Jasmine had her doctor's appointment today. He said she should be absolutely fine and that her hand is healing extremely well. I'll be glad when we're done with the medication. She cries when she has to take it half the time and begs not to take it. It's hard to explain to a 3 year old why they have to take nasty tasting stuff. And it will be a miracle if none of us get sick after being in the germ factory so many times during cold and flu season. I think that's why the doctor isn't having Evan come back till March, to avoid as many germs as possible. I know Jasmine was in the office for shots every month for the first several months. Evan went a few days after he was born, a week after he was born and then won't be back until three months.
My pregnancy weight is coming off faster this time than it did with Jasmine. I've lost 20lbs. in two weeks. Ten of that came off immediately after he was born. I'll probably start working out again over the weekend. I'm supposed to wait 2-3 weeks after he's born before I do anything that would strain my muscles and I want to play it safe so I don't start bleeding badly. I'm not doing anything to my ab muscles until between 4-6 weeks, again just to play it safe. I'm ready to play some dance dance revolution. I haven't gotten to play with my Christmas gift except for the one time (very carefully at nine months pregnant!). Even though I've been tired and a little cranky from being woken up so often, it's still better than being pregnant. I was miserable those last three months. When I was pregnant with Jasmine, I didn't have much discomfort at all the entire nine months except for a little bit in month seven and that was just in my feet. It was such a relief to my body when he was born. On top of the physical pain I was feeling, I was also becoming very depressed the last two months. I had two weeks where I only changed out of my pajamas two days. I didn't have any motivation to do anything. Within an hour of Evan's birth, I had started taking my anti-depressants again. It was only a matter of days before I felt like me again. That too, was a relief, a big one.
