<blockquote><b>Quoting JekkaLynn:</b>" I asked how bad my tear was and they said, "Oh, it isn't bad...Then 4 times they had to add more freezing, ...

I think it might depend on how deep the cuts are? Like there are different levels.



I had to have a lot of stitches with my first and it took them quite a bit of time to stitch me up. But none of the tears were very deep so it healed up pretty quickly.



How are you and baby doing?

I am doing way better this time with my recovery then I did recovering from my DD's birth. I'm uncomfortable today cause my milk came in overnight but it isn't as bad as when it did when I had my DD. My son Remington a.k.a. Remy is doing fine. He is a tiny bit yellow today so we have him in the sun and I will make sure to have them check it when we go to see the doctor later today. He is a slow starter for nursing. He will go for 4 hours between feedings. He will be awake for most of that time but refuses to take the breast.

Good to hear you are both doing well! My daughter was bottle fed but she didnt take too much at first. She was very small though (5 lbs 3 oz at birth and down to 4 lbs 10 oz when we went home!). We just figured she wasnt hingry because she ate fine when she did eat and gained weight pretty quickly.



I LOVE his name btw! I met a Remington at work the other day and just thought it was awesome!

I have always wanted a son named Remington and after being on bedrest most of my first pregnancy thought it would never happen. We decided to try for a second while our DD was still young so that if we did have 2 they would be close together and I was able to work the first half the pregnancy at a horse barn. At 18 weeks I got kicked in the stomach by a horse. I managed to twist as he struck out at me and so it JUST missed the baby. We had already been thinking of using Patrick for a second name if it was a boy. When I walked away from being attacked and kicked in the stomach by a horse at 18 weeks pregnant with no harm to baby we took it as a sign that baby needed a lucky Irish middle name :P
