So glad to hear things are pretty good! Sry about your BP..I am having some issues with mine currently too--but we are expecting agian--so...Family.....love them to death...but ohhh myyyy!!! When my son was born, we told everyone to simply stay away! I know that sounds really harsh, but it was what we felt was safest and best for all of us! We spent about 6 weeks in the NICU ao we decided when he got out we need family time of our own anyway! This was nice, it lasted about a week! We didn't take him out of the house until he was at least 5 months old roughly (except for dr. appot. which killed me) I was so scard of all the germs he would be exposed to! We finally let family start visiting, but we had to simply be firm and tell them how it HAD to be---it was hard--and I felt like a jerk sometimes, but I wouldn't change it for the world today, I still feel it was the best approach!!!
Hang in there hun, I know it is tough right now, but with each day your little one is growing and becoming so much more stronger! Be firm with your family if you need to and tell them "hey--love ya guys, but I need you to understand this is what we NEED, really need right now! They should understand! :) How old is you little one now! Boy or girl!
