Bethany’s first Dr. visit

We had to take Bethany to see Dr. Anderson on Monday, May 17th to have her weight and bilirubin level checked. She weighed 6 lbs 8 oz. – not a huge gain, but Dr. Anderson was still happy. Her bilirubin level was higher than when she was in the hospital, but not to a dangerous level. He said that it was typical and that babies typically peak at around 5-6 days. So, overall it was a great visit.

Bethany was an absolute trooper during her heel prick too! She did not cry at all! She did start grunting at the guy because he kept having to squeeze her foot to get enough blood to run the test. I think she was more annoyed with him than in pain!
