My weekly baby pump photos
It’s a month already? That also means my baby is a month old already! As much as I want him to grow fast and healthy – I want him to slow down a little bit. I want to hold my tiny baby as much as I can because I know I won’t be able to hold another one of my own.
It’s been a month! Let’s talk about my c-section scar. I still haven’t really taken a closer look at it because I am scared of it! I know its healing well because I haven’t felt any pain or itchiness. I do have my Hubby to look at it and he tells me how it looks and stuff.
I started taking my bubble bath after two and a half week after postpartum – which seems alright. I remember last time I had to wait six weeks because of natural birth. This time since it was c-section – nurse said it was okay to take baths.
Wanted to have my hair cut done before my delivery but didn’t have time – so this is after delivery
My bleeding stopped after the 11-12 day – which was weird because it’s supposed to last 6 weeks. Although the bleeding stopped – there’s still this yellowish-white discharge coming out every day. Once in awhile there’s blood.
Since I am Asian – you would have thought I’d follow the Chinese tradition. One month confinement and etc etc… I didn’t follow any last time except eating ginger vinegar. This time I try to not eat this or that due to my scar. I tried for two weeks which was a big fail. I did end up going out and taking the baby out after a few days.
My first bowl of ginger vinegar after 3 weeks postpartum
Basically everything went back to normal after I came home. I cooked, baked, cleaned, and etc. Since I didn’t feel pain at all – everything was all good. I didn’t feel tired at all too. I wonder why? I kept myself busy with just the regular to do(s).
I did drink lots of liquids! I made sure I had enough milk supply in me this time because I do want to start freezing milk. The more milk I freeze = the faster I can stop breastfeeding. I want my Munchkin to breastfed till 10 months old and the rest bottle fed with breast milk. By 10 months – I would want him to sleep in his own without needing to wake up in the middle of night for feeding (just like his brother).
As for my weight gain.. I am not sure how much I weight now (I need to buy a new scale). I do want to start hitting up the gym next month when Munchkin#2 is at school. I’m not too worried about my weight right now. My focuses are providing enough breast milk and keep myself healthy.
Took millions of pictures of myself & family already…
I have to say my c-section recovery was quite fast. I felt like I never undergo a surgery at all! I thought I’d be handicap for two weeks till two months of time. I was so ready to be bedridden for awhile because of the pain. But thank goodness for no pain!
I think that’s all the update for my first month of postpartum. Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!
Have an AWESOME day!!!
