. The heat isn't helping matters much either; I go between worrying that he's too hot or getting cold for most of the day. Again we need status bars, someone work on science or magic to make it happen.

And now pictures of my second love :).

One week

It'll been one week of Keiden. For those who don't follow me on Twitter you missed the news. At our weekly visit last week our doctor said that my placenta had calcified dramatically since the week before - it ment that Keiden had to out.

So we went from still having time to having none. The entire day was surreal - not to mention hungry. The visit was at 09:00, & we got a 16:00 time for the c-section so I couldn't eat. It didn't seem as if if was happening even when we got to theatre & I had to get into position for the spinal.

My part went well, just a bout of low blood pressure - so he was out quickly. He however wasn't in such a good spot. He had his cord around his neck, which doc had missed because of the placenta thing. I got to see him for a minute & then he had to go. Jerall stayed with Keiden while they were finishing off with me.

I only got to see Keiden again at 18:00, which was not great at all. But, there he was all kinds of awesome.

C-section recovery is not a walk in the park, thank goodness for drugs. And a doctor who's all manage the pain with drugs. We've been home since Sunday and it's going ok. That said Keiden's lost weight since being discharged and I still haven't had my milk come in so that's not making for a good time. All in all though I have all kinds of good cuddles ;).

The numbers: Keiden Jay born 30th January 2014, weight 2.535kg, length 48.5cm.
