Headline: Retired Surrogate Sits on Couch

Yep, it's that exciting today.  And I'm pleased that the blowing, cold SNOW is on the outside today and I have no where to go, no where to be!

Backing up a week...

March 14, 2011:  The birth went as smoothly as possible...  he was a big baby (biggest I birthed) at 9 lbs. 4 oz. and almost 21" long.  He was wedged in there and not coming out.  Good thing it was a scheduled c-section, let me tell you!  Kudos go to my doctor of 20 years for doing a fabulous job for all of us.

Milk production is 2-3 oz. total per pumping session (every 3-4 hours); finally back in bed and not sleeping upright on the couch.

Swelling in the ankles and elsewhere - still pretty sore...  internal muscles are hurting since yesterday at the incision site.  Too much running, I'm sure. 

Just a few more days of visiting with the Kleiven family before they head home to Norway and show off their newest bundle of joy!  We did it again...

  1. I'm so glad you got to rest the entire day, and you are right, it was a great day for it!

    Been thinking a lot today about how I don't think it could have gone any better for you and team Norway. How simply amazing of a journey for all involved!

    Thank you for the chance to meet sweet Emil, and see T & H again. I'm a lucky neighbor!
