Doctor Appointment Update


Well, we had to take Audrey back to the doctor today to check her weight to make sure she was gaining. Her appointment was today at 9:15 am. Turns out she is gaining weight just fine! Today she weighed 5 pounds 13 ounces. She was up four ounces from Monday, exactly where she is supposed to be. {thank goodness!} Apparently when babies are born their thyroid kicks in because they no longer rely on mommas so they take blood 24 hours after birth to check the thyroid level. Apparently her level was high {little did I know} and they needed to take blood again today to make sure it was leveling back out. (Thyroid levels can be higher in premature babies…completely normal.) So they took her back to the lab to take blood. Oh.My.Gosh y’all, you would have thought they were doing something terrible by the way her daddy was acting. We could hear her crying from down the hall and her daddy just wanted her back in his arms. It was hard to hear her cry {since she never cries} but since I have a son I guess I was just a little used to it. (Kiddos get lots o’ shots!) We should know the results of her thyroid in another week or so. She goes back for her one month check up on August 16th. I begin classes for my masters degree on August 22nd. Time is a flyin’. And because I can’t resist posting pictures of our sweet baby girl…a small preview of her baby pictures done by the amazing Blaire Perry {check out her website here}.
