Any other 10 month mamas out there? - Page 3

post #41 of 44

Congrats greenmulberry. I couldn't read and not respond, I came very close to being C-sectioned myself. I hope you are healing well and getting good rest. I know it's hard without having anyone around to help, it's just me and hubby too. I hope every day things are getting better for you, I'm sure they will in time. And echoing PP, it's definitely OK to mourn the loss of the birth you had wanted if that's what you feel, it's what you need to do to get past it and heal yourself. Take care mama.

greenmullberry, cograts on the arrival of you LO. Sound like your baby just wasnt ready to be born yet greensad.gif I'm so sorry you ended up with a section. I hope you are being well taken care of so you can heal. I wanted to reiterate that it's completely okay to grieve the loss of the birth you wanted. Ignore anyone who tells you to 'just be grateful you have a healthy baby' - the birth and the baby are two separate things; of course you are happy your baby is healthy, duh. But you can still be bummed about the birth. www.ican-online.org is a great resource. There is also a great yahoo group which was instrumental in my own healing. Many gentle hugs to you.

Thank you both for the kind words. What makes me sad was not being there for her right away because of being drugged up and in pain. So many things got started differently than I had wanted but we are making up for lost time now.smile.gif

Nod... I remember the realization that everyone there (some family and friends) all held my first son before I was even out of surgery. 10 years later and it still stings a little. Take care of yourself mama (or better yet, let other people take care of you smile.gif )
