Where is Medieval Woman??



Still here! Anxiety is all but gone (thanks to meds and time) - Guy and Miles are one month old today - they are getting fussier, but I've heard this peaks around 4-6 weeks and then dissipates at 8-10 weeks once their circadian rhythms get more set. Otherwise, they're gaining weight like champs and being cute little grubs.

I am feeling tons better with the anemia - the numbers are on the rise and in a couple of weeks I'll have another hemoglobin check. Medieval Mom is here until Saturday, so that's been a big help (she takes the 3am feeding! What have I done to deserve such grace?)

I've started to think about work in the middle of the midnight feeding, when all is quiet on the western front. How will I approach this new article project? What do I need to begin researching first? These are just little synapses firing late at night, but hopefully in a week or so I'll be able to handle some sustained attention to the issue.

Yay for synapses firing! Sounds like everything is as it should be. Congrats!

We know where Medieval Woman is. She's taking care of her two little angels, of course. It's insane, isn't it? But wonderful.

Great that the synapses are firing late at night, but don't push it. They change so fast; you'll never really regret going more slowly on an article. But you would regret missing their everyday changes.

Congrats!

(My word verification is baker. How did they know???)

I love the MW household updates! Glad to hear you and the babes are doing well and that the synapses are firing.

Yay! Lovely to hear how well things are going. Hope those circadian rhythms settle in soon :)

Fie upon this quiet life! said...

Aww! Congrats on making it through the first month. It gets easier after the second month, so you're halfway there!! It's really great that you're getting help with the 3 a.m. feeding too. I never did have that sort of grace -- even now. Boo for me. Anyway - I'm glad to hear that your brain is still ticking and that there is room for thoughts about things other than "did he poop today??" Cheers to you and the family!
