Congratulations @hellohelloagain and happy birthday Baby F!
@LouiseBelcher from everything you've ever said about your daughter, she is bright and capable and has a big heart. With regards to children, Papa has shown that he is responsible and caring, which are huge plusses! Sending happy thoughts and warm wishes to y'all.
@hellohelloagain F is an absolute doll and I’m in love with her name. Congrats!
Congratulations @hellohelloagain!!! She is a sweet pea
@hellohelloagain She’s absolutely beautiful!
@LouiseBelcher This is big news! You have a right to not know how to feel at first, but echoing the other chickens that your daughter seems to be smart and responsible. You raised her well, and she’s going to be an excellent mom.
@hellohelloagain Congratulations! Welcome to the world sweet baby F
Congratulations!! Happy birthday F
Happy birthday Baby F!
@hellohelloagain - Baby F is so cute!!
I know that my daughter will be a good mom. I think I'm not ready to be a grandma. I can't even get my own shit together half the time.
@LouiseBelcher, if you’ve raised a daughter that you believe will be a good mom, then the hardest part of grand parenting is already done.
So discharged a day early because we "were doing so well" which I was fine with because I hate being in the hospital.
TMI warning ahead:
I am kind of worried about this blood clot thing though. I experienced a couple small ones while in the hospital and was told it was normal, I should only really worry about things larger than a golf ball. Got home today and after a few hours passed a really large clot...I literally felt it coming out, it was unnerving. Idk if it was larger than a golf ball or not... what I could see in the toilet was maybe the size of a quarter?
The internet is making it sound like this is normal, but I'm obviously still worried about it.
Clots are definitely normal! I felt a lot of big clots during/after my miscarriages and yeah, it’s pretty gross. I wouldn’t worry about the one you described unless there’s more big ones or your bleeding gets worse. There’s a lot of lining your body will shed, and with the cramping that shrinks your uterus back down, clots are a normal part of that process.
Glad to hear you got to go home already! Hope you and babes are doing well
@hellohelloagain there were a few times I felt what I thought were huge clots and they really weren’t. MD said anything the size of an egg or bigger, and you would definitely notice the size.
I’m glad you and F are doing well!
Absolutely totally fine and normal! Welcome home!
Totally totally normal! Glad you're home!
@LouiseBelcher the beauty of grandparenting seems to be that you don't have to get your shit together. We normally see my parents a couple of times a week. I drive the boys over, we hang out for a few hours, I take them home. S usually stays the night with them on Saturdays and he gets to do fun things like control the remote and eat cookies. Sometimes I get crafts or something for him and my mom to do together.
Those can be really scary @hellohelloagain but echoing that it's normal. Glad you are home!
So glad you guys are home! @hellohelloagain
Welcome home @hellohelloagain!
I know I’ll never sleep again but fuck I am tired. I wake up to pee and just lay there. Ugh.
I feel that struggle. It takes me an hour to get comfortable and right when I do I have to fucking pee again. Sleep? I don’t know her.
@hellohelloagain liking for being home! It is so much more comfortable to be back in your own space.
This is true. Lately C has been talking about wanting a small travel trailer for camping (after tent camping- he's a wimp, lol). I found some that really only sleep 2 and he said "what about when we have our grandkids?" So clearly he's thinking we will be the camping, boating, having fun sort of grandparents... That's fine with me- mine were the summer bible camp sort and that was NOT fun.
Yesterday my daughter said she was so glad to know that she won't have to even ask us to get our flu shots and other boosters before seeing the baby. I guess they've already had that discussion and there are concerns with other family. I'm glad she's sticking to her guns though.
I'm warming up to this idea and kind of wanting to start buying baby things....
