Reply to "Breastfeeding"

Little Greeny, I have to say things are going pretty well now, or as well as I could expect. I had my csection March 3rd and it was a pretty rough go the first couple days. There was a mix up with my pain management in that it hurt so much to even talk let alone hold or even breastfeed my baby. We switched to formula and I was given stronger drugs to get things under control. The narcotics tend to cause constipation so that was a big issue in the beginning as well. But things are definitely getting better now. I haven't really gotten my appetite back though so I'm not eating much, makes the pouch function seem a bit better, and I'm still eating low residue. I'm still taking a stool softener and drinking prune juice to keep things moving, but it's working really well. I'm pumping to try and get some breast milk in combination with the formula and so far I don't think it has caused much in the way of dehydration. Although I don't have much milk so that could contribute. I do feel as if things are slowly normalizing with my body, which is a very nice feeling. Pregnancy was difficult with me feeling partially blocked the whole time. The tiny human makes it totally worth it though.

I hope you don't get another blockage, but you are almost there!
