Well, I am thankful and happy to say that I started today at my new job. I am now the perinatal educator/lactation counselor (soon consultant;) at a local hospital. WHEW!!! I'm exhausted. I was honored to see my first IRL vag birth...mom did amazing. Did I say I was exhausted. I ran around the unit, from l &d, nicu, nursery, postpartum, and ob...holy moly. I haven't walked that much or been that hectic in a long time! Anyway, I can't wait till I get used to this job a bit...I know the first few weeks are hard. When I got home tonight, I layed(sp?) in bed for almost an hour without moving before I did anything. This is the first out of the house, full time work I've had in over four years. HOLY SHIT! I'm laughing because I'm so happy and ecstatic to have gotten this job but my body is screaming, WTF?
Anyway, I'll stop venting now. Thanks for reading if you made it this far!
