I just want to say thanks for the prayers. You have no idea how efficacious these are, but I get such strength from them. The day began a bit shaky--I was a bit short on sleep--but the school day went relatively well and I am feeling more at peace with the crazy level of activity in my life.
I took my midwife's advice and weighed Gemma myself, using an infant scale made from a baby blanket and a fish scale from the hunting and fishing section of Wal-Mart. Gemma actually weighs over a pound more than what was indicated at the doctor's (they didn't have a baby scale and weighed me with and without Gemma to get her weight).
I also have been paying attention to her wet diapers and her nursing. I think that my milk may have really tapered off, so I am drinking like crazy and have ordered some Mother's Milk Tea.
Anyway, this post has taken 40 minutes due to the fact that I have a baby on me and I am not a very fast one-fingered typist. So off to bed now, to nurse and nurse and nurse.
Thanks again, cyber-friends...
