Emmi turned 6 weeks on Friday 18th of May. My midwife came for her discharge visit to weigh her measure her and make sure we are doing okay, it seems so weird to be saying goodbye to her since shes been in my life since i was 5 weeks pregnant i saw her almost everyday since 33 weeks and now i wont be seeing her till baby number 2. Anyway she weighed Emmi and she was 8 pound 13! shes 54 cm shes 21.3 inches long, shes doing great, still breastfeeding on demand and sleeping almost completly through the night only waking up once to feed. My sister came on Thursday 17th of May from Australia and on Friday morning Emmi was smiling at her!!! we did some traveling to show my sister around the South Island of New Zealand and she loved it Emmi slept almost the entire trip she loves the car. Emmi had her jabs on Tuesday 22nd May and i almost cried! her cry made my heart sink and the way she looked at me was like "how dare you let them hurt me!" she only cried for a little bit after her first one then smiled at the nurse but was not happy about the second one and cried for a little more but after i feed her she was okay, the doctor checked her over afterwards and she is doing great! Wednesday 23rd May the plunket nurse came to do her visit so she was weighed again and she was 9 pound 2!!! she is growing like a mushroom! everyone is happy with how shes doing and im so happy breastfeeding is going well i was told id never breastfeed because i had flat nipples but we showed them it can be done! Im also donating my breastmilk i havent found anyone local yet but i have found a lady who has a 13 week old adopted daughter im going to donate to back in my home town when im on holiday so i should give her enough to feed her for a week (my milk supply is huge!).
As for me, im getting back into eating alot more raw foods, im not going 100% raw due to breastfeeding but im trying to get as close to it as i can, my current weight is 177 pounds im hoping to get back to 143 pounds but in no big hurry!
