Is anyone else having a hard time with blogger lately? I don't know what they changed, or if it's just our computer, but I can no longer drag the pictures I upload to new locations. I am also having a hard time getting it to let me type where I want to (ie between pictures). Is this just me?
Onto more important things.... Ezekiel weighs 5lbs 3.9oz today. He's getting nice and chunky. He's starting to get nice fat baby thighs, oh so cute. He's so precious. We are working on his suck/swollow/breathe reflex. Right now he has a hard time remembering to swollow, so we are dipping his paci in milk or sugar water (blah!) and feeding it to him so he can try to just swollow one drop at a time. He seems to be doing well! Hopefully soon we will be able to try and breastfeed him. He will be full-term on tuesday. I can't believe it! He will be 13 weeks on wednesday, and he will be three months on thursday. What a big week for him!
In other news (why is this my new favorite phrase?), I haven't lost a SINGLE pound since Ezekiel was born. In fact, I have gained 3 or 4lbs. What is wrong with my body?! Barring halloween night, I haven't been eating junk food at all. In fact I don't think I was eating enough food period for a while, because my milk supply dropped, and then when I started eating more it went back up again. I have never been so..... curvy(?) in my life. I gained 30 lbs while I was pregnant. Wow. Today I got out all my size 6 jeans and decided to give them to a friend. I'm pretty sure I will never wear those again. I've kept them for, oh, I don't know, 7 years?? The size 8's, though, I took out (actually taped one pair to the pantry door downstairs!) to remind me that I want my figure back. I need to start excercizing. The main thing, though, is that I think my thyroid is completely out of wack. I mean, I've never met a woman who didn't loose at least 5-10lbs post-partum. I am 3 months post partum and weigh MORE than I did while I was pregnant. Hello!!!!! I have a doctors appointment friday, and I am hoping that they will check my thyroid levels and give me a prescription for cynthroid (thyroid meds) so that my body can start working again. I mean, I am soo exausted all the time. I sleep a good 7-8 hours every night, and still have no energy all day. Coffee hardly works at all, and without coffee I am seriously a complete zombie. I could fall asleep standing up. It's that bad. Normally I am not a prescription sort of person, and would rather "tough it out" than take a tylenol for a headache, but I can't take feeling so crappy and being so chunky anymore. And there is nothing to fix a broken thyroid other than medicine. Grr.
Oh someone, please just wave a magic wand and give me back my cute little figure. I miss feeling comfortable in my own skin.
