The little piggies, Connor and Chloe, are breastfeeding like champs! Chad helped me tandem feed them tonight for the 7pm feeding. Connor fed for 30 minutes, Chloe fed for 15 minutes. They have both gotten the hang of breastfeeding, which makes it so much easier for me! And, now I only pump during the times that they are not breastfeeding.
We are getting closer and closer to bringing them home each day. The doctors say they are progressing great, too!
Connor was moved from the isolette into an open crib Wednesday night after his 7pm feeding. As long as he maintains his temperature, he will stay there! He's done well, with some extra bundling. Chloe will hopefully move into the open crib on Friday.
Connor's weight this morning was 4 pounds 12 ounces, one ounce above his birth weight. Chloe's weight was 3 pounds, 15.9 ounces, 0.1 ounce below her birth weight. Hopefully her weight will go up tomorrow with her good feedings!
I jumped on the scale tonight......I was curious how my weight was, as I wore a pair of pre-pregnancy pants today. I'm 4.5 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight! Not bad, is it?
I have my post-delivery OB appointment tomorrow. It will be interesting to see how my blood pressure is. It's been borderline high when I've checked it. My resting heart rate has also been elevated, so I'm hoping it's not related to blood loss issues. I'm going to ask to have my red blood count checked, just in case.
The babies and I have a photo session at 2pm on Friday. A photographer comes to the hospital, takes any poses you want, burns the pictures on a disc and you get the disc to print the pictures, all free of charge! You can't beat that! Now I think I'll be able to order announcement photos soon after receiving the disc!
I think that's it for now. I've been taking naps between feeding session, and it's helped a lot. I need to get ready for bed, then sleep before I pump at 11pm.
