Overall I was really weak. It felt like Ella weighed 100 lbs. I was afraid to eat. But at least I wasn't throwing up anymore. Dave was home from work. We blocked off part of the living room and I was on one couch and Dave was on another. Ella played so well. When Ella needed something it was always me doing it. Ella was so good. I still can't believe it. I even told her not to squirm for diaper changes since I was sick. She was so still. Diaper changes were a breeze. By 5 PM or so I could tell she missed leaving the house but she was still so good. If all days had her that pleasant and able to play while I was curled up on the couch I could do so many things on my laptop on the couch or just do so many things in general.
Every time Ella fell asleep on me to nap, I just napped and let her nap on me. I wasn't chancing trying to get her in the crib with how lightheaded I was. I was so dehydrated that I needed to give Ella pumped milk. I would always start with that so at each feeding she drank out of the straw and then nursed next. She always wants to nurse right before bed so I wanted to make sure she could do that. In the morning I did try to start out with her taking a sippy cup but she refused.
I ate crackers throughout the day and shared them with Ella. We made a big mess. I could say she made a big mess but I made my share of crumbs too.
