Elizabeth will be 3 weeks old on Wednesday. We had her doctor appointment today and she’s doing great! She already weighs 8 pounds 5.5 ounces. So that means that in 3 weeks, she has gained 1 pound 4.5 ounces. I’m so proud of our baby girl. We are now just formula feeding, which she is doing good with. She’s a very happy baby. Her baby acne is driving me crazy. Our doctor said we could try two things, but it would just go away on its own over time. She told us we could try giving her a bath everyday and drying the places out, or using aquaphor on them. So I got some aquaphor baby and I’m going to try that first.
I also had a doctor’s appointment today, but it was an eye exam. Which I was so happy about, because I haven’t had contacts since I’ve been pregnant because my eyes were drying out so bad. If you know me, you know I absolutely hate wearing glasses. Before, I only had an astigmatism in my left eye, now I have it in my right eye, too. Yay. My contacts have been ordered, and I also ordered some more glasses(cheapest I could get, Lol.). They are supposed to be in next week, I’m so excited! They gave me a pair of contacts to wear until then, so bye bye glasses! It does feel weird to have contacts in again, though.
In two weeks, we have our month appointment with the doctor. I’m getting my birth control put in and I’m super nervous. I’ve only ever used two types of birth control: the pill and the depo shot. Both of which I did not want to do again because I didn’t like them.. So we’re going with the copper IUD. I’ve heard really good things about it, so let’s hope for the best!
I’ve lost 20 pounds since I’ve had Elizabeth! I’m so proud of myself. I’m already in my old jeans(I only had one pair though). Luckily, WalMart has their jeans right now for $7.78. I love them, they are so comfortable. It feels good to be able to wear anything now and be comfortable. I do miss being pregnant every now and then, but having my baby girl in my arms is so much better.
