16 days postpartum

Too busy to blog!!! Still recovering from the C-section, I'm feeling much better though! My last two weeks were all about breastfeeding, changing diapers, sleeping, taking pain medicine, and eating well :) El7amdellah that my husband was there to take care of the girls and everything else!

Here is a summary of the last 16 days: I gave birth on Monday Oct 11th, and I stayed at the hospital until Thursday. Unfortunately baby Abdurahman lost 10% of his weight at the hospital. I had to check with the doctor on the next Monday. While his weight was okay, he had a high Jaundice which required a daily blood test for 4 days. I had to cease breastfeeding for few days and just give him formula. El7amdellah, this strategy worked with him well and we were able to control the Jaundice without any other treatment. I resumed breastfeeding as soon as he felt better. It was scary!

I also resumed my daily activities as my husband had to go back to work last Monday. It feels good to be back :)

Talking about getting back, I guess I need to get back in shape too!! I gained about 50 pound this pregnancy :(. I lost about 20 so far. I need to work on the other 30 in the coming few months without affecting my milk supply. It's going to be hard, I think!! :)


Baby Abdurahman is here :)

Hello there,
We were blessed on Monday October 11th 2010 at 8:35 AM with a baby boy. We named him Abdurahman. Alhamdulellah, things went smoothly, C-section was easy, and our baby boy is healthy :)


I miss you mom

أحن إلى خبز أمي
وقهوة أمي
ولمسةِ أمي

رحمك الله يا أمي
