3 Weeks Postpartum

Just quickly signing in to say hello. I am shattered - totally exhausted. The baby is doing great but is not a very good sleeper and pretty darn fussy if not on the boob or being rocked. It is very difficult managing him and the 5 year old. Still, grateful for the outcome and on a good note, breastfeeding has gone very well this time. Reed has grown 1.5 inches in the past 3 weeks and gaining around an ounce a day.

Will try to pop in now and then, and also add some final thoughts and a summary. Many folks ask what I did differently this time (what I took, etc) so at some point I will try to post a summary for anyone that stumbles across the blog. Next year I'd really like to get involved with support/fundraising for preeclampsia awareness, so I won't be going away.

Take care and my prayers and best wishes to all those expecting after preeclampsia,



  1. Thanks for the update! Sorry to hear that you are not getting sleep.. It is so difficult to function on little sleep. I remember thinking that I could not imagine how I would survive if I had an older one to look after! Take care of yourself. Remember to ask for help if you have anyone that can even give you a few moments. Looking forward to your summary.
    You continue to be an inspiration to me.
