Update

Thursday, May 14, 2009


Well, they're a little late in being posted, but there are actual 14 days out shots. I overlayed them with my 1 week pp pics and there is virtuall no change. I guess I wasn't expecting much, but a little something would have helped my spirits lol. {Sorry for the nasty clothes lines, oh well}. Tony's got the basement all ripped apart still so I haven't started walking yet . . . but i have started some push ups and lower body work.
Isaac went in last week to be circumsized. Poor guy. :( We elected to do it outside of the hospital due to cost. We were told that the hospital could have been anywhere from $800-1200 dollars and as most insurances do not cover them anymore it would have been completely out of pocket. I've now been told that was a high estimate, but since the hospital we delivered at is one of the most expensive in the Twin Cities according to mainstreetmedica, I'm sure we would have been close. All said and done it was $270 at the clinic.
Well after a week of healing . . . I wasn't too sure about it. Factor in that my Mom, who had two sons and has done 20+ years of day, said she's "never seen one like that," and you better believe I made a follow up visit. I'm no expert on penis(es) {lol what's the plural of penis?!} and have never seen a newborn's circumsion, so I don't want to screw him up straight off the bat! Thankfully all is well and he's just sporting a little edema, so i can stop worrying about him being made fun of in the locker room lol.
Oh and I just got a phone call from Karen at A Baby's Own Room that the crib is shipping today after manufacturing delays at Child Craft!
There's a new poll!

Maybe the plural is penai (peen-eye)? Hehe, that is really funny! You look great for being just two weeks out. I read your blog about how you have basically always had a "no-work" flat stomach and turned green with envy. That's the only place my body seems to like to store fat. :-/ Seeing the pics of your post-preg belly made my shade of green turn a little darker. ;-)

I'm glad for your updates! It's great to reading!

You look great! Your belly has shrunk A LOT. Are you wearing a belly brace thing? If so when?

Kristal said...

You don't think there's a difference?? I think there's a huge difference, especially from the side.

I'm glad Isaac's circumcision went well...I didn't realize that most insurance carriers didn't cover them anymore.

Oh, and I love the new header!

No, your tum is definitely going down. I'm a L&D nurse, so I can tell! You can see your hip bone a little better now. You look great!

Are you kidding? I think there's a big difference! Don't be hard on yourself- you're making great progress!

Raquel said...

It sounds like you have been such a busy mommy. And by the way you look great. I love this post, because I too am very nervous about the penis. I think only because I don't have one and well how do you care for such a delicate thing.
I can't wait to see more pics.

Q. and La. said...

I can see a difference too! Do we really have to wait 6 weeks before we can exercise? I too love the header and am so glad I found your blog! I'm a little nervous to see what my belly has to offer after birth...

I think you look great and from here it looks like it's gone done in size considerably since the last post. Don't be so hard on yourself! You are doing a fabulous job and Isaac is only 21 days old!!!
