Little Alison continues to do well. They have increased her fluids which have electrolytes, increased her feeding to 16 ml (she is eating every 3 hours) and she went under the lights for jaundice today. She looked so cute with her little eye mask on! I wish I would have taken my camera but I will bring it later.
I have been pumping at home and try to go in to nurse her at her feeding times. Alison is still figuring it out, but she is doing well. I have been supplementing with my milk after I try to nurse her and she does great with her mini bottle. The doctor told me yesterday that he thinks she will be there for 5-10 days (I think from her birth date), so hopefully that means she will get to come home next week towards the end of the week possibly!
I am feeling pretty well. I still have some cramping during the night, but Ibuprofen is enough to handle the pain. I'm trying hard to rest while at home. Justin comes with me to the hospital at night and Ali will open her eyes to look at him when he talks, it's so cute! He has been very helpful and didn't complain when I got up to pump last night in our room! My mom has been awesome, watching Molly so I can feed Ali as often as possible and getting me things I need from the store. My visiting teachers brought over a nice dinner last night, so I'm feeling pretty spoiled!
