I'm home, I'm HOME!

Praise the Lord!  I am home!!!  I got to come home this afternoon and I've been resting all day.  They took the drain out this morning and can I say that hurt like heck!?!?!?!  It was the weirdest, grossest feeling in the world.  It still makes my stomach roll every time I think about it.  Anywho, I'm home, home, home.  Nathan got to nurse for the first time since Sunday and can I say that I just fell in love with him all over again and it was like nursing him for the first time.  Amazing!  Zoey was so happy to see me she hopped right on the couch (and me, OUCH!) and sucked her sippy and played with my ear (I'm seriously, no lie, her "lovey").  Jon Kent was glad to see me too because he got that honest, huge smile on his face but he was trying to hide it because he is such a big boy.  Anyway, I'm still in some pain but managing.  I'm taking fenugreek 3 pills, 3 times a day until I can see an increase in my milk supply.  Until then we will nurse and then he will get an extra 2 ounces of breastmilk or formula.  I'm hoping within the next week things will be back to normal.  Who knew being "normal" was so great!?!?!?  Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes!!

Oh SO glad to see your home again and doing ok!  I kept thinking of your darling little babies without their mommy there for them :(  Your milk will get back to normal in no time :)

I'm so glad you're home and resting :)
nothing better than your own pillow and knowing what the kids are up to.

I just thought of this and you may already do it...a heating pad or warm compress helped me with the milk.  I'd put it on my chest and under my arms for about 5/10 minutes or so before I'd start pumping or nursing.  It seemed to help.

You take care doll~

Glad you're home and on your way to mending up completely! Nathan just nursing at the breast will be the BEST thing to get that supply up, follow his lead, if he doesn't seem hungry he's doing good! Oatmeal is a good and natural food and treat to eat and will help up your production!!

Welcome home!
