|Milk Coma--Common Sighting after Nursing|
Potentially TMI topic: I am beginning to get concerned about this postpartum bleeding. It has been 20 days now and I am still bleeding bright red . It has tapered off, but not enough to get away with just a pantyliner. I am going to call the OB's office on Monday to schedule my 4 week check up appointment so I'll ask the nurse about it then. I have heard of some women bleeding for just a few days, others for over a month. Everything I've researched says if I am still bleeding, it should be pink or lighter, not bright red. Either way, this so makes up for not having a period for 9 months!
Apparently I'm the obsessive, irrational parent and Jesse is the apathetic, relaxed parent. Over the last three days I have diagnosed Jackson with a cold, reflux, GERD, and colic. Jesse and I both will google something, like spitting up through the nose, and only read the answers that support our extreme opinion. I really am trying to relax. I never thought I would be so uptight about my child, but it's scary not knowing what is normal and when I should stop freaking out.
Today was Jesse's last work day off before finishing out the school year (six more weeks before summer). We had made plans to go on the Greenway for a nice, long walk. Instead my oldest sister and her family came to visit, which was a pleasant surprise. I was tired from being up since 6 a.m. so Jackson and I took a two hour nap together in the bed. I swear, the child can sleep forever when he is cuddled up beside me. Lord help us when we try to transition him to the crib! We did manage to go on a long walk through the neighborhood before dinner. Then Jan and Jeff came to visit for a few hours this evening.
