Two Week Update

Baby Life

Thank you all for your sweet comments and congratulations! We sure are proud parents 🙂


As you can imagine, there’s been a lot to adjust to in the past two weeks. I was surprised by how long the recovery took – I wasn’t expecting the nausea and intense pelvic pain. But, at the two week mark, I’m finally starting to feel like myself. We were beginning to get into a routine. However, Emerson had to have a procedure done for a tongue tie and a lip tie, so that’s set us back a bit this week. I can’t stand to see her in pain! She’s super snuggly and becoming more alert every day.


My parents were in town last week and they were such a big help, letting Matt and me sleep from 6 to 9 AM each morning, keeping our house clean, and feeding us! We are on our own now, but my sister will be here next week when Matt goes back to work.


I intend to post Emerson’s birth story here at some point. I hope all is well with you guys!

    The recovery is for sure a weird thing. Remember to be gentle to yourself every single day. She is two weeks old at being on Earth and you are a two week old mama!

    She is adorable! She has changed so much already. It sounds like you and Matt are doing a great job. Things will continue to get easier. 🙂

    Adorable! Don’t rush yourself on the recovery– listening to your body and taking it easy in the early days is, as my mom says, “money in the bank”. My recovery with my second daughter was much easier than my first , so i felt like I was back to normal by week 2!and over did it and got mastis
    at week 3.
    Rest, eat, hydrate, nurse whenever she wants and don’t worry about a routine. It will come soon enough. Newborn snuggles are the best. Can’t wait to hear more.

    She’s filled out so much already! Great work! Ah, yes, the recovery. It took me quite a bit longer than 2 weeks to start feeling back to normal! Courtney at STSL summed it up perfectly 🙂
