Congrats on getting it done!
Bit of advice: don't flip it up and down during the healing time; pick one position and keep it there 'til it's healed. Flipping it up or down a couple times won't kill you but don't make a regular thing out of it.
Your piercing should be healed enough for a jewelry change in about 8 weeks.
I have 1/2" lobes and 11 piercings: left helix x2, both conches, both nostrils, septum, navel, and VCH.
My lobes are small but I know a lot about stretching and how to do it safely, so message me if you have any questions!
