6 week post-partum visit


I had my follow-up appointment with my OB today, which concluded my pregnancy care. I can't believe it has been six weeks already.

I was fortunate to have no complications after delivery or during recovery. The only thing that has been problematic actually started today (good timing, right?) I have a plugged duct. Half of my right boob feels like a rock; no fun at all. Andplusalso it hurts like a beotch. I have to massage it and apply warm compresses, and hopefully it will go away soon.

I am very excited to be able to take baths again! I took them almost daily throughout my 2nd and 3rd Trimesters to relax. I think I'll take Carina in the tub with me and pray that she loves it, too (and that she doesn't poop on me).

Oh, and how could I forget, I am happy to announce that we have an all clear, if you know what I mean... ;)

I had my visit today too- how are our babies already 6 weeks old?!?!

If I could PIP the doggy style stick people, I so would. I'm sorry about the blocked duct... but I'm glad you got the all clear. :)

I must be a prude, but I don't understand the Brown Chicken, Brown Cow thing?

Shannon, my favorite definition comes from Urban Dictionary:

An onomatopaeic imitation of the guitar riff commonly heard in 1970's porn movies.

Isn't it insane how you are so tied to your OB office for the better part of a year and then you are all of a sudden set loose?

I can't believe it's been 6 weeks already!!! Wow, how time flies! Pretty soon my baby girl will be here. So glad i can read your blog to prepare and get ideas! ;)

Chrissie, it is crazy! Lucky for me that my OB is also Carina's doctor, so I still get to see him :)
