Today was the last day of my maternity leave - and it was the first day of Paul's working from home schedule. I decided I was going to hang back and leave Evy up to him so I knew he'd be okay by himself on Friday and every day after that. He did pretty good, but stressed out a bit when Evy was crying because he was worried he'd get a phone call or something. I showed him how to use the Snugi Carrier for when he needed his hands but Evy was insisting to be held, and we also decided to replace his Bluetooth headset so he could use his mobile phone hands-free if Evy needed him.
I also went to the doctor's today for my 6-week postpartum checkup. I made the appointment with the same doctor who delivered Evy, even though I'm not a fan of his. I didn't have to wait too long and the exam was VERY fast, a little too fast actually. I worry he didn't ask the kind of questions I assumed he would ask such as, "How are you feeling?" and "Tell me about your recovery period" and stuff like that. He basically plunged his hand into my girly bits, confirmed that my uterus had returned to it's pre-pregnancy size and was on his way. In fact, it almost seemed like he didn't remember me. I wouldn't be surprised, I'm sure he sees a lot of patients. But! I was glad to be out of there and I figure if I want a more thorough exam I can wait until I find a girly doctor I feel comfortable with.
Oh, and according to the scale at the doctor's office - I've lost 28lbs since having Evy. Considering I gained around 40lbs during my pregnancy I still have a ways to go. But I'm not stressing about it. I haven't been watching what I'm eating since I gave birth, but once I go back to work I'm going to use that schedule to put myself on a good eating habits and I'm sure with a good diet on a good schedule it'll continue to melt off.
Anyhoo. Maternity leave is over. My 24/7 Evy time is over. Now it'll be more like... 14/4 & 24/3.
