New Name and Other Fun Stuff

Actually there isn't much fun stuff but oh well. We did have a little girl that slept from 10:30-5:30 Saturday night. I actually woke up around 3 and pumped because I was so engorged and got almost 7oz. I haven't been pumping that regular but I am going to start trying to pump at least once a day and freeze most but leave some in the fridge so Matt can feed her or make it easier to feed her when we are out and about.

We went back to the doctor today for one more blood draw to check her bilirubin levels. He did decide with this blood draw he was going to check her liver enzymes as well. He doesn't think anything is wrong with her liver but then we can rule it out for sure. Her level was down last Monday so as long as it goes down again tomorrow we are done with the blood draws. I am really interested in seeing how much she gained in a week. When we left the hospital for the first time she weighed 7lbs 9oz. From there she has gone to 7lbs 13.5oz to 8lbs 3oz and last week she was 8lbs 8oz. We were almost back to birth weight. The doctor said she should be above her birth weight by this next one. She should of been there by her last appointment but he said some take a bit longer than others.s  Today she was 9lbs even. She also measured at 22 inches. More importantly though, her levels were down and her enzymes looked good.

Okay now to the new name. I actually wanted to change the url of my blog but I'm not sure how. Can anyone help me to make sure that all my followers can find it? A big reason for wanting to change the name is that even though I am still on this journey through weight loss but right now it is more about eating right so I can continue to provide for Reagan. I will say though since the day I had her I have lost 32 pounds. Still a long long way to go but it is a start. Obviously, I am still dealing with PCOS and I will be dealing with it for the rest of my life. For now though, it is not at the forefront of my journey. Being a new mom is going to be an amazing, terrifying, flying by the seat of my pants at times but wouldn't trade if for the world journey.

The former infertile deserves a post of its own, to tackle another day.


  1. So glad that one obstacle turned into a miracle! I can't wait to hear all about motherhood!

  3. You have a very impressively sleepy little girl! I'm so glad she's gaining weight and doing well.
