Project BG2, Week 9 – Changes

May 5, 2011 Project BG2 6

Yay! My baby is 9 weeks old! I really can’t wait to get home and hold her and kiss her again, missing her so much! She had her 2-month appt at the Pediatrician on Tuesday and it’s wasn’t what I hoped for. She weighed in at 12lbs 12oz and 22in long, which is good, I guess. I wanted her to gain more weight, but I guess since we recently switched her to the Enfamil Gentlease, which has less carbs, she’s not packing that many calories. I know that as long as she’s gaining weight then it’s not a problem, but still, I’d like her to gain a good amount.

The doctor says she has an ear infection and a little cold, which worries me. I know it’s just a cold, but she’s only two months! I swear I am such a worry-wart and beyond paranoid with this girl it’s not even funny. I suspect she got it from The Hubbi who had a cold recently, even though he wore a mask and washed his hands a lot, he still had to take care of her and maybe it was inevitable. It does kind of upset me though because I was hoping the maternal antibodies would help but she didn’t even have a fever so they may not be kicking in right??!?! Ugh!!! This is so frustrating!!!

He prescribed some antibiotics for her and also gave her a cream for her eczema, which is looking a lot better, thank goodness. And, of course, everyone’s least favorite part, she took 3 shots to the thighs and wasn’t very happy about it. She took it like a champ and cried for a little bit but was otherwise good.

I hope she gets over this infection quickly, he says that’s probably why she’s been extra fussy lately. Also, he was a bit concerned about her drinking 3-4oz every 2 hours because he says she should be going longer if she’s drinking that much, but he said as long as she’s taking it and not spitting it all back up, then we should let her drink as much as she wants. Oh, I pray that everything’s normal with BG2 and that her GI just burns through it quickly w/o any complications.

I know I’ve become one of those crazy mothers who try to protect their children from having ANYTHING happen to them, when we all know that’s impossible, but I can’t help it. I’m trying to think positive though and not dwell on the “what if’s” so finger’s crossed!

Now for the best part.

    She is so so cute! I love her little dress. I know how easy it is to worry, but I have learned with my 2nd that you know what's right. I was told that he should be satisfied with what I was giving him, but he wasn't. He just ate and ate and didn't ever spit anything up. He was hungry, I fed him. He is very long and skinny. His ped finally just told us that he just has a high metabolism. Thankfully he has slowed a bit.
    Babies can be so complicated sometimes lol! I hope she starts feeling better soon so you can move to the next worry (they never end do they).
