It's day 5 post birth and I'm finally getting the hang of things!
I am feeling a little bit better in the health department and can get around a little bit. The other night I had a good cry because I just can't do anything. I hear my babies cry and I see other people feed them and go to them when they need something and I can hardly stand up. But it's getting better! I feel a little bit like a tool for thinking that having major abdominal surgery would be easier than birth. Although, if you would have seen how hard it was to get Ever out of my body I know my body could never have done that on it's own.
I am just amazed every second by my babies. They are gorgeous! Everything about them is perfect. I am finally able to pump about an ounce of breast milk per feeding so they are getting half breast milk and half formula. I am continuing to spoil them with snuggles. People tell me not to let them sleep with me, but I can't help it! They're just too snugglable.
Last night was my first night that I really got to do everything. Every three hours I woke up to pump, then my mom would change Ocean and feed him and I would change Ever and feed her. I don't know what I would do without my mom! Hubby had to go back to work today and I really wanted him to get some sleep so he wasn't allowed to help last night. When the alarm would go off to pump it would be so hard to get up, but once I had one of the monkey's in my arms it was easy. Things are starting to run like clockwork and their first appointment is tomorrow!
